Introducing the Prey's World daily quiz challenge!

Postby Sly Boots » Wed Nov 02, 2016 1:17 pm

Ok, so that was fairly simple to set up, so here it is you guys!

Link to our tournament:

http://www.funtrivia.com/private/main.cfm?tid=103924

Go to the site, set up a profile and you're good to go.

Like I said, we'll treat this first month as a gentle introduction. I've chosen some easier categories as we get used to the format. Essentially, it's 10 multiple choice questions, and the faster you can complete it, the better your score.

You get 100pts for each correct answer, and 1pt deducted for every second it takes to complete. If you get exactly the same score as another player, the first one who completed the quiz goes above out of the two of them.

I have to set the categories each week selecting difficulties, I'll try to keep mixing it up but do shout if you want to see something I've not chosen, or object to something I have. It's pretty simple to configure.

And, go! :D

Good time, Raid, how many seconds do we need to knock off for excessive cheating ;)

Was quite a nice easy one to start with today. Once we're comfortable with the format I'll start introducing the harder versions of the categories.

Dithered on the music one and educationally guessed in the end :)

I had +2 points after I finished, now I have +3. We still have the same final score.

Yeah, in the event of the same score, whoever did it first goes above the other/s.

The points will change as more people complete it, generally if there's say 10 players, the top player gets 10, second place gets 9 etc.

The daily points (955 in your case) determine your placing that day, the +2, +3 points and what-have-you are what add towards your aggregate total for the month, and determine your eventual finishing position in our mini-league at the end of November.

Eg, tomorrow you'll have 0 points for that day until you do the quiz, but your monthly points will be +3 or whatever you end up with after everyone has played today.

Incidentally, the quiz refreshes at 7am GMT each day, rather than midnight.

Ah it's OK I thought the 2 and 3 thing was the final score. Phone scroll fail shows what I hadn't seen.

It does have a slightly vintage air, admittedly :lol:

The questions are all pretty current, though. Except for the history ones... ¬_¬

Neat idea Sly. 1 second off your time, hesitated on the one question.

Is there a prize for being the only person to get one wrong? -_-

I misclicked one of my answers. :( I'll be doing a lot of these on my phone so fully expect to not win this.
