Describe CB in a short paragraph, Win a prize! (in Contests)
Yeah, pretty much the whole idea of the contest.
Based on this thread
. The contest winner (winners for good submissions) will get featured on multiple social networking sites. So make it good/funny/witty/descriptive/brief/concise. We are gunna use this to make CB popular, so make it good.
I think the judges of this should either be Jonathan only, or all the QB's or the admins, or whatever, but I don't want to be the only one judging this one, thats for sure!
Since I want this to happen, I'm going to throw some money into it: 500k is the prize so far. I would appreciate it if certain rich people donated some of their funds to the contest winner as well. :)
Do I get multiple swings at it?, if not that is cool, but if so, here is salvo #1. I am a windbag and have no clue if this is too long, but I could easily shorten it.
Carnage Blender is an unique multi-user online role playing game. What it lacks in graphical flash is more than made up for by the robust and every changing environment and community. What makes it unique? How about scheduled changes that have drastic effect on game play, many times a year. How about bonuses to new players to level the playing field, so even the newest player has a fighting chance at the top spot. How about an ultimate rock, paper, scissors approach meaning there is multiple paths to the top 10 and multiple strategies to get you there. If you are tired of games that are static and unchanging, tired of games that are constantly resetting, tired of games that give entrenched players a massive advantage over new players, tired of easy path strategies and no-brainer strategic decisions, Carnage Blender is the game for you. On top of all of that you get an active and vocal community, willing to help you, but not waiting to baby you. You get diverse functionality that allows to fight, forge, or even choose commerce as you method of play. If you plan to give Carnage Blender 10 minutes or less, do not bother, but if you will give Carnage Blender a chance, and spend some time exploring it, you will find why it is addicting to a married person with three kids as it is to the kids themselves.
Sorry there are some obvious typos in there, that still get passed the spell check. I forgot a "you" towards the end, and used "every" instead of "ever", etc.
Thanks sefton, but that is much too long. Look at the summary
listed on one of these articles, and you'll get an idea how long it should be.

But I will work on another tact with less words and more concepts, assuming multiple attempts are OK :)
I personally think you have to "deal" with the non graphic objections up front. I also feel getting someone to try it for 10 minutes and then quit is worse than not getting here at all, so I feel strongly those two concepts should be represented.

Carnage Blender is a free online chat-based strategy RPG based on medieval fighting characters, called minions, almost like chess. This game is kid-friendly, with PG rules being enforced at all times in both chat and forums, but also is more than capable of holding the interest of adults. It has an active, friendly, trusting, and strong community that is willing to give advice and help to any new player. Not only this, but it doesn't require a large amount of time - a player can easily compete by getting on once every three hours for a short period of time. No more kids staying in front of the computer for hours upon end! The community is friendly, the gameplay encourages thought, and there's even a bonus to help any new players catch up to the current veterans! This game is highly recommended for anyone and everyone.
Not only that, but word-famous cyber-celebrity OddBird plays this game. Allow your children to meet and speak with their role model via the CB chat, without the lines or crowds!

Come test us out, and you'll see what all the hype is about.

And this is all done in the name of FUN.Protect your selves people keep a wary eye out on your families they will be the better for it!

Carnage Blender is the kind of site where you can battle against other members and strengthen your character and minions on one hand, have fun shopping for equipment on the other, and have odd random conversations about the zombies that live in your basement on that weird third hand your brother super-glued to the back of your head.

Carnage Blender is a free to play text based, head to head combat stategy game. there is an limited turns per hour/day with a accumulated turns cap. You can create multiple Characters (they are really more like teams). When your character The skills/spells cost experiance (gained by defeating opponents) and how you choose the skills/spells is your strategy. Buying items (swords, axes, maces, shields, armors, bows, crossbows, slings, ammunition) both allows certain combat advantages, renting for CB$(a fast way to gain CB$), and resale for profit (after improvements (either automaticly by the blacksmith or manually at the forge) ) resulting in an economic stategy (though you gain more by combat). There are clans that band character teams together for larger combat/economic rewards. If you Pay real monnies you gain advantages over the nonpaying masses (vorpal blade, runes, ect...) and your logon name will never be deleted.
Not to be a jerk or anything, but you guys are submitting descriptions that are much too long. Emphasis on "Short" paragraphs in this contest people. Funny doesn't hurt either. :)

Create your own unique character, utilizing the biggest and baddest of the weapons you can trade with other players or buy in the shop.

After slaughtering your daily toll, you can relax with our free chat. it's all real time, and reaches all around the world. There are people here you will never forget, no matter how many times you murder their character, you'll both come out laughing. As your character grows towards the top, you will grow closer to the people you come to respect and look up to.
