Why you deserve $21.5m (in Contests)


th00p September 1 2007 8:03 PM EDT

Or who else deserves it?

48DangerZone September 1 2007 8:05 PM EDT

Noone does except you. Because your my everything <3 ^_^

And you better not be giving away 21.5m..

Tyriel [123456789] September 1 2007 8:12 PM EDT

Jon deserves 21.5m and much, much more. Unfortunately, he can probably create his own money, so it's best to give it to somebody who can't. :)

Aside from Jon, I'd have to say that SNK4R deserves 21.5m, for spending his time, effort, and money on things that benefit everybody, even if it means he can't be competitive in this game. :)

Gunny Pew Pew [Red Permanent Assurance] September 1 2007 8:18 PM EDT

I deserve 21.5mil so may buy a new minion(DM possibly) and name thee th00p.

[MM] Theatre Of Tragedy September 1 2007 8:19 PM EDT

I'm not going to name any names.. but whoever gets that money deserves it. Maybe someone who has helped this game so much. I'm still kinda new so I can't really say.

Spawn September 1 2007 8:23 PM EDT

i do! :)
im 20+mil in debt...
i would give some back to the community...
Donate to Torney Prizes and make more Contests without having to have a big Entry Fee (contests are fun) :) i have loads of contest ideas ;) just no money for prizes while i am in debt at the moment :( other people may need it more than me...but if your giving it away, im game ;)

QBPixel Sage September 1 2007 8:26 PM EDT

I think the person who can finish the theme engine deserves it ;)

th00p September 1 2007 8:37 PM EDT

Why you (or someone else) deserves *MY* $21.5m

Flamey September 1 2007 8:46 PM EDT

Too bad that certain someone creating the theme engine already got 20 mil, or was it 40?

noneedforthese September 1 2007 8:54 PM EDT

Someone who would pay you USD for that 21.5 mil. It's a nice gesture but seriously you should get your money's worth out of it...

AdminNightStrike September 1 2007 9:04 PM EDT

Pixel!

If you need help with the engine, I'm more than happy to help with it.

lostling September 1 2007 9:09 PM EDT

i think the tournyprizes deserves it :) ... will help everyone too

[YG]Wildthing September 1 2007 9:15 PM EDT

I am entering myself into this contest because I recently got started back into fighting again after a short leave due to work. I have a bigger character now but I do not have the networth to fight decently well with him. I would put the money into something/s that if th00p came back, he could use to get started up again.

QBOddBird September 1 2007 9:28 PM EDT

It is your money, so as far as deserving it goes, nobody deserves your possessions...however, if you are giving your money away:

1) I'm up for taking it. I'll be straight with you, I'd just boost my gears with it and hold a fun contest or two.

2) Tourneyprizes wouldn't reject it. That'd be a great use for it, to fund our future tournaments and for it to go back out into the community.

3) I still think you should probably sell it for USD and save your money for college. Just 'cuz this is the 3rd option doesn't mean it is the lowest on my list; in fact, it is the opposite. This is the most highly recommended from me.

Whatever you do, I hope you don't entirely quit on us. I'd still like to see you coming back to Chat with us from time to time. =) But whatever you do is your decision, th00permann!

DrAcO5676 [The Knighthood III] September 1 2007 9:35 PM EDT

Th00pie... I recommend giving one or two mil away if thats your plan then sell the rest for a little in pocket cash. Don't fool yourself you know it would help in some way. Now the account that deserves the cash would prolly be tourney prizes due to its enormous impact on the community.

Ragatag September 1 2007 9:37 PM EDT

yes please

Ragatag September 1 2007 9:38 PM EDT

because i have 28, very fluffy bunnies to feed

fatty the loner September 1 2007 9:51 PM EDT

i deserves it b-c of three reasons
1. i'm broke
2. im fat (it will help me on a diet)
3. i'm evil

Mikel September 1 2007 10:18 PM EDT

Well.....

1st: I think Ranger deserves it for all that he does that doesn't get recognized by the community.

2nd: I think I deserve it for making Jon change up his game quite drastically during my NUB time (for those that were here, VPR was broke, made the Max Tattoo Limit, changed the whole NUB bonus system and besides, I'm just a nice guy

Mem September 1 2007 11:09 PM EDT

You simply must bequeath your Carnage Blender wampum unto me, for I shall use it in the never-ending endeavor to improve general Carnage Blender diction for all! (Read: I will bring back the $20 Word Awards)

Plus, I keep getting screwed by the server. My NCB hurts. Give it the medicine it sorely needs.

