NEWBIESPLAYGROUND Unreal Contest 2017

DATE: 29th of July to 13th of August 2017 - SinglePlayer Contest
DATE: 29th of July to 13th of August 2017 - Coop Contest



Hello and best wishes to all Unreal players!

NEWBIESPLAYGROUND has again organised its special SinglePlayer and Coop Contest for 2017. We would like to take this opportunity to invite all players to participate in this contest. Like last year, the SinglePlayer and Coop event will be seperate and players are encouraged to participate in both events.

The following maps will be used:


SinglePlayer Contest


  • Dark (Dark Arena)
  • Noork (Noork's Elbow)
  • Skybase (Outpost 3J)
  • NaliC (Nali Castle)



Coop Contest


  • L97Soledad_Yoe16 (Spawning Pools of Droth)
  • Terraniux
  • MPDuskfalls (Edge of Na Pali)
  • MPEldora (The Eldora Well)
  • MPCrashsite1 (UMS Prometheus)
  • MPSpireland (Spire Valley)
  • MPNagomi (Nagomi Passage)
  • MPFoundry (Foundry Tarydium Plant)
  • MPAbyss (Gala's Peak)



There a few minor updates to the rules, compared to last year (most notably the new GiantGasbag implementation) and we encourage all players to read the rules section to acquaint themselves fully with the rules.

Servers are available for online practice now, prior to the start of the contest on July 29th.

For all the detailed information and scoreboard, see: UNREAL CONTEST 2017

WOOF!

For the singleplayer contest: Can't one time it in NaliC so that one barely in time reaches the exit after killing as many as possible spawned gasbags? (or is their spawn count limited somehow?). Could sort of get pretty odd having to do that, to get a rather high score.

This situation was carefully considered when writing the rules for this year. Since a GiantGasBag spawns small GasBags with random delays, the total number of mobs available during the overall time limit (including 15 minute overtime) is also random, that implies that the contest would be mostly a lottery if all kills were counted. So, it was decided that the player (in a single-player match) or the team (in a team match) gets +1 to score for eliminating the whole family consisting of the GiantGasBag and all its children. While at least one member of the family remains alive, elimination of any other member of the family does not change the score. This principle is described in clauses 1.4 and 1.5 of the rules.

I've got a confirmation that the contest is over, so La Seleccion Confederada consisting of ||={·E·}=||TommY, |>>|·(E)·|<<|LuC4$O!, and |=(>>-E-<<)=|ThErIs officially becomes the winning team. Congratulations, guys! You showed a flawless game and nobody even dared to try to beat your result.
