NIGHTMARE Sat, 27 August 2005 11:28
Hi all,

I wanted to write this topic in honnor of one great player we don't see that much in the forum.

Ranking is one point, but not the only way to qualify players.

So here is my nightmare players list: those against I lost a max of points:

1. PETERHANS
2. KOTAY (Sale Gosse, Rouge qui Tache,...)
3. BASSIE / SALVE

Of course I didn't play all the top 1000 players, so other "nightmare players" could born later.

I am not a coward: I invit these 3/4 players to challenge me when they see me in the lobby.

And you: What are your own "nightmare players"?

I have 1 player that haunts me in my nightmares and that is Anu.

In the Middle ages I would have accused her of being a witch, because no mather what I do, she wins. She must have some magic potion or something. Confused Confused Confused

Other players I get nervous about are Thad and Wuonex, but with them I still have the hope to win once in a while.

Pur,
Rode katers

btw. my mother was a black cat, so I like witches Razz Razz Smile .

The very same for me with PILKE! I just can't win against her... . We had 6 games so far and I never even came close.

But I know some fine day I'll make it. Very Happy

Re:NIGHTMARE Sat, 27 August 2005 22:03
Here are mine, in no particular order because I struggle against each of them at different times:

Bassie, Cinderella Jac, thekid, Pilke, Rek, Anu, Kotay, and finally the man I have yet to beat even once, Whitetrain (I WILL get you Whitetrain, mark my words... Evil or Very Mad Twisted Evil

All of these players lay the right route at the right time, usually get longest route, block at critcial times and still have what they need for their route, and finally, when the chips are down, always seem to have the right destination cards when they need them.

I won't list the players I dominate because that would be pretentious. Wink Cool

Interesting thread idea, toutoune, thanks.

Best,
SKM


(Oh, toutoune, why did you list Bassie/Salve?? Bassie is not Salve to my knowlege and besides, Bassie is much higher ranked.)

Hii all

I really didn t know that I was so a nightmare.... but I also have mine it is PILKE, I loose so often against her, maybe I am not so concentrated, and she takes so long to play, it makes me sleepy Smile but actually, there are quite lots of top100 players I still havent played, so maybe there will be some more Rolling Eyes



As I know Salve doesnt have a good ranking because the whole family is playing on this account ( she, her husband, and the kids) so I really think that both parents worth top50 players !! ) and the ranking doesnt mean anything .... there are also really good 2er-players with a low ranking but not so good ranked because they are not so good with 3-4-5er

My "Nightmare" players are...

Pilke. Played 9 matches against her and lost them all. I can never seem to get a win against her. And then there is the psychological aspect: I already feel lost after 2 moves... So stupid, but still... She's my number 1 "Nightmare". Uh Oh

EXPhysiker. Played 7 matches against him and only managed to win one. I don't know what it is with this guy, but he's either clairvoyant or...... Anyway, he always takes exactly the tracks that are necessary for my tickets, even before I laid down anything. Like he knows what my tickets are...
No accusation. Just wondering how this is possible. My number 2 "Nightmare". Doubtful

Others that always give me a hard time are WhiteTrain (formerly known also as DasZuggespenst) Airbus and Razamanaz (that includes all his accounts from 1 to 18).

And then there are TheKid and SKMorefield. But with them I always feel like I can beat them (yet, so far, no luck...).

Great thread, Toutoune! Thumbs Up

D.I.S.

P.S.
And as an addition: Players I always have great* matches with!
Rode Katers
Anu
TheKid
SKMorefield
Gwen
Thadd
Horo
Schnellzug
Make72
Dendagard
And many more!

Also thanks to people like Wuonex, Jac, Rolli13, Nayeli and many other great social players. I know I'm forgetting names here, but know you are much appreciated!!! Smile

D.I.S.

*) With 'great' I mean exciting matches were anything goes and both players have an equal opportunity to win.

Oh, we poor finnish ladies, what a reputation we have Shocked Are we really such nightmares Very Happy

I won't be getting any "first times" anymore, so I am happy to enjoy the the first times of a dear player: Anu 1774 and 4th (now 1785 and 3rd), congratulations, well done Smile I am so happy I have met you here, and same can be said about many nice players I have had an opputunity to spend time here with.

I am having a break from online-playing, so account pilke is soon giving room for other players, at least for a month. Although this is a good-bye-writing, you won't totally get rid of me. I have the final games to play after some german gentlemen have desided which one of them wants to try how rusty I am after the break. Fortunately my dear husband "riemu" promised to play some practising games with me. I need to practise having fun in games, otherwise there is no reason to play in finals. I had such a hard time getting him play some on-line games after a long pause, but fortunately succeeded Smile

Re:NIGHTMARE Mon, 12 September 2005 02:05
Nightmare opponents ?

