By the way, the winner of this gets 100 minerals.
Why randomize the weapons and then put actual stakes on the game? You're basically asking us to throw away considerations for weapons and devolve into what the last game was: a popularity contest.

I've no need for 100 minerals, so if I win, I'll give 20% of the prize (20 minerals) to each of the next five closest people. That significantly improves your chances of getting some prize if you're in the top half or bottom quarter of the bracket. Yay socialism.

Magic box god; Suck it Corbo

I would argue that a butter knife would fare better than handcuffs in a fight. In light of that fact, I vote Wing Zero.

I would donate my 100 minerals prize to the orphan's fund if I were to win.
In the rare case that they cannot accept mineral donations I'll just host a joke telling contest to distribute the prize.

I just added minerals to incentivize actually voting because it didn't seem like many people were participating thus far. I assumed that mostly everyone would vote for themselves each round, and I don't think that'll change now that there is a prize, so I'm not really sure how that will affect the results of each round.

1. This is going to last for fucking ever if you have 36 hours of voting for each individual match-up. There's no reason you can't do 4 at a time, for example.

2. Who wins in the event of a tie?

3. For every round that I win, the first X people that voted for me that got me over the winning margin shall receive 25 minerals. Offer applies only to accounts created before 6th of June 2015 that are demonstrably not fake accounts (eg, require activity and forum posts, not someone's alt account). As of writing this, I have 1254 minerals.

For example if I receive 7 votes and the enemy receives 3 votes, the first 4 people that voted for me will receive 25 minerals each.

The nail filer is merely my ceremonial weapon; my true weapon is my fat wallet.

Thanks for adding the weapons to the brackets. Otherwise I couldn't have been bothered to vote. Here goes, Green wins:


Voted 70% on weapon, heavily buffing the hilarious ones (who can fight properly when someone with a stinkin' sneaker runs at you yelling like a madman? :D )
But sometimes I had to favor loyalties. ;)
Players who seem to tryhard to win automatically lost my vote. At least for that round.
I didn't vote for myself because while my weapon is probably one of the best it's also the most boring.

Idk, wouldn't it only last like 6 days? I don't think that's too long.

That actually is a good question. I need to figure that out. Maybe just whoever got the more votes first ends up moving on. So if you got 6 votes while the person you were facing had 5, and then someone else voted for them, you'd still move on. Though that doesn't seem like a very good system...

>be faceless void >mfw I have no face

wat da

Guise please, take into consideration person as well as weapon, it don't matter what kind of knife Wing Zero has, he can't take me down to my competitive nature. In addition, I have watched Kung FuryKung Fury and learned greatly from it, allowing me to easily out-maneuver Wing Zero and take him down. Also, hand-cuffs are essentially nunchucks in the hands of yours truly, with greater reach and more devastating power than any measly butter knife.

MY VOTES ARE AS FOLLOWS:

Azrael
Oh_Man (Australian, they vicious criminals, nuff said)
Ahli (even if he misses, a rocket launcher is a hefty weapon, and I haven't seen pictures of Ez to think he is big enough to deal with that)
ShadowFlare
Lanthanide (crossbows are pretty useless if you're a nub like devourer :hurr:)
Jack
Vrael (corbo no idea how to use umbrella due to living on a desert island)
Zycorax (2 drones = hatchery plus mine minerals, Kite Shield is very little offensive power, given enough time Zycorax will be able to build up a Zerg army and ezpz win)
Roy (pepper spray not that easy to land when you're in a windy desert city, and some flashlights are pretty hefty and dangerous)
RIVE (this one was really hard, on the one hand if you put the metal helmet on then you're pretty tanky, but RIVE will be able to juke and kite rayNimagi's headbutt attempts while hitting his other vulnerable body parts)
Sacrieur (javelin is pretty useless in hand-to-hand combat and it's unlikely zsnakezz can land a javelin shot against a single target who can see it coming)
Fire_Kame
GeneralPie (also a difficult choice, claymores are rather difficult to use)
Excalibur
NudeRaider (unfair challenge O_O)
Loveless (kid's a ex-military fulla, he will win just about anything no matter what the weapons)




Red classic.

"In short, their absurdities are so extreme that it is painful even to quote them."

