Alternate Battle Rules

Postby Matapiojo » Mon Apr 19, 2010 1:54 pm

There has been some confusion in the past about what is meant by Alternate Battles.

As a spin-off Forum Community to a debating website, we cannot establish debates in this site. This is specifically addressed by Admin on entry #11 of the Forum Rules. That said, there is still room for nagging questions and/or concerns to be sorted out via the only way they can be...debates.

That's where this section comes in. Alternate Battles must adhere to the following:
Alternate Battles wrote:1) An Alternate Battle debate may only be created if there is an existing battle for it on Factpile.com. If no original battle is present on the main site, the thread will be closed.

2) A link for the original battle MUST be provided at the top of the created post. If one is not provided, the battle may be closed until an active link is established. (A battle image is optional)

3) The new Alternate Battle must be given a unique scenario, it cannot have the same scenario as the original debate on the main site. Note that while some debates have no scenario to speak of, later determinations may have been provided by Admin or the piler who requested the battle. These items must be taken into consideration for an Alternate Battle to be created here.

4) If your proposed Alternate Battle does not have an original debate on the main site, you must submit a Battle Request to Admin before creating one here. As stated above, your new battle will be closed otherwise.

5) Alternate Battles must still adhere to the FactPile Debating Guidelines. However, you may submit any number of scenario alterations within a single thread once the previous one has been resolved.



To post an Alternate Battle the following Template must be used.

Instruction:
Hit Select All on the code box below and copy it.

Start a new topic, the topic should be named after the opponents fighting.

Paste the contents of the code box for the OP.

Remove Asterisks and the contents in them after finishing the instructions they give you.

Remove any other unused part.

Code: Select all
[B]Opponent/Team Number 1: [/B]*Insert the name(s) of the first Opponent/Team*


[B]Opponent/Team Number 2: [/B]*Insert the name(s) of the second Opponent/Team*

*If there are 3 or more opponents, or 3 or more teams copy and paste the above and change the ‘Number 2’ to ‘Number 3’ and ‘of the second’ to ‘of the third’ and so on with the fourth or fifth*


[b]Original Thread:[/b] [url=*paste the original battle's URL here*]*type the original battle title here*[/url]


[B]Alternate Equipment:[/B] *Put the Weapons/Armor/Equipment that the Opponents/teams will be using. If it’s specific stuff, be detailed. And if it’s the same as the original match, still put it down.*


[B]Alternate Location:[/B] *Write down the area the battle will be taking place. And if it’s a custom area, be detailed on what there is. Vague descriptions will mean a lot of questions. And if the area can be accompanied by a picture please use it with the following instructions.*

[IMG]*Insert the URL of the picture here*[/IMG]

[B]Alternate Scenario:[/B] *write down the goals of each side, it can be a capture the flag type thing, fighting off zombies will trying to kill eachother, or a straight up deathmatch.*





Here is an Alternate Battle example:
Opponent/Team Number 1: Master Chief


Opponent/Team Number 2: Marcus Fenix


Original Thread: Master Chief Vs Marcus Fenix


Alternate Equipment: Marcus gets standard equipment. Chief gets standard equipment but his shields are damaged and will not activate for 30 minutes.


Alternate Location: The battle takes place in a Locust Tunnel.



Alternate Scenario: Master Chief must capture Marcus Fenix. After 40 minutes, Flood infested Locust will arrive and attack both sides.


Happy Alternating!

We didn't feel there was a reason to since its a clear point in the Forum Rules, but apparently we did need to make a single post to address this.

My prediction is that this sticky will be just as ignored...

Let's hope not. In general, the community tries to follow the rules. I don't think it'll be ignored...

No, I don't think I will.

You see, that was the part Mata specifically asked me to add to it(Not in those exact words, but to add something that says those words in some way or another). For good reason, CLEARLY if you guys need a template to do Alternate Battles, then you need all the help you can get! I mean, how else are you supposed to figure out how to make more then two opponents? :mrgreen:

To lazy to remove it. But is it really that big of a deal? Is the sheer fact that its there making you go crazy? No? Then stop complaining. I did a quick Copy/Paste filled the stuff in that I needed to, deleted stuff, then submitted. It still gets the point across.
