Event Challenges

The event launched with six challenges initially and you can view the details of these here. The final three challenges are as follows:

Challenges
Speed Skating
Earn as much GamerScore as possible within 2 hours — this will activate AFTER clicking the start challenge button and only achievements earned within the following two hours will count.

After the two hours is up you can click the end challenge button to officially complete the challenge and appear on the leaderboard.

The leaderboard is ranked by the person with the most GamerScore earned within their two hour time period.

Challenges
Half Pipe
Unlock 10 achievements, the first with the lowest ratio possible, the next with the highest ratio possible, and so on - the goal is to attain the highest cumulative total of ratio difference.

Achievement 1: 1.0 ratio
Achievement 2: 5.0 ratio - total difference is now 4.0
Achievement 3: 2.0 ratio - total difference is now 7.0
Achievement 4: 9.0 ratio - total difference is now 14.0
etc..

The leaderboard is ranked by the person with the largest difference and then by fastest to complete.

Challenges
Curling
Earn 8 achievements with a cumulative TrueAchievement points total of 2018. The leaderboard is ranked by the person closest to 2018 (this could be +/-) and then by fastest to complete - and uses the TrueAchievement value at time of scan; ie:

Gamer 1: 2018 TA - Time 1 hour
Gamer 2: 2000 TA - Time 2 hours
Gamer 3: 2036 TA - Time 3 hours

Disclaimer
As you can imagine, there is an awful lot of new code for this event. We've done our best to test everything, but it's very difficult to recreate the situations caused by all of the achievements being unlocked by the thousands of competitors.

We'll be on hand to fix issues as they occur, but please be patient if you notice anything not working as expected, and please let us know in the discussion thread.