Jun 7 2015, 9:51 am cronos Post #38



this looks fun

Azrael - old sneaker stinks
Oh_Man - rope can't get near baseball bat
EzDay281 - can't shoot rocket in stabby range
ShadowFlare - pipe has more range and can hit thrown rock like a baseball
Devourer - nail filer stinks against crossbow
Wing Zero - knife wins even if you get handcuffed
Corbo - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HoKxUK6izCY
lil-Inferno - drones are worst unit in starcraft
BloodyZombie117 - pepper spray has good range
rayNimagi - metal helmet can headbutt you to death
Sacrieur - javelin is too easy to miss
Fire_Kame - stick stinks
GeneralPie - string stinks
Excalibur - katana cuts through belt easy
A_of-s_t - knife can be thrown and good up close
poiuy_qwert - frying pan will splatter him



None.

The blood-red sun set in the western sky as I traversed the cracked earth in search of my nemesis. It was tremendously hot, as it always was, and the only shade afforded in this part of the wasteland was granted by the occasional cactus and my trusty METAL HELMET, which stifled my head.

There was probably no human being within twenty miles. Except for him, maybe. The man was probably no different from myself, living out in the wasteland like a poor, miserable creature. I was told he was out near the ruins, and if I didnít find him, they would find me.

So I marched onward, towards the old city. A shame they couldnít save it. I saw a few pieces of broken glass glistening in the sunlight as I followed the cracked pavement. I reckoned I had about one hour before the desert went completely dark.

Finally I reached the outskirts of the city. A tall heap of rubble served as my vantage point. I wrenched a metal rod from the ruins and practiced swinging it like a sword. This would have to do.

I waited forever I heard the clank of broken glass. I scanned the horizon, and I saw a gray figure half a mile away. He looked weak. Alone.

Just like me.

I pushed the thought away and silently left the mound, crouching as I neared his hiding place with my helmet on head and makeshift weapon in hand. Heís a human, just like me.

I saw the man, the person, hunched over a fire, burning scraps in a steel barrel. I was fifty yards away, and approaching from behind.

Forty.
Twenty.
Ten.
Five.

It was time.

I sprinted the last few steps and swung my rod as hard as I could, shouting as I made contact.

The crack of bone was deafening all the same. And he wasnít dead just yet. Immediately the man turned around, saw me, and swung a bag of BROKEN GLASS at my head. I felt a mere scratch as the manís glass crashed against my helmet.

I swung again, and the man fell down, covered in his own blood. I could see him wincing from the pain, unable to continue. His eyes looking up at me. In that moment, I felt pity for him. Heís a human, just like me.

I donít like to think about what happened after that. Itís a reminder of my humanity. I want to tell RIVEís family that Iím sorry, but I canít bring myself to remember that ugly day. Whenever someone asks me it, all I can do is push those thoughts away and remark, ďPatrolling the Mojave almost makes you wish for a nuclear winter.Ē

Votes
Azrael - Smoke grenades blind opponent
Oh_Man - I'm guessing Farty doesn't know how to lasso, so a baseball bat would probably win
Ahli - Rocket launcher < screwdriver, even if he misses all three rockets
ShadowFlare - You can probably throw a pipe just as well as a rock, and it would do more damage
Devourer - Crossbow hits at range
Wing Zero - Close match. Jack might hesitate making a killing blow.
Vrael - One hit from a taser does more damage than ten from an umbrella
lil-inferno - I'm assuming the drones are weak quadcopters
Roy - Could blind the opponent at a higher distance, or throw the flashlight, grapple with Krayzee to disarm his pepper spray and use it against him
rayNimagi - See above. Helmet protects from broken glass.
zsnakezz - Javelin can be used like a spear. Better range than fists
|)ark_ssj9Kevin - more likely to turn super saiyan
Mini Moose 2707 - Can fight defensively to avoid claymores. Uses massive antlers to attack Generalpie.
Excalibur - Katana cuts belt. Ex would not hesitate to deal a killing blow
NudeRaider - Pistol beats knife except in cases of stealth
LoveLess - Use grenades to stun, then steal the frying pan



Win by luck, lose by skill.

Votes have been tallied for round 1. I will update the OP in a little while (have to get to work soon). I'll be doing write-ups for each match-up, but seeing as how they will take a while, they won't be at the conclusion of each round. I'll post them as soon as I finish writing for all match-ups in a round.

ray, voting ended at 8:30 am EST, so I cannot use your votes.
