    A great first episode! I'm really sad Kelsey left already though, was that because she didn't really socialise with the others?

    I was sorry to see Kelsey go. :( I don't want to see any of these Sims go, but that's the game.
    Perhaps we will see her on a reunion show. :)

    Kelsey was voted out mainly because she was the weakest performer in challenges, which she could have overcome if she had socialized more. She barely has a relationship with Aubrey and Billie, and no relationship at all with Cassie and Lily. She and Irving hate each other.
    So sorry, Kelsey. :'(

    It might make more sense when you see that stat tracking chart. I'll try to get that up on Drive this week.

    I want to know how my Stan is doin' :P

    Awesome first episode! I wonder what Erin was so mad about. I sense a girls vs boys alliance.

    I've never watched a Sims challenge before (aside from a couple BuzzFeed Multiplayer videos). This was a lot of fun, and I'm really interested to see how it plays out. I felt so bad for the Sims getting rained on! What season is it in your game? And what will happen if there's a heat wave?

    Also, Ransom cannot believe they took his headphones and guitar. He texted me complaining. He says the marshmallows were fun, though.

    YouTube's auto closed captioning called Aubrey "all brie." It must have been the stink cloud she's emitting!
    So I may call her Brie from now on. 😄
    I knew nicknames would pop up somehow!

    Would y'all be interested in seeing the Sim survivors' performance and social stats? If so, I can put the spreadsheet on Google Drive and post a link so you can track each Sim's status. Not sure how easy it would be to explain how it works in terms of voting, but I'll try.
    Stats are always fun!

    @Damaro

    Which pronunciation of Caleo's name is correct?
    CAL ee oh
    cah LAY oh

    or something else?

    Whatever you feel like, I have pronunced his name in my head in all possible variations. :D

    Here's a link to my performance and social stats spreadsheet for each Sim survivor at the time of tribal council.

    https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1TyM4wF1ccX26Rpja904RtXRa0Wk3OYqqpQMDvEEpyAM/edit?usp=sharing

    FYI: Each Sim could score up to 3 performance points in each challenge.

    Reward Challenge: Dig This
    §0 = 0
    §1-§50 = 1
    §51-§100 = 2
    §101 and up = 3

    Immunity Challenge: Meckchate
    Lose = 0
    Win = 3

    With regard to social stats, I think I messed up on the vote and Cassie should have voted for Kelsey instead of Caleo. Either way, it was Kelsey going home this week. I really am sad to see her go. I know I try to sound impartial and dispassionate about it, but I really do love these Sims.

    Did you notice Lily's social stats and her alliance with Erin? What's up with that?! I think she and Erin just kept chatting during the chess match, which makes sense because Lily was starved for social interaction after a night in exile. But dang! Now she has a strong alliance with someone on the enemy tribe.

    I wonder why Kelsey and Irving hate each other so much? :joy:

    I think it's because Irving keeps pranking everyone. I'm a bit surprised that Irving is the one annoying everybody. I thought Cassie would be the one to make people mad because she's evil, but she's also smart so I guess she knows better.

    I hate to point fingers, but Irving may have had a role to play in Kelsey's downfall. She was in a foul mood after talking to him and didn't want to talk to anyone else. But I'm sure the hunger and lack of sleep had something to do with it, too.

    These poor pixelated souls are suffering on survivor island.

    Am I being too hard on them?

    Wow! I can't believe that Irving is pranking everyone! Hilarious. Maybe it's the erratic trait that is driving him over the edge. lol
  • SkeilahSkeilah Posts: 212 Member
    Stan and Chase don’t like each other, why am I not surprised? XD I am surprised about Stan having the best relationship with Jax tho.

    Good first episode. It was funny to see the survivors at their first challenge dressed in fancy clothes as well as one tribe being completely dysfunctional. Looking forward to the castaways continuing to get stinkier (aside from Irving who will shower in the rain), cause drama, and perhaps a medvac of a castaway. >:)

    I dunno if it'll only be Irving showering, I've had sims autonomously try to do it without the erratic trait.

    I love looking at everyone's stats! It makes sense on the dynamics.

    I love that Jax has a relationship with Caleo on the other team. Maybe an alliance will form from this?

    And he doesn't have a relationship at all with Chase. So weird!
  • nerdfashionnerdfashion Posts: 3,614 Member
    Huh. Just looked at the spreadsheet again and noticed that Aubrey has the highest relationship with Billie. Didn't see that one coming.

    Chess games are good for bonding, I suppose. Ok! Sims, these players are the enemy right now.

    Ransom is lucky the production team didn't find his cell phone or they would have confiscated that too! I guess he must have 4G service for texting, because the island is otherwise totally off-grid.

    To answer your question, the challenge started on Day 1 of spring, hence all the rain. I don't know what will happen to the survivors if there's a heat wave, but it sure will be fun to find out! muhahaha >:)

    Cell phones are the bane of any attempt at historical or off the grid play! I apologize on Ransom's behalf.

    Aside from the fun of the show, I think I'm learning that I micro-manage my Sims too much. Fourteen Sims without shelter (and seven without food!) managed to make it through the night without interference. Then they managed a challenge! 10/10 would join again!

    Maybe a little shade shelter for that sweltering heat. Those poor sims.

    They will have to earn it in a reward challenge. ;)

    I downloaded the Self-Configurable Autonomy Mod from Mod the Sims to keep the survivors from using their cell phones. I also silenced their phones--so glad EA added that in!

    I also have a tendency to micro-manage my Sims, which is why I think the Survivor challenge is so fun. Whenever I play Sims Legacy challenges, I limit myself to controlling only the heir. I wrote some modified rules for that and posted them in the comments of the Legacy Challenge official site.

    I like this challenge a lot and the pure randomness of making a sim in "story mode" really makes this great. Although, I was hoping that Irving would be doing better than he is doing. Poor guy.
  • gameliagamelia Posts: 687 Member
    I adored Irving the first time I saw him and thought he was so cute . . . but now . . . OMG! He's lost the plot! :D

    Loved the first episode, I can't wait to see what happens next! I'd love to try playing one of these out, are you using any challenge rules or anything in particular while you're doing this?
