[BULLETIN] Cage Matches

CAGE MATCHES

Have you the nerve to try?
Have you the need for speed?
Can you crank out quality code in no time at all?

Put your reputation on the line and step up to the plate.
This, good sirs, is the true test of coding.

Hello, Omnimagician. Welcome to the Cage Matches.
This is where your mettle will be pitted again another strong competitor whose wants to prove his worth as well.
The rules of this are simple: Make a game of said theme within the time limit.

For starters, you must send me a PM with your programming languages so I can add you to the roster.

Every (other) week, starting in October, two random people will be the contestants for that Cage Match.
A contestant has exactly 24 hours to reply. If a contestant does not reply, another contestant will be picked.
When both contestants have done so, the deadline is set a week or two from the top of the hour.
(Top of the hour means that if the PM is replied to at 8:23, the deadline is a week from now at 9. All times are in CDT (GMT -5.)).
The theme will be picked at random.
The language will be picked at random.
If the language is C or ASM, some code must be sent inside of the PM to assure that a contestant isn't over his head.
The result of the contest will be based a poll that the community votes on. (I will also be casting my vote.)
The winner gets fame, prestige, and a userbar.

That is all.

Oh wait, wrong place...

* Meishe91 puts on a Rick Astley trench coat, shades that say "The" on one side and "Game" on the other, and starts eating his bag of peanuts.

I don't think this topic was posted in Randomness Builderboy and Meishe91 <.<.

Sounds cool. I doubt I'll be able to contribute much but I wonder how it will goes. It would be nice to have some small contests from time to time.
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

Well there isn't exactly a lot we can say until he gets rules posted, so we are just prepping ourselves ;) Haha just kidding.

In all seriousness though, this really is a good idea I think. It will be good learning experiences and such too.

You should put it in the first post in case ppl think you randomly PM anyone. Some people may not be willing to participate and may see this as spam if you just plain PM any random person without asking their permission first.

Sounds cool! I might participate. (Though I've never made a game... ;D)
Can we request to only compete with (a) certain language(s)?

I would add that if someone wants to change the languages in which he wants to compete in to just send you a email saying that.

I can't allow that. The challenge is to program in the language that comes up. If you aren't good at a language yet, don't put it on the PM. You can always update your roster later. :)

Well I meant say that I only put TI-BASIC down for my languages but then later become proficient in Axe and want to start competing in that.

Or are we sending you PMs each time a contest comes around? Because it sounded like we send you one and then we are set for all contests, and its just a matter of getting chosen.

This sounds cool.  Unfortunately, I am very busy so I probably won't be able to do this.  But can we tell you a time frame? Say we only can do it in the summer or something?
