    Default The Total Guess Competition - Rules, Leaderboard & Commentary



    The Total Guess - info & rules
    What's The Total Guess Competition?

    - It's a brand new competition created specifically to reward those who are regular players of the various Guess/Name/Identify games around TWC.

    How does it work?

    - Each correct answer is worth a Competition Point; when a member reaches a specific amount of points (15 for Bronze, 30 for Silver and 60 for Gold), the related medal will be awarded (see below in Rules for more details).

    - The Gaming Staff will take care of registering every valid Competition Point in a Leaderboard post and will request Hex to assign any medal which is due.

    - The registration of new Competition Points will be carried out every week or so.

    Which games are included in the Competition?

    - Below is the list of the games included. The list might be modified in time, depending on the feedback of the membership; new games might be included as well.

    Name that historical event
    Identify that Tank/Ship/Plane/Artillery etc
    Name that historical figure!
    Name that battle!
    Guess Where?
    The Catchphrase game
    Guess the movie from the picture

    The Rules

    - The mechanics of those games request the guesser to take the next turn and post a new image/question for the game to move on; for this reason, a Competition Point will be assigned only if the member has got the correct answer and has then posted a new image/question for the next turn.

    - The Competition is not retroactive; Competition Points will be registered starting from day one of this new Competition.

    The Total Guess Competition Medal (AKA the Guesser's Medal)

    Bronze - Awarded for earning fifteen points in TTGC Competition. Awarded members will also receive 5 rep points.

    Silver - Awarded for earning thirty points in TTGC Competition. Awarded members will also receive 10 rep points.

    Gold - Awarded for earning sixty points in TTGC Competition. Awarded members will also receive 20 rep points.

    Master Guesser - Awarded for earning sixty points in one single game of those included the TTGC Competition. Awarded members will also receive 50 rep points.

    Eye of Knowledge - Awarded for earning one hundred and twenty points in the TTGC Competition. Awarded members will also receive 50 rep points.

    NOTICE: the Master Guesser medal will come with a customized reasoning, depending on what game the member earned 60 or more points in total, as per the list below:

    Linguist: - Catchphrase
    Explorer: - Guess Where?
    Archivist: - Historical Event
    Paparazzo: - Historical Figure
    Strategist: - Battles
    Tactician: - Planes, Tanks, Artillery
    Critic: Guess the Movie

    And we are live!

    chesser2538 will take care of registering the Competition Points from now on and I will take care of any Admin action as usual.

    Please read the rules before submitting ideas, suggestions, critics and whatnot!

    Will this apply retroactively or does the count start from now on forwards?

    Few things. First of all, what does TTGC stand for?
    If its "The Total Guess Competition", then it doesn't make sense to say the TTGC since you're saying "the the".
    You could retroactively pretend it stands for "TotalWarCenter Total Guess Competition" I guess =P

    Secondly, how are the leaderboards going to work?
    If you're listing every single victory by every single person (which you seem to be doing atm), its going to be cluttered as hell. Eg in the Gold Medal category you're going to have 60+ lines PER winner.
    Also if you are going to do this, it'd be kinda cool to link both the question and the answer. Eg

    King Athelstan - 2nd Point
    Question = Answer

    To link the specific post you click the little number at the top right of that post, eg this is Post 6 of this thread.

    Anyways, just my opinion, I don't really think its feasible to link every single victory in the leaderboards. If you do want to do that, it'd probably be best to make seperate leaderboards for each competition with the order being chronologically rather than alphabetically. Eg

    Name that historical event leaderboards
    General Brewster
    Abdülmecid I
    King Athelstan
    Abdülmecid I

    Just my thoughts. Good luck chesser.

    How about a little badge for someone who scored points in all the competitions?

    Not really, nothing prevents you from gaining 60 points in just few of the possible competitions...

    ah you mean something extra? that could be a possibility, though is not likely to happen, in particular because it's highly probable that new games will be added to the list over time; I'll take notice of the idea, though, thanks for letting me know!

    Just to mention, King Athelstan is the first one to get a TGC medal, so congrats to him for his Bronze!

    Due to the various issues happening with the software upgrade, the update of competition points is on hold for the time being; you can still play the various games and competitions points are still valid, it is only a matter of a later update with regards to the leaderboard and possible new medals.

    Another quick update, new medals will be delivered soon, in order to not to lose the trend; the leaderboard will be updated as soon as editing/posting will be back to normality

    Congrats on King-Athelstan for his Silver Medal and on chesser2538, paleologos & Sar1n for their Bronze Medals!
