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.

Site Event Medals are awarded to the top three finishers on the challenge scoreboard.
UPDATE MEDAL IMAGES


In addition to the medals, 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 groovysmurf.

I really like the map, but I wished you'd picked a bit more original settings.

Poly(4), quad and FFA 8 players escalating are so common.

Some 12 players triple/quad, 8 players dub, freestyle double etc..

Escalating is the most common and imho enjoyable settings on this maps, and fit perfectly a monthly challenge (=, fast games), but the rest of settings could have been more original, or more open.

Why restrict so much what kind of games fit in the challenge btw ? Like poly(4) escalating chained -> could let the kind of fort open so people can do parachute/unlimited/adjacent at least.

I would also like to make a complaint.

In the above picture, we can't really see the penguins very well and they are very small. We really do need better pictures of penguins and a few of different varieties too. I'm very upset about this.

They’ve done that before on Antarctica challenges on different settings and what not before. It’s nice to have a variety instead of always doing random stuff or repeating the same thing over and over.

The reason for sticking to escalating for this one was because we were also introducing the new escalating medals. For instance, when we introduced the new zombie medals, we used all zombie settings as well. I agree more variety is best. In hindsight, perhaps we should have done different reinforcements.

Regarding the penguins, they were not willing to sign the appropriate waivers so we were unable to show their faces.

also we need freestyle as an option on the 8 players game to make them fair, other wise if there like 15 games all same players in same order and then the player after the dumb player will win in almost everyone. I mean could invite the same 8 players to tons of games and put 1 bad player at the end so I play after him in every game so I win them :roll:

Maybe that was unclear in my message, but I wasn't complaining about the choice of escalating spoils, more the rest of the settings.
Thanks for the response.

Yeah. In hindsight, those should have been more varied, for sure.

I did not get credit for winning this game Game 20980076...Its a Tribes game, but it meets the criteria for the monthly challenge so I would think it would count (besides I didn't pick the settings lol).

In that case there could be a problem with the way the search links is written.

There isn't a problem with the links in this thread. BW's links include private games. I informed him of this a few months ago and he said there is no need to change. Just use the links I provide or when you click the links from the event page, select "public" yourself.

And yes, that game does not count. It just happened to be the map/settings I selected to play in the tribal challenge. Sorry for any confusion.
