Consider it Sunk - Magpie IX - Tops & Tokens Competition Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote



If you haven't already watched the video...IT'S BLOCKADE TIME!!!

And now presenting Consider it Sunk's TOPS & TOKENS COMPETITION. for today's blockade at Magpie (check out our intent to defend post here.

View the LIVE Leaderboard and Rules list here. (We have set up some examples of how the leaderboards would be displayed, these will be wiped an hour before the blockade begins).

CiS have always paid tops and tokens in all of our blockades, but today we are taking it one step further in order to identify who really are the best puzzlers on the ocean.

During the blockade, each XO on each ship - every full segment - will be submitting the names of the Tops and Tokens for each station (whilst still paying out the previously advertised 4k per segment) via an online form which immediately updates a LIVE leaderboard, viewable for all throughout the blockade.



It will also separate each of the stations so you can identify how you are doing on your assigned/chosen puzzle. (Sails, Rigs, Carp, Patching, Bilging, Gunning - most guns).



Now, to the fun bit - PRIZES!

At the end of the blockade, the leaderboards will show the winners for each station and the overall winners, and each will win the following prizes:

Overall Tops
1st Place: Tan Octopus
2nd Place: Banana Sea Turtle
3rd Place: Smuggler War Brig
4th Place: Banana Seal
5th Place: Harvest Cutter

Overall Tokens
1st Place: Tan Octopus
2nd Place: Banana Sea Turtle
3rd Place: Smuggler War Brig
4th Place: Banana Seal
5th Place: Harvest Cutter

If you come top of the leaderboard for your specific station (prizes are for both tops and tokens, separately), then you win a cash prize of 100k, unless you are sailing and then you have a choice between a cash prize of 300k or a Tan Spider, donated by Geologist (who has challenged anybody to beat him!).

Of course, we have come up with an list of rules to make sure everybody knows what happens during ties, ship sinks etc. These can be viewed here.



We hope that you enjoy participating in the competition and we look forward to seeing you later today!

The leaderboard standings can be viewed here: https://bit.ly/2IeXEIr

We have taken down the initial link in order to further optimize the back-end processes, and number-crunching stuff.
