A Contest Of The Gods
Four times a year, for many years, a great showdown before the gods begin. The Houses, Divisions and individual members battle it out in a show of strength, with glory, power and prestige showered upon those who best their opponents. The theme of each competition varies, including contests in most reputation, recruits, posts, events attended and so on.
The month of June 2020, is the Event Attendance challenge
So what are the Stakes?
+ House of the Year - 4 Points
+ Top of the House Sort Order
House of the Year - 2019 final scores:
House of the Year is a cumulative score of the triumphs obtained my officers and members for their house throughout the year. Triumphs are obtained by doing something truly great, such as winning Valhalla League, graduating a new Division, or beating 30+ other Divisions in a contest like this. All of these achievements go towards House of the Year standings.
Members who have been in the winning House for 6+ months at the end of the year, earn the extremely prestigious:
House of the Year award
Scoring will be based on the House Standings, which uses total event attendance plus the competitive event attendance to calculate a division or house's total score. Ratios will be used, putting houses with fewer members on more even footing with larger houses.
The Vanquisher triumph is worth 5 points towards the House of the Year leaderboard, and a prestigious triumph that is only awarded four times a year. The Best Division Medal is another award that is only awarded four times a year, and considered extremely prestigious by members.
Scoring will be based on the Division Standings, and will use the raw events attended + competitive activity numbers from each Division (not ratios) for the month of June. This allows every division to participate, including seeds. For example, a division with 100 events attended and 20 competitive events attended will have a total score of 120.
Individual members who perform the best, will be awarded based on their position in the member standings.
Scoring will be based on the Member Standings, and will use the raw events attended + competitive activity numbers for each individual for the month of June.
- I am an Initiate - can I still participate?
Yes! and you should!
- When does the scoring end?
When the standings reset at the end of the month. I think it is midnight of the last day, but don't quote me.
- If my Division wins, will everyone get the Best Division Medal?
Only members and initiates who helped their Division win will be eligible. This is defined by getting at least 20+ events attended this month.
Feel free to ask any questions!
Remember, Odin is watching.
