The Rejected Realms has invited its allies to a unique, rock-paper-scissors competition. How do regions compete in a rock-paper-scissors competition, you may ask? Great question.
Our regions will compete against each other, two at a time, using regional polls. Each region will hold a regional poll with "rock", "paper" or "scissors" as their options - allowing the regions to choose their hand over a three day period.
With foreknowledge of what the other side is choosing, both regions will have to mobilize their voters to counter the other region's hand before the three days are up!
Section 1: Preparation
1. Both teams will begin their regional poll at precisely the exact same time.
2. If it becomes clear that one teamís regional poll is running earlier than the other teamís regional poll, the match should be restarted and the poll discarded.
3. There will be three options in these regional polls: Rock, Paper or Scissors.
4. Both regional polls will be set to last three days and remain open to all residents.
Section 2: The Game
5. In any match: Rock beats Scissors, Paper beats Rock, Scissors beats Paper.
6. At the conclusion of the polls, if the option with a plurality on oneís teamís regional poll is a winning option (see 2.5) against the option that holds a plurality on the other teamís regional poll, then that team has won the match.
7. At the conclusion of the polls, if both teams hold a plurality with the same option, then the match is a draw.
8. At the conclusion of the polls, if one team has two or more options tied for the most votes in its poll, then that team must concede the match by default.
9. At the conclusion of the polls, if both teams have two or more options tied for the most votes in their polls, then the match is a draw.
10. Players are allowed to change how they vote during a poll at any time.
11: Draws will be resolved with a random winner selected by the lead event organizer.
Section 3: Poll Raiding and Good Faith
10. All residents ought to refrain from ďpoll raidingĒ or manipulating either regionís poll.
The matches will run according to this schedule.
