« on: June 28, 2015, 04:38:17 PM »
It's here!!!! The official draw for the 2015 Wimblewrong. Any further entries will have to sit on the bench in the event of a drop out.

A word before the actual draw, because of the lop-sided nature of the entrants, there will be two rounds were best of's will advance. In the first round, the highest scoring loser will advance, and the second the two highest losers will advance so:

Round 1: 22 entrants
Round 2: 11 Winners + Best Loser
Quarter Finals: 6 Winners + 2 Best Losers
Semi Finals: 4 Winners
Final: 2 Winner (probably have 3/4th place play off as well)

Without further a do, here is the official draw:

Game 1: Hangthebuggers vs DukeDeMondo
Game 2: Poisson Du Jour  vs chocky909
Game 3 : Miles vs alan nagsworth
Game 4 : Paul Calf vs glitch
Game 5 : Big Jack McBastard vs wasp_f15ting
Game 6 : kittens vs Crabwalk
Game 7 : Frazer vs Petey Pate
Game 8 : Subtle Mocking vs Eight Taiwanese Teenagers
Game 9 : ziggy starbucks vs DocDaneeka
Game 10 : BlodwynPig vs Old Thrashbarg
Game 11 : Cerys vs Ray Travez

Everybody, let's wimblewronging!

Yes, they do. I'll repost them here for clarity:

Quote
1. Each match will consist of two shots per player, except the final in which there are three shots per player.
2. The player with the opening shot (i.e. the server) can put what they want in their picture.  But all subsequent pictures (i.e the return) must contain, either visually or conceptually, an element of the previous picture.
3. The pictures will be 800 x 600, or 600 x 800 pixels in size.
4. Voting will take place by posting the name of your favourite in the game thread immediately after play has ended (i.e. when the 4th picture of each match has been posted).  The voting will last for 48 hours.
5. Common sense prevails in image choice.
6. Pictures can be uploaded to places like photobucket.com for those who have no webspace, but the picture must be displayed in the game thread.

And a reminder of time permitted:  You have 72 hours to post an image from when the round starts or from when the last shot has been posted. Keep a look out on your game for when your opponent posts their shot, as it's from that time that the 72 hours start.

You create a new thread in this forum for each game. So for you, you will need to create a thread called something like "Wimblewrong 2015 Round 1 Paul Calf vs glitch" and post your first image in there. glitch will then post his return image in it, and then post your return, and finally he will end the match posting his in there. Voting will then happen in that thread. And new rounds will have new threads.

EDIT: Ah, you sly devil. You snuck you serve in whilst I was writing that.

Oh, fuck socks. Anyone to set up and replace Subtle Mocking? ETT will you be willing to go first? I'll jump in if no one else does, but I'm quite busy this week, so I'm not able to play until the weekend.

Fuck it, I'll have a go if you're still looking for a player. Busy over the next couple of days, but I'll be able to throw something together in time if ETT does serve.

Promise I'll get started tomorrow (at some point in the evening probs) it's been too sunny/worky/gym-ish over the last few days to contemplate sitting in this hot ass bedroom (ladies) any longer than is necessary.
