The 1st Main Match has finally ended. I will now separate you into the winners and the losers.


The winners are:

Thanasis - HYENA
Dana - DEER
Henry - MALLARD
Blake - RABBIT
Metsrus - TURTLE
Kathy - CHAMELEON


The losers are:

Sam - LION
Tomcat - CROC
Jess - EAGLE
Adam - MOUSE
Kevin - EGYPTIAN PLOVER
Pete - SNAKE
Nat - CROW


The winners each will get 1 token of life and 1 garnet each.

Winner, you are now to discuss to choose which one among the 7 losers are you sending to the Death Match. You will be allowed to access to a room. It has to be a unanimous vote and once confirmed, I will announce here who is the vote. In order not to stretch it too long, the deadline will be until 9 AM EST. If whoever doesn't post by then, I will go with the vote that the members who has posted then.

Once I posted the Death Match player, that player needs to choose another person among the losers that they want to face off in the Death Match.

the results will be flipped. the losers will be the winners and the winners will be the losers and the new "winners" will then decide. if it happens again, majority vote will be taken from the original winners and those who propose get an extra garnet each while those who oppose get one taken away.

i might extend the deadline if i don't get at least 4 winners to login here up to 9 am est.

I will also reveal the number of garnets for each person before the first death match candidate chose their opponent.

I am considering to make it a majority vote instead of a unanimous vote because everyone is online at diff times so it's hard to come up with a confirmed name especially since the 12 hours is night for most of you.

So, I just want some suggestions whether in the event of more than 1 winners, should we make it unanimous or a majority? it cannot be a tie vote though definitely.

I like the idea of unanimous. Really adds more strategy.

Here's a thought. Group A can't make a decision because "Bob" won't vote with everyone else. So you flip it and group B becomes the winners and gets to try to come to unanimous decision. Group B can't make a decision because "Leroy" won't vote with them. Now it flips back to group A but Bob is now part of group B. Now Group A will unanimously vote for their original pick or they could decide to vote for Bob.

Makes it so people are less likely to dissent because they'll become a potential target of the rest of their group.

No , I think if the vote is flipped, and the losers (who would then become winners) can't reach a majority either, then it goes back to the original "majority" from the original winners' group

Ithanka for the suggestion. For unanimous, i might need to give extra time though cos everyone is on at diff times. Most matches will only have 1 winner though. This is one of the few where there's a few winners needing to choose a death match candidate.

Bandage-Man is part of The Genius. He's like the host, in a sense. But he only shows up on the screen, talking to the viewers.

Anyway, I have decided to stick with my original decision. It has to be unanimous for the winners to choose a death match candidate.

therefore, the winners and losers are now flipped. the new winners will now have until 6 pm est to decide before it's flipped one more time.

I will say its dumb that the vote got flipped solely based on the fact that Mets was the last person online and said no. I'm sorry that we all work and aren't able to be online at the same time. But ill remember next vote to come online 5 minutes before the deadline and say no I don't agree just to screw over the winners. Because that's apparently fair.


BTW Jessica unless your side agreed on mets don't agree. Make it a split vote. We had agreed on someone and he said no made it split because he wanted you voted in

I will say it is an odd rule, but it was posted as such. Maybe next time there needs to be more time for the group to decide on a secondary player. But it also puts a huge target on Mets (or whoever might not agree with the vote). If our group does vote on someone, he puts himself at risk of being challenged to the death match.

But I definitely understand being upset about what played out.

Im not upset that he didnt agree with us, we are supposed to come to a unanimous decision. Im upset that his disagreement was not discussed as only one other person saw his post before the decision was made to flip the tables.

Ok I see what you're saying. Maybe if this happens in the future, Mas could add more time if someone posts a dissenting opinion to give everyone a chance to see it.

We meaning you, Than, and Kathy at best.  That's just half of the group and barely unanimous.  I still stand by my offer though to go to the death match though.

Hmm so I just checked the room and have some points to make. I was expecting something else from reading this section first.

-only 3 people officially voted, so I don't get the metsrus drama

I guess thats just one point lol. But basically I posted I'll vote anyone IDC and left. This was before a name was brought up. Then 1 person named someone, a second person said they were ok voting them and then mets said no. Person 2 said they were ok voting someone else and then that was the end.

How did that create so much drama? What this shows me though is that this game will last forever with this unanimous concept and it will not be active if it votes and things are on weekends.

Amen!!!

Also for mas, please wait for someone to make a vote official. To post "I'll vote anyone idc" could be a strategy but does not mean you will literally vote anyone.
