    Default Bounty of the Kings

    Ladies and gentlemen, it's here, and it's going to be epic.








    First, allow me to hook your attention. Last bounty I did was very popular; had more views than any of the divisional stickies, and tons and tons of responses. I gave out 47,000 CC to the winner. Not bad.

    This time, I'm multiplying that by 10. Oh yeah, and adding a million. Interested? good.


    The Challenge

    Here in the TF2 department, there are nine elusive characters that have been hiding amongst us. They are the Kings of TF2. Each one represents a different class, and they play them with devastating effectiveness. These players will chew you up and spit you out before you even know what hit you.

    Except... I can't really recall who they are.


    That's right; it's a mystery. 9 players have been selected as the target of this bounty, and all of them will be active and running around our servers for the next 2 weeks. They are all eGO members, of course. Your job is to dominate them on their favorite map while they play their favorite class (of which they will be the king). For doing this, you will receive a substantial amount of CC, as detailed in the Rewards section below. In order to claim them, you must post a picture of you dominating who you think the king is, stating: I have dominated [name], king of the [class]. If you are correct, you get money. if you are wrong, you aren't allowed to post any more dominations here for 24 hours.

    In order for it to be valid, the domination must occur while the king is playing their designated class, and it must be on their favorite server. for clarity, YOU don't have to be playing the same class as the king; you can play any class for it to be valid.


    EDIT: for clarity: the kings all know who they are; I contacted them prior to this. They don't, however, know who the other kings are.



    The Method


    "But Dread!" I hear you cry, "There are so many great players in eGO! how will I ever figure out who the king is?" Well, this thread isn't just about the kings. Remember my winner takes it all bounty? Well, a similar thing will happen here. You can dominate any player in eGO and post a picture of it. Every domination will get you a point. No, not money; a 'point'.

    What are points good for?

    Buying clues about the kings, of course. Every domination you get counts as a point, and once you get enough, you can trade them in for a clue (or information) about your king of choice. Those prices are listed right here:

    **NEW!**


    5 Points: 5k Token! each of these is worth 5k at the end of the bounty!
    10 Points: KingDom token! Used to steal credit for king dominations (one of the 3 required components.)


    5 Points: Additional CC on a specific King's head (see reward section).
    10 Points: The King's favorite map (that you will need to dominate them on).
    15 Points: A cryptic clue that will give you a hint as to who it is.
    30 Points: The name of the King.

    ***When buying clues, please make sure to specify which king you are buying it for.***

    NEW ITEMS ARE IN STOCK!

    MYSTERY BOX #1 has been bought! What was inside: KingDom tokens! A lot of kings have already been dominated, and it's looking like the people who are going to get the money are set. OR NOT! Buy a KingDom token (which will be credited with a * beside your name), dominate the king of your choice AND their original dominator, and you'll steal the the domination! See this post for details.

    MYSTERY BOX #2 has been bought! What was inside: Point sharing is now enabled! You can now request your points to be given to other players! This enables teaming up with friends to buy big things!

    Additionally, you can opt to pay double the posted price for any one of these items to have the information sent to you via PM, and not posted here for everyone else to see. Getting clues privately is really expensive, but it keeps everyone else from knowing about it; it gives you an edge!




    Also: Just like my previous bounty, dominating someone with points will give you all of thier points! Stealing points can, and will, happen.


    The Rewards


    Now this is the fun part. Yes, you heard up above; I'm putting 1.4 million CC behind this bounty. That's a lot. Here's how it's going to be split up:

    • Every King that successfully evades domination will be given 50k as a 'pat on the back.'
    • If at least 5 Kings are dominated, the remainder of my money will be split equally between the dominators.
    • If less than 5 kings are dominated, 200,000 CC will be split among the 5 people who got the most regular dominations, and the rest will be split evenly among those who dom'd the Kings.
    • If no Kings are dominated, the remaining money will be split proportionally among all of those who posted regular dominations.
    • In the incredibly unlikely event that one person gets all nine kings, they will recieve all of the money, no questions asked.




    This means a few things:

    • If you dominate a king, there is NO WAY that you will receive less than 100k, and likely, it will be much more.
    • Even if you don't end up getting a king, if not many people do, there's a chance that just regular dominations will earn you lots of money. That means you should put in as many doms as you can!
    • In my winner takes it all bounty, there were roughly 210 dominations turned in. If no kings are dominated here, those would be worth roughly 5k a piece! 10 times what they were worth before!



    As long as you participate, there's a good chance you're going to make some good cash!


    Additionally, many (but not all) of the kings have decided to augment the bounty by putting some extra money on their head. I'm not going to disclose the amount; You can choose to reveal it for a specific king for 5 points. What does that mean? It means that some kings are most certainly sweeter than others.



    The Hard Rules (TL;DR)



    • Your job is to dominate the Kings of TF2, but you don't know who they are.
    • By posting dominations on regular eGO members, you get points.
    • You can use points to buy clues to the identities of the Kings.
    • All dominations must be current (read: made after this post).
    • Dominations of regular players may be assists. Dominations on the Kings may only be assists if you are playing medic. Otherwise, they must be kills.
    • To claim a King domination, you have to call it: You must say "I have dominated [name], the King of [class]" for the domination to be valid. If you happen to dominate a king but without calling it, it doesn't count.
    • Bounty Ends September first.



    Additional information


    Unfortunately, my internet decided to fritz in the middle of an editing session. what happened? everything below this point was erased. If you have questions, IM me, but I think at this point, you probably all know the rules.

    Some additional questions that merit a repost from the original post:

    Are the kings the best players of their classes?: Not necessarily. It's not my place to judge that. I simply picked players who represented the classes well; that means they're good players, but not necessarily the best players.

    Are there Queens as well, or just Kings?: Still a good question.



    Reminder: there's a secret 10th king. They're secret. No clues. Go find them and kill them. you'll instantly get 100k.

    Yeah, I run 1440x900, and I generally either reduce my pics by 60% when I post them to the site (cause I think that works well) Or I just link them. Makes it easier on everyone's eyes... and prevents people having to scroll right to left as they scroll down to read things D:
