Of course, streaks are there to be broken
/me wonders when Sut will notice this thread...

Oh yeah, well done. Nice number !

Would beat him if I could, but I can't. Just emptied my clip (well, as much as I futilely cared to) and couldn't manage much.
Pity that a couple folks who could beat him won't attack him. Gotta love clans, right? Must be nice to have a clan with 13.5 million combined PR (the second largest clan has around 8.5 million) and have your raw score only reduced by 5.7%... I find it hard to believe that no one thinks that is an abject blight on the game.
Congratulations, Ranger, you have a fantastic team, no doubt about that. Sorry I can't be happy about a 5-figure win streak, though. That equals stagnation in my book. Course, it can hardly be considered your fault that you're so hard to beat and that the only once who can won't because of stupid, stupid clans. *smile*

I do love clans. Gives one a sense of friendship. My clanmates and I trade items as needed. Give strategy advice freely, etc...
Should it be my fault that BR has 5 of the top players in the game right now? I should think not.
Should our penalty for MPR be raised, perhaps, but that is for Jon alone to decide.
Even if DAWG and I were not in the same clan, it should be obvious that we would have some sort of non aggression pact by now.

Indeed. Your fourth line is the only one I was trying to impact, and as you eloquently state, that is entirely up to Jonathan.
Congratulations again on an excellent team!

You cannot really use PR in comparing clans. One must use MPR. BR has over 8M MPR while there are a couple of clans about 6M MPR.
As you know, one can artifically inflate the PR to skew stats. Right now I am positive Krang could lose 1M PR easily without change to his fighting abilities.
November 1 2006 11:34 AM EST
That is a very good point too.
November 1 2006 1:19 PM EST
yes ranger is right my pr is inflated for a reason and not because I need it I can drop down a good 1.4 ish mill on my pr and be just fine...
November 1 2006 3:08 PM EST
then why have it? isn't it decreasing battle rewards?
November 1 2006 3:12 PM EST
I have my reasons, and yes I know I am retarded some times so don't even ask why.
But hey this thread is about RANGER!!!
CONGRATS to the MAN!!!
November 1 2006 3:13 PM EST
oh, yes, congrats ranger :)
I thought the top ten were exempt from that.
November 1 2006 3:23 PM EST
i know about that, but I'm not sure on how it works, it would be a bit weird if you could have 20 mil PR and still get the same rewards as having 2 mil PR.
and that was about fighting down, and not getting penalised, i still believe it would affect the outcome.

Yah, congrat Ranger.
Now, if anyone want to *ruin* Ranger running score, just hire some top PR guy to do it. I bet with enough bribe ($$$), you can have some backstabbing assasin willing for the fame and glory of $. Hehe.

Congratulations Ranger! A very impressive feat. Go for 100k. xD

16,576 was the end.
Thanks to all who posted in the thread.
November 2 2006 10:38 AM EST
Are you sure it wasn't 16,578? It took me three battles to beat you... *smile*
November 2 2006 10:46 AM EST
Your number is the correct one.
Now to start a whole new streak.
November 2 2006 10:47 AM EST
Alas, my 4 attempts were in vain, but please tell me you didn't purchase that extra minion just to beat the streak Sut
<sarcasm>Off course he did, that was the plan all along, to spend 28+ million on a new minion just to beat Ranger on one of his high streaks.</sarcasm>
Anyways, we knew he was going to get a new minion for a while now, it was just a matter of time before he bought it.
Congrats to the Man of the Day, Ranger, and his assassin Sut. My hats off to you two.

This time I bought as soon as had the cash and time to experiment with BA after buying it (I actually had the cash last night right before going to bed). Otherwise I spend it on things like CoIs, AG upgrades, EBs, etc. etc. etc.
The new minion is pretty much worthless, only added 6-7 reliable targets (and not ones much bigger than average fightlist opponent). So, I should have just sold out and bought myself something nice. Oh well, Joe without Dave is nothing, so it had to be done.
