See you on the competition ladder... hopefully
Your odds, about the same as mine, dismal. Doesn't mean you shouldn't try. And don't worry about the time frame, you've got plenty of time to kill off plenty of Harrys.

If you don't think you can win, then set yourself another goal, like reaching a clevel or dlevel higher than you've ever gone before or killing x number of uniques. The competitions are useful to force you to play races/classes/variants that you've never played before, which will overall probably increase your skill at playing the game.

You make it sound so easy.

Congratulations to the winners - I bow to your achievement.

This competition was never about winning for me - just trying something out I've never done before. I'd say it was fun - but I have to admit - it was pretty frustrating... in between bouts of fun...

Question

Congratulations to the winners.

But I have a few question how you do to not use a lot of turns ?

Do you never rest ? Is there a trick, something to know ? Because, I played and win two levels and use a lot of turn and I didn't catch how to not use a lot of turns.

Any help ?

Me? DON'T waste 1000's of moves in town. Just a little rest, detect objects, pick your fights, stay deep, take a chance every now and then. But then again, I never won anything.

I have written some extensive playing notes in the past in rgra. They were not about O, but the general ideas should apply.
