Awarded retroactively, that's good. I cannot attempt the other one, so someone else will have to see if it works. :P

Are we going to get different epics tomorrow? I don't know if I'll get any of mine today (but I guess that's why they are EPIC wink )

I'd like to try them again smile The second one was kind of tough to do after since they were added later today, so another chance at it will be good. They look great so far!

I like how they look! What are the 8 colored flags going to be? Looks like orange, blue, and black so far...

Great looking! So, if we complete them in testing, do we get 'em? Or wait till it is open to all and sundry?

This is awesome, Terry! Imagine the suspense we are putting the other players through. ;-). We're close to having this thing done, I can taste it. smile

I think it would be a little unfair for us to keep them from testing. Since we don't have to purchase them and we get multiple chances...at least for the ones we got today.

I won't be getting them either. Looks like Wes and Salami are though!! I fully intend on getting the "Scoring" one tomorrow, if we're replaying them. I doubt I'll get the other one though, considering how my performance today went (and the one I got credit for was at 3am)...

On the bright side, it appears that I will be completing my Difficult challenge at the end of the day today as I'm currently ranked 1st in my GC "For Children" set laugh

Same here! Even used my Change a category Expert, promptly forgot and slept through it, and then after placing second in one category, used my precious Mulligan and dropped even lower! :-P

But on the bright side, I got my Daily Game one, and the epics are actually the most fun ones.

That's really the only fair way to do it, Terry. But knowing that I can complete them certainly will make me feel better when I actually get them in the game!

I changed the Future to "Greek Myth" which I've tried for several times without success. I almost slept through it, as it didn't appear until 3am, but I managed to stay awake and I ended up beating 60 people to earn my 13th Expert win smile

I've only used my Mulligan once, I keep forgetting about it. It actually moved me up 2 spots the one time I DID use it, which allowed me to win a daily challenge weeks ago (comment's on one of the earlier pages in this thread I believe).

Not even close on my Medium Challenge today. It's a bit difficult, considering I've only ever played the "Easier" game. Oh well, it was worth a shot I guess. No cigar this time.

Did the "Scorer" requirement change sometime today, or am I seeing things? I could have sworn it looked harder the first time I saw it today...

Yeah, made it a little more accessible, considering that people will likely get it in the middle of the day sometime on average.

Cool. Good to know I'm not going insane wink With the new set up it corresponds to something else too, whereas it really didn't before, so that's a plus too I think.


P.S. Being vague for the sake of "secrecy" from the general public, and still having stuff make sense to the testers who are "in-the-know" is really hard.

Quite! That's why I said what I did and finished the rest in PM...:-P

Edit: Speaking of which, that link there in the first post in this thread, can anyone go to it? Because the epics are shown from that link...

I actually tested that the first week! (I logged out of my account and, as a Guest, I attempted to access the page, just because I was curious what would happen smile )

And the answer is no, clicking the link without being a tester just sends you to an error page.

If this means the middle of the FT day, then all those over here will be at a serious disadvantage because by that time we'll be making/eating dinner and there'll only be a couple of hours left before bedtime. (At least for 'normal' people who go to work/school.)

Flopsy, essentially it's your playing day, whichever way you're structuring it around the FT day. You'll get the challenge after some (more or less) activity on the site as you at least needed to do some others first and thus you will be less prepared than if you were doing an Endurance run where you plan it out first thing in the morning.

Hmm. Well, assuming I've understood you correctly, if you're monitoring my activity on the site I have a problem - because I don't play most team games, or much else, until late evening here. So if I have to do those first, I'm never going to see the Epics until it's too late to complete them. And that would also apply to people who go out to work and do their main FT stint after dinner.

If I have a challenge that involves my getting to X position Y number of times then I need a fairly long period in which to achieve that because of the random way game topics are served up. If Y=2 then I might need more than 8 hours to get it, even with luck and a following wind. But if I only have 3 hours because of when the challenge is issued, I wouldn't have a hope.
