Hi Nifkinn

We are aware that the descriptions for challenges 1 and 2 are currently displaying incorrectly under the badges in the hub.

On top of this, the leaderboard for challenge 1 is currently being calculated by the amount of TT score obtained when this should be by the trophy with the highest TT score.

I have been advised that a developer is working on this and will be fixed tomorrow smile

Started 'Biathalon', but it didn't progress to "I" after getting Bad Boss trophy.

So i then clicked 'rebuild' which i didn't realize would still not credit me for that B since it now shows not even started. Any way to fix it?
Same thing happened to me with the "Achievement Slalom" challenge. I didn't notice that when I clicked the "start challenge" button (or whatever) it gave me an "are you sure?" dialogue. I did 2 trophies for the challenge before I realized I never actually joined it. Oh well.

(Not sure if this is the reason you had this problem.)

Okay, so reading the rules on the first page for "Chair Lift", I just want to clarify:

It won't disqualify you and make you restart the challenge if you don't get an achievement that's 0.4 or greater after unlocking your first one, but the challenge will continue on when I do unlock the next achievement with 0.4 or greater and continue on from there?

Yes, that's correct. It's fine to earn trophies that don't have a TT Ratio of more than 0.4, they just won't be attributed to the challenge unless they do have a TT Ratio of 0.4 or more. smile

Thanks for letting us know. The rebuild panel wasn't actually supposed to be there, so that's our fault... cry

If you can let me know the trophies you started with (and you haven't started any other challenges yet) I can look at rerunning these through for you. Drop me a PM. toast

I'm really enjoying this one so far.

I just happened to have a day off work yesterday when it started, and may have gone a bit overboard with the Cross Country Skiing challenge.

I'm also having trouble with Biathlon.

I wanted to do T and H with "Thanks for Playing" and "Heartbeat" (the platinum) in Celeste. "Thanks for Playing" was my last trophy in the game and it counted correctly. "Heartbeat" did not. Is it because they probably have the same timestamp?

Oh man. I screwed up Chair Lift. Wish we had one free re-try, ha. Definitely hard with having to plan very carefully. I had forgotten I started the challenge and worked on something else which kinda made it impossible for me to continue, based upon limited choices. Whoops. I suppose that I could have continued, but it would have led to me having to sink a lot of time into it, and I would have had to go into more difficult higher ratios. I know we've got a lot of time to complete these challenges, but I want to be able to attempt them all.

Going to try to spell BIATHLON. I'm half way through this challenge on TA. Might as well start it here! I guess this is a lesson to learn for when I attempt chair lift on TA!

So now I've completed Biathlon but there's still no one listed on the leaderboard.

Just noticed that the leaderboards in the contest hub shows my state flag instead of my country flag, ignoring my flag setting. Not a huge deal but I really don't like my state's flag.

Got the Onwards! trophy in star wars battlefront for O in challenge 4 and it hasn't counted towards the challenge :(

I suspect that's because only trophies that begin and end with letters count -! is a problem
