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

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).

I got flood muted for the second time

David Lee - 3 years, 3 months ago

Log in to reply

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).

btw what is your username David Lee?

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 :)

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.

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

David Lee - 3 years, 5 months ago

Log in to reply

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.

Trevor B. - 3 years, 5 months ago

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

David Lee - 3 years, 5 months ago

@David Lee Oh yeah... That's right. Funny.

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

Trevor B. - 3 years, 5 months ago

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

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

Daniel Liu - 3 years, 5 months ago

Log in to reply

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...

Trevor B. - 3 years, 5 months ago

It's Eridan.

Daniel Liu - 3 years, 5 months ago

@Daniel Liu 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!

Trevor B. - 3 years, 5 months ago

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