I'm sure some of you recall the embarrassing moments thread we had a few weeks ago? Well I have searched by google and by rote reading, page by page, and not found it. Neither did abgemacht, the sweetheart that he is, when he went searching. Any help locating it would be appreciated. I do not recall who started the thread.
Like seriously, you all have no culture. Most of you don't even make good movies. Many of you talk funny, and don't eat enough meat. Try driving an SUV, it makes you feel powerful. And seriously, what do you do for role models? I mean you don't have ANYTHING that compares to Paris Hilton or Kim Kardashian. Also, why can't you afford designer clothes like a real person? USA, baby. USA.
Would you guys hook JimTheGrey up with some quality gunboat games for a lot lower than 500 point but-in, he's a F2Fer still trying to build up his bank account, and he told me he would kick all your asses if you were brave enough to play him...
Its fun to work my way up in terms of what I'm willing to wager. To some extent I bet here like I do in poker, there's no point in placing all of your holdings down at once. Wait til I get over 2k... then I can be peer-pressured into playing :-)
Plus regardless of how good you are at this game, playing gunboat, at least, its pretty easy to have a bad string of games, because sometimes everyone just gangs up on you.
@ Sarg: Actually we did play together at least once, on a jcbryan07 invitational, won by... jcbryan07: gameID=81116 . Oh, and in the Summer Gunboat Tournament: gameID=68339 ! And here too: gameID=49248 .
So I went and dug up all the EoGs for 7000+ gunboats. I hope this is useful for all you who want to learn, and some of these threads were a bitch to find so please keep this list going as the series continues!
so Don...your 14point GR advantage somehow makes you better than me? make a game and put your money where your mouth is...I'm all in. you organize, pm me the password, and I'll sit here and make you cry.
What I find amusing is that Babak is always lamenting at how bad he is at gunboat, and when you look at top tier games, gunboat and full press wta, he's always at the top. I don't know why this sounds so familiar to me that the rich is always complaining about how they aren't getting enough. :) I think Kestas has got to change this 0% tax rate. All it does is inflate the economy.
I say we do 10% for wta games, 5% for ppsc, 5% gunboats, 5% full press and so forth (all taxes are cumulative of course).
How do they do things like the world golf rankings, etc?
If you want a comprehensive ranking system for GB, I think weighting tournament results is a good basis. Could make really make for more competive games. We already have a couple majors in the two big gb tourney. And if we can factor any "organized" event, like the jcbryan series' and sargmacher's series.
I wish I had an idea on how to do something like this.
