Game of Thrones Contest Begins!

Posted 2018/04/22 1:16 PM by Salvageyard

Spawned from the fields of giants and dwarves, and the blistering flames of mechanized war, comes a new Botton Banner challenge! In this epic battle for a Botton Banner you will march divisions of armies across the lands to lay waste to your opposing foe, while trying to out live your adversaries behind a fragile castle of stone! Each manager entering will create three new fighters within the welterweight division and put them on manual schedule until further notice. One fighter will represent your King, while the other two will represent your two division of armies that you will use to occupy other contender's lands to pummel at a castle until it is destroyed and the king harboring within is eliminated from the game along with his invading armies.

For further details, see Salvageyard's Lot in the Blog section.

Announce your entry here and designate which fighter will be your king and which two fighters will be your armies. Keep these armies and king new and fresh until the contest begins, this will be announced when there are a sufficient amount of entries.

Ok, I think we're just waiting for Bale to throw in at this point, he's getting over some pneumonia but should be in this week. I thought we would go ahead and put our kings and armies on auto schedule before scheduling May 5th so the war for Game of Thrones will start the following Thursday night, May 10th. We want to wait to auto schedule our contest fighters after Thursday night's fight results, May 3rd and before scheduling of welters Saturday night, May 5th.

Remember that you must announce in this thread which lands you want your armies to move to before the fight results of welterweights on Thursday, waiting to the last minute is allowed, but any announcements after will move the armies to those lands the following week's fights, unless announced again otherwise. The armies will remain in those lands until announced to be moved elsewhere.

Thank you all for participating! I hope this will be as good as the list of managers we have involved in this one! Let the Game of Thrones begin!!!

I, The Dothraki King of Dothrak of Essos, proclaim... that if Westeros and Essos do not want to be trampled and enslaved by The Great Bear of King's Landing, that we must as a tribe, as a land, as free people, take all our armies to the very gates of the growling beast... to lay waste to what sure will be a massing, growing army of unrelenting destruction of all our hopes to gain the seat of the iron throne! Join me, fight by my side in this firsts of battles... or sure as the winter will come, The Great Bear will boil our children and devour the flesh from their bones! The Dothraki Horde will march to the very heart of the den of the great beast... WE MARCH TO KING'S LANDING!!!

I moved all managers in the tourney to the US South
so scheduling will be fair. The scheduler will
schedule in own region first so should be more
H2H battles between competitors.

Sitting here on the eve of battle the great bear awakens from slumber. Armies are gathering outside the gates of King’s Landing. I say lay down you arms against the one true king Aerys Targaryen and join me in my quest for the throne. I offer all that join me full command of my mighty armies in your attacks. Whoever your armies attack mine will join in the attack. If multiple king’s pledge allegiance then the command will alternate in the order you join. Like fingers in a hand we will join together and form an iron fist. We will not attack each other until we vanquish our enemies.

What had transpired in the Support forum left me very gloom and I was considering cancelling this contest. My responsibility as host of the Botton Banners is to insure, as much as possible, the fairness and integrity of the competition. While I have fun running these contests, they are a lot of work... but I still enjoy doing it... but the circumstances left from the Support thread was a big kick in the pants for me. While I feel frustrated and saddened, I will continue to uphold my obligation to continue the contest if those who are still participating wish to do so. Zwip had cancelled his contest fights, leaving KanLaw's Bridgekeeper the only fighter this week, so far, without a scheduled fight. If he does not pull a bot or another fighter by Thursday, we will consider his fight as won by forfeit with a Decision win. I'm sorry to the players and to the commission that this happened. I hope we can continue this contest, and turn a bad situation into a enjoyable ending.

In lieu of the current glitch, we will keep our fighters on manual if the glitch gets fixed early this week for possible scheduling until I can get everyone back on the same page.

We'll begin putting our contest fighters back on Auto (weekly) after Thursday night fights run (21st) and before scheduling of welterweights Saturday night (23rd). This week will be considered a bye week for the contest.

I misunderstood the information and put my fighters on auto. one of them has a fight but I assume we can just not count it.

P.S. The commentary is great.

I've noticed that I have an error in week 15 with my score, it reads 3 points it should be 2.25... this was points taken from Work during that week, while this adds back to his score, it still does not pull him out of the grip of the whitewalker death... I will correct it in the next update.
