      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

    140 TWA Me right now:
  2. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    363 Overall 19d, 20h, 39m, 59sec 6615.5 NM sailed Of all the legs I've raced in the last 3 installments of VORG, this was arguably the most annoying. It was definitely not a 'rich get richer' kinda leg until the approach on NZ; there was better air behind or to the lee for most of the race. Thanks Shorthanded a.k.a. The King of Michigan, for keeping the standings updated throughout. p.s. fuck the doldrums

    Indeed. I've been exchanging friendly rivalry messages with JazzyGear as well. I've got my eye on XC Race and Zezo. It would seem they are looking to pass Malaita outside, which is what I was trying to avoid. I may need to reevaluate. Indecision may or may not be my problem.
  4. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    This. Yeah, my original intention was to gybe across 3S and attempt move south around 175W. I was watching Marcusbelgicus fall off with presumable the same idea until they went stealth. So I went stealth, which is kinda funny to me now...it's not like I'm so great at this game that people are dying to see what I do next. I see Rainbow Spirit and Gybe Turkey followed through, I hope it works out for them. The racing between 10S and 30S is going to be brutal for both groups. Mom and Stufishing's Pacific Grand Tour route looks better each passing moment.

    Stuck in the middle with you.
  6. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    Clowns to the left of me, jokers on the right....here I am stuck - racing down the middle of the two prevailing groups for the 4th leg in a row and will most likely get screwed because I didn't commit and spent the last week of the leg hedging my bets. Wait, that's not how that song goes.
  7. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    After careful consideration we've decided to take Zorro off the evening helm shift. His shenanigans proved costly last night. Reminder to self: Double-check course and close VR app before sliding device into pocket.
  8. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    Looking at the initial course settings of the top 50 boats, I count 10 of them heading east. I'm sure some them are trolling but it could get interesting.
  9. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    Congrats Stu... While I wasn't racing with the lead pack, I had some very tight racing with my pack Magool and A-Squared (From The Rail), right to the end. prettyhatemachine 19d 1h 18m 59sec / 7863.2 nm sailed / Place: 862
  10. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    Yes, though I wouldn't say I'm intentionally going slow. I'm just not really paying attention to the other races...just grabbing all my cards from each race at the same time.
  11. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    8 seconds between first and second. That's crazy. Congrats Your Mom. I had some tight racing with the Hog and Gybe Turkey most of the way. Held my track north just long enough to have it pay off before heading to the finish. The next order of business...I wonder how many credits I'll get for these 39 weather / 10 stealth / 8 help cards.
  12. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    So I'm enjoying this installment of the VORG. Still getting use to the card system. How many of the top players will be hording the 'stealth' cards to use 24 - 48 hours from the finish of the leg? It could get very interesting.
