Huh, a Christmassy Special Season? And at the end of the year which started it? Very bookendy. Congratulations to Ray502 on his victory, I'll be sending Tings shortly. And well done, CHRdutch! I know you were nervous about hosting, but I think you've done rather well. I hope you've enjoyed being a host, and be sure to PM Humch for your special Avatar reward for successfully hosting!

Of course, the Special Season is a new format, and it's been almost a year now since we last used it, so I think it might be best to bring out the Special Season rulebook and structure. I'll see if I can't find it.

Consider this also me signing up for the special season, I'd love to see how it plays out as a contestant this time.

TTQ Special Edition Ruleset

Post by Master » Fri Dec 08, 2017 7:15 pm

I've brought up the ruleset for the Special Edition and made a few changes as this isn't an anniversary quiz. I've made this a separate post so I can link to it from the OP.

Please see the rules as below:
Gameplay:
  • This quiz will play out in rounds, each round will consist of two sets of 10 questions
  • One set of questions will be asked to Team A, the other set to Team B
  • Unlike the normal quiz, there will be a time limit, 12 hours per question. There is also only ONE chance to answer, no editing of answers will be allowed.
  • Unanswered or incorrectly answered questions will be added to a third question set
  • New questions will be submitted once both teams have answered their questions, or if time runs out
  • In the event of a tie, both teams will nominate one player to play in a head-to-head.
  • Head to head takes place over a weekend, and will involve answering questions from the aforementioned third set.
  • In the event of a 10 point tie, there will be a fastest finger competition instead, players will inform the quizmaster as to when they're available in such an event.
  • Once a round ends, the highest scoring team is split into two, and a new round begins.
  • Final round will be traditional TTQ between the final two members.
Rules:
  • There will be team captains to co-ordinate teams, they will submit the final answers by quoting the quizmaster (to send notification) and highlighting the answer given (red and in bold).
  • In the event that a team captain is unavailable, a team member can submit an answer on their behalf in the same manner.
  • Should a team member answer a question against the wishes of the team's captains, the team member will be barred from participating for the next two questions.
  • Answers should be submitted by quoting the question, this will allow for the quizmaster to be notified
  • ONLY ONE ANSWER will be accepted, any attempts to answer or edit the given answer thereafter will cause the team to be penalised.
  • Answering the opposite team's question will invalidate both the opponents and the answering team's questions. The answering team will then be penalised by losing another question in their set. Thus giving less opportunity for points.
  • Continued aggravation will lead to disqualification with ting deductions.
  • If a team aggrieves en masse, they will automatically lose the round, and be subject to ting deductions.
Rewards:
  • Rewards are given to the losing team members at the end of a round
  • Rewards start at 50 tings, and double each round (i.e. Round 1 - 50 tings, Round 2 - 100 tings)
  • For final round, winners reward is set at double the running reward (eg. if final round reward is at 800 tings, winner will receive 1600, loser will win 800, or 400/200 if threeway final)

I have a two questions,
1.Who is going to be in team A and team B, Do we choose what team we'll be in or is it picked at random?
2. How can team members share thier answers with the rest of the team?

Contestants are selected randomly. However, I did apply some balancing between teams, my suggestion to Ray502 is to initially randomise, but then switch team members so that the average win rate of players between teams is about the same. You're going to have a bit of imbalance if you've got vets all in one team and newer players in the other. Also, for Ray502, remember not to give away the answer if a team answers wrong. They're meant to be kept for a tiebreaker.

As for discussing answers, you can do so in the thread. Since teams have different questions to answer, there's no need to conceal your own discussions, as it's of no benefit to the opposing team. If one team answers the other team's question, then they are penalised as explained in the ruleset. To compensate for this, questions for a special edition quiz can be more challenging.

Check out the 100th Season if you want to see the format in action, you can find it from here: https://raymanpc.com/forum/viewtopic.ph ... 6#p1201346

With that, I guess it's time to start coming up with a lot of questions to ask!

Should we aim for 5 players on each team before having the chance to begin?

Given current activity metrics, 5 per team might be a little optimistic. I'd say have the two week break for signing up, see what the numbers are like, and take it from there.

As of writing, I believe myself and WizardMinecraft have signed up, so that's two players in the running.

I mean, we could move this to the announcements section, but last time the host just advertised the season on the portal. I'll be doing the same. :wink:
