Official Monthly Challenge for January
Brought to you by DoomYoshi and the Community Team


Some of you might remember a series of Unofficial Challenges that I (DoomYoshi) organized in early 2013.
You may also have seen that we have a brand new Challenge Medal (click that link and scroll all the way to the bottom).
Those two facts are, believe it or not, related - I have been asked to run Official Monthly Challenges patterned on those unofficial challenges, and anyone who meets an Official Challenge will receive a Challenge Medal!

NO SIGN-UPS REQUIRED - Everyone is eligible!
All you need to do is play in at least one game started between January 1 and January 31 with the following settings:



Settings
Map: King of the Mountains
Players per game: 3-10 [3 or more; 10 or less]
Game Type: ANY TYPE
Initial Troops: Automatic OR Manual
Play Order: Sequential or Freestyle
Spoils: Escalating
Reinforcements: any reinforcement type
Special Gameplay: MUST HAVE TRENCH; Fog of War is
optional

Round Length: Casual or speed

Medal Criteria
To win a Challenge Medal, players must score 500 points in games with
the above criteria.

Terminator Games will be scored as follows:
30 Points for a kill
10 Point for being the last surviving player
10 Points per game played
Standard games are scored the same way, except all kills go to the
winning player

Assassin Games are:
10 for joining
25 points for each player defeated
7 extra points for winning
-50 points for eliminating the wrong player

4p dubs is 60 for winners; 10 for each player on the losing team
6p dubs is 90 for winners; 10 for each player on the losing team
8p dubs is 120 for winners; 10 for each player on the losing team
10p dubs is 150 for winners; 10 for each player on the losing team
A quads victory scores 55 for each winning player, 10 for each player on the losing team
6-player trips is 53 for each winner, 10 for each player on the losing team
9-player trips is 83 for winner, 10 for each player on the losing team

Notes


No fancy story this time.

------------------------------------------------

The settings that must be present are King of the Mountains, Trench, Escalating, 3-10 Players
Please double check and make sure you have all these settings set. The other settings are open. Round Limits are not mandatory, but are recommended to make sure all games finish on time.

Games can finish up to one week after the end of the month.

You don't want to create a new thread for each challenge for every month? Down the road month 5 or so the thread will be extremely long it could get confusing for people to figure out what is going on.

I don't know that there's really much to figure out - the challenge will always be in the first post, and it's not like we're going to be looking through the thread for people's games.

I don't mean confusing for the admin team I mean confusing for people that may want to participate in the monthly challenge or find out more about what it is all about.

For example, if someone has a question in March about the monthly tournament they may not know where to start searching to see if there question has already been answered. If there is a thread for each monthly challenge there is a more finite number of pages that they would need to check in on and see what people are talking about regarding the specific challenge.

Another advantage to a separate thread is for people that are creating games or looking for people to join games towards the challenge. Again a finite number of pages with one thread per monthly challenge will make it easier for people to be able to use that to the best of their ability.

It also might get more attention since a new announcement goes towards the top of the list. As the time goes on the thread topic will slowly move down the list in the announcement forum as new announcements go above it.

Yeah, furthermore, with new challenges being pasted over the old ones, the records of the old ones will not be archived anywhere, and the medals will soon be meaningless. When you get a medal for winning the "Big Knockers and Fast Bikers" tournament, or whatever, you can go back and look at the tournament thread and see exactly what the tournament involved. But with this, how will you go back after winning the medal for the Scotland challenge and see what it was for? You will see "won the Scotland Challenge" or "Won the December 2013 Challenge" and there will be no way to look up and see exactly what the terms of that challenge were.

Both of these concerns are addressed in the posts following the OP. There is a FAQ post, and a Past Challenges post.

There is going to be a problem in that this thread will gradually fall further down the announcements forum as new threads are posted.

Except for this time? ;)

Is there an advantage to keeping everything in one thread that I am missing? Just curious.

Also there is still the issue of people not knowing where discussion pertaining to a certain months challenge starts and stops when the thread will keep growing in posts. Look how many pages you have and it has only been through 1 month.

If I come into the forums and find this thread in the middle of March and want to see where all of the discussion for the March challenge started I feel it would be more convenient to go to the second post and start reading discussion about that challenge then try to guess through the pages where it starts by checking dates of posts.

The scoring for team games is such that the expected value when you join an 8p game is the same no matter what the settings are (except assassin which is worth less).

In 8p dubs you have a 25% chance of winning 120 points and a 75% chance of winning 10 points, for a total expected points of 37.5.
In 8p standard, you have a 12.5% chance of winning 230 points and a 87.5% chance of scoring 10 points for a total expected points of 37.5.

Good thing you caught that I messed up the numbers.

Going to fix it now.
