Hello friends and colleagues! Resident disc jockey and potted plant djkaktus here, to announce an exciting new contest for any interested particip-
Writing contest? What? No. Why would we do a writing contest?
No, what I'm announcing is the
First Annual SCP Foundation March Madness Deathmatch Bracket Challenge!
Sponsored by the KaktusKast
Intrigued? Good, I would hope so. I'm sure you have questions, which is also good, so let me break down how this works.
STEP ONE: Nominate SCPs
If we're going to host a deathmatch, we first need the unwilling willing participants. If you would like to nominate an SCP, please do so in this thread; don't hesitate, because we'd like to get a full 64. You can nominate as many as you'd like, and myself and my crack team of deathmatch organizers will sift through the nominations and make the final decisions on which SCPs to enter into the tournament.
Some notes about nominations - due to the nature of certain SCPs, there are some that would pretty easily break the contest. To that end, a couple of rules are necessary:
- No SCPs that are completely invulnerable.
- No SCPs that are immortal.
- No SCPs that are concepts or locations.
- No SCPs that are super massive (thing Hateful Star, the Leviathan, etc.)
- -J's are totally fine.
STEP TWO: Organize Entries
All entries into the contest will first be organized and arranged so as to fit the format (for example, SCP-610 would not be the entire anomaly, but more likely an afflicted entity of some kind). Then, the aforementioned crack team of deathmatch organizational staff will review each of the entries, and give each entry a set of offensive and defensive stats. During the deathmatch, these stats will be fed into a ~~super sekrit combat simulator~~ which will determine the outcome of the match.
STEP THREE: Place Yer Bets
Once the field is set and the stats are in place, I'll link in here to a tournament bracket where you can review the matchups and make your predictions. All users will be able to create a maximum of 3 brackets.
STEP FOUR: BATTLE ROYALE
Then the contest starts! Each round will be completed within a single day, with a few days in-between before the next round. In a perfect world, I would've come up with this sooner so as to get the ball rolling earlier in March, but if the NCAA can do this so can we. Winners of each match will be announced in this thread and on the tournament bracket website, and a special event will be held for the championship round.
STEP FIVE: Claim yer booty
Once the tournament has concluded, the organizers will review the user-submitted bracket predictions. The overall winner of the bracket challenge will be the user(s) with the most overall points in their bracket. Additional details as to how the scoring system works will be announced once the field is prepared and the bracket is opened.
That all being said, if you have any other questions, please feel free to ask below. I'll try to get to as many as I can, and if there are any good questions I'll edit them into this post.
I hope to get as many users as possible onboard this hype train, so start nominating SCPs and get ready for that sweet, sweet March Madness!
Would we know the parameters of each fighter and how the battles would go about?
Yes, in a sense. The simulator has a number of parameters that you can add values for, and those will be listed when the list of participants comes up. That said, how the battle is actually calculated is, even to me, a mystery. It isn't my simulator, I didn't design it, I just found it and thought it would fit the bill. The details that I have, you'll have, and that should help with your final picks.
