The Killing vs. Kreeler Conspiracy - Bolt-01 Cup - Group 1 Game 5
« on: 27 September, 2021, 06:29:41 AM »
Final ties of the Group and The Killing seems to have this in the bag. Can The Kreeler Conspiracy course a major upset to salvage some pride?

All you need to worry about which is your favourite between:

The Killing - more info

Vs

Kreeler Conspiracy - more info

Just reply in this thread naming your favourite of these two stories at the beginning of your post (or use Bold tags so I can spot it easily) and say what you like about these wonderful stories after that.

Match ends early on the morning of Thursday 30th September and the winner (I’ll count up who gets the most votes basically) gets 3 points towards qualifying… huh…

… there’s a spreadsheet to make following easier… if you fancy. If not, don’t worry just VOTE!!!!

I’ve tried to explain the finals here.

What on Earth is ALL of this?

Why on Tharg’s Earth head are we doing this?

Any questions, just ask as ever - and have FUN!

Oh and my ‘More info’ links… well I don’t say how much more and they get pretty wonky at times!

Kreeler Conspiracy
When I die, I want to die like my grandfather who died peacefully in his sleep. Not screaming like all the passengers in his car.

Old age is the Lord’s way of telling us to step aside for something new. Death’s in case we didn’t take the hint.

The Killing here. I think it's one of the best Stront stories for crazy bad guys. Art aside, I don't get the love for Kreeler at all.
You're a dark horse, Boots.

Last day here and a day for any final decisions in Group 1 before I count things up in the morning and annouce the final results tomorrow morning.

Arrrhhh and some of those decisions can be tough. I'm really struggling with this one. I really enjoy the no nonsense action thrill premise and execution of The Killing, but as I've said numerous times during this tourney

The Kreeler Conspiracy

Manages to deal a heavy to do list and still remain a fantastic story and its on that basis it gets my vote.

VOTING CLOSED

This tie didn't affect much, other than to confirm what we knew in all honesty. Top and bottom of the group seemed pretty clear and this vote just confirmed it. Kreeler Conspiracy got good support acrioss a number of ties, but never enough to win one and so was consigned to the bottom of the group. At the other end

The Killing

Took this tie and the group with easy and goes through to the quarters as one of the seeded thrills.

                                                Points    Vote Diff
The Killing                                 9                 20
The Doc Quince Case              3                 -6
Top Dog                                     3                 -6
The Kreeler Conspiracy           0                 -8
