The 2018 Wrestleview Royal Rumble Pool (V Edition)

Post by BioticZombie » Thu Jan 04, 2018 11:04 pm

Welcome to the 5th edition of the Royal Rumble pool. If you're game, simply say you're in. We have usually gotten a good crowd between 6-10 players every year, so don't hesitate because this has somehow worked for the past 4 years.



Here's a quick rundown of the rules:
Each player draws a set of numbers. The numbers coordinate with the number entrant in WWE's Royal Rumble match. Scoring is based on the corresponding entrant's performance in the rumble match. The winner is the player with the highest score.

PLAYERS:NUMBERS

2 players - 15 numbers
3 players - 10 numbers
5 players - 6 numbers
6 players - 5 numbers
10 players - 3 numbers
15 players - 2 numbers
30 players - 1 number
Click Here to see last year's scoresheet for a better understanding how the rules work. I'll be working on another draft for the actual rule sheet throughout the upcoming weeks if we get the ball rolling. For now, let's just see how many people sign in. Get ready to Rumble.

Hi guys. Just a reminder there are a couple of slots open and I'm just now barely realizing there are two fucking rumbles this year so I have to figure out how that's gonna work

Gimmie.

Do two drawings, one for each rumble, and add the totals? This way you have numbers for each match, instead of the same for both.

Here is a workshop of the new and improved scorecard.

Some notes:
* I'll randomize numbers and assign them tomorrow. You will get 6 numbers, 3 numbers for the men and 3 for the women.
** If for some reason you want a specific color, feel free to share I'm not good at assigning colors beyond my own.
***WE STILL HAVE ROOM FOR ONE MORE PLAYER
**** Please let me know if the scorecard does not work for you. This is the main source of reading the results, it is documented. While stats won't be updated live, I'll definitely fill in the names for what superstars you pulled as they appear in the live broadcast.

And we have ourselves a game. For those of you new here, welcome! If you've played before, I hope you find the new additions welcoming.

____________________________________________

How To Play
Here are the official rules as follows:
- Each player draws 3 numbers for each Royal Rumble match.
- You earn points by the performance from the superstars who enter at your number.
- Player with the most cumulative points will win the entire game!
Scoresheet

You'll find your numbers already posted in here. Please let me know if the link doesn't work, as this sheet is the vital part of the game.

Earning points

In the scoresheet, you'll notice different columns where points are tallied. Here's how you'll earn said points as follows:

Superstar

Yes, you can actually earn points in the Superstar section. If the superstar who enters at your number is not on the active main roster, it counts for something:
NXT Superstar - 15 points
Back from Injury - 30 points
Returning Legend (retired or otherwise) - 45 points
Wild Card - 60 points


Order of Elimination

The sequence of eliminations throughout the Rumble. The last few to be eliminated will be rewarded (including the actual winner).
Eliminated by someone not currently participating in the Rumble match - -10 points
Final 4 - 20 points
Runner Up - 30 points + F4
Winner - 50 points + F2 + F4
Record Tied: 25 points
*Batista, John Cena, Randy Orton, and Triple H are the only superstars eligible to tie Stone Cold Steve Austin's legendary record of winning 3 Royal Rumble matches. No record breaking here, unless Stone Cold Steve Austin somehow enters the Rumble. If he even wins at that, you've pretty much won the game already.

Eliminations

When your superstar eliminates another superstar.
1 elimination - 10 points (points are divided in the case of superstars being assisted in the elimination of another superstar)
Single Record - 50 points
Cumulative Record - 20 points
At 43 eliminations, Kane holds the all-time cumulative record for total eliminations in Royal Rumble matches. Roman Reigns holds the record for total eliminations in a single Royal Rumble match, at 12. If Kane enters the Royal Rumble, points are rewarded if he sets the new record. If these records are tied, only half of the points are rewarded.

Special Actions

Special events performed in the royal rumble match.
Finisher - 10 points
Tag Team Finisher - 20 points
A Kofi Life Saving Spot - 20 points
Duration

The length of time in which your superstar remains in the Rumble match. These do not add up, so earning points for 20 minutes will not earn you the ones already earned from earning 15 minutes.
Less than a minute - -10 points
5 minutes - 5 points
10 minutes - 10 points
15 minutes - 15 points
20 minutes - 25 points
30 minutes - 50 points
45 minutes - 75 points
60+ minutes - 100 points
Single Record - 50 points
Cumulative Record - 25 points
Last year, Chris Jericho broke the record for longest cumulative time spent in Royal Rumble matches at 4:58:12. Rey Mysterio holds the record for longest time spent in a single Rumble at 1:02:12.

Hoo boy, 25 and 28, that could be a profitable pair of numbers in the men's Rumble. Unless we got a marathon runner at #2, I'm not anticipating many points for me in the women's match.

Is it just me, or does the ring sound odd when bumps are taken tonight? They usually have a mic beneath the ring to amplify the sound, but it seems... off... tonight.
