He used to be.  He hasn't played in 10 hours though so he might be a lil rusty.    :cool:

Whenever I rolling scissor with you 109k guys I get 30mm up the clacker  ;)

Kudos to you.  Forced me to fight your fight.  <S>

If you don't mind me asking, since both fights followed roughly the same path - what is it you were doing to turn inside so effectively?

I was bringing the nose around as tightly as I thought possible - playing with trim, flaps, throttle, throwing in mild yo-yo's, etc and still, you got in behind me, after a minute or so, slowly but surely, each time.

(To be clear, I am NOT suggesting anything foul - looking to improve upon my obvious luftberry deficiency).   :aok

Mensa, we've not had the best of luck setting up our duel, have we?

The majority of people who play AH2 are from the US, I feel that most aren't aware that I'm English, living in England and that there's a major time zone difference between our two countries. I work from 6:30AM to 4:00PM doing manual labour, I come home to the offices to continue on with the business side of things. I'm just too tired to do anything tonight.

It's a shame that we couldn't duel on Monday, I accept that we are both busy people and 'hit happens.

I feel that there's no point me being in this competition, it's just way to much hassle for what it's worth. Even if I won, or advanced by default, I don't fancy staying up 'till 2:00AM to duel Dedalos.

I hereby forfeit and grant Mensa the win, I wish you the best of luck sir. :salute

Any chance of putting the Euro guys on their own bracket (if they want to of course) and the winner of that bracket plays the winner of the US bracket?  It just does not sound right to have to forfeit because of schedule conflicts that there is no way around due to the time differences, if there could be an alternative.  Maybe too late now, but maybe not.  Euro winner plays US winner at the final.  That way, every one gets a chance to participate

I brought up the idea of adding an in game match making system similar to the game of which we do not speak, this would make the use of setting up duels via the forum completely redundant.
You would simply join a queue in game, wait for an opponent to join the queue and be ported into a private room to commence the duel. After the duel is complete, both parties would be ported back to the place where they queued, the lobby for instance.

There's been massive growth in the interest for competitive action since the Tri-Annual Duelling Bracket started up. I know this is on HTC's radar, but one can only hope.
