    Can you solve this riddle?

    Hello everyone,

    My friend tasked me with creating an implicit riddle in Microsoft Paint, with no instructions further than simply showing him the image and seeing if he can solve it. So, MMO-Champ Fun Stuff people, I'm letting you all give it a dry-run and tell me what you think!

    Here's the picture, good luck:



    If you have guesses, put them in those censored boxes or the ones you have to hit "Show" to see or whatever as to not spoil it for others.

    well you did not label your X axis.

    also all I see is a graph. I have no idea where to start.

    What are the things in the corner? Why is Moore's Law listed twice on the graph? (Hint: Think Phonetically) What does that all say about the presence of the "2"s on the graph?

    I just don't know where to start. I see 2's, moores law, a graph, processor names, and what looks like morse code.

    I'm not a computer guy...What am I looking for? Wtf is Moore's Law.

    OH WAIT MY FRIEND TOLD ME ONCE. Is he the guy who said that every 2 or 1.5 or 10 years or some shit something will double?

    What are those things in top left corner? Seriously help me out I'm not a computer guy.

    Out of curiosity, how do you do that?

    Edit: Nvm figured it out.

    The morse code doesn't look complete or doesn't really make sense.

    OT: The doppler/doubler effect?

    the whole thing makes it seem like you need to know a lot about computers, in addition you have no obvious start point.

    The morse code in the upper left hand corner states "This is distraction and clue". Moore's law states that the number of transistors used doubles every 2 years. Not sure what they have to do with each other. Thats all I've been able to figure out.

    Correct so far. Keep going.

    ok so you need to know Morse code and laws about transistors to solve this? fun.

    It's very abstract. Look for things you can't see.

    Two Moore's Laws + Morse Code = Tumor's code... It's not a tumor... Arnold Schwarzenegger... Governator... You want more Governators.

    this is the original image:
    Because I want to say this every single day but don't want it to get a drag:
    1) The ingame store will only sell timesaver items. It won't affect balance.
    2) No, getting to 100 in half the time isn't pay2win. raids don't start until the second week, everyone has time to get there.
    4) getting charms faster is also not pay2win. getting those is easy, but not everyone has the time or want for dailies.

    Bored at work and this has been bugging me, enough to register to maybe get things moving again :P
    Morse/Moore's sound similar. The 2's are nicely [I]squared [/I]in their boxes, and under the line (underlined?)

    Random abstract guess:
    Tremors 2: Aftershock. Works, sort of, if I could figure out anything particularly shocking about either a 386 or 1985

    The answer's 15.

    the 2's are supposed to show the number of transistors per box in their respective state? What I mean is that where the 2's are now, they are enclosed by the 10000-100000 boxes, thus the whole boxes encase a maximum number of 100000. If you divide this number by the number of years a box is encased of (5), you get 20000 (see the 2?). I have no clue what else to come up with, this makes no sense to me This solution was really sought out

    Maybe his friend was the one that gave him the riddle and hes trying to use MMO-C to solve it for him!
