October Accuracy Happy Hours

October! Once upon a time, October got its name because it was the eighth month of the Roman calendar, back when that calendar only had ten months. Well, a lot of us on Eyewire have since inherited the twelve-month expansion pack version, but it does so happen that we have just ten Accuracy Happy Hours per year. That’s right: stay tuned for a very special announcement next week about our end of year competition schedule, but in the meantime this week is your last chance in 2021 to trace for great accuracy-based bonuses!

You’ll have three chances to participate in these Accuracy Happy Hours; that’s three chances to get special recognition for accurate tracing! All times are EDT:

Session 1 – 8:00 AM to 10:00 AM on 10/14
Session 2 – 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM on 10/15
Session 3 – 10:00 PM to midnight on 10/15

HQ will bestow typical Happy Hour bonuses for your tracing during each of those time frames, but there’s more than that to earn!

Special Accuracy Bonuses:

  • 1st Place – 10,000 points
  • 2nd Place – 8,000 points
  • 3rd Place – 6,000 points
  • 95% Accuracy – 5,000 points
  • 90% Accuracy – 3,000 points
  • 80% Accuracy – 2,000 points
  • 1,000 points for anyone under 80% who still plays at least 30 cubes in either slot.

Mentors: You are still allowed to mentor people during these time windows. Please just use your best judgment as to whether someone is asking you for basic newbie help vs. trying to have you boost their accuracy on cube after cube.

Scythes: Please avoid scything during these time windows. Even though accuracy for this will be retroactively calculated, we would prefer to go with accuracy based on players’ raw tracing.

For science!
