Survivor Winners at War Prediction Game Details

Author Brant    Category All, Miscellaneous     Tags

Last May, a total of 1,000 users signed up for the BrantSteele Survivor 40: Winners at War Prediction Game.

The premiere of the season is almost here. One lucky prize winner (or more if there is a tie) will win a simple simulator of their choice from a list of 47 shows in a Previous Survey. If the winner can’t be contacted, next in line will get the prize.

Choices were supposed to be unique, but there was a technical error for a brief time period where some users were able to submit the same selections that others had already chosen.

The Point Structure is currently the same as the prediction game for Survivor Game Changers except for the addition of the Edge of Extinction twist. After the premiere episode, any additional twists will be evaluated to see if they can be incorporated into the point structure. Then the point structure will be finalized.

Please post a comment if you have any thoughts or suggestions.

Australian Survivor All-Stars, RuPaul’s Drag Race 12, Big Brother Brasil 20, Dancing With the Stars 28, American Idol 17, MasterChef 10, and The Amazing Race Canada 7 are among the season of shows that have been added to all of the simulators.

Thanks to AEllis95, Brandon, and Mira for helping with these cast photos among the many other users who reported that these seasons needed updated. Please report if you see any issues. There are new shows of cast photos planned for later this year for the newer BrantSteele.com cast photos, with many of the photos already edited. A few structural changes will be made first with Edit Cast and Random Cast before it will be ready to handle the new shows.

You can see a list of the shows here that we currently support: Cast Photo Overview. Some of the most recent shows may still need added.

Christmas Update – Australian Survivor 2016

Author Brant    Category All, Simulator Updates     Tags

A simulator for Australian Survivor 2016 has been released!

This is not the Custom Template, but it’s a season to help fill the gap until that is ready. You may be wondering, why was Australian Survivor 2016 made instead of Survivor 39: Island of the Idols?

Both seasons were started at the same time, and I decided to complete Australian Survivor 2016 because it was less time-consuming to incorporate most of the twists. Survivor 39 would resemble Ghost Island with many secret advantages that were missing from the simulator because they would take too long to program. Australian Survivor 2016 gives users a new cast size option and some twists that are missing from Survivor 33-38.

Thanks to Brandon for testing this season for bugs and running a live simulation in the Discord server to make sure it worked correctly.

Please leave comments if you see any issues.
