The Capn would like to use his protective powers one more time. He beseaches the gods of random.org to draw a low number. He asks them to see the numerological irony in gaming and see that the sum of the 360 is 9. The sum of the next gen is 9. The sum of all Playstations is 9. There have been 9 different Nintendo consoles (6 tv based, 3 handheld). Shall Skorpion be eliminated tomorrow? 9.

The gods of random.org were clearly offended at the numerology approach and decided to slay Skorpion x360a.

Congrats to FabledGamerHero for being the Last Man Standing!


Also, Creech really had a blast with this competition and feels Capn Doug is owed a public thanks for thinking of the rules.

LOL much appreciated effort Capn Doug. Skorpion also forgot to thank you for coming up with the idea for this tournament. Great idea indeed so thank you!

Yes, congratulations to the winners. I'm surprised at how long everyone was able to stay in the safe zone. 20 days of 26+ achievements is pretty respectable. The Capn will miss the third person insanity, but is thankful this won't still be going on in September (it really could have).

And of course the gods were offended. Numerology doesn't require The Capn to actually do anything, just pull things out of his ass.

And ideas are The Capn's specialty. Actually following through on those ideas.... Not so much.

Congratulations Fabled. Getting 26+ achievements in a day is tough; getting 26+ achievements 20 days in a row is insane.

Skorpion, good on you for recognizing real life comes first. I hope whatever the family emergency was ended up or ends up okay.

Congrats to Fabled for winning and congrats to everyone who took part. I liked the achievement count approach more than achievement score because it gave value to low point games.
