Ok, gonna have a double post here...but that's because the two topics have nothing to do with each other and I was replying to Hacksword on the previous one. So here goes:
Great job in October, MISFITS! Best month, points wise, that we've ever had and a big jump up to 2nd place. We still finished 442.7k pnts behind PPD Police..BUT with a couple of timing issues we could have been a LOT closer. I lost several hours on my last 6904...or I would have put up 380k pnts on teh 31st. Instead, I got 355k pnts on the 1st. That would have put us only 62.7k pnts behind at the bell. NLM gets a bigadv instead of smp units and we would have been right there. Here are how we did individually by Category and amount you were back of the 1st place folder:
sstnt, 2nd place, -437k back of 1st
Amang, 4th place, -57.5k
CHUNKYBOWSER, 2nd place, -256k
blazed_1, 1st place (Way to GO!), +16k
NLM, 7th place, -562k
adcantu, 7th place, -64k
So there's your target, MISFITS!
For November, we're starting out pretty well, just back of The PPD Police. After that 6904, I've gotten a couple of bigadvs now (there's a shortage of hugeadvs), so we might fall back if someone's lucky enough to get and finish a 6903 or 6904. As of 4 hours ago, we were 90.45k back, but I have that bigadv finishing up for 76k pnts this evening, and I know NLM has a bigadv finishing up late today or early tomorrow. We just have to fold as hard as we can, and let the chips fall where they may.
Try to get the max you can out of your equipment...but STABILITY and CONSISTENCY is key. WUs lost due to problems with a new OC you put in don't help. But obviously, if we don't do anything to improve, we'd have to count on other teams to screw up in order to win. So let's push it...but intelligently and incrementally. Fold on, MISFITS!
