Wednesday Online Derby Report

Unofficial Hosting by madmax began at 9pm and drivers started to arrive immediately. Tonight was an unsheduled night and I couldn't find any other derbies on, so lets get bangin

Showstopper was the first player to punt me out of the derby and get me hooked on a log. If that wasn't bad enough, it happened 2 more times where I got hooked or timed out before or just getting back into the derby. Wins were taken by Lucky13, Pipesrmylife, SHowstopper and 572BB.
It was a short night of hosting before handing the duties over to Pipesrmylife.

Then I went back to testing so connection speeds with 572BB. A strong connection of 572bb held long enough for us to bang out to the end without ghosting. I thought I had him beat, out drove him, out foxed him and that he sucked really bad. Ok, so thats not really true, but it was a great duel to the end with me ultimately losing.... Possibly the best derby I have had with 572BB and the connection made the difference. Will have to see how that holds up with other players as that is the ultimate goal.

Another great night of derbies

Thursday Night Derby Report
Derbies hosted 5pm to 10pm

Clinton fixed his technical problems after a short absence and returned with a bang. Surprising us in heat #1 with a modded preran 76 MonteCarlo that is superior to the stock derby cars. Showstopper took turns bashing on all players while madmax maintained pressure on the Monte only. This superior tactic known in my circles as "Running away" and derby circles as "Sandbagging" bought enough time for Showstopper to wreck and for fate to knock a hole in the rad of the Monte as smoke started to blow. Doing as little as possible, madmax let the temp gauge control the event, and with both cars smoking and madmax car dead red, the Monted stopped running. GLORIOUS VICTORY IS MINE!!!

It wasn't until I reviewed the results of the evening that I realized there isn't anything else people are interested in beyond knowing the winner of the 1st heat. But for fair and balanced reporting...here is the rest of the details.

Clinton banged off a win in the 2nd heat and 4th heat then spent the next 3 derbies as a bridesmaid. Took a break and came back on a terror with a string of successive wins to end the night including leading the way on the team derbies...

Team derbies... Yes, American Wagon vs Canadian Wagon and rumour has it that if the Canadian on the Canadian team was replaced by another "Guest" Canadian, say American, They may have had a shot. I am not pointing fingers... but I did see alot of finger tips... but I am not sure about that. Its hard to help your partner in a team derby when you hit him, so, I figured being knocked out early was actually a benefit for my partner. In hindsight, watching two players attack one, isn't really the advantage I thought I was giving my partner. Of course, my 2nd attempt at a team derby wasn't much better and as my partner TLM000 said after the 2nd loss. There goes the idea of best two out of three....

En4cer had a strong night, with 3 heat wins and an F8 win.

TLM000 usually builds up wins during the evening, but this was not his night although he picked up a wins in the 6th & 10th heat. THus not going home empty handed.

Heat #13 was 5 player battle and madmax was doing brilliant. All Green in the front, All red in the back, and just Showstopper and Clinton left and they were both smoking and double reds. Swinging around to make a turn and driving full frontal to finish them off one by one, I saw both charging me side by each. Nowhere to go and not really worried, the hit was so hard the car was backed into the wall. But the rear didn't collapse. The front went from GREEN to ZERO, which I had never seen before. No yellow, no red, just dead. Its over for me. Showstoppers car stalled in the hit, never restarted and Clinton hammered him into the wall taking another win before his temp gauge maxxed.


F8 Derbies.... Well, these are short and fun. ANd I just discovered that there are some excellent drivers who can score wins on these kinds of events. The F8s were anyones to win, except madmax, although I was inadvertantly a spoiler to many of the 2nd place cars... who I would unintentionally hit, thus messing up that final last lap challenge on a few occassions.

I think I will start broadening the schedule to have an F8 race every 8 heats and if people like the team derbies we will do one or two a night.

I haven't been able to host 6 players since the Derby King Tournament. My cut off appears to be 5 players max.

On the last heat I hosted, PipesRmylife and 572BB appeared, but were unable to get in one heat, as we all failed to finish, the cars lined up (that was a success) moved (that was a success) but it seems few could hit one another and they just ran through. We were all ghost cars and got counted out.


I am working out some alternatives, thanks to some earlier help I received from SBB 09.

All in all another great night of online derbying....

And the first person to knock me out of the bullpen was Showstopper.

Thanks to everyone who played and all those wonderful comments you provided after my that first heat win. I had to refer to it many times during the night. Thanks for asking and reminding me.

Erm... ok.. maybe that was me bringing up that first heat win.

JK. By now, I am sure you know most of my posts are tongue and cheek.

Blast playing with everyone, I'll see if I can host from 5pm to 7pm. Then I am off for a weekend of Real Derbies.
