July is the 20th Anniversary of the Jedi Council Forums (!!) and as part of the celebration, we're playing Forum Feud. It's like the American gameshow Family Feud but instead of pitting family against family, we're doing forum against forum. (If you don't know the gameshow you can find clips on youtube.) This was previously done for the 12 Anniversary and it was a lot of fun, so we're bringing it back. See the old Forum Feud forum HERE to see how it went. We are looking for Celebration forum teams of 5 to represent us. We can also have a few alternates if you want to possibly participate but not play a full part of the game. The team will need a Team Captain, a name, a slogan and team colors. Signups are until Friday so if you want to play, get in quick and represent us against the other forums! You can find the rules and FAQ for the game below. How Gameplay Will Work Every forum is allowed to submit up to two teams (with exception of the JCC and New Movies who can submit up to 4) of 5 people each, with one alternate per team. How those teams are chosen is up to the mods of that forum. See your forum to signup. If there is no signup, let us know and we'll make it happen. The teams will then choose a captain, team name, colors, and a team slogan. Teams will randomly be placed into a bracket, though no team will initially play against it’s own forum. Two teams will square off in a game. One of the hosts will PM a question to the team captain and ask a survey question. The player who responds with the highest ranking answer will win the face off. If both respond with the same level answer, the player who responds quickest from the time read to answer will win. The player who wins this face off question will then have their team continue to play the game. The team will post their responses in thread (no help from the audience, please!) and the host will let you know if that answer is on the board. The team will continue to give answers in order given by the hosts at the start of the game until they get all the answers or until they have three incorrect answers (strikes). If they clear the board, they win the round. If they get three strikes before they clear the board, the opposing team will get one chance to answer. If the opposing team gets an answer that is on the board, they win the round. If not, the original team wins the round. The winner of the round gets the cumulative total points assigned to each answer based on the number of respondents from the survey. The game continues in this fashion with the next person on the team list taking place of the Captain for the initial PM question. Their game will have point values doubled, and all games after that will have point values tripled. The first team to 300 points wins the game and advances in the tournament. They also get to play the bonus round. The Bonus Round In the bonus round, the winning team sends two players to play. They are PMed 5 questions from the host. They give their best answers and get the point values attached to the number of survey responses. The prize for the entire team is dictated by the value of their answers which consists of every team member wins their team colors, VIPship and a title. If they score a combined total of fewer than 50 points the prize is for 24 hours. Score of 51-99 points the prize is for 48 hours Score of 100-149 the prize is for 72 hours Score of 150 and 199 points the prize is for 96 hours 200 points of more the prize is for 1 week. In the case of both players sending the same answer, the player who sent the answer second will be asked to send another answer. General Rules Responses are expected in 24 hours for both the PM and in thread portions of the game. Users will be tagged (@ Username) when they are up, but you should still pay attention to the game as tags sometimes don’t work. Team captains should pay attention and remind their team when the deadline is approaching. Any team who does not have an answer in 24 hours will receive a strike. If you know you will not be able to answer within 24 hours in an upcoming part of the tournament, your captain may replace you with the alternate, or a mod of your forum may step in. This trade must be made prior to the question being sent out. The TOS applies to everything in this game, if you send an answer that breaks the TOS, it’s an automatic strike. FAQ What Happens to those who lose? Unfortunately this is a one loss tournament, so you will be out of the game. The mods of your forum will be forced to wear the colors of the winning team and put the winning teams slogan in their signature for the amount of time the winners get their colors. What happens to those who win the entire tournament? The team that wins the tournament will have ultimate bragging rights for themselves and their forum! Also every member of the team will be given VIPship, a title and colors for two weeks. I’m not in this game, can I participate in the game threads? Absolutely! Just don’t give out any answers and while a bit of back and forth is fine, try to keep it to a minimum. Also, please keep the taunting friendly. I didn't sign up in time, can I play? Sorry, once the teams are set, that's it. But a team may need an alternate, ask in your forums signup thread. Otherwise, just join in cheering on your favorite forum. Signups Must be complete by 11:59pm PST on the 13th of July To signup, copy and paste the most recent post and add your name to the list.
