Important Rules:

  1. Your entries must be spotted during the active bingo period. Feel free to scout out likely names, but you can't use a great name you know unless you see it between the designated times. Honor system here.
  2. You may not use your own names, but all other names are on the table. In keeping with the spirit of this competition, collusion between players is not discouraged.
  3. If any player want's to contest a submitted name, we will arrange a test.

Scoring:

GENERAL

  • +5 Points for completing each 7-tile column
  • +8 for completing each 7-tile row or diagonal (they're harder)
  • +1 for each tile filled
  • +30 for completing the entire chart
  • + total # of tiles filled - total # of names used (i.e. you get more points for using fewer names)
 

BONUS CATEGORIES

  • +10 each for completing a racial column within the designated race (honor system here; self reporting)
  • +10 a redundant name entry (e.g. Fangtooth Furpelt)
  • +10 an oxymoronic name entry (e.g. Tiny Bigbutt)
  • +10 an entry for thematic name on the wrong class/race (e.g. an asura named Bjorn Dragonfjord; a thief named Face McSmasher)
  • +20 The name that covers the most tiles across all entries (if there's a tie, each tied entry will get +10)
  • +20 The name with the most diacritics across all entries (if there's a tie, each tied entry will get +10)

Okay, that's funny. Both Virq and I found Machinist Gygaxx over the weekend. I didnt' notice until I went back to look through the other entries!

Stunning entries. I'll be announcing the winners in game in just a few minutes, and I'll record those results here as well.

Thanks, you three, for collecting so many gems.

The Results!

  • 1st place goes to Kitty, who edged out the 2nd place contestant after the judges were forced to disqualify her entry for the Charr Claw category (teeth =/= claws!). Despite that hiccup, she had the most complete card. Very impressive. Chaos Gun for you!
  • 2nd place goes to Virq. Her card is hilarious. Recommended reading! Dandy Bluster for you!
  • 3rd place goes to Khani, whose card is full of memorable entries. Squeedily Spooch to you!

 

And the delightful Specialty Category entries:

 

GROSSEST: 250 [&AgEPXwAA]. We have a stunning, 3-way tie.

  • Winner: Kitty’s “Pooponmyhamster” combines feces and a pets notorious for carrying the smell of urine-soaked cedar chips. The hamster’s general mobility and the threat of distributed poo amplify the ick, and the fact that this is, technically, written in the imperative mood--demanding that we “doo” as we’re told--had the judges veritably scurrying down our tubes. A strong entry.
  • Winner: Anytime you’re talking reproduction in GW2, you’re probably gross--a lesson we learn anew with Virq’s “The Vasectomizer.” That special frisson you get from the collision of knives and genitalia gives this a bit of extra punch. Very potent grossness.
  • Winner: Khani’s “Blood Soap” invites you to imagine all kinds of bathroom scenes. None are good. Perverting the substance we rely on to make us make us clean--that is nextlevelgross.

 

TRYING TOO HARDEST: [&AgEgHgEA]

  • Winner: Kitty’s “The Son of Krypton” comes from space and bends steal. He’s also a joyless asshole who needs to be taken seriously.
  • Angel Deathblade (Virq)
  • Luhmia The Vampire [The Unclean] (Khanit)

 

Best/worst Pun: [&AgEObwAA]

  • Kelppto The Maniac (kitty)
  • Dr Hugh Mungus (Virq)
  • Winner: “Soiled Planties” comes to us from Khani, whose own toon roster could have filled all our bingo cards in this category. Is “soiled planties” good pun or a bad pun? We can never know.

 

Most Illegible: [&AgFmbgAA] and [&AgHvtwAA]

  • Blehbluhaa (Kitty)
  • Winner: Virq brings us “Vcvcvcvcvc.” Trying to whisper this asshole? Good luck. Better get out your ruler and hold it to the screen, because you’ll never count how many letter pairs there are without it.
  • Khani provided very strong entries (Sodenoshirayukii / Eahohahahtingtang. But we DQ’ed her for multiple entries. Such a bot.

 

PVP-EST: Sooo much salt.

  • Winner: Virq wins for the delicious “Angelic Ownage.” It is self-aggrandizing, likely exploits the Human Female Meta, and generally comes off as a pimply mess of juvenile testosterone.
  • Khani’s “Just The Pip” was a close second. What could be more pvp than a subtle rape threat? But the judges considered it a bit nouveau riche, given the age of the pip system.
  • Kitty's Deathly Bad Dps / Doing the Least were good but we DQ’ed her for multiple entries. Such a bot!
