Game of Mods


The Game of Mods, or the Moderator Competition, is a 3 day long rank competition where all participants compete in a war of tasks to become the next new Moderator.

Games


The Game of Mods has been played on all the DSGHQ virtual worlds, but is mostly played on OldCP.biz.
It was also played on Snaildom and briefly on Penguin Isles.

Series One



Stage 1

On July 14th at around 5:00 PM EST, Damen made the first ever announcement that there was going to be a Moderator Competition, there were about 30 users on at the time.

The first task was to form a team. The biggest team would win the task.

Key123 made Team Black Hoodies and Journey made Team Freehawk. There were about 17 people on the Black Hoodies so they won the task. Everybody thought that Key123 had won the entire competition right there.

Suddenly, people started claiming that the winner was somebody else, but iLily, Journey, Poas and two other Black Hoodies helped out and said that Key123 was (which he was).

The second task was the run the Coffee Shop, Freehawks & Black Hoodies both won.

After the stage ended, Key123 and Journey were speaking. He had decided to quit the Black Hoodies and give the leader role to iLily, who had tied with Journey during the Stage.

The rule was that whoever lasted the longest as a moderator, would officially win the competition. Later, iLily was demoted for abusing her rank, so Journey won.

Although before the second series, Journey disappeared and didn't return for a long time.

Series Two



There are no records on this series other than Poas won and Nintendo became the runner-up of the competition on his first attempt.

Series Three



Stage 1

The second series of the Game of Mods kicked off with a win from Team Freehawks in the first task. Task Two was to run the Pizza Parlor, which involved cleaning, serving people and cooking pizzas.

The third task was to teach pookies a lesson. Since the Game of Mods was less serious, this sort of thing happened for real...

Before the fourth task, a historical event occurred with the betrayal of the OldCP Agents lead by Rover. The birth of the Blackhawks and the end of Scarlet Myers positive reputation. All the moderators and Damen were banned by the Agents. Not long after, Damen fixed the problem and everything went back to normal. It resulted in this outline, which did not prove to be entirely so. http://forums.damenspike.com/view/27.

In the fourth task, users helped out at the Coffee Shop. After that, the winners for the stage were revealed. The Blue Sparkles, and the Freehawks won the Stage.

Stage 2

For Task 1, the Nerds won. Task 3 was to save the city from disaster, the Blue Sparkles and FBI raced to the rescue, and even arrested a couple of moderators.

Task 4 was to act like a dog or a cat and "sniff some animal butts". Task 5 was to tell staff why you should be a moderator.

Task 6 was to train ninjas and fight their own teams. The Nerds won the Stage, despite only winning two tasks. The possible reason that the Nerds won was because they had preformed well in the last task.

Stage 3

Stage 3 was highly anticipated as a suspenseful semi final. The Blue Sparkles, the Nerds (Youcasters), and the Agents all competed for the top spot in OldCP: the moderator rank.

In Task 1, the Nerds did a great job and won the task. The second task resulted the same way as the Nerds won again. Task 3 could not be judged, everyone did so well. In task 4, both Blue Sparkles and Nerds won, but the Agents were no longer part of the contest and were fired.

Task 5 was to form a band. The Blue Sparkles shocked the audience with disappoint, but the Nerds were confident, and thus the Blue Sparkles were fired from the competition.

After task 5, the finalists were revealed for Stage 4.

Stage 4

The Final. Task 1 was to make a teaching lesson based on "how to become moderator". Task 2 was to throw a Dance Club party. YouTubeFan2 was fired, as she did not do much. Task 3 was to make an Office, but some mistook the task for a Coffee Shop instead. HipHop got fired.

Task 5 was to make teams. Then the final three were revealed. Key123, Thisismyname, and Nintendo went on to Task 6 with the other non-finalists. They opened a Pizza Parlor and Nintendo was the delivery head. Then came the final results. Key123 came in third, Thisismyname was the runner-up, and Nintendo was the winner of the series.
