UNOFFICIAL CONTEST RESULTS

Postby weasel on Sat Mar 21, 2009 12:08 am

** NOTE ** This post now outdated. Check the updated thread.

===

The list to follow is a tentative, unofficial, not-finalized top ten! It is not presented in any sort of order and has no scores. See:

# Entity
# jdelgado06
# jofjltn4
# aakay.net
# nathanwitte
# gaminkwb
# nightblood09
# stickywulf
# pillagethenburn
# ruudje

We need to verify all the scores, run some security tests, and make sure each entry is eligible for victory. I haven't looked them over too closely so it's quite likely at least a few of the scores will be inaccurate or something, and there's a chance I missed someone in the final tally. I'm hoping to have a more solidified list up in the morning!

Here's some interesting facts though:
:waterrod: We have over 2,800 submissions total in the contest.
:waterrod: The average score submitted is in the range of 190-230 points.
:waterrod: My personal score is too embarrasing to share, but it's around 40 points.
:waterrod: Kula35 is the first person to submit a score (230 points!), just 11 hours after the contest started.
:waterrod: One minute later, Zekepunk stole the spotlight with a score of only 137 points.
:waterrod: 20 minutes after that, siegypf set a new record with only 98 points.
:waterrod: 24 hours later (Saturday night), rwml2 set the new highscore of only 77 points.
:waterrod: 24 hours after that (Sunday night), wintermadness beat that score with 71 points. This record stood for a long time - 3 days! - until the following Wednesday.
:waterrod: But then BHCS dropped a new all-time low of merely 14 points! I was shocked to see one so low so quickly!
:waterrod: nathandavis submitted the first overtime score, disqualifying himself 1 minute after the contest ended (with 15 points)

Quite frankly, I was happy to post my -13... then realised I used two wrong design saves...
Actual score?
-17... : :evil:
(Edit: Wait nope. Went back and rechecked, I had the right ones, just forgot to uncheck boxes when I was entering the IDs again.)
Oh well... Congratulations to the winners!

But I'll bet two of my designs are faster than most of the top tens' scores.

Stuck: -6, 56 ticks:
http://FantasticContraption.com/?designId=6862648

Canyon +9, 326 ticks: (I've got one at 283 or so, but its powered...)

I thought I did really well, but you all beat the crap out of me... ><
My final score was an (apparently awful) 2. Not negative. Just 2.

Champion Badge Leaves the goal piece(s) in the goal forever! Don't let them roll out or trundle on after the Victory message. Even this tiny change will make your contraptions require a lot more thought!

I would imagine this means not even for a split second which it goes out then comes back in on some of your claimed champion badges when you shouldn't have. Key words "goal forever! " not in then out then back in forever

The point is moot. It has been answered previously that the object can leave then return and stay forever and be champ.

Weasel answered this (and many other things) in the official contest thread (patiently and repeatedly).
You can read through it here:

Thanks Weasel!
