I had a suspicion that people didn't want to enter the nethack competition because they were intimidated by pros like Esperath or myself ascending tourists and getting huge scores. I still have that suspicion, though to be honest if we'd had enough people we would have done seperate brackets so it shouldn't have mattered.

The game was a judged event, and someone who managed to get crushed by a rock placed third. I had this conversation with doom - any one of you could have made it to floor ten, died in some hilarious way, made a good story about it and potentially stole the gold. The event wasn't about bruteforcing a high score with pudding farming, or making it through gehennom as a tourist, it was about playing Nethack in as impressive a manner possible. If this means dual wielding warhammers to metal music and killing vlad by throwing vampire corpses at him, then so be it. Who cares if you just happen to be the easiest class and playing in the scummiest way.

I put the better part of 80 hours into my nethack ascension. This is because I was insistent on playing the hardest classes in the game - half of my attempts were at wishless/genoless conducts. But that's because I was trying to do things the hard way. The final game I played, the one where I did ascend, was something like 6 hours. What clinched my ascension wasn't a lucky wish, it was a single altar artifact - Mjollnir - and a decent AC. You practically start with both of these as a valkyrie. There was a 30 day stretch to do the event in, and there's no reason at least one person from each nation could have given it a real shot. What makes it especially dissapointing is that we had a dozen wow players and everyone on the boards enjoys diablo, so it's not like we're going incredibly out of genre here. I'd have expected this if Nethack was a rougelike football game.

I didn't try because I've yet to make it past the Gnomish Mines, let alone start building an ascension kit.

Two of the entries were guys who died within 1-3 floors.

The Bronze entry only got seven levels down.

Making it to the gnomish mines, and dying in the gnomish mines, is at least trying, which is better than not bothering at all.

Then I'd have wasted time coming last. There are other, even less productive ways I could be spending my time.

Well you see, I have a very convenient excuse that excuses me from even putting forth effort.

Oh, you mean if I had put forth any value of effort greater than zero, I'd have probably placed? Well, I clearly would have lost because it's easy to read the future in hindsight.

I hope you don't apply this line of thinking to your everyday life, JD.

Here's a bit of feedback for the sake of archivery:   Down the road should you choose your fantastic achievement undertaking, would you mind linking to the actual achievement taking place?   There are too many dogstar posts to figure out where he flopped out..

...That or the lurkers are just too lazy  ::(:

Nah, that's cool. 

I totally mean down the road  in the case that you pull something this badass off again.  I don't really expect you to pull one or two hours just to link some images to events.

Trying to point to shit you've partially forgotten is a long and time-consuming process.  Better to nip it in the bud when you first introduce it down the road.

Otherwise people like me can always ask "WUT DID AINTEAR DUE LOL" on finalfight.

Sorry about the lack of participation on my part. My mother had to go back into the hospital a bit over the last month (just got out the latest time on Sunday) so I was busier then hell a lot of the time. Also a little depressed about it so not into doing much more than killing people in tf2 most nights. Sorry about all of that, next year man!

I'm just now realizing that if I had just joined two random events and jerked off, B.R.O.N.T.O would have taken first.

Though on the other hand, having it be that close and us having missed more events than the two leaders, just means we're that much more awesome.

Except that Ryg didn't exactly succeed in part two and that it's not new nor "his," I think you've got the gist of it.

Doom, I had I lot of fun despite my spotty participation due to RL distractions and look forward to next time, especially if you're running it! Let the naysayers go fuck themselves, imo

And if the ogres had bothered to form a nation instead of wanting to save themselves the five seconds effort involved, they'd have beat you as well as us.

So you're equally pathetic.
