5.6 "Catching Fire Special"

 

Alfred just won The Ventures last week, which means he is now in possession of the first Resurrection Stone this season. But there's another specialty in store now. The teams are shifting at this point, and everyone seems to be falling on the wayside. It's time to begin.

 

Now, in the midst of another busy season, it is time to really get the ball rolling. So far, there has been child's play. Things have been a bit sloppier this season, and I personally apologize for that, as time management has been a pain in the ass this season. However, we are about to venture into the heart of Box Office Alliance over the course of the next few weeks. And we're going to start with making the Team Captain a position of incredible power. Starting this week, the Ventures will take on a new phase...and the violence that will ensue will bring us to an exciting final Venture. The stage is being set, starting today, and what will follow will be some of the hopefully best games of Box Office Alliance ever. And nothing will be the same again.

 

This week, the remaining players participated in the season's Special Edition episode. UNlike prior seasons, this season's Special does not have been rewards attached. IN fact, as far as point play out, the amount awarded will not deviate much from the mix. But other things are in store, and the process will unfold over this and the next week. This is where things kick off, in the middle of the season, and an explosion is forthcoming. So now, let's see how the teams did!

 

Alfred's Alliance

Alfred: 85.68%  +3(+2 85%+, +1 highest Question 2)

Tower: 64.21% (placeholder)

5.6 "Catching Fire Special" - cont.

 

Chasmmi and Films dominated and emerged at the top this week, despite competing against very fierce competition from some of the other players. Pulling out a solid victory, the duo is now poised at the top of the charts this week, and that makes them "superior" to all others...as now we venture into The Ventures, and the dominant Team Captain is about to be established. This week, there are two Ventures, and at the end of them, we will officially begin to compile a ranking system, whereby the teams are ranked on the basis not of points but of the strength of Team Captains. The Team Captain who holds the lead at the end of this week will receive a special prize...and the losers shall have a bounty to pay.

 

Olive came out the gate full swing this week. As his loyal founders XenoZodiac and Acsc1312 have both vanished, assumed dead, Olive has taken reign as Team Captain of "The Shadowgods". After posting the highest score of the season, Olive has certainly put his name up in contention as one of the most prominent players left standing...but it's the ones not standing that he may have to worry about the most, as ghosts are about to come haunting, and The Creator's Game continues with a big surprise forthcoming.

 

Olive is up for the challenge now...a challenge against current dominant Team Captain Alfred, who has won more than one Ventures now, and most recently came to possess a Resurrection Stone. Although Alfred has not yet used it, it remains in his possession. But if Olive defeats Alfred in this week's Ventures before Alfred uses it, he can very well steal the Resurrection Stone from Alfred. Therefore, it would be in Alfred's best interest to use it as soon as possible, to avoid losing a major bargaining chip.

 

Alfred is top dog at the moment. His success over the past few weeks has been rivaled by few. And although "The Equation Sensation" may top him in the charts, he is perhaps more capable than either Jim or Goffe. After being largely a dormant force over the past couple seasons, merely playing it by ear, Alfred is finally rising to the top again. The last time Alfred rose to the top, he finished the season in first place. Now, he is once more on the high rise. Olive may be his biggest opponent at the moment. Ironically, Olive is the embodiment of Acsc1312, as a loyal "Shadowgod" in Acsc's absence. Acsc was Alfred's first major competitor in the Season 1 finale, where Alfred barely pulled out a win. Moreover, however, Acsc was always CEDAR's biggest ally, and CEDAR, now vanquished after the events of the Legend War last season left him defeated, was and has always been Alfred's biggest enemy. The events of Season 1 left a bitter feeling between Alfred and CEDAR, when CEDAR accused "The Firerisers" of illegal actions, and Alfred and his then-partner Townzy became suspects in a horrible criminal activity. The animosity has died down tremendously since, yet a sentiment has always been there, a sentiment toward hatred and distrust. Now that CEDAR is gone, Alfred can finally reign as the superior player of Box Office Alliance. Of all the greats, Alfred alone has made it this far. Totem, CEDAR, Xeno, Riczhang, Acsc1312....all gone. Alfred is in a league largely of his own at this point, with only a couple other greats left standing. They may pose no match for him.

 

...but one person will. The game will never be the same again.

 

 

Now, we get to the first part of this week's Ventures. This was based off the bonus question that all players were asked. The bonus question will not determine overall rank in the Ventures. However, it will be used as a basis for their entrance into the Ventures this week. The highest scorer on the bonus will have the biggest opportunity in this Venture. So, without further ado, here are the scores for the Team Captains on the bonus question:

 

Alfred - No score.

 

Chasmmi - 97.12%

 

Jim Shorts - 87.09%

 

Olive - 97.53%

 

 

These four remain the only active Team Captains at the present moment. As Olive scored highest, he will be the first to place in this week's Ventures. Here is Olive's consolation:

 

Olive gets to choose which of the three Team Captains to exclude from The Venture altogether. By being excluded, that Team Captain will rank last at the end of the compilation of team rankings this week and will therefore lose any advantage that may be gained from the competition. The other three will then compete in this week's Ventures.

 

Olive, choose who to exclude.
