Re: Unsolicited Bragging

Update: The Club Championship was this past weekend. My rating going in was 1408 and that put me in the middle tournament section (Reserve 1400-1799). I was the third lowest rated person in my section which meant that any win or draw was likely an upset. Rating is an estimator of strength and there ...

Star Wars Rise of Skywalker Thread

So that was a Star Wars movie. It had some good things, some bad things, some interesting things. It was at times too much movie, and others not enough. Some stuff just didn't make sense to me. I didn't like some of the cinematography choices because it broke with some of the aesthetic in earlier in...

Ahem....Norm 3 incoming after next weeks game. Two more to go after that. Norm 3 of the Category 4 title secure. And I am pretty sure I am getting my first category 3 norm.

To add to Blackferne's bragging rights, he just totaled me in an online match on chess.com. Caught me in a king-rook fork, forcing me to resign in disgrace. :woe:

Re: Server updated

At the time I was riding the nether rail to the Lonely Mountain and I don't know how or why this works but there are slab half blocks running above the rail and it seems like you move through them. Not sure if that is the cause of the issue.

I DIDN'T MOVE WRONGLY! THAT IS LIBEL!

I did however try to swim in lava as a way to get back to spawn quickly. It didn't work as intended.

Since my last log in I see someone (Bulwark) built an Alamo (complete with basement) and a HEB.

Jess says the HEB needs to have curbside pickup.

Re: Unsolicited Bragging

I was trying to explain the rank of chess titles to people yesterday and said "If chess master is king, category 4 title is like Baron, the lowest title in the british noble system."

If I get this I will expect you guys to call me Baron von Blackferne.
