Default Tau Online Grand Summer Story Competition [RESULTS]

Well here is the moment that you have all been waiting for...Two and a half long months of writing the stories and another half a month of voting and judging. Several stupidly complicated mathmatical formulae later and we are proud to announce to you the scores on the doors.

But before I do, I would just like to thank each and every one of you who entered. The standard was very high, and getting 20 stories was a true credit to this website. I'm sure we would like to put many of them on the main site! Even the least of these stories was an enjoyable story to read.

Having said that, sadly we must rank them as well as enjoy them, so, without further ado...

The Results
  • derfderf (Akala's Pendant) = 109.6 points
  • Stankov (The Penal Legions) = 100.1 points
  • Lord Demon (Brothers in Battle) = 98.2 points
  • Tom Norman (Operation Comet) = 96.3 points
  • Blue Wider (The Lampetie Accounts) = 94.8 points
  • Wargamer (Entry I) = 94.4 points
  • Farseer Tyross (Twin Traitors) = 91.5 points
  • Tim (Forbidden Memories) = 91 points
  • Top Bannana (High Death) = 90.5 points
  • Frogger (The Enemy Within) = 89.4 points
  • Walrus Man (Of Gold And Blood part one) = 84.2 points
  • Thrawn (Beginning of the end times) = 82.7 points
  • Commissar_Will (The Battle for Inanis VI) = 78.9 points
  • Lordlink (Entry C) = 71.4 points
  • Malay Melee (Dark Dealings) = 67.5 points
  • Youngy (Entry B) = 67.4 points
  • The Grand Seer (Entry G) = 63.4 points
  • ilveIG159 (Entry F) = 55 points
  • Psyker 11 (Entry H) = 51.9 points
  • Lonely Tau (Entry E) = 48 points

How we got to these scores

%age of votes cast from the public Poll + %age of total votes awarded by the judges* = final score

*There was 210 points in total that each piece could be awarded from the judges and so the math for that would be (100/210) * total judge votes .

The Prizes

The top three of course will recieve the warhammer prizes, and should get in contact with Tau Online immidiately to discuss how this will work! For everyone else, to represent what I said about every story being a good read, you will all recieve not only a official competition seal, but +1 karma for your contributions too!

Another Thank You

A big thankyou to all of the Competition Committee for the effort it takes in running and judging a competition as big as this, without you guys it wouldn't be possible so as I'm in a generous mood, have +1 karma each too!

Cheers guys!

What tha...

I only got 3 votes, and ended up third?

Damn. The judges must have really liked my story. Unless I understood the formula wrong, I got like 196 votes out of the 210.

Are you guys sure you didn't mess up the math on my case? :huh:

Yay! I wasn't as low down as I thought I would be!

With no votes in the public vote 17th isn't bad. And The person above me was half as much ahead of me as I was of the person behind me.

Hooray.

Congrats to derfderf, stankov and LordDemon. I didn't have time to read any entries before but I look forward to reading yours now.

Nope, you really did get 196 votes from the judges. Out of the possible points per judge, you averaged 32.67 marks. The average of all the averages is only 26.78, so you did exceptionally well with the judges.

Well eighth isn't too bad I guess, especially considering that I wrote the story in the last three days. Well done to derfderf, Stankov and LordDemon for their awesome entries.

*checks results again... holy hell Wargamer didn't win a fluff competition. Well now I don't know what to think

I had a good time writing my entry and I'm glad I did as well as I did. Congratulations to derfderf, Stankov, and Lord Demon for their success.

Thanks also to Novae, 42, King Winter, Hive Lord, AfterCresent, and Toastmaster for being the judges for the competition and slogging their way through the entries.
