The Apprentice - Task #4

Post by DudeyDan » Fri Nov 04, 2011 6:14 am

To balance the teams I have moved sirmikeknight over to Everything Rhymes With Orange.

League of Extraordinary Gentlemen
- Mackinlee
- nines
- Matt Sin (PM)
- JSIMP

Everything Rhymes with Orange - Win
- Da Mayer (PM)
- Ed Philly
- KevIncredible
- sirmikeknight


This task will require you to design a new unique forum game for Stablewars. I know we have a few people who have created their own games so hopefully they will be useful on this task.

Things to consider:
- A good and original name for your game
- Type of game - Wrestling or role-playing?
- How is it going to stand out from other forum games?

The PM must PM a detailed description of your new game to me before Friday 11th November @ 11:59pm EST.

Choose your project managers within the next 48 hours. If you have been PM before you can be PM again, it's up to you.


I may add some more info later, just wanted to get this up.

League of Extraordinary Gentlemen
Spoiler!!! :
Name: SW World Cup

Type of game - Wrestling

Rules:

Pick 5 WWE wrestlers:
1 Striker - Main Eventer
1 Defender - Upper Midcarder
1 Goalkeeper - 1 Diva/Semi-Active
2 All Rounders - Upper/Lower Midcarders

The above categories (ie. main eventer) are based on the Stablewars game salaries/categories.

Scoring:
- All scoring is based on wins (from televised events) within a given week.
- Scores are added to your total each week.
- Every two weeks the 2 players with the lowest score are eliminated until there are only 5 players remaining
- Following that, the player with the lowest score is eliminated every two weeks.
- You stay will your 5 wrestlers for the whole game but you can trade one of your wrestlers to the bank for another one (within the same category ie. main eventer for main eventer)
Example:

nines' picks:
1 Striker - John Cena
1 Defender - Kofi Kingston
1 Goalkeeper - Beth Phoenix
2 All Rounders - Jack Swagger, Dolph Ziggler

Mackinlee's picks:
1 Striker - Randy Orton
1 Defender - Miz
1 Goalkeeper - Kelly Kelly
2 All Rounders - Jack Swagger, Zack Ryder

Week 1 wins:
John Cena
Randy Orton
Kelly Kelly
Dolph Ziggler
Miz
R-Truth
Kane
Zack Ryder
Big Show
Mark Henry

Week 1 Standings:
Mackinlee - 4 points
nines - 2 points
Why does it stand out from the crowd?

This game is an attempt to merger the styling and positions of football/soccer into the world of wrestling. As each player on a team has their role so do the wrestlers in WWE (their roles on the show). Not many of the existing games have tried to attempt this type of merger and we feel it provides an interesting take on forum games.
---------------------------------------------------

Everything Rhymes with Orange
Spoiler!!! :
Game Name: Top Manager

Rules:
- Create a team of 5 random wrestlers. There will be no trades, and no team adjustments
- Each week 1 wrestler is nominated to represent your team
- Must have a diva on team.
- RAW, SD! & PPV's will count.
- Must have all Superstars go before choosing them again.
- Lowest ranked superstar for that week will force whoever chose them to lose 1 member of their "faction/stable". If ties occur, those superstars still lose and the "managers" will still need to lose a member.

Game play:
*Win = 5pts, Lose = -3pts, NM (at all for the week)= -1pt, Promo = 1pt

MVH - Barrett, Henry, Orton, Ryder, HHH
Dan - Kane, Big Show, Miz, Ziggler, Eve
Ed - R-Truth, HHH, Kane, Barrett, Beth
Kev - Bourne, Christian, Kingston, HHH, Eve
SMK - Christian, Nash, Punk, Cena, ADR
Me - Clay, Barrett, Rhodes, Cara, Natalya


So if MVH, Ed & I chose Barrett, and Kev, Dan & SMK chose Christian.

RAW
Christian Promo - 1pt
Barret def. Ryder - 5pts

NXT
N/A

Superstars
Christian & Barrett def. Air Boom = 5pts each

SD!
Sin Cara def. Christian - -3pts
Barrett Promo - 1pt

MVH = 11pts
Ed = 11pts
Me = 11pts
Kev = 3pts
SMK = 3pts
Dan = 3pts

Therefore, since Christian was the lowest scoring superstar this week...Dan, Kev & Christian must select one superstar to eliminate and then submit a new pick.

