The Bell

Postby Joey » Mon Feb 01, 2016 1:09 pm

So this is a post tat should really be in all 3 of the remote severs. Just another reason why we should conform to the rest of the website and unite under 1 banner of South Central server, with sub servers for the individual towns!. Anyway onwards.

Firstly I hold the bell on behalf of Reading for the first time, yay!

So I was thinking about how anticlimactic getting the bell was yesterday, as by the end of the cut barely anyone else was there for banter. Also in a big high stakes tournement (ie one with a cut) I admit thoughts of the bell had left my mind by the latter stages of the T8.

Therefore my proposition is that the bell is awarded to the highest eligible player after the Swiss.. this ofcourse makes no difference to GNKs, only events with a cut. But also allows for more tense and banterous moments when announcing final cut placements. And finally is decided when everyone is still there and allows those making the cut to then play for the lesser (official) prizes.

What are people's thoughts????

In other news I want to publicly declare my allegiance in all bell and banter related things to the Reading meta. As some of you may know I recently moved house. And rather embarrassingly my postcode is now OX10 and I'm in south Oxfordshire (awkward) however I am still closer to Reading than Oxford proper (by about 2 miles), and still work in Reading so will be at eclectic for regular meet ups not thirsty meeples... I hope this is satisfactory for everyone, if not I intend to start a new North Stoke meta of just me, as I'll never change my allegiance to that of the evil Oxford meta!

Finally looking forward to 2 more weekends playing games with you fine people :).

Yes I agree with that idea (and not because I would now be the bell holder!) was a bit of anticlimax, "Oh Joey I'm out so you get the bell"

I'm also looking forward to this weekend, with big changes to my corp deck I'll be using this weekend as more of a testing ground

I have no issues with this timing of awarding the Bell. All Bell awarding should be done at a time to maximise chat and jokes between the Redoxshot players.

Yeah, BABW Reading had it, but there was a lot more representation from all factions there, not least because the final was Oxford-Reading, but also because there were more people attending that day (presumably because being in the middle, Reading is more convenient for all concerned)
