    My top 5 are

    Guo Jing and Huang Rong
    Duan Yu and Wang Yu Yan (just simply because they look so good as one)
    Xiao Yu Er and Su Ying
    Yuan Zhengchi and Xie Qing Qing
    Ye Kai and Ding Linglin

    3) 5 couples left start minus 4 plus 4
    4) Start with 20 points
    What do you think?
    Start with only 10 points. That has been a Survivor tradition. Don't change it too much.

    Plus X, minus X will not work. Later on, it has to be +1/-X. That way we can get rid of the couples real fast.

    Having 38 couples like the other game is way too much. I would hope we start out at most at 20-25 couples or so.

    We also have to settle on how to do the max thing. I think Gugu mentioned, how can she vote +1/-3 when there is no one from the max she wants to take points off of.

    Plus, do we have a volunteer to make sure everything is correct. Every game is so hectic at times, it took me so long to edit the scores in the other game sometimes, and not like each time I get it right. Many people forget to check that they voted just after someone else did. I found myself busy checking scores that I was unable to participate in the game at times.

    Another thing. You must tell everyone when the game starts. Leave a message in the first post. The game will start in one week. Set your time table. "sort of deal"

    Wu couple, nah.

    Hu couple, I see them getting a fair shot at it.

    So I second the Hu couple.

    Xuzhu and Dream Girl
    Sun Xiaohong + Li Xunhuan
    Xiao Yu Er and Su Ying
    Hua Wu Que and Tie Xin Lan
    Ding Peng and Qingqing
    YCZ and HQQ is my favorite couple all time in JY, so no way do you take them out.

    Xiao Yu Er and Su Ying. WTH man? Is it just me, but why are my favorite couples not liked by others. First HQQ and TCZ and now XYE and SY. KEEP THEM BOTH!!!

    Either that, just get rid of GL couples altogether. Sadly in the other game, no one knew who BFF and SL were, yet they were rid of. So if you exclude XYE and SY, you must exclude all non GL couples then.

    Not necessarily "not liked," just indifferent.

    Understand that I was simply recommending for the opt-::-out of some lesser known candidates based on what I suspect/envision to be the less supported candidates. By asking fans to speak up when they want to keep, I was trying to ensure that everyone had a voice in the process.

    Well then, yeah, keep HQQ and YCZ as well as XYE and SY.

    Look, I think it's impossible to please everyone. It's way too complicated if we have a sort of elimination before the actual game. Just get rid of the more minor couples and leave the main ones, like Yang Guo and XLN, etc.

    As for Gu Long couples, I think a lot less people know Gu Long couples than Jin Yong couples, so that could work in their favour (less points off) or against them (less support).

    I'm already predicting Huang Rong and Guo Jing will win this. They're obviously the most popular couple, and there's a significantly less amount of people against them. The Condor trilogy is the most popular on this forum, and 2 out of the 3 main couples are likely to be eliminated. Yang Guo and Xiaolongnv have the XLN dislikers, Zhang Wuji and Zhao Min are going to have to deal with the anti-ZM. I'd say either GJ/HR or LHC/RYY will win.

    I have 'dislikers'? .... I didn't know that!

    I don't think Gu Long couples should be in this game. I for one am not familiar with many of the Gu Long stories. I say we just stick to JY's main and secondary couples. It'll be faster and just keep the votes to -1/+1 and for the last 10 minutes of the game we do the maniac mode that we did for the almost couple.

    Please start the game soon so that I can participate before 999 posts.

    Felix and I would. There are only a few Gu Long couples on the list, and they are the significant ones. I think we should let them compete.

    Anyway, the list looks good to me!

In that case, LHC/RYY and AZ/XF have a good chance.

    We also have to settle on how to do the max thing. I think Gugu mentioned, how can she vote +1/-3 when there is no one from the max she wants to take points off of.
    I think if all of your favorite candidates are at max score, then you should be a happy lad/lass, at which point your satisfaction no longer requires a vote.

    But, its not fun just sitting back and smiling. Even if our favorite couple is at max point, there might be someone on the list that we don't like and want to get rid of. BUT we can't give a (-) unless we give a (+). So I guess what I'm trying to say is that we should be able to vote (-) without giving a (+).. maybe after every 10 votes?

    PJ is right. The past Survivor games have shown that popular candidates seldom win. So far, HR has never win any Survivor game(s) she's in eventhough she's supposed to be the most popular wuxia heroine and doesn't have much dislikers.

    Also, Gu Long characters have done pretty well in Survivor games eventhough they are less known/talked about compared to JY characters.

    The rule was that after 7 non-voting turns, you can cast the same vote. So you can vote (-) twice in a roll provided there were 7 votes from other people in between.

    For your amusement, here are the past survivor game winners along with a look at who was the most popular. Indeed, the most popular candidate has only once won the game in the history of almost 10 survivor games:

    SWORDSMAN SURVIVAL - most popular: Yang Guo / Dugu Qiubai / Yan 13; winner: Ding Peng

    FEMME FETALE - most popular: Xiao Longnu / Huang Rong; winner: Ren Yingying

    STRONGEST WARRIORS - most popular: Xiao Feng; winner: Watar Matriarch

    THE GREATS - most popular: Dugu Qiubai / Yideng; winner: Dugu Qiubai / Xiao Feng / Ouyang Feng / Zhou Botong -- the actual winners of this game are thus far the best match up for the expected winners.

    KUNG FU SURVIVOR - most popular: Dragon Elephant Prana / 6MSJ / XL18Z; winner: 9 Yin

    MYSTERIOUS PERSONALITY - most popular: stats not available, my guess is Murong Longcheng; winner: SWORD GOD Zhuo Bufan

    ALMOST COUPLES - most popular: stats not available yet, but my guess is Zhu'er and Zhang Wuji. Winner: Lin Chaoying and Wang Chongyang

    There were 3 additional survivor games that were never completed, and thus no winner was determined.
