So around 200 people knocked out week one and a similar number for week 2. I assume it is percentage based or something? Does anyone far smarter than me have an indication of how many people will be able to survive past week 10? Be good to see what I should be aiming for.

2248 entrants, so what will the weekly cut-off be?
Solo side will cut 10% of the active field per period. I'll figure out teams once the remainder have been created.
Thanks for the info. Doing quick maths on that, it's quite brutal. Only about 35% of people will qualify for the community badge (Assuming I understood correctly).
...and a far smaller percentage has read either the rules OR the FAQ shock I expect some mayhem at the first elimination when folks realize this isn't TA score anymore.

Also, to correct your math, you are looking at overall registrants. The number who entered the Solo side is 2108. That will leave 817 at the start of the 10th period (or so).

Gotta last through those 10 weeks. Get that sweet Community Challenge badge up. Keep it perfected. Not many of us left now.

I should hopefully be able to hang in there for my badge to keep the perfect streak alive for them. It looks like the cutoff is going to be quite low for the first few weeks, so I should just be able to play as normal for a while, and save some of the higher ratio GamePass/GwG entries for later weeks. I really want to play the final DLC for AC:Odyssey when it comes out next week, but got to be wary of that decay!

Only problem is during Week 8 I'll be spending most of the week away in Edinburgh to catch some Fringe shows so hoping to bank some bonuses between now and then that I can use in case of emergency.

I'm anticipating that this week it'll be between 150 and 200 for the cutoff.

Can anyone link me to the various bonuses, if there is any? I know in previous years for example, the team who finished top could get a bonus, or some stuff like that.

Can’t find any info to see if there is any regular weekly bonuses up for grabs.

I am in a similar boat (just realized this was an unintentional pun, as I am going on a cruise).

I believe I have to leave on Tuesday of week 10. I don’t really like doing the preload stuff, but I will probably have to unlock preloads on Monday and use any bonuses I have accumulated.

I am sure there will be WiFi (win 10 and WP), but I don’t plan on gaming during the trip.

Got to keep that badge streak alive!

What happens when we get score from this: - Decay? Will it be ratio go-upity Decay? What about when it starts to fall again? We all now know that Decay decay = ratio go-upity. So confoosing :/
Play nice!

Thanks!

I actually meant though, was there a bonus every week for the team that finishes top etc? Are there any bonuses that aren't for everyone, but only one team can win.

I expect first negative decay as its ratio-goes-upity until it reaches its ideal zenith, then a gradual ever so slow decline of decay as Decay decays.

I love seeing fellow word-play rabbit-hole delvers, like this. My wife gets confused and annoyed when I do it in real life.

Keeping it Clean - End the scoring period with a Gamerscore evenly divisible by 1000

This refers to the team's score and not the individual scores of the teammates.
