Shaun Hegarty

Shaun Hegarty I'm worried about Matt.

Steve Rogers

Steve Rogers 694 correct conundrums already - and its still day one. Good effort!

Charlie Reams

Charlie Reams Kirk solved 2010 in 24 hours during the Marathon, so there's plenty of life left in this contest yet!

Ian Volante

Ian Volante I'm only up there cos I was up at 8 this morning for my sins!

Kirk Bevins

Kirk Bevins How the heck is Bayfield up there? I'm starting to lose the will to live.

Scott Phillips

Scott Phillips would have been more fun if you fell 10m for each wrong answer or failure. when i say fun, i mean warped.

Matt Morrison

Matt Morrison Warped indeed. I'd be mining at -1592m underground.

Kirk Bevins

Kirk Bevins -1592m underground? That means you'd be 3rd highest.

Charlie Reams

Charlie Reams What is this, an autism contest?

Kai Laddiman

Kai Laddiman I want to join! I want to join! I want to join! I want to join! I want to join! I want to join! I want to join! I want to join! I want to join! I want to join! I want to join! I want to join! I want to join! I want to join! I want to join! I want to join!

Tom Rowell

Tom Rowell turning into a nice battle at the top

Tom Rowell

Tom Rowell turning into a nice battle at the top

Charlie Reams

Charlie Reams Yep, very impressive. Still plenty of time for others to get in the mix too.

Ryan Taylor

Ryan Taylor I think the fact that Kirk has answered roughly 90% of his correct is impressive. Especially considering when the majority of these are done in big chunks where it is so easy to not solve or mistype simple ones due to fatigue.

Scott Phillips

Scott Phillips yeah ryan, like everyone else just does 20 at a time.........

Shaun Hegarty

Shaun Hegarty How the hell did Kirk and Matt get overtaken to such an extent?

Giles H

Giles H They just weren't online...

Shaun Hegarty

Shaun Hegarty How the hell did Kirk and Matt get overtaken to such an extent?

Shaun Hegarty

Shaun Hegarty Damn refresh. Ah fair enough.

Kirk Bevins

Kirk Bevins I go to London for one day to partake in another hobby of mine (oo er missus) and come back to find this. Impressive stamina.

Matt Morrison

Matt Morrison That hobby is clearly not telling us so that you can meet up and go for a drink like we did with Makepeace and Jono t'other day. Bastard.

Charlie Reams

Charlie Reams Don't think I didn't notice you, Morrison, doing the bare minimum to get on top of me. I have re-assumed my rightful place.

Matt Morrison

Matt Morrison oh ok, you're actually going there are you? i'm logging on now then.

Scott Phillips

Scott Phillips when we get one wrong, could it not just go to the next one without waiting for the rest of the clock to run down? seems like a waste of time doing nothing really, as wer are not playing an opponent..........just a thought, not a critcism. cheers

Giles H

Giles H But then some person could just deliberately get them all wrong and climb faster than the best solver here.

Jack Morgan

Jack Morgan Yes it's a good system as is, you're rewarded for getting them correct but yet rubbish people (ie, me) still have a chance if they really put the time in.

Charlie Reams

Charlie Reams Eat it, Morrison.

Tom Rowell

Tom Rowell its broked

Tom Rowell

Tom Rowell its fixed

Charlie Reams

Charlie Reams I'm coming for you, Morrison.

Charlie Reams

Charlie Reams You're right, I fixed it to make Kirk lose.

Matt Morrison

Matt Morrison I've put a good length in between us Reams.

Charlie Reams

Charlie Reams I'm coming up your rear and fast, Morrison.

Jim B

Jim B Even though Giles has less than 1000 to go, I'm still pretty sure Innis can win this thing.

Matt Morrison

Matt Morrison No more than 60-80m or so stretches now Charlie or I'm going to lose the will to show you my penis.

Matt Morrison

Matt Morrison Oops, sorry. I put the innuendo in directly without converting it to a euphemism.

