2019 Mid-Season Major: Striving for Major Achievements

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Goal
As you probably guessed from this event's title, it's all about racking up a large achievement score. We're trying to keep bans to a minimum given that would limit everyone on seeking the most achievements.




General Challenge Rules

Specific Challenge Rules
  • Create 1 Young Adult Sim, all life states allowed.
  • No limitations on household additions or moving.
  • If your original Sim dies then you are done with the challenge. Post in this thread that you are DNF.
  • You are allowed to use the Buydebug cheat for the sole purpose of purchasing a satellite to prevent abductions.
  • The team is requiring all participants to write down all achievements and their value to make sure everything adds up if questions arise.
  • This challenge concludes at Week 3, Day 1, 8 AM.




Scoring
Achievement Points — When it's time to stop playing (Week 3, Day 1, 8 AM), immediately pause your game and go to Options > Achievements and note your total score accumulated. Please take a screenshot indicating the amount in case the challenge team needs verification. Do not include the screenshot when you post your score in this thread.

Ch-Ch-Changes
The team does not want to edit and make changes to the ruleset once this event goes live, but we may have to. If an exploit is brought to our attention or we discover something else we may ask affected players to redo their effort.

Have Questions?
Please think hard before you ask in the challenge thread because it may be strategy. What you may consider an innocent question could cause another player to go — “oh, I did not think of doing that.” It’s always safer to PM everyone on the team (Metro, MarianT, sdhoey, and LenaLJ) for clarifications. Thanks.

And the Winner is...
After this event has closed everyone is encouraged to discuss how they approached the event, but the winner is expected to do so in detail.

Rainbow Dash -- yes, to both of your questions. Please try and remember that asking certain types of questions in the challenge thread itself is going to give others ideas they may not have thought of.

Sorry, I didn't really think of them being strategies to be honest as the rules are different this time around so it's a little weird lol.  :-\ It's a good weird though, I like it!  :D

In the scoring section it says that when you age up to adult you should determine your score but recently this was changed to Week 3 Day 1 at 8:00 am.

Scoring
Achievement Points — When your Sim ages up to Adult, immediately pause your game and go to Options > Achievements and note your total score accumulated.

This should match the new rules.

  • No limitations on household additions or moving.
- Are we allowed to add sims in CAS from the beginning,when creating our challenger ?
-Are we allowed to add sims by using "manage households",or do we  have to ask them to move in?

You create only one Sim in CAS. After that, how you add Sims is up to you.

Although there are no restrictions with moving and adding people must we stick with our original Sim throughout? Or just make sure they're kept alive?

Achievements are tracked per household, not per individual Sim, so you'd have to maintain a consistent household and not jump to another one.

OK someone has to go first.

Final score is 2555

Some annoying glitches, and my bad planning, meant I missed out on some points I thought I'd get, but over all this was a really interesting experience. Very different.

Final Score is 2280.  I thought I had a good strategy but it got lost in the execution.  Lots of mistakes made.

But, what would Bob Ross say? "We don't make mistakes. We make happy accidents."
