I feel like if I commented on any of these, I'd be giving away where they're going to be placing in the contest.
I will say, I thought Azbaz's story was going to be boring as shit since well it's Robin fucking Hood and I've heard the story several times already, however the path I picked was way better than I expected.
Nothing like beating the shit out of a shop keep, stealing his bow and then burning the place down.
You spelled both my name AND game wrong. Smh.
Steve was shooting for the top, and as much as I want to say that he's a failure of an irishmen with no hope for success, not that he isn't in other areas, but his story now looks like the top competitor for first...
...which makes my story being rated higher than his even better. Get wrecked @Steve24833 Hopefully this will transfer over to the judging, but in the mean time, I'll get to reading the rest of these.
This was not at all an excuse to post while my name is bolded AND red
Oh, we're doing this? Fuck me, they're not even finished judging, and you're trying to scuttle out of your loss already? So be it. Anyhow, the rating system is fucked as most people are idiots. That's obvious, as one of my very worst games, Achilles, is rated like second best amongst what I've written. We clearly entered this contest as competition, so we'll just have to wait to see who wins.
It is done. Sent my ratings in.
Kept going back and forth on a lot of the top ones since the best ones were really good.
Went ahead and featured Steve and Ebon's stories. Was planning to do it after the results, but figured might as well do it now.
Many thanks. This was a fantastic thing to wake up to, and 1 of my goals are from the beginning of this contest are finally completed. The other two rest upon the results...
Edit: If I manage to snag first place from Steve, then I will also have gone from my measly 100 points to 500.
Oh, and congrats to Steve as well.
Congratulations Steve and Ebon! Does anybody know if there's ever been another member besides EM or Steve with 5 featured storygames authored or co-authored simultaneously? I'm not that aware of CYS's past with regards to previously featured games, and I love knowing stats like this.
I should get around to finishing my WIP soon.
I think JJJ probably did. Besides Midnight Sun, all his remaining stories except for one were all previously featured and when he was around featured stories didn't get changed quite as much so pretty sure he had five simultaneously at one time.
Oh, that makes sense. I didn't think of 3J (probably because he's still gone). Thanks.
I don't have his trophy... yet! :)
Oh yeah, I never responded with gloating to this. Yeah, I'm pretty amazing. I've also had the top story of the year every year I've been here.
Probably the first time someone has written "This story sucks" in their own description and it actually doesn't suck.
I'll probably be reading most of them over the weekends when there are fewer children padding about.
@Bucky Would you be so kind as to give us a day estimate? Like will the results be up tomorrow, or Saturday...?
