      Re: Derby Gathering IV - February 16th

      Hey all,

      It was really great to see everyone there today. There were definitely some of the "usual" crowd that I was surprised not to see but thrilled to see so many new faces.

      As I said in game, now that you have me on your friend list, please let me know if you ever need a hand or want to race. I'm ALWAYS up to testing out new pets!

      Some other things -

      Congrats to Team Icy BlackHeart & Drumguy01 and Hannahzon2011 & Chris for making it into the finals of the 2v2 event. Anyone know Chris's Central name? Chris....you there?

      3rd and 4th place will be determined by how the finals go. If I'm not mistaken the brackets might be...inaccurate. The bracket says
      Morgrim Dragonstaff (Morgrim and Alura?) raced Icy BlackHeart (Rylee and Chris) and
      Little Panda (Matthew Rainblood and Ellie Rosethorn) raced Hannazon2011 (Jennifer Sandheart and Matthew Redstaff)

      But I think that's backwards, no? I'll adjust the brackets accordingly as it will make a difference for prizes

      (ugh - photomancy is horrible! REALLY should have taken a screen cap instead...)

      Anyway, thanks again for all who showed up. The derby community struggles because Kings Isle has really neglected Derby in game but meeting folks like I did today gives me hope! Keep racing everyone!

      Casp & Vanessa

      Re: Derby Gathering IV - February 16th

      @Caspeen and @VanessaMythdust had a great time the other day getting tips from the pros

      You know I was thinking since it is so hard to get races these days maybe we could have a set time that people could try to set up races at the same. Like 'we meet every such and such a day at such and such time, come when you can'. Would give people a better chance of racing with others. Obviously wouldn't expect every person to make it every time just try to get a better chance to get more people and more races. I know I would come whenever I could.

      Just a thought, what do you think?

      Great suggestion!

      Back in the day - I mean, WAY back, I think even before Vanessa ran her first race - there were a few of "us" that tried something like that. It was Central racers, but it wasn't set up through this site or anything - just a few of us that wanted a better chance at getting ranked races. Anyway, it might have worked a few times, even back then there was a small few folks who pretty much dominated. And after the same couple people kept showing up and the same few lost and the same few crushed...well, the ones losing rank all the time lost interest in showing up!

      After that, I had an idea to maybe make a Tournament out of it - have players check in at a certain time, in game, with me, screen cap their rank, and then see who can rank up the most at the end. Maybe after a few hours? Maybe after a few days? The weekend? A week? Not who gets to the highest rank, but who can win the most medals. That would be someway to generate an "incentive" to get in line, I thought, but I've been the only one has thought so.

      Anyway - it certainly is something to consider. Maybe I'll put a poll out and see if there's a good time that works for a few folks?

      Casp

      I think maybe have a couple races set up with regular pets, and then others with derby pets, maybe even some in between. So people feel like they have a place they 'fit'. They would feel more like they had a fair shake at winning and then maybe become more interested in moving towards the more competitive 'perfect pet' races.

      I know just getting the knowledge I got the other day (and also realizing that pushing both the 'up' button and the 'space' bar continuously worked much better ) I saw my pet take off for the first time and gained a ton of confidence.

      I think giving people a comfortable spot and also giving them the information and help they need to move forward might help. It's the getting them to try that's the hard part. But if we had a repeated set time and place, maybe we could. . .

      P.S. which would also help crowns players like myself I don't mind paying for a day pass if I know I'll be getting to use it
