icon The Bar Lottery (+4)  
Riddle Me This: At what click number will the bar stop at?

Post your exact guesses here, and the closest guess to the final count, without being over, will receive 20 rank points and 50 mod points. (Just clarifying, as it took me a while to work out my own wording: your guess needs to be under the final stopping point of the bar. If the bar stops at 373456, for instance, a guess of 373457 loses while a guess of 373455 wins. Sorry for the confusing wording.)

You only get one guess, and guesses submitted one week before TCB comes out won't count. This'll be retroactive.

I think it should be guesses don't count after 90% or something like that.

Guess: 280000

I'm shooting for 306,411. You still have a chance, but it ain't looking good. *Ducks*

Kidding aside, I'm betting on 404,403 myself.

I thought about that, but what if it sits on 92% for a month? The bar is an indication, and a lot can happen in a short amount of time at the end of development.

You wait until it's released, then ignore any guesses made in the previous week. So people like me who are holding off are taking a risk that our guess won't be counted.
