Slingshot Racing 1st Season

Sat Mar 26, 2016 7:09 pm

opening this thread to transfer the Slingshot League to the new forum.

the League runs like a charm. we are half through the 10 races season.
@Snotty128 in the lead
me, hardco and Holsten_Knight trying our best to catch him.

according to interest, the last placed or two last placed players will be eliminated so that new players can join for the next season.
of course eliminated players can join the queue again for later seasons.

Managed to sort my game centre problem. Had to go into airplane mode then log out of game centre. What a mess this ios 9.3 rollout has been !

oh yes, for gamers.
in the comments users report that the 9.3 update triggered the GC bug or even made it come back.

The fight between 3rd and 4th was the real nail biter! Also the score flatters me unduly. Jammatals times often differed from mine by mere milliseconds.

Snotty128 : 26
Jammatal : 19
Holsten knight : 8
Hard_co : 7

Clean racing lines were the order of the day here. In a lot of the early races one mistake was the difference between 1st and 4th
youre up in slingshot racing. You still game?
How do we poke @doublebullout ? I wonder if fake quoting him works.

I think it has to be (can only be) knowingly done using a Private Message.

I feel like I got progressively worse as the season went on. Or else everyone else got better! Good luck doublebullout!

I started bad, and got worse every race. Until the one race I somehow won (I have my bright moments in slingshot, but not often :roll: ). Hardco had the fastest lap in a lot of races, but also the meanest crashes. I think he has way more potential than me, I am just happy I reached another round. :D

Hey, guys! Yes, quoting worked. I got a notification.

seems we get no notification when a match has ended.
Holsten had to alarm me.

so @Snotty128 is officially acclaimed as 1st PT Slingshot Champion!

result again:
Snotty 26
Jamma 19
Holsten 8
hardco 7

and a very well deserved victory it was. Snotty's great strength is his consistency. nearly no mistakes. flawless performances.
i guess it will be always a tough job to beat him.
congratulations!

and yes, hardco raced to some best laps. much potential. just inject a good portion of Snotty's constancy and it will add up to real slingshot power.

it was a pleasure to play in this league. such a great game.

oh, my private report: i slingered through the season like my sled in tight bends. sometimes really good, sometimes not so. but too many critical bumps and jumps (after bumps. worst of all).
just take a look at my blue Gorilla and you'll notice his sceptical look at my kind of performance.
