Favorite Contests

Post  Dux Mortalitas on Tue Feb 03, 2015 1:04 pm

Hi guys and gals, I was just hoping to get some feedback on your favorite contests and which ones you were not so interested in.
If you could list your top three favorite contests in order from 1-3 and then again list your least favorite contests from 1-3 that would help me get an idea of which of the contests I run could or should be improved upon or even dropped or substituted for other contests. Please don't limit yourself to contests that I run though as that will help me to understand where the contest that I run fit into the overall picture.

List of contests (to jiggle your memory):
Oddball
Dethroner
Killlfest
Karma Contest
Undefeated Warrior
Other (there have been other irregularly run contests in the past, which I have forgotten the names of that hopefully someone else can write-in)

Anyway, any feedback you can give would be greatly appreciated!

1. Undefeated warrior...I like this one because it is straight-forward and every warrior gets to participate.  It is by far my favorite.
2. Oddball...I like the idea of this one, but it is so hard to balance/setup.  Some of the categories will always be much easier than others.
3. Dethroner...I think this adds a lot to UW.

The kill/karma contests are fun, there just doesn't seem to be enough killing.  Or maybe it is just my turn that doesn't seem to have enough killing Smile.

Here are my favorites:

1. Undefeated Warrior...even though I get my arse handed to me early Mad
2. Killfest...nothing like pushing gladiators to kill other gladiators( and I run it Laughing )
3. Dethroner...when you cannot win, it is SO much fun knocking off those who might Razz

Least favorite
1. Oddball....because I cannot seem to get good roll-ups for the designs! Rolling Eyes
2. Karma Contest...because I am not winning it! Shocked

If Keeper actually ran his contest we wouldn't really need all of these, but they do keep me interested in checking my turns. When contests are not running I might go a month without even checking strats or trains.

1. Undefeated Warrior
2. Oddball
3. killfest/karma contest (tied for third)

My least favorite is dethroner, but only because I fear it detracts from UW.

One of the things I like best about UW and oddball, is that they are lower maintenance, meaning I don't have to spend a lot of time looking up challenges.

Cripes forgot all about The Blind Circle of Death Contest...Actually liked that one as well. Havent seen it run in 4 years or so...think Palor ran it last time. Of course that was a specialty contest for those who signed up for it.

I'll bet Dethroner is one of Stalker's favorites though. As it greatly shortens UW making UW much less a burdon. Just curious. In what way do you think Dethroner detracts from UW?

I just get the feeling that, like in baseball statistics, there should be an asterisk next to UW winner listings when Dethroner runs, to separate them from previous UW contests when there wasn't a second contest running parallel to it. Sure, there were challenges that happened, but when it is a contest at stake, more people will actively participate.
