Whac-a-Mod 3 [COMPLETE]

Thanks to all who participated in this great celebration, i hope you all enjoyed it :)

We'll post the results once all the games are complete, as to who won etc. If you successfully beat a mod, please don't expect to receive your medal until after all the games have come to an end.

Until next time......

--The Entertainment Team

Whac-an-Admin Special

The Admins have lost all of their Whac-an-Admin games in the past two contests.....Is today the day that they finally redeem themselves? [-o<

The first 3 people to post on my wall with the correct answer to the question below, will get an invite to the Whac-An-Admin Special :)

Game 6994809

Excluding the "admin" profile, how many official administrators have there been in Conquer Club history?

Now while I don't really care whether the mods or the community won, the fact that community members were discouraged from joining any whac-a-mod games after they won means the mods didn't exactly face the same level of competition as the last 2. I understand that it was done to let more people have a chance at a medal, but it sort of takes the bragging rights down a notch if the mods win.

Anyway, it was a fun time. Thanks to mods for taking the time to set up and play so many games.

I don't understand your logic. First of all, I believe people were discouraged from joining too many games during the last competition, although I also think that that was largely unenforced. But, let's take the first comp., which the mods won, as an example. How do you know that the people who joined multiple games didn't suck and that the mods wouldn't have faced stiffer competition had they been allowed to play a more varied segment of the community?

Don't try to tell me you think the people that join first are the bad players. The better players definitely are the ones that join first and play the most. Of course there will be a few exceptions to this, but it is definitely true more often than not
