Rock, Paper, Scissors!

Sun Aug 5, 2012, 6:41 AM
Next game is set for 6:45 BST, 1hour and 15 minutes from now!

Becoming a tradition, almost, and first put forth by the awesome shuttermonkey, Tuesday August 7th will see many Rock, Paper, Scissors Tournaments in #devart throughout the day, where you are all invited to come along and hang out in #devart!

This is how it is going to work:

-> The first 16 deviants to post the secret word announced in the chatroom will be chosen to participate before each Tournament begins.

-> The game is similar to Rock, Paper, Scissors, but, as this is the internet, we will be using these emotes: :O, :P and :D in which...

:O beats :P, :P beats :D, and :D beats :O

-> Two deviants will battle each other out (a pair at a time) until one deviant moves on to the next round after winning 2 out of 3 rounds. If there is a tie, we will go for sudden death!
 
N.B. You will be disqualified if: a) At any point in the Tournament you do not answer to the call of your name. b) It appears you take a longer time to post. Any cheating will result in losing.

An example of gameplay!

<3wyl> Are you ready, Kaz-D and namenotrequired?
<namenotrequired> HECK YEAHS!
<Kaz-D> YES!
<3wyl> Rock
<3wyl> Paper
<3wyl> Scissors
<3wyl> Go!
<Kaz-D> :O
<namenotrequired> :P
<3wyl> Kaz-D is the winner of Round 1

The winner of the Tournament will get a 3 month Premium Membership.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask!

Don't forget to watch this space for more birthday events heading your way. :la:

when does this happen? just randomly throughout the day?

3wyl Featured By Owner Aug 7, 2012  Hobbyist Photographer
It happened randomly throughout the day, yes. I did three tournaments around the afternoon and one before the trivia. May do one after, but that may be pushing it at a stretch if the trivia is then too. ^^;

Did you know Windows was going to have a Rock Paper Scissors game (called Sissors [sic], Paper, Stone)? They abandoned it because they were working on Minesweeper.

What happens if each just waits until the other one posts, so they can see what they are going to say and then beat them?
Reply
:icon3wyl:
3wyl Featured By Owner Aug 7, 2012  Hobbyist Photographer
They won't do that. :nod:

Everyone must post after 'Go'. If they don't, then we repeat the round, or I disqualify them. :nod:

Man, all the way down under. :noes:

That's interesting, though!

It makes more sense for it to be Rock, just because it's shorter, like. :paranoid:

Is the idea to have it typed out before hand so that you can quickly send it after El says "Scissors"? :XD:

Hmm... I can't offer much information about that. I was thinking of hosting a game, maybe waiting an hour or two, then hosting another one, and so on throughout the day... day being BST day (GMT+1), five hours after EST, eight after PST.

If that makes sense? :O

what hour in BST (I live in EST so i can figure from there....)
