SCALPHUNT - 22/12/08 - 02/01/09

Imagine someone who hates you with the utmost intensity, grabbing the top of your cranium while you're lying prostrate and helpless, then scraping the dull edge of a battle blade around your kneck with a saw like motion, and let your imagination grasp, if you can hunters, the effect of a strong quick jerk on the top of your skull, to release any clinging particles, would have on your nervous system. You'll have some idea how it feels to be scalped.


The Basic Premise

This is an old game, Players sign up to take part, everyone whose signed up's teams are targets, who ever can land the finishing blow on the most targets, and thus Scalp them, is the winner

Provisional Rules

Starting Mission# - http://www.seibertron.com/heavymetalwar ... _id=267467
Ending Mission# - TBA (~02.01.09 23:59GMT)

only scalps in missions count.

Collecting Scalps - your TF must land a Blow which results in the stasis locking of a fellow contending Players TF, you must post a link with the time stamp of who stasis locks whom. unposted scalps do not count

If you scalp the same TF multiple times you may claim it multiple times

if you scalp multiple TFs in a single mission, you can claim once for each TF scalped in that mission

you cannot scalp the same TF twice in a single mission

You cannot scalp yourself.

Hunting parties
hunting parties may be made up of up to 3 commanders

Hunting parties must be announced prior to the start of the hunt(with a name)

Hunting parties may be cross factional

you cannont scalp memebers of your own hunting parties

parties will be treated exactly as if they where a single entity, so while the 3-man team will likely score 3 times as much as a single player, they're liable to be scalped in turn three times as much, with the penalty that they'll also have up to 24 less targets

scalps collected against you (i.e. a contending player has stasis locked one of your bots) should not be posted, it's up to the player to claim them, whether you remind them or not is up to you

Scoring

I will Post a Scoreing thread at the start of the tournie, please edit ONE post to contain all of your scalp claims, and keep spamming to the minimum

From the scores each player/team/faction will have there scalp ratio calculated, this is simply the number of scalps they have divided by the number of times thay have been scalped.


Winning
the winner will be the Player/faction/team with the highest scalping ratio over the period of the hunt, and shall earn the title of Scalpmaster. The worst scoring player shall be mocked for being Bald. I'll prolly hand out prize sigs based of the above LSD art

and we have campaign badges & ribbons for the ranked player/team;

the current Scalpmaster is Hoistimus

I'm in either way. My thinking in the noobs vs vets is that it could kinda be used to bury the hatchet so to speak. But I can see how that could escalate into a flamefest.

How about pair up n00bs and vets? A team must consist of at least one of each. That way it promotes teamwork between them.

There will be no n00b/pro teamups, and even if there were they would have to be cross-factional.

Cross-factional would be fun, but you'd have to ensure that everyone was partnered up first or it gives the teamed up players too big an advantage.

Think we can manage that?
