If any of you have ever watched Pokemon, this event is a trivia game based on Who's That Pokemon! I will be posting out blackened out Espers and each team will have to guess who it is!

Dat Rule List!

Each team can only guess ONCE per Esper, so be organized with your teammates!
I will be taking the FIRST submission of a guess from each team
Mark submissions in spoilers, if you don't I will dock points from your team
A correct answer for an Esper will award 1 point
There will be BONUS ROUNDS, worth two points!
Each Esper shall have at least 5 hours for guessing, this event should last around 3 days, and should feature most of the Espers.
Format Guesses like such ##GUESS(Esper#): GUESS



WHO'S THAT ESPER? ESPER 1!
37316

Just so there's no confusion a guess for this would be formatted like this:
YOMAMA!

I really wish I was allowed to guess for these, but sadly, I must sit this round out lest I embarrass myself by guessing incorrectly or something.

Again everyone was correct! The esper was... Hashmal!

Since different people have guessed I have be not lazy and organize by team scores now!

Question: can I participate in this bonus rounds since I have no sweet clue what the answers are on these ones?

Someone needs to pick up the slack for my team.

Goldenboko
09-26-2012, 04:19 PM
Considering you didn't make the bonus questions like you did all the others, yes you can participate in the bonus questions!

Formalhaut
09-26-2012, 05:00 PM
urrr, my God, this symbol gives hardly anything away.

P.S: I have to check this thread so frequently, I missed Hasmal...

The correct answer was Belias! For people saying that they didn't have any idea they all got it right haha. This bonus round was worth 2 points!

Kinda looks like Zodiark but I think it might be Chaos.

Pete for President
09-27-2012, 08:36 AM
CHAOSSSS.

Huckleberry Quin
09-27-2012, 11:27 AM
CHAOS. *screams of terror*

Formalhaut
09-27-2012, 05:04 PM
Oh, this esper has a very distinctive appearance.
Chaos, Walker Of The Wheel

Goldenboko
09-27-2012, 06:05 PM
The correct answer to this question was Chaos! Good tries everyone!

Also FFIX does not get a point this round! Quin you were correct, but Depression Moon had already answered incorrectly! One guess per team! This creates a three way tie for third place! :O

This event will probably last 2 days longer than originally expected due to my inability to get three espers up a day! I'm going more for a certain number of espers and less for time on how long this event will go.

Score
1. FFX................................ ...5 *scored by Pete For President*
2. FFXIII.............................. .4 *scored by Formalhaut*
3. FFT....................................3
3. FFIX.................................... 3
3. FFVI..................................3 *Scored by Jiro*

Esper 5 time!

I love this game. xD

I am so not used to BB coding... it's been far too long:

A Flipped Zeromus. This one had me take a second look

Goldenboko
09-28-2012, 03:23 PM
Quinny and Formal score points for their respective teams as the Esper was Zeromus!

This is like those ink blot things you see in therapy.

Zalera and his girlfriend

Slothy
09-28-2012, 04:44 PM
Looks female so I'm going to say Mateus. Tough to be sure, but there aren't many female summons in FFXII and that definitely doesn't look like Ultima.

Raistlin
09-28-2012, 05:02 PM
The feather-looking things make me think Zalera.

Karifean
09-28-2012, 08:52 PM
Zalera, the Death Seraph

Huckleberry Quin
09-28-2012, 11:21 PM
Zalera and his hostage! :onoes:

Goldenboko
09-29-2012, 05:44 PM
The correct answer was Zalera! We are down to THREE ESPERS! The last question was worth 2 points! With FFVI missing this they find themselves in quite a deficit, but it ain't over yet!

Score
1. FFXIII.............................. .8 *scored by Formalhaut
2. FFX................................ ...7 *Scored by Karifean*
2. FFIX.................................... 7 *scored by Quin*
4. FFT....................................6 *scored by Raistlin*
5. FFVI..................................3

Esper 8! Who's that Esper?

FINALLY. I've been so excited with this game, I was awaiting this next esper with glee:



Adrammelech, also known as one of the most useless espers there given the effort obtaining it

Addramelech

Slothy
09-29-2012, 09:20 PM
Yeah, realized as soon as I posted and checked other answers that I was wrong on that last one. Damn it.

