Due to some issues (including but not limited to the Easter holiday weekend) BATTLEMANIA will not be tonight, but will be either Saturday or Sunday. We apologize for the brief delay.

In related news, this Saturday's EFG program will be cancelled in order to expedite the match writing process.

Thank you and have a happy Easter!

Most likely on Monday, if I can get the match finished and posted by tomorrow night.

What parkera said^
would rather a well-put together event than a rushed show tomorrow. Take all the time you need, mate ^_^

Oddly enough, there's already a version of the BATTLEMANIA match 100% written, but ..I was told that it wasn't going to be used, so now it'll just sit on my hard-drive until I feel like deleting it.

While I do appreciate this event actually taking place and whatnot, and do appreciate the people hosting the event, I'm a little annoyed. We were given the deadline of March 14. The event was supposed to be posted on April 3. Now, I understand things happen, but I have written battle royals before with this number of people, but my thing is, if you knew this event had this timeline, it should have been stuck to. There was almost 3 weeks between the deadline and the actual event. I think there was some poor planning on someones part during the process.

Like I said, I'm just voicing a grievance, and I too would like a solid and well written event instead of something rushed. But at the same time, we had our timelines that we had to follow, I think you should have yours to follow with zero slack.

As always, this is just an opinion to which I am entitled to, I just wanted to voice it so it's out there and possibly someone can clarify a miscommunication on someones part. Not playing the blame game, and I am aware of the amount of RP's that needed judging, but that should have taken no more than a week in my opinion.

Anyway, I'm rambling.

The biggest thing to keep in mind here is the person above your post is the person that was supposed to write the match. He didn't turn up with the match when he was supposed to despite telling Ernie that it would be finished, so when he didn't produce Ernie started writing.

I don't really see that as playing a blame game honestly, but a little extra time for one person to step up to the plate and try to fix the problems that someone who entirely bailed on this tournament and the hobby is probably asking too much though, right?

Then I stand corrected. I must have missed reading that part somewhere on here I suppose. So I apologize. And if this is in fact the case, then go ahead. Take all the time needed. And I now retract my previous statement.

Just let it be known I said that, not being aware of the true reason for the delay. So apologies to whoever my post pissed off, and even more sincere and humble apologies to the one man fixing the issue. Kudos to you, you deserve a medal.

Absolutely inaccurate statement on your part, which I'm assuming you just don't know the truth. Allow me to state the true and correct story.

BATTLEMANIA has been written for nearly a week now. I finished the match on like 3/30 or 3/31. At that time, I spoke to Ernie through Cellular Text Messaging and told him that I was done and I'd send him the match once I got to work. (My wireless network card thingy broke and I can't connect to my Wifi at home.. blah, suck). Either way, because for a week solid I hadn't responded to any of Ernie's text messages on my phone, he decided that he was going to write the match himself.

When I told him I'd completed the match, the response I was given was "Don't bother to send it, I'm writing it myself (with Keegan) and we're using ours."

So.. the deadline of April 3rd, was met ..I was just told that my match was no longer going to be used. As it stands right now, it sits on a thumb-drive, right on my desk at home. I know the reason Ernie (and others probably) don't want to use my match, I.E. - My lack of participation with EFG in the past 2-3 weeks. Which that's cool, no big deal. I'd also say that my lack of responding to the text messages also probably spurned this on. Either way, no big deal to me.

For those who DID write for BATTLEMANIA, if you'd still like to receive my Roleplay Feedback which I completed, let me know, I'll PM it to you individually here on the fWrestling boards.

As far as the match, whatever the case, I'm just ready for the results.

I just rode to have fun, Jorden. But I'll take your feedback. It's always good to hear someone's thoughts.

Jorden Snow

I'd also be interested in receiving any feedback you might have, Jorden. Thanks!

Jorden Snow
04-06-15, 05:46 AM
Damien, sent.

Also, for anyone else in the future that might ask for the feedback.. let me just state that this is not constructive criticism type of feedback where I'm going to harp on and on about what you did wrong, what needs changed, etc. This is more "quick hits comments" type of feedback while reading your Roleplays. As I read something I really liked, I made a note about it. If I read something I disliked, I even made note of it. Then by the time I finished reading what you had written, I had a paragraph of feedback.

