I'm assuming my submitted solutions were incorrect. Or is it that the winner will be announced at the closing of the "window"?


Mine too...?

Further connections for the phrase "skip five" that make me believe we're looking for Tau: each user with an email has their # correspond to the number in the backwards alphabet, by skipping _005 you look are skipping upsilon and on to tau (who's bio says "you must know me by my return"). What are we supposed to tell tau, he's never online.

Well... I see that the U2U's I've sent haven't been checked... so either the "real" Time traveller will check U2U's, and the wrong ones just have the U2U's rot in their box for all of eternity, or the Traveller just hasn't checked his box yet.

4 days left in the game and no one else care?

apathy at it's finest, dare I ask if a second failed game may be the last?

Just seeing if anyone else has yet to give up.

I wish I had more time to play around with all the clues. From what I can figure, they are talking about one of the new xbox 360 games. There is a new one out called timeshift. There is also dreamfall, and a new tomb raider. Ive been checking out the new modern combat one as well, but mostly because my hubby would love it.

from what I followed in this, is this supposed timetraveler doesn't seem to care much about any of the people from this time. If he had something important (that's if it's not a game) he would have told someone.

So my conclusion, don't give a $%% about it. The guy is an arrogant basterd, so why treat him differently and give him all the attention he wants.

Just my ramblings

Stand united

Here I am with the final announcment. All that have been paying attention, take heed.

APR. 2006
A DEADLY VIRUS HAS MADE LANDFALL IN THE UNITED KINGDOM, THE START OF WHAT IS GOING TO BE A LONG AND DANGEROUS PATH FOR HUMANITY
In the years to come nations must unite to fight this and other worldwide threats. The human species will face its demise if countries maintain this aloof attitude to one-another.

Please pay heed to these warnings.
I know them not because I travel time, but because I am time itself. And I can offer this knowledge because of that.


To those who wish it, refer to next post.

Ok... I'm confused. The first post by atled looks like a clue, then atled posts the events and such in the next one, seeming as though he is a plyer in the game, and not part of it. His profile also suggests this. So what is the first post of him? A clue posted somewhere else, but reposted here? Or an actual clue from atled??

To quote John Titor:


"Balloons in balloons in balloons..........."






Personally I am confused beyong confusion at this juncture

I havent been following this game too closely but if you look at atled's profile it says he's not part of this game.

Not sure if that helps at all.

Well, I suppose I'm out of this. I'm not sure what everyone else did, but I didn't fair to well with working out those clues. There are currently 2:20 hours remaining until April finishes according to GMT. Good luck to anyone else!

I wont have access to a computer until 10 hours after the deadline, so as you can imagine I'm not very happy.

Welp, got me. I hope they tell us when it is all over. Going by atled, and the greek letters, you would think we would be looking for Chronos, but you got me. Then atled says he/she is not part of the game? Too confused here. Looks like time is up. Oh well, was fun, but took too much......time.

My guess is a little different than atled's. I agree that I thought we might be looking for a post or connection to chrono/s. Anyways just wanted to post it.

One of the things I submitted was this:


You said name your events:

Sars pandemic (Jan 2004)
Palestine Elections (Feb 2004)
Madrid Bombings (March 2004)
Nick Berg (May 2004)
Hurricane Charley (Aug 2004)
Katrina/New Orleans (Aug 2005)
Abu Ghraib (April 2004)
2004 elections (Nov 2004)
London Underground Bombings (July 2005)
Tsunami (Dec 2004)

You spoke of returning once a tragedy had been avoided, which I believe is the attack on Sears Tower (April 19, 2004) that has been averted.


I sent that when he said when i return, name my avents... and that if he did return, it meant that another big thing had been avoided. Going from posts from ISP and such, I concluded it was the Sears tower thing. But seeing as how none of the U2U's and such I sent were read, I probably didn't have this or any other solutions correct.

I guess we just wait now until we get an announcement.

The prize was not claimed in this game.

We will be retaining the X-Box 360 prize for a new game or event that will start soon after we move to the new servers.

The final solution for this puzzle game ended up being harder than expected, even though members expertly blazed through the early clues. As a consolation, there will be more than one prize associated with the next official ATS game.

Stay tuned.

S.O., are you saying that after all that time we put into this, and all the "stuff" leading up to it in the begining, and we dont get to know what the answer was



posted on May, 1 2006 @ 08:14 AM

We may extend this game based on what is currently "in play" with an alternative solution... revealing the expected solution would not be appropriate at this time.

Oh god. That just HURTS.

So is this game, with all the established clues and such, going to be incorporated into the next game you were talking about? All I want to know is the answer! Bugger winning an xbox, I just have to know the answer to all these confusing riddles!


oh, ahh, btw, will this transition to the new servers take much time? How long is ATS going to be offline? A few minutes at the most I would hope . . .
