Last year, right around this time, I started the Tug of War game, and it became the first big forum game here. I know, props and all. But then, things got hectic with me trying to do epic level counts (we got into the -1000>0>1000 games) for each game, then contracting mono, etc, etc.
But now, I have more than enough time to stick with this game and give it my full attention! And it'll give me something to do when grinding missions in EVE.
So without further ado, I present to you, again, the
Tug of War
Rules are fairly simple and straightforward. Each game starts at 0. Each game has a high and low goal, which, for the first game, will be +100 and -100. To play, you post your team, the Up or Down team, and then the previous number +1 or -1, followed by the resulting number. For example:
While yes, you could just have the +1 or -1 and the resultant number, it makes things a lot clearer to have the original number as well. Last game we had like ten people posting within seconds of one another, and often overlapping their numbers. Including the original number you tugged up or down from really helps sort out tangles like that.
A few extra little housekeeping rules: no double posting, unless to bump a page. Someone came up with that idea last game, and it was a great idea. Sorry I can't thank you by name, but if you're reading this, you know who so are. Props dude! Oh right, and I double post just to start off the first game.For each game, you have to pick a team and stick with it, don't jump ship or anything. We tried that rule last game, and it ended up being a whole lot funner.
And finally, before I get this party started, I will, once again, do the awesome thing that made the last game so bloody popular. I will do counts. At the end of each game, we'll take a brief hiatus while I go back and count up all the posts made by EVERYONE during the last game and tally them up. Then we'll have an MVP for all teams, and and MVP for the Up and Down team. MVPs get karma. We'll also have little achievements to get too, which I won't tell what they are. They're secret, at least until the first game is done.
Right, I think that's everything. Under this I'll edit to update for each new game.
A new round just began on page 14, second post!
-200 < 0 > 200
Read the last page to see where the score is at before posting!
Let's get this party started!
Merged Mith, it's called a merger. Besides, you were not in GM at the time of the decision so BLAH. Still doesn't explain your initial betrayal
pfft.. quit struggling you're only making this harder on yourself
It's already too easy for me.
-22 - 1 = -23
The off-topic regulars must be vary confused about all the Demigod nonsense guys
Well it's pretty much all DG people here anyway
I knew you and Split would be on the same team. You guys are inseparable.
you're the only person helping your team.. but it's not enough!
I can fight my own battles
nope.. because every post you make will be followed by a down! You can hold us off for a little bit.. but you can't turn it around w/out help
we're makin progress
progress is good!
zomg. **Down team is 1/4 of the way to the goal!**
You guys are so disgusting, you guys should come to Toronto and get married cause it's legal here.
definitely falling behind
omg I'm watching glee and it's so intense.
-24 - 1 = -25
I finished my project on Gideon v. Wainwright.
lol you are the only one who merged so i don't call it a merger
eh cmon guys can't we all get along.
Where's the fun in getting along? It's not a game w/out competition.
Because it's gone now. The clan no longer exists unless you start a new one that mimics the old one, but then it would just end up being stupid. Oh but you should stay in Boxxy, cause there's no where else to go.
and now we can turn the tide of the Battle.
Clans in general I dislike, too much dedication and responisibility. Wherever you go, you carry the image of the clan w/ you and stuff... so I go stag whenever I play online.
oh noes Up pretending like they can come back!
