Re: Extra Credit Comp! Round 3!

I was too chicken to go with my 9p non-champ last round and I just submitted a bit of a rush job for r3. Not too confident.

Thanks for hosting.

Are you allowed to tell us whether it would be advisable to use a piece reduction or not? I have an x piece solution and an x+1 piece clean, and I can't decide which to go for.

I find the decisions as much fun as the levels. In retrospect, it would appear that I used my two piece reductions needlessly in the last round, but that's only because compscure gambled and didn't use his. Really looking forward to everyone's decisions in r4.

Hmmm. So if patacoman, CJ, Irceus and I all buy immunity Zedifo is definitely out, but will 4 move on then? Seems like this is a wasted level. Even though I have a great solve, if the other three that can buy immunity do, then I'm out. Why would I or the other three bother solving the level just to be eliminated?

Why don't we all agree to not buy Immunity then?

Seems like the points are best spent next round anyway, because to win, you'll need lots of points for some extreme piece reduction.

JHawk put together a unique, fun comp. He didn't manipulate things for us to end up in this position. Yeah, Zedifo is in poor position, but he had a good run, and he used his immunity last round to get to here. Cruiser may have skewed our decision just a bit in letting us know that he had a great solve. I say we play on - everyone for himself.

Skewed because I stated that I had a great solve? How can that be giving 'you' any information that you shouldn't have already known? :wink:

All I have to say is that I wish I had told you about the final round procedure earlier. (I was kinda figuring it out as I went along)

Irceus could have really taken a lead if he hadn't played immunity last round, and cj would be crushing if he hadn't used the piece reduction.

I guess I like how it turned out because it doesn't mean all pro finals like most comps.

Tomorrow's deadline will be about 5pm CST. The finals will have four if needed. If there is a tie in the finals another tiebreaker level would be used.
