# AoPS FTW! Hangout

Hey you guys!

I've been playing a whole lot of FTW! (For the Win!) on AoPS (Art of Problem Solving). For those who don't know what it is, it's a real-time competition where you solve problems and try to collect the most amount of points out of all of the people who are playing.

I've been playing in particular with Sharky and Trevor B., which has been a lot of fun. But I was thinking, if you guys are interested, you can schedule a game with some people on this discussion. If you want to be part, just subscribe to the discussion, and whenever somebody wants to play a match with some familiar faces (well, people), they'll leave a comment and you're off!

It's really competitive, and I'll work on getting a date set for a BUNCH of people from Brilliant to play all at once. If you guys have a preference for when we should do it, comment below. Otherwise, you can @mention somebody and challenge them to a game of FTW!

Enjoy, and don't forget to like and reshare! :D

Hey guys, I am called SHARKYKESA. I recently started playing FTW. Yesterday I played someone called SHARKYBOY.

- 3 years, 8 months ago

Wait, is your real name Sharky?

- 3 years, 8 months ago

Nope.

- 3 years, 8 months ago

:O

- 3 years, 8 months ago

Hey! When I joined in FTW, I played my first game with SHARKYKESA . When the game ended , he left and there were only 3 players in the lobby and I didn't know how to start a game with them . Pls. help me, I am new!!

- 3 years, 8 months ago

Oh. That's you.

- 3 years, 8 months ago

My username is bobthesmartypants. Count me in ^_^

- 3 years, 8 months ago

k next time make a password and lets do a quick CD.

- 3 years, 8 months ago

Not just for daniel, for brilliant

- 3 years, 8 months ago

If you want only Brilliantics to play, just set the password as "Brilliant" or some other thing (as long as you tell other Brilliantics what it is).

- 3 years, 8 months ago

Great idea

- 3 years, 8 months ago

I got flood muted for the second time

- 3 years, 7 months ago

Lol. I used to get flood muted all the time when I played FTW a lot.

For those of you who don't know, if you chat too much in a very short amount of time (like for example, typing 10 messages in 10 or less seconds), then you automatically cannot talk for a designated amount of time (not very long, though). If you want to see how it works, keep typing "Hi" and then pressing enter over and over again until it says in green letters something along the lines of "Sorry, you have been temporarily muted" or something like that (I forgot).

- 3 years, 6 months ago

No, his is like hwl0403 which I don't get. :O

- 3 years, 6 months ago

I played him as daviddog123 2 days ago.

- 3 years, 6 months ago

Flood muted?

- 3 years, 7 months ago

Flood muted?

- 3 years, 7 months ago

A little late to the party, but I'm ATP on AoPS :P

- 3 years, 8 months ago

Awesome! I'll look out for you. :D

- 3 years, 8 months ago

Hey @Finn Hulse @Sharky Kesa, I'm going on in a minute, want to join?

- 3 years, 8 months ago

Sorry, Trevor, I was asleep when you asked.

- 3 years, 8 months ago

Yah. :D

- 3 years, 8 months ago

Mine is 1023ong, I haven't been on recently but if I get a chance you'll know who I am!

- 3 years, 8 months ago

Does anyone want to get on with me now? I should be done with Samwise's bothering for now.

- 3 years, 8 months ago

- 3 years, 8 months ago

poweroftwo.

- 3 years, 8 months ago

Close game bro!

- 3 years, 8 months ago

Guys, I'm rubikmania98. I just started playing FTW. Please don't hate (wat).

- 3 years, 8 months ago

Who's going to hate on you? :P

- 3 years, 8 months ago

I don't know, just have this feeling.

- 3 years, 8 months ago

I haven't activated my account yet :(

- 3 years, 8 months ago

I'm AnonymousBunny. Although I'm not online in AoPS most of the time, you can add me, I'll play if I have time.

