Apparently this is the bonus, although I haven't had a PM to confirm yet.

Raise the Bar - worth 1,000 TA
End the scoring period having unlocked at least 5,000TA


Gonna need almost that to survive anyway soon. :lol:

I’d say quite possibly this week if that’s the challenge

Just to let you know I should be at home Monday and by the looks of it will more than likely have to be annual leave so might have some time to KI in the afternoon.....just sold our house and having some electrical work done so while this week should be fine could be hitting hard times in the coming 5 weeks... to be fair when you said we should be able to hang round for a few weeks before the scoring gets too heavy still being around 5 and a half months later was not expected :lol:

Mondays I have my daughter all day, but I can try to swing a bit of time somewhere I'm sure. Don't worry if you start to struggle a bit, I'm happy to pick up some of the slack. Plus we have like a million bonuses to fall back on if things go awry.

We didn’t get the bonus :( . Admittedly, I spent no time researching the criteria but as we spent most of the week playing walking simulators, had assumed it would probably just happen...

Really liked elements of Dear Esther, the music and art design in particular were really impressive for what was (to me) a £2 game. Like the idea of a director’s commentary too. So rare in games and tied to an achievement so obviously had to listen

Gutted for you dude. :(

I really liked Dear Esther too, a really welcome change of pace from modern gaming. I can see why some people didn't care for it, but I enjoyed it very much. Gone Home was a piece of gooseberry fool though.

So how do you dl these Cheevo worlds then? Do you do it in game or externally and save them to a directory.

It's alright, I wasn't too invested in it. That said, the 4,000 points a week that we need now is around my comfortable limit for a week and i think we'll be needing those bonuses fairly soon. Being realistic, it's difficult to see Prestige Worldwide going beyond June in the contest with the way the increases are going :lol:

Just finished Gone Home. Totally agree with you, pretentious garbage.

GrCade and Prestige Worldwide rubbing shoulders in 67th and 68th places. Hoping to secure enough points for survival today.

Are you on phone or Win10? If it's the windows 10 version I just saved the file to my desktop and then opened Minecraft using it, the level started importing straight away. The instructions are on the TA walkthrough.

I need to get my finger out a bit, been keeping busy with Hyper Sentinel (aka that game that someone of GRcade made). Was trying to be the first to get a 1K on it, although that may cause me an incredible amount of decay. :lol:

Yeah I’m starting to look around and scratch my head every week, still coping at the moment but hard to see how we are going to keep up for too much longer albeit we have enough in the bonus bank to do nothing for 2 weeks and still survive. a top 100 finish would be great.

What’s the best result you guys have managed?

We finished 47th in 2015, I think that's our best effort. It does get tricky towards the end.

I can bet :lol:

Scrap the KI as it turns out we have the electricians in today so expecting the power to be out all afternoon. The only thing I can think to do with my half day is to go down the pub sit in a beer garden and watch the Italian Masters in the sun......sounds awful.

Hopefully get Minecraft loaded up tonight, that with #Idarb boosting session I got planned for later and the last few points on North should secure the 5k, so if you want to take a load off and score heavier next week and I can take it a bit easier next week just get yourself safe individually, that said that's going to be at least 3200-3500 way things are going.

I may just do that, although I have the whole of tomorrow to get some points on the board, I'll see how it goes. :-)

So yeah, I decided to do Hyper Sentinel, although I failed to be the first to get it done sadly. Have a couple more achievements to get but they will only take five minutes. Might wait until after cutoff to drop them, might save me a bit of decay.

I could easily get that bonus by dropping those last two achievements but I don't think it's worth the decay. More interested in the team competition anyway obvs.
