Submissions are opened for tomorrow too (if you just decide to particiate lately) but all games still must be started and mastered in november. I'm too exhaused right now to calculate the results so you have one more day to deicde submit the data.

almost mastered Snowboard Kids 2 but ran out of time.

My submition:
400 (526)

For december to participate you should master the game started before this month.
One bonus will be to master some game first (+100% of game points and retro points)
Another bonus is finish set/revisions developing started before this month until XMAS (get the set points transferred to category B as if you mastered it. Example. Set worth 500 points and 750 reptopoints. This is what will you get for finishing development in time. Mastering your own set gives you normal amount of points and retro points. In total: 1000 points to category B, 750 to caterogy C).

*Decap Attack and Escape from Atlantis were revisioned so I will count achievement count, total set points and total retro points (approximately) before revisions were made. Escape from Atlantis though was started and finished in October so this game con't counts anyway.
* submitted a lot of games started and finished in October. But October is a finishing month so I can count only AotW games and "first to master" games (but without bonus) and other games started before October.
* awarded by double points for categories B and C for mastering first!
* mastered , and first! But all these games was started in October and are invalid entries to submit. But I decided to qualify these games without bonus. Like, 0 points + 100% of game points as bonus.
* mastered first! But this game was started in October and is invalid entry to submit. But I decided to qualify these games without bonus. Like, 0 points + 100% of game points as bonus.

Idea of "first to master" is being the one who mastered hard game that was unmastered for some time, not just master fresh game or even meme set.

I can not qualify at all. All his games were started during December but this is a finishing month.

Still 32 hours left for anyone who want to submit the results.

I guess this month switch causes too much confusion so I'll allow more freedom in next year. Separate topic will be created.

Posted: 02 Jan, 2020 19:01
The formula of the event seems to be a bit worn... Most of the former winners seem to have no motivation to continue participating. That is normal for long events, such as Challenge League. Maybe taking a break and returning after a while with different rules (and maybe badges, if the rules are consistent enough) could be a good alternative.

Posted: 02 Jan, 2020 23:17
I agree with Hotscrock, this event is saturated and a break would be beneficial for the event and the players. Returning with badges would be a good incentive too, I would definitely participate again.

Posted: 04 Jan, 2020 03:59
I think the event should be "simplified" and drop the "a game must be started not in the month it was mastered"-rule. I.E. only a "mastered"-month should matter.
