WRAP UP

Jeopardy had a great turnout with 13 total participants including a good mix of staff, trivia veterans and first timers! Unfortunately due the the crowd some users experienced lag, myself included. Sorry about the broken chart in the second round >.>; In the end I think everyone had fun.

Scores at the half:
1st: DNA :: 4600
2nd: Rhapsody :: 1800
3rd: Ace :: 1400
4th: GhostPony750 :: 800
5th: Serpentsounds: 400
6th (tie): Samurott, Dare234, ThomasTheCreeper :: 0
9th: DragoBoy :: -800
10th: twistedturtwig :: -800
11th: EvilPenguin :: -2000
12th: Krisp :: -2400
13th: James86134 :: -3400

Final Scores:
1st: DNA :: 6600 (first non-staff; wins +o in next game I host, claimed Rank Change Voucher)
2nd: Rhapsody :: 5000 (wins a Pony made of diamonds as soon as one is available)
3rd: Ace :: 3500 (second non-staff; passed on prizes)
4th: Serpentsounds :: 1
5th (tie): Samurott, Dare234 :: 0 (tied 3rd non-staff without buzzing at all. Dare234 played only half so Samurott got first choice of prize. Samurott claimed Name Change Voucher.)
7th (tie): DragoBoy, GhostPony750 :: -400
9th: EvilPenguin :: -1199
10th: ThomasTheCreeper :: -2000
11th (tie): Krisp, twistedturtwig :: -2800
13th: James86134 :: -10200

DNA won with Rhapsody and Ace performing very well. Seven people scored in the negatives and Samurott won third non-staff just lagging the whole time. I suspect the questions were too hard since doing nothing got you 5th place. EP and Rhapsody were ahead of DNA at times but EP got a lot of questions incorrect and DNA pulled ahead.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hey guys, I'll have a bit of free time in the coming weeks so I've decided to host another IRC game two weeks from now! More people wanted a Jeopardy this time, so Jeopardy it is!

Note that with Jeopardy essentially no typing skill is required; all that counts here is your knowledge of Pokemon. Additionally, there is no guarantee that DNA will dominate or even win. Everyone has a good chance to place for prizes!

Here is a wrap up of a Jeopardy I hosted last June.


GAME DETAILS (most content copied from tiger's posts)

Where/when?

In the #psypokejeopardy chat channel on KBFail's server (irc.kbfail.net).
Date and time is Friday, February 22, 2013 at 6:00:00 PM EST
I anticipate that the game will take 1 hour.

For using the java applet to access the chats: go here, click on the Java Applet link, and type /join #psypokejeopardy when you're connected.

How it works:

This Jeopardy works very similarly to normal Jeopardy. A clue is given, and after three seconds, people can buzz in. In order to do this, all you have to do is say "buzz" after the mode -m is set and hope that you entered it first. The buzzing process will be explained again at the beginning of Jeopardy.

After you buzz in, you will have eight seconds to answer. In order to answer, you must give the question to the clue (like normal Jeopardy). For example, one clue would be "this Pokemon is the first alphabetically," and its correct question (what you submit) would be "what is Abomasnow?". If you answer correctly you will earn the points equal to the value of the question. If you get the question wrong however, you do lose points. You will always be given the whole 8 seconds but I will only accept your first answer if you give more than one. You will be allowed to fix typos, though. If you need help, simply watch other people play for a bit and then join in.

Jeopardy also consists of the ability to choose the next question from multiple categories and point values. The person who correctly answered the previous question gets to do this. There are two rounds of six categories with five questions each, which adds up to 60 total questions. A round may end before all of the questions are chosen if it is taking too long.

It even consists of its own bonuses. One Daily Double in the first round and two in the second round can (as they suggest) double your points in the game. Before the clue is given, the participant who selected the clue will wager some or all of their points and earn double that amount if they answer correctly or lose the wagered amount if answered incorrectly. Only the person who selected the clue will be able to answer the question, and ten seconds will be given to answer.

Final Jeopardy concludes the event. One tough clue will be given and like for Daily Doubles, you can wager as many of your points as you want. For this question, thirty seconds are given for you to think over your answer while you imagine the Jeopardy Think music. After this, the final scores will be tallied and the winners will be announced.

All script commands will be explained during the event for those that need help.

Rules:

1. Do not use any colours or /me commands.
2. Do not argue if you thought that you buzzed in before someone else. The entire process is scripted, and it is based on what appears on my screen only.
3. Do not use any reference materials online OR offline (such as the site or a text file on your computer).
4. Answers MUST be given in a question format such as "What is Pikachu?". This will be taken loosely, but drastic mixups between "where" and "who" will be called incorrect. (Pokemon are considered as "what"s)
5. You must use your forum name to receive any prizes. Various exceptions are allowed, but ask first.
6. Do not change your nick during the event.

