CCC #1 - Hunt down the stragglers! - UNTIL 26.12.2021


Recommended Posts

Hello Skylords, Skyladies and other Skybeings; and welcome to CCC #1 - the very first Crappy Community Contest!
 

 

THE CONTEST HAS ENDED.
To see the winners, scroll down below. If you are just here to grab the booster code, there you go:  CRAP-YCMN-TYCO-NTES
 

 

 

What are “Crappy Community Contests”?
This and future CCCs are meant to be super-small-scale contests with weird challenges, hopefully luring you away from well-trodden paths. They are small scale on the organizers side too: there will not be a stream, video or event announcing the winners. What's special about this contest is a participation price for the whole community.
 

What, when, where, how?

There are no special rules for this contest besides one:
rPVE 1 (Map of the Month) - Fastest time wins 

1708969788_BanditsCCC1.png.689a6490d2702232af44e8f2881d1a5d.png

Small groups of bandits escaped from the rPVE9 contest. Kill them fast! 

 

The contest has started already! Submit your replay of your fastest rPVE 1 1-Player MotM run through Discord (DM to Kapo#0116, please include your IGN) or the Skylords Forum (DM to Kapo) until 26.12. 23:59:59 (= 7 days time total).

You can submit multiple times, but only your fastest one will count. Please note that the Top 3 Replays will be posted here in the forums.
You can find your replays here: Documents=>Battleforge=>replays
 

What's the prize pool?
Since this is not just a Crappy Contest, but a Crappy Community Contest, you may earn a price for the whole Community. If we reach more than 30 participants (unique players, not entries), you will unlock a Mini-Booster code for the whole Skylords Community. If more than 50 participants enter, it will be upgraded to a Booster instead of a Mini-Booster. So tell your fellow Skylords to do a quick run, rPVE 1 is less than three minutes but it raises our chances to hand out a code for everybody. 
 

The fastest skylords will get small prices too, sponsored by myself and other skylords:

1st place               1000 bfp + Easter Egg + Bandit Minefield + Nether Warp (G)
2nd place              500 bfp + Wheel of Gifts + Matter Mastery (G) + Grinder P
3rd place               250 bfp + Worldbreaker Gun + Rogan Kayle + Grinder P
4rd place               100 bfp + Church of Negation + Bandit Sniper + Grinder R
5rd place               100 bfp + Home Soil  + Bloodhorn (R) + Grinder R
6rd place               100 bfp + Battleship + Matter Mastery (G)
7rd place               100 bfp + Ashbone Pyro + Cultist Master
8rd place               75 bfp + Cultist Master + Ravenheart
9th place                50 bfp + Corsair + Ravenheart
10th place              50 bfp + Ravenheart + Plague
11th place              Crystal Fiend (G) + Aggressor G
12th place              Plague + Frost Crystal
13th place              Amii Paladins + Mountain Rowdy P
14th place              Amii Paladins + Coldsnap +
15th place              Soulhunter B + Soulhunter P
16th place              4 Crystals (Dark/Flame/...) and 2  Amii Phantoms as a Consolation Prize 😉

Upper 50%             Split share of 3000 BFP
Lower 50%             One random Skylord in the lower half recieves Enlightenment, another one Rageflame (B), another one Amii Monument.
Last Place               Juice Tank (x4)

In the unlikely case of a tie, the run that has been submitted earlier gets the higher placement in the ranks.

If one or more mighty Skylords decides to sponsor this event, please contact me, I would be more than happy to upgrade the price pool. My special thanks to the SR Team for supporting a community prize idea. Also a big thanks to the following Skylords for sponsoring cards and/or BFP:

THE_BIG_WET     Easter Egg Promo
CrazyCockerell    Bandit Sniper
Ultralord             500 BFP + Crystals
Dutchy                3000 BFP + Ashbone Pyro, Cultist Master, Home Soil, Battleship, Worldbreaker Gun, Bandit Minefield, Corsair (G), Bloodhorn (R),
                           Crystal Fiend (G), Matter Mastery (G), Rogan Kayle
Worgrimm          Amii Monument
Sanguiris             Rageflame B, Nether Warp (G), Church of Negation, Matter Mastery G, Ravenheart (x4), Grinder P (x2), Grinder R (x2), Cultist Master, Plague, Mountain Rowdy P, Frost Crystal, Soulhunter P, Soulhunter B, Aggressor G, Aggressor B, Amii Paladins (x2), Amii Phantom (x2)
Anonymous        Wheel of Gifts, Coldsnap, Plague
Anonymous 2     Enlightenment
Damo                 4 Juice Tanks specifically for the last Place

In conclusion
My hope is to start off a series of CCCs with very different ideas and themes, to explore the possibilities of small scale contests that don't take weeks to prepare and execute. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.

