$5,000,000 Contest -- Interest Check. (in Contests)


VivaPinata July 26 2008 9:26 AM EDT

In the light of recent happenings, those bundle of joyfuls and those very depressing, I am thinking about hosting a $5M CBD contest. I would offer more, but after setting an amount aside for another unnamed daily contest and calculating in all the random bids I've offered, $5M seems to be my current giving limit. At make up for it of course, participation will be absolutely free.

My idea: a Tri-Blender Tournament that will consist of three "rounds" and then a final elimination. If you know where I got my idea from, you don't get props. Everybody is encouraged to enter, if at least to relieve your minds from the more gloomy of recent events. Actually, this contest will probably not exist unless I have a solid amount of participants. It'll be fun. It'll be challenging. You'll make new friends. Meet new people. There will be food, and booze for the appropriately aged. Totally free. $5M. What do you say? Please post here if you are interested.

^_^

P.S. Sorry if this is in the wrong forum. If it is, my apologies and please move it and deduct the appropriate fines.

Interesting.... if only someone could come up with some ideas.... /me looks around shadily...

th00p July 26 2008 10:09 AM EDT

$5m? That's less than 1/4 what I gave away. Try harder.

Seriously though, that's pretty awesome. Props to you.

Eighth July 26 2008 10:32 AM EDT

Sounds cool.
Holler if you need any help.=)

MissingNo [Battle Royale] July 26 2008 10:34 AM EDT

Xiaz on Hiatus July 26 2008 10:42 AM EDT

I'd be interested - if time permits :)

Zaekyr July 26 2008 11:01 AM EDT

I like contests.

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] July 26 2008 11:48 AM EDT

I'd like to help run the camping portion of the contest.

I think using a tourney as the fighting portion of the contest would be best

Any ideas for the forging portion?

We should also find somewhere to discuss this wihtout giving away everything

lostling July 26 2008 12:10 PM EDT

dont bother making a contest... just give me all the money
! =x

VivaPinata July 26 2008 12:43 PM EDT

To clarify.

The tournament will not involve your pre-existing characters or money/networth -- CBD or otherwise. Nothing short of friendship, love, and everything bubbly in your tummy can influence this tournament. Sorry to say that your mastery over all things Carnage Blender... won't really give you any advantages. Don't get me wrong though; it will, hopefully, involve plenty of strategy, tactics like "organized double taps and chatroom alliances," and a witty, cunning fight for survival. But with that said, clean slates for everybody :D

And secondly, I would love help. Even by helping, you'll still be able to participate (partially) in the tournament and be eligible for the grand prize. Send me a CM or catch my PM box if you're interested in that.

And, again, please post if you're interested. Due to some of the things I'm planning, I really want at least 20-30 participators before I start this baby up. More importantly,

THIS THREAD IS THE SIGN-UP FOR THE CONTEST. IF YOU DON'T POST HERE, YOU DON'T GET INVITED.

:D

If it's not a great time consumer, I can join.

Well, even if it is, I'd join just for fun.

BadFish July 26 2008 12:49 PM EDT

Viva, you know I'm in.

VivaPinata July 26 2008 12:59 PM EDT

To further clarify, you won't lose any BA from this. You can probably do everything in between various fightlist shredding. You have nothing to lose. Except your attention, temporarily. :D

BarCap July 26 2008 1:12 PM EDT

VivaPinata July 28 2008 12:35 AM EDT

I'll be posting the Official "Entry" thread that (finally) explains more about this contest sometime around midnight Tuesday morning, if I remember. Until then, I'll be chatmailing everybody who posted with VIP instructions. :D

VivaPinata July 28 2008 12:44 AM EDT

As an extra incentive and surprise to everybody, I'll be tripling the grand prize to roughly 11M CBD and an additional 4M CBD worth of gear. Or about $50 USD, if you want to look at it that way :P

Just promise to have fun.

LuisOrtiz July 28 2008 7:38 AM EDT

Well, since you've increased the initially paltry prize offering (lol), I've decided that this contest is now worthy of my intelligence, wit, and general awesomeness. I'm in, baby.

BluBBen July 28 2008 4:06 PM EDT

Well, 5mill is quite a lot. And the rest sounds like fun.

I'm in!
