If someone in the team doesn't designate a white card for you, you will be given a card randomly of those remaining.

Also let me just say, this deadline is at a terrible time for Americans.

This must be how non-Americans feel every Survivor game.

I mean I was hoping not to be on a team with a bumbling idiot but you know
Also we should do a version of this where the result becomes reality

The challenge post and the individual battle threads have two different win conditions, which one are we using?

The individual threads were correct, the challenge post has been edited to reflect that.

Can I object to the final tiebreaker? To me at least it would make far more sense for it to be the lowest character count, because in order to win without talking judges ears off you would actually need to have a strong argument.

I feel like anything that encourages less activity is generally bad.

Don't like the idea of turning things into a spamfest either, but is what it is.

In an ideal world, we just don't reach a second tiebreaker!

Yeah, and it probably won't, but rewarding people for fluff is just a huge pet peeve of mine.

And less characters doesn't mean less activity. If activity is an issue, then the judges would penalize them for that, which would be worse than having a better chance in a second tiebreaker.

I wake up at 8 to get to work by 9:15

The only time I wake up even close to that time is when the cats get hungry early, and even then it's "feed cats and go back to sleep"

All White Cards have been posted in your individual match-ups in the Private Threads section. Please look there for yours and your opponents choices. If you do not have access, please notify a mod ASAP.

Teams may now discuss which Black Cards to play. Please remember that each player within the match-up will play one Black Card on themselves. The player will also play one Black Card on each opponent's character. Once all 9 Black Cards have been posted in your individual match-up thread, the discussion between you three may begin on who will win the battle. If at 7:30pm EDT tonight any Black Cards have not yet been played, randomized card(s) will be played on your behalf. Please remember that once your Battle Discussion begins, you are no longer able to discuss your match-up with your teammates.

All discussion in your match-ups will close at 7:30pm EDT on Tuesday night. The threads will auto-lock at that point and judging will begin.
Sup, later.

For black cards, players may use any of the remaining 30 in their team's pool. Once a black card is posted in a match up it is no longer available to anyone else on the team. Please remember that once your match up begins, you cannot discuss yours further with any teammates.
Sup, later.

Please note that exact wording of Black Cards may make the difference to help you win the argument on who would win in a fight. As many players have only paraphrased their Black Card, please look at the OP in each match-up and click on the spoiler link to see the Official Black Card listing.
Sup, later.
