OC Monkeys vs. MPC Monkeys Prize Ideas


I need to get some ideas of prizes for the up and coming competition. A couple that have been suggested are:

- the loosing team folds 50,000 points under a preselected username for the winning team's team.
- Ex. MPC Monkeys lose, they fold 50k points under Username:mpcTeamMonkey=tehLo0se / team: 32

- the loosing team must wear dresses and post pix

I know a few of you want a different prize and I for one am not satisfied with the current options.

Let me know some ideas and i will get a poll started.

Submissions will end Friday the 28th.

I would much prefer losers to fold the 50K points for the winning team, that would be over in a couple of days, the dresses will haunt you for the rest of your life.

Wouldn't that involve making them start over with a new name?

That is an excellent idea! I'd say that's a pretty high stakes wager considering the smack talking going on.

Perfect. With a the penalty for losing that severe, the competion would be intense.

And as a bonus Team 32 will have the only Monkeys when this is over!

I haven't posted them yet because of the ongoing discussion of the prize. I'll do that when all is agreed upon. The only part that was posted was the official start time, which is Friday, May 5th, 12 noon Pacific Daylight Time.

Also, I'd like to get the prize thing hashed out so the official rules can be posted for all before the start time.

That would never go over, for one, it's not between team 32 and team 11108, it is between 2 users.
