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 least as good result in normal Sudoku too though and possibly a decent time in Killer Sudoku if everything clicks... In others I might get decent results sometimes but in many puzzles I'm still struggling and a couple like Slalom for example just don't seem to be for me. Last week solved my first ever Rundweg/Fences (it wasn't easy), so now there is only 1 puzzle that I'm yet to solve.
Yea, this match is gonna be exciting!
EDIT after solving Thursday 10th's puzzles:
Solved my first ever Number Pyramid!!!
And though I am disappointed with the mistake, I'm otherwise happy with the time and result, took some risks but I'd say it's normal that it didn't pay off first time, moreover I'd say I must have felt confident at it that I took a risk, so I think I actually quite like this puzzle!
Also, Thermometer time 1:30 seems like good but apparently it's actually mediocre...
EDIT 2: Update after Sunday, 14th. Wow, 2 sudokus in 2 days, that's amazing, I wish it would happen more often!
I didn't solve very well this time, both were just OK, good enough to be in top 200 (and 9th, 8th Kyu respectively) but nowhere near top 100. Second one was tougher but went slightly better I think. In the first one even apollo1001
was better than me (well done btw, decent time there) and I spent a couple of minutes not finding anything as I hadn't filled in (and noticed) a 2, a bit of a blind moment
But still my overall rating went up by 17 pts only thanks to those 2 and my sudoku rating is now 814 (only Comparison Sudoku one is slightly higher), I'm back in overall sudoku top 500 and I've even overtaken dickoon
EDIT 3: Update after Tuesday, 30th. Got an OK result in today's Camp and beat 3 solvers from here including apollo (by closest possible margin i.e. 1 second)!!
That means my overall rating improved by 8 or 9 pts and Camp rating passed 500 pts and is my 5th rating over 500!
