Ghost Rating Challenge

#1 Post by Yonni » Fri Aug 28, 2020 2:39 pm

Hi all,

The Master's tournament is winding down so I'm in need of a new game and I imagine some others out there are too. Let's try get some new ones going with a GR challenge.

For those unfamiliar, we will fill games in order of Ghost Rating. If we have 7 players, we'll fill one game. If we have 14, we'll fill two, etc. You'll get a chance to play against some similarly rated players in a hopefully competitive game. As default, let's say 48hr/turn non-anon WTA but each game can of course figure that out among themselves.

To sign up, copy and paste the list below adding yourself and your classic map, full press Ghost Rating rank:

1. Yonni - 5
7

Go back to the last month you were before you dropped off.

Thought you retired from online play?

If it were gunboat, I would sign up. I don't have time for press in these interesting real world times.

I’m with BunnyGo. It’s a great idea, but I don’t have time for a press game right now. We’ll have to start a gunboat one once this one gets off the ground.p

Sadly I don’t see my circumstances changing in 2020.

I try to avoid non-live press. It kills my sleep. Are you playing WeaselMoot tonight, coward? ;)

@Yonni I am willing to play when "Media Wars" finishes. I am keeping another journal for that match (this time, a vlog!), so it is about twice as much effort (for me) as a normal press game. (Plus, the ODC finals is still ongoing.)

When "Media Wars" ends, I'll play with you. It's hard to estimate when that match might end, but we are in 1908 if that helps.

I'm out of town from sept 11th to 14th so starting after that works for me. That should line up more or less.

1. MadMarx - 4.5 (GR = 350.189)
2. Yonni - 5
3. swordsman3003 - 16.5 (GR = 248.157)
4. TheFlyingBoat - 35

Also looking for a delayed start... Was thinking January, but mid-September or after will work...
