Crawl "Sudden Death" Challenges is a new Crawl competition that will hopefully fill a niche somewhere between the biannual Crawl tournaments and the rarer dieselrobin events. The idea is for players to compete by trying to get the highest score in a game of Crawl with one attempt only; if you die, that challenge is over (thus "sudden death", though you may - will - often also die suddenly). This competition will be a lower time commitment event that will hopefully still challenge players, as well as encouraging different characters and play styles that you might not normally consider. I'll keep this post up-to-date with all information regarding the competition, so check back here for details.
CSDC Season 1 Results and Standings
I will try to update the standings at least once per day (usually around 9-10pm EST). You can use the bot commands on the "Rules and Information" tab of the scoring sheet to view relevant challenge information in ##crawl whenever you wish, though.
1 Each challenge is a randomly chosen Crawl race/class combo (e.g. HaWr).
2 You get ONE attempt to play each combo. The goal is to get the highest in-game score possible.
3 Players are organized by divisions. You only compete with the players in your division.
4 New combos are selected once a week. The season lasts 10 weeks, i.e. 10 different combos per season.
5 Additionally each challenge has an optional bonus challenge (see "Bonuses" tab for the list). Each bonus will have two tiers; the
second tier is more difficult, and worth more points.
6 Top 3 players in each division qualify for a one-week playoff to determine a champion. Playoff format to be announced after Week 3.
1 Games must be played online in Trunk. Any logged server is allowable (CAO, CSZO, CLAN, CBRO, RHF).
2 Playing the same char simultaneously on more than one server is not allowed.
3 No races or classes that have not made it into a stable release will be eligible for challenge combos. In addition, Dithmengos
cannot be worshipped in any challenge game (player receives 0 pts for that challenge).
4 Each challenge will be open for 2 weeks. All games must be ended before the challenge is closed in order to count.
5 One redo is allowed if player XL < 4 (i.e., no redos once you hit XL 4). The higher of the two games counts for your score.
6 In case of a drastic change to Trunk that affects an open combo, players who completed the open combo will have the
option to replay it once. If replayed, the 2nd score will stand even if the 1st score is higher.
