    Since we have a venting thread I thought maybe we can have one to talk about the good random toons we played with. I'm pretty sure you can name toons if it is in a good way. I'll start.

    Thanks to Madame Keirnan, Tornado, and Trixie MacRoni in the DA today. You ladies were awesome! It was the fastest, most pleasant, DA that I have done in a long time. It flowed seemlessly and we worked great together. Everyone knew what gag to throw when and whose turn it was to sound, drop or trap. The funny speedchat we came up with just made it even better. Thanks to a great, didn't know it was possible, DA!:thumbup1:
  2. Good idea! I think we did this before somewhere. I would love to thank the 3 toons I did my last DA with for a very easy run. This was the first run in a very long time that there hasnt been massive problems. Quick and easy and MAN I needed it to be!! I was at the point of forgetting law altogether for now because my on-line friends list is empty since the baby black cats were born!! LOL. You three made my day!!! Thanks!!:thumbup1:

    edit: Names of toons: Coconut, Cool Dee Dee Sparklepretzel, and Jonathan
  3. Thanks to a cat named Zirus for, many months ago, taking baby Thunderhead through a bullion mint when she only had ele. More thanks to Zirus for being generally nice whenever Thundy ran into him subsequent to that. :thumbup1:

    Dear Deputy Snifflebrains & Miss Melody Snorklenoodle,

    Rather than stand around and wait for a 4th for a middle 6, you said, "Let's go!". I don't like assuming randoms know what they're doing, but I hate waiting, so i agreed. What an awesome display of teamwork, even though the puzzles were keeping us lopsided on the fog. I'd definitely go with the two of you again. Even though one of you was lureless. lol.

    Dear Zappy, the 120 laff horse in the CEO tonight: Thanks so much for uniting me not once but twice! You are awesome and one of the nicest toons I've come across. I felt so bad when I saw you done to 4 laff and I couldn't reciprocate. Thankfully we made it through. Thanks again!

    Dear Quacker Jax (yellow duck in nr vp),

    I've played with you so many times as Squeaker but that was my first trip with McSgt. Thank you! The first set of cogs was uneventful - sure most of us were a little small but a pretty good team I thought. Then the skel round came... We listened helplessly as the other side went sad. :( Then they turned their attention to us. We did lose one just as you threw a tu unite, but you saved the remaining two. After that, a lure unite, wedding cake, and geiser - we all safely ran back to the playground.

    You are awesome! Thank you for restoring my faith in others!

    Today, in NR/TTC (Welcome Valley)
    Tall orange cat named Chester, 65 laff, toonupless/lureless (maxed throw), doodle named Buck.

    I needed a few beans so I hopped into the trolley. He hopped on and stayed in the trolley with me until I maxed my purse (I was nearly on zero). Was fun and even got a group perfect on the ring game.

    So a definite thanks to him and if you happen to see him, be nice. :)
  8. Dear Granny Jellyroll,

    You are the most awesome friend!! Thank you so much for throwing that unite in the DA to save me from counting my toes in the playground. I can't believe how quickly my laff went down when that sound missed and then the cogs just attacked again without letting us choose a gag!! And they all went for me!! I owe you one bigtime!! I was resigned to going sad. It was so far past my bedtime that I never even thought of using a unite but you were right there for me!!!! Thanks again!! You Rock!!!!:thumbup1:

    Sally B

    PS....thanks also for the fun we had just goofing around afterward.......but we wont go there!! (Really, Pinky is a bad influence!!!)LOL

    Fangs McWolf Guest

    Pinky is fun. I have her as an sf on Black Prince. :)
  10. LOL susan.....you had a bad night last night. Poor Susan, whom I always stand back and let do the running skull puzzle, tripped every one of them. I don't think there was this much spit on my monitor in a long time. I LMAO for the whole DA!

    I would like to thank all the toons on stratics who are always helpful and always willing to help out another fellow stratics player.

    There are so many randoms that are helpful, many more than there are evil ones. BTW, when is that Meow Meow gonna get kicked out!

    Also, kudos to Fangs for helping all the new McWolfs. I don't play mine often enough, but whenever you see Raven McWolf you always invite me to come along and help me get a little bigger.

