Big news. @A5hm0r just dethroned @ketta as the top scoring player in EyeWire history and is set to break 2 MILLION points this weekend. To celebrate, we’re hosting a special @A5hmor Challenge on Friday, July 12 from 2 to 4 pm US ET.
How To Win:
Contenders will be ranked by three metrics: points, cubes and accuracy.
For each metric, players rank 1, 2, 3…n. Ranks will then be summed to generate a final score. For example, say EyeWirer @nkem ranks #1 on points, #5 on cubes and #2 on accuracy. His combined tally is 1+5+2 or 8. The player with the lowest combined score wins. First place will land you a 3x bonus of points scored during the competition window. 2nd place wins 1.5x points. In the event of a tie, we will have a one hour bonus round based solely on accuracy.
Accuracy takes a few days to assess. We will reveal the winner by Tuesday, July 16.
But wait, there’s more.
- Score over 5,000 points in 2 hours and win a 2,500 point bonus.
- Score over 10,000 points and you’ll earn a 5,000 point bonus.
That means that if you get to 10K points, you’ll win a combined bouns of 7,500 points. Like a boss.
Remember that starburst cells give double points — be sure to beat the Starburst Challenge by Friday and play starburst cubes during the challenge for maximum points. Also check out this post for tips from players and EyeWire HQ that will help you improve your F-Score (accuracy).
May the best player win — we’ll see you online at EyeWire.org!
