    Just want to say, the game was the most fun I had in my nearly 4 years with this forum. It was a good bonding experience with forum members. RECAP: The 30 minutes or so before I yelled TIME OUT last night was CRAZY. Players were bombarding with their votes, and every minute we would see 3 votes coming! I remember that after I would vote, 2 more votes had already come before me, and all of our scores would be off. By the time I went to get the correct score starting from 20 posts ago, another 2 votes with the incorrect score were already posted! It was impossible to keep up. Then I yelled TIME OUT and the server crashed about that time. When we came back, we had a huge discrepency about Xie Xiao Feng's score that spanned about 30 minutes. Every time somebody came up with a tally for him, another person came up with a different score! In conclusion, I'm glad we finally reached the last man standing

    Everyone: PLEASE CONTRIBUTE IDEAS/THEMES FOR THE NEXT NEW GAME.

    Yes, last night was intense, spcnet server was down on several occasions and the traffic was nuts, but my sacrifice for lacking enough sleep last night and thus, doozing off at work was worth it. At least Ding Peng won of course, at the expense of Xie Xiao Feng since Jin Yong fans ganged up on XXF but somehow ignored Ding Peng :P

    May I suggest a similar game for Top Femme Fatale in Wuxia World ?

    The game was fun and exciting but I didn't get to play in the Grand Finals. What the hell...

    But I think the game wasn't that fair because there were JY and GL heroes. Their whole martial arts system is different so it's quite unfair to compare the characters' skills.

    Another thing is that there seemed to be more GL fans taking part in the game...

    Interesting theme. How about a list of possible candidates?

    So um, who won? It was hard to tell from the thread itself.

    To prevent multiple users from voting during the same interval we can affix an interval counter at the start of each vote. For example, if a round lasts one hour, it can be divided into 6 intervals. If it's round 2, the time is 10:35 PM and each interval lasts 5 minutes, then, you'd put something like "2-3" at the start of your post. If others are voting at the same time, they'd have the same interval number. Whoever's post is ahead among posts with the same interval number will be counted, and the mod can go around and delete those that do not. This way any user will be able to tell which post they should base theirs on.

    It needn't be either or. A person can be both a GL and JY fan or neither. A Gu Long character won doesn't mean more GL fans are playing.

    Do u vote just base on which author created the character? You will autovote a character just because he/she is from a JY novel irregardless of what u think of his/her martial arts? If u think more GL fans are playing the game and GL fans will only vote for Gu Long characters, can u explain the high vote count of Dugu QiuBai throughout the game? Dugu came in 2nd with only a mere 4 votes behind Ding Peng.

    Ding Peng...blah. He's like the luckiest protagonist ever. Sure when he started out he met with some minor obstacle, but then everything just fell into his lap (such as women).

    I don't think most people picked sides over the author, more like they had their favorite person, or based it on who they thought was the best. You seem to be the one who is so focused over the JY/GL division.

    One could say that GL provided a larger supply of candidates, but then that's his style. Swordnerdism, as Candide would call it.

    If anything, there were more JY fans playing at the end, because the rate of attrition for the GL fighters were much greater. At one point, the combined scores of XXF and DP were 20-30 points more than DGQB and ZSF's, and yet it ended up being a very close call.

    That's strange. How is it I'm the only one who noticed it?

    But for future games I think mixing characters by different authors would be a bad idea.

    Because you are the only one who is doing that (voting characters base on authors).

    I don't side with author but I do think Gu Long's swordsmen are much much more powerful than Jin Yong's, especially the last round (somehow... surprise ? surprise ?) left us with only Jin Yong's shadow characters (WCY and DGQB) and a controversial myth (Z3F). If Sweeper Monk was in there, I'd sure pick him

    I tried not to. 'Cos I didn't know enough about many of the GL characters to vote for or against them.

    It seems like Ken Cheng has started up a fad (like the reality game fad and sms voting fad). Now there are 2 running Survivor games in the wuxia forum.
