After the two hours is up you can click the end challenge button to officially complete the challenge and appear on the leaderboard.

The leaderboard is ranked by the person with the most Bronze trophies earned within their two hour time period.

Half Pipe

Trophy 1: 1.0 ratio
Trophy 2: 5.0 ratio - total difference is now 4.0
Trophy 3: 2.0 ratio - total difference is now 7.0
Trophy 4: 9.0 ratio - total difference is now 14.0

The leaderboard is ranked by the person with the largest difference and then by fastest to complete.

Repeating Challenges

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.

Winners Panel

The top three in each event will receive a panel on their homepage showing off their medals!

Good luck!

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.