Giles H

Giles H Mm. Yes. Getting to the top... was um... interesting. Very interesting.

Charlie Reams

Charlie Reams :D Well done Giles. There will be a relevant leaderboard some time soon.

Charlie Reams

Charlie Reams Good work KB. Once two people have finished I'll start rolling out the various leaderboards, they look a bit sad with only one name.

Kai Laddiman

Kai Laddiman Kirk has disappeared from the leaderboard, is that deliberate?

Matt Morrison

Matt Morrison yes.

Tom Rowell

Tom Rowell he went to the big leaderboard in the sky

Oliver Garner

Oliver Garner Doing it again Matt?

Matt Morrison

Matt Morrison Thought I might as well.

Tracey Mills

Tracey Mills My aim is top 10 atm

Adam Gillard

Adam Gillard Very impressive perseverance with a relatively consistent gradual pace, Tracey. Almost there now!

Tracey Mills

Tracey Mills Waited long enough Adam

Tracey Mills

Tracey Mills GRRR...gotta start again!

Sam Cappleman-Lynes

Sam Cappleman-Lynes Excellent hit % from Adam (95 as writing) - must be the best ever at this point?

Adam Gillard

Adam Gillard I think Chris Davies got a similar percentage over his entire Ascension.

Sam Cappleman-Lynes

Sam Cappleman-Lynes Shame that the "Most correct" leaderboard for Ascensions only has the raw number, not a percentage.

David Barnard

David Barnard From around 50% on the first ascension to 87% this time, practise practise, practise

Nadroj Rekrab

Nadroj Rekrab big 14% from the nad

Tracey Mills

Tracey Mills Need to do another ascension !

David Barnard

David Barnard Worth doing I think, I am just to make sure I know them

Adam Gillard

Adam Gillard You'd have to be mad to do more than one Ascension cycle!

Tracey Mills

Tracey Mills That is just obsessive !

David Barnard

David Barnard Was I ever not obsessed?!?!

Tracey Mills

Tracey Mills No I never implied that !

David Barnard

David Barnard haha

Tracey Mills

Tracey Mills :) lol

Callum Todd

Callum Todd "A total of 1,002,944 Ascension conundrums have been attempted" - it must have been very recently that number 1 million was attempted. Is there any way of finding out when exactly that mark was crossed?

Adam Gillard

Adam Gillard Yeah if you count from the first Ascension game and work your way through the game archives.

Callum Todd

Callum Todd I guess I could go through Sherpa Shilty's game archive and count backwards from the 1,003,764. Even that I can't be arsed with though. Let's just say if you've played an Ascension game in the last week:

*pop-up with flashing text* YOU COULD BE THE 1,000,000th PLAYER OF AN ASCENSION ROUND!!!

Quinn James

Quinn James JW: 5980 m in *4* hours.

Alan Young

Alan Young I've been at it for ages, I'm genuinely bored of Conundrum attacks but it is helping me in games when I'm in crucial conundrums

Dave Noble

Dave Noble I doubt there is still an interest , but just for info, I think that the 1 millionth conundrum was attempted Phil Collinge on 5th october in game at 04:19 and the unsolved conundrum was PATTEEERN ( PENETRATE )

John Beresford

John Beresford I thought you were only meant to get each conundrum once? I've had some twice now.

Tracey Mills

Tracey Mills Need to more of this !

Elwin Carlos

Elwin Carlos Anyone know why my Ascension height isn't a multiple of 10?

Chris Hare

Chris Hare If I had to guess, it would have something to do with conundrums that have been removed from the lexicon at some point after you'd solved them, but I didn't think Ascension applied that sort of thing retro-actively.

George Armstrong

George Armstrong Nice %...

ross k

ross k 10k metres with 13 hours is unbelievable

Sean D

Sean D that wouldn't be Chris's first go at this, but insane nonetheless

ross k