    Forever thanks to my regular running buddies...Susan, Marge, Terri, Aimee, Chelle, Steve, Josh (when he ever plays anymore), oh man I know I'm forgetting some toons....sorry, this is like when I accpeted my Oscar....LOL!

    I try to help the weakest McWolf's first, to try to help them get stronger and more independent. As a McWolf gets stronger, I tend to help them less and focus on other McWolf's that are lower laff.

    The idea behind it is that with lower laff, it's soooo much harder to do some of the tasks, even with others who are of equal or slightly higher laff. So I like to get players to a point where they can do things on their own a bit easier and then back off. Since most (if not all) players have higher laff toons that they've worked before, they have an idea on how to play. But at the same time, don't want to carry someone so much that they forget the importance of knowing their own limitations.

  12. Ok now!!! LOL I DID trip a few puzzles last night....just a few!! Something about knowingly running directly into a skull thinking it was safe!!! But in my defense, 2 nights in a row I was up til the wee hours of the morning after having crazy full days that started at the crack of dawn. Oh and who was with me???? HMMM??? Oh thats right, a little pinky duckie!! Lets do one more she says!! But really, when I almost went sad it was because sound missed in one of the sets, the cogs attacked twice, AND I was sleeping when I ran the red lights so my laff was like 80 to start. We should get the story straight though, and I'm sure Marge will agree, I was very efficient at tripping the minesweeper puzzle last night too (not including the one I tripped thru you). I almost NEVER trip that one!!! Its a good thing you guys like me so much!!

    THE funniest part of the evening was when I refused to do the other skull puzzle and you said jokingly "watch this" fully intending to just run up and trip the stupid puzzle (I mean, why not? Susan will just trip it anyway!!) and you end up solving it!!!! Now THAT was funny!! Then of course you cant forget me saying I'm done with the puzzles and refusing to do another one (I HAD no more level 7s) only to coach you from 15 ft back which one was safe and of course I tripped the puzzle through you!!! Guess that is what 4 hours of sleep will do to you.

    Only 13 more DAs to go!!! How many puzzles is that????? Maybe I dont want to know. (You will find me waiting by the door or standing in the corner for all 13!!!):sad3: You guys can do the puzzles, I will stand in the corner planning more presents for Josh!!!!:thumbup1:
  13. Mwahaha! Great rebuttal and I will agree, in your defense, you were extremely tired. I guess it's better than falling asleep while playing. Ahem...ummmm....cough cough! I will still rely on you for those running skulls, and yeah, that was totally a *fluke* that I got that one.
  14. Well, if I remember correctly, I did fall asleep on you once too!! I think we were in a bldg or something and I fell asleep and almost missed the elevator. I cant remember, I was asleep. Guess I am talented in numerous ways, huh?rolleyes: I think you are referring to the time you fell asleep waiting for an invasion?? LOL

    i had the most pleasant surprise in tt in a long time tonight. :D

    i had had to bail on a 5st (gags missed too much early on), and as i restarted it with my 3 toons, a random hopped on. i figured i was in for it, but i am very very happy to report i was wrong. :D

    the toon's name is quacksalot and when we played he was a 116. he's a small yellow duck (shortest combo i think), and was a total sweetheart.

    he helped me gag train through the whole of the building. waited for a new invasion when one ended, lured for my traps, used small gags so my duck could work her drop, and even waited till last to get on the elevator (bowing when my last toon got on even!!!!).

    quacksalot, if you read this, i want to thank you again for all the help. you are a sweetheart. :D thank you so much again for being so helpful to toons you didn't even know. i hope to run across you again. :D

    considering my duck just started in brrrgh, shouldn't you have included hazard pay? :D

    i don't think there would be enough beans in all their banks combined to pay that though. lol

    Lawnchanee McWolf and Trapper McWolf would like to thank another black cat called Salem who pitched in to our battle on the street in Donald's Dreamland. Excellent teamwork!! Thanks, Dude!
  19. Trapper McWolf sends a shoutout to moonlight mcboo for the spontaneous jellybean unite in front of the trolley in DDK! Thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  20. Granjell

