Crap, I've got another heavy hitter I'm up against. This tournament definitely pushes me mentally. This is going to be tough, but man it's fun.

J-Wong, may God be with you on that battle!
I have Deth who beat several heavyweights already! Yikes, I have a feeling my lucky streak will come to an end.
I can only bring my best to the table.

dfbovey

Alright, it's been brought to my attention that mana-boozy and Hanzou should be flipped in rank. I know Chris Major and Hanzou already exchanged subject, but we need to fix this issue.

Hanzou picks the topic in a match with MrBoJangles.

LOL, yeah, this is quite a challenge for us. New to the game, and now I get a taste of how hard this is going to be.

Dave,
I look forward to your topic, I'm sure it will be fun to do. Not that you need it, but good luck, sir. I've got to really shape up, and this is an awesome way to do it.

dfbovey,
I know it's really hard to keep up with all of this stuff, but I do want to thank you for the work you're doing to keep this running. It's an awesome opportunity for us to really push ourselves and improve (and especially learn from our mistakes).

Wow! That was some of your best work!
I wish you luck in your battle.




Wow, I'm champ! This title has a lot of weight to it.
I have to up hold the prestige that Archerion gave to the title, while handing it something of my own.
Now for the hard part; keeping the title.




:D Taro! I've been looking forward to this for a looong time:D

I knew that someday we would face off, and I told meself, "SELF, when you face Taro Mochi show no mercy! No matter how awesome Taro's work is your work will be moderatly better!"

I try to keep my ego in check even during internal monologs...

Anyway I'll be sending you the topic for our match. I think you may, or may not like it. :confused:

I've sent a PM to my opponent on saturday about this ranked match and I haven't heard back from him yet. I couldn't come up with a topic and told him that he could pick it (if that's ok to do). If I don't hear back from him by the deadline, what happens? I tried to look it up in the rules but there's no protocols listed in handling this type of situation. I also sent you a PM about this yesterday.



What do I do?

dfbovey

Well, as the higher ranked opponent... it is kinda your responsibility to make the topic.

If your opponent doesn't show then it's a win for you.

Ok then. Well I finally came up with a Subject and sent it to him. Now it's a waiting game.......

well to be fair, im still on rough thumbnails. i really feel bad for asaru, hes probably got a kickass pic ready and hes gonna come up against a WIP.

Popninja
08-13-2009, 06:47 PM
Yeah, I'm running on just a rough right now, too. But that's only because I keep doing street fights and they take my attention away from the August PRM.

I'm pretty much done with my piece for my Ms. Marvel SF with Toddoss, so all of my attention will go to my match with Archerion.

At least we had our subjects, though, for the last couple of weeks. That would suck to have my subject given to me less than two weeks before the due date.

Popninja,

FYI there are other obligations and responsibilities that take priority above this tourney and had i not looked at the list of ranked matches for the month LAST WEEK I would've thought I was out the league. If you would've taken an extra minute to look at the previous posts you would have seen that I contacted my opponent over the weekend about this and haven't heard from him or her since I gave shawny the option of picking the topic cause I couldn't come up with one at first.


After my match I SO want to put you in your place in a PUMMEL Street Fight. Do you even THINK before you post? Or are you ignorant 24 / 7 /365 ?

Even if you had an answer I wouldn't care to hear it. I wish you the best in your other matches but that's as far as it goes.

Thats a Call Out . So on 8/23 we expect to see a challenge posted between Doomsmith and PoPNinja .

I take a personal interest in this as I love both peoples work. I look foward to seeing this challenge.

PoP , your gonna need to bring work like your " Etrigan" and your " SuperMan Prime vs Xmen" Dooms can kill when he chooses ( like you need me to tell you that )

Dooms , know that PoP can bring a very serious game .( not that I have to tell you that )

Love you both , but I seriously want to see this particular matchup

I don't know what to tell you, man. The stips for this round were posted over two weeks ago. The higher ranks PM the subject to their opponent. It was on you two weeks ago. Is it that hard? Superman. Spider-Man. The Wonder Twins. Spongebob Squarepants. Anything really. Just throw it out there.

Yes, we ALL have lives outside of Penciljack. We all have other priorities. But how long does it take really to write a PM? I bet it takes less time than it did to write your little rant that I quoted.


Hey shawny,

August topic: Jay Jay the Jet Plane

See you on the 22nd! Peace!
I'm just sayin'.

As far as putting me in my place? Absolutely...anytime you're ready. Hell, I'll even pick the topic to make things easier for you.;)

We have had some guys forward their pieces to their opponent who was AWAY, and some were sent to Dave and they were missed because of a full IN box. So here is the SAFEST place to post your pic.

Yeah I had to drop out of the competition. :( davechisholm had one of the most awesome pieces I've seen in quite a while. I was so fired up to do something for it, but now I'm going to limp along most of this week, and spend most of Thursday and Friday putting something together for a streetfight. I know it's not really fair for me to get so much extra time, especially after seeing his entry weeks ago, but I think it's obvious that anyone would need extra time to go against that piece.

*and yay, I can post again!*

As I wrote Alfred earlier in a pm, I don't have anything worth posting, so I'm going to bow out of this fight and I have to bow out of the Pummel competition all together. I'm sorry Alfred, you did an awesome job.

slam
08-22-2009, 04:54 PM
i dunno johny, even if you only have a sketch, post it up. It would be a shame to let Alfred's piece left away in the closet. It's brilliant and deserves to be shown to voters...Look at Nickguy, who still put up some effort in finishing his piece even though he said he was uninspired. I think these ranked matches are a really good test for the real world. Quality is expected to be high and lots of people cant deal with it. Even me I'm struggling to come up with something worth posting.
just in case here's my WIP, I need to fix up some characters and detail and then maybe throw on some colors..how much time is left? I am on european time....

