The poll is now closed, and I think everyone can see the results? Not too sure. Anyway, it was 10 yes, 8 not sure but willing to try, and 1 no. So.. the alliances will be Black Mages + Thieves versus White Mages + Monks + Soldiers + Dragoons.

I'll be removing people from their previous alliances and re-adding them so be prepared for a bunch of LJ notifs, heh.

On a side note four members have been contacted regarding low participation and they've not responded, so they're being cut :( As before, however, if you missed the PM for whatever reasons and decide that you'd like to join again, all is needed is a PM or a comment somewhere to let me know. We don't demand participation but we definitely remove members who aren't earning points so that we get an idea of the team sizes.

Aaaaand Game 5 starts tomorrow!

So the mod team deliberated for awhile about the next game's alliances, and a point came up:

Black Mages and Thieves have yet to be friends!

The only balanced way this can work out, however, is the two teams versus the other four combined. And, in fact, if you take the scores of the previous game and apply them to this potential alliance, it's about even.

As Game 5 starts Nov 15th, I'm aware this is kind of late, but if you could respond to the poll regarding what you think about this potential alliance, it would be great.

Alliances!

For next game, starting Tuesday May 15th (hahaha any Diablo III fans? XD), the alliances will be:

Soldiers + Black Mages + Dragoons

versus

Thieves + White Mages + Monks


Team mods, feel free to collaborate and lead your teams with introductory/welcome posts for your new alliances. Maybe a new alliance name? XD

All invites should be sent out by tonight so there'll be some time for some bonding before the new game starts :D If you have not received an invite by May 14th, please contact me ASAP! Check your invites here.

If you're new to [livejournal.com profile] ff_land, here's a quick explanation: being in an alliance means that your teams would work together for the top spot. Your individual teams will still be ranked though!

You can post in your team community, but not in your allied teams' community. You may only view posts and comment on them.

As for current alliances, I will be removing everyone from the previous alliances... I should've thought this through awhile ago and gave you guys some time to say some goodbyes xD BUT, I thought you could do them here instead? Haha.

...I think that's about it? Yes? XD

Ready for Game 4?

GAME ON, BITCHES :D

Hello everyone~! I hope you enjoyed the results. Here are the score breakdowns courtesy of [livejournal.com profile] sunflower_mynah:

Graph version )

Text-only version )

And that brings us to our second topic -- alliances. We need to decide them before Game 4 can start, of course. I'll list the strengths and weaknesses of each team (as far as I know them), and a short description of the proposed alliances, and you guys can have a vote.

We're going to do something different this time around. Since we have 4 really strong teams, we've decided it's nearly impossible to have 3 alliances of 2 teams, because one of the alliances will automatically be way stronger than the other two, which kind of makes having a competition pointless. So for this game at least, most of the proposed alliances will be two alliances of 3 competing against each other. Like a final boss fight, I think someone told me.

Team balance analysis )

And with that, the alliance options:

Alliance proposals and polls )

I just tried to post two polls in one post, and it really Did Not Work, so, uh, please see following post regarding stamping question changes.

Hi guys! I'm sure you're sick of me by now, but. As game 3 started, and some people still haven't left their old alliances or joined their new ones, the members cut list is getting a small update, and I'm sending out a tiny reminder.

The following people have been added to the members cut, since they have not left their old alliances, and have not shown any activity in the past 2 months:

Monks

[livejournal.com profile] demuredreams
[livejournal.com profile] magicallymmm
[livejournal.com profile] zydoxis (I know you accepted the invitation to your new alliance, but I'd like some notice of whether or not you're actually around or just randomly accepting join requests, please?)

If your name is on this list, please reply to the Members Cut post if you wish to remain in [livejournal.com profile] ff_land

Another note on the members cut -- I've sent out PMs to everyone on the previous list, but, [livejournal.com profile] plastic_vinyl and [livejournal.com profile] lani_akalena have PMs disabled. If anyone knows a way to contact them, please let them know they're on the cut list.

Also! The following people on the cut list have left their old alliances, but have not notified me as to whether or not they'd like to stay in the game:

White Mages

[livejournal.com profile] suspensionpoint
[livejournal.com profile] thegeminisage

Soldiers

[livejournal.com profile] izumabakumatsu

Monks

[livejournal.com profile] silvertigerx
[livejournal.com profile] xmancharmx

Please drop a note so I know whether or not you're actually staying? Please?

