ExedExes has been eerily quite this tourney. Does he make a huge run at the last day? We'll find out.
I may have been quiet, but my team sure wasn't. I got all my good stuff in the first week of the competition, then real life kinda sorta got in the way (as well as the Yie-Ar Kung Fu high score contest @ GameEx) and the time I did have to play, I couldn't improve all that well. My favorite games had to be Gaplus and New Rally-X, games I play on a regular basis. While I can max out the bonus stages in Gaplus (and did three times in my submission, although that is NOT my PB), I was really surprised that I couldn't break 200k in NRX.
The very first pick in the Yolympics made #1 overall. Martin did not disappoint. TRB, Sawys, Blackflag82 and Bestcellar were the grinders that got us out of the proverbial basement that we were stuck in for a while and while I'm happy with third, 2nd would have been nicer, and that's why I had to try in the waning hours of the tournament.
Unlike last year, all the games were not a good fit for me, but I was satisfied at least to do better on Twin Cobra hours before this ended. As great of a month as it has been, I'm ready to move on.
Thank you xelnia and my captain brethren for this year's event. You all did your homework in drafting, that I agree, but I'm still glad I was able to get Giro-X!
See you next year!
