I am looking to make sure you guys are keeping the time requirements. I'll give a 5-10 minute leniency, but some people seem to be unaware that the cooldown went back up to 4 hours, so I'm reminding you again since more than one person has posted after 3 hours (KingKon), so that vote doesn't count. Here are current totals:
Archer 57
Gladiator 52
Marauder 49
Pugilist 38
Armorer 27
Lancer 25
Weaver 16

If Mik doesn't appear in the next couple of hours, I might decide to come up with an arbitrary rule to keep things going. I'm trying to avoid taking this over from him completely though, seeing as though it was his idea. But I also want everyone to keep having fun with this, so if I have to be the one to keep it alive I will.


I appreciate that; really, I do.

Me and one other guy manage two sites between the two of us. Yesterday, he put in his two week notice because he got a new job, and rather than hire someone to replace him before he left, upper management decided to just tell him around 3 to turn in his keys and badge on the way out. So now I have suddenly gotten a giant workload thrust upon me and have been unable to get on here at all.

For future reference, if you want to keep updating the point totals, I'll trust you to do so.

And on that note, since I have too much work already, here's our newest arbitrary rule:

Suggest a rule to me! I'll decide on a new one which will take effect after tonight's midnight elimination unless the rule stipulates that it has a certain timeframe or something.

If I pick your rule, you get a bonus vote with the values tripled.

Updating next...

wEAVER -2.
rule suggestion. if three people in the course of an hour make the exact same vote. the points are doubled.. vote has to be ecactly the same aka "pug -2" there would have to be 3 pug -2 votes in a hour for double points so a vote of pug -1 gld +1 wouldnt count

also its only the first 3 votes per 4 hour vote quota// aka if 3 people vote pug -2 and 3 vote gld +2 but the 3rd pug-2 came before the 3rd gld +2 only the pug -2 is doubled resulting in pug - 12 total from all three being doubled.. also if the 3rd vote for pug-2 is even 1 minit after a hour passes then that only counts as 1 vote for pug-2 all 3 votes must be within a hour of the first vote

also works for votes like pug -1 gld +1 if 3 ppl make the exact same vote doesnt matter what order they do it in then pug gets -6 and gld gets +6

and to avoid abuse of this as i said a 4 hour cooldown on this. 4 hours after the last doubled points it can be done again but no sooner

As long as I'm keeping up with tallies, I'll refrain from voting so there's no concern of bias. I will go ahead and suggest the arbitrary rule I had planned anyway: Rounding time! Being OCD, I like numbers to be nice and even, so once midnight hits, all point totals will be rounded to the nearest 10. If the ones digit is 1-4, points will get subtracted until it is 0. If the ones digit is 5-9, points will get added until it is 0. I think this will throw in a little strategy without adding or taking away too much from a class.

I'm not sure if anything similar to these rules have already taken place as I have missed some days but:

Rule Suggestion: At end of day tally, all totals that are an odd number get doubled. All totals that are an even number get halved

Rule Suggestion: At end of day tally the class with the highest vote will get eliminated.

Rule Suggestion: After elimination the current scores of each class will be reshuffled to another class either randomly or by swaping, giving the lowest scoring class the score of the highest, the 2nd lowest class the score of the 2nd highest etc.

A slight tweak on this might be better tolerated: shift all the classes down one total, bringing the last place class to the lead. For example, using the most recent tally:

Archer 58
Gladiator 53
Marauder 51
Pugilist 38
Armorer 27
Lancer 23
Weaver 18

Totals stay where they are, but the classes shift down (with last going up), making the new tally this:

Weaver 58
Archer 53
Gladiator 51
Marauder 38
Pugilist 27
Armorer 23
Lancer 18

I disagree immensely with this...

I only used those totals to illustrate what would happen. The actual swap would not take place until midnight tonight, so totals could be very different. Lancer could be last and go to the top, or be higher up and not be affected as much. And it would happen after the elimination, so that could mean weaver gets taken out and lancer is in last place before the swap anyway.

Gladiator +2

Rule suggestion: All for one and One for all

Direct votes (+2,-2) get applied to every class except the class selected (i.e. PUG +2 gives +2 to everyone but PUG)

Split votes (-1/-1, +1/-1, +1/+1) gives +1/-1 to each selected class for every other class not mentioned in the post (i.e. Weaver +1, Marauder -1, gives Weaver +5 and Marauder -5)

These effects get reversed if the seconds of your post time are prime (02, 03, 05, 07, 11, 13, 17, 19, 23, 29, 31, 37, 41, 43, 47, 53 and 59, 28.3% chance), reversed means that +2 becomes -2, -2 becomes +2, +1 becomes -1 and -1 becomes +1.

The winner is:

Rule Suggestion: At end of day tally the class with the highest vote will get eliminated.


Magnesium02's next vote is TRIPLED as a reward.

Furthermore, until the next midnight elimination, everyone gets THREE votes instead of two! You can divide them among three classes, two classes, or give them all to one, in any combination of positive and negative votes.

If a class gets reduced to zero, it is still eliminated, but our next midnight elimination will see the class with the MOST votes leaving us. Subsequent eliminations will return to normal (lowest leaves).

Happy voting!