Mine's going to be pretty much in the same vein - - uninspired. But I won't bow out. It's just not worth the drop in rank to bow out.

I pre-apologize to Archerion, because he deserved my absolute best. I've decided that I probably won't participate in any more Street Fights unless they are subjects that I really want to draw. I basically ended up trying to squeeze my monthly battle in between my street fights. That won't happen again.

alfred183
08-22-2009, 05:26 PM
Pop, you should let me get even, though!! Maybe in a month or so?

In my opinion, nothing wrong with uninspired as long as you try and put a little effort into it.

Is it bad that I just can't wait to see who I'm matched up against next!?? MAAAAN I'm bloodthirsty haha

thordad
08-23-2009, 02:53 AM
On PSFs I think its to the discretion of the other challenger but I believe the rules are a bit more stringent with Ranked Matches . Technically 1 min over is a DQ but considering varying time zones varying clocks Im sure some leeway is given, but not much.

NO ONE WANTS A WIN BY DQ. ( unless they really hate their piece , this month I rather liked mine , dang it )

Well, unless there are special circumstances that Dave would have to take into consideration, all of the noshows have officially lost by forfeit and dropped 4 spots.
I have to admit to being surprised here, 6 noshow matches is the same number we had in the lightweights months.

Some friendly advice to my fellow pummelers;

Be wary of accepting street fights so close to your ranking match. I notice a lot of the no-shows did street fights very recently, and were probably out of gas for the main event. :skull:

Good advice. I found this to be true with my own piece this month. It didn't stop me from posting it, but not as much work went into it because of street fights.

And to anyone still working on their pieces, do so for your own enjoyment and satisfaction, but when you missed the deadline, you forfeited. Period.

But some of the street fight topics are far more interesting than
what is offered for the main event. I mean Pyschobilly would be
interesting for some people but I wouldn't be pumped to do
something artwise for that topic.

Tell that to Spidey, who after I said I hated his topic said he was having a blast doing his topic...only to end up bailing and pulling a no-show on deadline.

That ain't cool.

Granted I didn't directly ask for a change in topic, but I expressed my dislike for it enough that I thought for sure he would say, "Well, okay, let's do something different then." But he didn't.

Like Dri said, if you dislike the topic, be vocal about it. Me and Bojangles discussed a couple of topics, and we agreed on LXG.

What I'm saying is that if you got a week to go before your ranked match, and you're still accepting street fights while your ranking pic is still in the thumbnail phase, maybe you should consider working on your ranking pic instead.

Its not as easy as it sounds , I have been fortunate to have had three matches against heavyweights , you dont see most of them slugging it out in the streetfights . Manji , HadesIllustration , CBA , and Teratophile will take challenges they come across , but the bulk like to keep to their monthlies . Ofcourse you can call anyone out at anytime whether they accept or not is a different story but I havent had anyone turn down a call out .

It's also tough because there are borderline pros in the heavyweight division. Getting a win wouldn't be easy by any stretch.

I've had two streetfights so far, but it IS tough finding the time for them.

What exactly would be expected as commissioner?

Basically:

Re-order the ranks based on wins and losses from the previous month (Winners go up 1 in rank, losers down 2 in rank, no shows down 4 in rank. Overall record breaking the tie if two people land on the same rank).

And then post a thread like this one showing the match ups before the 1st of each month.

That would be the main responsibility.

If one will step up that is great ... but Dave is looking for help NOW. Besides I am the lightweight commisoner and I have two opportunities to move up this month alone. So do you think I should step down? Hey if you are volunteering by all means go for it though.

Edit: I don't mean to sound snotty but this is the 2nd or 3rd time Dave has asked the Middleweights for help. Trust me when I say it is a lot of work just to run
1 division let alone 2.

Winners go up 1 in rank, losers down 2 in rank, no shows down 4 in rank. Overall record breaking the tie if two people land on the same rank.

I will add the following to this
1) A drop of 4 for a NOshow ... and 2 for a pullout BEFORE the round starts

2) 2 noshows in a row and you are dropped to the bottom of the division and out of the league until you compete in at least 1 streetfight.

I would recommend waiting for Dave to respond to this thread till tonight ... I am not sure what he wants to do with the new weighins.

Also, at this point ... I am not even sure he KNOWS that he has help in the Middleweight division yet. I think Hanzou stepped up to the plate AFTER Dave went to work this morning, and he can no longer check the boards while he is there.

Don't worry TO much yet though. You still have like 25 or 26 days ... :D. We are just being overly energetic. These aren't even due till the first of the month

In order to count, the matches must be completed (polls closed) by the time the rankings for next month are solidified. Since the matches for September are likely to be posted tonight, your match vs. Thordad will probably have to count towards next month.

Also, Deth has been dropped to the bottom of the ranks since he has Noshowed in his last two ranked matches (Unless he pulled out of the July ones and I couldn't find any reference to it), and he will have to compete in a street fight to get back in.

Hanzou, I would double check your no shows (making sure that no one else has had 2 consecutive noshows in a RANKED Match. If there haven't been then I would say throw these up. If you don't hear from the previous noshows by say Sept 1st you can do some collapsing of matches to fill in the holes.
