    I am not ashamed to admit I had it playing on my TV each morning as I was getting ready for high school.

    I had to be at school by at least 6:45, so something entertaining like Sailor Moon was the perfect way to get me up and at 'em in the morning.

    Watching Ronin Warriors wasn't a waste of time, but it was sure a waste of time to analyze every second of every episode.

    A fun waste of time, sure.

    Sorry, connection cut out on me last night. Short version, then. Basically, agree with heels. For more or less the same reasons. Hal wins in a pretty epic fight (I give him maybe around 55 out of 100 or so). And while BB is a total beast, that prep is just too strong, with Sinister definitely tipping the scales.

    Mighty presumptuous of you to assume I'll pass up a chance to vote for Superman.

    Am I serious? Never know.

    Why? If the #5 was called before 1 this wouldn't have happened.

    We would instead had these trumps fighting, BBfacing a forfeit and my #1 position forfeiting to your Kang/Loki trump.

    This isn't a double forfeit situation.

    If anything this should be like what happened to Minch and I with neither of us getting credit for a win.

    The rules thus far on trumping have been: two trumps meet, winner takes all; two forfeits meet, no one gets anything.However, that two wins thing was for if the same two trumps landed on the same two numbers. In this instance we're talking about a different trump's forfeit, so it's trickier. However, this means that Mikaboshi escapes punishment--and any chance of Mad Men pushing it to teams. Given that, in this case, both of Mad Men's trumps won, I am inclined to give them the first rule of trump busted equals two wins, and since it's a double forfeit, Mikaboshi still gets nothing.

    Judges? GMs?

    This is why, I think, this sort of thing has been avoided in the past.

    Maybe we create a tie-breaker system.
    When two forfeits meet:
    First tie breaker--if the trumps met, the winner of the fight is the winner
    Second tie breaker--if the trumps did not meet, whichever trump was more successful in their previous fight
    Third tie breaker--if the trumps were equally successful in their previous fights, then no win is awarded to either gm

    EDIT: and it wasn't called first because I am not manipulating the numbers in any way this time from their randomly sequenced string. This behavior was protested, so we gave it up and let the chaos ensue.

    I don't see why I should get penalized when this could have been avoided by pulling #s in a different order.

    This exact situation happened with Minch and I, the decision there was that neither of us got credit for a win or loss. There is already precident in this draft for the exact same situation


    Minch wasn't given a loss in that situation.

    I don't understand why "draw" is a curse word.

    Agreed. All it does is eliminate the possibility of a tied up round and the need for teams. No big deal at all unless the GM was pushing for teams, and if that is the case it is a horrible stategy anyway.

    If I get any vote at all it would be to start calling these draws.

    What's the difference between a draw and no wins? None.

    And I wasn't really around for this last time.But this isn't the exact situation, either. Last time, the other side of the trumps both had a win. So, a draw in that case suits me fine--it's what I proposed in the tie-breaker thing.

    This wouldn't be happening if you were all better at GMing and didn't trump ever.

    Just saying every forfeit v forfeit should be a draw. No one's there.

    True EF, but that is only one of your three criteria for tie breakers.

    The other two give someone a loss.

    My understanding of this double forfeit thing was that you didn't want to ask gms to resubmit #s, not that you weren't going to do what we have done for 9 prior drafts and call them in a way that avoids forfeit/forfeit rounds.

    Why create all these rules when we can just say that allforfeit/forfeits are draws and leave it at that?
