    no one else tried to get a pony - just me, PLOP, shees, and Druff?

    you guys are missing out, itís only going to get bigger

    top shot is cool and itís fun to flip moments from packs, but zed run actually has real utility

    and itís fun as hell

    Turns out links for all drops tonight were available on Reddit: https://www.reddit.com/r/zedrun/comm...e_later_drops/

    I only discovered this after it was over.

    They're going to have to correct this situation (and make each link unique) for future drops. System was malfunctioning big time because too many people were trying to get on, due to link sharing.

    I ended up with two Z6, one female, one male. At least I think I got two. One I have for sure, the other it charged my WETH but I don't have yet.

    A third one attempted to charge, but failed somehow, and looks like I didn't get. Error was on their end, but them's the breaks.

    The system didn't work well, though, and required tons of refreshing and rapid re-clicking to get anything done.

    My first horse: https://zed.run/racehorse/21784

    Second is "requested" but it took my WETH so I assume I'm getting it.

    You can look up any horse here: https://zed.run/roster

    My second horse absolutely doesn't show up. I assume he's in some kind of purgatory because they processed my payment but haven't given him to me yet. How does Zed Run not have people working around the clock on this? Seems like they just got up and went home. Sad!

    Let's hope they don't fuck this up, Top Shot style. I'm already seeing the signs of incompetence and mismanagement. On the bright side, this is more fun and more interesting than Top Shot, so it may have more of a future.

    Here's the one I bought, but somehow the payment processing got an error, and it was awarded to someone else: https://zed.run/racehorse/21987

    Anyway I hope I wake up to see I have my second horse, and I can start breeding.

    PLOP and I have agreed in theory to breed a horse for Willie, as a thank you for his assistance here. That is, provided I get that 2nd horse which is male.

    I didn't predict last year that I'd be breeding with a gay banned PFA user, but here we are.

    if you could have landed a z10 for $130ish you could have sold it on opensea today for about $1k

    if you could have bought a z5 for $3800, you could sell it for about $8k

    and those numbers are before breeding and selling your offspring or stud fees you might make

    pfa members, you need to get in on these drops - it's like some of you hate free money

    Anecdotal, but from what I saw today, the Z9-Z10 were suuuuuuuuper hard to get because everyone with a few hundred $ to scratch together was competing for them.

    I decided to put more effort into targeting Z6 because there were fewer people with the $1500 or so needed for them.

    Z9/10 seem to have the best instant sale profit margin though.

    that seemed to be the case, the cheap horses were gone within seconds whereas I luckily got PLOP's z5 after a minute or two

    although a z9 or 10 can bring you the best ROI today, the lower genesis horses are more scarce and will command a lot of $ in the future

    and a z5 or z6 can make more money just from breeding than a z9/10 can sell for

    I would like all of you to meet "Unhand Me", a colt who will be breeding with Babb Stables' other horse, "Tiquero".

    Unhand Me: https://zed.run/racehorse/24623

    Tiquero: https://zed.run/racehorse/21784

    Both Z6 Finneys.

    Unhand Me will also be breeding with PLOP's horse, which is a Z5 Finney.

    A scandal already brewing. Apparently the mobile version worked way better than the desktop (the reverse of what is typical in situations like these), and people with mobile were able to load up on horses quickly, while the desktop versions were all freezing at the beginning of each drop.

    This would explain why the Z9 and Z10 vanished so quickly, and why it seemed nearly impossible to get one. I'm guessing that mobile people who caught this chose to load up quickly on the high-ROI horses they coudl afford with their existing WETH balance, rather than blowing it all on 1-3 more expensive horses.

    https://twitter.com/#!/x/status/1391006801974501377




    Honestly this entire drop was mismanaged, and not just in hindsight. It's baffling to me that they didn't:

    1) Make each link specific to each account, so sharing wouldn't help

    2) Put a hard cap on number of horses one could purchase in the drop

    3) Make sure the system is properly stress tested, including by ensuring mobile and desktop had the same performance

    everyone was sharing links so i have no real problem with that

    my biggest gripe is that a lot of these whales bought out all the z9 & 10's (just look at the screenshot), making it harder for newbies to get a foot in the door

    there should really be some restrictions on amount of each z level you can purchase during a drop

    now there's an even larger barrier to entry for people wanting to get involved because they have to buy these horses on secondary markets for $1k+, instead of $120

    I've just been reliably informed that the proper strategy is to seriously inbreed your horses.

    What kind of game is this?!

    Makes sense. Through selection and inbreeding you can develop the traits you want and since they are just electrons you get none of the nasty consequences of inbreeding real organisms.

    COMMENCE THE FUCKFEST DRUFF
