Easy Allies E3 press conferences Forums betting thread!!



  • Hey ya'll, I did this last year and I loved the response so I'm going to bring back my betting special. The rules are simple, I'm going to pose 15 bets and you reply with the values you wager. All bets will be tallied by me from the youtube videos after the streams. Unless otherwise noted The PC gaming show will be omitted from bets because I don't want to sit through that slog.
    Alright here we go
    1.) During the Sony Press conference, what color will Ian's nails be? If you bet we won't see hands throughout the video bet "schrodinger's cat"

    2.) How many minutes and seconds will Don be seated at main table over all press conferences (except pc gaming show)

    3.) How many obviously different ties will Kyle wear? (includes pc gaming show)

    4.) How many times will Ben do "a voice"?

    5.) Will Bloodworth raise his arms over his head in excitement?

    6.) Will Chim reveal itself?

    7.) How many times will Huber say "Let's go!"

    8.) What Color will Brads shirt be during the Square Enix conference (if you expect him to not be present say "schrodinger's cat" )

    9.) What will be Jones's Favorite trailer, This one will have to be determined after the show during a post show show or some other show like that. He may not even show his favorite trailer from the show, it just goes to show that Jone's Best in show may be a no-show. For sho.

    10.) I am going to add up all the time that "The Stream will begin shortly" title card is used for all (pc show included) press conferences on youtube. how long will that be?

    11.) Who will be the first person on stage during the EA press conference?

    12.) Pick three allies. For each of those three allies who is at the main table at the END of the Nintendo Press conference you will get a point.

    13.) Pick three allies. For each of those three allies who is NOT at the main table at the beginning of the Ubisoft press conference you will be awarded a point.

    14.) This one is worth 3 points, take a wild guess on any guest stars during the press conferences, they must sit at the main table to count.

    15.) Who will win Ian's best carpet award?

    I think that's enough bets. The betting will be closed on June 8th and the winner will get to choose the losers Avatar for the remainder of the summer.
    Have fun with it and good luck.

    Hmmm Amanda is not one of the allies but that isn't the spirit of the question so i'm going to say Amanda and Sophie are disqualified from number 14. Please @TokyoSlim choose another guest. (good thinking though)

  • 10.) I am going to add up all the time that "The Stream will begin shortly" title card is used for all (pc show included) press conferences on youtube. how long will that be?

    You may want to clarify if we are talking about the EZA title card, or ALL stream will begin shortly title cards featured on the EZA stream, cause they are gonna talk over a lot of min of other people's title cards...

    I took that to mean everyone's, since you mentioned the PC show. Is that correct? I also see some folks guessing like 1 to 3 min tho. Which is nuts.



  • I believe the bet is as clear as stated



  • @bostonsean ooookay? Except it's not really? I mean, your belief isn't really important here. I'm asking for clarification.



  • @tokyoslim I think it means that EZA's title card with stars that is shown before every stream on Twitch. There's usually a few seconds of it visible at the start of every YouTube cut, so I'm going to guess a minute or two when I make my predictions.

    But sure, a clarification would be important.

  • @sentinel-beach that is precisely what I meant



  • @bostonsean Which is not how it looks like it's written, which is why I voted for more than 20 minutes, which is why I asked for clarification. Took @Sentinel-Beach to get an answer though.

    The way it's written makes it sound like you're asking how long in total they will be talking over the presenters title cards waiting for shows to start. Obviously on youtube, they are going to trim most of the EZA title cards off of the stream uploads. That is a drastically different bet.

    I'm revising my bet.
