Introducing The TrueTrophies Link Frog Challenge

It's time to earn your next Community Challenge badge! After the fantastic success of our recent Hangman event, our next Community Challenge is going to start today. It's a fresh take on an old classic — The TrueTrophies Link Frog Challenge.

TT Link Frog

What is The TT Link Frog Community Challenge?

Link Frog is a mashup of the Leap Frog format and the trophy linking challenge we've used previously as an Olympic Event. The goal is to link as many trophies together as possible, based on their starting and ending letters. This is a great opportunity to work through your backlog and see how just how long a chain you can create.

The Community Challenge is to make a chain of 10 or greater during the event. If you manage to string 10 trophies together, you will earn your next Community Challenge badge.

The challenge begins today, Monday March 18th at 12 midday UTC, and to register all you need to do is head over to the Challenge Hub and hit the "Register Now" button on the right-hand side of the page.

Once you are ready to begin forming your chain, click the 'Start' button and unlock the trophy you want to begin the chain with. To extend the chain, unlock a trophy that starts with the same letter the previous trophy in the chain ended with. You can find an example set of trophies in the spoiler tags below.

*** Spoiler - click to reveal ***

Once you've unlocked the initial trophy, you'll see a box that will take you to your 'easy trophies' on both the side panel of your homepage as well as your progress page — this page will be filtered for the letter needed to continue the chain. Unlocking a trophy that doesn't add to the chain doesn't break it, it's just ignored for the purposes of this event.

There is a button to manually end the challenge which will finish your chain. If you do not manually end your challenge, it will be finalized for you at the close of the event.

The event will run for two weeks until Monday, April 1st at midday UTC.

Which trophies count for the TT Link Frog Community Challenge?

  • Your initial trophy must end with an English letter to be valid.
  • Trophies after your initial must start and end with an English letter to be valid.
  • Trophies must be won while online to be valid.
  • Progress will update once trophies are scanned onto the site.

What are the prizes for the TT Link Frog Community Challenge?

There is a leaderboard that will track the chains, with prizes going to the top 3 longest.
  • 3rd Place: Badge on your profile page and three months of TT Pro
  • 2nd Place: Badge on your profile page and six months of TT Pro
  • 1st Place: Badge on your profile page and one year of TT Pro
If there is a tie on the chain length the person with the highest ratio trophy unlocked throughout their chain will be deemed the winner.
