    Default Challenges 6 and 7, Season 1: The Arcade Challenges

    Challenges 6 and 7, Season 1: The Arcade Challenges

    You may have noticed that an arcade has recently been installed. The scores that have been racked up so far will be reset shortly for these last two challenges. The challenges will be run concurrently and last one week.

    * The team with the highest combined cumulative arcade scores at the end of a week will win Challenge 6.
    * The team with the most highscore trophies in the individual games at the end of a week will win Challenge 7.

    These challenges will end on Sunday, August 3 at 11pm Eastern time.

    Haight just reset all of the scores, and now everything is ready to go.

    Unfortunately, it won't reset my scores (maybe because I'm a mod), so whatever I've played up to this date won't count.

    Actually, it's impossible to erase all of the high scores, not just mine. However, I suspect that all of those scores will fall. Regardless, it's probably fairly simple to calculate from the 28th and forward.

    Let's get it on. . .

    Can we have Didums on our team? Even if he doesn't want to play?

    I'm not sure I understand how Challenge 6 is calculated. Is it a matter of adding the high score of each player for each game? Like, if there are five arcade games and ten team members, it will be the sum of 50 different scores? Or is it the cumulative total of scores all week so that if I wanted to play 24/7 I'd do better than someone who played for a few hours just because I played more games?

    Haight or NPG or file cabinet can explain it more fully, but if you click on Leaderboard it shows each player's overall score which is calculated somehow (I assume magic) by the software. These will be added together for each team. (And one of them will step up with their pimp hands if I'm wrong.)

    What I'm getting at is, can somebody win by just playing the games 16 hours a day, or is it based on HIGH scores. Like if I play the game three times and score 100, 100 and 100, do I beat someone who plays it once and gets 200?

    Sorry, my J hand is strong
