Whodunnit? Competition proceeds as usual while Grim’s investigation continues
While chatter and speculation on Grim’s disappearance makes its rounds amongst the Eyewire community, HQ keeps their silence on the matter and promises that the bi-monthly competition will proceed as usual. (See our previous article on Grim’s sudden disappearance here).
The National Enqeyewirer finds HQ’s blasé response rather alarming when a such a staple Eyewire community member like Grim has gone missing! But nevertheless, perhaps a gathering of Eyewirers for another friendly competition will unlock some of the clues behind Grim’s mysterious disappearance.
The National Enqeyewirer reporters have gathered exclusive inside information on the upcoming dates of each competition event. Read on to be the first to know where and when these events will take place.
Questionable Accuracy Happy Hours
First session runs 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM on Friday 10/21
Second session runs 10:00 PM to 11:59 PM on Friday 10/21
Meticulously put the piece together of these Eyewire cubes, and you may also put together some pieces of this mystery….
1st Place Accuracy – 10,000 points
2nd Place Accuracy – 8,000 points
3rd Place Accuracy – 6,000 points
Achieve 95% Accuracy – 5,000 points
Achieve 90% Accuracy – 3,000 points
Achieve 80% Accuracy – 2,000 points
1,000 points for anyone under 80% who still plays at least 10 cubes in either slot.
(These bonus thresholds are non-cumulative, i.e. they will not combine. If you earn 3rd place, for instance, and presumably got over 95% accuracy, you still earn a 6,000 point bonus, not 11,000.)
