If these are like the swimming events then I should've received a Gold Medal for my day 1 victory. Just saying
would think the numbers get more extreme today. No taking the foot off the gas though -- that's McCarney Mentality not Russia Mentality. Not how you become superpower.
You're losing to the second smallest country in the world. Some "superpower" you got there.
You like little fly on my ass. Shoo shoo
If you get eliminated from this event you still get to participate in all the future events. Everyone will get to have fun trying to destroy everyone else's dreams starting Thursday.
So we only need to worry about getting eliminated today and tomorrow?
No. This event will continue.
Is this event worth just one medal?
if anyone can tell me what nation my avatar is from I will tell you the number I am going to post.
Update to prior analogy:
This high / low game is like the 200 meter free-style swimming competition. Each day is like 1 heat. We eliminate people each day from the 200 meter free-style (high/ low). The people with the most points after there are 2 or less people remaining get medals.
On Thursday, the 2 mile rowing competition begins. That competition (War, which is not ACTUALLY rowing) will not contain heats and is a one-time event that you have 4 days to complete.
So just like an Olympian who is out of the 200m free-style can still compete in the 2 mile row, if you're eliminated from high / low you can still compete in Thursday's event (War).
I don’t think either of you have the onions to go that high today. I’ll put mine at 970 and see if you both really top that or not.
Papua New Guinea?
A civil war is breaking out in an unspecified West African country. A young boy, Agu, lives in a small village with his parents, older brother, and two younger siblings. Agu's village is located within a "buffer zone" enforced by ECOMOG troops. The village is informed that the government has fallen and military-aligned rebels have seized control of the country. With rebel forces headed towards the village, many people flee to the country's capital for safety. Agu's father buys safe transport for his wife and two youngest children, but has to stay behind with Agu and his eldest son. Rebel and government forces fight in and around Agu's village. While the rebel soldiers flee, government forces round up the remaining villagers and execute them, but Agu evades capture and escapes into the jungle.
After wandering for an unspecified amount of time, Agu is caught up in a guerrilla skirmish. The Native Defense Forces (NDF), a rising rebel faction in the country, adopts Agu into their ranks. Agu's battalion is led by the Commandant, who takes Agu under his wing. Following a brutal initiation process where Agu hacks an innocent captive to death with a machete, Agu becomes a fully-fledged member of the militia. Agu befriends another young NDF child soldier, Strika, who never speaks. One night, the Commandant summons Agu to his quarters and rapes him. Strika, another of the Commandant's rape victims, comforts him. Preacher, an older soldier, gives Agu brown-brown to lift his mood. Agu and Strika take part in a number of bloody battles and ambushes.
The battalion's many bloody victories earn them a summons to the rebel headquarters, where the Commandant, accompanied by Agu, Strika, and a few other soldiers, go to meet with the NDF leader, Dada Goodblood. Goodblood denies the Commandant the promotion he had promised, and removes him from command. The Commandant's lieutenant, Two I-C, will take control of the battalion, and the Commandant will be given a staff position under the rebel leader. The Commandant views this as an insult, and leaves to "celebrate" his lieutenant's promotion at a brothel. While the soldiers (except for Agu and Strika) spend the night with the brothel's women, one of the women fatally shoots Two I-C. The prostitute professes that it was an accident, but the Commandant and his men shoot the women and leave the city with the battalion.
Now on the run from their own faction as well as their enemies, the battalion suffers heavy losses. Airstrikes and supply shortages kill many of them, including Strika. The remaining members of the battalion take shelter at a gold mine for several months, hoping to find gold to pay for supplies. Ammunition runs out, leaving the group with no way to defend themselves from encroaching enemy forces. Agu and the soldiers all abandon the Commandant to surrender, ignoring his warnings that they will merely be thrown in jail. Shortly after, they are detained by UN troops.
The younger members of the battalion are sent to a missionary school in a safe part of the country. Agu stays away from the other children, who play games and enjoy the comfort and safety of the school. Agu is tormented by what has happened, and has nightmares about it. After much time has passed, Agu tells the school's counselor that he has done some terrible things, which he fears will make her see him as a "beast." Instead he tells how he used to be a good boy, from a good family, and that his family had loved him. The final scene shows Agu finally joining the other boys as they swim and play in the ocean.
Are points today based off of how many players remain, or how many players there were at the beginning of the competition?
