I'd still rather get the points on the board and then let the line come to us. If we score too much then it'll be a shame that we don't get the bonus, but at least we won't be in a mad last minute scramble for points.

This strawberry floating coop bucket list horizon trophy can get in the bin :lol:

Must have organised umpteen different sessions since last summer, one son wouldn't sleep and my partner and reserve got it instead, one I had to cancel as I got ill on the night, one where no one joined, one where a guy didn't show up, and tonight finally get into the game and the bloke literally has no clue what he is doing and have to sack it after 20 mins :lol: :fp:

One day I guess.

Hard to judge this, I think, roughly, we need to be where we are now at the end of Tuesday night. Assuming your available on weds during the day in case we start to drop like a stone.

We gave it some thought and decided that we’d rather not risk it and just get the points on the board as neither of us are able to play on Wednesday to engineer the finish. Lots of teams trying to do the same thing means that scores might shift quickly and you could end up using a bonus to stay in instead of earning a new one. I think the nargins are just a bit fine.

I should be around, yeah. Worst comes to the worst I have some phone games I can score points on pretty quickly if I can't get on the Xbox.

Some nice scoring there hamm. Might pick up that Kutkh game myself.

I’d say it’s a bit of a stretch to call it a game. More like an interactive screen saver. At least it wasn’t my money :lol:

Yeah I needed one more Goat Simulator DLC which I've now picked up. Don't worry about the situation by the way, I know I have work to do but I'm getting on it tomorrow, promise. :-)

:lol:

Put a few more tonight to try and get to what I roughly think will leave you enough breathing room to get yourself self safe individually, keep me safe individually, and leave us in the bottom 25%....gonna be an interesting day tomorrow :lol: I can pop some tomorrow if needed I'll keep an eye on it. I'd rather not as remote achievements are gold dust.

Interesting bonus I have to admit.

OK, so I've put in another 1000TA this morning (god bless Minecraft and its title updates) so that should keep me safe and us in a position where we will end up in the bottom 25%. Will keep my eye on it this afternoon but as long as I haven't overdone it we'll be OK.

EDIT - Yeah I may have put a bit too much in. :lol:

I hope it works out for you guys. It seems that there's quite a lot of teams with a similar approach looking at how slowly the elimination line has crept up this week that makes me think it's going to end in tears for a lot of teams this afternoon.

Yeah I'd of dropped it about 300 short of that then kept on eye on it if I were you (assuming you're free till 4) But we will see could be a stroke of genius. :lol:

HS you are correct but as we are both free to score a fair amount of points today we have an advantage and there should be no reason why we couldn't of pulled it off if we'd of stayed near the 70 - 80 above drop zone till 3pm when people can no longer use bonus's
