I hope you're all ready because the team challenge is back! You've got 27 days as a team to complete as many of the categories as possible (or ideally to complete all of them and make sure you're done before the other two teams ^^) We had the team challenge twice last year and both times Vanity won, then earlier this year their streak was broken by a win from Malice. Will Vanity reclaim their title, Malice continue their streak or will Spite emerge victorious?

The rules are simple, you can earn points in any (or all) of the categories below and simply mail your updates to your team leader who will keep track of your individual progress and add it to the team's overall progress. This allows you all to keep up to date and see areas where your team might need a little extra help. Because of this keeping your team leader updated regularly is incredibly helpful to the team, however make sure you put multiple updates in 1 neomail and no more than 1 update mail a day, we don't want your leader getting buried in her inbox o.0

The challenge runs from the 1st August to the 27th August and only things gained during this time count and any updates not in by midnight on the 27th will not be counted.

FAQ

Do NT publications count if they are submitted in July?
Yes! Due to the long time between submitting an NT entry and potential publication, anything you have submitted in July that gets published in August will count as a +1 for the publication category (but not for submission). This only counts for the NT though, not areas such as the AG which has a much quicker response time.

Do I have to wait until I actually see my publication for it to count?
Yes, a publication won't count until it's actually been published for everyone to see. The only exception here is (once more) the NT. If you get a held-over mail for that it will count as a publication. The same does NOT apply to the PC as it is possible to get held-over mails without being published in the future.

Can I carry on earning things in a category even if it is complete?
You can. When a category has been completed by your team it will be striked out and any further things you do in that category will not help your team, however they will allow you to work towards guild avatars.

Do trophies that I receive in August but worked on in July (PT, multiplayer) count towards the trophies earned in August?
No. The idea of the team challenge is that the work towards the challenge is all done in the same month.

What counts as an upgrade?
Bronze to Silver or Silver to Gold counts as a single upgrade. Bronze to gold will count as two upgrades.

Which NQ counts for the XP earned?
You can count both neoquests, and 10k earned in each will mean you have a total of 20k.

Can I split challenges over multiple pets/galleries?
No. You need to choose one pet per category. For example if you read 100 books to one pet and 100 books to another your total is still only 100. However all categories do not have to be on the same pet, one could be for reading books, another could be gourmets etc. Of course they can be on the same pet if you like. As for galleries it doesn't have to be the gallery on your main, but you can only count the items added to one gallery.

What if no one completes the challenge?
If no team (or only 1 team) completes the challenge we go by how much is left to complete in the remaining categories and the team with the least wins. When a category is crossed off any additional scores to that category will not make a difference (a team with 100/50 kads won't count more than a team with 50/50 kads). In some cases it's obvious, but if not we'll allocate a percentage to each category based on the size of the goal (4/5 on a category will hurt a team more than a 74/75 category etc.). And yeah. Basically we'll do maths stuff.



Too lazy to list out the requirements for most of the avs, pretty self explanatory. Top person per team for each (and there can be ties). For the last 5:

Score 1 (and only 1) in one of the categories.
Earn 100% of a category (50 kads/7 trophis etc.)
Submit something in every category.
Earn at least 5 top of category avatars.
Trophies
Bronze ~ submit in 5 categories
Silver ~ Submit in 10 categories
Gold ~ Submit in 15 categories
yeah predictably I have yet to do the trophies