    Granjell Guest

    Thanks Wikid McWolf and Violet Purplegrooven for helping Lawnchanee with so many buildings yesterday. Thanks to you I'll actually get trap one of these days.
  21. Trapper and Werr McWolf give a shoutout to a lureless red monkey named Billie for taking them through the factory, even after having seen laff and gags (or lack thereof). And also for doing a short run and not even waiting for an invasion when you needed the big 5500! :hug:
  22. Too true! :lol:
  23. Granjell

    Granjell Guest

    Faith and Lawnchanee McWolf would like to send a "thank you, thank you" to some nice toons who went through a late night Factory with us. Crazy Bebop Lemonzapper and Lady Boo Boo helped us both work trap and lure, since Faith has no sound yet, cheerfully and even creatively!! You ladies rock!!
  24. M.T. Head

    M.T. Head Guest

    To Sir Z.Z. and Midnight( twin black cat 87 & 88 laffer)...thank you for such a good display of teamwork even with the lack of gags back at the buillion mint. Ducktor Heart and her friend , Spirit Bear appreciates it so much :)!
  25. Squeaker

    Squeaker Guest

    After many days of him being the nicest toon - I have to give a shout out to a toon named Black Ice, 129 black cat (one of many of his toons that I've met). We are randoms to each other, yet whenever we run into each other - quite often I might add - he goes out of his way to help me. He pulls me into a street battle to see what we could work on together and off we go. After this week of glitchers and griefers, playing with someone like him keeps the game fun!
  26. Thanks to Lucky C and Granny Cuddles for a most enjoyable factory! We had fun playing around with SpeedChat while waiting ten minutes for an invasion to begin. I hope to play with the two of you again!

    Does anyone know this toon? He (or she) has helped me so much in the past week or so and it's starting to drive me a little insane that I don't know who it is! If they want to remain nameless, of course, there's nothing I can do about it.... Anyway, Black Ice (129 black cat): Sarcatstic (106 black cat): Red (130 red cat): Lemontoes (130 yellow cat)

    Anyone have a clue? I don't. ;)

    Thank you so much! I thought I was losing my mind - noone knew who I was talking about. :D

    Granjell Guest

    A Million Thanks to a purple cat 105 laff named Reggie who escorted Lawnchanee through a coin mint to finish her 30 loan sharks task. No one else seemed to be around and we ended up on a level with no barrels at all. Reggie was a great partner for a two toon run, and kept up positive speedchat throughout! Yay Reggie!!

  33. Shoutout to uber named Ace of Spades...
    This is rather sad- three VPs with me and you went sad three times.
    I feel just awful.
    And for the last one, we were even on the same side, for the first time all morning. But we had a stupid cat with us (thanks, cat!) who HAD gags and DIDN'T use them. If he had, I could've lured and you might have made it.
    So please, all Stratics toons, if ever you come across Ace of Spades, take a second to whisper a "You rock!"
    He deserves it.
    Update: On the fourth run, we made it! For Bessie, too!
    Humongous thank-you to:
    Atta Control (a 36-laff uber)
    Colonel Cricket Crunchenburger
    Ebony Kitty
    Lucid Dream
    Sir Ricky Frecklewhip
    and of course Ace of Spades himself.

    Glad to see Ace of Spades made it through! I've been on two vp's with him where he's gone sad in skel round. He's always cheerful though and says good luck. A very nice person.
  35. My second shoutout of the day is to the same Sam that I VP'd with earlier.
    Hello there, Sam! Just wanted to let you know- your inexplicable and unexplained cries of "Moo," "Dear diary," "Moo milk," "Potato," "Moo opera," "Moo said the potato chip" (obviously combining "moo" and "potato"), "Aang the last air bender," and "thomas the tank engine" made the whole bullion worthwhile.
    And thanks for offering to help me and a friend out in another mint (even though you logged out as soon as we finished).
    Hope to see you around! I'll come prepared for our meeting, bearing a plate full of milk-flavored potato chips in the shape of mini Thomas the Tank Engine diaries, Air Benders, and Opera Singer gags.

    Here's a shout out to two friendly cats, one pink and one black, with whom we had an enjoyable Factory just now.

    Stuckina Tree - congrats on your big toon reaching 135 laff

    Night Winged - thanks for saying McWolf's all seem to be nice

    You guys were polite and friendly and generally nice players. Thanks!
