Season 6 pastebins:
Custom events pastebin:
A duos match is currently in progress.
And we're back. This may be one of our largest orgies yet for this season.
Ok, here's what I've come up with to track out vs games.
Just tell me what I'm missing.
The gator strikes again.
While it's cool to keep track of them, I really don't want this to encourage people to just try and finish the checklist as quicka s possible. They should be spaced out.
More parties and drinking.
We sorta did an /an/ game last night. /co/ could be comics vs. cartoons.
I think this might actually help limit vs. games to one each per season.
Guys, I usually think there's some things that should be said sooner than later, but this one.... I just noticed too late that we need to fix.
Look, this season has been going too awfully.
Plenty of hosts that try to take over things, then complain like idiots when their noms die (I'm looking at you, Roddor and Old Host), some hosts that don't listen to the anons, some anons who just try too hard...
We need to fix this shit before these games are damned for good.
And with that I mean that we should start doing these things again for fun, not for some stupid noms no one cares about but you.
...Well, that's that.
And also, I'm going to start involving again in the threads more, since some stupid shit has gone too much without being fixed.
Looks like Tak and Aresko's number card has been found.
Maybe we should lay off the themes for a while? A shit load of problems come out from them. From the repetitiveness, the bending of rules, the whining when a specific theme wins/loses.... Maybe we should stick to vanilla games for a while.
I wholly agree with you, I know I haven't hosted a lot, but I've been watching the games for a very long time, and the games went from a fun thing to do on the side to a bunch of waifufags competing to see which loli will be put in HG history. We rely on polls to do everything and we never let the hosts decide what we should do. The games are in ruin.
I will try to be by your side in this, and try to make the games great again.
The world's cutest bank robbers!
That's really questionable.
The only reason people want board vs board is because people are already getting bored of /co/ noms. But people are also getting bored with the crossovers.
We won't last much longer.
That's a yugioh reference. An archetype in Zexal that were fragments of Astral's powers and memories and took form based on the holders initial desires. I mainly added it as Zexal takes place in a city and I needed more events, but I could remove it if enough people dislike it.
The only issue is that.... you're becoming like those tripfags that no one really wants, ok?
It's ok to say "damn it, my nom chocked" but not really ok to say "I should off myself/When will this shit stop?" when you know RNG is the reason why noms die.
Thanks man, it's just that this season, we just had our main problems fleshed out. Not even I couldn't do anything at this point.
That's not really an issue, except when it goes overboard.
Also, another thing is... we have too many hosts already, and there are too many problems with some anons that wanna go MUH Waifu.
I actaully would be up for it too, I dunno about you.
...I actually thought that they were going to last way less.
I thought finishing at season 8 would be great.
Well shit, sorry for not saying nothing until now, man.
Yes, if we want change, we need everyone to UNITE and stop being such idiots.
I don't think I'll come back. I came in around the time the games were getting worse and never helped. I've been depressed IRL lately and I've been letting it affect my attitude here. I'm sorry to anyone I've made upset. Bye. I hope the games will get better again in the future.
Anyways, I'd like to say that we should really stop consulting strawpolls like they are the ultimate guide. I think the host has just as much power as the anon, and the host should always, at least once in a while, have the power to do what he wants if what he wants is good. Also, too many crossboard battles, nobody cares about /co/ vs /whatever/.
Nope, still off the mark.
The games haven't been all smiles and sunshine since Season 1. It's been this bad since after 4.
The drama comes from the fact that people take this fucking game too seriously (and I guess I'm guilty of this as well).
The point of this isn't to win and be better than anyone else. The point of the Games is to get into wacky RNG situations and cry for the nom who loses everything at the last second and have fun. HGS is for fun, not for drama, but when people take something seriously the Drama begins to imbalance the fun.
Jesus christ, we aren't gonna do crossover battles against everything and everyone. Do we really need a battle against /s4s/ or /diy/?
About crossover battles, I say we limit them to 3 per season.
