This process is difficult to manage. I try to get the people to post their choices here and/or to PM their chosen members, but they never seem to do that so I'm always stuck mediating the situation and that takes a lot of time. Right now Dom Cobb has purchased an immunity for 8 points, and Mattrek has not yet responded. Empire has also been chosen as a running mate but has more than 8 points as well to purchase an immunity.

Next week I may make a change regarding immunities.

Just an idea...can't we just post here if we'd buy an immunity right after results are posted that way the winning team knows who they have to choose from/what other options to choose?

You're way behind the times mate. That has already been proved inefficient using trial and error method.

The most effective way I can think to run Season 2 would be to let this game have its own sub-forum like Baumer's Summer Game. That way it's more noticeable and accessible. Only a few people seem to post in here every week, and the rest respond to the PMs I send. But because I have to be here to mediate things when it's PM-based, things get slowed down.

And Mattrek, I don't know why you didn't get the message because I did send on and Dom Cobb got it, but I'm accepting your purchase of immunity.

CEDAR, this means you are up next, and you can purchase immunity also for 8 points.

....this is becoming a clusterfuck. Don't worry, guys. This season is a bit of a test to see how the game can change, and I see ways already that next season will be different.

Guys, everything was offline for me yesterday. The site was down for me and I'm not certain if anyone else experienced any glitches, but I did get predictions from everyone I think so maybe not. However, obviously The Challenge has been delayed, but I have it all under management now. Here's the scoop:

Dom Cobb, Mattrek, CEDAR, and EmpireStrikesBack each purchased immunities and lose 8 points a piece. That's 32 points that have been added to the Bank Account. Now the two members chosen to go into The Challenge are:

Electric and JamesFord92

Here's how The Challenge will work this week. Both Electric and JamesFord92 answered the questions this week, so whoever has the highest score of the two will remain in the game while the lower-scoring player will be eliminated.

Up first, we have last week's Challenge. Because of delays, the Challenge ended up coinciding with this week's questions, so as both members chosen for the Challenge (Electric of Amazingly Adequate and JamesFord92 of The Wild Cars) each answered all the questions fairly, the higher scoring player would advance on while the lower scoring player would be eliminated. Both players' scores will still weigh into their team averages, however, because they weren't “officially” eliminated (well only one will be eliminated) until after the results. So, here's the results of the Challenge:





James, you were a great player this season and I hope to see you back later. You made it a good way through the season (more than halfway) and even further than your original partner Spaghetti.

Now, onto this week:

"Heating Up" - Game 7

We've reached game 7, and sixteen members remain alive on six teams. This week, two members from the same team were eliminated. JamesFord92 of "The Wild Cards" and formerly of "The Very Best, Like No One Ever Was" lost the Challenge, while fellow teammate and alpha member of "The Wild Cards" DerekVI was eliminated for his third consecutive strike.

Meanwhile, "The Firerisers" led a very close game. CEDAR led the team and earned the highest individual score of the season, thus earning 5 Bank Account points. The results are as follows:


Electric: 95.59% +3 (+2 2nd individual, +1 90%+)

EmpireStrikesBack: 0% -1 (-1 1st strike)

RichWS: 94.22% +1 (+1 90%+)

Totem: 85.93% +2 (+2 2nd team)

AVERAGE: 91.93% +12

XenoZodiac: 91.39% +2 (+1 3rd team, +1 90%+)

AVERAGE: 90.00% +5

Point totals will be updated as soon as possible (today, preferably). Also, it will now cost you 10 points to buy an immunity.

We're 7 games in and 6 members have been eliminated so far. 16 still remain. I'm only expecting about 15 games a season, so we're slightly off track for that number.

So, this is important:

THERE MAY BE A SURPRISE ELIMINATION NEXT WEEK...no further details at this point. Just FYI, it's survival of the fittest.
