This is it! Coming down to the wire people...

RPG Superstar 2013 Top 32, RPG Superstar 2012 Top 16 , Dedicated Voter Season 6, Star Voter Season 7, Star Voter Season 8, Star Voter Season 9 aka Hodge Podge

Right down to the wire... (Appropriate? xD)

Star Voter Season 8

THIS is more appropriate!

Since we are counting Down! When do we find out who is in the Top 100? I figured this would be the best place to ask that question.

30 minutes and Champion continues to elude me. Guess I shouldn't have taken off those holidays and sick days after all. :-)

Haha, that was my first thought, but I thought I'd go more unexpected. :p

You would need to have spent a minimum of 3.48 DAYS worth of 1-minute countdown timers on the voting page to hit Champion.

I've given up on it as well =(

Yeah, you'd have to be some kind of mutant to get Champion. Right Feros?

*Ahem*

Alright, how did I do it? 250 - 300 votes a day amounts to 5 to 6 hours. Spread that out over the roughly 16 hours a day in which a person is active isn't terribly hard if you have few distractions. Obviously people with jobs that require them to be doing other things or family obligations will lower this as well. Drop it to 200 votes and you're talking 4 hours.

At 250 votes a day, four days to Marathon and twenty days to Champion (about what it took me). At 200 votes a day, five days to Marathon and twenty-five days to Champion. Total days of voting: 26 days.

And I didn't do this in huge blocks. I would work at it for 100 votes (roughly 2 hours) before taking extended breaks. If you do that you find your tolerance for repetition increases.

It's Marathon for a reason. Trying to sprint through it will just kill you.

I would open 100 tabs at a time them vote for the same item 100 times.

100 votes every minute! 10 minutes to Marathon!

(I didnt really do this)

Doesn't work. Each tab would show the same pairing with the same timer.

I only know this by accident, of course.

I think what he was saying open 100 tabs, wait the timer out then vote 100 times on the same pair.

So! Now that we are here another, far more important countdown begins:

The countdown to the Top 32 reveal!

Seven days remain in Round 1, so let's get started:

7!

Dedicated Voter Season 8

2 people marked this as a favorite.

So next countdown is 7 days to the reveal, yes/no?

Star Voter Season 6, Star Voter Season 7, Star Voter Season 8, Star Voter Season 9

Sadly, I didn't even get to Dedicated Voter this year -- taking off the Christmas to New Years stretch did my daily count in, and getting over 250 in the past 3 days didn't make up the difference :( That's alright, on two Round 2!

Anyone have nightmares last night that their item came up in the last pairing and the timer not hitting zero before voting stopped?

I had a nightmare last night, about openly talking about my item and getting it DQ'd... I've been paranoidly combing my usual hang outs here for me talking about things to see if I've DQ'd myself.

It's never been an official part of the contest. A judge or host has released the list that made it above 89 or 100 in the past two year. If they do that again it won't be until after the Top 32 are announced, they have always wanted us to focus on that before focus on the almost made its and the critic threads. Also, they list it in ABC order so know one knows what the actually ranking of the items. It just provides us a clue as to what the most popular items in the vote were. Remember the top 32 come from that list, the no 1 voted items is not guaranteed to make it on to round two if the Judges don't see the MoJo.

DEATH BY SNOO-SNOO!!!!

I chose chocolate, because death by chocolate means I can't live to enjoy more chocolate.

ETA: On a more actual Superstar related issue, come to think of it, I think this is why I tend not to upvote death related items (unless they're just obviously the better of the pair, like the other item is just a mess of formatting and bad mechanics and unoriginal ideas)... I've seen many items, this Superstar and prior, where the trigger for the item's ability (or most original ability) is either the owner's death or the death of someone killed by the owner. While we like our PCs and don't want them to die, I don't want to plan on my PCs' death either---and would rather own cool magic items that help protect them/fight so they don't get TO the point of actually dying. Likewise, managing to kill a creature can actually be pretty circumstantial (if you're playing in a party, hard to predict who's going to always get the killing blow), and it can discourage good teamplay (the player whose PC has the cool item activates on killed creature death is always insisting on getting all the kills in the party---or on killing a creature, even, that the other PCs may want to leave alive). On a meta perspective, I can tell that the item is designed by a player who is used to lethal campaigns and is designing for him/herself, thinking like a player, not thinking like a designer who is trying to come up with something usable in a variety of campaigns (not all campaigns are lethal, some not even for the enemies involved---frex, an intrigue based urban campaign may have little fighting or the PCs may want to leave their enemies alive to interrogate them, arrest them, etc.).

Some "on creature death" items might make sense for an NPC to have (a soul trap item could even contain the soul of a person the PCs are trying to save). But they've got to be well designed so they're story-useful.

Sorry this particular thought is probably better for another thread but it's here because of chocolate.
