Round 2: Soldano won, beating out Splawn in a heated final push.

Congrats to Mike Soldano and team

OK guys it is that time of year again. These types of threads normally are not allowed and usually get closed so don't blow it. Copy cats will get closed. Spam will get reported. Please Read the Rules and the Updates as the voting weights get heavier as the game progresses. Then, once we have a winner we will pit the winner against a new Round 2 higher end amp list.

Things have been slow lately so let's have some fun and I didn't do it last year. Remember, it is just a game and there are tons of amps out there but we have to draw the line somewhere. For those of you that do not care for these types of threads I suggest you simply not post and ignore it.

After careful consideration I settled on 12 amp brands/10 points each to start. Everyone get one Heal and one Hurt vote. Use the Hurt/Heal notation and then add or subtract.

We will start with the voting of 1 but may change that as we go along so pay attention. See example below.


Please read the simple rules first to keep things clean. If you don't know how to play then just watch for awhile until you get the hang of it.

Rules:

1.) This is not a Spam thread. Mods could be watching so don't ruin it. and No flaming!
2.) Only ONE vote per 24 hours (since your last vote).
3.) The list is locked, we are not adding or subtracting brands.
4.) Make sure you copy/paste the correct list. If you take too much time, and someone posts before you, it is your responsibility to fix YOUR post for accuracy. This is especially important in the beginning when everyone jumps in. If there are too many people posting at once, sometimes it is better to back down and wait a bit.
5.) If you send a brand to '0', write KILL next to the name. The next poster should delete the brand before posting their next vote.
6.) You get one hurt and one heal per vote; a hurt removes one point and a heal adds one. Change the total within your post.
7.) Please don't go back and edit your post unless you've made an error. It makes checking and counting nearly impossible. Double check your own post before submitting it to avoid issues.
8.) Do not 'Quote' the list. Copy Paste into a normal Reply.
9.) If you don't understand how to play/post then just watch for a bit.


We may change the voting weight later so please pay attention.

Here is an example:


Brand A 9 Hurt
Brand B 10
Brand C 10
Brand D 11 Heal


Brand A 8 Hurt
Brand B 10
Brand C 10
Brand D 12 Heal

Brand A 8
Brand B 9 Hurt
Brand C 11 Heal
Brand D 12


First poster copy/paste this list and get us started. Remember, if too many people post at once, the list gets screwed up so reply quickly and use the EDIT function if things get out of control.

All double checked, accurate up to this point. I edited a few posts for consistency and removed one that was too incorrect to interpret.

Changed the first post, too, to be a little more clear; let's not put the +/- number, it becomes difficult at a glance to see if the change has already been applied, and it's easier to just copy/paste the one above you this way. I think we're on track now. Here's the official tally:

That was tough to heal between Jet City and Peavey but I went with Peavey for the Vypyr VIPs.

Also tough to hurt Blackstar or Bugera but I think that false advertising is worse than putting out shitty clones.

Thanks Colin

I do appreciate everyone helping to keep track of the votes. Period.


Keep it up.


The reason I was designating the (+1) (-1) is because if we change the weights, as we usually do, it is easier to see what is going on if we are doing (for example) (+5)(-3) or whatever.

We can leave it as is for now as the list is shorter this year and we seem to be making progress. The simpler the better

You should have seen it last time in 2011 when I gave everyone 5 points for every 24 hrs to vote up or down however they saw fit One hear, two there, negative two here. Talk about a nightmare to keep track of.

OK, so Offworld missed Marshall change but Arby made up for it.
Arby missed the Blackstar change which is now 6 not 7.

If you make an adjustment in the tally maybe make note of that in ().
