Betting on T36 (in Off-topic)


blackshadowshade February 7 2009 3:20 PM EST

Hi all!

I thought that I might as well get into the swing of things and get involved in T36 even though I'm not going to be a participant.

In this vein, I'd like to back Team Awesome (if only because it's got Hakai!) for 50k up to five times, and am looking for five people who are willing to back Team Blender for 50k.

Feel free to join in the betting fun (and go ahead and hijack the thread for your own bets to do with T36), and let's egg on our teams!


Go Awesome!

I'll take all 5 bets for 50k apiece :)

AdminShade February 7 2009 3:21 PM EST

Bets don't go in Contests because with contests you aren't supposed to make a profit :) (moved to off-topic)

blackshadowshade February 7 2009 3:23 PM EST

Thanks Shade!

('-'), no deal. You can take one of the bets. :)


BTW, first preference goes to those who are NOT participating in the tourney.

Hakai [Aye Phelta Thi] February 8 2009 1:47 AM EST

Bump in the interest of monetary gain! :D

blackshadowshade February 8 2009 2:23 PM EST

Is no one else willing to put their money where their Blender is?

Go Awesome!

QBOddBird February 8 2009 2:25 PM EST

I'm willing, but watching for non-tourney players to bet, and besides that we're on the same betting side >.>

GoLDeNGaTE February 8 2009 2:27 PM EST

I'll take a bet on team Blender...I'd put as much as i could on them but im under the impression i can only bet 50K? So, to start, 50K on Blender :)

DoS [Demon Forging] February 8 2009 2:31 PM EST

I'll go 50k on Blender :)

Wizard'sFirstRule February 9 2009 12:29 AM EST

blackshadowshade February 9 2009 3:18 AM EST

Currently, I have 50k against the following players:

('-')
AssistToTheRegMan

If no one else chimes in, I will have 50k against the following tournament participants:

DASBro
GogetaSS4
DoS


Go Awesome!

Tal [G6] February 9 2009 3:19 AM EST

GO BLENDER ill do 500k that we win!!!

Hakai [Aye Phelta Thi] February 9 2009 3:47 AM EST

Tal, I am interested in taking that bet if you are serious and do not have any other offers.

blackshadowshade February 9 2009 3:49 AM EST

Yay, Hakai!

Go, go, go, Team Awesome!

AdminShade February 9 2009 3:09 PM EST

This doesn't mean anything but I made a quick calculation.

Team Blender: 22
Team Awesome: 17

:)

Tal [G6] February 9 2009 3:13 PM EST

alright hakai your on

wanna make a PR or something should we just use this thread?

(0.0) February 9 2009 3:15 PM EST

anyone want to take a 5 million bet that Team Blender wins?

Hakai [Aye Phelta Thi] February 9 2009 4:06 PM EST

5 mil is a hefty bet there, SK. Good luck finding someone to back that.

And Tal, this thread is fine. I mean, I don't really think you'll back out. Are there any terms on the bet? Like time constrictions for which it must be paid? Upon completion of the tournament or...?

Tal [G6] February 12 2009 5:58 PM EST

just whenever im having fun just if you win ill send immediately so i don't forget. but i believe most women are capable of remembering everything

QBOddBird February 13 2009 10:33 AM EST

Team Awesome FTWinz! ;)

blackshadowshade February 14 2009 12:24 PM EST

Still waiting for the winner to be announced ...

QBOddBird February 14 2009 12:25 PM EST

It's expected to be Team Blender, given the final few minutes of the tourney.

GoLDeNGaTE February 14 2009 12:53 PM EST

Wire my money to 'Thursday Evening' please ;)

Tal [G6] February 14 2009 12:54 PM EST

blackshadowshade February 14 2009 1:11 PM EST

Congrats, Team Blender! Money being sent now.

Soul Eater February 14 2009 1:17 PM EST

Thanks, this tourney was fun. Although if I hadn't scraped my first 3 minion team my score would have been much, much higher. Since I eventually went back to a 3 minion team again....

I was a little disappointed at the lack of participation from the Blender community in cheering on the two teams or the willingness to place even a couple of small bets. However, maybe a couple more tourneys like this will promote some positive community spirit, and I'll be there cheering from the sidelines.

Well done to both teams!

Hakai [Aye Phelta Thi] February 14 2009 4:27 PM EST

Hehehe, I learned a lot and had a blast.

Hakai (Frost Mage) 98.215.162.7 Tal Destra (Tal's Forging) $500000 -- tourny was fun ;p 4:22 PM EST
