I challenge NukeLord.

You jump on people quick, don't you :)

I have played JESUS and I have lost *grumbles about SA*
I was doing alright a couple of weeks ago, it's all been downhill since AoD finally beat me... :cry:

Oh, come on, it's all about the ranks title, not you or your nick :D Just "Buddha" rank didn't seem OK to the majority of players, and it has nothing to do with you personally :D And everyone perfectly clear remembers who if The Father of The Ladder :D

Well i'll leave it up to you two to decide what happens, you can keep trying to play a game until the active player below you wants to advance or if you want to get moving allow one of you to wint he challenge.

OK ynbniar has come up with this:

Domino's Challenge
The first player to reach the top of the ladder AND pass or equal 75pts is in the final.
The 2 players in 2nd and 3rd in the ladder play off (after any outstanding challenges have been resolved, their points total doesn't matter). The winner enters the final.
The winner of the final wins the game.
If there are any disputes about ladder positions, challenges, points totals or anything else the ladder custodian's decision is final.
Current points totals stand.

The winner recieves an IV game from ynbniar which sounds fantastic. However I kind of think this will not only take several months to happen it also currently looks like only 4 players are in the running. With ynbniar away Im going to say that the terms of this are up for discussion but seeing as he is the prize giver he gets final say.

Interesting...
Sounds good, I don't think I'll be winning any prizes anytime soon though.

Exactly the problem im trying to solve, its there to provide an incentive but i have a feeling this only gives an incentive to the top four (who don't really need it).

Hmm...another good reason to persist at this ladder...75pts may be a bit steep however...40-50 points might be a bit more realistic.

A specific IV game? or one of the winners choice? why do you say only 4 players look to be in the running? 4th and 5th place are constantly shifting :roll: and JESUS and ruslMike made fairly quick progress. 3rd place is undoubtadly the worst position to be in :P

Just to see if I had just become out of my league, and because my resits are over and the only things for me to do between now and term starting are going home (that'll kill a whole tomorrow) and comtemplate upon my navel, I reckon I may as well say:

Please let me back in, please, PLEASE!
