Welcome Gamesers to the Games Ring of Honor! In the GRoH you can bring your posting disputes onto the field of battle, challenging your fellow posters to defend their bad opinions in earnest. Straight head-to-head games, races, speedrun time trials, whatever challenge you can dream up you can issue!

Some rules:

1) THIS IS FOR FUN! This is a way to get people to play more games together and tie posting about games to actually playing them. This is not a replacement for issues a mod/admin would usually handle, please report those as normal.

2) Place whatever bets you want on the outcome, but our plan is to keep it on the honor system. Mods probably won't enforce this, but may if it's really funny and we remember. Wager serious outcomes at your own peril!

3) While not a requirement I would like to encourge people to stream these throwdowns - ideally these will be a sort of community event.

4) Win and lose graciously. Also be understanding if someone declines, you never know what is going on in their life outside the forum.

Feedback/ideas are encouraged!

If a challenge is issued but you cannot come to an agreement on a game, both sides can post a few and myself or another mod/IK can randomly roll to determine what you play. In the interest of getting things rolling I am making the first official GroH challenge to ShallNoiseUpon!

I'm in if we can find a time that works between timezones. I'm on Central European Time.

I loved the old Let's Race thread in Let's Play, this is a great idea!

Edit: Oh poo poo, does "I accept any challenge" mean I get to make the rules? Let's just do our old goon rules then. I can play late my time monday-thursday next week or this weekend

Feel free to come up with just about any settings string you want. I feel confident in my ability to complete any seed that uses glitchless logic and doesn't have any of the real difficult tricks enabled. Your evenings are my mornings, so how about this Saturday? Say, 7:30 PM your time, with a settings string likely to produce a sub-4 hour seed.

Ill take you on in 2k3 or 2k4, whichever one I own a copy of (at least, I think I own a copy of one of them). As a mac-haver at the time I never got to play them much but they kick rear end. No promises I won't lose horribly though.

Also, I guess we need to have a forums grudge to do this?

Also also the only thing I've ever tried to stream was an honor match of Destiny any my internet wasnt up to it so if anyone has any tips on minimum internet speeds needed to stream I'm all ears.

2k4 is pretty much 2k3 but with More Stuff. I definitely have a CD copy and a steam copy of 2k4 but might have to try and dig up 2k3 as well.

If you need me to say some mean words or something so we can kick off a grudge I can probably also manage that. I have a setup that can stream, too.

The free remake they half did but abandoned is really good, if lacking a little in content.

Those are pretty much standard settings we used to play with some logic changes, shopsanity and horseback archery 2 in (I know how much you hate this one and if this is supposed to be a grudge match here's your grudge) and most noticeably Ocarina of Time is an excluded location so we know it won't be an all dungeons seed, for the sake of making this quick.

nah HBA is fine, you have me confused with someone else

my grudge is sun's song logically required for night skulls

e: you also accidentally removed the item Zelda throws (i.e., the ocarina itself) from the pool, not the song you learn from picking it up (listed as "Song from Ocarina of Time")