Formalhaut
09-29-2012, 09:23 PM
Yeah, realized as soon as I posted and checked other answers that I was wrong on that last one. Damn it.

It's an easy mistake, I was somewhat torn between Mateus and Zalera, both espers have female hostages.

Jiro
10-01-2012, 06:30 AM
Addramelech

Spewing that I missed a couple of guesses, I forgot all about it.

Goldenboko
10-01-2012, 12:29 PM
Correct answer was Addramelech trying to get out last esper will tally numbers later! For now, ESPER 9! Who's esper is this UP SIDE DOWN GLYPH OF?

37394

Excuse how crap it is I don't know how to use any of my Mac's editors yet :p

Huckleberry Quin
10-01-2012, 12:48 PM
Hmm. I'm thinking it's Ultima.

Jiro
10-01-2012, 12:58 PM
Process of elimination suggests... Ultima? Goddamn I don't know xD

Goldenboko
10-01-2012, 03:35 PM
Point total not including this last question!

Score
1. FFXIII.............................. .9 *scored by Formalhaut
2. FFX................................ ...8 *Scored by Shuana*
2. FFIX.................................... 8 *scored by Quin*
4. FFT....................................7 *scored by Raistlin*
5. FFVI..................................4 *scored by Jiro*

Sorry for the delay guys, I don't have a good excuse other than it's been a lot to keep up with these Olympics and I slipped up. This event will end tonight, it's been close and I can say this question will make or break everyone's chances.

Formalhaut
10-01-2012, 04:39 PM
Wait for me!

Hmm. looks female, so I'll go for Ultima

Jiro
10-01-2012, 04:59 PM
Darn, I would've liked a few more questions to hopefully get us back in the race but such is life!

Karifean
10-01-2012, 06:41 PM
Ultima

Raistlin
10-02-2012, 02:46 AM
That top part is definitely Ultima, at least now that Zalera's out. Plus there's just not that many left. xD

Goldenboko
10-02-2012, 03:33 AM
ULTIMA was the correct answer! That signals the end of this event! Being a glyph AND upside down this was worth 3 points!

Score
1. FFXIII.............................. .12 *scored by Formalhaut
2. FFX................................ ...11 *Scored by Karifean*
2. FFIX.................................... 11 *scored by Quin*
4. FFT....................................9 *scored by Raistlin when I wasn't looking"
4. FFVI..................................7 *scored by Jiro*

The unveiling of the awards...


The Gold Medal goes to Team FFXIII!
30 Points for Gold!

The silver and bronze medal will be split between FFX and FFIX! 11 points to each!

Huckleberry Quin
10-02-2012, 01:51 PM
I was desperately hoping Karifean wouldn't get here in time for this round. It was my last chance to redeem FFIX. I'm so sorry, everyone. :(

Jiro
10-02-2012, 02:22 PM
Can't we just have some points for trying? :(

Jinx
10-02-2012, 02:37 PM
YEAH QUIN

Goldenboko

Nope, but I can give you a consolation tissue. Adding points to main thread.

Jiro
10-02-2012, 03:15 PM
WE GOT SEVEN IN-GAME POINTS CAN'T WE HAVE THOSE? :( I JUST WANT TO BE ON THE BOARD WITH MORE THAN ZERO. WHY AM I CAPSLOCKING

Goldenboko
10-02-2012, 03:27 PM
WE GOT SEVEN IN-GAME POINTS CAN'T WE HAVE THOSE? :( I JUST WANT TO BE ON THE BOARD WITH MORE THAN ZERO. WHY AM I CAPSLOCKING

It is actually mere coincidence that FFX and FFIX got 11 points. Silver was going to be worth 15 points and Bronze 7. Since they tied for second they split Silver and Bronzes points (15+7)/2 = 22/2 = 11.

Formalhaut
10-02-2012, 04:46 PM
Yay! I've finally won something in my life!!!!! :jess:

Raistlin
10-03-2012, 12:06 AM
You mean I don't even get to keep the 9 points I scored? Poor FFT. :(

Jiro
10-03-2012, 04:42 AM
I know the medals had predetermined points awarded but I just want to be off zero man :( Look at poor Raistlin too! He's gonna cry :(

Formalhaut
10-03-2012, 07:40 AM
Hell, I only entered so that Team FFXIII had "something" on the score board. I wasn't expected a whopping 40 points!
