Fight Club: Time out your friends!

How to Join

Hycutype complained loudly enough that Failstream was forced to make Fight Club™ an opt-in game. In order to start playing, whisper failsbeard the phrase !opt-in (/w failsbeard !opt-in).

You may opt out at any time with !opt-out, but your score will be reset to 0 if you opt-in again.

Rules of the Game

The rules of Fight Club™ are simple.

  1. Never stop talking about Fight Club™.
  2. Never stop talking about Fight Club™.
  3. Type !attack <username> [cheer<n>] in a whisper to failsbeard (or the main channel if you are cheering), a few dozen 100-sided dice are rolled, some complicated math / interpretive dance happens behind the scenes, there's a formal vote taken in the British Parliament as to who won, most of that is ignored, and the bot responds with the results. These results are highly skill dependent. In particular, how close to a caress your touch is when pressing the c key and how well timed your k is after that caress have the greatest impact on your odds of winning.

    In order to !attack, both you and the person you are attacking must have at least one non-deleted message in the past ten minutes. After you attack, there is a 3-minute cooldown before you can !attack again. The person you !attack, whether or not they actually get timed out, also has a 5-minute period in which they cannot be !attacked. These "invincibilty frames" are lost if you attack someone during that 5-minute period. You can get around both of these cooldowns with bribery.

Fight Outcomes

Assuming you're up against someone with equal keyboarding skill, these are the odds of each outcome.

OddsResultAttacker score changeDefender score change
3%Critical loss: attacker is timed out for 60 seconds-15+30
9%Heavy loss: attacker is timed out for 20 seconds-5+10
36%Loss: attacker is timed out for 10 seconds-3+5

3%Critical win: defender is timed out for 60 seconds15 + # messages deleted / 10-20
100%(Suicide) Timed out for between 10-120 seconds-seconds timed out / 5

If you are a subscriber, you have a 5% bonus on both attacking and defending.

Additionally, there is a 7% chance on an !attack win that you will not break a sweat, and you will have no cooldown before your next attack.

If you wrote the Fight Club™ bot, there ought to be a 50% bonus on attacking and defending, but there isn't.

"But dx," you might be asking, "that would mean that you are more likely to lose than win when !attacking. Why should I attack?" Well, my friend, like the lottery, you gotta play to win.

You'll also note there is an advantage for attacking people who are most active in chat.

Special Outcomes

There are some rare events that affect the whole chat. I'll fill in the details as they occur.

Bribery is Encouraged

You can bribe EnderofGames by attacking with a cheer of 10 or more! Cheering will allow you to ignore invicibility frames as well as your own cooldown. While most !attacks can only occur in whispers to failsbeard, cheers can only occur in main chat, so !attacks with bribes happen there.

Every 100 bits earns you a 3% advantage on your roll, up to 1000 bits or 30%. Beware, while you can gain a substantial advantage, if you lose, you get timed out even longer. Additionally, any bribe less than 50 bits will earn you a negative bonus on your attack roll, and some harsh mocking from the bot.

Most importantly, it helps support our favorite streamer! That's right, Freakin_HA! Go give him a follow at https://twitch.tv/freakin_ha.

DPC's Sideways Spring1 in 3 chance that attacks against you will be redirected onto a random player.

Points are awarded to or detracted from the new target, as are invincibility frames. 2 points are granted to the holder of this item when it procs.

Because it was too hard to program otherwise, when redirecting an attack, it ignores the new target's iframes.

DPC's Sideways Spring is bypassed with a bribe.

Tear 'Em Down

Does someone have too many points? Don't worry! The top 5 attackers have a reduced chance of defending against your attacks. Attacks against the top attacker have a 5% bonus of success. Attacks against 2nd place have a 4% bonus and so on. If you are sitting somewhere between 2nd and 5th place, !attacks against people below you have the same odds as normal (0% bonus). Attacks against people above you have 1% per rank difference bonuses. For example, if you are in 4th place and attack someone in 2nd place, you have a 2% bonus to your attack succeeding.

FAQs
How are messages counted?

The server keeps track of the last 200 messages sent in the previous 10 minutes.

What are the messages when you attack the streamer or bot from?

Ye olde EverQuest.

Who gets items named after them?

People who have been around in Fail's chat for a while and have some meme or achievement that translates well to an item.

Can I get an item named after me?

If you have a good idea and the price is right, probably! Join the Discord Server, and we'll see what can happen. I'm serious about the bribe though. (I'm very, very poor.) The price will depend on how much of a community member you already are in Fail's chat, how good the idea is, and how difficult it would be to program.
