    So let's also all not shower or eat alot of food, just to keep it close to the real survivor.

    Yeah, I think the thing being lost here is that most of the challenges on Survivor are physical challenges meaning that teams NEED to sit players to keep things fair. None of the challenges in this Survivor are physical. At least I don't think so anyway. I'd kick some *** in a push-up challenge.

    Hey sorry I haven't been on (SPRING BREAK 11!!!)

    I would like the rule where people must sit out to closer emulate the show... After 9 seasons or whatever, I think they have a good system down.

    Back to the life of a college student!

    Okay since both Trowa and Skeet both voted to overturn the rule, if it ends up a 10-10 tie, the tiebreaker will side with the captains.

    I had previously voted in the thread but not the poll. Fixed.

    I agree with 984:

    That's why "Survivor" does it ... to keep the team competition as close as possible. That way, when the merge happens, it's not a foregone conclusion that the hangers-on from the smaller tribe are just going to get eliminated.

    I voted yesterday in the poll. I picked the new rule change. I'm sorry but I've been real busy the past few days. My schedule calms down Saturday. I'm presently in Atlanta training to care of my sick father.

    I hope that doesn't make you feel bad monsterblitz.............. :)

    Damn man I hope everything ends up okay. :/ Keep us updated bro

    and on a less important note...the new rule passes. Even though my money's on that we never see it even get used.

    Well, I'm half hoping the rule is invoked. And then someone who voted for it gets voted off their team while sitting on the bench during a challenge. When they get furiously pissed that they got the boot without even getting a chance to put up a fight we can just say, "Yeah, but it's just like the REAL Survivor." and see if that makes them feel any better.

    And if that happens to me, I'm going to burn some **** down.

    I busted out laughing at the last line. I can get you directions to Skeet's house in the event that happens though. :)

    how about they bench the most inactive player...and when they ***** you say well you were inactive. in survivor they sit out their weakest people and in a way your least active or productive members would be considered weak players in this game. also if something came up for someone it would be easy for them to sit out without actually losing a number in that way.

    there's good points to both sides that's why i went what i thought the fairest way to decide and that was a vote between all players. and remember it's only certain competitions that members would have to sit out.

    Sitting you would be stupid though. I'd really question the captain that sat you unless you asked for it yourself.

    the captain may not have a choice since it cant be the same person everytime, if some team is down 3, then thats 3 different people that have to sit each week (with the obvious weaker ones getting booted each week) meaning potential a very active and good/strong player may have to sit. which blows.

    That would mean you were up by 4 (with 11 or 12 total team challenges that's a lot) AND it was two challenges back to back where they have to sit out members. It could happen, but it's really unlikely.

    I would be really shocked if a team got 3 members up.

    Whether they were active, sucked, or not it's still not going to make it any easier a pill to swallow. Also probably worth mentioning that some players didn't prove their worth till later in the game. I remember Dender being on the brink of getting voted out pretty early before he started kicking *** and taking names. And it could happen to unknown players this year too. BUT...

    I don't want to make it seem like I'm *****ing. It was voted on and the rule is happening, so I'm on board. Doesn't mean that I still won't say "Told you so" if the scenario I describe happens to a person who voted for it. This game will be a blast, and this rule won't change that. :up:

    If we're talking about last year, than the only time this rule would've happened was the very last challenge. And if I recall correctly dender did pretty well in the 2nd challenge and from then on?
