I have had a lot of things happen in the family over the last 4 days. I will try and get the winners picked by sometime Sunday evening. I have to go out of town again on Sunday and Monday for a funeral. Once I get them posted. Winners will have 10 days to get with Crash to collect their prizes. I will be once again handing everything over to him. Each winner from each score will be getting an Ult set. Due to ties, only the ones who got the score exact get an Ult set. The others get other nice prizes.






In May I will have been playing DD on one platform or another for three years. It has been a long journey through the lands of Etheria. I can still remember the first time I managed to beat that damn dragon on Summit back on my tablet. I spent hours trying to perfect my build so it would hold up long enough to manage to kill him with my trusty apprentice. I never could manage to beat no towers allowed though. I just couldn't fire my staff fast enough. LOL. The load screen directed me here, I never did feel the need to make an account. I pre-ordered 2 copies of DD when they announced it was coming to PC and Console. One was from gamersgate and the other was from direct2drive(?). I wanted the little demon (Mephisto) for my woman, and I wanted the eagle (hawk) for myself of course. When the game launched I couldn't stand the controls and went to PS3 instead.

I had never been a PC gamer, so I didn't know at the time I could just plug an xbox controller in. I always was a noob. When the events started, Star and Annaq kept telling me I needed to sign up for them. However, I didn't have the time. I worked 60 hours a week and went to school full-time. I couldn't afford to sit there and wait all evening for an event invitation to come across. I would build a survival and let it run while I worked on homework. The wave time was about perfect. I could always use the break after 20 or 30 minutes. Yes, for those of you who have never been blesses with playing on console, that is how long it takes PER WAVE. Once you get above wave 15, the monsters are well into the 1000's, if I remember correctly, magus quarters wave 19 is like 12k. I never did manage to earn a giraffe there. The ps3 system couldn't handle all the monsters and would eventually freeze about wave 23. 8 hours straight it would just give up.

As my Academic career began to come to end, I quit lurking and signed up on the forums. My first event was Ogre Bowling. I can't remember the exact title. Old age brings with it a foggy memory. In a way it is fitting, for I am leaving DD with a bowling contest. It was a blast. The challenge was to beat Ogre Crush using nothing but a few bowling ball towers and the squires fist weapon. I graduated in May of 2012. With my new found freedom I had more time to peruse this dreaded time sink called a forum (LOL). Low and behold, what do I learn. That DD can be played on PC with a controller.

That revelation shuffled in a new era for me on DD. I quickly made the switch to PC. The first day should have cued me to luck with RNG. I bought the entire game, and all of the DLC on some crazy platform called steam I had never heard of before, much to my dismay, the very next day some thing called a summer sale came out and I could have gotten it for 75% off. Oh well, that is how it always goes for me.


Summoner, EV, Ranger, the list goes on and on. I was like a kid on Christmas morn every day when I got home and turned on my PC. Build, and grind, always looking for that elusive better piece of armor. I was playing 80 hours a week and not getting anywhere with improvements. One day in late October I didn't have the time to run a survival but I needed my DD fix. So I loaded up and hit the shop button. Suddenly my calling was found. I started buying armor in random shops and then flipping it on the forums. I could buy the 4 pieces for 4 bill. Throw in a couple random accs, weapon, and a pet and sell on the forum for at least a cube. My days of survival were no more. I became a farmer of shops and working the forum and my shop. I once had a friend tell me I could sell salt water to a sailor.

I have met a lot of people along this wonderful journey. As with anything, at some point everything must come to an end at some point. My end realistically arrived last Summer. I have drawn it out hoping the fire would relight. Sadly, it just isn't there anymore.

Though most won't see this, I'd like to thank some friends for being coming along on this journey with me. However, at one point or another we stood Shield to Staff in service to our beloved Etheria. These are in no particular order, I love you all the same. I am sure there will be someone I will forget, please don't feel offended when I do. As I mentioned earlier, us old men get a little fuzzy upstairs lol.

