Chip Cup 2016 and Beyond

Recommended Posts

Welcome to the Chip Cup 2016! This is where you will find the accumulated points from any competitions members have entered this year. At the end of the season, the person with the most points is awarded the prestigious Chip Cup!

The points for previous Chip Cups have been collected in this other thread, but there is a lot of information there now, so it's good to split some of these newer things into its own thread.

UPDATE: The Chip Cup points for 2017, 2018, and even 2019 are (or will be) posted further in the thread. Check them out!

Possible upcoming competitions:

 

Looks like we have some ideas lined up for 2017...

Sometime 2016 Challenge - neglected puzzles
Some pretty tough levels to face in this one.  :teeth: (should run when CCLP4 voting is over)
 
Summer 2016 Create Challenge - Tight Stuff
Let's see if we can get this started at some point ;) If not, I'll keep it in my back pocket for the right time...

 
September 2016 Survival Competition
Lessinath has a level ready for us to go, but let's not waste it over the summer. (must not forget this next year!)
 
Sometime 2017 Create Competition
The second CC2 create is just waiting to happen...

 

Sometime 2017 Time Trial
Here's another potential IHNN reservation. We haven't really explored a heavily random TT set yet, and I think there's some potential to explore here. Besides, it's spooky, like the holiday, and a shorter time of entry prevents as much grinding for perfection.
 
Sometime 2017 Time Trial
Just reserving this spot to force myself to make some more levels. (have made levels; will use them soon)

 

 

 

-----
Was kind of collecting my thoughts for a long while, here are some of them for later use
.... will/might/did edit this post later to fill in more stuff.....

-could add some rules about the Chip Cup, like if there are not enough competitions, it may be extended to 2017
-need some place to post summary of all the threads that exist that are summaries of old stuff
-could also list the previous winners of the Chip Cup in a neat list
-other stuff?? PM me your suggestions for how to improve the competitions and documentation :)

-yes, let's give CC2 a chance this time.
-let's concentrate on getting a couple holiday themed comps done as well
-if there are 10+ comps this year, the season doesn't need to continue over to 2017 (which is (now not!) looking to be the case)
-if you have an idea or level for a competition, get in touch and let's make it work!
-great to see so many ideas that weren't used this year that can carry over to next!

The first big question that would need answering is: CC2 competitions, yes or no? I'm leaning towards yes since the game has been around for a while, is easily obtainable and it'd be consistent throughout the year.

 

Secondly: There's been a grand total of 3 competitions since I've joined that haven't been Time Trial or Create: 1 Survival and 2 mini, one for solving (that one was great by the way) and one for storytime. The amount of Survival competitions seems right, but Treasure Hunts should definitely be done more often (CC2 is ripe for this opportunity with score for Treasure and time for Time Trial). Holiday competitions have also been nonexistent, though I'm not sure what the best thing to do about that is.

I am going to be hosting a CC2 competition next month, as I see no reason why we can't host them.

Oh, of course they can be hosted. The main question would be how the points count (separate from CC1? Together? CC2 exclusively? CC2 comps don't count?) I just recall last year that it was leaned against just because it would be a change halfway through the year, instead of consistent throughout.

 

Still leaning towards yes they count with the points for CC1 & CC2 going together, just because I don't think there will be enough to have a satisfying competition for one/both games if the points aren't counted together.

A funny thing happened with the Chip Cup 2016 points, as Jeffrey and I tied for the win with 101 points. Then a funny thing happened, when I later went back and checked those calculations, and noticed that I actually had 102 points. I let it go, as the results were already announced and over a year old. Then a funny thing happened today as I decided to check the 2016 scores again, but this time I got 101 points for both of us again. I tried looking through the threads if I missed a bonus score of some sort but couldn't find it. I guess I was simply mistaken in my calculations on the second pass at the scores.

I bring all that up now because a funny thing happened with the Chip Cup 2017 scores. I thought it was finally time to calculate who won the Chip Cup in 2017. It was a close race with the same culprits, and I piled up the scores to discover a new tie at 96 points. Yes, both Jeffrey and I were tied again for the Chip Cup! But then a funny things happened. I noticed that in the May 2017 Create Competition, some players were awarded the wrong amount of points. Instead of a scheme of 15,12,10,8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1,1,1... the seven point position was omitted and five players were awarded one points less than was intended. I could leave that as was announced if it only affected myself, but I don't think it would be fair for the other four participants, so I would rather fix the mistake. I guess that leaves me as the sole winner of the 2017 Chip Cup! Yay! But wait, a funny thing happened. I hadn't calculated the Early Bird bonuses yet. These were an extra Chip Cup point that debuted in 2017 for sending in a submission way ahead of the deadline. Jeffrey had two of these and I had only one. Yes, after checking all the scores, we are tied for the Chip Cup of 2017 at 98 points each. Funny things happen :)

Below is a summary of all the competitions for 2017 and their Chip Cup points, and the ranking for the participants for the whole year. (V is for untied victory, W is for a tied win, much like + and + were used in older lists.)
