ok.. how about something different this time..

for this mini game.. everyone gets to challenge Darkelf's Destroyers.. and the contest will be to see who gives up the fewest homeruns..
this contest is fair for everyone.. because the lower teams might lose bad, but slower pitchers wont give up as many homeruns.. and the higher teams have a good idea how to pitch him.. so it will be interesting to see who wins this one.

the tiebreaker will be who gives up the fewest total runs

if we need another tiebreaker.. it will be who scores the most runs against him


this contest will start at Noon est and run till Noon est on tuesday.

each team can play darkelf 1 time (for now)
I dont want to say that teams can play him repeatedly, if that might bother him.. but if he says its ok.. we might change it to 2 or 3 times (not unlimited).. that way people can try different techniques, if they want.. but of course, he has to say its ok to play multiple games first..

since I wont be able to track when you start a game, like I could when you played my scrubs.. you will have to submit your game number along with total number of homeruns that darkelf scored on you..

now, everyone play Darkelf's Destroyers (http://207.188.30.98/go/on.ball.team?tid=64300)

if you play a game, please come in here and submit the result after your finished, whether its good enough to win or not

I'm scared to play him, since he seems to consistently score about 93.1 runs/game off me. :(

I decided to try something different. I almost maxed my pitcher. The results:

Pharoh's Ballers Game#38578 6 homeruns hit by DarkElf

On a bright side I did manage 3 off of his team. Though I got spanked 19-8 :(

Dark Elf's Destroyers - 4 HRs, 18 runs

Fightin' Aggies - 4 HRs, 6 runs

I lost track of how many hits that bounced off the wall though.

Dark Elf, check out my marathon thread (http://www.dvdtalk.com/forum/showthread.php?s=&threadid=230617) for me. :)

Damn, if I had known we were doing this contest today, I would have done some power training. I haven't trained in power since Friday...

FYI, I wasn't planning on power training again until tomorrow night (Tue), so I guess that works out well for this contest.

BTW, :lol: at Twik for this contest idea...

Whotony, that's amazing considering in our mini 6-game series we did, I *averaged* 9 homers a game off your pitchers. Great job! :up:
