15) Ray (either) Born on March 15)

If we lose the ray & can't get another today we can't complete the competion D:


Oh no!! Okay honestly I was hoping this would be super easy and it would never come to losing the critters :lol: Okay that is definitely not going to happen, I totally forgot there was a date on that Ray :headdesk: That’s a lot of critters to lose as well, it’s my sleepy brain wanting a unique advantage.

I’m changing it now to ONLY FISH. Thanks for pointing that out, that’s a good catch!

I am going to try for the advantage when possible, but honestly, I do not like to be advantaged because someone else gets a disadavantage, especially because of different time zones and RL schedules, some people may get knocked out due to the advantage to someone else and that I think is very unfair.

Okay thank you for the honest opinion :t-hugs: I was making it so everyone either wins or loses here and everyone gets a chance at the advantage but I totally get what your saying! (Ik I shouldn’t have set the timer). This was a bust so I will just remove this one and try a normal advantage with some heads up tomorrow. Just in case someone has seen it already. Any of the 3 critters posted will still count towards being able to skip the gender preference. I’ll just remove everything else.

Thanks!

Oh wow, that was quick :crazy: :lol: I knew it would be(well not that fast) especially when everyone could do 1 critter. Okay so you can trade them in so, for example, instead of maybe needing to get 2 female snakes you use the advantages you get on them and it wont matter.

Make its a little easier for some :t-shrug:

I think that twist just made things complicated, but next round it's going to go back to maybe just 50 critters. 70 is pushing it I think.

70 is okay.
Next time maybe, we can make it so we cannot buy any creatures from anywhere - other players, waynal, mercado, the shops etc. That way everyone has a similar chance.
I am familiar with the market place so that gives me an advantage of the workings there.
Someone else may have some very good friends, who would give up their egg slots for them.
Such things disadvantage a player who may not be very socially active on the forum. Just my 2 cents worth.

First of all thank you for answering all of my questions. Don't worry about your answering speed. I asked them right before going to sleep, and didn't expect an early answer. You are doing absolutely great with your answering speed! :hooray: Your health always goes before this contest! Also other rl things for that matter.

I will probably use the advantage fully, but I think it would be fine, to get an advantage and not be able to use it, because you have already done quite few creatures. It's just a risk you take. I don't know. A store would add an incentive to do all creatures regardless of advantages. But maybe others see this differently, I wouldn't mind having that store either.

Sorry I am the type of person if you give me rules I try and figure out all exceptions and weird cases. (Yes, I annoy everyone explaining a board game by asking way to detailed questions. -^-^- Also those board game rulebooks are just not specific enough sometimes. )
You are not messing up my plans at all I just wanted to clear up any possibility I could think of before doing something I would regret. With some of my questions I just wanted to make sure I am not misunderstanding things, since language can be tricky sometimes.

About today's Advantage: Honestly I woke up was trying to write this answer and started catching things also. I don't have a fully formed opinion of that advantage. I did catch one creature for it and spent all the hatching time writing this. :sweat:

Because You were wondering about everyones timezone. I am in CET, which means 5h ahead of MS time. I usually sleep from 7pm MS time to 2-3am, otherwise I am currently on break between semesters so no work. If I know a head of time when to expect something I can stay up a bit longer or wake up earlier. As long as it's not 9-11pm I am fine. Even if, I already got an advantage when others probably didn't have time to spare. It's just hard to make fit everyones timezone and in the end my odd timezone, might have to make way for the majority. Edit: I was trying to say don't worry to much about it. I might be sleeping other might have to go to work or have to do something that exact time.

For the record I'm in Central time in Alabama.. one hour behind MS.
While I generally don't go to bed before midnite my time, I don't always check MS that late. So if I miss something, it's my fault, not yours. It's hard to accomodate everyone, so you just have to do the best you can and make sure folk know when you'll be annoucing something.

As for the comp itself, I'm having a blast. I LOVE the date and 1% restrictions, even tho I've missed a few of the percents and I'm having to try again.. but it's still FUN. Different schdules, different timezones, different skills.. it's the restrictions that keep it fair and interesting.

Truthfully tho, even tho I won the 1st round due to an advantage.. I'd just as soon do without them.

Edit to add: I didn't think we were supposed to buy things from others anyway.. the only thing I've purchased is BBKat's Twitter service.. because I don't use Twitter myself. I've personally caught every critter that I'm using for the competition.. so if someone has been buying things, I don't think that's fair to start with.. it's a CATCHING comp after all.

Last round I had a LTB in Kancha for the forest creatures. Which was how, I was able to complete in one day. This time this is not a race for the fastest, so gendering stuff was fun...(some critters really made me try over and over again) You can see the tab holding bay in my keep. :sweat:

This time I am using only sitting services of multiple sitters. BBBKat, HiddenMystic, Ayakashi. Whichever one of them is online. I recommend all of them, they are really good.
