Survivor - Warlight

Outpick, Outpersuade, Outplay




EDIT: The game has started but if you're interested in playing in a sequel - if it ever happens - warlight mail me and I'll add you to the list.




This is the Warlight Forums.
A place of rational thought and egomaniacal rants. These 20 players are about to begin the tournament of a lifetime. Sort of. They come with different sorts of strategies. But they have one thing in common: they all play Warlight. And first impressions have already formed - in some cases, a long time ago. What will happen when these explosive personalities collide? It is the ultimate challenge. Teams of 10 must work together while battling the other team... and their egos - or they'll be voted out. In the end, only one will remain to claim the million dollar prize*.

39 templates! 20 people! 1... Survivor!

*prize money is slightly imaginary




Okay, so I'd like to start a long-form tournament styled after Survivor, the reality television show. It'll have 20 players - initially divided into tribes of 10. You'll go through challenges, some way to test the tribes against each other. This might be, for example, a series of 1v1s played between the various players on each team. The losing tribe will then have to vote out one of their members. This will repeat until - at some point - the tribes will merge. At this point the challenges go from having a winning tribe to a winning player. Only that one player is immune from the vote.




Challenge rules: I'll explain challenges as we come to them. They are all preplanned, but details won't be released ahead of time. When they're explained, tribes will then have 3 days to set their lineups - choosing which players will play in which games. Anything unselected will be randomized. Tribes
Once we've hit the merge and we don't have 2 tribes, there will sometimes be impromptu teams formed. If I give you the choice to form teams, you'll have 3 days to pick these teams or I'll randomize the remaining players.
There will be a small number of reward challenges, which will not confer immunity but will confer some other bonus.

Tribes:
In addition to the games that will make up the challenges, there will be "games" which will make up the tribes. These won't really be played to win, they'll just allow for easier tribe and private chat.
Before the merge, tribes will be asked to refrain from talking to members of the other tribe, unless they happen to be in a challenge game against someone from the other tribe - in which case, talking is just fine. Seriously though, unless you're in game, don't talk or strategize or anything with players on the other team

Voting:
Once a challenge has finished, I'll announce that it is over and the losing tribe or - post merge - everyone will have 3 days to vote. Everyone must vote by sending me forum messages and everyone must vote.

Templates:
Almost all (95% or more) of the games played will be 1v1, 2v2 or 3v3. I'm not going to release or say more, except to say that most of them are taken from the Warlight Champions League or the Seasonal Ladders.

Requirements:
Less than 5% boot rate EDIT: Honestly, this may not be practical. I'll probably bend this if you give a good reason/proof you won't vanish.
At least 100 games, 1v1, 2v2 or 3v3 (total, not each)
Willingness to commit to a long, long tournament. It'll take a few months at the very least. Probably more. Vacations will be honored though, so :).
No more than one other clan member in the game. EDIT: We're having trouble filling up slots so if there is more than one other, let me know what number you'd be for your clan and I'll make a call. 3 is definitely fine. 4 maybe. 5 probably not. I'm also going to be posting who's in what clan so it's public knowledge (not that you couldn't look it up, but so that it's convenient public knowledge). That way it's an added game dimension - a feature and not a bug if you will.

Don't delay. Seriously.

i wish i had not played so many real time games when i first joined... i think that is why my boot rate is just under 15%... but i don't qualify. will there be a way for people to "watch" the games after they are played? or will only people that are in it know what is happening?

Yeah I think 5% might be too restrictive. I've edited it.

gg didn't you use to have a 25% boot rate? That's some serious progress in such a short time, I think you should mention that, it'll help your case ;)

Is it ABSOLUTELY one person per clan? I'll sign up if you're filling spots....


And....well....my boot rate is REALLY high. But that is honestly just a lot of ignorance from my noob days, and I do add to it when I'm playing real time diplos on my phone, and I'll set it down and forget about it. But it's been steadily dropping since I was in UN with 32% boot.

Yeah, I'm having trouble, so sure, you're in. I added this to the first post:

"We're having trouble filling up slots so if there is more than one other, let me know what number you'd be for your clan and I'll make a call. 3 is definitely fine. 4 maybe. 5 probably not. I'm also going to be posting who's in what clan so it's public knowledge (not that you couldn't look it up, but so that it's convenient public knowledge).
