Welcome to Hell
« on: July 31, 2009, 09:50:57 AM »



Pyoko.

Pyoko never changes.


WELCOME TO THE WORSTLYMPICS

BAND TOGETHER AND FIGHT FOR SURVIVAL!

YOU HAVE UNTIL THE 3RD!


DECLARE INTENTION TO FORM NATIONS WITH YOUR BEST FRIENDS OR THOSE YOU FEAR AND ENVY AS POWERFUL!

Nations should be 2-4 dudes total! Possibilities of change to this will be decided on the 3rd!

Interest Threads are incredibly important. If an event has too little interest by it's start date, I will shrug my shoulders, loudly say "Less work for me!" to my empty room, and leave it locked.

New Events proposed and a general shaping of the Worstlympics will occur by the 7th.

I recommend banding together in nations, but we probably will hammer out a system for individuals and maybe even bloody mercenaries by the 7th.

Join Nations you lazy bastards. God, so many of you are piping up in multiple events and then going silent in the Nation-building thread. Things are gonna get cuh-razy with so many rogues and mercs.

Frocto May Cry and Magic Draft made official events. Greco-Werewolf also has my blessing and SCD seems to have run with that, go post in that thread if you wanna play.

Opened up interest threads for MAME Arcade Fightin', More Writing Contests, and to organize some web-Diplomacy. Placing the impetus for Diplomacy upon Kazz. Placing the impetus for some debate and agreeing on a game or a topic on all of you: if a bunch of scattered individuals can't agree on what to play or write, it's no skin off my back.

I think Worst Fanart Ever is another valid contest but there should be multiple fields. I'll ruminate on it a bit.

NetHack and WoW Armory are already open and there's nothing to stop you from practicing or even actively writing for several contests that you can already preview. Nobody will care if five fully-written entries for writing contests appear the same day they open. I believe the Flag Contest begins tomorrow and Dorf Fort the day after, then there'll be things steadily unlocking almost every day. Yell at me in PM if I forget, eh?

There also appear to be enough topics to warrant two pages for them all, so depending on your view options, don't forget to check.

"Finalized" Nations.

Kabbage and Zara please decide the ultimate fate of your two nations and your illicit alliance.

Ok time to browse every fucking interest thread and send PMs to people who can't figure out why those six threads at the top are all bolded.

The Flag Contest has been extended to the 9th.

The "Hey, stupid!" PMs have been sent to nearly ten people, so the nations might flesh out dramatically?!

Dorf Fort extended to eight years.

Super Mario Brothers 3 is currently the go-to for Let's Speed!

The Schedule Thread exists and is better.


Rogues/Mercenaries

Although Metal Slime is the only direct mercenary so far, I consider Rogues and Mercenaries interchangeable and offer them a powerful choice. In other words, the four people identified as loners thus far can do either of the following, but only one per event they enter.

Mercenary Act: Attribute your entry to a single nation, for better or for worse.

Rogue Act: Your entry is the entry to beat. If you are the best Mario Kart player and win the #1 spot, no formal nation gets the gold medal. Proceed to Step 4: gloat heartily.

If you want to join a nation or ask anything about this, do so via PM or openly in the Select Country thread.

If I think you're trying to pull one over, I will penalize you in that contest and then the nation you did it with. Emphasis on think. If it can appear shady, don't do it.

Let's Speed will open by the 13th or earlier.

I'll produce them myself by the 13th, but if you wish to produce the saves every contestant will be using and speed up the start date, I need savestates of:

Super Mario Brothers 3 (Prefer Mario All-STars for ZNES uniformity) - Get to the last two stages(the airship finale and the one before) in world 5, 6 or 7. I will do research to see which is the most interesting and decide on one, but anything you produce to help will be useful. Try to arrive without any "God Mode" powers. Super-P, Hammer Bro Suit, a bunch of Stars(maybe one?), and if water challenging the Frog suit.. all denied. I will however accept a Tanuki. If I am forgetting any god mode items, then here is a general disclaimer that use of such as deemed by myself and the judges will incur point penalties.

Super Bomberman 2(SNES) - Get to the stage before the boss fight of each world(any world), so that your save goes: Stage Before Boss, Boss Fight, Giant Robo Boss Fight. Try to arrive with a decent mix of power-ups: decent bomb spread, at least 3 bombs to put down at a time, and either the kick OR the glove. No Timer Bombs. Subject to debate and final decision. I will do research to see which is the most interesting and decide on one, but anything you produce to help will be useful.

Wacky Norondor Game(I dunno) - Norondor or somebody familiar with this must contact me and help produce criteria and savestates similar to the above. Failure to do so means you only get the two choices above.

Super Metroid - Blah Blah Blah Detonator Blah Blah Blah. Open to debate.

Ok I know some of you like don't read threads, but let me set some standards forward:

That is your problem, not mine.

If you have circumstances or whatever, gimme a PM and maybe my black heart of ice will melt a little.

Otherwise the dates listed are as they are listed within reason of 11:59 PM Eastern Time. If you are a wacky tacky west coaster and you need those extra three hours, I'm willing to listen.

And here's some exciting news anyway!

Thanks to Detonator's sage advice, I'm going to extend midnight deadlines to 9 AM Eastern the next morning! Wow!

The Flag Contest is still final. Kabbage and Guild take a -1 and I'm just going to flat out ignore any other entries.

It's a thankless job, but necessary for the Olympics to function. This wouldn't be possible without your hard work, Doom. I appreciate it.

Does this mean that there will be a new event? 1500m freestyle bitching?

I think it is a noble stance, Doom, and it also helps me to continue being the current winner of Worstlympics.
