The Card Olympics Game #7!

Postby 9003 » Thu Aug 06, 2020 10:24 am

I can't believe this is the 7th games I have hosted its amazing the fun we have each month!
Hello one and all today we are gathered to start yet again the games for the greatest of the greatest card collectors.

First the boring stuff like rules and sign up

Code: Select all
[b]Main Nation: [nation][/nation][/b]
[b]Puppet 1:[nation][/nation][/b]
[b]Puppet 2:[nation][/nation][/b]
[b]Puppet 3:[nation][/nation][/b]
[b]Puppet 4:[nation][/nation][/b]
[b]Puppet 5:[nation][/nation][/b]
[b]Puppet 6:[nation][/nation][/b]
[b]Puppet 7:[nation][/nation][/b]
[b]Puppet 8:[nation][/nation][/b]
[b]Puppet 9:[nation][/nation][/b]
[b]Puppet 10:[nation][/nation][/b]

[b]What is your favorite word?[/b]


The rules!
1. No outside influence from nations you own/control is allowed to impact your olympic puppets
This means you can not gift in to them (you can gift out if you would like)
This means no buying or selling from nations you control
This means no hosting pull events with your main for your puppets (you CAN hold a pull event with ONLY the cards on your olympic puppets bank/cards)
This means you can not "block" bids, with a non-olympic nation, you are more then welcome to bid on everything that another player has bid on with ONLY your olympic puppets.
This means no bank transfers in.
This list is not fully inclusive but rather a list of some examples of what is against the rules.

2. No asks for more than 30 bank.
The logic behind this rule is to limit the amount of luck involved in winning and rather be testing players skills at using non standard ways to make more bank, such as flipping cards, finding the best market, and getting more creative then just opening packs and junking cards.
If a card is being sold at 30 and someone up bids it past 30 that is okay but remember you can not use outside nations to up the price. (you can use your own puppets however if they have the bank but you can not set an ask above 30)
If you get a really good legendary card that you do not want to sell because it is way above 30 hold on to it till after the games or gift it out.

3. Good sportsmanship
This is key, in the past we have had some issues with certain players being less than friendly. If a player has a long streak of bad sportsmanship I will issue stronger and stronger punishment ending with being permanently banned from the games. If you are going to protest the games that is okay but I ask that you only do so in 1 post so that others do not have to scroll by pages and pages of rants.

4. Players can only win 1 category
Last games ended up being dominated by a team, as such I feel the need to make it so that players can only win one category but can compete for all!
If someone does win more than one they will win the lower rarity first then the wildcard. ( Uncommon, UR, Epic, Wildcard)



Prizes and what are we collecting today!
Categories are:
Common,
Uncommon,
Rares
Wild Card: cards with the tyranny_by_majority classifications on them (In case you need links to all of them S2 (Courtesy of The Northern Light)

And of course what are the games without prizes!
Keeping it simple this week and going for 1 legendary per win!

With that the games are on good luck and happy farming

I'm finding it really weird, to play without Racoda's regularly updated dispatch. I'm realising how much I checked it in the last two games to see what was going on. I feel like I'm working blind just now. I'm tempted to code up an equivalent, so I can see for myself what everyone else is doing. But I suspect my brain would melt trying!

Racoda, your efforts were very much appreciated!

Once in a while I've been trying to figure out what categories the other players are going for by looking at their puppets' decks. It's a lot more tedious without a leaderboard, though.

I feel like I'm losing the Olympics right now simply because I am not getting very good pulls - my best so far has been Farrakhan, which got me 6.00 bank. But my luck could turn around.

My first pull was a semi-cheap legendary (Pencil Sharpeners 2), which sort of helped me. What sucked was that the other person planning to go for UCs was even luckier, so I decided to go for something else.

I was about to say this seems obviously inaccurate, but it appears that Gio junked most of his rares. He was in the lead in that category when I counted, so that move doesn't make much sense to me...

I wonder what category he will try for next. Still, I'm glad I'm in the lead again.

Jumping in rares.
might even buy them at 0.12,

at this price, I have potential for 500 cards on 2 nations.

edit : I report the ownership of 355 rares


Edit ; I noted I was attacked by gio, when I was off-site, I got penny-bidded on multiple .10 rare bids. he has to be in the rares.

Definitely going to lose this one.

Fauzjhia has a commanding lead in rares, Riemstagrad in uncommons, Bawkie will soon have one in commons, and AWT in Tyranny by Majority.

Farrakhan S2 is still the best pull I have had in the entire competition.

Well I figure since I'm just farming normally, except for selling valuable cards from the puppets and buying rares, I might as well stay in. Lest I pull a really good legendary.

Bawkie's already bought hundreds. I could beat them if I junked my rares but I don't think I'd like the number of bids I have to place (or the difficulty of finding JV asks).