Thus what you'll be getting from me.

Mike Best

I can vouch for Jordan's story, by the way, as it's almost exactly what I was told by Ernie himself while he was working on the match. He was worried that Jordan didn't actually have it completed, and didn't want to lose a day of writing in case Jordan didn't have it done.

Props to Ernie for wanting to make sure it was finished, and props to Jordan for actually finishing it. Just a crossing of wires that lead to an unfortunate situation, much like a lot of this first trial run of Battlemania.

And I'd love your feedback, Jordan. Hit me up.

Jorden Snow

Ernie hasn't wanted to take time away from writing while he's at the computer to look back here so I'm posting this as a progress report. I stepped in this evening to help with the writing of the show, it's about half way done, and if it isn't finished tomorrow it will be done by Wednesday.

Parkera
04-07-15, 02:30 AM
Thanks for the update Jesse, tell Ernie stop stressing and worrying it will be ready once its done. Either way it will be a great read!

At this point shouldn't you just use Jorden's finished version?

Jesse Ramey

As far as I know Jorden hasn't sent this version of the match to anyone, so it's still sitting on a flash drive if it is finished.

Sorry, but this thing lost me when the one dude posted in the other thread that he ranked Eugene Dewey dead last in his judging.

Everything in this thread for the most part illustrates every single regular occurring issue with this game. Egos. Late results. Ass kissing. ect.

Honestly though you had 30 people fill the thing up in 24 hours. So there are a lot of people put there who where passionate in wanting to write. You had 30 role plays turned into the event, on a strict deadline. This goes to show that a lot of issue with this game do not solely lay in the hands of people writing the characters, it is the people running the show. I know that things happen life ect, but this is way way too past your strict deadline. I mean taking a few extra days is absolutely fine, but this is pretty long to wait. . . not to mention people already have a good idea where they sit via a judges posted results. This game is just fun, I get that all the time and most of the time I have fun. I have fun writing. I assume you have fun judging and putting together results if not why do it? What I am saying is when stuff doesn't get done where is the fun? There a cute little rhyming couplet for you.

Thank god there was no entrance fee.

Good effort, better luck next year.

The version I wrote is still in my desk.. If the match isn't posted before I go back to work.. I'll post my version when I do go back to work. All the other stuff in this thread.. Haha. As far as the feedback requests, those will be sent out when I get back to work too.

Waiting for results is nothing new at all as I had to wait for 2 months for results to come out before and the longer you wait, the better they turn out in the end. Think some of you should be a bit more patient.

DEF just posted its fifth early show in a row.

I'm just saying, is all.

CycloneJK
04-07-15, 08:23 PM
Honestly, I can understand people's frustrations over this, particularly as we were set to a hard deadline of "this is when your contribution needs to be up" which is perfectly fine as we were all able to do that, with exception to Lord Raab's, who wasn't that far off the mark himself anyway. I was talking about this to the other guys from my fed in this thing and we were all wondering what's going on with the results. Apart from this, the longest delay we've had was probably a day and a half, and our writers have about 48hrs between deadline and the show going up to get stuff in. In this case, it has been nigh on a month since deadline.

I'm not laying blame on anyone here for what's going on, because I myself have no idea, but it is easy to understand people's frustrations.

Jesse Ramey
04-07-15, 09:01 PM
I can't really speak to the situation with the match originally. All I have to go off of is what Ernie has told me, Jorden made it pretty clear while the tournament was going that my input on matters of generally any kind outside of doing my job as a judge weren't wanted.

Hadn't really spoken to Ernie until like a day or so ago because we had problems as well. I asked how he was doing with the match, and then offered to help. So, my contribution to this wasn't even supposed to be a thing in general. The way the match is looking right now if things keep going the way they are it could be done tonight. Which as far as I can tell is only two days off of the expected time for the match anyway, because it was slated for Easter, which was Sunday. So, two days in total.

I feel like I've been taking a big hit as far as catching blame for stuff here and the only involvement I had with this originally was as a judge and I was against even doing that at first because of the shit storm that happened due to my judging. The way I look at it is this, a problem arose somewhere down the pipe regardless and people who have other things they should be worrying about have stepped in to help try and solve the problem, there was an update early this morning on the situation, but yet the waves of complaints don't stop.
