RIFFTRAX PLAYOFFS BRACKET 3 TEST
« on: November 13, 2006, 03:04:02 PM »
Round 3 of the same thing. I am guessing that the real ones should run X number of days, so we can actually flip to ROUND 2 etc...

Everyone play with these and lets get some feedback to see how we want to tweak this before doing the real thing.
Grapes? I hate grapes, I can't stand grapes. I loathe grapes. All kinds of grapes. I hate green grapes and I hate purple grapes. I hate grapes with seeds, I hate grapes without seeds. I hate them peeled and nonpeeled. I hate them in bunches, one at a time and in small groups of twos and threes.

Yes, a time limit is defiantly necessary.  But I like it so far,  we just need to get the word out.  Some one should make a "Vote or Die" thread on the general page when the real polls start.

I'm still a little confused about the bracket idea, only because what if several of the actual overall favorites were in the same bracket?  Not that I'm knocking the idea, I just don't know how it would be possible to control for that.

For that we would have to seed the different movies... in other words, it's impossible.  I don't see it as that big of a problem.  If a movie looses out, it will have a chance during the next Riff Playoffs.

I'm not familiar with the movie Robin Hood: Pot, but then I never really got into stoner movies.  ;)

My take on it is to have totally random generated brackets, that way it eliminates the 'well Troll 2 woulda won if it wasn't up against Batman and Robin' arguments. Of course, there is nothing saying that we can't run more than one playoffs. Just like in real life, if you are a strong contender in the playoffs, you very well might be back the following year. Unless you are an NFL team, and then it's just total luck of the draw.
Of course I would say retire each overall winner as they win.

He steals from the dealers and gives to the poor. Well the broke anyway. Make sure to buy plenty of Cheetos ahead of time.
