...A party of five (Prizes included!!)

ConstantineMerusConstantineMerus LondonMember RarePosts: 994
I'm sleep deprived, almost drunk and worried sick about @Kyleran. So I thought it's time for a fun post. Well, it sounds fun in my head at least. I might find it extremely silly when I am almost sober, and you might find it utterly trash. But here it goes... a fun post!

You're forming a group, a fellowship, to clear a horrible horrible dungeon. It's going to be a long, hard, dramatic, traumatic run. 

The party needs a Tank, a Healer, a DPS, a CC, and a Support. Of course, you yourself can take any of the roles you want. But, to fill the rest of the group, I am giving you the ultimate dungeon finder tool. You can cast in any famous person you want, for any role you want. 

You have to name four celebrities, famous people, or anyone with a Wikipedia page, but it needs to be a person, a human being. Assign them to a role and state your reasons why they would be proper for the job.

Now to make it more interesting...
The top 3 answers would receive a Steam gift card valued at $50, $25 and $10. Talk about being almost drunk, eh? But hey, I promise ya I'd stay true to my word. 

Rules of the competition: 
#1 You do not talk about this contest!
#2 You do not... talk about this... contest!!
#3 If you are participating, you have to have at least 100 posts on these forums. 
#4 Each participant is allowed only one post
#5 You can use duplicates from previous posts, but you have to have a VERY different reason for it. 
#6 You cannot edit your post. 

Jury Members: 
  • Me, of course
  • Any of the +rare members--Judges cannot participate in the contest though. 
  • Any of the site's staff-again, if you become a judge, then you cannot participate. 

 
Winners will be announced after the upcoming weekend. 

I'm also willing to send the Steam codes to one of the staff, so you'd know I am true to my word!

Go!!!

PS. I'm not sure if I'm breaking any rules here. My apologies in advanced if I did.

    Tank: Mel Gibson - this guy is a Grade A nutjob who loves to take a beating. Seriously, this guy is so off his nut that he is obsessed with corporal punishment (part of his catholic faith, but lets not go there). Rewatch his movies and you will notice in every one, there is an extended scene where he just gets the shit kicked out of him for ages. Perfect tank material! He's also incredibly offensive so you'd hope enemies would naturally want to kill him (aggro!). Also provides a convenient scapegoat should we fail. I would just have to keep him muted on vent.

    Healer: Felicia Day - she's quite funny, so she'd lift your spirits. She's a big old geek and a big fan of MMOs, so she'd be pretty good at the game so you'd have a reliable healer. I also think that she'd occasionally let Mel die, just for fun, and that would keep me amused. 

    DPS: Alexander Lugwig - he's quite young so hopefully picks up gaming easily. He was awesome in Vikings so has first hand experience of sword fighting. I would hope he has the presence of mind to keep raid awareness and not just charge about. 

    CC: Christoph Waltz - dude is just funny, seems quite wise so I would hope he would make a good CC'er. Would keep us entertained in between mezzes!

    Support: Me - this is my favourite role in MMOs anyway


    Backup plan:

    Tank - Lucy Lawless
    Healer - Emma Watson
    DPS - Scarlett Johanson
    CC - Charlize Theron
    Support - Me

    Because, well, we're living in a fantasy here, may as well use the opportunity to flirt with some good looking rich women in a vain attempt to become a kept man!

    Tank - Jason Momoa, because he is like a living half-giant - and he can do some damage too, cast some CC, throw some axes (look at it on youtube). I like offensive Tanks.

    Healer - Liv Kristine, former Theatre of Tragedy lead vocal (first 5 albums). She is a living Siren (just listen to the song with the same name from one of my all time favorite albums from one of my all time favorite bands). Her voice is mind bending (also recommend listen to Venus - where she shines the most) beautiful and I think she would portray an amazing "song-healing-buffing" type of support - with a Gothic skin.

    DPS - Keanu Reeves as Keanu Reeves as John Wick (which is essentially Keanu Reeves in bad mood). His videos of training with guns for the movie are amazing. He would portray a good ranged ADC focused on critical hits and finishing enemies (with headshots, lots of them).

