Re: Croco-Liga team competition, starting in September 2012

Heh, you got it wrong. I didn't mean to be rude and I think it's normal that I'm comparing my results with other UK solvers, especially with Northern UK team solvers as it's like a derby match between us, don't you think? Anyway, I wouldn't mind if anyone would compare their results to mine and of c...

Re: Croco-Liga team competition, starting in September 2012

Look, communication is necessary in that kind of team competition as you have to assign puzzles, discuss who solves what, discuss opponents, last week's results etc. I'd even say communication is essential in this comp! That's why I came up with the idea of alternative method as well but so far only...

Re: Croco-Liga team competition, starting in September 2012

I'm sorry detuned but I didn't spam the Mini-Chat. Instead I've been trying to find a better option for team communication, which hopefully will happen soon. OK, it's probably fair indeed but as it is different in Ü-Rätsel I thought that maybe it would be the same in the League... But never mind, my...

Re: Croco-Liga team competition, starting in September 2012

So, if you start to solve before 23:00 GMT on Sunday and end after 23:00 then the result doesn't count :?:

Re: croco-puzzle

And I got my best ever time in Stations (Bahnhöfe)! It was only enough to beat 20 but as I beat 2 from here and my rating didn't drop it's not bad :)

Re: Croco-Liga team competition, starting in September 2012

Sorry about 2 consecutive posts but no response whatsoever from rodders or afcwarren, and as I posted on Friday already and there is only 1 day left to assign the puzzles I must post again in case my posts haven't been noticed.

So, could you look into it asap?

Re: croco-puzzle

Good news for me is that I have reached 95% solving percentage, which is better than 3 solvers from here! And today I have also solved Stations with my best ever time in it, which is apparently still very poor though -- this puzzle doesn't suit me at all. And what I'm happy about is that the 'Statis...

Re: Croco-Liga team competition, starting in September 2012

Well, last week during the assigning phase we obviously couldn't see, which puzzles opposing team had assigned to their players. But we could see their team members and their ratings of course, which still gives some useful information. Yea, I'm not high in the Killer Sudoku ladder as I haven't solv...

Re: Croco-Liga team competition, starting in September 2012

I'm looking at it from slightly different perspective, which is similar to the 2nd strategy you mentioned detuned. Well, in this case I had 2 puzzles of 12, which I was any good at, so let's say in those I would have had decent chances of winning at least 1. But apparently I was assigned only 1 of t...

Sorry about 2 consecutive posts but I have posted in Mini-Chat already 2 days ago but no one has replied. Apparently sometimes people don't check it and there are no notification pop-ups or anything that tell you someone has posted in the league chat, so the only way to find out is to go there every...

Re: croco-puzzle

No. And yours seems to be fine too as it's 1869. I believe you checked it after 4 o'clock at night (GMT+1) when the ratings were being updated. I have noticed that at 04:00 every day ratings are updated in order of time (starting from the earliest results). So, probably by the time you checked your ...

Re: Any interest in a UK croco-puzzle ladder?

Tnx! I defo enjoyed this puzzle, didn't have many places where I had to stop and think and that's what I always try to avoid in all sudokus as it's a must for a good time ;) And yea, your time's very good too. Well, that would be great but unfortunately it doesn't come up very often. I could get at ...

Wohooo! 61st place in yesterday's Comparison Sudoku was great, my 2nd best result ever (obviously behind Sudoku), my 3rd result in top 100 and well, it wasn't too far from top 50, 20 seconds off :) That means my overall rating jumped up by 16 straight away and Comparison Sudoku rating is my new high...

Re: Croco-Liga team competition, starting in September 2012

Nice one dickoon! Also, if we would have played against your opponents we would have won as well, so yeah, it's early days ;) But good job by Northern UK anyway.

Gotta say Team China played surprisingly well though!
