Cardlympics! 8 The game 9003 makes a new name for it

Postby 9003 » Sun Sep 06, 2020 4:09 pm

Calling ALL card collectors large and small who can do it the best the goal of the Cardlympics are to find who is the best of the best or at least the best that month. That being said everyone is welcome to join this game! (I am starting them a tad later as I have a busy weekend!) As a change this time around there will be 1 category. However plenty of prizes!!! If you want to win free legendary cards Keep reading!


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 shape?[/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
Well duh because you can only be first you can't be first AND second :P



Prizes and what are we collecting today!
The winner of the 8th games will be whomever collects the most Ultra Rare cards!

And of course what are the games without prizes!
If you have the most UR cards at the end of the games you will win not 1 not 2 but 3 legendary cards!
Second place sticking to the number theme will get 2 legendary
and third place will get 1 legendary.

everyone else will get a good job!

With that the games are on good luck and happy farming. Go for the purple!

I also would've loved to participate, but I'm a bit too busy for it and I have some URs on sale on my puppets, so that may become a problem. Of course, if I don't participate, I'd even benefit from buys!

OK, I've recovered enough from the Cardlympics 2 to participate in 8 with some of the puppets from 2 and some newly created ones. Hope recycling isn't a problem. I did clean them up so they had 0 cards/bank when I submitted this post. Do I wait until you register my entry to start (I checked the beetles and they were all still empty so I decided to wait for official notice of the start time)?

I did rather well, i think..

I found 3 lower tier legendaries (and 1 Jakker, but didn't sell it).

I total, i managed to harvest a total of ~130.00 bank, of wich i converted ~125.00 in Ultra Rares.

I have no idea what the other competitors did, so i look forward to the final results.

Wow! That's quite a haul!

I don't think I'm anywhere close to that.
I'd just been cursing myself, because I forgot to spend the last of my bank last night. It sounds like it would have made no difference though!

This games felt very much like a race. I kept trying to spend bank early, to try and get lower priced cards. It was hard to think of any strategies to get ahead. Very different to the games I've been in before.

51,91 BANK IN TOTAL 9 my leg was worth 17, so that's will only 68 bank (not even 100 ultra rares. )
if we taken into account, bank lost to ultra-rare sellers and 1.00 transfer gift, made only 70 bank.

you can see why I am not surprised I did not win
I only found 1 legends I did not have found, so that inferior to your 130 bank


there is no real strategy, if you have my luck, you lose, and that is it.
if you get some legends and sell them, you might win. But sell no legend, and you won't win.

I also multiple day with low numbers of packs.

kinda knew I would not win. i had trash luck.

Congrats to the winners!

This time i was convinced that i would get a medal, but no... at least three players did better.

Very well done!


on the gameplay: I liked this version of the olympics more then the others, because it's a level playing field for everyone.

Something that would draw me back: Competing on commons and uncommons: That's an insane amount of clicking..

There has been an error with counting cards It would appear that I missed 300+ cards that Riemstagrad stockpiled up due to some lucky pulls,

To correct for this 3 additional legs will be sent their way.

I can only win if I am to pull some legendary, and sell them.
when i cannot pull any legendary, or just 1, there is no way to win.
I believe that much is obvious.

. heum. when for like 4 days, 7 puppets out of 10 do not receive any packs. its very hard to get in the race.

LMAO! That one puppet had more UR cards than my entire collection! Do you need that legendary card back from me?
Do you have a record of the exact card counts? - it looks like some players have junked their cards already.

Congratulations Riemstagrad!

If you feel compelled to give it back sure send it to 9006 but all in all it was my mistake so it fully can be your boon, I expect nothing back.

As for card totals I seem to have closed that document with out saving it making it hard to access so no I don't have the numbers sorry!