    CC - Amy Schumer, I mean, she opens her mouth and stuns everyone, including her team. Her ultimate ability is "making another really bad movie" which casts lethargy, poison and Intelligence reduction debuffs to anyone watching her.  

    Support - Epic Sax Guy. I mean, look those moves! They should inspire ...something.

    Alternative support: @cameltosis, because is his favorite role and is his opportunity to flirt with some good looking rich woman in a vain attempt to become a kept man!

    Alright. This is certainly not the worst hangover I've woken up to. It's not like I did give away the farm again--yeah I've once done that, the cows all went moo

    I stand by my word though, winners will receive the promised prizes. But only 2 entrants so far? You know you can use your imagination for other stuff besides conspiracy theories, eh?

    @Nycteliosis right, it really is a fun idea. I admit I haven't really thought it through, just the first names popped in mind (with the criteria of actual persons)
    Healer - me, that's my first and main role

    Tank - Floyd Mayweather. C'mon, that dude is literally the living example of an Evade/Parry tank :smiley:  (even if almost killed boxing with that style)

    Dps - Chuck Norris.   'nuff said.

    CC - Harry Houdini. He could easily draw the attention of any crowd, breaking their induction. Could shock (stun) them too. And as a bonus, his chains. Nobody would cc break from those chains :wink:

    Support - Jamie Oliver. He's a helpful guy on general, plus he could buff the party with nice food. May have some hidden talents for debuff too (just ask PETA :smiley: )


    edit: just because you said no edits :wink:  seriously though, I don't touch steamy gabe's stuff, so pick someone better for the gift cards, I wouldn't use it anyways

    I could put it above, since it's already edited and out of the contest ( :smiley: ) but it worths a separate one...

    Awesome pick! Never thought I'll see ToT mentioned here :wink:  Aégis was my favourite album from those years... but then an another Theater released Metropolis Pt. 2 and I became unfaithful to Poppea and the rest of the ladies.
    (Lorelei and Cassandra were great songs too)

    a Tank, a Healer, a DPS, a CC, and a Support

    Tank - Chuck Norris, not only would he make a good leader, he'd tank anything and everything. Are we fighting Diablo in Diablo 3? No problem, Diablo couldn't even scratch Chuck Norris. Are we fighting the Terminator? No problem, even the Terminator is afraid of Chuck norris. Not only that, but he could solo EVERYTHING and be an unstoppable juggernut. Everyone else is just along for the ride. His race would be BadAss, and only he can be that race. For class, he'd be Immortal, since he can never die or be killed or even be hurt

    Healer - Myself, I prefer healing in MMOs and its my favorite role. Though I'd probably be the comedic healer with one liners and slapstick puns and overused memes. I'd also be the Troll race because I love trolling trolling trolling. For class? I'd be the troll class, so I would be Troll Troll

    Crowd Control - Angelina Jolie. Why? Well she is one of the most bad ass famous woman out there. She takes shit from no one. I can definitely imagine her being great at controlling crowds, and hopefully she'd be good at it, which I'd have no doubt. Her race would be Reptilian (but she is always disguised as a Human), and her class would be Scientologist

    Support - Will Smith. Why? Well I think he'd be the guy who'd be great at keeping morale up, keeping people entertained. He'd be able to talk opponents down, but also make the group laugh (hence morale up/entertained). He'd also act as a diplomat/charismatic guy, since he is actually a very friendly guy who is a great family man and instantly likable. His race would be Human, I know not most creative but most fitting, and his class would be Secret Agent, or otherwise known to those close to him, Man in Black

    (edit: Added a tiny thing with the CC person. It will be only thing I change/add. I meant to include it but forgot, but I did see the rule about not editing the post)

    Sorry about the edited post rule. I edited it pretty shortly after posting, forgot to include one thing lol. It'll be the only edit I do to it though, but if its too big a deal, I can just remove the line I added. (its the CC line after the reptilian race, the line in parenthesis)

    Tank: Sean Bean: Since he dies in every single movie role he has, this is likely the scenario in this upcoming group.

    Healer: Myself: I'm a healthcare professional that is posting on this site instead of seeing patients. I ain't healing nothing at this time. 

    DPS: Kanye West: He would think himself the best and most important asset on the team regardless of the validity. He will assume no one deserves credit except for him. 

