Just nailed a perfect run for my abilities so I'm going to leave it there.

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

I just had a thought - I see the times as they come in and I feel like having that information is perhaps an unfair advantage as I know where I sit. In the interest of fairness, I think some transparency would be beneficial but in a way that doesn't reveal everyone's placement.

I thought about something along the lines of posting what the mean time is at a specific point in the week.

What do you guys think? Do you have any better ideas?


Up to you - but I don't feel like you're having an unfair advantage at all. Personally I like the not knowing, build up and reveal. We already get a bit of an idea of how people are generally doing from in-thread chat and the evil bastard in me quite likes the idea of someone thinking they've won than someone else (Jezo) smashes their time by 4 seconds.

OK. We'll try the not opening PMs idea.

Hoping for third at best, but probably 4th or 5th is realistic.

I think I'll be lucky to be in the top 5, but also not really sure how many people would be entering. Really looking forward to the results.

Hypes I have exactly the same amount of wins against you as losses to you on our online record, so you are at least as good as me that is how that works.

I am expecting 3rd/4th place today.

I'm assuming results will be 'proof pending'?

Our runner-up:
2nd - Drumstick - 1:06.647

But taking the win in our first week, with an absolutely stonking time was:

Oh my god. It took me so many attempts to get that time. I almost submitted a high 1:12 before I got a bit quicker the other evening and called it quits. You guys are insanely good.

Some very good times in there guys. I think every time submitted was a great effort but Drummy's and Jezo's are very nice.

Not looking forward to Toad Harbour as much but I'll give it my all! Just want to beat the staff ghost on each track I think!
