Place: Hades C TP

The Crafting Event
  • Entrance fee will be announced at event time, but will not exceed 100ped.
  • Entrance fee will cover materials cost.
  • All contestants will meet at Hades C TP. We'll all run to the crafting location.
  • All contestants will pay the entrance fee and be given BP, book and enough materials for a specific amount of clicks.
  • All contestants must use the crafting machines in that area.
  • Ready. Set. Craft!!!
  • All materials, and BPs must be shown to the judges in trade window.
  • Crafters get to keep the crafted item/res, & looted BPs. Competition BPs will be handed back.

There will be 2 ways to win.

How to win:
1st Place - Most crafted material (excluding res)
2nd Place - Highest global total (If no globals, the 2nd highest crafted material wins 2nd place.)

Multiple globals will be added together, so 53 and 86 ped globals will beat a 100 ped global

The prizes:
Winner #1 - 100 peds
Winner #2 - 50 peds



All entrants, please announce your intention to enter on this thread please, so we can gauge how much material to buy. Thank you.

Bump? :scratch2:

Due to complaints about tight budgets, I've lowered the entrance fee (and unfortunately the prizes too)

The max this contest will cost will now be only 100 peds. :yay:

Like any contest (such as hunting) there's no skill requirement, however higher skills may help.



Oh, and bump. :D

Residue won't help, Amir, prize is based on crafted material excluding residue. Sounds like another nice contest from JC. Which I could be there, and this time i could even afford entry, but the time just doesn't work. +rep and gL.

I've run a few of these now, and have certain built-in methods of weeding out cheaters. Plus, I believe the vast majority of contestants play fair. (I simply make sure to remove the 0.05% that don't) If you're uncomfortable, just search "capital crafting contest" and check out my past contests. MS9 even did a video of the 1st one so you know what goes on. :)

Also, it's always done on qty, not TT value. (I.E. 4 shin-guards worth 5 ped wins over 3 shin-guards worth 15 ped) So bringing extra residue doesn't help at all. In fact it just might get you kicked from the contest. ;)

this really sounds fun.

Well, to give you a hint, Eelco, the last contest was crafting guns, so it could be anything.

However, what the item to be crafted is always remains my personal secret until the contest starts. That's part of my security to make sure folks can't just bring a bunch of (say basic screws) before hand and say "hey I crafted these". :cool:

Indeed yes. I posted that bump last night "my time".

This bump, however, says there's only 2 hours left, no matter where you live. :D

It was fun :yay:

maybe could have cut down a bit on the clicks though...

But not too bad...
Endurance is a virtue in crafting... :D

Big Gratz to all the winners :yay:

I missed 2nd place with just 6 tubes... One more success and I would have beaten buzz :wtg:

oh well, no prize this time, but I will for sure keep my eye out for the next compo
