There are over 40,000,000 Kamas in cash prizes to be won along with everlasting respect and glory in the WoT. Continue reading to discover how you can take part...
Prizes will be offered for:
The quickest recorded time from each stage,
Winners of a bonus game every stage,
The overall fastest average & speedrunning champions!
The poster/forum user is assumed to be the team captain, they will handle any winnings. It is solely their responsibility to split winnings evenly amongst anyone in their team.
At the beginning of each week or 'stage', a thread will be updated at the bottom of this page. You will find within it the target boss for that stage and the bonus game. To enter, you must simply reply to that topic with your team name and a full-page victory screenshot or full-fight video against the dungeon boss.
Once you have entered your time, you may continue to improve on it until the stage ends. To do this, simply edit the improved screenshot or video into your initial entry post. It is up to you if you wish to delete your old time or show off your progress.
Once the identity of the next dungeon boss is released, however, entries for the previous stage will be closed and locked in place. The victor of that stage will then be announced.
After the fourth stage, weighted average times will be used to determine the fastest competitor. If a stage was missed or disqualified, the slowest time from the entries for that stage +15seconds will be used instead. The team boasting the lowest average time will be crowned champions of the world! (Or at least this small segment of it.)
Anyone who falsifies results in any way will be automatically disqualified from the competition with their past entries voided. If you suspect someone of cheating, report their entry post. IV reserves the right to disqualify entrants who do not adhere to our terms of conduct without notice.
You can view the process of calculating the weighted stage averages here:
The mean average time from each stage minus the slowest time will first be calculated from all entries,
These will be added together to create a total mean average time for the competition,
The proportion of each stage compared to the total average can then be calculated,
These proportions will be weighted to reflect 25% for each stage,
These weightings will then be used to create a weighted time from each competitor's fastest time,
Competitors weighted times will be added together and divided by 4 to create a competition average.
The lowest average time will win.
20, 235, 117, 182, seconds are the stage mean averages,
3.61%, 42.42% 21.12%, 32.85%,
25/3.61=6.92521 [example stage 1 weighting]
20x6.92521=138.50416 [example stage 1 score]
In the event of decimals, figures will always be rounded to 5 places.
