Monthly Challenges:January 2014

Postby DoomYoshi on Sat Nov 30, 2013 4:50 pm

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 65 for each winning player, 10 for each player on the losing team
6-player trips is 63 for each winner, 10 for each player on the losing team
9-player trips is 93 for each 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 can use this code to make sure you get the right games:

Rulings, FAQ and Other Items

Rules
1. No sign-up necessary.
2. Tournament Games do not count
3. If a setting is not clarified, it can be any of the options.
4. Deadbeats do not qualify for entrance points.
5. Wins by Round limit are treated the same way scoring is (i.e. in terminator winning by round limit is the same as killing all the rest of the players.

FAQ
Leehar wrote:Why are quads scored the way they are?


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.

Working Scoreboard for December Challenge
Those who have a medal are sorted by points above. Below are those who didn't quite make it (yet) in alphabetical order. I will do a quick write-up with some of the more interesting medal-winners after everything is finalized.
Every asterisk means a 14-point game. As games finish up, the scoreboard will shuffle. At the end, the order will be determined by points, tiebreakers will then go to most 14-pointers, then to least number of games, then to most games completed in December, then to fastest completed and finally fastest to 28.
The order doesn't actually matter, it's just for pride. If you notice a discrepancy in scoring, you can PM me after the 1st of February but only if a) you are in the top 10 b) the scoring discrepancy would put you in the top 10 c) the scoring discrepancy is the difference between a medal and not.

Not necessary. Any spoils are allowed though. If the game doesn't finish then the points for joining and for any kills are awarded.

Well, would everyone else's medals be held up if a game finishes in June?

EDIT: The best way to do this is being considered. It will probably be technical, but the idea is that the majority of games started in one month will be considered.

DoomYoshi wrote:Only joins, kills and wins that occur in December count. If the game isn't finished in December, there are no points for finishing the game.

Similarly, if the game isn't started in December (but finishes in December), no points are awarded for starting the game.

OP has been edited to clarify this.

So anyone that joins 28 games with those settings automatically gets the medal?

How is it calculated who gets the medal? Do we have to post here or is this done behind the scenes?

Yeah, if there's brackets in the URL, you have to post the &code for open and close bracket instead. I'll look for those and update this post when I find them. Also, you can remove any settings that aren't set from the URL.

Edit: okay, this used to work, but they've really screwed around with the gamefinder URL unfortunately. I know you used to be able to use the &codes for stuff when you were replacing a bracket in a setting. Unfortunately, the settings themselves now appear to have brackets attached to them for no apparent reason.

So formerly, this would come up in tournament names for example when you'd need to replace a tourney name like "[2013] Tournament" with "[2013] Tournament". Unfortunately, I can't get this to work any more. I have a feeling it's because instead of being a restriction (i.e. on the right side of an "=") the brackets now appear in the setting abbreviation themselves (i.e. on the left side of the "="). The alternative explanation is that I'm using the wrong &code.


Edit 2: Use %codes. Replace [ with %5b and ] with %5d and the URL should parse correctly, letting you place a working URL in a URL tag:

I.e.

Code: Select all
[url=www.site.com/find[]=Y&otherstuff]Descriptive Text[/url]


Should be entered as

Code: Select all
[url=www.site.com/find%5b%5d=Y&otherstuff]Descriptive Text[/url]


Edit 3: I took the liberty of making the URL for you. Notice that I removed any unset variables and also removed the userid variable, as I'm assuming that's used to not show games that you are in. If you leave that in there, I suspect that any game that you join may be removed from the search results. I think the new URLs are too clever by half. Not sure why they changed it up.

Code: Select all
www.conquerclub.com/player.php?gs%5b%5d=W&np%5b%5d=5&po%5b%5d=S&ft%5b%5d=O&wf%5b%5d=Y&tw%5b%5d=Y&sg%5b%5d=N&pt%5b%5d=N&submit=Search


Here's a working version of that URL:

It is done behind the scenes. You will automatically get one, although I am thinking we need a No Deadbeat clause.

One advantage of posting game numbers here is that I can check and make sure the settings are good. Your games are, and the link goes to a page where people can join the games you created.

Awesome, thanks!

You could just hand out -1 points for every turn missed (or -5 for a deadbeat game) if you want to avoid spammed games for the medal that aren't played.

[url=www.site.com/find%5b%5d=Y&otherstuff]Descriptive Text[/url]


Edit 3: I took the liberty of making the URL for you. Notice that I removed any unset variables and also removed the userid variable, as I'm assuming that's used to not show games that you are in. If you leave that in there, I suspect that any game that you join may be removed from the search results. I think the new URLs are too clever by half. Not sure why they changed it up.

Code: Select all
www.conquerclub.com/player.php?gs%5b%5d=W&np%5b%5d=5&po%5b%5d=S&ft%5b%5d=O&wf%5b%5d=Y&tw%5b%5d=Y&sg%5b%5d=N&pt%5b%5d=N&submit=Search


Here's a working version of that URL:

This appears to be for all games, not just Scotland

Sorry about that. I did so many attempts that I must've not selected the map in the last one. Oops. Sounds like DY got it handled though.

Is there any way to get this into announcement feed? Right now I am bumping it, as I don't want to lose top billing to the home-page. Oddly enough, I am trying to get onto the home page.
