T45: Gridiron II (in Contests)
Welcome to the gridiron.
You and 9-19 of your fellow blenders will engage in a ruthless battle for supremacy, Football Blender
This is a team tournament, each team has the following positions to be filled.
Offensive Guard (1-3)
Offensive Tackle (1-3)
Wide Receiver (1-3)
Tight End (1-3)
: some positions, those which are noted with a (1), are mandatory to be filled. All other positions could have more players filling them in case more people join.
Your team will earn points based on the score of each player, using the following model:
Quarterback related points:
- Every 50k MPR the quarterback has earns 6 points.
- If the kicker can match the quarterback's MPR, each 6 point gain becomes 7 points. For every 50k MPR the kicker has below the quarterback, one of these extra points is deducted. The kicker must match the cumulative MPR of the quarterback, including MPR gained from synergies. (QB MPR = WR MPR + QB MPR)
- For every 100k MPR a wide receiver has, 50k is added to the quarterback's MPR.
- The center must match the non-cumulative MPR of the Quarterback. For every 50k MPR below the quarterback, the opposing team gains 7 points.
Halfback related points:
- Every 100k MPR that the halfback has earns 7 points.
- Half of the MPR of the fullback has is added to the halfback.
- MPRs of the Offensive Guards, and Offensive Tackles are added to the halfback's MPR.
- The Tight end's MPR is added to the Full backs' MPR.
All scores will be rounded to the closest 50k for scoring reasons.

I would like to play Fullback on a team :)
I, of course, want to play :)
October 17 2009 4:49 PM EDT
I would like to play, let me know if you need a player.
October 17 2009 4:57 PM EDT
8 players, yet no team captain yet :p
October 17 2009 4:59 PM EDT
I don't mind being team captain, i'll make a new thread, just call it "First Team" we can discuss positions you want to play and team name.
Love the idea but wont be joining...
I will play :).. However, I will be away from the computer for most of today, so message me if you want me on your team ;)
Also please do save a spot on the team for me :P, don't message me and then change your mind ;)
October 17 2009 10:30 PM EDT
I want to play :). Anyone looking for a team cm me, I'll be the quarterback.
October 17 2009 10:40 PM EDT
I should be able to play
October 18 2009 12:01 AM EDT
Need 1 more for minimum team and up to 11 more for full team, post in the thread "Tournament: First Team". We are also still debating a team name if you come with suggestions.
October 18 2009 4:07 AM EDT
Wraithlin: please be aware that you need 2 teams to even start. You only need 1 participant to make a full team. Then wait a bit for a second team unless you want to lose by default ;p
October 18 2009 3:19 PM EDT
October 18 2009 6:27 PM EDT
I guess if we don't have an opponent on the 23rd we'll just split my team and play without a full roster on both.
October 18 2009 9:17 PM EDT
I'll play, my position will be Center and I'm starting a new team: The Scientists!
October 18 2009 9:21 PM EDT
I need more sleep... I mean to say that I'm going to join Team Blender...
October 19 2009 1:09 AM EDT
go sleep joel, don't over exercise yourself ;)
October 19 2009 1:10 AM EDT
Don't have time to play this (midterms coming up), but I'd like to give slayer mad props for coming up with this.
October 19 2009 1:26 AM EDT
Both teams seem to have a basic roster but the more people will play, the higher the points (and thus the prizes) will be!
October 22 2009 11:59 AM EDT
Bump. Please make a post on Team Zombies or Team Blender if you'd like to play in this tournament. It's a win-win scenario where everyone gets money.
October 23 2009 5:46 PM EDT
Nemeritz - Quarterback
WhiteWolf - Kicker
KrossOut - Center
Wraithlin - Offensive Guard
adampurkis, MessBrutal - Offensive Tackle
Deemer - Halfback
Apoclyspe - Fullback
Merrit - Wide Receiver
Ceslis - Tight End
October 24 2009 7:26 AM EDT
And so the game starts with the Zombies kicking off the ball. Will the blenders score?
October 24 2009 6:07 PM EDT
Now are we allowed to make two clans for these teams? Personally i think that would be holding with the spirit of the tournament, but I wanted to not get booted for it first.
