Is it too late to accompany the battle report contest? Was planning to do a report for this today.

The judging ends in two days.

It's fine by me if it's ok with the judges. Please go ahead and post the report.

As long as he can get his battle in by the end of judging I think that its fine.

Also, if we don't have scores from silva by Monday, I say promote RedRover to full judge and demote silva to half judge.

Pretty sure I'm only a tiebreaker, right? If not, I'll get to smacking the battle reports with my hammer of judgement.

I mean in the fun way.

Skirmish for Vernoch added. There are a total of four reports to judge. They are listed in the OP, at the bottom.

Judges, you'll have to reevaluate your scores. Every category is rated on a scale from 1-10, except Fun. Fun is the category that is rated 1-20, not Story.

No, the Story Category is the tiebreaker. It will not be added into the final scores. Max Score from Fun (1-20), Violence (1-10), Photography (1-10), and Writing (1-10) is 50.

Secondary judges are meant to do up to two things, if necessary. They can judge the report a Judge sends in (because they can't judge their own report) and they can step in for an absentee judge.

On that note, Silver, you've got today to get your judgements in. If tomorrow (the 16th) rolls around and we haven't heard from Silver, he's out and you're in, Ken.

I don't know what that last thing means but I'm sorry to hear you've been having troubles.

Chat Battle: The Bleeding Crown is missing a judgement from Silver/Ken.

Cops versus Cops is missing a judgement from Silver/Ken.

Skirmish for Vernoch is missing a judgement from RedRover, Zupponn, and Silver/Ken.

Did you have it written incorrectly originally? I cold have sworn that it said Story was supposed to be the 20 point rating.

EDIT: Either way, I have the fourth battle's score posted and all of my scores updated with the 20 point Fun rating and the 10 point Story rating. I ended up just doubling the Fun scores that I already had and halving the Story scores that I already had.

Maybe? If I edited the OP, I did so immediately after posting it. I don't remember doing so, but it's possible. Possible too, that you saw it because you responded so quickly. Also possible that it just got confused because of the order it was written in (looking at the OP, I can see it's stated somewhat awkwardly), because I'm such a big proponent of storytelling, and because I just ran a brikfic contest.

In this case, though, my reasoning was that "Story" is just a nice bonus in a BR or FB, rather than a focus. The most important thing a report needs to be is Fun. Which stems from my strong opinion that the most important thing a game needs to be is Fun.

Thanks, it's what I was planning to do anyway if you guys hadn't caught that it needed changing.