- 3 years, 8 months ago

Is it free?. Also are any Indians interested as time zones vary

- 3 years, 8 months ago

There are lots (i mean LOTS)

- 3 years, 7 months ago

- 3 years, 8 months ago

Mine's SHARKYKESA. BTW, since you have computers in Middle Earth, I suppose you also have websites and sonic screwdrivers?

- 3 years, 8 months ago

Websites, yes. Sonic screwdrivers, I don't think Gandalf has thought of yet.

- 3 years, 8 months ago

(sorry if it isn't my place to say this, but I'm pretty sure that finn's username is FINNN)

- 3 years, 8 months ago

Yes it is.

- 3 years, 8 months ago

I'm HYP135peppers on AoPS. I don't go on FTW that often, but I am starting to go on a little more often now that I have a little more free time on me.

- 3 years, 8 months ago

Hi HYP

- 3 years, 7 months ago

Wait waaaaaaat HYP you have a brilliant account?

I'm bobthesmartypants...

- 3 years, 8 months ago

Yep. I saw on your siggy "hayyyy reached 1000 followers on brilliant.org" and I clicked on the link following it and was like WHAT. Before I did this, I had no idea that there was a connection between the amazingly smart Daniel Liu on Brilliant to the amazingly smart bobthesmartypants on AoPS. Anyways glhf at nats :)

- 3 years, 8 months ago

why can't I do any comments other than Hello, game anyone? ??

- 3 years, 8 months ago

You have to play 30 games before you are free to comment. I've played 14 (I started Friday) and it's really annoying, but I guess I'll just have to wait.

- 3 years, 8 months ago

Ok, I feel kinda sorry for my opponents that I can't chat anything haha...

- 3 years, 8 months ago

Is there anyone here jisawesome?

- 3 years, 8 months ago

my name is YanYau, count me in

- 3 years, 8 months ago

just saying i am in a really boring art class where we are required to draw our hands without looking at our drawing so i am not that concentrated in my games

- 3 years, 8 months ago

Epic!

- 3 years, 8 months ago

Friended you.

- 3 years, 8 months ago

Is Trevor B. Iamteehee? he said "banana" once... :P

- 3 years, 8 months ago

Please explain the association between me and bananas, other than the fact that my dog is obsessed with them (which I think I've said before).

The only food related question I can remember was the one I released yesterday about Attack on Titan and the Riemann zeta function.

My actual account name is Eridan.

- 3 years, 8 months ago

You said "Banana" on the reshares post (171 reshares) by finn. Iamteehee is famed for banana.

- 3 years, 8 months ago

Oh yeah... That's right. Funny.

@Daniel Liu I can't talk yet. 20 games to go.

- 3 years, 8 months ago

No, he's Eridan. But I've seen lameteehee all over the place. :D

- 3 years, 8 months ago

No he most likely isn't. He didn't have an AoPS account when I asked back a while ago.

- 3 years, 8 months ago

I was playing yesterday (and my rating went up 100 to the mid 1400s, somehow) and someone thought I was a person who had gotten a really high rating and was using a second account. That was funny. I'm finally able to chat now, though.

Maybe I should have done Mathcounts when I was young enough to...

- 3 years, 8 months ago

It's Eridan.

- 3 years, 8 months ago

log on to FTW now? :3

- 3 years, 8 months ago

My apologies for leaving early, but since Finn left, I want to see if we can get a game with most of the Brilliantics in it. From the looks of it, Yan Yau, Finn, you, Pranav, Anish, and Minimario are all on. I have to go for a while, hopefully you'll still be there!

- 3 years, 8 months ago

Huh, minimario is more active in AoPS than Brilliant. Also which pranav?

- 3 years, 8 months ago

Hai; I challenge all of you to guess my AoPS Username

- 3 years, 8 months ago

minimario

- 3 years, 8 months ago

Pranavkrishna. I thought it was Pranav Arora, never mind.

- 3 years, 8 months ago

BTW, I do have an AOPS account but I haven't used it in a long time.