The fact that people vote for the crossbaord battles shows that they DO care, you just don't see them because they're nameless anons. I don't like them but acting like their votes don't count is entitled in itself.
The seasons before 4 had plenty of shit as well. Nostalgia goggles.
>Also, too many crossboard battles, nobody cares about /co/ vs /whatever/
Fucking this, why do we need to fight someone else all the time? Let's just fight against each other. Wait that came out wrong.
But seriously, let's just keep it /co/ instead of making it so convoluted.
And the dry streak is broken with a Valhalla entry! congrats HGM!
Alas, victory is just out of their grasp.
I feel anther issue is what people are nomming.
i know this could never really be fixed but for fuck's sake Robot bird was the champion last season! fucking robot bird! and the worst part was he was one of the better noms in the champion fight! these joke noms are funny and cool once in awhile but when they take up half a roster it gets riduclous
also this is more of a personal opinion, but i never like it when someone noms a character who was in a comic but has non-/co/ origins. it makes me feel like they're gaming the system
i cant really think of a good way to fix these problem either.
Give it time, we'll just need a good match with events that line up perfectly with appropriate noms. The 9/11 plane is the last one I can recall, and that was 10/10.
This was a really high point for me.
I think some people have forgotten how to have fun in the games and we need to find what made them fun to begin with.
The difference between post-TT recovery HG (last of season 2, season 3) and now is different. When it happened, what really was the problem was that people were paranoid to play the games, especially when someone good won a game.
Now, it's like we're all Hunger Host. We care more about the waifus and the people we want to win than the actual games and fun themselves.
hey i have nominated the /co/ version of some /v/ characters because i liked them, about that issue have in mind that a some of the people here used to go to /v/ games before they were killed and their only knowledge in /co/ are vidya stuff
Advice: lurking /co/ during the weekdays can make you learn of something new, with all the discussions and storytimes. I still find something new almost every week and I have been on here for a while, although not nearly all my time I have spent on this forsaken website.
Reading this, the emptiness in my chest just goes larger.
You literally just described me, and I think having somebody else put out your flaws in as blunt away is possible really hits the nail on the head that you're doing something wrong.
I apologize for being an enormous faggot.
Actually I think 36 is the best size. When it's 48 there's less of a chance to build a story with the same noms interacting more than once, which is my favorite type of story. Smaller games are when I comment most.
To add to that, all these obscure noms that suppsoedly nobody but the person who nommed them gives a shit about? Try and look into the source, you may find a few gems in there. We don't all have to nominate only characters that are already known and beloved.
Man, I kinda feel guilty for having fun this season. But for real just don't take things seriously, follow another nom you like, and just see the crazy things they do. Feel bad for your nom once then get over it. At the end of the day it's just a RNG simulator
I don't really like this ganging up of Anthropomorphic animal thing people do, if it's /co/, then it's /co/. Treating another nom like shit because you want to be angry at TE FURRIES, is really dumb and makes the person that nominated them in the first place feel like shit. At least we're not resetting anymore.
And if the Host wants to do 36, then let them do 36. Quit whining you might not get your nom in.
I say we can nominate from whatever series we want, as long as it's /co/, and not a one off/facebook trash. That's what I didn't like about Slow Host, that was all he nominated/nominates.
hot dang i'm getting the same feeling too.
sorry for being a huge prick if i have been one in the games. i don't think we need the games to stop for a month, maybe a 2 weeks wait at most.
i think the best thing to do would be to shut down toxicity when it comes up.
the /v/ noms arent joke noms, and yes i know people like the characters
but when Nathan Drake won the first main game that just felt...wrong
i could totally be in the wrong here, this is just my knee jerk reaction.
and to all of the people who came from the /v/ games, i almost wanna say tough shit, because these are the /co/ games for /co/ characters.
if alot of people dont like this opinion ill back off, i jsut thought to bring it up since we're discussing problems with the games
...is that really an issue.
Like, am i just obligated to be fully invested in a hunger games match, when the game doesn`t guarantee there is a story to be told?
