Contest is over, SauronDark wins.

 

 

I am "officially leaving" as you may have read here: http://forums.teamex...e-long-goodbye/

 

So I'm giving away 3m for whoever cracks this first (and keeping the rest for the future in case I do come back to harass people).

 

118 297 24 720 264 4 50 678 493 145 15 1048 460 207 266 996 13 176

 

Shouldn't be too hard, I think. If you've got it, you will know; the answer isn't nonsense. First person to post the answer along with how they arrived at it gets 3m ingame money.

 

 

 

Added 10/9/17:

Hints:

- Context is important

- It is a phrase and it is related to TE -- if you're not sure of your answer then you probably don't have it right.

- You guys are overthinking it... I used one of the oldest tricks in the book.

 

Added 10/10/17:

More hints:

- CONTEXT IS IMPORTANT. Go read the initial post again.

- Each number corresponds to 1 character, so the answer is an 18-character phrase.

- It is NOT Islands in the Stream, as much as I like that phrase.

 

I really expected someone to win it already within a few hours of the initial post. It's not "hard"; you'll be facepalming when the answer comes out.

 

Also, be more specific when explaining the answer. Explain each number separately, if applicable, or use one number as an example and perform all of the "math" on it to explain.

 

Added 10/11/17:

C'mon guys :V I don't know how you guys haven't gotten it yet. I even got paranoid that I encrypted it wrong (because I did it by hand) so I got another staff to check and even wrote a script to check it, because no one has posted the correct answer yet.

 

I did find an error when I double-checked though... I can't say the reason for the error until someone gives the correct answer, but for now, DO NOT INCLUDE THE LAST NUMBER. It's not that necessary anyway. Everything else is correct. So what you're looking for now is a 17-character phrase. This means that the "new" code is:

 

118 297 24 720 264 4 50 678 493 145 15 1048 460 207 266 996 13

 

New hints:

- I'm starting to run out of hints I can give without simply giving it away...

- Each number corresponds to a character and the same math is applied to the number, given the correct context.

- You will not get anywhere if you look at the numbers alone. Context is important.

 

Added in the wee morning hours of 10/12/17:

More hints for plebs:

- No coding is necessary

- A calculator is not useful

- A text editor is useful

- Stop thinking about fancy ciphers and think about Halloween and witches and Count Dracula and Lazy Sour Pumpkins.

- I love to confuse people with hints

I think you guys are overthinking this. Maybe I made it TOO easy, because I just used the first encoding scheme that came to my mind.

176 mean [Spoiler] Number 176 is a message from your angels that you are to be commended for the actions you have taken or will be taking shortly and the work you have been doing in your day to day life. It is a message that you have been manifesting successfully and your desires are becoming reality. You have achieved balance between your spiritual life with your material world, and in turn you are reaping benefits and taking care of your mind, body and soul. This will be positively reflected in all areas of your life. Your angels ask you to keep a positive attitude and high expectations to keep up the flow of abundance.
I feel this ^ will be wrong answer xD

Can we have some clues like, is it all letters or contain spaces, numbers or punctuations?

 

The encoding scheme might have been one of the many simple coding scheme, if you even have used 2 methods, then its a lot more possiblity.. can we have clue xD

No clues please at least for 24 hours as it kills the fun.
And people, posting here your opinions on encoding will only give clues to others.
