Good point. Let's assume the first one can be pre-lit, and others will require lighting.

Shouldn't this be Match 5?

Uhhh...I hate to go Cap'n Obvious but there's no way bevis can throw a Molotov Cocktail when he's handcuffed. He's dead meat.

Dang. Can a mod change it to Match 5, please?

Braincase slices up a terrified bevischief, who also sets himself on fire.

That would seem to be a problem, wouldn't it? Tough break on the special factors.

If he had more prep time, he could possibly think about doing a two-hand overhead throw, but with only 5 seconds of situational assessment I'm not sure he'll have time.

Still can't be a fun 9-foot run for braincase, though, hoping he doesn't get engulfed in a gasoline fire.

I would keep my distance and let bevis throw wildly, then move in for the kill while he vainly tries to light the next cocktail.

Good point. Molotov cocktails have a short shelf life once you light them.

Even so, I'm not sure I'd run backwards. With almost no time to prepare, I think braincase's best option is to immediately charge before bevischief figures out the best throwing motion.

ROFL

That has got to be one of the worst special factors available. bevischief is a dead man

OUch. Love Bevis, but unless he gets lucky he's really fucked. He's handcuffed and has no time to figure out what the fuck is about to happen.

bevis got screwed. There is a solid chance that braincase could not know how to use that weapon and hurting himself with it though.

He's still got a backup knife. That's all he'll need against a handcuffed, flaming opponent.

I'm getting nervous for my match up. I guess I should make sure my affairs are in order.

I know how you feel. I've already written a will at age 22 just in case I end up going against an Uzi with a salt shaker.

Just curious, are you just making this stuff up off the cuff or do you have some kind of formula you are using to develop the match. I'm assuming the former.

the latter, actually. I set up a spreadsheet with a bunch of random number generators and lists and conditional formulae. in these early matches i'm having to do some minor editing for clarification, but that's it.

Man, this stuff is so bizarre I didn't figure their was any rhyme or reason to the selection.

It's definitely fun to read and imagine though. Nice offseason activity.

I don't know yet if we're just lucky that the scenarios have all been pretty fun and workable or if that's a fluke. we'll find out over time, I guess. I suspect at some point we'll end up with a scenario that is unworkable and i'll have to redo it or edit a workaround.

I think I spent most of the 91 seconds laughing at the handcuffed guy trying to throw a molotov cocktail. If I were sporting, I'd offer two out of three.

Hopefully the matches won't be this lopsided in the later rounds. This kind of stuff is probably expected in early rounds though.

Thanks for the title edit, unseen moderator. This type of divine intervention is how religions get born.

Calling it in favor of braincase in a rather bloody spectacle.

Why can't bevischief go two hand overhead throw?

He has probably had cuffs in before he knows that imo.

He wins
