[Club Cyrus] Game of Thrones Special - Character Reveals!

trial_by_rocket_league.jpg

Welcome to the highly anticipated Game of Thrones Rocket League Special! On Sunday 20th August, 12 participants will enter the Throne Room, but only 1 can sit on the Iron Throne - who will it be?

Cyrus Gaming is organising a 'Game of Thrones' themed Rocket League night, so it's bound to be full of gratuitous violence and nudity. Or it will just be your standard Rocket League fare with a few GoT quotes thrown in whenever somebody scores. Either way, it's bound to be a massive let down and a complete waste of time - but we'll press ahead with it anyway!

If you would like to follow the action, check back on our website from 19:30 UK onwards to catch the live streams.

So without further ado, here is our cast list, in alphabetical order:

----------------------------

Circus is... Grey Worm

"Unsullied fear nothing."

Commander of the Unsullied, Grey Worm is disciplined, well-trained and deadly in combat. Chosen by his peers to lead them, he has a deep sense of duty and appreciates the structures of order and command. Now I'm not implying that Circus was also castrated as a child, but since I've known him he has only spoken about killing in The Division, killing in Foxhole, construction work and solar panels - this is clearly not a man exuding sexual desires. Make up your own mind, folks!

----------------------------

Daemion is... Ramsay Bolton

"You should hold onto your candles, the nights are so long now."

Sadistic, sociopathic, and always willing to commit unimaginably humiliating acts of sexual depravity in order to satisfy his uniquely perverted fantasies, Daemion makes Ramsay Bolton look like a well-adjusted member of society. Daemion boasts of engaging in 10-hour marathon sessions in the bedroom - hold onto your candles, ladies!

----------------------------

Dia is... Margaery Tyrell

margarey-tyrell.jpg

"I want to be the queen."

So desperate in her quest to be queen, Margaery Tyrell was willing to marry the greatest, most ruthless and utter wanker ever to sit on the Iron Throne. And his brother. And her brother's gay lover. She hid her schemes through an outwardly amiable facade, however her attempts at manipulation and her desire to keep other women away from the Throne Room will ultimately lead to her downfall.

----------------------------

Iselore is... Theon "Reek" Greyjoy

theon-greyjoy.jpg

"I made a choice... And I chose wrong. And I've burned everything down."

Weak, self-doubting, broken, emasculated, unreliable, and always, always a disappointment. But enough about Iselore - Theon Greyjoy is a tragic character who struggles with his identity, belonging and courage to speak and act as he truly wishes. He is known for making misguided choices, and ultimately burning the bridges of family and friendship.

----------------------------

Nostrau is... Petyr "Littlefinger" Baelish

littlefinger.jpg

"Always keep your foes confused. If they don't know who you are or what you want, they can't know what you plan to do next."

Cold, calculating, and controlling - Petyr Baelish plays chess while others are playing checkers. Behind his calm, often pleasant exterior hides a shrewd Machiavellian monster with loyalty only to himself. I have absolutely no doubt that Nostrau is plotting the downfall of Cyrus, and I'm not even mad - I'm fascinated to see how he will manufacture it!

----------------------------

Peedy is... Jorah Mormont

jorah-mormont2.jpg

"All I've ever wanted was to serve you."

Jorah Mormont is a most loyal, earnest subject who is always the first to volunteer service, no matter the personal cost or danger. While his character develops a deep yet unrequited love for his leader, the same cannot be said for our Peedy, who enjoys a fully reciprocal bromance with King of Cyrus, Redh. Preedhy 4ever, bitches!!


----------------------------

Raffles is... Tormund Giantsbane

tormund-giantsbane.jpg

"I have a jug of sour goat's milk, stronger than any of that grape water you Southern twats like sucking on."

Alpha, in a rough and gruff Northern kind of way, Tormund Giantsbane is a Manly Man amongst men. Just like his taste in tall women, his tales can become a tad elevated too, but you shouldn't hold this against him as his heart is true and his intentions are pure. Just as Tormund is the voice of the wildlings, so is Raffles the voice of Cyrus.

----------------------------

Redh is... Sandor "The Hound" Clegane

sandor-clegane.jpg

"Any man dies with a clean sword, I'll rape his fucking corpse!"

Brutal in his treatment of others, direct with his words, wallowing in cynicism, yet a molten marshmallow fluffy core, Sandor "The Hound" Clegane is the perfect match for our fearless leader Redh. This man isn't afraid to tell you you're all shit, and that's just fine with me!

----------------------------

Snikmund is... Renly Baratheon

renly-baratheon.jpg

"If you want hairless, maybe you should find a little boy."

