GARGANTUA'S $200 TOURNAMENT OF EXTRA DEATH AND PAIN (TripleA Only) 2xELIMINATION


  • So garg can we have a bid system instead of just getting axis or allies. I also think axis are overpowered, and they are much easier to play. Up to you. Your tournament.


  • @theROCmonster:

    Gargantua already pronounced on the bid.

    “2. ALL GAMES will be TripleA version 1.5.2.1 PBF - or Live Game (But you must atleast upload a save file to a thread)
          - All Games will be TEAM vs TEAM  That’s either 2 OR 3 players per team, no larger.
          - All Games will be 1940 GLOBAL ALPHA 3.9+ NO BID.  Side will be determined by a die roll.
          - TECH IS OPTIONAL, both sides must agree, (Though I’m not 100% certain it is working yet)”

    Besides, all the Global games I’ve watched and studied have been based on a no-bid scenario.  If other players have similarly prepared, instituting a bid at this late stage (tournament kicks off tomorrow) is rather short notice.


  • @theROCmonster:

    I happen to agree that a bid would be a good idea.  Nevertheless, the lateness issue is not a small one.

    I notice you are Allies.  Could it be that made no mention of bid, hoping you would be Axis?  Then when you noticed you were Allies, you suddenly took exception?

    You may have noticed I am Axis.  Could it be that I’m saying bids are not right at this late stage because I am Axis?

    Could it be that I like asking questions when I should actually be making statements?
    Could this be a growing trend of c***py American journalism?
    Could I be hijacking this thread in a small way to gratuitously draw attention to this matter?

    FIND OUT these and SO MANY OTHER EXCITING QUESTIONS IN . . .

    “The Smoking Bunny” - in stores SOON!

    (j/k I don’t have a book coming.  Or do I?)


  • No, not at all. Though it might seem that way, I have been saying ever since the beggining that axis were OP.

    Is there ANYBODY out there who needs a teammate or wants to play? Otherwise it’ll be me versus two others. And I don’t even know how strategy in this game goes.

    Or, Garg, you can just pull me out of this tournament. I’ll come play another year. I’m not keen on a 2-on-1 situation. I don’t even know what the heck the objectives are. I mean, what is the purpose of a TAC fighter? Does it drop TICs?

    Yeah, just pull my name from the tourney. I’ll join again next year.


  • So what does that mean for me Garg?

    Stickied for reference. I have a feeling this thread will be buried soon otherwise.

    Thanks G.


  • So never did figure out the 3rd player for Long Dark Tea Time of the Soul. That ‘FIGURING IT OUT’ slot can be taken off the roster. Or if someone didn’t get placed on a team, we can take on another, if need be.


  • Greetings all,

    I’m having some trouble getting the dice server to mail to multiple email addresses…

    Anyone else having the same problem?

    Please advise,

    MIR


  • All email adresses need to be registred with the dice server. If this is your problem you will get an error message when you try to roll dice and in that error message is a link to where you register email adresses for the dice server.

    if you put your email into the “to:” space and everyone else into the “cc:” space it’ll work but you MUST put a space in between to addresses and not commas or Quote marks like for CC’ing on PM’s here click the help button on the add email page if this is confusing.

    Hi everyone,

    Since the name of our team is just the long version of one of our team member’s handle, I’m officially changing our team name from On Her Majesty’s Secret Service to The Dominators.

    The name will likely end up being ironic, but what the hey!

  • Customizer

    I’m back.

    Now how do I figure out who I play?

  • Liaison TripleA '11 '10

    Game 5 
    16. Meglomaniacs (jim010 + Stirling) 
    24. Wrath of the law (Wrath + Bernad_law)

    RED Drew the axis by coin flip.  (Like you and I spoke about, I’m not opposed to bidding in future rounds).

    Than means you are the allies to start Jim.

    I haven’t seen wrath or Bernad_law around, so you’ll probably have to PM them to remind them to start!

  • Liaison TripleA '11 '10

    PG 22 of this thread it where it shows all the who’s playing who, and random dice rolls etc.

  • Customizer

    Game 5 
    16. Meglomaniacs (jim010 + Stirling) 
    24. Wrath of the law (Wrath + Bernad_law)

    Bernad_law doesn’t exist, and there is only a Wrath3.

    It seems my opponents don’t exist.

    Wrath3

    I’ll send him a PM.


  • So I got a teammate and I got him on to tripple A. My nick there is wrath and his nick is royal red….

  • Liaison TripleA '11 '10

    We play by forum Wrath.

    Jim010 is your opponent.

    Hey Garg, what’s the final count on participants in this fine tourney? Officially the biggest ever TripleA event?

  • Liaison TripleA '11 '10

    I’ll do an official count later today, but it’s over 70 Participants (79 is my guess).

    YES, that makes it the largest tournament EVER held at aa.org 🙂  By a wide margin too…

  • Customizer

    In the interest of raising my post count, and stating the (possibly) obvious. My team has 3 players so if we win my cut is $66.66 give or take 2/3 of a cent. (and since Canada is officially eliminating the penny it’s acctually $66.65) I officially declare that my cut, should I, along with my teammates, win this wicked awesome tournament, will be split down the middle and donated to both TripleA and AA.org. That’s $33.33 each for those keeping track.
    Why would I throw this away you ask?
    I’ll tell you.
    Without both of these entities I would never be the A&A addicted degenerate I am today, and instead of staying home and playing this game, painting these pieces, recording and editing this podcast, (visit http://dicetruction.blogspot.ca/ for more info on that) I’d be visiting the local strip club, the local opium den, and/or the local fight club.
    Thank F-ing G (or the G of your choice) for this awesomeness.
    Though I realize that not everyone can afford such frivolousness in these trying times I will urge you anyway to pledge to do as I have just done. Give it back to the ones that make this all possible!

    Thanks also to Gargantua for getting this all together and putting up the Simoleons for it all. If enough people get on  board or we who do just gang up to crush the ones who don’t, it’ll mean $100 for AAA and A&A.org. (give or take 1/3 of a cent)

  • Liaison TripleA '11 '10

    Well everybodies welcome.  I love this game and this place as much as the best of you.

    The tourney has drawn quite a few new players to TripleA, and even aa.org,  and in that process, already drummed up it’s value in donations to TripleA programming (Something Verqyn’s been busting his but on, whilst we’re gaming!)

    I’m impressed with the sucess we’ve already had,  and the tournament has only begun!

    That said, I’m likely facing a ban shortly, for trying to resolve some other community issues on the site.  So If I’m away,  Death’s Head 420, is the official alternate administrator of the tournament!
