  • @JarsonX (Comment 40) :

    Thanks for dying dude, you saved me from what could have been some potential conflict. :wink:

    You were WAYYYYY ahead of the others timestamp wise and I’m not sure if you were aware of the tiebreak steps. I would have hated for you to reach the final round and realise someone with a timestamp way worse than your was ahead of you in the tie break. :oops:

    9. Should the pool stages of the competition be completed and more than one player is still standing then a tie break will be used to decide the winner. As a first step, any player who has lost a lifeline will be eliminated from contention. After that, a time stamp will be assigned to each pick made, recording the elapsed time from the round being opened to the selection being made. The timestamp for the first pick (Round 1) will NOT be counted This elapsed time will be totalled each week and at the end of the tournament the smallest elapsed time will be used as the tie break to determine the winner.

    Obviously if all the players have lost lifelines (are orange) then one of them will be the winner.

  • @lostfish (Comment 44) : I am on 636 seconds. :)

    The order in which they are listed on the left panel of the site is the timestamp order. I am the highest up the list. :cool: Of little use ‘coz I am not allowed to win anyway. :)

  • @KSA Shark © (Comment 45) : you open the rounds don’t you? Sometimes I forget to pick and other times I wait for the teams to be announced. Not the best strategy in a game where time is the main determining factor.

  • @KSA Shark © (Comment 43) : If I was the only player that have lost a lifeline left standing at the end then I wouldve have lost out anyways, but if all the guys have lost their lifelines than I wouldve won because of the better timestamp. Right? :mrgreen: I still last 10 more rounds than last year, at least thats a positive :twisted:

  • @lostfish (Comment 46) : Yes I do. :)

    As a matter of interest over all these rounds I had only managed to gain about 4minutes on Jarson. Talk about dedication, he must have been sitting at the PC hitting refresh every few seconds to see if the round was open. even when the round only opened an hour after the game finished or when the round opened immediately. :)

    Would have been a worthy winner.

  • @lostfish (Comment 51) : I have a pair and can’t wear them, the bridge of my nose is to high so the glasses only come down about 75% of the distance they should, leaving it looking a little ridiculous. I now wear Rudyprojects.

    http://www.rudyprojectusa.com/index_inner_detail.php?group_id=1&cat_id=30&item_id=SN798196MR

    My new pair will be arriving tomorrow. :cool: (with that colour they will ONLY be for riding and running though, NOT general wear :) )
