As most TT'ers will know, we love a community event here at TrueTrophies.
With the Winter Olympics starting this weekend, we thought we should create an Olympic-themed event for everyone to participate in!
The TrueTrophies Winter Olympics 2018
- The event runs from 10am UTC on Thursday, February 8th to Monday, February 26th at 10am UTC
- Registration is open now, and you can register throughout the event until 10am UTC on Sunday, February 25th
- Anyone can enter, as long as they are registered on the site and have full tracking
- Challenge Leaderboards and registration details are on the TrueTrophies Winter Olympics Hub
Trophies only count for the event if they are won online.
The event is comprised of nine different trophy-related challenges. Six of the challenges are revealed now, with a further three challenges to be revealed at 10am UTC on February 16th.
Two of the challenges run throughout the entire duration of the event and will be automatically tracked without you having to do anything to start them (apart from register for the event). Those two challenges are:Long Track Speed Skating
This challenge is for earning the most trophies during the entire duration of the event. It does not need to be manually started.Ski Jumping
This challenge is for earning the trophy worth the most TrueTrophies score during the entire duration of the event. It does not need to be manually started.
The next 4 challenges have to be started manually from your personal Winter Olympic event hub — this is accessed from the tab with your PSN ID in on the Winter Olympic hub
, or from the link on your Winter Olympic panel on your homepage.
Note: Only one of these challenges can be active at any time.Giant Slalom
This challenge requires you to unlock 10 trophies that are consecutively above and then below a 2.00 ratio.
- Trophy 1 - ratio below 2.00
- Trophy 2 - ratio of exactly 2.00 or above 2.00
- Trophy 3 - ratio below 2.00
- Trophy 4 - ratio of exactly 2.00 or above 2.00
- Trophy 5 - ratio below 2.00
- Trophy 6 - ratio of exactly 2.00 or above 2.00
- Trophy 7 - ratio below 2.00
- Trophy 8 - ratio of exactly 2.00 or above 2.00
- Trophy 9 - ratio below 2.00
- Trophy 10 - ratio of exactly 2.00 or above 2.00
The leaderboard will be ranked by the smallest cumulative difference between the trophies won and 2.00 — so the best possible score is 0.05.Cross Country Skiing
This is an trophy linking challenge — your first trophy can be anything you like, but your next trophy will need to start with the final letter of the first one. The next trophy will need to start with the final letter of that one, and so on.
The leaderboard will be ranked by the longest link of trophies.
Note: Only trophies that start AND end with characters A-Z will count for this. Trophies with accented characters or numerals as the first or last character will not count towards your chain.Chair Lift
Unlock as many trophies as possible with ratios increasing by at least 0.4 from the previous trophy.
Start low, climb high! The leaderboard will be ranked by the person with the most trophies, and then the highest ratio in the event of a tie.Biathlon
Spell the word BIATHLON using the first letter of trophy names, in order. The leaderboard is ranked by the highest TT ratio of the N trophy.
Trophies with accented characters or numerals as the first character will not count towards this challenge.
If you have a challenge running and unlock a trophy that does not meet the requirements (so a trophy starting with the wrong letter in the Biathlon or Cross Country Skiing, a trophy the "wrong side" of the 2.00 gate in the Giant Slalom, or a trophy of an insufficiently high ratio in the Chair Lift) the trophy will not count but you will not be penalised for it
. The challenge will just continue with the next trophy that IS valid.
You only have one attempt at each challenge — please do not start them until you are ready to go.
Participating in the event adds to the colour of your Community Events badge. This is not a Community Challenge and will not count towards that badge.
Final Three Challenges Reveal
The rules for the final three challenges will be revealed at 10am UTC on February 16th.
The top three in each event will receive a panel on their homepage showing off their medals!
As you can imagine, there is an awful lot of new code for this event. We've done our best to test everything, but it's very difficult to recreate the situations caused by all of the trophies being unlocked by the thousands of competitors.
We'll be on hand to fix issues as they occur, but please be patient if you notice anything not working as expected, and please let us know in the discussion thread.
