The competition turned out really great! Sorry if it took long, but there were several skills and about 20-30 players lmao.
Thx everyone who helped out and thx everyone who took part! I had such a great time spectating and making this competition possible that I don't even feel sad I didn't get to compete 😉
Awesome job to the newer players who did really well! Hopefully some clans sent their scouts to keep an eye on these future superstars! 😉
Here is the list of winners:
Precisions Shooting: Surge
Tank Control: Surge
Simulated Combat: Chris
Tank Combat: Surge
Obstacle Course: ~Warlord~
Below are the full details on each skill! Check to see who was a runner up! 😉
Precision Shooting: Winner = Surge
The first skill was precision shooting! 5 orbs were set up and players had to hit all 5 in the fewest shots possible. When we tested this skill a few weeks earlier hardly anyone could get it in 5 shots.
Last night, Gangsta Grills stepped up first and hit 5 for 5! So.. right from the start, all participants had to go 5 for 5 to stay in the competition! Surge came up second and he also hit 5 for 5!
At this point, people in the crowd seemed a bit confused. Some were like.. WTF Weebo this is way too easy LOL. However, they didn't realize that the first two competitors really had done an incredible job. The next 15 players to try all failed to hit 5 for 5. We had a few people go 5 for 6 shots but many who did 7 +.
This was definitely hilarious to watch as people stepped up and on their first laser shot missed an orb. ROFL.
One exciting moment was near the end when a newbie named Spyderman tried his best. He hit the first 4 orbs in 4 shots and everyone was silent and watching to see if he would qualify for the final round..! He missed the last orb and did it in 6 🙁 However that was still an awesome job!
In the final round, we dropped 6 Orbs. Surge hit 6 for 6. Gangsta then tried to tie it up, but missed an orb too give Surge the victory!
Tank Control: Winner = Surge
The tank control was a sweet little race track which went around water and rocks and had walls in the path for people to manouever around.
The track was raced 5 times. After each race we allocated 3pts to 1st place, 2pts to second place and 1pt to third place. Surge won first place in 4 of the 5 races to win this skill
Surge = 14pts
Chris = 6pts
Biggz = 5pts
Warlord = 3pts
Chaos952 = 2pts
Simulated Attack: Winner = Chris
For this skill we set up 5 orbs behind 5 turrets. Each player had 30 seconds to destroy as many Orbs as they could. For a while, Gangsta Grills was the guy to beat after he destroyed 3 orbs! RBG then tied him a little while later with a mark of 3 as well! However, Chris then stepped up to the plate and destroyed all 5 turrets and all 5 orbs in 26 seconds! Most people were convinced that would definitely give him the win, but then CMB came up next and did the exact same thing in 29 seconds! No other players were able to tie them, so we went to the final round tie breaker!
For the final round, the same set up was put in place except the turrets were replaced with plasmas! Chris went first and destroyed all 5 plasmas and all 5 orbs in 28 seconds! CMB came close to forcing a third round, but ran out of time as soon as he destroyed the 5th plasma before he got a chance to destroy a single orb. Of course, having all the plasmas gone, he could have gotten all the orbs with 3-4 seconds.
Special dibbs to Zhantrim who ran behind the turrets safely sheltered by a group of rocks and then shot one of the orbs through the crack between the rocks. That was sneaky!
Also, spyderman once again got everyones attention during this skill. As soon as we said go, without ever shooting a weapon he charged straight at the turrets like a brave little warrior. He pulled a sweet turn down which made "most" bullets miss him, then managed to get behind the turrets to where all the orbs were LOL. He still didn't shoot though, he just ran on top of them and in my mind I imagined him pressing, "u" 10000 times in an attempt to pick them up. He was unfortunately blown to bits by the 5 turrets. Good effort though.
We also had some nice efforts by Biggz, GODZILLA and dudrubber.
Tank Combat: Winner = Surge
The tank combat was a duel tournament. If you lost your duel, you were out, if you won you qualified for the next round.
The final duel was held between Manta and Surge. Surge took out Manta in about 5 seconds landing every shot as a direct hit. Nice job getting all the way to the final though Manta!
The best duel I saw was between Surge and ~Warlord~ in one of the earlier rounds. It lasted for over one minute and both players were really running around dodging and shooting very nicely.
Nightwish had a close duel against mrmcnutz which he barely won, which was another good fight to watch. Chaos952 then took out Nightwish in the next round with another good battle.
Obstacle Course: Winner = ~Warlord~
Lastly, there was the awesome obstacle course built by Method. This course was designed like a gauntlet using buildings with turrets placed inside for the competitors to destroy. At the end of the structure was an orb! Whoever could reach the orb the fastest would win!
~Warlord~ made it to the end in 1min12. Penguinizi was a close second at 1min14. RBG was the only other person to complete the course. All others were destroyed by turrets 😉
