Viridian olympics (looking for feedback)

Okay, So I am looking for people that would be interested in an all puzzle comp (apart from from Poker/Spades/Hearts And Probably TH).

so as stated before I am thinking of doing a all puzzle comp apart from said puzzles through a 3 hour comp? or 2 seperate comps or 3 maybe, this'll be for the crafting/piracy puzzles. And then maybe host a few local tournaments for the parlour games.

An example of the scoring would be:

Lets say 10 people joined this so First place on each crafting/piracy puzzle will recieve 10 points 2nd gets 9 and so on. And for the parlour games the tournaments would be 3/4th play off to split the points better so First would get 10 second would get 9 3rd/4th would get 8,7 and depending on how many people join then everyone that came 5th would get 6 points.

also to spice it up and make sure only serious people are joining I was thinking of having a small wager for it from 20k-100k maybe more if alot of people are interested.

On the wager side of things lets say we have 10 people again wagering 100k each so it'll be a mil One way to break it up would be the following.

1st. 500k
2nd. 250k
3rd 150k
4th. 75k
5th. 25k

So basically I am looking for feedback, I know some people aren't to keen on the parlour games and others are so can people give feedback on that.

Also the settings/time limits and order and what not are up for discusion. Also the time that this will take place.

People interested so far:
1. Vsmeifudare
2. Juice
3. Geologist
4. Ricksan
5. Kebbielebbie
6. Darlie

If you have any ideas/want me to explain further also don't hesitate to find me in game and we can talk about it.

Very interested. How would you set up the competition? or are you referring to bake-offs; if so how will crafting be formatted?

Re: Viridian olympics (looking for feedback)

No i'd have to work with apollo to set up a competition or 2 or 3 as that is the only way to judge the crafting side of things. But if you want to mix things up we can do a few bake off style things for a few puzzles and leave them out of the comps

Re: Viridian olympics (looking for feedback)

Okay after talking to ricksan in game he is interested and we also thought of a few new ways to do things and mix things up so it isn't just depending on the highest one off incred. So here goes;

1. have 2 puzzles that will be done bake off style (will expand later if people agree and like the idea)

2. Get rid of the parlor part :( you guys need to drink and sf more!.

3. Swabbing a GF and doing a certain puzzle for X amount of Lp's lets say 15 for an example and the Top 3 or so for each LP ( can work out later once again) get 1 point or so.

4. To mix up the crafting part have, a first to Renowned or another rank on an alt in BS (havn't tested so will look into it further if people like the idea). Also note it can't be weave/forage as they rank to quickly and distill/SW/Alch take quite a while to rank as far as I am aware correct me if I am wrong.

5. Split the remaining crafting puzzles into 2. so for example Alch/Forage and Weave/Distill/Sw and have an overall score point bonus so if you come first overall you get an added point bonus.

6. Some sort of dnav race around a section of the ocean (as this will show how quick/slow someone starts and gets their speed up. So porting in a few islands.

Please not most of the puzzles said can and will be changed as I don't want to appear Biased in picking the puzzles so i'd like your input also. And as I said before I can expand all the ideas more and test things out if people like them.

Re: Viridian olympics (looking for feedback)

Sounds so cool! I am in

I've got two questions though,

1) can we use alts
2) would all these be in the same day?

I'd rather you didn't use alts. And no it'll be spread out over a week or two depending on everyones availability
