NEWBIESPLAYGROUND Unreal Contest 2020
 

DATE: 10th of April to 19th of April 2020 :  SinglePlayer Contest
DATE: 10th of April to 19th of April 2020 :  Coop Contest



Hi to all fragtastic Unreal players!

NEWBIESPLAYGROUND has organised a special SinglePlayer and Coop Contest for the 2020 Easter period and we would like to take this opportunity to invite all players to participate in either or both of these events.

In these challenging, thought-provoking and enlightening times, we think this is a great time for all Unreal players to gather together and unite and enjoy some friendly competition in a peaceful, relaxing environment.

The selection of maps will be as follows :-


SinglePlayer Contest

  • Dig (Rrajigar Mine)  -  Author: Cliff Bleszinski
  • MPNeveC (MP Neve’s Crossing) - Author: Nivlek
  • MPSpireland (MP-Spire Valley) - Author: Nivlek / Pancho

Coop Contest

  • Skaarj Tower - Author: Andrew "Drew" Ross

So polish your ASMD, scrape the rust from your FlakCannon, pick up that heavy EightBall and head over to the servers, where you will be most welcome!

Servers are available right now for some online practice, prior to the start of the contest on April 10th.

For much more detailed information and the current scoreboard, please see:

WooF!

This is just a reminder to all players who enter the SinglePlayer Contest..

Each player can have 3 contest matches (StartMatch), one match on each of the 3 servers.

SP CONTEST [1]
SP CONTEST [2]
SP CONTEST [3]

Players can of course have as many TrialMatches as they would like on any of the 3 servers.

The SinglePlayer contest is heating up nicely now with some great runs!

Currently, [-{·E·}-]TommY heads the Scoreboard with his fantastic time. Congratulations to him for that great run!

The NEWBIESPLAYGROUND Unreal Contest 2020 is now over!

We would like say thank you to all participants and visitors who joined the servers for this event and also those who wanted to join but were prevented from doing so for whatever reason. The Contest was held with all of us in good spirits and I am sure we all got to know each other a little better and learned a few things about ourselves and others along the way.

First of all,

Congratulations to the winner of the SinglePlayer Contest : "[-{·E·}-]TommY" and his winning Contest run with a score of 93 in a time of 00:24:54. He set this benchmark time early in the Contest and it was never overtaken, so many congratulations to him on his thoroughly deserved victory!

Congratulations to the "FlipFlopsTeam" who were the winners of the Coop Contest : "Nikola-(DOG)-, strategy-(DOG)- and VooDoo-(DOG)- with their score of 438 in a time of 01:45:38!

There were many great trialmatches also with great scores and times and these moments were also enjoyed and noted, but of course only the actual Contest runs can count.

Please see the Scoreboard for the final rankings.

I'd like to thank the Newbies' Admins who spent a lot of their time on the servers who helped players go for their trial matches and runs and offered support to others, in particular to Nikola-(DOG)-, PMX-(DOG)- and MrC-(DOG)-. I would particularly like to thank Nikola-(DOG)-, whose never-ending enthusiasm, kindness to others and devotion to all aspects of the game is a real inspiration.

I would personally like to thank Masterkent who wrote the custom Contest GameType, because without this, the Contest would not have even been possible! Thank you.

Lastly, but definitely not leastly, I think we should all thank strategy-(DOG)- whose commitment to hosting these types of events and his work involved in all of this is also a real inspiration and without who, this would not be possible.

We hope that all of you had great fun and of course we hope to see you all again when the next event is held! :dog:

WooF!
