OS vs. nubs sounds pretty good, but I really wish we had 3 teams.

2 teams makes it easier though

I'll wait for atleast 15 votes.

Three team draft seems to be the best, and most likely the fairest. And three teams I think would increase the competition.

Actually, if I remember the last contest correctly, the third team wasn't even close to being competition - in fact, most of them didn't work very hard at it (again, if I remember correctly.)

I like the 2 team draft.

I would say not to have self pick at all, probably get to one sided.


3 teams sounds like it would be cool but if one team has people that don't try very hard then it would suck for the other people on the team, therefore i vote os vs. noobs

ya definately no self pick.... i see it going on in PBN's and it's pathetic.

I chose 2 teams with a draft just because I wasn't sure how well the OS vs. noobs thing would work.

I'd make sure it works out. Having both teams working is crucial... if just 1 works the game si lame

I say draft because i think os vs. ns would be a lil unfair.

2 teams. the third team last year did literally nothing until the contest was pretty much over. i dont care if its a draft, or OS vs whatever. ill be fine with either one.

As long as I qualify for OS, then OS v nubs would be sweet

what are we defining as OS here? the mothership, or one year?

users with us longest, top scorers in last years hunt... basically we take from the top until the teams look fair.

os it is.

vikingshadow

Thing is, we have a lot of "OS" members coming back - but haven't posted in a while. Do they qualify as OS because technically, they are more old school than some of you!

Also, taking the best from the original game isn't really fair for the nub team. This will be the first time for them, and unfamiliar territory, while some of you already know where to go to find the chores. I say make it a draw and make it fair....

But I'm just a judge, so what do I know????

07-09-2007, 02:45 PM
vike, i agree that that needs to be hammered out.

how is the task list being handled? will it be first to do a task, or who does the most tasks for the most points?

HelpDeskHustler
07-09-2007, 03:15 PM
I'm doing an average of two ranks.

how long they've been with KUSA/SOC (if you were in the old forums, now is the time to say so, otherwise i'll use the current reg date) then by who scored the most.

so AS AN EXAMPLE: phatphil may rank 1st in member with kusa longest
but he ends up in 3rd for most points in the last scav hunt. that gives him an average of 2. Lower Averages are MORE OS than higher averages.

the ranking in the old one will by simply by points, not how many tasks they did. sorry... i don't feel like reading all of those pages.

07-09-2007, 03:21 PM
i personally think we should just go by join date...

I sorta just grabbed the top 8 and pushed the rest of the people into their original spots, but you'd have probably been pretty high up there if i sorted you.

newcomers need to pick a mascot. here's my contribution, use it if you want.

How about that one it needs a little touching up because i'm not to great. That is an O at the end of Dangerous but looks a little like a G.

see if you guys can do it in a more simplistic design. Keep in mind that these need to be printed so people can show them in their contest - some people don't have colored printers. also they don't have to be evil...

Did somebody say mascot?

If you don't like the name Project: Toaster we can take that out and change it.

The teams are made already sir.

and marv, i bet its ok if we right our Team name and out Screenname on here, but im not sure. I guess with the task list there will be rules posted with them

Siegfried
07-10-2007, 06:55 PM
So is everyone okay with Project: Toaster being our team name? Or maybe just Team Toaster?

Well on another note, my participation will be limited, since I will be in Costa Rica for the majority of the hunt, and will have limited computer access.

Then print out a task list, and i bet there will be alot of people there.

Take pics! (with your name and team name) and then upload when you get back.

thats my plan

When does the first task list come out, don't want to miss it.

When does the first task list come out, don't want to miss it.
some time today after noon EST. I have to reorganize, reword, and give point values to 200 tasks then send it to vike or bamf for approval again. Bamf may have something to tide you over until the list is published.


OS has a mascot in works, NS needs to come up with one so that i can write it on the official page. Marv - writing it is fine, but printed is easier to see.

if you're willing to take the blame if people don't like it you are. I don't care what you guys are, but once the task list is posted you have to stay as it.
