The Insane XP Competition: Team Edition #2

Hall Of Fame


Welcome to the second team edition of the Insane XP Competition!


What is it about?

Good question! Each day, competitors must earn a certain number of XP. If they fail to do so, they are eliminated. The winners will get their name put on the Insane XP Competition hall of fame!


The rules:

~ Every day, teams are set a specific amount of XP, which they have to earn by the end of the day. Each team member must earn at least half of the XP set.

~ If teams do not earn enough XP, they are eliminated. If one member does not earn enough, the other one stays in. The competition ends when there is one team, or one person left.

~ Up to 30 competitors can join. You have until midnight UTC+12 on Saturday 16th of April to join.

~ When you have finished a task tell me by posting on my stream. Make sure you include an image of your XP chart as well as the time you completed the task. I will be following you anyway, so you can't cheat:)

~ Follow me if you want so you can access my stream quicker.

~ To join, tell me below in the comments section and please specify your timezone (this is important!). You should also include your preferred team number and if you can take a screenshot.

~ You cannot begin a task until you are allowed to. If you finish the task earlier, your work will not be counted!

~ You are allowed to use immersion.

~ You can start each task at 00:00 UTC your time zone.

~ Have a good time, and good luck!

~ Follow the discussion, otherwise you won't see the tasks!


The prizes:

~ Earn 1 lingot each for every day you survive.

~ Earn 1 lingot each if your team is the first to finish a task.

~ The winners will earn 2000 lingots each!

~ Second place will earn 1000 lingots each!

~ Third place will earn 500 lingots each!

Lingot donations for the prizes will be gladly appreciated:)

April 9, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/otsogutxi

Basically, you start the task at midnight when it reaches midnight where you live:) Then you have 24 hours to complete the task:)

Ok!

April 18, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/Tattamin

Okay, just to clarify this: When you write

Earn at least 600XP each!

do you mean each Team or each Team member?

April 20, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/otsogutxi

Each member! It says each

April 20, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/frenchlearner53

Which could mean each team. :-P

April 20, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/otsogutxi

Well I meant to say each person:)

April 20, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/Karadaieva

Thanks for clarifying, I thought so. Please answer this also: What team is considered finishing first? The one that one of the members finishes before everyone else? Or the one that both teammates finish their goals throughout the day and there are no other whole teams finishing before them?

April 20, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/otsogutxi

It depends, the timezone helps with this, but it's basically the team that finishes first, taking into account their timezone:)

April 20, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/frenchlearner53

I figured that out. Now. :-P

April 20, 2016

Sure! Can you take screenshots of your xp circle?

April 10, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/-Sapphira-

I would try, but unfortunately I lost my phone so it's harder to take screenshots on a computer. Hopefully I'll eventually figure it out. ^_^

April 10, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/jrikhal

It's as easy as on a phone: one key or key-combination. ;)
See the Support pages (link "Help" at the bottom of Duo pages) where various questions are answered. This one in particular is answered in the article “How do I take a screenshot?”.

April 10, 2016
