I'm going into surgery Wednesday morning and will be out 3-5 days in the hospital. After I may still be a bit out of it. So its best to do a 2 weeker

Your goal? Save Stings life!

===Solo Challenge 1
Sting is having you take down a game from his childhood he never could beat, one member must beat Pitfall the Mayan Adventure for SNES
http://retroachievements.org/Achievement/32746

===Solo Challenge 2
More avenging Stings pending death. Make an achievement plan (including names) for the game Baseball for NES, finish the fight Sting died at!

===Solo Challenge 3
Just in case Sting dies he needs you to be good at Ouija Boards, I need you to spell Sting using achievements from any of these game series

Sonic, Mega Man, Bomberman, Final Fantasy, Bubble Bobble

===Solo Challenge 4
Another avenge from the past game, I need you to beat a game I never could finish Bart Vs the World on NES, rented it a lot though.
https://retroachievements.org/Achievement/75657

===Solo Challenge 5
Forget the funeral I need someone to find me a place to be buried. Find Sting a burial site

===Team Challenge 2: Get a team to operate!
Each member must track down the following, each member finds one
-A doctor
-A man good with blades
-A Nurse
-Someone who specializes in gas, poison or not.

Then each of you need some tools to operate on me, each member does one
-A blade
-We need some kind of cloth to stop the bleeding
-We need something to suck up blood or guts
-We also need to sterilize the wounds, so get some alcohol

Part of this team challenge is this making sense, your surgery team will be judged on as well here.
Reward: 1 Point for the whole team assembled, 1 point for all tools assembled

===Creative Challenge
I want your team to design the RetroAchievements Classic, a fictional preloaded system featuring the 22 best sets on the site across any systems supported. I also want you to come up with a fake box ***front and back*** for the fake system.

The challenge took about 5-6 hrs to process, we had 15 individuals take the challenge and a lot of what I planned had to be thrown out due to lack of participation.

The travelling without transportation was a mess on all teams. Zed and I believe Farao were the only one that did it without an error, and when 15 people participate I was lenient. I was lenient with almost every route because this was a hard challenge and people bailed.

If your the NFL and one team doesn't show up to the Superbowl do you cancel the game and refund the money to the biggest event, or do you improvise. You improvise, and calling audibles when half the league looked at the challenge and said too hard but 15 didn't.

Vegas was used as a starting point

I had 0 intention of awarding the shortest trip but I had a hard time awarding trips to interplanetary travel. While allowed, no one used it in a creative capacity. I could have also given Zed a point for the least crossed route (original plan).

"At this point of challenge probably top teams will earn the base challenges every week and everything will be decided at bonus."

Considering if every team was active then yes, that was always the intention. Otherwise its just aotw/aotm.

I don't have the physical energy to respond to all of this, I've tried but that's the best I got. Quit. Don't Quit. It's a personal choice.

I dont plan to quit, nor did I post this to request point recalculation. The only purpose of the post was to clarify some doubts. The remaining teams I believe, plan to go to till the end regardless of the mishaps along the way. I have nothing against deciding the league with bonus points, what worries me is the criteria. If Farao (or whoever else) was the only one to complete the route without flaws I believe that is more deserving of a bonus point than someone who simply visited Belgium for example.

I was not aware of the difficulties and the original plans who had to be changed, so I reaffirm that I am bringing this just for clarification, I dont intend to make anyone abandon the competition, because we have already lost many. As suggestion maybe would be better to extend the time of bonus point analysis. I wouldnt mind to know the results one day after for the sake of a better analysis.

About Vegas, we didnt use it as starting point. We started at the neighbor state of California then we spread to different locations and met again at Vegas later.

Since its a 2-week challenge, I will take a one week break also from the event. Already spent much time here and my weekend is almost over. Good luck on your surgery and cheers.
