Merk vs. IndyDDR: Waiting for a Merk-acle

Postby Merk » Mon Jun 13, 2011 9:35 am

THIS THREAD IS THREE YEARS OLD HOLY SHIT THANKS FOR STICKING WITH IT GUYS

In case most of you haven't realized it, I'm kind of a fatty. My life story is pretty much - I was a fat greasy little kid and young teenager, I discovered DDR, I got my weight to about 150, had sex, got lazy and yo-yo'd back to 235 pounds thanks to Papa John's and the Olive Garden.

I was at Great X-Scape yesterday and pulled off a mediocre 5 greats on Sexy Planet (Oni). However, since I'm a fatty and my stamina is shot to shit, I thought this might be brag-worthy to Chad. Our text conversation went something like this:

Me: 5 greats on that sexy planet remix. beat that faggot
Chad: Sexy planet oni 5 greats? On DDR?
Me: Yup
Chad: Oh man. That's crazy! Did you record it?
Me: Fuck you
Me: I doubt you could do better
Chad: You're the BEST
Me: I'm sorry for boasting

Chad's obsequious mannerisms inspired me to make a thread and call him out on his DDR aptitude. Hence, I'm proposing a weekly challenge that will not only provide necessary drama for this message board, but also motivate the two of us to get better and, in my case, shed some of that excess fat.

HOW THIS WORKS:

Someone (other than Chad or I to make things interesting) will pick one song, Nonstop, or Oni course that Chad and I will play and try to achieve our highest score.

Since Chad and I both have lives at this point, the timeframe to post our score for a song/Nonstop/Oni will be one week.

Scores will be reported on the honor system. However, if one of us achieves a fairly high score outside of our expected range (like a high AA on a 10 or something) be prepared to back it up with a picture. Assume that all AAAs will require a picture.

Chad and I have made a multitude of proposition bets over the year (I'm currently down $4 I believe) and the prize for the song of the week will be bragging rights and $1 on the prop bet tab.

For the time being, all 10s with the exception of Bag / Sakura are off limits. Once I'm within 15 pounds of Chad's weight then it will be anything goes.

Exorbitant 9s (Exotic Ethnic, Healing Vision Angelic, Orion.78 Civilization, Xepher) are off limits as well until I reach 200 pounds. All 8s and easy 9s are okay.

The two above rules are put in place because, honestly, it would not be fair nor interesting. Chad would obviously win by sheer stamina alone (aka the "I'm fat" rules).

Any Nonstop or Oni that contains any of the barred songs are also off limits.

The DDR mix we will use will be Supernova a pretty new mix since that's what I only have access to (and conveniently enough that's what's installed on the DDR cabinet in Chad's house) so lolololol I guess you all can't pick any good songs! the song list will be large and varied!

I will update the first post in this thread throughout the challenge. The contest will continue until one of us concedes, until one of us clears the hardest Oni course (which will never happen), or until GXS closes down and I can't compete anymore.

ADDENDUM: This will all be held on singles. I can't reasonably afford doubles. NEVERMIND I OWN A MACHINE AND CAN DO DOUBLES NOW

Let's fucking do this!

It seems unfair if you can keep retrying the song over and over, especially since Chad has an arcade in his house so he's not gonna have to spend like $4 to retry to get a high score on Silent Hill doubles *ahem*

Anyways your first song is....

I may join your challenge for grins and to give me something specific to do while I'm playing DDR since I've been trying to do that more regularly myself.

And by "join your challenge" I just mean that I may post my own score for your song of the week. Expect it to be lower than either of yours regardless of weight.

Yeah, I know but I'm fine with that. He has the advantage of a machine in his house with rockin' pads but I'm confident in my sheer willpower to be better than Chad. You do bring up a good point though, I need to specify that this is all going to be on singles, I'm not shelling out $2 for doubles since I blow ass at it.

With that being said, we will do A (heavy) for the first song! I'm coming up to Fort Wayne this week so I may not have the opportunity to play as much as I'd like. RIOT YOU WANNA GO TO TnT THIS WEEKEEEEND?

Hell yeah. I was hoping other people would join in for shits and giggles. You will probably do better than me.

Horry shit you have no idea how excited I am. Too bad Meggy is gone I feel so bad for her but I know she'll be happy in Francophone land. You should have people over and we can play Marvel or some other nerd shit.

Are my three Strongbow beers still in the fridge?!?!

I'm game. Are you sure you want to mess with this?

http://ddr.ddrecall.com/user.php?mode=v ... &user=1308

Even with the machine, I doubt I'll play the song more than 3 or 4 times at most. I'm still work on project doubles.

Peeps can come over whenever. And yes there are some Strongbows still in there, along with that nasty lager. I think Meg drank one Strongbow though. I want to play fightmans badly. Come destroy me with Yun.

I rather doubt it. My PA has never been especially good on account of a lack of caring about it. I have exactly 0 AAAs or even black flags to my name. And I can probably count SDGs on one hand--if I even have any at all. Still, this should be entertaining nonetheless.

Also, this seems like a good reason to dust off your DD:Recall accounts. ;)

My last visit data is today since I just logged in to add you guys. But I did a quick check and it looks like I actually added some scores as late as November of last year. There was even a score for A from October 22: FC, 42 greats. That should be a pretty low bar for either of you.

Either you do or someone else created one with the name Merk.

Anyway, like I said, you guys should dust those accounts off. 6 years...wow.

I took a look at my profile and yeah that definitely looks like me. The lone score I have is actually pretty flipping good for 2005 standards which is probably why I put it up there.

I have a thing for only putting up decent scores. My VJArmy shit reflects that as well; it's all AAs and AAAs.

If you want to throw down a scoring challenge I'll be glad to give it a try. (Granted, I strongly doubt how good I will do since I just started playing again.)
