A Huge and Friendly Competition - 3000+ lingots prize pool
First of all, I'd like to thank Teenage_Polyglot for having such a great idea (which I adapted a little bit), m.tastic for giving me some ideas for the competition, and a big thanks to Maria_Mares, who donated 400 lingots, DetErMinNavn who donated 100 lingots, Anorak13 who donated 200, mrdachshund86 who donated 300 and DelitaRaeWright who donated 100! Since the beginning of the contest we've managed to get 1500 lingots by donations/sign-up fees!
But Mello, how is this gonna be a friendly competition? Good question! There is'nt gonna be a 1st, a 2nd or a 3rd place, the ten first to finish the achievements are going to win the same prize, which is 10% of the total prize pool.
How many lingots has the prize pool? For now it has 1526 lingots (my total stock), as people pay the fee to enter the contest, the prize pool will increase and so the prizes!
So, if the prize pool is at 1600 lingots and you are one of the ten first to finish, you are going to win 160 lingots!!! Wouldn't you like it?
But of course, to win big you have to work hard, it won't be easy to finish, but with hard work you are going to win a lot of lingots and you are going to increase your knowledge, after all, my main goal is to encourage you to learn more! That's why we don't have a 1st place, if you aren't the first one to complete, you won't be discouraged to finish the challenges!
You can take a look at the achievements here. DON'T START NOW! The contest will only begin 01/08 (August 1st)!
To enter all you need to do is to comment down here, I'm gonna answer your post, and you'll pay a 10 lingots fee in my answer. All lingots paid are added to the prize pool!
On July 31, I'm gonna check all users who have joined the competition and I will take note of their currently courses, levels and tiers, to be a fair competition. Even though it's a friendly competition, there's a huge amount of lingots in game, and some people value lingots more than knowledge, so I'm also gonna need links and screenshots to prove you right!
I have the feeling that I'm missing something, but I'm gonna post anyway. Call your friends, call everyone to join this competition, not for the prizes, but for the friendly atmosphere and to learn!
At 07:43 PM (UTC), July 31, this contest has 22 participants and a prize pool of 3277 lingots, resulting in 327 lingots for each winner. Thank you a lot for all the donations!
I would not like to join But I'm cheering on everybody who is. So... GO EVERYBODY!!!! =D
I'll join! This sounds like a lot of fun. How do I send you a screenshot, though?
Welcome! Just press PrtSc in your keyboard and paste it in Paint, then you need to upload in a website like imgur.
Or you can download Lightshot, much easier to take and upload screenshots.
i look at the comments and i see people who are way more prepared for this competition. o.0
I would like to join, but I have a question, do we have to finish all the tasks to win?
I'm talking about this one: Reach tier 3 in immersion (from tier 1). It would take a lot of work haha
aww I can't :( I'm not learning a new language to reach level 10 :( I already reached higher levels in my languages, and doing just the reverse tree now
This can be a obstacle to many people, didn't think of that, you can make it to level 10 on the reverse tree now!
I'll go ahead and stick my neck out. The worst that can happen is that I learn a lot, so why not?
This brilliant. Thanks for doing this. I will give it my best shot.
Add me :-)
I would like to join. I hope that it's not too late. I want to be a part of one more Duo competition before school starts again. :D
I've decided to join. It'll definitely be challenging, but I'll need something to do.
I would love to check the rules. Seems interesting. Could you please please please paste it here? I can't access the pastebin link. I don't know why it keeps saying server not found. :(
I like the uniqueness of this competition. But may I suggest that we could level up 3 times instead of starting 3 new trees or reverse tree (this can be checked easily on our stream) or gather 3000 XP from our current languages (this can be checked on leadership board) instead of starting 3 new ones? Since currently many of us have committed to several languages. I am afraid of new commitments that I can't fulfill.
When will the competition start? As in, what hour will the competition start?
I would like to join. I've been needing to do a lot of practice on some of the courses.
I'll create a topic post and notify all participants on their respective streams, welcome!
When does the contest ends? I would love to participate but it would be easier for me if it ends before the holidays.
The first 10 people to finish the challenges win. Once that is finished, it is over.
