It's ok, she went in to work after all so I should be ok. Don't forget cutoff is now at 5pm due to daylight savings shenanigans.

Yep had that noted.

Did actually have a look and we'd get knocked out last week with the score we have atm! Yet we seem to be a healthy amount away from elimination.

I've just grabbed a 450TA achievement right now, I'm not going to manually scan it in just in case we look safe but I'll keep an eye on it. Will probably autoscan anyway.

Yeah 45 minutes till bonus deadline 509.....could be a little tight but anything over 100 after 4pm should see us through with ease. Wait and see what happens.

EDIT: NVM it has scanned in automatically.

Jeez the speed that line flys at up now haha

I am going into a meeting at 4, I doubt it will last the hour it is scheduled four but I am afraid if we need saving it could well be on you. I am hoping we will be ok though.

Yeah I think we would probably have needed it anyway. That should keep us safe, although I'll still keep an eye out.

There's still 48 teams to pass us with 25 minutes left. We're fine.

That's Just Mean
End the scoring period with double the ratio earned during the previous period (if you ended with a 1.5, you now need a 3.0)

As it implies, you need to double your TA ratio. That's determined by doing a bit of simple math.

TA Score / GS = ratio

Make sure that this period your ratio is at least double that of last period!


:lol:

strawberry float off!

Just been perusing my potential achievements for actually pulling this off and there's a surprisingly decent amount of them. I might give the old Threes solver another bash, that's definitely going to help if I can knock one of those out. Of course if I carry on getting decay then this is going to be even more difficult. :x

After properly cheesing it last week my roughly 1.0 ratio shouldn’t be too hard to double :lol: . My next achievement has a 6.8 ratio as I polish off the last of Forza 5.

You reckon, :D averaging x7 would be some going, especially without inviting further decay on going down the gears of war route.

A lot of killer instinct for me I think. 3.07 ratio needed

The decay is over! \o/

Should get a boost (lol) from Cars 2 going GWG too as I had that finished years ago. Maybe this could actually happen! :lol:

Urgh, just accidentally unlocked a low ratio achievement in Minecraft. That's gonna screw me. :-(

EDIT - Just over 6 currently.

Right, I'm away now for a few days for an Easter break. Should be back on Tuesday in time for a little more high ratio hunting, hopefully that plus the Cars ratio increase will push me over 7. :-)

Seemed only fair to use the April fools day achievement on sunset overdrive to get me out of a spot of bother :lol:

<banter> seems the competition are struggling with the high bar of a x2 ratio </banter>

Congrats hamm and Mrs hamm, good luck with the big day. I'm sure it's not unreasonable to take a Windows Phone on your honeymoon to keep up with the competition. :-)
