The Crushing Debacles of June

Some battles are really close. Many are so close they are essentially inconclusive. Others are decisive victories, but the losing army manages to retreat in good order and pulls itself back together somewhere down the line. And then, there are those monstrous, crushing defeats from which there is no coming back -- defeats so totally cataclysmic, so utterly ruinous, that it seems as if Woden himself has strapped on a pair of steel-toed boots and is stomping on your nation's gonads.

This month's challenge focuses on three of the most decisive beat-downs in military history, three knockout punches so brutal and hard that the loser never really got back up again.

WARNING! Read the rules completely before joining any games.

THE RULES
One win is all it takes for a medal, BUT, you may only make one attempt on each map. That's right. One attempt at each map, or three total. These are cataclysmic defeats from which empires did not recover. Neither will you. Once you lose, you've lost all hope forever. On that map, anyway. Join a second game on the same map and you've just disqualified yourself on that map.

Sometimes we have spam-a-thons where you can play hundreds of games to qualify. This month, you cannot. This is a choose carefully, play your best, and accept when you're defeated kind of Challenge.

Because we know that people have unavoidable commitments to Tourney, Clan, Tribe, or Usergroup games, none of those will count. Only games in the public pool are available for this Challenge. Any games with these settings started as a "random map" will also not count this month.

JOIN A MAXIMUM OF ONE GAME ON EACH OF THE DESIGNATED MAPS!

Medal Criteria
One Gold, Silver, or Bronze token is sufficient to complete this Challenge and qualify for the Challenge Achievement medal.
In other words, one win = CA medal.

  • Gold Token - Waterloo Win: +25 points
  • Silver Token - Oceania Win: +22 points
  • Bronze Token - WWII Eastern Front Win: +20 points
    ------------------------------
  • Orange Token - Waterloo Join: -1 for first one, -75 for the second.
  • Blue Token - Oceania Join: -1 for first one, -75 for the second.
  • Red Token - WWII Eastern Front Join: -1 for first one, -75 for the second.

FAQs:

Who can play a Challenge?
Challenges are open to everyone!

How do I join?
No signups required. Join and/or create games that meet the given parameters for this month as found in the OP. Only public games count towards the challenge unless otherwise explicitly stated in the challenge OP. There is also a "join games" link in the OP to provide an easy list of qualifying games.

What are the prizes?
All players who meet or exceed the minimum number of required points for the month will earn a Challenge Achievement Medal. The point requirements change every month as we aim to provide a vast assortment of challenges which includes a varying level of difficulty.
Image
In addition to the CA medal, the first place finisher receives: 1 Green Conquer Star
Image
And the 2nd-5th place finishers receive: 1 Blue Conquer Star
Image

When do I get my prize?
My goal is always to award prizes during the week following the completion of the event.

How do we deal with deadbeating?
Please report deadbeats in your games by sending me a PM. I will periodically do a random check however I cannot monitor every game. We will evaluate the distribution of prizes to a violating player on a case by case basis.

Tiebreakers?
Ties are awarded to the player who reached the point threshold first.

A player has me foed and it is preventing me from joining a lot of challenge games. What can I do?
PM the player in question. Be courteous and non-accusatory, ask why you are foed. Do your best to resolve any issues with the other user in this manner. However, if they decided not to remove you from their foe list then you will need to join games without that player or start your own.

What if I want to run a parallel tournament to the challenge?
Okay, awesome! Individual tournaments can be added to the challenges so that those games drop tokens. Send me a PM and we will get it added for the month.

Rulings:
1. Deadbeats will have entry points stripped.
2. Wins by round limit will drop tokens.
3. Inventory relating to the challenge will vanish at the end of the year.
4. Bot games do not drop tokens.
5. Any unforeseen abuse is still abuse. Don't take advantage of the system.

If you have any further questions or issues not covered here please either post in the active challenge thread or PM CatchersMitt14.

Great idea - but it already seems a few have not read the rules, if you search the Oceania available games...you could award points for the most negative score ;)

Dope idea - but I thought at first I had read that you needed to win 3 games in order to earn the medal. Each of the 3 single tries you joined. And I was like, woah, now that's a ballsy challenge. THAT would be total victory. Maybe a special prize should be considered for one who should happen to master this feat. But as it is, cool stuff man. I'm freemium at the moment and merkin fools with all I got for my own Imperial Dragoons empire but when that frees up I'll give this one a go.

The only worry I see (and not for myself) is that you seem to state that only one game can be played on Waterloo etc. this month by any one person. What if someone just feels like... playing more? For fun? I guess they would just have to dedicate the month to it or find games with 5 or less players. Meh.

Good luck out there young conquerors.

Yeah, I very much had freemiums in mind when planning this. Most Challenges require too many games for freemiums to realistically hope to achieve them. Which is okay, of course. Gives you another reason to upgrade. Still, at least once a year or maybe twice, we're hoping to have a challenge that freemies can complete.

my goal is to get the most negative points. seems kind of silly to have an entire monthly challenge that is geared towards people who do not financially support the site. imho

Another way to look at it, having a couple challenges a year where it is truly realistic for a freemium player to succeed could also peak their interest in the challenges so perhaps the next month they decided to buy premium in order to continue participating in the challenges.

You are to join the games yourself for the monthly challenges. Use the links found in the OP. No one can "put you in."

Your choice. Like I always say, the point of the challenges is to challenge yourself. If you're no good with the settings that's a good reason to try.

A fair number of freemiums eventually become premium. There are also people who have been premium for many years in the past and have let their premium lapse because the only play occassionally now. Even some of the biggest names of the past -- conquerors, tournament organizers, key volunteers, etc. -- and freemie now. Also, if nothing else, freemiums help to fill games that otherwise would take much longer to fill.

The site's survival depends on premiums, of course, but freemies also have a role to play in keeping things lively and vibrant. Obviously the vast majority of tournaments and challenges are premium-only, but it doesn't hurt to include others at least once in a while.

As final point, I would like to say that the "one chance only and winner takes all" is a valid concept in and of itself, even if the players' status was not an issue. My goal, as always, is to vary the types of Challenges available and use the widest variety of concepts possible.

Your choice. Like I always say, the point of the challenges is to challenge yourself. If you're no good with the settings that's a good reason to try.

or instead of making it a whole month give them a week to join as many games for free. wonder how many "freemiums" actually pay to play because of a tournament like this. my guess is 0.

A fair number of freemiums eventually become premium. There are also people who have been premium for many years in the past and have let their premium lapse because the only play occassionally now. Even some of the biggest names of the past -- conquerors, tournament organizers, key volunteers, etc. -- and freemie now. Also, if nothing else, freemiums help to fill games that otherwise would take much longer to fill.

The site's survival depends on premiums, of course, but freemies also have a role to play in keeping things lively and vibrant. Obviously the vast majority of tournaments and challenges are premium-only, but it doesn't hurt to include others at least once in a while.

As final point, I would like to say that the "one chance only and winner takes all" is a valid concept in and of itself, even if the players' status was not an issue. My goal, as always, is to vary the types of Challenges available and use the widest variety of concepts possible.


I have reached the pt. were I would foe you to keep from targeting and wrecking games I am in. :evil: if I choose to participate in this.

That's good to hear. It always help to have players who keep joining games.
