Sonic Generations Challenges!
« on: March 11, 2012, 05:19:39 AM »
Inspired by the original series for SA2B

This is a bit of a wild shot in the dark, as it has been literally years since we had a successful one of these; but I'm hoping the fact that Generations is a) new, b) good and c) has quickly garnered a lot of competition here compared to most recent releases, means that we can get one of these threads rolling and have some good old fashioned fun. Any and all players of all skill levels are welcome to participate! Naturally this is a competition, but the aim above all, as mentioned, is to have some fun.

Competition rules
(These are basically copied from the above topic, so if you read those, feel free to skip this section.)

These challenges will have you performing various, unconventional tasks within levels. According to how well you do, you are assigned a letter rank and then awarded a number of points. There are two types of challenge: Fixed Rank and Competition. Fixed Rank has set boundaries for each Grade, whilst Competition is an 'every-man-for-himself' type affair, where the best player gets the top rank.

Point allocation for grades are as follows:

S: 5 Points
A: 4 Points
B: 3 Points
C: 2 Points
D: 1 Point
E: 0 Points

Challenge Rules

All challenges are to strict deadlines, no allowances will be made unless a genuine reason is given in advance. For example, Player A will be out of town for a week, and will miss a challenge. If they inform me in advance, they can have a little extra time after the deadline of the challenge to 'catch up' and do the challenge. No other exceptions will be made. You have been warned.

Challenges will last for exactly four days after the time of posting; the exception is this first challenge, which will last for seven days instead.

Challenges will typically have participants perform X, with various restrictions. Naturally, breaching these restrictions invalidates the stat.

Submissions and Formating

Submissions can be made either in the thread, or PM'd to me if you want to keep your stat a secret until the deadline (but why would you do that, really?)

While not strictly necessary to do, it is helpful to me if you post your stats in the thread with the following formatting for Fixed Rank Challenges:

Username
Stat
Stat2 (if required)
Rank

And the following formatting for Competition Challenges:

Username
Stat
Stat2 (if required)

Providing Proof

Providing proof of your accomplishments with regards to these challenges is not necessary. Generations is not an easily recordable game, and TSC has a strong history with using the honour system with regards to submissions. Just to reiterate, you are NOT required to post picture/video proof of your challenge stats, however, feel free to do so if it takes your fancy! (I will be for fun :P)

I think that pretty much covers it all, if anyone has any questions, feel free to post them, and so without further ado, here is the first challenge:

Challenge #1: Green Hill Classic - Sk8 Edition

 - Complete Green Hill Classic as fast as possible with the following restrictions:

 - You must have the Boardmaster skill equipped.
 - You must activate the skill as soon as the level starts.
 - You must remain on the skateboard until after you reach the red spring that launches Sonic to the wooden loop that leads into the final section. Losing the skateboard before this point in the level caps your rank for the run to a maximum of a B. For additional clarification, this is the spring next to the Crabmeat, and just after two ring monitors and one life monitor. Extra note, you can go over the top and miss that spring entirely, and your stat is fine.

Ranks

S Rank: Finish in under 1 minute.
A Rank: Finish in under 1 minute 5 seconds.
B Rank: Finish in under 1 minutes 10 seconds.
C Rank: Finish in under 1 minutes 20 seconds.
D Rank: Finish in under 1 minutes 35 seconds.
E Rank: Anything over 1 minutes 35 seconds.

The deadline for this challenge is exactly one week from the posting time of this post, and I will add submitted stats, as well as the rankings to this post when appropriate.

afolita

Also, I tested this challenge on console and went over the top route without losing the board and finished in under a minute on the first go. I then tried to record this on PC, and the jump from the spring is insanely hard, so I altered the challenge rule slightly so as to make it easier; I didn't intend on the first challenge being retardedly hard, sorry about that :(

Just a reminder to all would be entrants that there is just over three days remaining for this challenge!

Also, cryptic clue for the next challenge:

The servers are the seven Chaos
Chaos is power
Power is enriched by the heart
The controller is the one that unifies the Chaos

Speaking of time, would you guys prefer if challenges started lasting for four days from this point on, as originally intended, or would you prefer if each one lasted for a week?

THE CHOICE IS YOURS

The second one looks like one I could do, since I've been messing around with the Super Sonic skill a lot.