Tournament characters are unable to make clans.
October 24 2009 6:12 PM EDT
Next time one of these team themed tourneys come up, I think you guys should have it setup so that our chars are automatically put into 2 clans. Not sure how you would go about that in the code, but I think it's something to think about doing.
October 24 2009 6:13 PM EDT
It'd be nice, but thats not something I have any control over. (Yet!)
October 29 2009 1:31 AM EDT
I just want to score a touchdown! Mendenhall... you better not fumble >:o
I was curious for a future gridiron tourney could the kicker have a significant role for field goals?
Also, instead of the center having to match the QBs mpr for the extra point, how about the QB just scores 7 and if the center can match the QBs MPR they go for 2 and get 1 extra point?
October 30 2009 1:36 PM EDT
less than a day left. Go teams!
October 30 2009 1:40 PM EDT
Small question, will the player not using half the tourney BA mpr be calculated?
October 30 2009 1:41 PM EDT
I don't know...
October 30 2009 5:32 PM EDT
I'd like to give a pre-ending evaluation:
Next time put the BA cap on 3500 and put the bonus on little higher than 350%. I think 500% would be much better. Apart from that, tops!
October 30 2009 5:34 PM EDT
"Also, instead of the center having to match the QBs mpr for the extra point, how about the QB just scores 7 and if the center can match the QBs MPR they go for 2 and get 1 extra point?"
I thought that was the kicker's job? the center could just make his own team lose by giving score off to the other team...
October 30 2009 5:44 PM EDT
isn't that how it's in real football also? if the center loses the ball, the opposite team could score ;)
However, at the moment, neither Center is making a mistake.
October 31 2009 6:31 PM EDT
October 31 2009 8:54 PM EDT
Soooo.... Who won? And why does it say in Community>Tournaments that Nemeritz is the winner of this tournament when I beat him and I'm third place?
The community section always just says that whoever had the highest score won the tourney. It doesn't actually reflect what is going on in it.
October 31 2009 8:58 PM EDT
...I always realize my mistake too late, heheh. The tounament must officially count the highest SCORE for the winner of the tourney even though, in this tourney, MPR is the factor used for scoring for a team.
I'm just really anxious to know which team gets the win!
October 31 2009 8:58 PM EDT
I think the tournies auto register highest score. The results on the last tourney showed KO in first and Nem in second, but Nem in face was 1, KO 2, and I was 3rd. Look at the MPR standings for the rank, but remember this tourney has special scoring that adds a variety of MPRS :)
Would be nice if they said final scores.
Don't worry Joel, i believe Blender has won this tournament.
October 31 2009 9:00 PM EDT
Team Blender won. Shade and/or Slayer will post official scores.
October 31 2009 9:14 PM EDT
The tournaments are scripted in such a way that the stats page always shows the players with the highest score to 'win' it.
However, most tournaments have different rules. Because I am a member of this tournament and Slayer came up with it, we have to wait for his final answer.
However I think Team Blender won with 54 vs 37 points.
This would make 1.08 mil earned for the Blenders (each) and $175k for the Zombies (each).
October 31 2009 9:21 PM EDT
Awesome! I can't wait until Slayer posts it! We did great!
Doing the scores right now.
Team Blender - 60
Team Zombie - 41
I'll compare these with Shade's scores as well, I suspect it is simply rounding differences, but for scoring purposes we will use my scores considering it only gives everyone more money. :)
October 31 2009 11:11 PM EDT
Nice Tourny Slayer! I also do think team work helped us get the advantage, a lesson for future team tournys.
Good Job Team Blender!
And kudos to Kefeck for getting 1st (any extra bonus for him? An MVP Bonus?)
Good Job to both teams.

I like Slayers Scores!
Great tourney guys. Mad props to my awesome teammates. Love you kevlar. :P
I agree, awesome tourney. Go with Slayers scores, noone is going to complain about more money.
November 1 2009 12:29 AM EDT
We all know Shade won't mind agreeing to Slayer's scores if it means more money. :D
November 1 2009 1:09 AM EST
All hail TourneyPrizes!
