It was a serious question. I've always wondered if that's what's happened when pictures look like that or if some sort of uploading process destroyed them. I'm that stupid.

No worries. Screen cap'ing would require i create an image file then crop it down to what Im trying to show. 

 

Or snap a pic with my phone and upload it straight to photobucket then slap it on the lit. 

 

But yeah, video screens look weird when photo'd or videoed by another electronic.

So... umm, I demand an answer! After the first battle, the losers battle again, and the winners battle again, and half of each go to the second round? I'm just curious about the technicalities.

Conley - cool to see you!

Liana - I thought I did answer, sorry.  You have to lose twice to get eliminated.  So after round 1 the losers go to a loser bracket.  Then in round 2 the winners from the loser bracket advance and the losers of the winners bracket drop into the losers bracket and battle the winners of the losers bracket. 

Make sense?

Just a personal request, since a lot of people read/post at work and some of us (me) have toddlers we'd like to have naps--could we not put the videos to auto-play? Especially because if more than one person does it on the same page it's a little much.

Or I'm the neighborhood old lady telling you to turn that noise down! But really.

wickedvoodoo's picture

My augur sense tells me there will be no problem filling the slots. At least initially.

The problem will be keeping sixty four people committed. Last time we had one no-show in round 1 and one person pull out later due to unforseens. We had the contingencies to deal with that and we rocked on.

We have exponentially increased the participants though, so there will be a similar increase in the probability people have to withdraw. Plus there's the fact that WAR is a lot easier on this end. Signing up is a doddle, the actual battle could be another story.

I fear we'll need those substitutes. I also hope people are aware of how much time this can take up. There's a lot of reading involved and, y'know, the writing bit. If you aren't tough enough to give WAR its due then don't sign up!

When did it go from 32 to 64? I could have sworn when I signed up it was 32. Either way, I'm still in.

From what I gather (because it was clearly posted in Utah's introduction) It was 32 last year and 64 this year. Then I had to slap my dear friend Utah that I just met in the face and tell Him(because he might be God) (so maybe I plead really) to add more numbers to the damn thing.
