Coming Soon to Channel TSC! Marathon 2: Revenge of the Marathon
« on: January 11, 2009, 04:32:01 AM »
In essence this was Paraxade's idea, Im simply posting it because Im bored.

So there were come hiccoughs at the start of yesterdays marathon, most notably that everyone expected 11PM to be the start time, and not the beginning of the preparation (as I had intended but I fucking fell asleep like a retard). Because of this, Miles ended up missing the start of the marathon and subsequently not competing, even after directly notifying people involved that he would be a few minutes late.

Apart from Miles, a few other people that had intended to take part ended up missing it too, namely eredani, Upth, and almost myself, I joined in when I woke up an hour after the start.

Paraxade's idea was simply to rehost the marathon and give everyone who missed out for one reason or another the chance to do it again, though I dont see why anyone who participated yesterday cant participate again should they so wish too.

The rules seemed to work ok from what I read of the log, and the only real issue was people hounding RR to countdown ASAP, so they should be fine.

I guess we could run Marathon2 in a fortnights time, saturday 11PM GMT again, as that gives anyone that participated yesterday a break if they want to compete again.

Ill add a signups tally here eventually if numbers permit it

Entrants:

RPG
Quartz
SJ
Achlys
Emerl?
Cruizer
FKE
Paraxade

I personally think that anyone who went NO START NOW shouldn't be able to race in this one.

Edit: Okay, forget me participating, didn't see it was 2 weeks from now.

Then, y'know, you should pick a time that doesn't suck. Granted I'm gone all weekend this time as it is my birthday Friday and I will be visiting my bro for the entire weekend. There will be hockey, B-Dubs, and Rock Band. And maybe other stuff too (like a Late Night[tm] or two), but that's the important stuff.

How about instead of having just a start time we have a gathering time. Everyone must be in #channel before x:xx am/pm so we can start at y:yy am/pm. This was we know what time we have to be there.

Okay so.....I am now NOT able to enter the marathon this time. I happen to be going to a family outing down at Wollongong. So it'd be a bit difficult to try and play there.

HOWEVER. I still may be able to get 2 other players to join. I am still talking to them about it so they aren't confirmed.

Due to the low level of interest so far I think it may simply be appropriate to can Marathon2 until some other time when people will want to do it again, sorry to the folks that missed the first one :(

Miles chill!

you weren't the only one that started late or missed out entirely.  this type of behavior isn't the kind I'd expect from someone as awesome as you were.  people fucked up and they admitted it, just let it go already.

I might end up doing this. but its more likely end up doing what stefen did last time and just take peoples times etc.  maybe earlier would be better? if we did this this saturday would miles and cruizer be able to show up?

I'll see if I can do this. Not sure, I missed it before. i may not get to do this so. Don't be suprised when I post a stat. But I don't see it happening. So there is a 30% chance I get to do it.

What, I will so go on this marathon, I just haven't said so yet. No CANNING IT! Also...I read this thread a couple days ago, and don't feel like reading through it again...so are people who played last time still elligible, I assume so since Cruizer is still going. So people should marathon again! YOU MUST MARATHON. Ok, and I shall talk it up in chat!
