    The Writers' Study Presents:
    MAARC LXXX - The Second Place Tie-Breaker


    You have ONE vote in this tie-breaker


    Advertising of the competition is allowed. Inviting people to vote for their favourite AAR is okay.
    Asking for votes for a particular submission is not allowed and will result in disqualification.
    Breaking the rules will result in measures at the discretion of the Writers' Study Staff.



    Choose your favourite from:

    Submission 1 God's Justice

    The royal family is being targeted, the castles and cities of the Kingdom of Jerusalem are under threat, and the Saracens are as fearsome as ever. Good, hardened soldiers are as hard to find as allies, and the Kingdom is desperately short on men. A Crusade has ended, a Jihad has been called, and shadowy figures labor behind the scenes. Plots have been uncovered, events have been set in motion, and now it remains to be seen if the Crusaders will survive.


    Submission 2 Derc Plays Through World History

    An image heavy vacation through world history and all sorts of TW games. The Mongols have overrun Europe, Alexander the Great has destroyed Persia and now we visit the magical land of Japan in the era of the Genpei War.

    Lazy readers, this one is for you!



    Good luck to both entrants!

    This MAARC is INSANE!!! So much suspense and anticipation. I must say, I am sort of glad I didn't get the updates together to be included in this competition, because I imagine it is somewhat stressful for those in the mix. Good luck to you both, and I will be eagerly waiting to see how this all pans out!

    Wow, a revote after a revote! I definitely agree with you here Kilo11, it's something I never expected. Since there's two of us I'll sit this one out, best of luck Derc!

    Also, probably a little premature but congrats Welsh Dragon!

    I'm sorry guys. The ugly truth is you both lost. 2nd place just isn't good enough.

    But is second place actually worse? I've been thinking about this lately. Now if you're first, you have to sit out a month. So if you win first place in every competition, you can only win a maximum of twenty four points in a year. But if you come in second in every competition, you never have to sit out and can thus win thirty six points.

    Clearly second is better. (As Buzz Aldrin would say.)

    I don't care about any "price" whatsoever. What can I do with it?
    This is all about statistics (that has no weight at all) and a little fun every now an then. Nothing more.

    Not at all. For Swaeft maybe.

    Yes, a little premature. We're still waiting for the Florida recount... But thanks.

    So Skotos proved to us that the 2nd place is better than the 1st place. I now submit to you the evidence that third place is better than the second place, and that therefore, bronze is the best medal of all.
