Cool >ssiii< ROUND ONE - Let the games begin!



WELCOME TO SSIII!


Below are the teams:

TEAM ONE
Captain: Nate (Nate)
shaggy735 (Simon)
Ricky the Kid (Rick)
Doug Graham (Doug)
magman1621 (?)

TEAM TWO
Captain: NickHammy (Nick)
Kornbix (?)
air_canada (Sam)
da12ken (?)
bostonsportsfan (Sean)

The teams were picked by myself to include a combination of players who have played this game before, and who have and haven't been on the boards for a while. The captains were chosen to be the player on each team with the highest standing on any previous SS game on the SCMB (Nick #2 in SSI, and Nate #1 in SSII). The SOLE FUNCTION of the captain is to create a team name. He can discuss it with his teammates if he wishes via PMs or in the appropriate thread on this board. Captains are NOT excluded from any Locker Room Votes and its only role is to determine the final team name.

Refer to the first post in this thread for complete game rules.

Information on Challenge 1.1 is comming up soon....

CHALLENGE 1.1


Welcome to Challenge 1.1 -- each challenge in Round 1 is a team challenge. You are all competing for the Goofy Trophy, which allows your team to stay on the "playing surface" while the other team must go to the Locker Room to vote one of their own team members off of the team.

This first challenge will test your ability to work as a team. In order to win this challenge, you must post, in a specified thread, increasing numbers (by 1). No member can post twice in a row. For example, if the first member on your team posts in the thread, they start at "1," the next person posts "2," "3," "4," etc., etc. etc.

Some of you may recall that we did a challenge like this in SSII. THIS CHALLENGE IS DIFFERENT FROM THAT ONE, HOWEVER, BECAUSE THERE IS A TWIST!!! That is, both teams will be posting in the SAME THREAD.

Now, here's the tricky part:

If the thread goes like this:
Team A player 1: 1
Team A player 2: 2
Team A player 3: 3
Team A player 1: 4
Team A player 4: 5
Team A player 1: 6
Team B player 1: 1

ie, Team B "intersects" the progress Team A is making, then Team A must start all over again.

The winner of this challenge, therefore, will be the team that has gone the farthest at any point in this thread without be "intersected." So say Team A gets a string of 10 in a row... Team B goes and gets 5 in a row... then Team A gets 20... Team B 11... Team A 2... Team B 19... then Team A would win because they had the longest string of anyone at 20.

SUMMARY:
You must post in this specified thread.
A single player cannot post twice in a row.
Your team must start over if another team "intersects" you.
When a team "intersects" the other, they must start over.
Counting always begins at 1, [b]NOT/[b] 0.
If at any point one of these rules is not followed by a player, the team that player is on LOSES the Challenge and must go to a Locker Room Vote.

This challenge ends on Tuesday, January 14 2003 at 6PM EST.

Thanks. Please don't look at the source (especially you being an "expert" HTML programmer )-- I know it sucks and that's 'cuz I did it all in literally 15 minutes or less. If you want to see good coding and coding style, see my personal site, lmanchur/ON-LINE :nod:

The challenge is nearly over and Team2 is winning. This has got to be a challenge of endurace -- you guys are spending too much time there -- I'm bored READING it ... i couldn't imagine participating in it!!!! Hahahaha... An endurance challenge, really!!

...a few of you were commenting on the amount of posts in that thread. Not all will be this type of game (posting games). Remember, this is sportssurvivor. I'm lining things up and the next challenge should be sports related.

By now you should be aligning strategies... with others or maybe your strategy will be to not have one with others at all. The game can be won many different ways, but communicate with your teammates and remember to play smart. The winning team of this challenge gains immunity for the first Locker Room Vote. The losing team goes to the Locker Room and will vote one of their own members off of the "playing surface." This person will not have anything further to do with the game(the people voted off after the first person will come back at the end of the game to cast the final vote to determine the champion of SSIII).

Default CHALLENGE 1.1 COMPLETE



Team #1 has won Challenge 1.1 and thus, has won the first Goofy Trophy. CONGRATS AND REJOICE!!: :goof:

CHALLENGE 1.1
Final Standings

1. Team 1, 194
2. Team 2, 170
3. Team 1, 103

Each member of Team #2 must send me their Locker Room #1 votes to me. What you have to do is send me the name of the person you are voting out, along with a reason or short statment. ALL STATEMENTS WILL REMAIN ANONYMOUS.

Send me your votes via the SCMB Private Messaging Sytem. You have approximately 48 hours, until Thursday at 6PM EST, to cast your votes. You CANNOT vote for yourself and must vote for one of the other four members on your team (Team 2).

The player voted out in this round ONLY will be gone for the REMAINDER OF THE GAME (players voted off in remaining Locker Room Votes will vote for the winner in Stage 3 of SSIII).
