<Black_Zarak> ok, i got some weird mantis/jellyfish/kinda ape stature thing going, i think i'm making progress...
<Drew_Linky> I'm assuming M3GA's not in there.
<@Fernin> you assume correctly[/SPOILER:5896f27def]

Alright, and now for the bracket. Finally. First and foremost, log:

[SPOILER:5896f27def]<Drew_Linky> Wait, I have an idea. Instead of using that generator for Lexi again, I can just !random it, right?
<Black_Zarak> dude, you have a chicken breakfast sandwich
<+Hacker> :O
<Drew_Linky> !random 1 4
<@Lexiabot9000> 1
<+Hacker> I have tortillas too
<cybersst> Cook the eggs and put them in the chicken for delicious irony
<Drew_Linky> ...
<+Ghandi> rofl
<Drew_Linky> !random 2 4
<@Lexiabot9000> 2
<Drew_Linky> ......
<Black_Zarak> or weird breakfast tortillas
<Drew_Linky> !random 3 4
<@Lexiabot9000> 4
<Drew_Linky> Oh, thank goodness.
<+Hacker> Drew but how're you going to take numbers out?
<+Hacker> lol cyber
<+Hacker> !random 1 4
<@Lexiabot9000> 3
<+Hacker> Okay 3
<+Ghandi> Make a Scottwich from it all
<+Hacker> !random 1 4
<@Lexiabot9000> 3
<+Hacker> oh no!
<Drew_Linky> And that's the one that M3GA will have to fight first.
[/SPOILER:5896f27def]

So unless I have some horrendous mess up in logic, the bracket is as follows:

Photobucket

The first battle begins a week from now! Use your time wisely.

Again, refer to this thread for rules and regs.

A note on the prize; letters are damned near impossible to knit into a scarf, so instead of that, I will have three different scarves for team members to decide which goes to who (note, they will all be black. The tassels are the main difference). And, as an apology for this set back, I'll also let team members request a hat in whatever color they want (assuming it's part of the visible spectrum. Infra-red, ultraviolet and gamma ray hats are not acceptable requests).

Confer with team mates and, once you have found a name all can agree on, post in this thread or PM me and I will change it for you.

Yes, to keep it short, this is the last time teams are being changed up. I'm not fucking around anymore.

YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE. I AM TALKING TO YOU.

Pleasantries aside: Good luck to you all! Questions can be PMed to me.

You should have at least made a video of you rolling the dice. I don't want to participate unless I can see evidence that this is truly random, so I would prefer the teams to be picked by Lexy.

Well, there's one. I don't have any cameras that can record videos, so there was a problem with that. I'll talk to Fernin, I am less and less at ease with the dice thing too.

Sounds like someone really dislikes docinsano.

Also, I thought I had until the end of today to sign up, dang it! Oh well.

No, I don't have a problem with whoever is on my team, I just thought that having the random selections properly documented was discussed and agreed upon.

I actually thought that as well, since in the past sign ups usually ended at midnight, and for some reason I thought sign ups were ending at midnight tonight and not yesterday. I misread it, I guess.

Well, if I have to revise teams using Lexi, I guess sign ups can technically end tonight. You want in, Klim? Because I would gladly give you my spot. I would not be helpful this year.

Syd, Lasher, gonna be honest with you two here.

I'm just going to be a drunken failure for all my contributions. Good luck.


<docinsano>i beat off using save states

<Tako> But, brontosaurs ate plants. It wouldn't be a threat to Jesus.

Why? Fuck you, that's why.

Fuck it, because people are trying to be dicks, sign ups end at midnight tonight. That is the last time I change anything for people on here.

You're all welcome, late-comers.

Why would you reward dickish behavior? You're drawing teams for a third time because people are being dicks?

And I already started making campaigning material for my favorite teams. This took me like an hour. Now what am I supposed to do with it?

Is that really the team I'm on? Sorry I have to ask, but I've been otherwise immersed all day.

Don't make me pull this thread over now, guys. Because I will.

Okay not really, but c'mon now--this is supposed to be a camaraderie/fun thing, not a SERIOUZ BIZNESS thing. Drew's bent over backwards to make this thing happen, reworked it multiple times, and it really, really is time to let it go and just have fun. If you don't like the makeup of a particular team, then campaign against 'em and get them eliminated.

FUN guys. I do this as stress relief and to hang out with y'all, and I'm sure that's why most of the rest of you do it to. Let's not create MORE stress for ourselves by turning our fun into an issue and something divisive. I've been there, done that with these battles. Have no desire to go through it again.

Just what I'd expect a member of the stacked mod team to say.

Just kidding, of course I'm not actually upset. I thought it was pretty clear I'm just busting balls, which a lot of people do come Forum Battle time. I'm more doing an impression of the multiple people who gave Drew shit the first time around (Jeebus, FNJ, Atma) for every decision he was making, and then didn't even wind up joining. I am surprised that when Syd stepped in he didn't take more control of this thing, though, to ensure it ran smoother, got higher participation, and was set up to last longer than two (lol) rounds.

That reminds me, congrats on reaching the Final Four Syd, Vald, SH, Lem, lasher, Sehk, jprime, doc, and Huff!

In all seriousness, Excel has a very legitimate gripe. He signed up in the official sign up thread and was left out of /both/ team drawings yesterday.

I appreciate the concern, but don't think I'm letting that stop me from competing.
