    1,490 I got robbed on Hanover, and Mt. Cube, and got weak points. I got a bunch of zeros for flat out guessing as well, so I guess I earned my score.

    The better analogy would be playing with a zero dollar payout. Last I heard, no one is paying cash money for surviving Coronavirus. All you get is bragging rights.

    It didn't seem to, but it was loud, and 15 feet away, so I guess it could have. Was on the floor rather than a surface where the vibration would be more obvious.