Soxjr September 1 2007 11:11 PM EDT

I would like it but I don't think I actually deserve it. I would use it to upgrade gear and maybe buy a minion. I personally can't see me saving enought o buy one since they currently cost over 13 mil per.

On a side note. Great thread to see what people think and how they react to the thought of getting 21.5 mil. Even if it isn't a guarantee that you are even giving it away. :)

karlos666uk September 1 2007 11:21 PM EDT

i think ranger also deserve it
1.for he helps out everyone
2.he hit 3mil mpr this week hoot hoot or him


what would i do with ?
buy my own tank stuff and elb for my minion instead of spending all my money every week on rentals

Kong Ming September 1 2007 11:37 PM EDT

I don't deserve the money but I do need the money ;)

cookie dough September 1 2007 11:58 PM EDT

I have a debt of 950k and a weapon to upgrade. you can imagine how hard it is to make cash with a 8k NCB

cookie dough September 1 2007 11:59 PM EDT

*8k mpr

cookie dough September 2 2007 12:00 AM EDT

mabe a 1 mill donation? =)

QBBast [Hidden Agenda] September 2 2007 12:03 AM EDT


TP, so Beee can use his ill-gotten gains for fun contests instead of tournaments, which are just more BA usage.

Synge [Memento Mori] September 2 2007 12:05 AM EDT

I believe that these have been suggested previously, but I think that if you feel like giving the money away, you deserve the US$ for the money, or that Tourney Prizes needs the money.

QBBarzooMonkey September 2 2007 12:56 AM EDT

I believe that th00p!!! deserves 21.5 million because he could use it to come back more often because I miss typing th00p!!! as often as I used to.

Or if th00p were looking for a buyer in USD, I would gladly negotiate with th00p.

I certainly don't deserve, nor really want 21.5 million in a gift capacity, but if I were made, say, "trustee" of the aforementioned funds, I would certainly distribute them more diversely than just to 1 individual, but rather to many winners, via a return to a quantity and quality of contests previously enjoyed by CB as sponsored by myself.

In conclusion, I don't know of anyone who actually "deserves" 21.5 million. I can tell you who else definitely doesn't "deserve" a gift of 21.5 million, but that would be construed as a personal attack :P

phrog September 2 2007 12:57 AM EDT

Because today I took my daughters to the beach and built them a sand castle with a lake the size of a hot tub in it--no exaggeration, my wife lost track of me for a bit because I was on my knees digging it out. Because tomorrow I'll go back to my fire station and work (btw, with one of the worst sun burns I've ever had, because today I took my daughters to the beach).

AdminQBVerifex [Serenity In Chaos] September 2 2007 2:34 AM EDT

I think I deserve it, as I spend way too much time writing that script for this game. Easily worth that much money in "contractor hours". Other then that script though, I do like to start spirited discussions regarding why clan points are broken and that they should be fixed.

Besides that, some jerkwad vandalized my car last night and scraped keys on it. My car looks so crappy, I have no idea why someone would further hurt it. Now I gotta go have it fixed and it will probably cost a lot of money. :(

QBJohnnywas September 2 2007 4:17 AM EDT

I was going to type some typical nice JW style comments, but I'm too grouchy this morning.

Give it to me. You know I'll probably give it away anyway to deserving people.

Otherwise chuck it at Barzoo and Godwolf and G Beee. They'll make sure it finds deserving homes. Me usually....;)

BooDiggens September 2 2007 4:32 AM EDT

I think drudge deserves it. He's been gona a while and it's good to have him back. With some funds to help his strat, I'm sure he'll stay around longer to liven up chat when he's around.

Slashundhack [We Forge Our Own Stuff] September 2 2007 4:48 AM EDT

I deserve it because I am Mother Teresa reincarnated .I once donated both my kidneys to a baby panda !I have taught the neighbors dog, calculus and spittoon repair, in the same week .My bellybutton grows enough potatoes to feed the local orphanage . My toe nails can cure Dropsy .The sweat from my brow will frighten mosquitoes so bad they can't lay their eggs.After putting a Full Nelson on a rampaging Bull elephant till it calmed down. Meditation training made him more able to deal with life's challenges .He teaches now on Rodeo drive to many people of note and is a positive force for good !Lastly I would use the money to help a dwarf renovate his place of business and refurbish his tools !