Is it really wrong of me to be invested in these games just to see my choice win, like watching a horse-race and only paying attention to the horse i bet?
the end of the day, this is a competition and people want to see their people win, and there comes rare occasions where i story is told, which makes said story memorable.
if every game had a story, people would stop giving a shit more than they do when their nomination gets in.
People just want to keep posting that's why.
Allowing characters to nommed 4 times for the chance of Grandslam is also killing the chances of orginal characters.
Shit like Aresko and Omnidroid should have never happened.
There is absolutely nothing wrong with treating animal fuckers like the trash they are.
Look, as it seems by now, the main issues are:
*Too many hosts and too litlle action.
*Some gusy who nom too many characters from a series/aren't original with their noms.
*MUH WAIFU WILL WIN syndrome
*Anons/hosts forcing too much their opinions on the games.
Also, apologies for confusing names.
I didn't mean Old Host, I meant SLOW HOST.
Also, I have an idea for the next sidegame.
Can you guess which one?
In 3 minutes I'll give you the answer.
The only thing wrong with lore is when it literally becomes part of the Games themselves, there's nothing wrong with lore characters, as long as they're not being pushed constantly.
>Allowing characters to nommed 4 times for the chance of Grandslam is also killing the chances of orginal characters.
I'll have to admit it was my thought to go from one main chance + two loser chances, but I might have supported the former when it came to be as well.
I find you pretty damn obnoxious, smiley fag.
I don't know why, but I feel like it's the website that makes me an enormous homo gay during the games.
On /hgs/, I'm usually really chill and I like to comment and sometimes host a game. It's just really calm and collect (maybe it's the lack of people or the fact you can nom more than once, but it's really relaxed).
But here on /co/, this competitive spirit overcomes me and suddenly, I HAVE to win. If my nom doesn't win then I feel terrible and the more I lose the worse I feel. This only happens here. I have never felt like this on /hgs/.
Can we also stop having to decide on polls so damn much. I'm tired of having /co/ vs /a/ delayed so many times because a host backs out, host doesn't want to pick it up, and a host changes it to not be /a/ at all at the last second due to a poll. For the love of god can we get it over with?
Well, it seems no one got the idea for the game I was going to do....
It's going to be....
TIME TRAVELLERS VS MAGICIANS!!!
Yes, i got the idea after that show that got renewed for a new season in 2016.... that's going to be broadcasted in Toonami/Adult Swin.
For Time Travellers, it can be whoever has gone to the past/future, and for Magician... you know what's a magician, right, /co/?
7 minutes for the Time Travellers side.
Remember to cite sources and link to post.
>killing the chances of orginal characters
No it's not, you can nom anyone you want to if you get your nom in on time. That's always how it's been. I have been nominating new characters every time a game comes up, the sometimes get in and they sometimes don't.
What's wrong here is the fact that people want to say bad ends every time they don't like a character and complain that the host doesn't want to do 48 match games, rather than what the host wants to do. As well as too many themed polls, let's just go back to vanilla.
Then why the fuck did people vote for it in the first place? It's been on top of two polls but for some reason it always gets changed because of what the host wants, so it's fucking pointless to even have the damn poll in the first place.
Wizards with true magic, duh.
There are too many magicians in /co/ anyways.
Well, time travellers are most of the time related to SCIENCE, and also, I posted in this post the rule with magicians.
Yes, I know, I wanted that match too.
4 minutes, guys.
i think because most of the polls allow you to pick multiple choices, and since /co/ vs /a/ is a pretty inoffensive choice so alot of people just check it off in addition to the ones they really want. so nobody reall REALLY wants it, it just an okay choice.
Ok, post here 24 time travellers.
Go, go, GO!!!!!

Since we're on the topic of polls, I'll give an idea to fix it. Once all the people give their match ideas, we have the host hand pick, say 5 ideas, and put them into a strawpoll that gives ONE voter per person. There might be some butthurt, but we won't have to deal with runoff voting.
I'm fine with this.
