^Thought they were actually robots, because of the whole pully system to get them moving back and forth. I would think if they were people there wouldn't be as much lag time with the whole system.

Just played my first and won. Was easy though cos the other guy just stood there.

 

Hung a few times before that.

 

Oh, Im fighting under the name AlloyFist. In case anyone spots me.

I think that was me that just stood there. Sorry. Haha. I went to go put something away, and I came back and my turn was over. At least it doesn't have 8 hour waits.

I actually got home, rode my unicycle a bit, trying to practice, then played a game, continued practicing until it got dark and now I'm going for game 3 today...I've won twice now, not using the gimpy blue bot tonight...wait, I just spilled the beans!

So the common question I'm seeing pop up: "What's TPR?" and "You think there's people inside the robots?"

Blue seems to be working now, not sure if you have to hit that sweet spot on red in order for it to detect...I got my butt kicked by blue just a little bit ago.

I just lost two times in a row. I don't know why I keep picking blue.

 

Not sure why either I think Red's hit detection's still a bit touchy, as in needing to hit that sweet spot for anything to happen while Blue's an easy target.

 

Got an 88% accuracy, probably my best to date.

 

Just got this uploaded, one of my victories, had my niece record as I played.

 

Update: last match of the night, rematch against Real Art technician! Yes, I won again though the post game froze so no results.

^ I think I played against that guy one time tonight. Kicked my butt.

 

Towards the end for me, it was taking about 25 seconds for the robots to move. And then if the arms decided to move they moved. Hopefully it gets a little better tomorrow. It seems to work best right around 10am when it first opens.

I think I've played about 9 times and won 8 of those... the one I lost was one of the few times I played blue.

I didn't know how addicting this would be! I definitely want to do it again tomorrow!

I giggle to myself every time someone says, "What's TPR?" Even if we answer them, they'll have no idea about the full truth. Explaining just doesn't do it justice!

 

I saw BigMike on there today for a bit too! Happy to chat with him a little.

I'm really enjoying the game, and concept is absolutely superb, but I'm finding myself not becoming quite as "attached" to it as I was The Santa Claw. Not sure if it's the cute characters that I was able to connect with better, or that just looking at the claw for a split second, you know exactly what it is, what it does, and what to expect.

 

With this, I'm still not 100% what I'm looking at, or what I'm controlling.

 

I kinda wish the dunking machine would have had a longer life-span, because I feel like I was able to connect with that a little better as well.

If anyone is having trouble with their results (I.E. telling you that you lost when you won), try clearing your cache. I had this problem and Real Art programmer NICKAE was very helpful and we figured it out.

 

Also, circa71 on twitter (and on the forums) got a shot of Nicole and I fighting on the Real Art control screen.

This is a bit depressing, there's not many playing tonight, feels even less to almost the same as last night. It doesn't seem to be taking off as well as the Santa Claw did. I wonder if not that many really know about it, or don't seem to have that same draw to it like they did with the Claw, as Robb mentioned with his experience. Perhaps they need to throw in the pickles, yeti, wifebeater girl, snowman, boy, and ornament

 

Then again, the GP only seemed to play the claw when they were getting something out of it. After they pulled the plug on actually giving out prizes, the lines took a Sheikra-like drop.

Ahhh that's awesome!! And I've been playing against TPR people and didn't know it

 

I'm not playing much because I'd be on my moms computer, and her computer is slow to begin with and combine that with the lag of the game, I stand no chance. Will play tomorrow though.

@AngryGumball. It was great just playing you! It's fun to see TPR members on other sites

 

I think that there isn't as much draw because of the lack of free prizes for playing a game. To almost everyone free = good. With this game not offering anything free I think that is what is causing the lack of players. I love this game and think its a great idea! Can't wait to face more of you

^Yea, that was a good, close match..no gimpy blue character to fight!

 

This was the first time I ever saw 2x and 3x combos or whatever it said. Cool stuff!

 

What draws me to it is the keeping track of our wins/loses, giving this some meat to chew on. I'm sure that if it was just a matter of play with no achievements or win/loss records, I would probably play only a few times and put it down.

It needs that catchy Santa Claw music!
