Greetings, Eyewirers. Captain Bronto here, with your preliminary task on the first joint dinosaur-hominid construction project in history!
In less glamorous terms, welcome to spaceflight boot camp. As you may recall, we are going to build a Neuro-Ray in outer space for destroying that Earth-obliterating asteroid. As you may also be aware, building things in outer space can be a little harrowing for first-timers. An eye for absolute precision and accuracy is key! Thus, my friends, you must hone your skills for flying the vessels we will use to haul the Neuro-Ray parts into the vasty cosmic deep.
We will have two accuracy training sessions (all times EDT):
Session 1 – 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM on 4/22
Session 2 – 10:00 PM to 11:59 PM on 4/22
Eyewire HQ will bestow typical Happy Hour bonuses for your work during each of those time frames, but there’s more than that to earn!
80% accuracy – Congratulations, you’ve got your Space Pilot license.
90% accuracy – Let’s make that a Master Space Pilot license.
95% accuracy – Watch out… we’ve got a Grandmaster Space Pilot over here.
Extra point bonuses will be added to your baseline Happy Hour earnings, as follows:
1st Place Accuracy – 10,000 point bonus
2nd Place Accuracy – 8,000 point bonus
3rd Place Accuracy – 6,000 point bonus
Anyone else with 95% – 5,000 point bonus
Anyone else with 90% – 3,000 point bonus
Anyone else with 80% – 2,000 point bonus
Under 80% but played at least 20 cubes – 1,000 point bonus
Please remember that these bonuses are non-cumulative; first place accuracy gets a flat 10,000 points, for example.
1 box of space loot for whoever traces at least 20 cubes with the highest accuracy
1 poster each for whoever traces at least 20 cubes with the 2nd and 3rd highest accuracy
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. By the time this challenge is scored, don’t worry, admins will have corrected consensus as needed.
