The GWJ cRPG Club Main Thread Part 2 - It wants to suck your blood.

We're approximately half way through the Pick 6 Round. We have a very clear favourite so far (no prizes for guessing which game!) but all the other games have received their far share of votes.

Don't forget this is just the 'pick 6' round, so don't hold back even if you have clear preference.

Results So Far:

Fell Seal: Arbiters Mark 13 Votes
WilderMyth 8 Votes
Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen 8 Votes
Greedfall 8 Votes
Skyrim 6 Votes
Wasteland 3 5 Votes
Star Traders: Fontiers 5 Votes
Kenshi 5 Votes

still plenty of time to add your own votes, don't be shy!

Dragon's Dogma
Wasteland 3
Fell Seal: Arbiter's Mark
Star Traders: Frontiers

For the record, my picks are:

Wildermyth
Skyrim
Wasteland 3
Greedfall
Fell Seal
Star Traders

All Kenshi haters will be tracked down and forced into rum production labor.

Wildermyth
Skyrim
Dragon's Dogma
Star Traders: Frontiers

So, with just over 3 hours to go before the end of the Pick 6 Round, we have the following results:

Fell Seal: Arbiter's Mark 15 votes
Wildermyth 10 votes
Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen 10 votes
Greedfall 9 votes
Skyrim 8 votes
Star Traders: Frontiers 8 votes
Wasteland 3 7 votes
Kenshi 5 votes

With Fell Seal well out in front it looks promising for the final, ranked voting. A late surge in votes also seems to have made certain that Star Traders: Frontiers will also be considered. Wasteland 3 still might be in with a chance but, alas, things are not looking good for Kenshi.

The clock is ticking.

Skyrim
Wasteland 3
Fell Seal: Arbiter's Mark
Kenshi

OK, Time. Is. Up.

With WizKid's final votes in, the results look like this:

Fell Seal: Arbiter's Mark 16 votes
Wildermyth 10 votes
Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen 10 votes
Greedfall 9 votes
Skyrim 9 votes
Star Traders: Frontiers 8 votes
Wasteland 3 8 votes
Kenshi 6 votes

Alas, Kenshi never quite got the support it needed and so it bites the dust. With both Star Traders and Wasteland 3 having the same number of votes, we will carry them both over into the final ranked choice voting. I'll get that set up now ready for the final round, give me a few minutes and I'll update the post.

Game 19 Ranked Choice Voting

In this round, please rank the following seven games in order of your preference for play. Please vote based on what you'll play with the group. You do not have to rank every game. This round of voting will run until 9pm GMT (4pm EST) on Sunday 3rd July. While this technically is a few days overdue, does give us a little more time for voting and, well, I'm in charge and you'll just have to respect my authority... It'll still give a couple of days for purchases via the steam sale!

How to Vote

1. Please rank the candidates in your order of preference of play, with the game you want to play the most at the top of your list.

2. You may rank as many games as you’d like. You do not need to rank all the games. However, keep in mind that a game in the bottom half of your ranking could win. Ranking at least all the games you would play is a good idea.

3. If you do not want to rank a particular game, please make sure to delete/omit it from your list. (Don’t simply leave the unranked games at the bottom of your list.)

How We’ll Determine a Winner - Elimination Style

Basically, we’ll keep running through the rankings, eliminating the game with the lowest number of top-preference votes, until we have one game that has gotten a majority of the votes. I could write a bazillion words to explain details, but this one-minute video does it better than that:

*For elimination rounds, if we have ties at the bottom of the voting pile, I'll break them by looking at second place votes, so we only eliminate one game each elimination round.

You know what to do.

Wildermyth
Star Traders: Frontiers
Fell Seal: Arbiter's Mark (cross play)

I'm already playing Fell Seal and I really want an excuse to buy Wildermyth. If club cross play happens I'll probably buy it anyway heh.

Dragon's Dogma
Fell Seal
Skyrim

I haven’t played any of these yet, so I won’t be skipping no matter which one wins.
