I'll agree with you on that.

@  -Wildstrike- : (25 May 2020 - 03:39 PM)

I fugured

@  Steevy Maximus : (25 May 2020 - 01:37 PM)

I'm actually sad Cyberverse won't get another season. 2 and 3 (of what I've seen) have REALLY nailed it in being fun little actions shows, like the Sunbow series.

@  Rycochet : (25 May 2020 - 01:00 PM)

Yes.

@  Maximus Ambus : (25 May 2020 - 12:52 PM)

I'm waiting for Animated season 4. Am I insane?

@  wonko the sane? : (25 May 2020 - 11:22 AM)

I'm waiting for the next season to show up on netflix.

@  Sabrblade : (25 May 2020 - 10:59 AM)

Many of us have already watched the rest of the Cyberverse episodes since the whole third season aired in the UK last September.

@  -Wildstrike- : (25 May 2020 - 10:18 AM)

*9th

@  -Wildstrike- : (25 May 2020 - 10:17 AM)

I just saw the 8th episode... omg

@  Bass X0 : (25 May 2020 - 01:28 AM)

Already seen it online.

@  -Wildstrike- : (24 May 2020 - 09:42 PM)

Who's excited for tomorrow? The only thing that makes Monday worth it is the Cyberverse episodes .-.

@  wonko the sane? : (24 May 2020 - 12:30 PM)

Welcome. I just came into that trick myself recently, so happy to share.

@  Nevermore : (24 May 2020 - 12:05 PM)

Thanks, wonko the sane? for the tip with the cloning. That helped a lot!

@  -Wildstrike- : (24 May 2020 - 12:02 PM)

Heheh.... yes... I don't think a sniper would be very good at making a vaccine... 0.0

@  Nevermore : (24 May 2020 - 11:48 AM)

All right! Cloning my old HHD to an SSD and then swapping out the drive was successful, it would appear. Finally.

@  Bass X0 : (24 May 2020 - 11:30 AM)

Scientist Perceptor is. Sniper Perceptor less so.

@  -Wildstrike- : (24 May 2020 - 10:51 AM)

Perceptor would be more responsible.

@  -Wildstrike- : (24 May 2020 - 10:48 AM)

Oof x~x

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 May 2020 - 10:45 AM)

He'd cure the virus, but he'd probably commit at least two crimes against nature and weaponize a third in the process.

@  -Wildstrike- : (24 May 2020 - 09:39 AM)

'Horrible consequences' would most likely happen with Brainstorm...

@  -Wildstrike- : (24 May 2020 - 08:16 AM)

Totally. And Percy's not even human. XD

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 May 2020 - 06:50 AM)

Can't do much worse than our current government, I say go for it.

@  Sabrblade : (23 May 2020 - 10:13 PM)

Little do we realize that the Perceptor in question is the Mini-Con combiner. :p

@  -Wildstrike- : (23 May 2020 - 10:11 PM)

He would!!!

@  -Wildstrike- : (23 May 2020 - 10:11 PM)

Horrible consequences? I... Doubt that would happen.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 May 2020 - 09:55 PM)

Even if he would come up with the answer by tomorrow.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 May 2020 - 09:54 PM)

I'd rather not deal with the horrible but unintended consequences of that.

@  -Wildstrike- : (23 May 2020 - 09:52 PM)

Lets let Perceptor make a vaccine for COVID-19. Who agrees with me :)

@  -Wildstrike- : (23 May 2020 - 08:43 PM)

I'll take your word for it. =D

@  TM2-Megatron : (23 May 2020 - 08:42 PM)

I can't think of any instance where sanitizing a film is a good thing.

@  -Wildstrike- : (23 May 2020 - 06:42 PM)

@  Steevy Maximus : (23 May 2020 - 06:39 PM)

I'm watching Predator on Starz! That means it has all the language and gore uncensored!

@  Sabrblade : (23 May 2020 - 04:23 PM)

*grabs popcorn*

@  -Wildstrike- : (23 May 2020 - 12:49 PM)

*watching everyone argue* O^O

@  fourteenwings : (23 May 2020 - 10:22 AM)

By that logic we might as well just get rid of the Shoutbox wholesale! I'd rather have like 3 or 4 things stuck for a week or so than one person dominating the whole thing (no offense Nevermore).

@  PlutoniumBoss : (23 May 2020 - 03:30 AM)

I would argue that "full of something one doesn't read" and "devoid of reading material" are functionally identical at the end-user level. :D

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 May 2020 - 07:58 PM)

If it emptied, it would become empty.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 May 2020 - 07:53 PM)

It would be the same effect as if the shoutbox simply emptied once or twice a week.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 May 2020 - 07:27 PM)

I don't see how having walls of the same guy on top whenever I go to any page on this site is "refreshing".

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 May 2020 - 06:10 PM)

I don't know, I find the occasional flushing of the box to be refreshing.

@  Telly : (22 May 2020 - 04:20 PM)

but its gets annoying seeing a wall of text from him that takes up most of the shoutbox

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 May 2020 - 03:53 PM)

Eh, that's just Nevermore.