---

Next up... The following people are not in danger of being cut, but have not left their previous alliances:

Dragoons

[livejournal.com profile] darklight90

Soldiers

[livejournal.com profile] crescent_dreams
[livejournal.com profile] thbogzdd

Black Mages

[livejournal.com profile] panda3035
[livejournal.com profile] shorlixa

If your name is on this list, please unwatch your previous alliance's community. I've already kicked you out. (Or, well, I'm kicking you out. Like. Now.)

---

And lastly, the following people have not yet joined their new alliances:

Soldiers

[livejournal.com profile] occelot
[livejournal.com profile] thbogzzdd
[livejournal.com profile] tjemd4

Monks

[livejournal.com profile] demuredreams
[livejournal.com profile] magicallymmm

Dragoons

[livejournal.com profile] darklight90

White Mages

[livejournal.com profile] kupobun

Black Mages

[livejournal.com profile] panda3035
[livejournal.com profile] shorlixa

Please accept your invitations here. Obviously I can't force you to join, but. Uh. Maybe I'll revoke your invitations if I get annoyed, if it gets long enough, and then you won't be able to join at all. :DDDD

And Z, it shows you still haven't accepted the White Mage comm invite... =D;

(Thieifes? I am proud of you guys. :D None on the cut list, and none hasn't left the old alliance or hasn't joined the new one. Hurrah!)

Hello everyone! This is your resident tonberry doing some stabbitying work! Everyone please read!

First of all! Alliances! I know, decoupling always makes me sad, too, but hey, it's a great chance to know more people better!

The alliances this time will be:
Black Mages and Monks
Dragoons and Thieves
Soldiers and White Mages

So. Uh. ...I'm very bad at writing these posts. Anyway, as mentioned, previous alliances are now broken, and we ask everyone to please leave their alliance's community. As Tako mentioned last game, she doesn't like having the members list mismatch the watchers list, so, please voluntarily leave your alliance by clicking on the appropriate link below, make sure the ticky box to also remove the comm from your friendslist is CHECKED and then remove it. Otherwise, we could kick you, but you'd still be watching the comm, which will look very strange on the comm membership list.

Black Mages: Please leave the heavenly_lances comm at this time. I know, team BBQ and all. I'm sorry! But now you get to be Team OTP, with poster couple Snow and... and... uh... Fang-the-black-mage. I know, right? *coughs*

Dragoons: Please leave the firaga_casters comm at this time. Bye bye, team barbecue! We get to be... uh, I dunno, team flying stabbity?

Monks: Please leave the curaga_casters comm at this time. I'm sure all that healing was great for your insane HP! XD And now you get to be with more mages!

Soldiers: Please leave the gil_stealers comm at this time. Please leave behind any shinies you might have left as you exit. You're now well on your way to forming a full grinding party with a tank and healer!

Thieves: Please leave the mythril_swords comm at this time. We'll all miss Breyzy's posts, I'm sure. D: Well, I still get to see them... But we'll get to meet a lot of new people, many of whom just recently joined!

White Mages: Please leave the raging_fists comm at this time. It'll be hard to top all that monk enthusiasm! But you'll get a new team of awesome tanks of really awesome!

If you have not left your allied comm by the time the second game starts, I'll boot you manually. But yes, we would prefer if everyone could help us out by leaving the comms before then. What, I'm not copy-pasting from Tako's post.

Second, members cut!

A members cut will be taking place on Monday, October 31st. If your name is on the list below and you'd like to stay in the comm, please comment here by then (just say "Here" or "I'd like to stay" or whatever). [livejournal.com profile] ff_land does NOT have an activity requirement, so it doesn't matter if you've participated recently or not -- if you comment saying you want to stay, you'll be kept. This is just to give us a more accurate idea of team sizes.

On the other hand, if you're reading this and you'd like to leave the community entirely, please first let me know, and then (similar to above) leave the following comms: your team comm, airship_lounge, ff_minigames, moogle_workshop, ultima_arena, and ff_eventsquare. This makes it easier for me to manage the watchers list. No hard feelings! :)

Members Cut List )

Notes:

1. I'm sorry, guys, I've been a little too lazy to dig through every result post and every AL/MWS entry and every comment for ff_classchange, so, uh. The members cut list was mostly based off of gil earned in this game. Most of the people on this list have absolutely 0 gil, but some have 100-300-ish, which means some have participated! Marginally! I'm pretty sure none of it was recent, but if it was, I'm very sorry for putting you on this list! In any case, a comment is all you need to stay in. <3

2. If you have not left your team comm by the time Game 3 starts AND you have not been active in [livejournal.com profile] ff_land for 2+ months, your name will be added to this cut list.