Too many time the polls have given us another side game that we have already done countless times.
The best polls are the ones where the host hand picks the games he likes.
Now, it's time to post these magicians.
Go, go, go, GADGET!!!!

>Are we talking stage magicians, or like wizards n' shit?
>Wizards with true magic, duh. There are too many magicians in /co/ anyways.
If he wants to exclude my nom becauser it's a witch, though, whatever.
You could have posted Finn's mom.
Although she's a witch, so eh.
You know, if you anons could help me find who's truly a magician, it could be of great help, while I start getting the noms in.
But he also said "wizards with true magics"
The line between magician and wizard is a hazy one, and the term "magician" is usually used for people who can't do actual magic, just stage magic.
As a rule of thumb, if they have magician or wizard in their name, odds are they are that. Also, the only real people I see break the rule is:
But I'm not that well traversed in cartoon wizardry and magic, so eh.
Because I am evil.
Ok.... you know what?
is right, then I'll have to accept whoever uses real magic powers.
Even if they're in name magicians.
Sorry for the inconvenience, i honestly made a mistake thanks to my english understanding, sorry.
>then I'll have to accept whoever uses real magic powers
How does that help now?
You literally denied other magic users before and that prevented some people to nominate characters they actually wanted.
I was going to nominate a character and asked you >>77982887 >>77982943 just to make sure I wouldn't fuck up.
You said No so I fucked off and now you're saying this >>77983599
Now that I, and possibly others, couldn't nominate their characters.
For anyone that hasn't gone to the garbage can to see what this games are all about, I'll save you 10 minutes of your life: is pure waifu faggotry with actual role playing, not /tg/ role playing, actual autistic devianart tier role play. No one cares about the games is just a hub for rping.
Next time don't be so picky with your subjects.
Small differences don't mean shit if they basically do the same things and noms can be left out if you take your subject name way too literally.
Why are you typing like that?
Do you have water on the brain?
And we can all do our part! When the next main game rolls around, try to get involved in the game even if your nom didn't do well. Keep the thread alive and the discussion active instead of just waiting for RNG to do its thing. Believe me, it's quite fun.
I'm kinda disconnected from alhethe drama even if I have been here since middle of season 4.
Mostly because I rarely nom since I'm on the other side of the pond and it's so fucking late when the games get good.
And now that I moved I find that my dorm's Internet lets me enter 4chan but they block the images due to pornography and now I can only browse and nom through my phone.
I was a bit iffy about Hevvin, but then I remembered that he actually has magic powers, so everything's okay by now.
Any name mistakes?
Starting in 2 minutes.
Well, he posted the pic at the end of the day, and I get that some guys usually are busy.
He said himself he's a wizard, and this issue had taken so long, this wasn't going to be ending up fine for anybody, so I left him in.
Let's start this thing already.
Things still continue during the day.
Damn, this match is bloody as fuck.
YOU SHALL NOT PASS!!!!
If you ask why I'm posting this too quickly, it's because I'll leave soon, and because I don't want this game to last more than it's necessary.
FASTER THAN THE LIGHT SPEED
...god damn it, I have to leave now.
Uh... Hello Host will replace me, though... I think
But I'm so sorry for having to leave, familliar issues.
Sniffles has an appropriate image.
Love is in the air.
Gues he really cleaned their
And now we have the big players duking it out!
Let's see who gets denied and who ascends, shall we?
EVIL WINS BECAUSE GOOD IS DUMB
>Backstab Dark Magicians
They didn't see that coming.
Dalliwog has a hard life.
Probabilitor and that Evil Wizard have a weird relationship.
Meanwhile, another magician has developed a taste for blood.
A rather tame Feast follows, but a Feast nonetheless.
Getting ready for more bloodshed.
Eviler than evil.
There's half a dozen charred corpses in that pool of oil by now.
Don't poke the lion, Strange.
Calm before the storm.
The magicians outnumber the time the other side 5:2. Can the time travellers prevent this future, or will the magicians be the LAW?