I want to put Dumbot3 at the top of my Nightmare List. A good second is Dumbot1 which seems to follow the same tactics as Dumbot3. Dumbot2 is also an 'AngstGegner'. I wonder if he/she is a male/female. Never answered any of my questions. Jac_ of course cannot be omitted in my list. Despite her good advices I have only won *one* game (out of 33 or so) against her. If I am right, in that game I had 26 locomotives and needed only easy Western Tickets to be fullfilled.

yaron is my nightmare. For some reason I just can't beat him more than once out of five games or so.

Other than that, though, the only opponents to whom I've never won are Anu and thaddäus, though we've only had one match each.

Hi Lea!

léachris - Champagne wrote on Sat, 17 September 2005 09:45


Have a n nice week-end all, and welcome back to that player

I quess you are speaking of me? Is this a joke or are you really believing so?

At least then I got an explanation why you have been so unpolite and mean to me without any reason. You have thought I was cheating with accounts?

So you don't like me and think I am not enough good player to be on the top on my own?

Here is the answer to you: I have never cheated.


léachris - Champagne wrote on Sat, 17 September 2005 09:45

Once a upon a time, there was a TTR player with several accounts, but such a nice player, nobody could guess it could be way to keep a spot at the top of the ranking list...( that player was so often beating 2 or 3 other accounts, especially after too many lost games in a row Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes )

- when multiple accounts began not to be well looked , this player decided to disappeared, but let one of the other accounts at the top of the ranking list,
- the day when the "second account" fell down in the ranking..., this player appeared again Shocked , winning against one of the accounts who lose so often against the player


So who are you thinking are my second accounts? Anu, I quess from writing but who else?

I can really assure to you that Anu is not me. I have met her, but only after getting to know her here. If you think she is me because she is using same kind of strategie, there is a reason for that. I have told her all my strategies and watched many of her games and told afterwards what she could do better in my opinion. I have told my main strategy to 3 other players too (they are not finnish players).

I know I have played a lot of games with Anu, but only because I like her a lot. Earlier days I won her a lot too, but then she wasn't good ranked and I lost much more points to her when I lost, than what I gained when winning against her.

THIS IS UNBELIVEABLE!!!! I am gonna say this only once. I AM NOT anyones cheateraccount Mad

I play a lot, and yes when pilke played we played much together, but hey.......there are many other players who play much together. Why I could not play with someone from my own country, there are not so many players from Finland??????

I just wanted to play and learn how to become a good player, never thought that someone could think that I am a cheater Sad

I hope that I still can play with you all wonderful people I have get known bynow, without you thinking that I might be some kind of cheater.

Hello Léachris and everyone!

I also got the idea that you Léa were talking about Pilke and thinking Anu (and some others too) is her second account. I have to say, I'm furious. This is a very serious accusation and I think nobody should make such and accusation without evidence, without displaying ANY evidence and without being straight and honest when saying that. First I didn't want to interfere in any way but if not before, at the latest your answer to Pilke's answer was too much for me. You are talking about a player a think highly of, who has never hurt anyone (only other players's rankings) and who is always polite to everyone. She does not deserve this.

I can't stand all these hints and allegations Léa, like

you would be the only one who could say it...

I said what my weird mind created, that's all. period






You could at least be fair and open and say what you really mean.

Here is some evidence of the opposite:

I was so irritated by this that I did some research. Anu registered December 26, 2004. She played 206 games before January 22, 2005, when Pilke registered (yes, I really went all the way to the first games of Anu's, seeing 268 pages of Anu's games history! I can't believe I did that). In those 206 first games Anu played mostly 4ers, but some 2ers too. When Pilke started playing (I went there too, huh, another 68 pages of games history) she lost her two first games to a DumbBot! Hey, nobody is that bad after playing 206 games! Of her 12 first games, she only won two, both against a DB. I say it again: after playing 206 games you say? And I tell you, those games were not against top players. Of her first 32 games Pilke won only 11.

I smell paranoia here. I think what this is all about, is that you Léa are jealous of Pilke because she is a liked player, has a high ranking and she has beaten you 8/8 in your last games (9/11 total). I think that's why you haven't even played against her after 05/16/2005. I don't like to be mean to anyone, but you are being mean to Pilke and Anu -as far as I know- without any reason and you are trying to damage their reputations with a despicable manner, so I'm taking this emotionally.

I hope no-one else thinks this way of my fellow countrymen. I believe no-one does.

Sorry Toutoune about writing this on a thread that was meant be about a completely different subject.

Hi,

I think, I have to say something about my nightmares. Smile

I have two nightmares:

1.This thread begins to become a nightmare, because everybody is fighting against lea, which began to fight. Rolling Eyes
2.Everybody fight against each other.

OH SORRY, YOU ASKED FOR MY NIGHTMARE PLAYERS. Shocked

Well, there are some people, i don't like to play, i think of Marvin13. He is really silly.

There are some people i like to play with, like leachris-Champagne, Jac_, Nanni15, losgehts, squarefee, Miriamel, Anu_ and last but not least Peter de Zeeuw.

I like those players best, because the are really nice. Smile

There are some people I play with, because I also want to beat them. Cool

Above all Jac_ and Peter de Zeeuw.

