Yesterday a week had gone by since we introduced the new weekly scores. There has been massive activity all week with players competing to get on that list - some players have spent up to 18 hours a day cleaning birds! We love the positive response to the new scores.
We are happy to announce our first winner - Dean!
The competition was fierce. When there were about 3 hours left, Dean had to leave and Sami was very close (a little over 300 birds behind). But Dean prevailed and when the first scores were tallied he was crowned our first Weekly Bird Cleaning Champion.
Dean cleaned close to 4500 birds in a week!
A very close second was Sami with 4176 and Justin with 2673 birds. Mandi K and Wennie were not far behind. Well done everyone!
Tau rewards were given out accordingly (see last week’s blog).
We also updated the game with two new badges just in time for the count and reset of the scores. There are badges for Champion and Top 10.
Interview with the First Winner
After all this effort we interviewed Dean so here’s his five minutes of super fame.
Congrats on being the first person to win the Weekly bird leaderboards!
What was your winning strategy?
- To sit on a bird lot and let it fill up with birds, then clean like mad and repeat.
How did you get all the birds you needed?
- Sit on a lot that I own till it was full, plus hit all bird lots i could find!
We noticed you were cleaning together with your competitors over at Mandi’s place - that’s pretty cool instead of everyone sitting on their own lots cleaning. Why did you end up going to the same lot to clean the birds?
- It makes it more enjoyable to clean together even when we were all going for the same price.
What do you think about the bird cleaning scores, did it make the game more fun? Do you enjoy there being a competitive part to the game?
- The scores are fun and it was enjoyable competitive game, would like to see it stay and have others added in the future.
What other weekly scores would you like to see, besides the bird cleaning?
- Maybe a rare tree score, potted plant, or a treadmill score.
What are you going to do with the grand prize of 500 tau? Let me guess, cat food?
- For this week ya cat food lol
What keeps you coming back to play TirNua - what’s your favorite part of the game?
- Friends around the world keeps me coming back, friends and competing for number 1.
Finally … Did you burn out or are you going to keep cleaning birds next week?
- No, I’m not burned out - I’ll still keep cleaning when I can. Going to be hard these next two weeks… I have finals.
Congrats again Dean and everyone else who got on the list this week! Sound off in the comments if you have suggestions or feedback on the scores, or want to give Dean a shout out!
