Call for Judgment: Order Matters

Times out 0-3. Failed by pokes.

Adminned at 20 May 2017 11:57:29 UTC

Add a rule titled “Oversight” with the text

List Of Matches:
#card vs Matt
#card vs Publius Scribonius Scholasticus
#card vs Sphinx
#Matt vs Publius Scribonius Scholasticus
#Matt vs Sphinx
#Publius Scribonius Scholasticus vs Sphinx

The order of the matches in the Final Bowl will be randomly decided by doing the following Atomic Action:
*Create a new list called the Official Match Roster.
*Roll a DICE12 in the GNDT. The number rolled in the GNDT corresponds to line N in List Of Names. If line N is already in the Official Match Roster redo this step, otherwise copy line N into the Official Match Roster.
*Make an official post titled “Official Match Roster” and paste the Official Match Roster into the body of this post.

The overseer of the Final Bowl follows the Official Match Roster by overseeing the Final Bowl match of the managers mentioned in a line, starting from the first line. After a match is completed the Overseer can oversee the match described in the next line of the Official Match Roster but not any other matches.

If the Overseer of the Final Bowl matches made a mistake calculating the power of a match, that can be pointed out in the match post. If there actually a mistake, then the overseer redoes every match in the order set for in the Official Match Roster that are affected by the results of the invalid match. Each team has a variable of redone which can be the values 0 or 1.

Example Match Roster:
1 card vs Sphinx
2 Matt vs Sphinx
3 Publius Scribonius Scholasticus vs Sphinx
4 card vs Matt
5 card vs Publius Scribonius Scholasticus
6 Matt vs Publius Scribonius Scholasticus

If match #1 is invalid, all of the matches which card and Sphinx play afterward are effected and any team which can change its power after playing (i.e. all of them but Publius Scribonius Scholasticus). So every match afterward must be redone. If match #3 is invalid, only #3 has to be redone, since Publius Scribonius Scholasticus’ team does not change after playing a match and that was the last match that Sphinx plays. This paragraph refers to the Example Match Roster above and not the Official Match Roster and it’s statements are not considered rules but merely an example to guide the Overseer if they need to redo a match.

Do the following Atomic Action to redo an invalid match:
# The lowest numbered match on the Official Match Roster that needs to be redone and has not been redone already is match A. If there is no match that satifies this condition go to step #4.
# For the teams playing match A, if their redone is 0, set their state to one second before they participated in this matchup when it was invalid.
# Oversee match A and go to step #1.
# Set each team’s redone to 0.

It’s in a new rule in case this one gets enacted before the other CfJs get enacted. The redoing thing is long to write out but simple to grasp and do, you don’t need to keep track of the redone variable as long as you know what you’re doing. I’d normally do this as a proposal, but this needs to get enacted ASAP to have any effect on the Final Bowl.

“The order of the matches in the Final Bowl will be randomly decided by doing the following Atomic Action:”
I think we might need someone to actually perform this action.

Sphinx is right, but also I don’t see why this is a CFJ.

CfJ-proposals (CfPs?) are the cool new thing now.

It’s a CfJ because the other CfJ which would start the Final Bowl on the 17th of May could become enacted at any time if Matt votes FOR on it. If this was a proposal it would need to wait at least 12 hours to be passed.

against should probably get rid of this