Hewbert, Nasti, Shadow, Pro, What - Up, Rumor, Person, Rizzo, Crash, YG, Keen, Mischief, DanielSound, Ninja, Hamsteri, Killing, Go, Bear, Bare, Arti, Acen, Greymere, Knows, Boo "), Beer, Draemn, EC, Elmo, Mkjo, Uber, Johnno, Ghost( I caught ya ")

For those of you who are still reading this, I apologize. I didn't set out to write an Eulogy. So without further ado, let me explain the contest.
On February 1st and 2nd is when my team is bowling in the Ohio Eagle's State bowling tournament. That Saturday is the team event. On Sunday we bowl the singles and doubles events. That is a total of 9 games for the weekend. Entries for this contest will run until 12 pm est on Saturday, February 1st. You may not make any edits after this date either. If you choose, you may edit posts made after you see how I bowled on the 25th. All entries need to be in the format that I am giving you. You get 5 guesses per game. The 3 games then make up the series. Your 3 game guesses must add up to the series guess for each.

I just checked this morning, my current average is a 161. Last week when I bowled, I bowled a 210, 200, and a 147 for a 557 series.

This is the format.
Guess 1 for Team
Game 1 - 100
Game 2 - 101
Game 3 - 102
Series - 303

Guess 2 for Team
Game 1 - 103
Game 2 - 104
Game 3 - 105
Series - 312

Guess 3 for Team
Game 1 - 106
Game 2 - 107
Game 3 - 108
Series - 321

Etc. Etc. Then do this for singles, and then for doubles.

I want them in this format for ease of entering into my spreadsheet. I am going to develop a sheet for checking numbers. I will pay out the closest pick to each game and I will pay out the top 3 closest on series. If there are ties, then I will pay all winners. The Prizes will range from Armor sets to cube blocks. I will do my best to make all the game prizes relatively equal in value and the 3 series prizes relatively equal in value.

Good luck - Winners will have until February 15th at 6 pm est to collect their winnings. At that time, I will be uninstalling DD. Any unclaimed prizes will be donated to my PA (Crash). Who I will be employing to help distribute prizes for both of these contests. He is available much more than I am.

Goodbye Eagle. I think the forums will be a poorer place without you.

I am going to pretend the state bowling competition is named after your dd forum name.

My guess will follow when I am not wrestling with 4 kids under 9. I am strangely finding it hard to concentrate just now! :)

Being from the UK bowling and its scoring is a mystery, other than we'll sometimes get a spare and pretend that we had full control over it...

Thanks for your time and effort, DD from the start has indeed been a magical journey (PS3 survival crashes excluded). When I do have sound on, the tavern music really invokes something in me :D

Maybe its all been a dream since TrendyEnt has second wave as their latest release...

Fare well.

I didn't get a mention? Wonder why =(


I once considered you to be a good friend Classic. I don't know what I did to destroy that, however, may the RNG Gods always smile down upon you. Once you and the new wifey start your family, I hope they grow to be healthy wealthy and wise.

Bearr, I look for you now and then. Yes, we need to chat again sometime.

So sad when I read this. It is hard to see veterans move on, especially those that have contributed as much as you have that continue to make this game fun. You and the event team have done a great job of putting the events on giving people more reasons to enjoy this game. It is always fun to see what the event items might turn out to be as well.

Good luck. I will try to help fill the gap you are leaving for a little while at least. This game still has me for a little bit longer for sure.

I will post my entry at some point.

Reading that filled me with a mixture of sadness and happiness. Sadness to see you go but happiness because I know that you're doing what's best for you.

You have done so much for the DD1 community and I don't think I can accurately express what a pleasure it was to have you on here. You have made so many people happy with your events and with your help.

Good luck to everyone doing the contest! I don't know much about bowling except that it's a lot of fun to play, I throw a heavy ball down a lane, and hope all the pins fall. Then a computer tells me how I did.

...I should really go out bowling more.

Hi

You know your own mind best but, on the assumption that there will still be some events between now and DD2, I hope you may hang around to participate in some of them as a regular punter again.

Liked the Floyd link too :squire:
