Awww. I had hoped to see the finished leaderboards of this months derby. Who won and who got runner up prizes?

Was the reason it not being left up for clutter, because of the debate on who won or just it was never planned to be left up?

It's there. Click the First link at the bottom of the current leaderboard.

I didn't think to check if that actually worked. I'll assume the "first" link actually takes you back.

But they should be preserved in perpetuity. Which is kind of cool.

Cheers!

Oops! Thanks HD. That's embarassing, I know how to drive an interwebs normally. Sigh.

Some pretty darned fast times. Props to everyone who took part. Are the winners the four names at the top? (Sorry if this restarts the argument from page 1, I'm just interested - and will also hopefully take part once RL slows down a bit. Moving house and moving job means that playing games time is seriously shortened!)

Those are the winners, yeah, but lots of people (maybe all?) get prizes. Dresden II got 4 prizes, even though I only "won" one category. They're all equipped on that account if anyone wants to see them in their non-Heirloomed form.

Seconded on the props! And yes, the winners are the top row :)

Everyone who participated should have gotten something.

Whoa, we are going the get an entire set of kitchenware, eventually?

I wonder what exactly is "better the longer it is in the family". Doing heirloom runs with that particular reward?

Also ... "secret reward". Hmm. What could that be for.

I'd like to point out that the account that won in both speed categories, Blackmatter615 does have IOTM sidekicks, but didn't use them. His greatest advantage was the ability to tame. That and a lot of permed skills, even though only class skills could have SP applied in the winning runs.

@xKiv: probably that

Pato, like I said, it's not really the sidekicks that influence the win. It's luck that you need to push that 5 day run into 4 days. I was also a naturalist and tamed to speed up leveling, but bad luck in a few spots hunting for non-coms and items kept me from 4 days. Although having the sidekicks certainly lowers the amount of good luck you need.

I guess I was lucky when it came to rng. I'd like to say mister tea was critical, but in my best time there was no mister tea consumed....also, both BM615 and Feathergod competed and Feathergod showed a consistently poorer performance due to lack of perms, it got beat more often and I had to spend more time resting. That was what separated both my alts since they both had similar luck.

I definitely don't know how to speed run. Haven't even got my merit badge for that yet. Happy to have gotten a sweet 100 damage knife for my efforts though. Don't even think it has a level limit on it either.

Boo. I only got two items.

Shouldn't my winning run have netted me a second participation prize?

Congrats! Enjoy it in good health :)

Congratulations on your win! The participation... well, the message explains it. "Consolation Prize" is probably the more apt term.

Maybe I'm understanding wrong...

I did 2 heirloom runs with the googles this time. One got me the swimsuit (yay!) but the other netted nothing. Shouldn't there have been gum for my second run which was terrible and useless?

You should only get the gum for a side of the derby where you participated, but didn't get any prizes for that side of the derby.

If that makes sense.

Cheers!

Questions on the 'Better the longer they're in the family' modifier:

Does choosing not to do an heirloom run reset the bonus?
Does choosing a different item for heirloom run reset the bonus?

They don't need to be consecutive at all, no. As long as you have those heirloom runs on record, the bonuses should remain the same.

Weld 2 heirloom knives.

That's what I'm shooting to get this month. So someone better do a 21 mettle run in each category to beat my 19 mettle runs!

I actually screwed up and did a dumb mettle run that was no good for speed or mettle!

Gah

Yeah, I always want both to be something that's available that month.

Which is a shame, because some holiday and otherwise really-limited content has the funnest (or maybe funniest) potential runs.

Edit: This is a reading comprehension fail on my part, but left for a) the next couple posts making sense and b) to point and laugh at.

Cheers!

I think you misunderstood what he meant. He meant that he thought the gum itself wouldn't be consumed on use, so you could use it for another run later. I think.

Oh, yeah, I misread "gum" as "gun" and thought he was talking about the taffy puller.

So, I figured he wanted another month with the taffy puller. And who could blame him? Mmmmm taffy.

Thanks for pointing that out.

Cheers!

Well, you just actually followed your own pun. It was a long stretch to decide that me saying 'heirloom gum' actually meant the taffy puller :)

Satan is right though. I had hoped that the heirloom gum would follow the trend of Violet Beauregarde's record breaking piece of gum and keep going and going and going!

I have to admit that I'm actually curious as to how some heirloom gum would get better after bringing it through as a heirloom!

Wouldn't that chewing gum lose its flavor on the bedpost overnight?

Ah, yeah, the heirloom gum is more Dale Cooper than Violet Beauregarde.

But that really was a stretch :lol:
