September '23 Monthly Challenge

Official Monthly Challenge for September 2023

Brought to you by the Community Team.


The Great Kantō Earthquake

Image

100 years ago, on September 1st, 1923, the island of Honshu in Japan was devastated by the worst earthquake in that nation's history. The devastation from the estimated 7.9 magnitude earthquake was compounded by a firestorm, a tsunami, a typhoon, and civil strife culminating in the Kantō Massacre. Altogether the death toll from quake, the fires, the tsunami, the typhoon, and the violence, is estimated between 105,000 and 142,000 dead. Another two million were left homeless. Property damage is estimated at over $1 billion, or about $17 billion in today's terms. It was a greater disaster than the atomic bombs would be two decades later.

September 1st is nowadays marked in Japan as Disaster Prevention Day. Past disasters are remembered, and drills and educational activities are conducted to help prevent or control future disasters.

The map for this month's challenge will obviously be Japan.

There are two ways humankind gets through disasters. At the moment of the disaster, it is purely individual. One must survive, oneself, before anything else. After that, it becomes a community effort -- we must rescue and heal our families, then our neighbours, then the wider community, and all must begin to rebuild.

The settings for this month's challenge reflect that duality. First, you must survive, yourself, alone, in a multitude of others who are also trying to survive. This will be reflected by 12-player Standard games. Zombie spoils will represent the dazed and confused people in the immediate aftermath of the disaster. Second, you must help friends and neighbours. This will be reflected by Doubles games, where you must partner with another.

The larger contribution to score will be the number of Doubles victories -- the number of things you accomplish to help your community. You must win AT LEAST ONE game in the solo category, but there is relatively little reward for winning more than one. (In role-playing terms, once you have proven your ability to survive, there is little advantage to proving it multiple times. You only have one life. It's the lives of others of which you can help a large number.)

Just a reminder that it is strictly against the rules to invite opponents into Challenge games.

Subject: Monthly Challenge FAQs

STARTING WITH AUGUST 2022 CHALLENGE!


NO inviting players to the opposing side in Monthly Challenge games!

We have had way too many instances of people sending multiple invites to low rankers with little map experience on the map being played. These challenges are supposed to be FUN, first and foremost. The games are supposed to all be Publicly joinable games! If you want to play with your friend, simply inform them you have a game up and they can join.

Both groovysmurf and Chanakam2020 will be monitoring, but we can't catch them all! If anyone sees a game with someone invited, please report to us ASAP. Screenshots are always helpful.

Since this is a new rule, we are offering warnings for the first two infractions.

Third infraction bans you from the current monthly challenge.

If it happens again in the next two months, you will be banned for six consecutive monthly challenges!

If any questions, please don't hesitate to ask.

*Addendum added 9/12/22
Sending rematch invites is also against the rules!



It is okay to invite players onto your own team, just not opponents.
