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.
1st: Image
2nd: Image
3rd: Image


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?
In most cases prizes are awarded during the week following the completion of the event.

How do we deal with deadbeating?
Please report deadbeats in your games by sending a PM to groovysmurf and chanakam2020. 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, unless indicated otherwise.

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 us a PM and we will get it added for the month. Remember that games that do not complete by the allotted time, will not drop tokens!

Suggestions and Requests
Go here and post if you have any ideas or special requests for future events.

Rulings:
1. Deadbeats will have entry points stripped.
2. NO inviting opponents! (this includes rematch invites) More details can be viewed here.
3. Wins by round limit will drop tokens.
4. Inventory relating to the challenge will vanish at the end of the year.
5. Bot games do not drop tokens.
6. 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 and chanakam2020.

Thanks for all you guys do to make these challenges happen.

I do find this one is screwing with my mind. All games are 4 player. I keep getting confused if I am playing poly 4, dubs or assassin. And then all the games have different settings. Especially ones that are trench and not trench keep messing me up.

Maybe my brain just doesn't work right, or I'm getting, or I have too many active games, but this is really playing with my mind.

Sorry for the dumb question but I've won 'event tokens' but no points. How / when are actual points awarded?

So far you have got 4 bronze token => 8*4 =32 points.
In the scoreboard , point total is displayed only after a player reached goal score (100 for this month) and condition (At least two types of tokens)
For other players score display as zero.

I could see the 'Medal Criteria' explaining the scoring ... but I didn't understand why points weren't tallying up and being displayed.

Thanks for the explanation.

probably another dumb question, sorry ....


So, if I create a game with the correct parameters of one of the 'January Challenge' games, it will count towards the 'Jan. Challenge'? And it will be accessible through the events page links?

Yes, that is correct. If it doesn't appear that means one the settings is incorrect.
