Creech notes with sadness that Meshuggah1979 is correct. Creech also notes that scoring 21 achievements in one day was not enough to save Corrupt. Corrupt is now dead to me.

It brings Skorpion much happiness that he won't receive the duckface award either.

Nozza is over the moon that he is still "in it, to win it"! Nozza's sadness goes out to Corrupt for falling at the first hurdle.

Jappe feels your pain, Corrupt. If the number would've been 25 on the first day he would have probably put a duck face as his avatar for the rest of the year.

Jappe is also surprised by the amount of people who didn't post their scores.

Only 19 opponents left!

We all experience many freakish and unexpected events - you have to be open to suffering a little. The philosopher Schopenhauer talked about how out of the randomness, there is an apparent intention in the fate of an individual that can be glimpsed later on. When you are an old guy, you can look back, and maybe this rambling life has some through-line. Others can see it better sometimes. But when you glimpse it yourself, you see it more clearly than anyone. Viggo Mortensen

The Capn is highly disappointed with all who were completely unable earn even a single achievement. Many games hand them out like participant ribbons at an elementary school sports day.

Still, it is good to not be the first one out. The Capn has hopes of posting his number with his first new completion in quite some time. However, the Witcher 2 is an awesome and challenging game.

Corrupt, you tried your best and you failed miserably. The lesson here is: "Never try."

FYI to all!


For those unaware, several people posted in the initial discussion thread in the Subscriber's forum instead of in the scoring thread in the Tournaments forum. Most of those were after the 3am cut off regardless, so they had no impact on the contest. However, StayonTarget posted before 3am. I had already posted results stating he was eliminated, but when I saw he had posted before 3am I replied in that thread that I would make a decision about his participation.

While I understand that I am the final adjudicator and all, I also like to be as open and forthright as possible. As such, here is a brief summary of the factors that weighed into my decision:

  • His post was made before the cut off, and the final edit on it was also before the cut off
  • His post included commentary that indicated he had looked for a scoring thread
  • His entry does not impact the elimination based on the random number
  • There are no material prizes involved, so no reason to attempt fraud
  • The underlying purpose is to have fun and build the community, and excluding his entry does not further that purpose in any way
As such, my decision is to include his entry as valid and he will continue to be a participant.

You could still add up your score each day and see if you would have stayed in or not. Jamie1000013 is planning to when he gets knocked out today or tomorrow. Jamie1000013 is aiming for maybe 3 knockouts before it finishes.

Ceris is only laugh if the Gods of Random.org turn against the 1 Daily Number worshipers. Ceris is also trying to be careful with his achievements to not earn more than other people.

The math on the tournament is very clear. The best way to win is to score 26+ per day. If that is not feasible, the next best approach is to score 1, or exactly one less than another participant. This is presuming that not everyone in the tournament takes the ideal approach, however, because if everyone scores 1, all of you lose at once.

Spade now hopes the number is 1.

Also, gaining 26+ grants you safe that day? Interesting...

The math on the tournament is very clear. The best way to win is to score 26+ per day. If that is not feasible, the next best approach is to score 1, or exactly one less than another participant. This is presuming that not everyone in the tournament takes the ideal approach, however, because if everyone scores 1, all of you lose at once.

Scoring one less achievement than another participant was what Ceris was thinking. Also, as a community as a whole we could make this tournament never end by always scoring 1 achievement a day!

Ceris is also thinking the 3rd person thing is getting old. Or maybe he has just posted here too much...

Then you must think being a staff member is getting old.
