THE HISTORY OF KINGDOM EARTH


In history's the years dated OS (Old School) A preacher and his wife came together with a plan to unite all the war kingdoms of Luxtopia under one rule. Preacherman and MissChaos called upon Berthe the goddess of the Earth to aid them in their journey. The all mighty goddess arose from the Earth with a warrior to help guide their way. From that day the warrior who has come to be known as SnyperEye has lead the fight for unity and conquest alongside with other followers of Berthe. It was not managed at first as some soldiers suddenly vanished without a trace during the first year of battles. *Manimal and Black Pope of other Kingdoms defected against their own to join kingdom earth's battle to victory and with their help Kingdom Earth succeeded by the end of 2nd years of battle. Alas a new presence in the form of -NN-Grim may have compromised the kingdom with a hidden omen. Both Preacherman and MissChaos became ill and could no longer fight the battles of old any longer and Kingdom Earth lead by SnyperEye slowly lost control of their hold as followers and soldiers alike once again started to vanish. SnyperEye turned to his remaining generals *Manimal and PJB in hopes to regain their control of Luxtopia in this on going battle.

can we get the profanity ruled right, or at least clear for everyone this year, as, last yr and before, there was quite a "grey area" about this. I will list my worries, or queries below......;

I can understand using profanity directed towards one another is strctly not on.....eg, you fkin bastard, rot in hell you effin bloody wanker, why the fuk did u hit my effin castle? etc. etc

However, what is the ruling on using profanity towards yourself. eg, you go for a kill and you miss by 2, and you type "FUCK!.......SHIT, fuck my dice!" is this also considered to be deducting points off yourself?

To go further, what is the ruling on using profanity, but not actually spelling the word correctly........eg, is effing hell allowed, or is that considered to be "fucking hell"? can you type shite, and get away with it instead of writing shit?........can you type Fcku......or would that be considered as profanity?

Dollabillz makes a good point, because i know there was quite a debate about this last yr, but i really do not think we actually found common ground, so if Snyper-Eye could clarify this, it would be appreciated. I know above, he has typed NO PROFANITY, but gee, i know i swore last yr, and did not get penalised for it, so, a clear unbderstanding before the tourney got under way, would be very cool

As to the players playing in the tourney, do we get to "draft" anyone we like into our team, or is there going to be a "draft process" once we have the numbers of peeps willing to play......in a pool, and each team chooses then??

If the answer is the latter and not the former, i would like to propose that BANE receive 1st draft pick, since they finished last in the tourney of 2010.......each team would then get their pick (if their team is not full) based on the least successful to the most successful teams, meaning last yr's winners would receive the last pick in the draft, since they were so damn good last year....

I've gotta agree with Mazza. A straight forward, professional sports league style draft sounds like a good idea. Simple, transparent, easy to understand, and a good way of rebalancing the strength of all teams, especially when based on last year's results. Seems like the fairest way of bringing new players into the mix, IMHO. Besides, let's be honest about Bane: Those miserable bastards are gonna need all the help they can get!

Depending on if Bane wants to win or not, I could be a first round pick.

I got penalized every time I uttered a swear under any circumstance last year..

To be more precise, about 10 people in chat would shout "penalty!" if I did.

ABSOLUTELY NO SWEARING!

There is no grey area, This is not a tournament where we figure out how many diffrent ways we can say FUCK, SHIT, ASSHOLE ETC... If you think its gonna cost you a point don't say it! For those of you who are "Swear Happy" Say it out your mouth and not through your fingers and you wont have to worry.

I penalized 6 people last year to the fullest on this rule and plan to do the same again this year. I do thank those members who have respected my wishes of a negative-free atmosphere and I will continue to make sure you can compete in one.

RE: DRAFT

Current members have the ability to change kingdoms now through Dec 15th where seats become permanent.

The draft still will be a first come/first selected process as its always been. (SO DONT DELAY ON THE REGISTRATION PROCESS, COC ETC...)

Team selection was eliminated last year and replaced with a bid process. I will be using the same process again this year. 100 bids are given to each kingdom to use to draft a player during the draft.

But how does that work? It didn't make any sense last year. Or maybe I'm too dumb to figure it out. Example: Say two teams both have one opening. They both bid 100 on the same player. Which team gets the chosen player? How do you decide what player the other team gets? Also, are teams with more than one opening at a disadvantage, compared to teams with only one, 'cause they're more likely to split their bid across multiple draftees?

How I went about it last year was this order in the event of a tied-Bid

1st step: Team with fewer players wins the bid
2nd step: Team with lower placement from previous year wins bid

The bid process went smooth last year and I didnt have to use this and hopefully I wont again this year.

Only time a team gets stuck with someone they may not want...is if all teams bid zero on a person.

I believe this is what you are inquiring?

Yeah, I guess so. Maybe I'd recommend flipping those two steps though, 'cause a lower ranked team probably needs more help. I dunno. Seems chaotic compared to a standard draft. But then again, I'm not a captain, just a mere recruit, and the bidding details aren't my problem. So I'll hush now, and go wherever I'm told to go in the end.