Prizes:

~Sponsored by Krisp~

1st place: Choice of prize from the list below and +o in the next game I host
2nd place: Choice of remaining prizes from list below
3rd place: Choice of remaining prizes from list below

Prize List
-----------
- Custom rank voucher
- Name change voucher
- Three Pokemon eggs of your choosing. Must be Pokemon that can legitimately hatch from eggs. Requests for Pokemon that cannot be hatched from eggs (e.g. legendaries) will be considered but no guarantees. Wifi trading on Gen V games only.

You can pass on the prizes of course, in which case the person who placed after you will get a larger list to choose from. If any prizes remain unclaimed after 3rd place has selected/passed, participants who placed lower will not be eligible to claim them. Custom rank is exciting because very few have been given out in recent history. In Samurott's case, if you win the Custom rank you can revert to a standard rank if you choose to do so. No inappropriate ranks or ranks that imply you are staff.

Questions:

Why should I go?
Because it's fun! Feel free to urge others to participate.

Are the questions Pokemon-related?
Most of them are.

What time is it in my time zone?

Corresponding UTC (GMT) Friday, February 22, 2013 at 23:00:00

Americas:
Los Angeles (U.S.A.) Friday, February 22, 2013 at 3:00:00 PM
Denver (U.S.A.) Friday, February 22, 2013 at 4:00:00 PM
Chicago (U.S.A.) Friday, February 22, 2013 at 5:00:00 PM
New York (U.S.A.) Friday, February 22, 2013 at 6:00:00 PM
Halifax (Canada) Friday, February 22, 2013 at 7:00:00 PM
Rio de Janeiro (Brazil) Friday, February 22, 2013 at 8:00:00 PM

Europe:
Dublin (Ireland) Friday, February 22, 2013 at 11:00:00 PM
Warsaw (Poland) Midnight between Friday, February 22, 2013 and Saturday, February 23, 2013
Athens (Greece) Saturday, February 23, 2013 at 1:00:00 AM

Asia/Oceania:
Jakarta (Indonesia) Saturday, February 23, 2013 at 6:00:00 AM
Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia) Saturday, February 23, 2013 at 7:00:00 AM
Sydney (Australia) Saturday, February 23, 2013 at 10:00:00 AM
Auckland (New Zealand) Saturday, February 23, 2013 at 12:00:00 Noon

Is there freezing?
I don't intend to do any freezing but I will have the ability to prevent participants from buzzing in if I feel the need to.

Does only "buzz" work for buzzing in?
Yes, so you better type it out first and wait for -m before pressing enter. Even missing a "z" or using colours would cause the script to skip over you.

What are the special commands that will be included?
!chart: Shows the chart to the person choosing the next question.
!q (category) (amount): Selects the next question.
!wager (amount): Allows an easier process for wagering in daily doubles.

Only the second and third commands will be mandatory. All will be brought up during the event.

Why can't I talk when I get in there?
This would be supposing that you're late and +m is set. This usually means that it is between questions. +m is a special mode to be set on chat channels that mutes people without special privileges (voice or op). These are only given to some staff, to people choosing/answering questions and to others who have won the status in previous games.

How will typos be dealt with?
If they are understandable, they will be acceptable. I will allow you to fix typos in the 8 second window you are given to answer your question.

What happens to rule-breakers?
Loss of 10000 points in the game, loss of all Psybucks on the offender's forum account, and permanent bans from #psypoke, #psypokejeopardy, the forums, the main site, and the internet forever. In other words, don't do it. :O


If you have any questions about joining or playing the game please post them here.

I have no knowledge of computers. My exams would be finished on all three days. I'll decide when It gets closer to the date. But I still have school. So Saturday is a definite. Friday is a maybe depending on the time.

So could I use the chat channels on an IPad. Or an old, slightly broken laggy laptop?

It's like this topic was constructed just for me <3

For Thursday, I can be around from 6-9pm EST, so that's enough time for the game regardless of when it starts.
For Friday, I'm around from 6 to 8.30pm EST, so if it starts at 8pm EST, I won't be able to attend.
As for Saturday I won't be able to play at all.

...But don't cater to me. If the best time for everyone works out to be Saturday, then so be it.

Dammit, DNA saw the thread! We're all dead! Make it Saturday!

Actually, Friday works best for me. But since I'm GMT+2, I'll have to be careful about the hours.

Oh, and DNA will win. It might not be fast typing, but still he probably knows more st00f than me... And most of us:(.

I did some quick research and you can use IRC on an IPad but you have to buy the apps. If you're using the old laptop to access these forums then you shouldn't have a problem getting on IRC. A bad internet connection may be a disadvantage but I suggest trying to get into the #psypoke chat channel ahead of time to test it out/see if you can do it.

