HB Survivor: Redemption Island | Discussion

It's been a minute but the hit competition game is back. Five years after the first season kicked off in summer 2014, I'll be hosting again, along with assistance from the host of the recent HB Big Brother that helped in the revitalisation of our forum games, the wonderful @Leo

The game will be identical to Survivor—the show on CBS—in most aspects, but everything you'll need to know can found here.

FORMAT

Those who make the cast will start the game in evenly split tribes, either assigned randomly or based on a yet to be determined theme that'll be announced along with the final cast. Each round/cycle, these tribes will face off in an Immunity Challenge. The winning tribe each cycle will be safe, while the losing team must participate in a Tribal Council and vote to send one of its members home. Once the numbers have dwindled to around 8-12, the two tribes will merge and it becomes an individual game. Each challenge from then on will be every man for himself, and only the winner will receive immunity in the upcoming vote. Once only two or three people are left, the remaining contestants will be turned over to a jury of their peers for one final Tribal. The contestants who have been voted out since the merge get to come back, question the remaining players, and ultimately vote to decide who wins the game. Throughout the game there will also be a number of bonuses that can help turn the tide in your favour, from hidden immunity idols to added challenge rewards that can prolong your stay. A variety of twists may also be implemented when you least expect them.

DATES AND SCHEDULING

The official start date of the game will be announced during the cast reveal within the next two weeks, but I'd like it to be as soon as possible. The season will last approximately 4-6 weeks depending on how quickly each cycle goes and is expected to begin by mid-June, so if you know you can't commit to the full length of the contest, please make a note of it during your application. Not being available won't immediately bar you from making the cast as most situations can probably be worked around. If you've signed up but have to back out of the competition for whatever reason, please let me know as soon as possible so I can arrange for a replacement!

RULES

While this game doesn't have any unique rules, forum rules do apply and you can receive warning points if you go too far. Drama and arguments are fine within the context of the game, please keep it at that and try not to make things personal. This game is solely for fun and bragging rights, not a million dollars, so try your best to keep things from getting too ugly.

ACTIVITY

If you sign up for the game, it's expected that you participate. I understand that it's summer and you may have other things to do, but this shouldn't take up much of your time. The challenges will be fairly quick, and tribal will take place over 24 hours, so you have plenty of time to post something. The only way everyone will remain interested is if we keep the game fairly paced.

CASTING

To sign up, please send me a Private Message with the following template filled out. Applications won't be accepted after June 9.

Sign-up template:

Spoiler

Name (real or user, what you'd like me to use during the game):
Timezone:
Member since:
Previous experience (in HB games):
Closest friends on the forum:
Biggest enemies on the forum:
Three words to describe yourself (words, not a sentence):
Top three WWE women (past or present, in order from most to least liked): 1. -- 2. -- 3. --
Why you think you will be the Sole Survivor:

Not everyone who sends in an app is guaranteed to be cast. If you don't make the initial cut, it isn't personal, it just means someone else may have fit the desired theme more than you. It also doesn't mean you won't be playing. Sometimes things happen and people have to drop out, and someone who wasn't originally cast gets their time to shine.

Finally, if you have any questions, feel free to ask me in this thread or via PM. I hope we can all make this game's return a success and create some fun memories, much like we did for the last two seasons!

SEASON 1 (challenges, tribal, reunion) | SEASON 2 (challenges, tribal, reunion)

Thanks to @Michael Psyches for some of the summaries.

At least I made it through the season 2 premiere. The first try at a season 3 can't relate. Will this one have an episode 1?

Honestly, as of late I don't have any enemies on HB  @Shoaib. 

Will this affect the application process should I just throw a few names down?

The first season, the cast was sorted into tribes based on the common idea of good versus evil with a wrestling twist. BABYFACES vs. HEELS 

The second season, the cast was sorted into tribes based on their experience. ROOKIES vs.VETERANS

For the third season, we're changing things up. This season, the tribes won't be divided based on anything in particular because the overall theme will be...

Spoiler

 

HB SURVIVOR: REDEMPTION ISLAND


For those unfamiliar with this concept, I'll explain. This season, when you're voted out, you aren't eliminated from the game entirely. You'll instead be 'sent' to Redemption Island where you have the opportunity for, you guessed it, redemption. Once the next person has been voted out, the two players inhabiting Redemption Island will compete in a Duel where the winner stays while the loser is eliminated from the game for good. This will repeat after every elimination. At certain points, those still standing will have the opportunity to compete in order to be the one who returns to the main game. That individual will get to continue their pursuit of the title of Sole Survivor.

Those vying to be crowned Sole Survivor this season will be...

Ari (@Ari M.)
CJ (@Mandy Rose)
Cordelia (@Rainbow Heart)
@Dante.
@Eric
@Gavin
@Jake
@Katy
@Kiki
Kyle (@Cooksie)
Leigh (@Puggle)
@Mariah.
Michael (@Michael Psyches)
@Samier.
Stephen (@Captain Fox)
@Twisted Bliss

You're probably wondering why nobody has a tribe assigned yet and, well, that's because nobody has one yet... except two people. To determine the tribes, we'll be using the following recycled method: as the two highest placing players in HB Survivor history that are returning, Michael and Mariah will serve as captains of sorts in order to determine the two tribes in a schoolyard pick right now. Michael's tribe will go by Rosa while Mariah's will go by Bella.