(Don't cry, be proudly) Smile

All this persons are really nice, you should know them. Very Happy

I hope, you noticed my first and second NIGHTMARE.

Greetings

Rolli

I chat sometimes with anu & pilke on msn. Sometimes simultaneously with them both typing at the same time. I've exchanged photos. Pilke has observed me playing against Anu when I was ranked higher than Anu (don't laugh, it was actually the case for a little while...) and I won.

For them to be the same person it would have to be the greatest hoax since the Trojans looked out their gate and thought "Cool - a horse!!"

Honestly, léachris, I like you, indeed. Very Happy

I don't think that your accusations are based on facts (only on negative feelings), and I do think that the feelings and maybe even the reputation of pilke and Anu were hurt by your posting. Sad

However, I am myself ashamed remembering numerous occasions, where I overhastily sayed (or did) embarrassing, offending or really stupid things, just because I am often too controlled by my emotions. Confused

So, you are probably just not as diplomatic, polite and self-restraining as some other people around, but in my opinion you are someone that is able to cause heavy (and often positive) emotions around you. Smile

Well, if some understood that I recognized that I probably made a mistake, that's a good point...

If some don't, I can't add anything,

Hi

Okay, lets calm down a bit. We are in the middle of the nations cup and everybody involved in this thread is playing in a team...
And the reason why everybody is playing in the cup is, that these players are (usually) very nice, polite and well beloved by other players and are known as honest people.

So, Léa has made a mistake and she was not very polite in this thread. But stop lashing out on her, forgive her and forget this dark episode.

And to Léa only one advice: Please make an proper apology to Pilke AND Anu, i missed this in your latest contributions to this thread. This could be happen by pm or in this thread (maybe it is done at this moment, then forget the advice please).

bye, erps

P.S. I'm so happy being part of this community. Don't destroy a wonderful thing! And for a little FUN: If you understand german, have a look at the german thread "Interviews zum Nationen Cup", it's worth reading, but untranslatable

Re:NIGHTMARE Sun, 18 September 2005 03:59
While this has been a very entertaining read (sure beats logging onto the forums to read new posts about TTR Europe stations or other boring subjects), I just need to put a word in for Pilke here. Anu, you're good, a legitimate top 10, and I'm taking nothing away from your ability when I say when I play you it's awfully tough but at least I feel as if I have a chance. However, when I play Pilke I'm often lost by the first 3 lays. She is a true master at this game. I have only managed to beat her twice, and both games are imprinted on my memory even though they were months ago and I have played over 1000 games. She has beaten me at least a dozen times, if not more. (I don't remember those quite as well Rolling Eyes )

Pilke has always been more than forthright about her 2nd accounts, even when she didn't have to.

What would be Pilke's motive for doing what you said said she did? She was already top 3.

Lea, I do appreciate your math mind and your ability to reason deductively. You have done this succesfully in the past ('Zug' = 'thedude' being the best example). Having said that, Rogue's post was an excellent case study of deductive reasoning, a process which you should have gone through before making your accusations in this case. Shocked

You know I like you lea, but I do agree with those who think you owe Pilke and Anu an apology.

Having said that, I do think there is room on these forums for accusations so long as they are properly documented. If we police ourselves the funny business will be kept to a minimum.

On another note, why won't the devs do something about mainpower/halifax/mikeymouse/idiot/whatever...?? Confused


Best,
SKM

Re:NIGHTMARE Sun, 18 September 2005 13:24
Well,

my last contribution to that thread

PILKE AND ANU, SORRY for my mistake,
( but these games with this strange guest account "riemu" upset me when you said you didn't want to play for one month and always refuse to play with guests )

OK, I won't try to find cheaters everywhere anymore Crying or Very Sad


( as a very good friend told me : if the 25 top players would have 2 accounts each, we would never be better ranked than 50 and we''d live with that, there are much more important problems in life Wink )

I agree with skm, the problem about mainpower is much more important for the community

One last thing : angel spoke about people " speaking in the back "

I just heard that some people are trying to make the community believe that I use ( or used) to speak on the french forum in a bad way about some players who couldn't understand.

That's a lie, and perhaps it was made on purpose, to make me realize how a lie ( or a unverifiable facts ) can hurt, if it was the goal, thank you : it worked !

PS : to erps : I can't read german well enough, and all the online translator I found gave no understandable results Laughing Laughing Laughing

Until now I thought I don't have a NIGHTMARE opponent, but here he is - KOTAY the indestructable!

Today, I lost 3 games in a row against him (I was disappointed every time I looked at my tickets, and I never came even close beating him), and due to this shock I accidentally stepped into a 4-player-game and made 3rd place.
This was a drop from more than 1770 to less than 1750 - *grrrrrrrr*.

Luckily, I found some other players with decent ranking that are no nightmare for me.....

Dumbot2 is also an 'AngstGegner'. I wonder if he/she is a male/female. Never answered any of my questions.