@Charrygrove: Which apps. Also what exactly is IRC?
Now that I know I can use the IPad, I won't use the laptop, just cause its too much hassle getting it on. I have a good Internet connection (well, probably good enough).

So I just need to know which apps to download... Yay!

So I'm prob in if Saturday, maybe Sunday and Friday

IRC stands for Internet Relay Chat. It's a protocol for real time text chat over the internet.

Basically you use an IRC client (an application on your computer/IPad/smartphone/etc) to connect to an IRC server (in this case irc.kbfail.net) that hosts chat channels/rooms that you can join once connected (such as #psypoke or #psypokejeopardy). Alternatively you can use the Java Applet but I don't think that'll work on an IPad.

Colloquy, LimeChat and Linkinus are three IRC client apps I found for the IPad however none of them are free. It is conceivable that there are free IRC clients for the IPad. I don't own any Apple stuff so try searching for "IRC Client" in the App Store or ITunes or whatever.

Yay, jeopardy. I can actually get some points in this, unlike trivia.
Friday and Saturday should be good for me, though I'm not sure as things can change in two weeks.
I'm at GMT, so It'll probably end after midnight here if I'm in.

Hey everyone.

Thanks to Krisp I've got some prizes to offer for this Jeopardy

1st place: Choice of prize from the list below
2nd place: Choice of remaining prizes from list below
3rd place: Choice of remaining prizes from list below

Prize List
-----------
- Custom rank voucher
- Name change voucher
- Three Pokemon eggs of your choosing. Must be Pokemon that can legitimately hatch from eggs. Requests for Pokemon that cannot be hatched from eggs (e.g. legendaries) will be considered but no guarantees. Wifi trading on Gen V games only.

You can pass on the prizes of course, in which case the person who placed after you will get a larger list to choose from. If any prizes remain unclaimed after 3rd place has selected/passed, participants who placed lower will not be eligible to claim them. Custom rank is exciting because very few have been given out in recent history. In Samurott's case, if you win the Custom rank you can revert to a standard rank if you choose to do so. No inappropriate ranks or ranks that imply you are staff.

Ok, I found an IRC client but It doesn't work.

TO THE ABANDONED LAGGY LAPTOP.

If I was to win I would definetely choose the Rank voucher, just so Samurott can't have it...

Lets say I was to win it and I wanted to change my rank back... Is that possible or am I stuck with it forever?

So, this forum just got a revamp, its now interesting, we have a few members, we have some games, we're about to open a Forum Shopping Center to buy Pokemon and Items... (If we get store clerks). We have a WEREWOLF game, and I know how much Psypoke likes Werewolf, so If you're itching to play a shorter game than usual, sign up.

You know, I might just be able to take part in this one! I hadn't realized that there were IRC apps for iDevices, so I'll be able to purchase one of them to use. I would just use my PC, but technically, my entire existence on Psypokes is kind of a secret, and that would blow my cover to my over-protective parents, so... yeah. ._.

The only thing that might be a challenge for me is the timing, so I'll see if I can work it into my schedule once the date is decided.

lol people trying to get the custom rank voucher. I'll be defending it. I've been learning up a few things, so I won't be such a pushover.
And twist, you rebel. :p

If DNA get it which he will, I wonder what he'll change the rank too.

Ghost Pony will have it something like Rapidash Lover.
Twist something like... I actually have no idea.
Samurott will either wait... *grins* are we allowed to give the voucher to someone else but decide what their rank is? *maniacal laugh*

Chill will do something like Lone Rebel

And I personally will have my rank set in stone to.....


FRAPPE-CHINO... Or however its spelt. I have had this nickname since I was six. Don't know why i didn't choose this.... Oh wait this Username has been what I've used for everything.

Like last time?

Oh, and I'd just like to point out that I tied with DNA last time. even if it was only because he bet away all his points
If, by some pure fluke, I end up winning this I have no idea what I'd change my rank to.

You say that as if I don't already have a custom rank.

How did you know!? :shock:
I'd have Dusk balls or Luxury balls and my rank would be something like "Shiny Rapidash" or "Rapidash 4ever" or even "Spirit" (future name of my shiny rapidash)
So yes, I'm gonna participate.
What time will it be?

That's what I'm betting on. Since you'll destroy us all again, I plan on finishing second, and try to persuade you not to change your rank.

Didn't know you had a Custom Rank DNA... I thought Psypoke Maniac just came from having over 2500 posts... :shock:

Anyway, I've decided that if i win I'm going to change my rank too.......


KLIK... Because I like things to click into place. Decided against FRAPPECHINO.
