I posted a while back mentioning I made it into the mob but lost on a Michael Jackson trivia question. Since then, I've played maybe 45 minutes of the live show and no extended play.
I pop in tonight and the game in progress ends with a guy taking 3000pts. As the next round starts I see a familiar avatar on the screen and a gamerscore that looks like mine. Sure enough I got to be The One. I ended up after five or so questions at the 800 pt mark and had already used my Ask the Crowd (it was a booze question and I don't drink, which also makes me wonder why a 13+ game is asking questions for a 21+ crowd). Then a question from the heavens pops up:
Which film beat Star Wars for the Best Picture Oscar:
A crapload of the mob didn't know it and I shot up to the 5000pt. mark. I figured that question was a sign I should take the money and run, which I did. All in all, I'm amazed at having a chance at being in the mob and the One, despite rarely playing since the first two weeks of beta, but now I honestly have no reason to try the game again. Well that's enough bragging, now I have to wait 4+6 weeks to get my points.
"I assure you, whatever the others promise to do, when it comes to the showdown, they won't be there."