3. If you have accidentally left a community you didn't mean to and you need to be invited back, just let me know. :)

4. If team mods could occasionally remind people to leave their allied comms/check this member cut list, in case people missed this post or are on hiatus, that would be much appreciated. :)

5. Alliances will be re-invited at the start of Game 3, so as to... uh... ...I'm not sure what that will accomplish. Eek Tako do I invite the people we're cutting or not? Maybe I'll send out PMs then...

6. On an interesting note, if anyone wants to know, the number of active members for this game would be:
Black Mages - 10/11
Dragoons - 7/8 (or, 8/9 if we count [livejournal.com profile] thedrowned)
Monks - 6/11
Soldiers - 6/11
Thieves - 7/7
White Mages - 8/14

I've gotten some inquiries about this lately, so I think now is a good time to decouple the alliances and to start the members cut process.

First, decoupling alliances:
I'm going to ask everyone to voluntarily leave their allied team comm. I could boot everyone out myself, but I can't make people un-watch a community (and I'm kind of anal so I don't like having the members list mismatch the watchers list like that). SO: click on the appropriate link below, make sure the ticky box to also remove the comm from your friendslist is CHECKED and then remove it. Simple, yes? :)

Dragoons: Please leave the mythril_swords comm at this time.
Monks: Please leave the gil_stealers comm at this time.
Soldiers: Please leave the heavenly_lances comm at this time.
Thieves: Please leave the raging_fists comm at this time.

If you have not left your allied comm by the time the second game starts, I'll boot you manually. But yes, I would prefer if everyone could help me out by leaving the comms before then.


Second, members cut:
A members cut will be taking place on Thursday June 30. If your name is on the list below and you'd like to stay in the comm, please comment here by then (just say "Here" or "I'd like to stay" or whatever). [livejournal.com profile] ff_land does NOT have an activity requirement, so it doesn't matter if you've participated recently or not -- if you comment saying you want to stay, you'll be kept. This is just to give us a more accurate idea of team sizes.

On the other hand, if you're reading this and you'd like to leave the community entirely, please first let me know, and then (similar to above) leave the following comms: your team comm, airship_lounge, ff_minigames, moogle_workshop, and ultima_arena. This makes it easier for me to manage the watchers list. No hard feelings! :)

Member Cut List )

And as a final note, if you have accidentally left a community you didn't mean to and you need to be invited back, just let me know. :)

Edit: Oh another thing, if team mods could occasionally remind people to leave their allied comms/check this member cut list, in case people missed this post or are on hiatus, that would be much appreciated. :)

→ With 2 yes votes and 0 no's, Team Soldier and Team Dragoon will be joining each others' team comms.
→ With 4 yes votes and 2 no's, Team Thief and Team Monk will be joining each others' team comms.
→ With 2 yes votes and 4 no's, Team White Mage and Team Black Mage will stay separate.

Thank you all for voting. To Soldiers, Dragoons, Thieves, and Monks: I'll be sending the invites now and will post to your team comm when I'm done.

Yet another issue that I'd like to put to a community vote (can you tell I like polls?): [livejournal.com profile] roax suggested that it might be a good idea to couple team comms so that, for instance, Dragoons would join the Soldiers team comm, and Soldiers would join the Dragoons team comm so that there's less burden for the mods and people can communicate with and support the other team.

The mod team was undecided and wanted to leave it up to individual members to choose whether they wanted their own alliance to combine. So here is some more information about what the change would entail:

Thanks for all the opinions! Most people said they didn't mind either way, and several said they would prefer the alliances, SO starting from the next point update (Feb. 20) you will see the following teams with a combined point total:

SOLDIERS & DRAGOONS

THIEVES & MONKS

BLACK MAGES & WHITE MAGES


The team comms will remain separate, but if the heads of the teams or team members want to collaborate / cheer on the other team / come up with a fun name or other way to represent the alliance, that's fine with me. :) Good luck to all the teams!

Now that the first point update is up, I'd like to put forward a suggestion someone gave on the feedback post: to combine teams for the first game while the community is small.