Renly Baratheon is charismatic, stylish, and a raging closet homosexual. Well, 1 match out of 3 isn't bad! Snikmund still to this day denies his obvious tendencies towards the more rainbow-coloured end of the sexuality spectrum, however his tongue deceives him as he often slips up in conversation. Just recently he admitted that he hadn't had a boyfriend "in months"... Hang in there, Snik - your knight in shining armour will come soon enough!

----------------------------

Struckd is... Lord Varys

lord-varys.jpg

"Do you know I have no idea where they are? And we had been so close."

Lord Varys has separation issues... He has been separated from his balls! This is exactly the feeling one gets when joining a new social circle or, in our case, guild - you tend to remove your balls and keep them in a box rather than getting entangled in any drama or conflict. But thankfully, unlike for Lord Varys, this condition is not permament, and it will surely not be long before Struckd stops playing "nice new guy" and starts showing his teeth. Queen of Drama Iselore cannot wait!

----------------------------

Vidda is... Sir Cormac

ed-sheeran.jpg

"He rode to a woman’s sigh."

Who could forget Sir Cormac - the media standout from the opening episode of season 7? Sure, it may have been a fleeting appearance with no real substance, but as far as cameo appearances go it was certainly impactful. Not necessarily in a positive way, however... Let's all hope that Vidda can raise his game and get a starring role in Cyrus, rather than be that uncommitted, unreliable shit-talker that he currently is!

----------------------------

Vikingstad is... Hodor

hodor.jpg

"Hodor, Hodor."

A man of few words he may be, but Hodor's words are carefully chosen and ultimately insightful. Hodor is afraid of violence, but when the time comes is capable of dishing out some savage beatings - however he must be 'warged' into action. Vikingstad also demonstrated these traits during "The One Siege" in Conan Exiles, when the order was given for everyone to charge the enemy at our walls, only for him to stay back, cowering in the safety of our keep, and instead rain arrows on everyone below - us included!

----------------------------

Now you know the cast, here is how the competition will proceed. The evening will be split into 3 main sections, with a grand final to cap things off. Each section is for a different number of players per team starting with 4v4 until we get to the final 1v1 showdown.

Every player on the winning team will receive 3 points, and in the event of a league tie the winner will be decided by overall goal difference.

Here are the match ups:

ROUND ONE: 4 vs 4 Matches

round_1.png

ROUND TWO: 3 vs 3 Matches

round_2.png

ROUND THREE: 2 vs 2 Matches

round_3.png


GRAND FINAL: 1 vs 1 Showmatch

After the above matches, the top two players will face off in a 1 vs 1 showmatch with the others spectating. Cheer for your favourite, throw rotten vegetables at his opponent, but at the end of it all be prepared to bend the knee to the newly-crowned King or Queen of Rocket League!

LET THE GAMES BEGIN!

Holy shit man, what are your settings and your app? O.O That's fantastic quality.
I'll link it all tonight when I get home.

I spent a bit of time working but I think my bitrate is slightly upped to 6k as rocket league is needs a little bit more oomph to get it to the 60fps

I just want to say thanks again to @Raffles for his preparation and work for this night. I rewatched the stream on Iselore's twitch channel, and he had some excellent zingers in there that I don't think some of you appreciated at the time (tough crowd, impatient bastards), and I know he also left out a lot of stuff he'd written. More props are deserved!

I also finally saw the latest GoT episode last night, and it freaked me out how much Raffles sounded like Tormund at times! Really made the episode more interesting :D

Ha, cheers. I think the accent just got in the way. Happy to it next time as well, perhaps with less of the hybrid schwarzenegger/geordie vibe. Perhaps a Star Wars theme? Was thinking of some kind of format where we have 2 sides, light side and dark side of the force with no individual winner. This would allow us to mix up the comps and maybe have Iselore play both side in an Anakin / Darth Vader type role, so it doesn't get lop sided.

I thought your accent at times was spot on, but it was funny when it went into Arnold mode too! You did a great job - I think a couple of people (cough @Peedy cough) were a little impatient to get started which probably didn't help your 'performance'. It's not easy to perform under pressure, IS IT GUYS?!! I just hope you feel appreciated - you definitely added to the night for me, and you are great at this kind of thing - your D&D night would have been amazing!

I liked your suggestion from a while ago too about the 80s buddy cop duo or something. Star Wars could be good also, and I already know that @Iselore would be Jar Jar :p

Next time I'll include the character names in the match schedule to avoid confusion! :D

Oh, although I hate RP I was really excited about the D&D night. Still hoping, still hoping. You did do a great job, @Raffles! Thank you!!!

All up for another themed rocket league match up

I've been honing my skills...I can now HIT the ball reliably.
 
#56
I see that you have great fun here ;-)
My favorite game (Rocket League) and my favorite series (Games of Throne) - can I still join?
Edit: I'd like to be Jon Snow. In the previous work everyone got a hero, I got Jon Snow before he became a great leader - because he still had his little victory, which almost nobody noticed
