WCC week 3 : game is ROADBLST

Post by Phil Lamat » Wed May 29, 2002 9:32 pm

Week 2 is over : congrats again to Roncli for his impressive score on joyjoy !

Three guys are close in general ranking : BBH (13), QRS (12) and Roncli (10)

Now let's go for week 3 with a racing game : Road Blasters

Happy driving to all (warps will be allowed)

Roadblasters is ok, yesterday finished the game using cheat, nice finishing music.

A question: As I don't have internet connection at home, but at work...What if I play late wednesday evening a good score? Do I have to get at work at night just to upload the recording(I believe competition ends at 2:00 am local time), or can I just upload it in the morning at work?

Otherwise I get only 6 day competition time :(

What do you think?

If you people think no, because of possibility for 12 hour or so advantage=time cheat (which is very unlikely...after 02:00...) There is allways a (lame) change to send a text message containing the score to Phils mobile?

Sorry Tommi ...
I know it is not easy if you haven't any connection at home, but rules are rules and I can't make any exception

You still have today and tomorrow night to get a good score and upload it the day after at work just in time for wcc, but if you upload thursday it would be irreceivable for rankings ; just because it wouldn't be fair for other players, and because I usually update my page a little after 00:gmt

I hope despite of that you will be able to join

Fuck, I would be very angry if I wouldn't live so near to work.

Phil, you don't have a cell phone? If I text you a message during the time of the competition, that contains my wednesday evening best score, I can not see why it wouldn't qualify.
You can send your phone number to my private mail ofcourse..., trust me, I won't make many obscene/dirty calls!

A bit a matter of principle this is my friend.

Take it easy Tommi : I wasn't at home yesterday night ...

As BBH (and other players?) is also very close of the second 200k bonus, that's what I'm proposing to help you for tonight :
I give you my home phone number by private email, and if you beat your score, just phone me the score before 0:00 gmt ;
then I will put it on the board so that other players know it ; I will update my page as usually a little after 0:00gmt

BUT in an other WCC player is against this procedure, then he has to say it on this thread and you score will not be receivable if it isn't uploaded before 0:00gmt

I hope this is fair to you ...

As Phil has already said : "Rules are rules".
For me, i'm sleeping at 00:00 because i'm working tomorrow so i don't upload any scores.
I think Rules is for everyone, no exception :x

I'm cool as a f****g snow-white :-]

Sounds fair enough. I just uploaded the latest score, that shall do the trick for me.
Maybe I call you next game, if it comes reaaally close.


Love,

Tommi

(didn't see your message when wrote previous one)

Hypothetical now, but I think you are wrong.
What if I had 10km to work.
Or if I just would have tried to upload a recording, but internet connection would have been down. This case you wouldn't except email...?
