Re: The Pick-Your-Puzzle Bake-Off - Three familiars on every ocean!
 
 
There will always be alts at those events. Same ocean alts are one thing, inter-ocean alts are another thing. I'm annoyed by both mut mainly the second. However yesterday what won the cake was all of those people from Cobalt actually BRAGGING about not standing a chance but being there for the ONLY purpose of taking a legitimate Hunter player spot.

Congrats mates for totally ruining the spirit of that event.


And this was my earlier point. I hear "bakeoffs are about the BEST of the BEST competing". Yet the Cobalt bakeoff was half-filled with people from Hunter saying "haha hunter pwns coblat sux u n00bz!!" Those are the "best of the best", are they?

Your bakeoff was filled with rude people from Cobalt because ours was filled with rude people from Hunter. No, two wrongs don't make a right, but I guess Hunter shouldn't dish it out if they can't take it either.

Frankly, I'm shocked the whole thing is allowed at all. Sure, there will always be cross-ocean alts who are smart enough to just keep their mouths shut and puzzle, but why are people who brag they are from another ocean - and are dissing the host ocean in the process - not just planked from the ship?


italics for emphasis

The /mute button is your friend. I've been a doubscriber for a long time yet I've never entered an event on your silly ocean, so thanks for that :) You've got to be pretty dense to judge an entire server full of players based on the actions of a few idiots. See: forum poster "Whalebait"

Welp, despite all the usual inter-ocean complaints, yadda yadda yadda, whine whine whine, tart tart tart, it was still a fun event.

As I stated on the boat, I know where my place is in certain puzzles on Cobalt, but not a clue where I stand on other oceans. Yes I was shocked to place 3rd in the prelims, especially since I wasn't paying attention and watching tv at the time. Of course when I started paying attention in the semis I fell to 9th. So meh. It was fun to bilge against some names I have heard, but never had the chance to puzzle against...Rapportus being one of them.

So Cheers to Bia/Minthe for hosting, and Hunter for having the bakeoff this time.

Congrats to the winners as well.

Re: The Pick-Your-Puzzle Bake-Off - Three familiars on every ocean!
And Midnight was full as fast or faster.

Maybe we should use the skelly code, now that it's becoming a clickfest to get in?

Eh. Some bakeoffs are better than no bakeoffs.

Re: The Pick-Your-Puzzle Bake-Off - Three familiars on every ocean!
Midnight ship LITERALLY filled in less than 2 seconds. It's not even a click fest because you get a blue screen from the lag. I swear if you have a slow computer (or a mac) you have absolutely 0 chance of getting on one of these ships. I will look at my auto logs after the bakeoff to see how fast it filled. There were only about 15 "boarding ship" messages after I got on, and I clicked instantaneously with a fast computer/connection.

edit:

Jobbing offer went up at 23:00:47-48, ship filled to 159 at 23:00:50, blue screen cleared and first message was received from another player at 23:00:54

:/

Maybe we need this rather nifty system that waits through several minutes of people clicking and then randomly choses 10% of them to enter the bake-off...

so, I stay till 4am in the morning, so it happens this:

04:00:04] It is currently Mar 20, 2008 8:00:03 PM PDT on the Sage ocean.
[04:00:09] Your crew member Teddygirl has logged on.
[04:00:29] Shiver me timbers! That vessel's full.


(note that rest at least 10 seconds from the "shiver me timbers" since the server was completely lagged).

I believe Malted suggested this type of bake-off be limited to those who are legendary or above in the station of their choosing.....

Call me an elitist snob if you must, but how many non-inc DR's will there be on bilge? 1 is far too many IMO. Oh well, I know I would not of won, but when you click the tab 13 seconds after 8pm.....

I swear it was more like 4 or 5 seconds.


EDIT: Infact I remember it turning 10pm (8 Game Time For Me) while I was turning off my AIM after saying "Turning off incase of lag during Bake-Off."

Give me an everloving break.

Bleeping SF tournaments allow unlimited entrants, MAKE A WAY FOR OMS TO PUT THE PIRACY PUZZLES UP AS A TOURNAMENT . If I see another alt from another ocean win this because they clicked within the first 5 seconds instead of 10...

I don't know what I'll do. I'm already in tears, this is such a let-down.

I'm so glad I stayed up until 4am for this. :(

i agree with vanway, as soon as i clicked go it took 10 secs for the server to say "shiver me timbers.! that vessel's full."

seriously consider using more than one ship or something.

i wonder how viridian will be like tomorow...

I'm not gonna talk about ables, distinguished, respected or even master. put renowned or even GM. How many of them would win a familiar tourney? none. How many of them could win the bake off. Any if they were lucky enough to get a place there. And let's not talk about the ocean-jumpers.

Is it fair? well, I guess everyone has it's opinion. sigh.

um....i think he meant that it's pointless for renowned or even GM puzzlers to join because they're always shut out by the legs and ults (more so for those below renowned)....not that only renowned or up people should participate.


 
How is an event good fun if many ultimate puzzlers cannot even join?


Maybe it's not "fun," but i'd say it's a little more fair to those who aren't blessed with insane puzzling talent. Many people that would win this bake-off have already won previous ones and already have familiars. Like it's been stated before, the fastest clickers win.
