The Team Pursuit is a two person team tournament.  The goal is to achieve the most pieces of pie as a team (highest scores) in all of the categories in Factacular.  Tournament runs from January 9th to January 13.

RULES:

Two (2) person team.

Find your own partner and enter by posting your chosen team name and team members. 

Only in extreme cases will we match partners.

If your partner cannot play, you can choose another partner.  Their scores will be added to the accumulated scores previously earned.

There will be six 10 question, subject-based random challenges per day. These will consist of three (3) challenges from two categories per day as follows:

Day One: 3 History and Mythology, 3 Music

Day Two: 3 Language, 3 Science and Nature

Day Three: 3 Arts and Literature, 3 Miscellaneous

Day Four: 3 Movies, 3 Geography

Day Five: 3 Entertainment, 3 Sports and Leisure

A progressive Results Table will be posted in a public forum and available to all team members.  Challenges will be sent by Java Jive.

SCORING

The team with the highest cumulative total for each subject gets a piece of pie. The team with the highest cumulative total in all subjects gets a bonus 3 pieces of pie, 2nd highest gets 2 bonus pieces of pie and 3rd gets 1 bonus piece of pie. At the end the team with the most pieces of pie wins. In the case of a tie, the tied teams will receive three brainoffs consisting of three x 20 question randoms.

FURTHER AND A DISCLAIMER:

In case the Factacular site hiccups, we will spring into action and resolve issues as soon as the site is up and running and continue with the competition. Challenges need to be played within 48 hours of them being sent. We do respectfully ask that everyone play their challenges as soon as possible after receiving them --- you will be less likely be affected if the site goes down. We will only replay challenges if the site is down for more than 12 hours on the last day of a challenge. We will not replay for anyone letting the challenge time out or for minor site glitches. If you drop through a brainoff without being able to play contact JMK asap via PM as the challenge may be able to be reset. Do not refresh the page whist playing as this will result in a 0 score and cannot be reset.

The Tournament Organiser or her Partner volunteer their own time, so have some patience with the resolution of any problems that you may encounter and expect that there may be delays in the immediate posting of results as these are updated manually. Please send a private message to JMK or Java if you encounter problems or discrepancies.  Decisions made by Tournament Organiser or her Partner are final and no correspondence will be entered into.

LOL.....wait, for real? Doctor Factenstein? OH SNAPP!

Ok....just checking.

It's been a long time so I thought he was "out of order" or something.

Helen McKenzie, welcome your partner. You will probably be getting pieces of pie simply because he's that good.

I wouldn't plan on that title Quiz and bertie.

I know it looks good, I am just saying I have been through this before.

Access objects to certain characters whilst being programmed.

It will be something like that, ok?

C'mon guys, really?

"lindy and I" - "Taz and veps"?

In what legal realm, around the world, would that be acceptable?

All my poor darling is trying to do is work out who is in or not.

It's come to the stage where the poor lady has to call me in to review.

Here's a tip......do not abbreviate ANYTHING! Usernames are probably abbreviated anyway. Abbreviating them again does not make you look smarter.

The fact is, one of my systems will handle this and abbreviated names do NOT help. In fact, they might delay.

So, if you want to be in this, state your damn username correctly!

You should be proud of it anyway. YOU made it up!

Truncating it makes no sense.

Tazing and vepa1943 will be confirmed WHEN either Tazing or vepa1943 post and confirm.

Whilst the standing of JMK is noticed, it cannot and should not be deemed as a replacement for one or either of the members concerned.

(corrected - see below)

Note to Entrants Quiz3000 and bertie - the ampersand had to be replaced with an "and".

Ampersands don't work well with code.

I got over-ruled.

Shuddup.......it's not like this hasn't happened to YOU before.

Out of principal, I battled. But then I remembered how nice her legs feel on a cold night.

Then I folded like a tea towel.

Sorry guys, you are on your own.
