Ack… :) That was my problem. We're all good now.

Note to everyone: I have already needed to give permission to two different players to either go back to an earlier save or completely restart due to opponent issues. Please do not wait until the last minute to do this event in case the team needs to give you another case due to bugs.

No worries, Metro! You and the rest of the team are awesome -- thanks for all you do to make these challenges so fun. I hate to admit it, but I'm kinda sad that Sims 4 is coming out and the Sims 3 challenges are coming to an end this year  :'(

Fear not. The team will be taking a break once this season is over to get familiar with Sims 4 to bring everyone a brand new Sims 4 Tournament Jan 1 (fingers crossed).

Is this the bug where you opponent will not show up or is there another work around for if that happens?

I've experienced the bug on my practice file.  Is their a way to solve it or is it just a case of restarting until it doesn't happen?

I remember when the first Grandmaster Challenge came out, I read the title as Grandmother Quan's Challenge.  I thought that meant everyone had to play an elder female.  I read more carefully this time.

ratchie is right, you can't just restart without the team's permission. PM the team please with specifics.

You're right! I used PM for the first vacation time instead of AM, so with the correct input I got the same result as you. Thanks for checking the results!

I definitely had some roadblocks I had to deal with like other players. Ugh. Bruce Lee still was able to finish.

Town Time: Week 1, Day 6 12:23 AM

Vacation 1 Day 4 9:09 PM
Vacation 2 Day 5 10:33 AM

7463 + 11742 = 19205

I think I did better three years ago. Not sure. Maybe if I change the leader board with my score from three years ago no one will notice. Wait…did I say that out loud? Lol.
