[align=center]Welcome to
Earth's Special Forces
Forum Competition V (Five)
[/align]

Are you a frequent visitor of the ESF forums? Do you want access to THE ultimate headquarters of ESF information and want to see exclusive ESF news and media in advance? Well these competitions are here to give you free access to the Force Pit aka Phil's home.

Our forum regulars should remember the previous four forum competitions that were held some time ago.
- Competition I (Fight-Club) went to SaiyanPrideXIX
- Competition II (Banner-art) went to SuperSaiyanChris
- Competition III (Animated storytelling) went to Chakra-X
- Competition IV (Mapping) went to DragonDude

Some good news for those of you with no specific skills to speak of. This forum competition will be a live trivia event on IRC. How will that work you may ask? It's quite simple.

First, the basics :
Everyone who wishes to participate will need a copy of an IRC client, preferably mIRC. If you need a walkthrough of how to do this, please look here. After you have your IRC client up and running, you will need to join the channel #ESF-FComp on the gamesurge network. If you are unsure of how to do that, use this link to take you there automatically.

How to play the game :
Once you are in the channel on the designated date, you may notice you cannot speak directly in the channel. This is so the trivia questions are not flooded out by the responses. Participants will double click my name in the channel and PM me their answer to the current question. Players will have up to five seconds to PM me their answer for each question after the final choice has been presented. Also note that your name MUST match your forum username exactly. Do not use an alias, I do not want to waste time figuring out who people are. So yes, this means you must also be registered on our forums to participate.

What type of questions will be asked :
To start off, questions relating mostly to the forums and the ESF Team will be asked. During the next session we will shift to DBZ related questions. The third and final session will be general trivia. Beware, the general trivia will be quite difficult.

Here are some sample questions to help you understand what you'll be up against. Highlight below the question for the correct answer.

ESF/Forum:
Who are the winners of the previous forum competitions, in the correct order?
A) SuperSaiyanChris, Chakra-X, Dragondude, SaiyanPrideXIX
B) Chakra-X, Dragondude, SaiyanPrideXIX, SuperSaiyanChris
C) SailorAlea, imkonkong, Ness, CS_Land
D) SaiyanPrideXIX, SuperSaiyanChris, Chakra-X, Dragondude
E) There were no previous forum competitions

D) SaiyanPrideXIX, SuperSaiyanChris, Chakra-X, Dragondude

DBZ:
The sword Gohan pulled out is called?
A) X-Sword
B) Z-Sword
C) C-Sword
D) Excalibur
E) Tetsuiga

B) Z-Sword

General:
The scientific name given to our species is:
A) Homo ergaster
B) Homo erectus
C) Australopithecus afarensis
D) Homo sapiens
E) Homo terrestrus

D) Homo sapiens

How will this be judged :
The more questions you get right the more likely you will be win. I cannot simply say, "If you get X amount right or wrong you pass or fail." The worst scores will be disqualified, and the best will move on. To make it easier for me to tally the answers, please format your answer at least somewhat like this : Q1-C. That tells me, question 1 choice C.

I will go over the rules in the channel once again during each of the sessions.

When?!!?:
Session 1: January 13th, 2006 @ 2:00 PM (EST) & 9:00 PM (EST)
Session 2: January 14th, 2006 @ 2:00 PM (EST)
Session 3: January 15th, 2006 @ 2:00 PM (EST)

If you honestly cannot possibly make it to one of these times, PM me and we will see if we can work something out. Please do not bother PMing me if you simply do not want to come at those times. I don't care about your hot date or your clan match for title of uber leetest clan evar.

Prizes :
- Force Pit access / 1.3 early
- Your name will go up on the main page.


If the winner already has access to the Force Pit, they will then instead recieve 1.3 before anyone else. That means before the public, and even before the Force Pit folks get it! That's quite an incentive to pay into the Force Pit if you ask me.

Beta-testers, and moderators are welcome to participate. However, beta-testers will not be eligable to win for obvious reasons.

After each session, I will post the questions and answers in this thread. Anyone found to be cheating will be disqualified.


I hope to see many of you on IRC soon!

Damn, too bad i'll be on holidays though. Overlord is now my representative.

If he does not agree, ask his wife sean_ to slap him. This means quite a lot to me.

Ah yes, I forgot that a majority of our forum is still young and have normal school hours.

I will arrange a second session 1 at a later time for those of you unable to make the first. However, sessions 2 and 3 are on the weekends, no secondary session should be required.

/me edits main post.

Session 1: January 13th, 2006 @ 7:00 PM (GMT) & 3:00 AM (GMT)
(Witch would mean the 2nd session starts on the 14th, GMT time)
Session 2: January 14th, 2006 @ 7:00 PM (GMT)
Session 3: January 15th, 2006 @ 7:00 PM (GMT)


I think its something like that... Just double check.

Special circumstances such as that will be given some leeway. However, I will be able to tell if you lagout or simply quit, so don't try pulling any tricks.

If thats the case, then It's going to be 11 AM on weekends, and 6:00 Pm on normal.
