MBDM 2012 - The Brackets

Postby StalinSays » Sat Feb 04, 2012 4:37 am

Ok, so I think I have something that will add some structure to the chaos of 45 beasts in 9 heats.


3 more heats. 15 more beasts. We then have a bracket. We follow a tournament format, in the style of Street Fighter 2: Championship Edition, or uh, real sports. Things get a bit easier to understand for outsiders, they see what a vote means, not an endless parade of beasts.

And we slow things, preventing burn out. Each light green dot represents a week of voting time. So 3 more weeks of heats, with a reduced 5 beasts a week set up. 3 weeks of survivor fights. 2 weeks of hybrid matches. And a week long championship.

You think we can dream up 15 more beasts? I'm good for at least 5 of those, if y'all are game. I will unlock the suggestion topic, we take a week after the ursine/scaled/oddball.

I'm looking for a 'yay we can do this' or a 'nay this is insane' level of feedback. And for you yays, a pledge to make with the beasties in the suggestions section. Also, it'd be nice to know if brackets make this all easier to contemplate.

And this has no bearing on MBDM:2013, if we ever do it. So don't think of it in terms of 'oh god what will be left voles vs sea cucumbers?' - as is the case with the year 2012, you never know, this could be the last hurrah. Hedonism! Beastly hedonism!

Oh and Necro/Red/Snaketopus haven't survived yet, I just worked them in to the brackets to show how it all fits. Keep voting in heats 7 8 9 as if this jpg never existed.

It's a sad day for the DC listeners when we can't put together 15 awesome yet random beasts at the drop of a hat.

You want the suggestions here Bo, or the original thread?

Cool! Well, that's two yays to start. Anyone else down with the clown?

Keep them upstairs for now. Assuming there isn't a sudden surge of naysayers, I'll open the original suggestions thread back up Wednesday, after heats 7 8 9 wrap up. At that point fire away.