Best regards,

Kapo

The contest recieved some donations from generous Skylords, so the price pool has been updated.

Edit: I am baffled by the amount of additional donations I recieved, and instead of giving everything to the "Top" I added a random draw of two really good cards for the lower half of entries - that seemed more appropriate for a community contest.

Hello again Skylords, Skyladies and other Skybeings; The contest is over, and it's time to announce the winners!

But first, I’d like to thank everyone for making the Crappy Community Contest happen - no matter in what way: participation, sponsoring prizes, spreading the word or helping me to organize it. I received so much support and even more nice words - maybe a small apology for the amount of crappy advertisements is also in order 😉

In total, we reached a total number of 130 participants, more than double of our goal. Thanks to the Skylords Team for sponsoring the code CRAP-YCMN-TYCO-NTES

 

Here are the fastest Skylords of the CCC #1:

1st place          01:27.4       arabika
2nd place         01:28.0       Damo
3rd place          01:29.5       Hirooo
4th place          01:30.4       RadicalX
5th place          01:32.5       Treim
6th place          01:34.6       Dolewan
7th place          01:36.4       THE_BIG_WET
8th place          01:39.7       Dutchy
9th place          01:41.5       _empty_
10th place        01:42.1       Hiko
11th place        01:44.5       Bini_Inibitor
12th place        01:45.4       Wanky
13th place        01:46.3       batika
14th place        01:47.5       Zorgok
15th place        01:48.4       Relictook
16th place        01:48.5       SylarXXI

Upper 50% share: The split share of the 3000 bfp is only 46 BFP each - the high number of participants takes its toll here.

Lower 50% draw:
Draw 1      DeityExcalibur           Enlightenment
Draw 2      Endimion                  Amii Monument
Draw 3      Karl_Marx                 Rageflame (B)

I will send you the prizes as soon as possible through ingame mail.

 

Replays and Strategy

Here are the replays of the Top-3 entries - copy them into your Replay folder to watch them:

CCC1_01-27-4_arabikaa.pmv CCC1_01-28-0_Damo.pmv CCC1_01-29_5_Hirooo.pmv

For those who just want to quickly know how the time is achieved without watching, here is a short description: 

Spoiler

 

299572895_CCC-1SmallSunderer-.png.507f76ad9e8dce33c0422c20a6dbe40a.png

The fastest times are achieved with a Sunderer start and very exact Mine placements. To keep the two brutes from stunning the Sunderer, a Sunstrider is sacrificed to keep them busy while the Mine kills them. Though this all seems to be quite straightforward and simple - don't underestimate the number of tries and precision needed to pull off a time under 01:40, or even 01:30.

 


With this new knowledge, if you want to try for yourself, please remember that the Map of the Month gets switched pretty soon.

 

In conclusion

Thanks again to all who helped to make this happen. What I can tell so far is that the series will continue, CCC-2 has already been discussed with the Event Managers - but before that my guess is that we will see some other contests/events.

If you have a crappy idea for future CCC's you may share and discuss that with me, maybe you can host your own Crappy Contest! Feel free to contact me. If you want to discuss or host any other kind of contest, contact our Event Managers Hiko and/or Metagross. They are super supportive and will help you to organize your own event!

Dear Skylords,

I just sent out all the prizes - and want to mention again that those came from very generous Skylords sponsoring the Event.  When sending them out, I noticed that I forgot to add an Aggressor (B) into the prize pool, so I put him into the Consolation Prize (16th).

This concludes all business around the first Crappy Community Contest. If you have any feedback around the event, feel free to chat me up or write me a note.

K.

Is there a complete list of all timings? I want to know where i ranked. Since everyone knows his time you can even ananymize the list. Would be interessting. Ty 🙂

I didnt openly post the full list because some of the more casual participants would not be comfortable with it.

But I can post a total list of entries just of the times (without the tenths, I had to use a tool for that one by one), and since you know your own time you can see how you ranked in the field. I might note that there is an additional Entry of someone getting as close as possible to the lose-condition of 15:00, but the entry of 14:58 isnt in the list - that Skylord also submitted a "real" entry.

Additionally I'd like to mention that those 9/10-minute entries are Only-Tower-no-Unit  entries.

So, there you go:
