Best Class (fun thread)Follow

EDIT: WE HAVE A WINNER!

Generic forum game. Anyone here who is a forum junkie may have played this game before in other forms. It's just for fun and +1-age.

We start out with a list of all of the classes. Each class gets 5 points to start. You can do one of the five:

A: List one class to give +2 to.
B: List two classes and give +1 point to both.
C: List one class to give +1 to and one class to give -1 to.
D: List two classes to give -1 to.
E: List one class to give -2 to.

EDIT: With only three classes left, each class will lose 10% of their score, rounded up, at a time. No more upvotes.

Limit one post per person in a 4 hour period (if you post, you have to wait a minimum of 4 hours before posting again).

If a class reaches 0 points or negative points, at any time, they are removed from the list immediately. Any votes that would have put them back above 0 are disregarded. There is no maximum amount of points a class can get.

At midnight EDT, every night beginning tonight, the class with the lowest score will be removed from the list. If there is a tie, whatever class involved in the tie received the most recent -1 is out. If none of the classes involved in the tie have ever received a -1, then all classes involved in the tie get -2 to their score and stay.

EDIT: No more midnight eliminations either.

This process will repeat until only one class is left. That class "wins".

I'll update periodically to list who is out.


STILL IN

Tonight's end tally:

 
Conjurer          12 
Marauder          11 
Archer            9 
Thaumaturge       9 
Goldsmith         7 
Lancer            7 
Pugilist          7 
Weaver            7 
Gladiator         6 
Alchemist         5 
Armorer           5 
Blacksmith        5 
Botanist          5 
Carpenter         5 
Culinarian        5 
Fisher            5 
Leatherworker     5 
Miner             5 


We have a 9-way tie, and the only class in the 9 way tie to receive any negative votes was Botanist, so let's bit Botanist a fond farewell.

Also, to keep it interesting, I will periodically be adding arbitrary random rules.

First arbitrary random rule: The next five classes to receive negative votes will get an additional -1 (-1 becomes -2 and -2 becomes -3).

EDIT: And no, you can't cheat and give two -1s to the same class to get two -2s :P

What can I say I look forward to potions, elixers, etc.... being much more useful in XIV than they were in XI.