    CC: Donald Trump: He always controls the biggest crowds and lets everyone know how big the crowd is. He is the best crowd controller ever, the crowd is yuge. Look at the crowd!!

    Support: Nicholas Cage: He is not good enough to support any movie at this time. Hence, he will not be able to support this group either.

    Great thread :D

    Tank - The man himself Butterbean (Eric Esch) Good at taking hits, and good at giving them. Has a high knockout ratio so he would be pretty good at stun locking the enemy. Due to his sheer size he would be great to just stand behind whilst he soaks damage. Lets face it, this guy would look glorious in plate :D

    BOOSH


    Healer - The current (14th)Dalai Lama, the guy is zen embodied. I can imagine him giving out some epic spiritual healing and keeping the peace. Plus if anyone is going to be able to conjure up a defence bubble, it's this guy. Bet he can levitate too.

    DPS - I have to go with good old Iron Mike Tyson (in his prime, somewhat even now though). Pure savage, stick some claws on the guy and you have real life Wolverine. The guy loves fighting, don't think he is scared of doing it, in fact I think an outlet for all of his rage would be perfect. Hopefully the presence of the Dalai Lama can help keep him calm when needed.

    CC - Vladimir Putin, Toss up between him and Kim. Both are good at controlling people, but Vlad has that extra bit of asskickery built in to boot. Ex KGB so he knows how to subdue a dude.

    Support - Dej Loaf, Raps to take care of her fam. Played basketball so knows how to play in a team. Studied nursing for three semesters so knows how to support when needed. She is also a total badass...try her....

    Ok this should be fun. What a great idea for a thread, even if there wasn’t a prize involved.

     

    Tank: Dwayne Johnson. He can dish it out, but he can also take the beating. Stoneskin tank… get it, because hes The Rock.

    Healer: The Pope. Because, well duh, hes the Pope. Best Cleric worldwide.

    DPS: Me (mage dps, not melee or ranged) because Im a Mother F***ing Sorcerer.

    CC: Chris Angel (or alt. David Blaine) Illusionists are the best CC. Dazzle the crowd and they are rooted and confused.

    Support: William Shakespeare, because I always think Bard is great support.

    Great answers so far, many of them genuinely made me laugh. I still like to have more people in this silly game of ours. Where's the rest of them regulars? @Kyleran, @Torval, @blueturtle13, @DMkano, @Iselin, @Sovrath, @Slapshot1188, @Jean-Luc_Picard, @Eldurian, and many others! Maybe you let go of whether Destiny 2 is an MMO or not for a while and get silly instead! (oh the irony)

    You know @Gdemami lols at every post, and I remember he once wrote "I give lols at posts that make me laugh for real--something like that". Let's see if you can make us laugh now, well, in a good way. 

    How about @BillMurphy, you've always been a good sport. @SBFord, I know you want to! B)  

    Maybe even some celebrities.. @MarkJacobs we'd love to see your list!  

    Maybe the staff don't want to win anything on their own site, or Mr. Jacobs is too busy to participate in a silly contest for a Steam gift card. That's right.

    I tell you what. If any of the fine staff of mmorpg.com, or Mr. Jacobs, ended up among the top, I'd make a donation to Hurricane Harvey's victims through Red Cross (or any other cause of your choosing but has to be a legit charity) under your name for the amount of $100 and will send you the receipt. I know that ain't much, but what do you expect from a random stranger on the forums?

    Maybe some good can come out of a silly thread (and me being drunk) for once.

    Go!!

    PS. Again, if I have broken any rules--I do apologize.

    a Tank, a Healer, a DPS, a CC, and a Support

    Tank = @TheScavenger because no matter how many people trash or flame his threads he just keeps on posting.
    Healer = @MikeB because he just sits back and watches the melee unfold, and you never want your healer in the center of the action.
    DPS = @Blorpykins if he put even half the effort into trashing our enemies as he does trashing SOTA they would stand a chance.
    CC = @SBFord with the powerful CCs of "Lock Thread" and "Ban User"
    Support = @Gdemami. We could give him an ability called "LoL" that raises allied defense and lowers enemy defense and he'd have no trouble keeping it constantly applied to everyone.
