Jousting returns to Tarlach/Ruari/Mari on Nao

Although I'm sad it wasn't a complete server merge and I'm apprehensive about how smoothly it will go, on the plus side, since Nao will have a larger population than Alexina, all you long suffering jousting fans on those servers will see regular jousting finals again! I'm looking forward to that!

    I'm in, jousting against NPCs gets boring because it's kinda predictable on what they'll do.

    Yep, real people are devious and sneaky and evil, but sometimes just plain stupid, so they make better opponents. I've taken my old clunker laptop out of mothballs, to see if I can have it up and running for the Nao finals. I hope so, I'd like to post them to my YouTube channel as well.

    Yes, in a future dimension.

    I will definitely be joining the jousting contests! I tried so hard to get enough people for those on Tarlach and more often than not it ended up not having enough people for finals, so I gave up eventually. I'll be so happy if these kick back up again!

    Would also be happy if more people did the prelims.

    I bet you jousting is still going to be neglected.

    You can actually joust using the mouse. The letters in the top left when you joust are actually buttons.

    Check out my YouTube channel on it. In terms of looking for players patterns it can't help since it only has Alexina finals (for now!!!!!), but there is a playlist of instruction videos. The mini-game is actually more complicated than it appears to be. Get ahead of the curve. Maybe you can be the first winner! I'll warn you though, I have a friend on Ruari that I've been tutoring. Should be a lot of fun though. I'm gonna come and record it, I won't be competing though.

    Maybe, but since Nao will have a bigger population than Alexina, and since Alexina has had steady finals, with only the occasional hick-up, since electrons first flowed through it, and since now there are items in the jousting shop worth getting, it may not be the case. Also, if I can get a steady stream of Nao finals videos posted on my YouTube channel then don't underestimate the power of vanity.

    On Alexina? Yes, you can see all of them since March 2013 on my YouTube channel.

    Jousting seems cool. :) I think I'll pop in sometimes just to give it a go.

    I'm giddy with school-girl anticipation at the thought of folks returning to jousting! XD

    If all goes well, 25 days until the first finals tournament.

    That's all mabi is, a mind game.

    Ironically, that's how I beat Adair back in G-whatevertheckitwas. But there is a simple strategy that is not guaranteed to beat the computer in any one match but will have you beat it much more often than not over time.
