If ever there were two teams determined to win a main season game then it was yesterday’s battle between Phoenix and Lucky 13.
This was played more like a playoff final rather than an early season game as both teams fought hard to win the xp collecting contest.
One correction – that “Feelin’ Lucky” splash page wasn’t ours. It appears was the creator of that splash.
Randy Sult from team Phoenix was even inspired to showcase a splash page which was created for the clash and was clearly designed to add to the pressure of this high-intensity clash.
With only a few hours into the contest Lucky 13 was already counting its points in the billions – long since having consigned the ‘smaller’ millions of points to history.
Phoenix did what do best when faced with pressure like this…they did nothing at all for quite some time. Phoenix like to lull opponents into a false sense of security by playing dead and then pouncing near the end.
Did they pounce yesterday…they sure did.
By 3pm eastern they were well in the lead – Phoenix 15,384,841,796 Lucky 13 4,261,665,531 – with 15 billion XP to the 4 billion earned by Lucky 13.
This is around 700 million xp per member on average gained at a rate of more than one billion per hour and points like that can only be earned by amazing team work.
I wondered if Lucky 13 could come back from this onslaught but they were determined. Perhaps sensing that Phoenix had made their move a little too early, they opted to pile on the pressure in the final stages of the game and they kept up this pace right until the very end.
This must have been the hardest fought match of the entire contest so far. It shows how good these two teams are when you can gain 45 billion team points in 24 hours and still lose to a team which collected 64 billion points.
This is a combined points total of more than 109,000,000,000.
In other words the two teams were gaining points at the rate of 4.5 billion an hour or 75 million every minute which is more than 1.2 million every second.

Elsewhere yesterday we saw easy wins for Ultimate Surf Warriors, Uber Surfers, Easy Team, In To Win and Alphas. Lucky 13 Too beat Enjoy Spirits in the badge hunting contest, but it was a relatively close game, by yesterday’s standards at least.
Lucky 13, which has a much-needed day off today, are now top of the table but Renegades are in action today against AdKreator and a win today on the nerd surf contest would be enough to put them top.
Right now Renegades are winning – Renegades 336500 Adkreator 26200 – and must be firm favorites to claim victory in today’s game.
