    Welcome to Day Six! On Day Five the Mod Tribe failed to complete the challenge and therefore they had to vote out not one but two players. They were doing so well, then they had to **** up royally and do something that completely destroyed their advantage and put the tribes on even footing. What a pity....except for the Members.

    One of the voted out players was Immortalfire. The greatest man this game has ever known (save TEDDY, but that doesn't count because TEDDY is more than just a man, he is something else entirely....a legend). Anyone, I hate all of you for voting out IF. Go to hell. Even the Members tribe. I know you all played a role in this too! It was a conspiracy, I tells ya! :argh:

    Anyway....

    THE RULES:

    The Game

    Hype! Survivor is a game of strategy, deception, and skill. Alliances are both permitted and encouraged. Make no allies or make many allies, it's all up to you. There are many different ways to win this game. Masterminding, forethought, and hard work are the keys to success. Laziness and ineffective play will both be exposed and punished. Although being lazy may be a strategy, not participating at all is not. If the players and hosts feel at any time that a certain player is no longer participating, they can be removed from the game without warning.

    As a side note: alliances can be with any of the players. It doesn't matter who they are nor what tribe they're on, just make sure it's someone you trust...or not. Keep your friends close, and your enemies closer!

    Challenges

    Each tribe (or individual) will receive an immunity challenge for each game “day.” Instructions for challenges will be explained for each challenge. Some challenges may require judging, some may be trivia, some may be skill. Expect a variety for your playing pleasure. The tribe (or person) who does the best, wins immunity and is therefore safe from elimination that round.

    Tribal Council

    During the team portion of the game, the tribe who performed best at the end of the 'immunity challenge' (or round) wins immunity. The losing tribes will then go to “Tribal Council” and vote to eliminate 1 player from the game. They will be able to eliminate ANYONE from one of the losing tribe of the immunity challenge. Only the losing tribe gets to vote. The player with the MOST VOTES is removed from the game.

    In the case of a tie at tribal council, there will be a tie-breaker challenge between the players with the most votes. The winner of the tie-breaker will determine who stays. During the solo portion of the game a tie-breaker challenge will also be used. The player who does the best on the tie-breaker will be allowed to stay, the other player will be eliminated.

    In order to have your votes counted, please send them to both Matt and Hunter Rider. Please do NOT send your votes in to any other name. You will only have one chance to vote. There will be no changing your vote once your vote is cast. Vote carefully! If you do not send in a vote in the given time frame, IT WILL COUNT AGAINST YOU. Meaning, it will be a vote for yourself.

    Hosts

    Your hosts have gone to great lengths to ensure fairness. Merges, shuffles, and so on have been set in place. Only the hosts will know about these days in advance. There will be additional twists and turns throughout the game, so do not get too cozy.

    At times, individual judgment calls will need to be made. We understand that players will not always see eye-to-eye with hosts. HOWEVER, the hosts word is final. There will be no negotiating hard and fast rules, but all cases will be fairly heard. Rest assured, hosts will be fair and neutral at all times and work with one another to come up with optimal solutions to your problems.

    Furthermore, there are additional rules (for the host's eyes only). These have been set in place to help us with matters that may or may not arise. Please consult hosts before assuming anything. They may be able to help you out if you have a question.

    Jury

    The final Jury will be composed of seven people (everyone voted off from the remaining nine players who didn't make the finals). The Jury will then vote FOR WHO THEY THINK SHOULD WIN of the final two remaining players so we can crown the winner of the Hype! Survivor.

    Cheating

    A note on cheating: It's very easy to cheat in this game. Very, very easy. Some of the rounds will be much more difficult to cheat at than others (some will be downright impossible to cheat on). Regardless, hosts have ways of catching you and sometimes will even set up traps for you. If you feel you have to cheat, by all means, go ahead. But, if you're caught, you WILL be penalized. Again, specific rules of what's legal or not will be in each challenge PM.

    One thing that is certainly NOT lawful under any circumstances is sharing usernames. Hosts have the ability to check IPs, and if you are caught sharing usernames then a severe penalty will be handed out. Please be mindful of only using your OWN username for this game.

    Team Forum

    During the team portion of the game, all tribes will have their own subforum. This is where they can brainstorm on all challenges and leave notes for the rest of their team. Each of these will require a password to use. The password will be changed every time someone is eliminated from your tribe. Each team member will be given the password to their own forum. However, these is no rule against sharing passwords with other teams. That is a legitimate strategy, and all players should be weary of it.

    Team Captain

    A team captain will be chosen before the start of each new challenge. The team captain is responsible for submitting challenge answers or tasks. If they cannot do so during that time frame, they must post who will do so in their team forum or by sending a pm to BOTH hosts.

    Moderators

    I know mods have certain abilities they can't turn off. But, do not use mod powers to your advantage. This includes using the washroom, IP tracking, etc. Ask me to do all that stuff. Abuse of mod powers will be punished.

    Misc.

    Whilst these rules are set as the guidelines for this game, each challenge will set the rules for that specific day. What may be cheating one day, may not be another day. Reading is fundamental. Make sure you familiarize yourself with this information, and those in the challenges as well. Please note that at times an announcement might be needed to amend the existing rules of this game, or the rules in the challenge. Please look for these and note them. Each day is marked by a new challenge.

    And though it pains me to post this grid, void of IF....I have no choice. :(

    Anyway, I've decided to punish all of you for voting out my favoritest player. Well, no, that isn't the reason I'm doing this. It was planned well before last night's tribal council, but it seems like as good of a reason as any, so I'm blaming all of you for it so you do not ***** at me....

    BOTH TRIBES WILL BE COMPETING FOR INDIVIDUAL IMMUNITY TODAY AND BOTH TRIBES WILL BE VOTING OUT AT LEAST ONE PLAYER!

    That's right, I said at least...

    ONE OF THE TWO TRIBES WILL BE VOTING OUT TWO PLAYERS!

    Here is how this will work....you will be competing individually for immunity. Only one immunity will be rewarded. The player with the highest score in the immunity challenge wins not only immunity, but also assures that his tribe only votes out one player. The other tribe will vote out two.

    Today's challenge will be a fun one. I wasn't planning to use this until later in the game, but I figure after yesterday's drama we could use a lighter, more fun challenge. PMs will be sent shortly.

    Gotta say, all the ******** of the last challenge was worth it to see Matt get pissed-off. Good stuff.

    :argh:

    Official announcement:

    I will accept two submissions per player this challenge. Only your highest score will be counted toward the challenge, but if you feel like you may not have time tomorrow, submit tonight, then realize tomorrow you do have time and get a higher score, I will accept one mulligan.

    [​IMG]

    Not good enough to beat Byrd who remains in first....perhaps his teammate Spider-Man Luvr28 can....

    [​IMG]

    Nope. Byrd maintains the lead....

    If anyone can take Byrd down a notch, it is JewHob....

    [​IMG]

    Not only does JewHob put up a pitiful score...but he also uses Internet Explorer. You fail Jewhob. :oldrazz: :cwink:

    Next comes Spider-Fan for the mods....

    [​IMG]

    And with a score of 45,028 Spider-Fan takes the lead!

    But who is this looming over him? ComicChick....she beat him at Hype Survivor, can she beat him in an immunity challenge?

    [​IMG]

    Nope....:oldrazz:

    And our final entry, Kalel114....

    [​IMG]

    88,457....I would point out how impressive this is until you consider that Kal submitted a mulligan....

    [​IMG]

    109,457....now it just feels kinda pathetic rather than impressive. :( ;)


    With a score of 109,457...KALEL WINS INDIVIDUAL AND ENSURES THAT THE MOD TRIBE VOTES OUT ONLY ONE PLAYER AT TODAY'S TRIBAL COUNCIL! Congrats to Kal. As for the rest of you, I am supremely disappointed. Tetris ability has a direct correlation to your value as human beings. All of you with the exception of Kal and maybe Sage suck at life. PMs will be sent to both tribes shortly.

    In my defense, I only had 30 minutes available all weekend to devote to this challenge and I've not played Tetris in years.

    But yeah, pitiful :(