IndependenZ September 2 2007 6:21 AM EDT

A retiring farmer in preparation for selling his land, needed to rid his farm of animals. So he went to every house in his town.

To the houses where the man is the boss, he gave a horse. To the houses where the woman is the boss, a chicken was given.

He got toward the end of the street and saw a couple outside gardening. "Who's the boss around here?" he asked.

"I am." said the man.

"I have a black horse and a brown horse," the farmer said, "which one would you like?"

The man thought for a minute and said, "The black one."

"No, no, no, get the brown one." the man's wife said.

"Here's your chicken." said the farmer.





So really, I think Bast should get it. All of it.

QBJohnnywas September 2 2007 6:48 AM EDT

Bast needs shoes. Always.

Brakke Bres [Ow man] September 2 2007 7:40 AM EDT

I really don't deserve it, however im your next best thing

Adminedyit September 2 2007 11:14 AM EDT

because i told you to put the cap back on the glue....

Spawn September 2 2007 11:16 AM EDT

ill give you $3 for it all?

Lord Bob September 2 2007 11:53 AM EDT

I agree with those that said Tourneyprizes. Though if I were you, I'd just sell it for real cash.

Of course, I only say this because there's not a chance in Hades that I'd ever be selected for the money, so I might as well recommend it go to good use.

lostling September 2 2007 12:05 PM EDT

he could always divide it by the number of people who posted in the thread and give us all a share :)

QBRanger September 2 2007 12:10 PM EDT

I don't need it.

I don't want it.

Just give it away, perhaps sell it and give the money to your favorite charity.

J[Hybrid]Schnappes September 2 2007 12:14 PM EDT

Yeah I'd sell it for USD too but if not you should use it for contest prizes and stuff.

Angel of Death [Hell Blenders] September 2 2007 1:08 PM EDT

i would say i could use it for my NCB but ill save for that, just keep it for yourself dude

SBW September 2 2007 1:16 PM EDT

dont leave. well... i could hold the money and reopen OBubble Loans.. :)

Unappreciated Misnomer September 2 2007 1:27 PM EDT

i could use it to forge better weapons in the game, but i dont see how i really deserve it more than anyone else when i say 'i do' . someone spoke earlier that you should really get your moneys worth out of this.

48DangerZone September 2 2007 1:31 PM EDT

Rangers idea is the best no doubt. 21.5 x 7.50 =*Pulls out calculator* 161.25$
Why give it away? Treat yourself. And charity's are definetaly an option.

Godpanda September 2 2007 2:07 PM EDT

I actually thought about this post. Saying that...

I believe BarzooMonkey deserves the money. Truly. The money will then filter throughout the game through his awesome contests. It will let his creative ideas flow without restraint.

His contests give a grand flavor to this game. And, I think, we really can count on him to do something cool with the money. And hopefully he would use alot on himself. Because he spends so much on us, it would be nice to throw something his way.

Yes, there are many players who deserve the money. Not many would say no to it. But Barzoo will give everyone the oppurtunity to get it. And will give everyone something to smile about when we go to the forums.

th00p, to be honest, everyone deserves some of it. Everyone would use it, and be happy. So give it to them. Giving it to Barzoo is just a way of being lazy. His contes will distribute it among us instead of you entertain every active player's name =D

Spawn September 2 2007 2:41 PM EDT

Give it to Mikel!!!

Towards another minion, we need someone to beat Koy :D

Thraklight Resonance September 2 2007 4:03 PM EDT

$21.5m would be a nice prize for the lucky challenger in battle number 150,000,000.

BluBBen September 2 2007 4:13 PM EDT

I agree with GW, give it to Barzoo. His contests are the best!

Nerevas September 2 2007 4:30 PM EDT

21.5mil would help empower my newly purchased character (that cost me 40mil!)

Spawn September 2 2007 5:58 PM EDT

Correction...Cost Nere 42Mil!! ;) hehe

8DEOTWP September 2 2007 6:49 PM EDT

Or.. who wants to buy it?
<-

Hi im Jake September 2 2007 8:33 PM EDT

i agree with Barzoo keep it for your self and if you refuse to do that dont just give it away, make a contest.