Dan eliminates Christian, Kev chose Eve & SMK eliminated Nash.


MVH - Barrett, Henry, Orton, Ryder, HHH
Dan - Kane, Big Show, Miz, Ziggler, Christian
Ed - R-Truth, HHH, Kane, Barrett, Beth
Kev - Bourne, Christian, Kingston, HHH, Eve
SMK - Christian, Nash, Punk, Cena, ADR
Me - Clay, Barrett, Rhodes, Cara, Natalya
New Week:
Dan - Miz
MVH - HHH
Ed - Beth
Kev - HHH
SMK - ADR
Me - Clay

It goes to whoever is last standing, if a tiebreaker occurs (Ex: Me & MVH are the last two with Barrett only) then we will have to select a Group of 5 again and they will all count that week. Whoever has the lowest score, loses.

Description: Play the role as a WWE manager, creating a stable of 5 wrestlers. Compete your roster against other managers, putting up one of your wrestlers to represent your stable each week. If they perform well, your team remains dominant, but if your wrestler is defeated by the other stables, you must eliminate one of your own. Can your team out last the rest? Who will be the Top Manager?

How it stands out from other games: How it stands out from other games is that you are in control of your team and you decide who stays and who goes as you play the role of a WWE Manager...However, you will be competing against other managers for the "Manager of the Year Award" (Basically the win of that perspective season). We can find out who can figure out a smart way to stay on top of things and who will be outsmarted.

While I review both teams' submissions, I have a few questions.

Matt Sin, how did you utilise your team on this task? Who performed well on this task?

JSIMP, are you happy with your team's submission? What do you think of the other team's game?

Mackinlee, what did you contribute on this task? Did your team have any other game ideas?

nines, what did you think of Matt Sin's performance as PM? What did you contribute on this task?

---

Da Mayer, how did you utilise your team on this task? Are you happy with your team's game? Did you have any other game ideas?

Ed Philly, what do you think of the other team's game? What did you think of Da Mayer's performance as PM?

I helped a little with some of the rule tweaks. Da Mayer and Ed Philly did most of the work here. I didn't do much because I moved this week and I still don't have Internet. I tried to do what I could with the time I had. I still think the game turned out great and if Da Mayer actually wanted to run this game I would help out.

I gave little tid-bits here and there, directed it into the right direction. We were pretty much set on the Soccer style game; at first we thought it might have been a role playing game, but we liked and decided to make it just a game.

Everyone on the team besides myself performed excellent on this task. I feel like they picked up my slack where I picked up theirs on previous tasks. I thought they all did excellent since I don't know jack about the SW games.

I'm very happy with the teams submissions, think it's pretty cool.

I'm as happy as I can be about our team's submission. The other team's game honestly ended up confusing me.

1) The rules seem fairly simple, I'm sure several people would sign up. I dislike the relation to soccer, seems like a ploy to appeal to Mr. DudeyDan.

2) Da Mayer's performance was fair. He was very clear with what he wanted, did a good amount of work, and followed up on deadlines. Personally, I would've liked more brainstorming over the original game concept, but besides that I have no complaints.

- We were very ahead of schedule as we had many idea's thrown out on the table the very first day. We've decided about making it a wrestling game as a team, and from there, I had a few idea's thrown out myself but Ed had made an excellent post and we tweaked some of the rules, came up with the scoring, and I did not tell everyone what their job was as I first had a sign-up sheet, and when the spots were filled, we had either 2 or 3 people working on each thing I asked to be completed.

- I am very happy with the game my team and I have created. Very well performed and we were kept focused.

- The only other game we would of made, if not for this one we submitted, would of been King of the Ring.

I engaged our team to start throwing out ideas so we had a good list to pick from and perhaps mix some ideas up. Thankfully, one of the first ones that came up was something we all thought was awesome so we ran with it.

nines came up with the idea/rules and we really just expanded and cleaned it up from there.
