    It appreas that Dr. Myrick mostly enjoys two things: Spending $3.45 at Piko Espresso Bar and placing sport bets. Since none of the names of coffee beverages worked, I looked at the winning and loosing bets she placed and tried to match it up with a team always winning or loosing. I am starting with basketball, since she shopped at Basketball Apparel Canada at least once... Still, no luck so far.

    Anyone at least know if capitalization is important?

    Added personal hints and some guidelines. Thanks to agent @Anuschka who made the thread in the first place.

    Use this thread to discuss theories and keep track of clues and hints.
    Also, please post here the link to any document (or similar) created to cooperate on the mission.
    Meanwhile I'll try to keep this post updated with useful info and hints.
    Note: It's recomended to download all images and files in order to work with less difficulty.

    Part 1
    Keep in mind the theme of the previous mission when looking at the document
    This time the sport is not hockey
    If you look at the sports bets there is one spcial day
    That day her favourite team won in the NBA league
    That team is based in Texas
    The name of the team is the intranet password

    Pretty sure i read somewhere that answers are not cap sensitive, but I'm not 100% positive.

    it is a little deeper than simply a basketball or coffee but you might be on the right course

    I can nudge, I just don't know how much you want a nudge here

    Personally, I wouldn't mind the nudge (knowing that people have already solved it always take a bit of the suspense out of it for me, I guess...). As long as it is under a spoiler-tag, everyone can then decide whether to read it or not. :p

    And still following the same hint...
    Anyone with any experience in sports bets knows what kind of "game" you have to play in order to get 200% of your wager in case of a win? So far, I always thought how much you get depends on how all the other people have bet on the same game - i.e. if you were the only one to believe that team A would win, everbody else believed it would be team B, you get a lot. But Dr. Myrick regularly got 50 $ for her wins...

    Look for a sport that plays during the dates she bet, find a team that won/lost during a few of those dates, no need to over complicate it.
    Though it has nothing to do with the answer for this particular part, for anyone that was involved in the live mission, added bonus or perhaps to throw people off, Pikolo gets some of their coffee from Portland, OR.

    For you Anuschka

    You are on the right track. Double check your dates and remember that the big money is in the most known league. Also, remember to relook at what might be the password according to the guide in the client

    I blew through 1-6 in 2 hours and was stuck a week+ waiting for more. So I'm pretending I cannot access #8 yet. Though they are getting harder and taking more and more time (depending) to solve/complete, I dont want to end up waiting for more content. Understanding early access and development take time, I see no rush. I've been trying to get the admins at Raptr to add TBW to their database for game tracking, but so far no dice :(

    From what I understand, it will always be this way. We get a bunch of puzzles, we get live events and there is the hidden puzzles.
