!!! - Wimblewrong 2020 First-Round Draw - !!!
« on: April 14, 2020, 11:13:47 AM »
Welcome to your official Wimblewrong 2020 First-Round Draw thread. The draw will be posted here tomorrow (Wednesday 15th) at midday (BST). You can still sign up here if you haven't already.

In the meantime, here are the rules. I have amended one of the rules and added a new one (both in bold) - if anyone would like to object or suggest a better rule in place of either of those, now is the time to bring it up so we have the rules clarified before we begin. Or else, forever hold your peace (or hold it until next year anyway).

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. In the event of a tie after the voting period has passed, the voting time will be extended by 12 hours, and if after that there is no winner, the next player to get a vote will win the tie.

5. Common sense prevails in image choice.

6. Pictures can be uploaded to places like imgur for those who have no webspace, but the picture must be displayed in the game thread.

7. In some cases it is necessary for one or more high-scoring losers to progress to the next round. High-scoring losers are simply those who get the most votes out of all the losing players in the round. If it comes down to two players who have the same number of votes, the player who lost by the smaller margin will progress as the high-scoring loser.

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.

Because we have more players than usual wanting to take part this year, there are going to be six rounds, including the final. In the first couple of rounds there'll be quite a few high-scoring losers that will progress to the next round; currently we're looking at about five from the first round and four from the second, but I'll confirm when I do the draw.

Cheers

Yes, cracking effort  selectivememory. This is going to be an absolute monster to manage, so we should all try and pitch in with keeping track of matches, voting etc.

Would it be wrong to keep a dossier on people who don't vote regularly and doxx them to paedohunters?

Cos it would be a shame not to do that again this year

Right, draw incoming in a little over an hour. Just to confirm the high-scoring loser situation, we have 38 players taking part this year. That means we'll have 19 winners in the first round, and five high-scoring losers. In the second round we'll have 12 winners and four high-scoring losers. And that'll bring us to the 16 we need left at the beginning of the third round.

Tie 3: ZoyzaSorris vs Small Man Big Horse

Tie 5: Pearly-Dewdrops Drops vs Ian Drunken Smurf
Tie 6: madhair60 vs selectivememory
Tie 7: finnquark vs Crabwalk

Before we get going, I’d like to remind everyone that your shots need to be either 600 x 800 or 800 x 600 pixels in size. It’s not a hard thing to get right, so please make sure you do. Thanks.

Servers might want to PM their opponents once they've played their first shots. Most people seem to have been online though in the last couple of days, so hopefully no one will forget that they're playing.

Alright, get cracking then. Best of luck to everyone!

Apropos of nothing, I'd just like to quote myself from yesterday:

Or if you want to work at a higher resolution, pick something else that's 4x3 and scale down. 1600x1200, 1920x1440, etc.