Unappreciated Misnomer September 2 2007 11:02 PM EDT

hold several contests to compete for points and in the end the player with the high score wins?

Phrede September 3 2007 1:31 AM EDT

as suggested by Ranger = sell it and give the money to your favorite charity. What was the charity that we give to once a year on cb - dont remember who ran that - anyone ?

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 September 3 2007 1:37 AM EDT

Freed is thinking of the "Childs Play" charity, run by Sukotto

Marlfox [Cult of the Valaraukar] September 3 2007 10:44 AM EDT

*Ding ding ding* Feed starving children! *Ding ding ding* Help people who have nothing. *Ding ding*. Give to Marlfox charity. Do your part to help with humanitarian efforts. Remember, $1 of every mil you give to Marlfox charity fund, helps poor new players. Give to Marlfox charity fund. Hey, i even created a char called Marlfox charity fund. :)

48Zach September 3 2007 11:34 AM EDT

Go Child's Play Chirty! That's a good foundation.

ScY September 3 2007 12:31 PM EDT

I deserve 21.5M for my N*B. Plain and simple.

smallpau1 - Go Blues [Lower My Fees] September 3 2007 12:48 PM EDT

to be totally honest, i need real USD $300 to pay my roomates half of the rent, since he himself didnt give 30 days notice to me or the landlord that he was moving out, and he insists hes not going to pay it, =/

Edicinnej September 5 2007 1:19 AM EDT

I am not here to ask for your money. The topic did get me thinking though. Do you know how many gallons of orange juice and how many dozens of cookies you could buy at $7.50/1mill CB? Who would need all those OJ/cookies anyways? Let me explain! (and no not a convention for diabetics)

See, when a soldier is injured in Iraq/Afghanistan/Wherever the Army has to draw the blood it uses for transfusions from it's own supply. So if you were to donate blood to the Red Cross (not downing them by the way) it would not/could not make it into the Army's blood bank. With increased troop movements comes an increased demand for blood. The stuffs vital on the battle field.

So here is what _I_ think you should do. I think you should sell it for USD. Take some of those earnings and buy yourself a whole gallon of OJ and two trays of chocolate chip cookies. Next, find yourself an Army base. If not a base, if you live in a major city (or near) there should be a VA hospital in your area. Finally donate some blood and drink OJ/eat cookies.

Everyone wins!

p.s. Another reason I posted in this thread was to make everyone who read it aware of that issue. So if you're feeling extra patriotic and have a Base/VA hospital near you I would encourage you to donate some blood too.

ShadowWulf October 1 2007 12:12 PM EDT

so I can make my MCM better than anyone else's.

:)

competition can be fun.

BURning [DarK]ness October 1 2007 1:21 PM EDT

so i can finally afford to get me a AoF and name it

DH October 1 2007 2:48 PM EDT

Jenn, In response to your add for blood...being a disabled Vet from OIF 1 and 3, i thought fitting to go donate some plasma at the VA hospital today. thanks for reminding me to put some blood back where i got it. and i got orange juice and a cookie...it was yummy. oh and not to derail the topic...i'm a vet,..i'd use it for my re-entry into the CB world. after my i found my wife...doing unpg activities with other people, i had to sell out to pay the car payment and pay for a divorce...so help me get back on my CB feet.

zeaderan October 1 2007 3:28 PM EDT

assuming that jon doesnt recirculate the money back into the game, if you give the money to jon the supply of money in the game would fall and therefore drop the prices of all items benefiting everyone... i think :)

NINAbuser October 1 2007 11:44 PM EDT

Now I will admit that some of it will be going to my new archer but I feel that at least 10 million of it will be spent on buying items from the auction house to re-sell them in a new semi-contest I have made up where I do hidden upgrades on items while they are in auctions. I think it could be really fun to have that much $$ to throw around in my hidden auction mini game :P. Hope your choice isn't a difficult one.

Hyrule Castle October 1 2007 11:45 PM EDT

send it to charity think that sutek does ever year or w.e :)

Relic October 2 2007 9:49 AM EDT

I don't deserve it but who really does? I like the charity idea or maybe a few cool contests.
