What is the HB Royal Rumble? 

If you've taken part in or simply witnessed previous HB Royal Rumbles, you should know how this game works. If not, here's an explanation! 

The Heartbreakers Royal Rumble (abbreviated to HB RR) is an annual event at Heartbreakers which is separated into two stages: The Preliminaries, and The Rumble. 

The Preliminaries is where 100 Divas and Knockouts alike get narrowed down to thirty. Throughout the span of ten days (December 12 - December 21), all 100 women will be pit against each other in singles matches. Quite different to the fatal four ways that were ran last year, but that will be explained later on.

The Rumble is where the chosen 30 women's wrestlers compete for glory! From December 24 - 31, I will ask you, the member reading this, to send me in a list that ranks each of the thirty women involved from 1st (gaining 30 points) to 30th (gaining 1 point). From January 1 onwards, the numbers start to whittle down as one by one, women in the HB Rumble get thrown out of the ring and onto the floor; as we eventually find out which woman will be crowned the winner of the Heartbreakers Royal Rumble 2016! 

And in case you're wondering, your participation is completely encouraged in this game! I want you guys to get involved in every step of the way, from voting in The Preliminaries to voting in The Rumble! The last few years wouldn't nearly have been successful without member participation! 
 



 How the preliminaries work this year

Last year, the preliminaries were split across 100 women's wrestlers. 4 women per day would compete for 1 spot in the Rumble; this would happen for around 10 days. On the eleventh day, the last round of the preliminaries allows five though there ended up being a sixth spot available since Paige/Eve drew in both of their matches rejected women (last year's wildcards including Nikki Bella, Summer Rae, Paige, Jenna Morasca, Eve & Carmella) extra spots into the Rumble.

This year, the preliminaries are still split across 100 women's wrestlers, but there will be no fatal four ways. This year, there's going to be singles matches! 10 Divas compete in five singles matches per day. For example:

Day 1:

- Woman 1 vs Woman 2
- Woman 3 vs Woman 4
- Woman 5 vs Woman 6
- Woman 7 vs Woman 8
- Woman 9 vs Woman 10

And so on. However, winning a match doesn't guarantee you a place in the HB Royal Rumble this year; it just increases the likelihood.

For instance, winning a match will place one woman into the Top 50. Losing a match will place another woman into the Bottom 50.

In both the Top 50 and the Bottom 50, the members of Heartbreakers will rank their top 5 favorite women from each bracket. Once the results have been revealed, the 25 most popular women from the Top 50, and the 5 most popular women from the Bottom 50 will make it into the Rumble.

Statistically, that gives the woman's wrestler a 50% chance of making it into the HB Royal Rumble if she was in the Top 50, and a 10% chance of making it into the HB Royal Rumble if she was in the Bottom 50. While your fave still has a chance of making it into the HB Royal Rumble in the Bottom 50, your safest bet would be to have her in the Top 50 if you want to see her make the Rumble.
 



 Voting 

Take Day 1 as an example.

Day 1:

- Woman 1 vs Woman 2
- Woman 3 vs Woman 4
- Woman 5 vs Woman 6
- Woman 7 vs Woman 8
- Woman 9 vs Woman 10

The voting must look something like this:

Day 1 ~

Women 2, 3, 6, 7, 10

You must vote for the woman in each singles match that you would like to advance to The Rumble. 

You are not allowed to skip one singles match in favor of the other. Votes will not be counted if you skip another singles match from the same day. 

You must send your votes to me and only me via PM. I will not accept votes in this thread.

 



The HB Royal Rumble starts tomorrow at 3PM EST! Feel free to use this time to discuss anything pertaining to the HB Royal Rumble whether those are questions you might have or memories you wish to revisit, and I'll do my best to contribute!

And something I wanna clear up, in case anyone asks about it:

NO randomiser this year! The matches have been drawn together by alphabetical means.

This might cut down on the mess... A good thing I guess.

Between you and Matto my nerves were on EDGE with that tool.

tbh everybody was tugging at my wig last year for the randomiser and how it pitted the likes of Nikki against AJ and so on, so I figured not doing it by random would be the safest bet :laycry:

Is it the singles matches or what comes after with the Top 50/Bottom 50? The latter does kinda sound confusing to explain, admittedly, but I'm hoping it'll be seen as a good concept at the very least by the time we're done with the preliminaries.

You mean for the preliminaries? I'll probably go back to using the randomiser next year if people really do prefer it, but I figured doing it manually would be a safer option.

Plus I've already done the graphics and they seem to be popping pretty well, judging by some of the responses I've got from them so far.

Let me go try and see who Cam is gonna have to pop OUT in the prelims.

A victory here can end my grieving.

I just think now it would be kinda boring and predictable! Last year's was iconic and by far the best one! Change the format sis :laycry:  

We trust you :laycry:

Oh, it's not gonna be as straightforward as, say, Cameron vs Candice. There will still be a little bit of unpredictability in the match-ups :jenn:

Slay, perched for the return of this iconic HB tradition. Also perched to be yelling at you ugly whores when Ro is one of the first ten out again.

Oh! Kinda relieved it isn't confusing, at least. :laycry:

tbh I imagine that your faves are generally popular enough to make it through to the Rumble with ease.
