Hares Death Pool 2019

Recommended Posts

By popular demand we move to a new yearly thread system. Supposedly it flows more easily for many people to have boxed off yearly threads, and at 47 pages the old one was getting a tad long.

 

Welcome to the 6th annual Hares Death Pool. Sick of your Deathrace team living a few months too long, they (topped up with a few friends) might do okay here....

The Rules (Last updated 6 March 2016)

 

  • All teams must contain 25 picks. A maximum 5 subs are allowed.
  • All picks must be humans aged over 18 on January 1st of the game year..
  • Death row prisoners only score if they die of other causes, those still on trial will still score points if sentenced to execution after 0000 on January 1st.
  • Celebrities qualify if they achieve an obituary or article about their death in a local, national or even specialist newspaper - the article does not need to specifically relate to their death, instead just mention it and date it. or website/magazine/paper. If in doubt cite your death note for approval. There is absolutely no requirement for obits to be in the English language, however translations should be provided if they are not.
  • Entries must be posted between 0001 on the 1st December and 2359 on December 31st, if a pick dies before 2359 but it's not known until January 1st they may be replaced until 2359 GMT on January 1st provided the replacement hasn't died between 0000 and their addition to the team on January 1st (with the sub system your sub will be promoted). The Game runner is permitted to enter a team on the express understanding that team is visible prior to the entries opening.
  • Changes are permitted to teams up until the deadline. However these must be made clear to the game runner via new PM or post, not an edit to your original submission long after I've copied them over to the database - it just won't be seen. 
  • For the 2018 competition late entries are not permitted. This varies year by year on the benevolence of the game-runners benevolence. 
  • Murdering your chosen "celebrities" is both against the rules and illegal regardless of willing participation.
  • Keeping alive another persons pick against the picks will to benefit in this game is also against the rules.
  • If assisted euthanasia becomes legal in the future, contestants in this dead pool are forbidden from encouraging/discouraging/or actively taking part in their or another contestants picks decision regarding this or being an active participant in their euthanasia. This rules apply to assisted euthanasia in other countries of picks.
  • Celebrities are disqualified if they are a celebrity because of their impending death. For clarification Tom Attwater - fundraiser dying of cancer was an eligible pick for his fundraising. This man who became critically ill after being hit by a trolley in M&S would not be an eligible pick if his identity were known for a game held in 2013, if the man were to recover, his extremely dubious claim to fame as the man hit by a trolley in M&S would be sufficient to see him eligible as a pick if he garnered the required obit. [[Some picks have really tested the limits of this rule and the game-runners patience this year).]
  • All entries must be posted in this thread or PMed to me, they'll then be posted in this thread as one post for each game year.
  • The onus is always on the player to check that the person in question is alive at the start of the competition and replace them within the 24 hour leeway allotted, if this is not something you are willing to do please provide up to 5 substitutes. Even if you're convinced all you're players are breathing you may wish to provide substitutes just to be safe (a player who shall remain nameless provided a pick who died in 2005 in their team, we are all capable of making mistakes - better safe than sorry)
  • Blatant plagiarism of another persons team, in the eye of the game runner, is punishable by expulsion and a 5 year ban on entering the competition.
  • Entries submitted on the 31st December may suffer abuse from a stressed host via PM response.

 

Scoring System (Last Updated 6 March 2016)

  • 1 Point for each day of the year that passes before your celebs death (if they die on the 10th of January you are awarded 9 points for example) up until the games close at midnight on the 31st December.
  • 250 point bonus if one of your "celebrities" dies on 31st December in that game year (i.e a 31st death will score 614 points in a normal year or 615 points in a leap year rather than the 364 or 365 points it would normally accrue)
  • Pick 1 of your celebrities as a wild card to double the points for that pick upon their death. (i.e if they die on the 9th January you'll get 16 points). Wildcards are calculated before the 250 point bonus, meaning are 31st December wildcard will score 976 points not 1228.
  • 500 point bonus if your entire list perish of this mortal coil in the game year.


So let the games begin who do you think will very nearly make it to next year but alas lose out?

For those of you teetering on the edge of your seats waiting for PMs about borderline FFBI candidates (of which there are a number that surprised me for being okay this year).

 

And as a reminder, as it's come up a few times this year being famous for being old is famous for something aside from their illness, as being old is not of itself an illness.

 

The good news is they've all - across all 35 (jeez) teams submitted so far fallen the right side of the narky "famous for something outside of there illness rule". Typewriting monkey had this reaction at one particular name not requiring a return to sender:

Thanks, but it was pretty much a C+P job from the OP of the last thread which I've been updating for 5 years. I suppose at least with a new thread people actually look at it. :D

 

Edit: I need to make up the old list of the losts at some point as well, fell out of favour with the cramped thread but wouldn't mind them in the OP.

I know I said the last reminder would be the only reminder, but with the move to a new thread it seems only fair to give one last bother/call to those who entered last year and haven't entered yet for next year. As with the last call, if you're waiting til NYE just ignore this.

 

 

I'm yet to receive entries from the following people who entered last year:

 

@The Dead Cow

@FujimoriNoMorey

 

@Grigori

 

@Sean

 

@mr.whit

 

I've not checked the activity status of these accounts, so apologies if I'm calling dead people to arms. 

 

You have roughly 32 hours to assemble your carkers.

@Toast is the only one of the 7 ever presents from 2018 not to enter for 2019 yet - would be a shame to lose you. (for those interested Book, CaptainChorizo, Death Impends, msc The Unknown Man and Whoaml are the other 6 - that's half of 2014's entrants, not bad).

Freaky, working on this when the notification came up on screen.

Can confirm I'm not dead.
