TEAM PURSUIT SIGNUP - 2017
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.
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.
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.