@  fourteenwings : (22 May 2020 - 12:11 AM)

@Nevermore: Good rule of thumb is if you feel like you need not just multiple statements but also multiple shouts to make a point, best just make a thread.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 May 2020 - 05:36 PM)

Dude, do you just, not know when to stop?

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2020 - 03:35 PM)

Instead of "I have only ten hours to get all my stuff from place A to place B", it's more like "I temporarily stored 90% of my stuff in easily accessible place C in my spare time, so now I have ten hours to get the remaining 10% of my stuff over to the new place before permanently saying goodbye to the old place".

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 May 2020 - 03:33 PM)

At these point you two are just repeating what you already said.

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2020 - 03:32 PM)

Again using my "moving apartments" analogy. If you can store the stuff you don't immediately need for everyday life somewhere else, it reduces the critical time of permanently switching your primary base of residence over to the new place because there's less stuff to move when the time comes.

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2020 - 03:30 PM)

Well, my main point is that it will speed up the system migration so I have A) less system downtime because there are fewer files to transfer before the new system can be up and running and B) it reduces the risk of something going wrong during the system migration.

I'm not eligible to win, but here's my bracket anyway:

 

bracket-mine.jpg

 

I'm predicting a surprisingly strong showing for Armada Sideways, based on how popular the guy seems to be around these parts, and because of the shocking Computron/LioKaiser finals last year. But I'm saying Overlord still takes the win, because, well, I want Hasbro to make me an Overlord. I want Takara to reissue me one, too.

Ok, here we go!
 
I really, really wanted to put a push on for Pointblank. Then I found out who he would have been up against in Round 2.
 
Oh well...

 
You don't think he can beat Slapdash?  :)

Heh! :p

I have a feeling that Overlord is gonna tear through the early brackets like he tore through Super Ginrai, Garrus-9, Springer's face, and the Lost Light!

I'm not a man of many words.  When I do have something to say, though, I'll try and make it worth your while!

Glad to see this is continuing, I'll fill out an entry. Will probably track in an excel spreadsheet again too (should be easy to modify last year's).

 

Are you planning to score it 1 point for every matchup regardless of round? Really should make each round double points of the round before it... otherwise the total points are already half over after the first round and there's not the benefit there should be to correctly picking the winners who go far. That's how pretty much every real March Madness bracket works, anyways....

 

I'm super stoked that you're on board for it again this year!  I'm pretty much planning to crib your Excel sheet for scoring this year, but let's see if we can't just coordinate that so we're not both doing it.  Also, your analysis and interesting facts about the popular and interesting trends from the submissions was awesome!

 

For scoring, we should probably put this in the first post, but we'll do the following, similar to last year:

Vector Sigma 64 - 1pt

Transforming 32 - 2pts

Cesium 16 - 4pts

Elite Guard 8 - 8pts

Functionist 4 - 12pts

Cybertron Championship - 16pts

 

This is the way the annual basketball tournament bracket I play in scores things.  It's good because it ramps up the points for later rounds, but isn't a straight doubling from one round to the next, which means you can't just win it all by only picking the right final four or the champion.  You have to get a bunch right earlier in the contest too, so it really rewards overall bracket correctness.  In many cases picking the right loser is just as important as picking the right winner, and keeps interest higher throughout the contest while lots of other scoring setups become totally pointless after the first two rounds for all but a small handful of people.


ALERT: Everything is fine.

Well, uh, the one side says brains and the other says brawn. I assume we were supposed to do a battle of smarts with the left side brackets and a battle of might with the right side brackets? I guess I should confirm this before I submit...

It's going to be popular vote again.  "Brains" is because they're all head- or brain- masters.  "Brawn" is because that's a typical other half of that duel.  Brains and Brawn are themes, not the intended basis for voting.  Then again, people base regular NCAA basketball brackets on way weirder things.  Some by jersey color, some alphabetically.  So you could build a bracket in weirder ways if you want.  But the polls will be open and basically amounts to "who's better liked by Allsparkers who vote on this?"  But as we saw last year, trying to guess the whims of the board won't necessarily get you a win either.

I will admit I voted for the Seacons winning just becuase 'combiner team vs single dude' seems like it'd only end one way til them vs Pm Optimus.

Maybe you just need to start campaigning. Hey, it's just a popular vote, all you have to do is convince other people that Crosshairs should be their guy.

Here's my bracket for this round

 

OrionsMayhembracket.jpg

 

I based my picks upon the fact that I felt that the powermaster and Targetmasters were at a bit of an advantage with having a two-3 man team vs the Headmasters kind of being a bit of a symbiotic relationship. I know not exactly but it's my bracket.  I view Brainstorm and Mindwipe being front runners with their abilities until they come up against a more formidable foe. The brawn side was a bit tougher to choose but in the end I felt Crosshairs' experience be it not quite as much as Primes but still fighting with Prime Kup and Ironhide in the tough days made him a worthy foe and after beating Prime, Prime did the honorable thing by lending Crosshairs his powers.

 

It's a fantasy world and I can dream.  Go Crosshairs
