It's that time of year again!

Welcome to the Team Competition for the 2015 Winter Tour de Vizzed!

I'll be hosting this time around, and I hope to keep the team tournament as fun and competitive as ever.

This time around, your teams will be divided up by the month you signed-up on Vizzed.

You can find that information on your profile, right here:


As you can see, I'm on Team December.

The Teams

So obviously there are 12 teams; 1 for each month.

Each team be named as follows: (Yes, there are team names. Feel free to make layouts and whatnot to show team spirit!)
- The January Ice Cubes
- The February Waterfalls
- The March Kites
- The April Rain
- The May Flowers
- The June Sea Shells
- The July Dolphins
- The August Willows
- The September Squirrels
- The October Leaves
- The November Nights
- The December Penguins

I'll also keep up with how each season is doing, which I'll divide up like so:

Winter - November, December, January
Spring - February, March, April
Summer - May, June, July
Fall - August, September, October

It's not exactly aligned with the months of the real seasons, but it's easier to remember and works well for this competition.

----

As for the prizes!

10,000 Viz
If your team wins and you make the top 3 overall in the Tour De Vizzed

5,000 Viz
If your team wins and you make the top 5 overall in the Tour De Vizzed
or
If your team gets 2nd and you make the top 3 overall in the Tour De Vizzed

2,500 Viz
If your team wins and you make the top 10 overall in the Tour De Vizzed
or
If your team gets 2nd and you make the top 5 overall in the Tour De Vizzed
or
If your team gets 3rd and you make the top 3 overall in the Tour De Vizzed

Don’t forget to let Davideo7 know if you qualify for one of the prizes once the competition ends!

---

I’ll be updating soon after the results are posted for each day in this following thread:
https://www.vizzed.com/boards/thread.php?id=83297

You can see how well you're doing for the current TdV day here:
https://www.vizzed.com/boards/tourdevizzed.php

Ask questions, root for your team, or point out any errors (gasp) you find!

Let’s keep this thread fun and spam-free.

Like I did with the summer Team TdV, I'll end with the words of Aragorn from Lord of the Rings.

Yep, he said this:

“A day may come when the quality of posters fail, when we forsake the TdV rules, and all get DQ’d, but it is not this day! This day we compete! By all that you hold dear on this good site, I bid you good luck, competitors of Vizzed!”

Waterfalls.



Hell yeah.



Won't be getting many points, but I'd like to see my team win.



Clever idea.



Good luck to all

I wonder if month of registration has anything to do with people's activity levels. We can observe the numbers and surmise away at the end of the month!  

Great job EM, and thanks for taking on the task!  Go team August Willows!  (I love willows! )

Were those random team names, by the way? haha!

Singelli : Actually, that would be a nice little bit of information to know. I'm interested in seeing the results too. 

I was interested in knowing how the teams would be set up, but now I am not as excited. For some crazy reason, I thought you guys might actually use my idea that I mentioned in chat while you guys were trying to figure out it. 

Now I just need to find somebody to make me a waterfall layout.

thing1 : mohammedroxx3 made a waterfall layout quite a while ago, maybe you could ask him if he could send it to you. I'm pretty sure you won't be able to find it in the layout shop since it's old and not popular.

I'm curious... what was your idea?

Singelli :

Thanks! and they were all actually pretty random!

They were all meant to fit the month in some way though, and they're all nature-themed, so it wasn't -completely- out of the blue.

thing1 :  Even if numbers magically showed one month swamping the other.... the numbers would be correlated but meaningless. There's a stats term for it, but I can't recall it at the moment. I tried a quick google search but couldn't find it either.  Basically, correlation does not imply causation.

Singelli : Oh, I know it doesn't matter at all. But who doesn't love useless information, am I right? 
EideticMemory : I suggested using the first letter of the username. But, since there are 26 letters, I said to make an even 9 teams of 3 letters per team, that symbols and numbers could make the last spot. ... So, for example, 
Team ABC, 
Team DEF, 
etc. 
TEAM YZ# 

I mean, sure, shuffle the letters around so every team would have an equal shot, but still. 
PacmanandMariofan : I've already asked Singelli to make me a layout. I'm very picky with my layouts, and Singelli knows how I like them.

Interesting. The first letter of the username was in fact used for the January 2014 TdV, but your idea is different enough to be possible for a future TdV. Thanks for sharing.

hah. There is almost no way I will be able to contribute. If I could access Vizzed from work I totally would post during my lunch break and stuff but because of the games it's blocked. I don't have enough time in the evening to set aside either =/. It would be fun to participate though if I had the time.

Dolphins are very friendly and majestic creatures... you can forget that noise. This is gonna be a blood bath! Three cheers for the deadly blood-soaked Dolphins!
If you want to know if I'm competing, just check out my "title" over on the right. That should clear things up.

EideticMemory : I feel the need to reply to your quote from The Lord of The Rings with a quote from the LOTR-The Two Towers. It's From that one Orc, you know the one, I think his name was Carl.

thephantombrain :

It's okay if you're posting slowly. You're just letting your team shareee the loaaadd.

Or if you wish to take the words of that elf lady from LOTR-the Fellowship of the Ring:

Even the slowest poster can change the course of the TdV.

I think that it's so strange that my least favorite season is summer yet I'm a member of Team July. I understand why I'm on that team but it's still strange to me.

thing1 : ewwwwww, that's just gross! I hope you don't expect your layout to be a bloody waterfall! LOL

Also, I doubt I'll have much time to compete. Green should be pretty easy for me every day, but I don't have the time or energy for much else.  Especially since one of my goals this year is to limit leisurely online time to 90 minutes or less.
