I don’t want to give details about things until we get to them, but I’ll say for most things, not just CaS, you should use the videos as a basis for your expectations.

Okay, I just wasn't sure if audience vote would work since around a third of the active ToO is playing.

Who am I? I'd rather not answer that question, the real question is, "Who are you?". Right now I am trying to think of something witty to put here.. I might not find anything, but that's fine. This block of text should be fine for a signature. Wait, are you still reading this? Why are you reading this? Stop. Seriously.
STOP.
This sentence is true.
The sentence above is false.

I dare you not to read this.
Hey! I said not to read this.
Maybe if I talk like this.
Wait, you still see me? *sighs* I give up.

The character images are in alphabetical order (by character name), they mean nothing in the game context.

Okay, just wasn't sure because they weren't lined up straight.

So... everyone except JP has rolled now. Do we wait or proxy roll?

I don’t think they’re being impatient, they’re just eager and excited to keep going \:D/

Hehe.

Marvin. You can just take a chill pill. I couldn't be here to start even when I said I could play, I apologize for that. Life got busy. If you don't like the fact that other people don't follow through, go live somewhere else until you can grasp that. ;)

Sorry, bookworm, life got busy. :P I would have liked to play. I did see those PMs but never really could respond to them.

Everybody else, carry on.

Explanation of the previous contest’s rolls:
In the first round if you rolled a 5 or 6 it meant you fell off the bar and lost.
In the next round if you rolled a 1 or 2 it meant you fell off the bar and lost.
Subsequent rounds continued alternating between the two.

I don't think it's exactly fair that I got eliminated because I rolled first. The others may have ended up rolling 5s or 6s too.

I thought of that, but that was how I've been doing it since the rounds started being cut off instead of playing all the way through everyone. I probably would have come up with a different way toward the end, if it had mattered. Winning this particular contest doesn’t eliminate you, so I just left it.

Still, I think the others should roll, and we should keep going until only one person is eliminated. It just seems fairer. :shrugs:

It does for this final roll, but what about the others that were dropped because of this? Was it any less fair to cut them early just because we weren’t at the final elimination yet?
