Lots of fun!!

11 complete collections, minus 5 knights = 1075
27 components between the two sims = 2.35

1075 x 2.35 = 2526

I have to confess I've reverted back to playing The Sims 2 nonstop thanks to its amazing replayability factor with new found custom content and mods. ;D

Nevertheless, in spit of overall gameplay lacking imo, there's something to be said for collecting in the Sims 4 and how addictive it got the more I played. Once I got my legacy version up and running on the PC (lots of fiddling), I got the following:

5 collections completed, minus 4 knights = 480
Colette Tore and Cole Hector got 28 components between them = 2.4

480 x 2.4 = 1152

Will be interested to hear the winning strategies given seemingly luck of the draw prevented me from completing a couple and getting some done super quick.

Also I'll be playing on the PS4 version in the next challenge, I hope that's allowed.

My Sims finished 4 collections minus one knight = 395.
They completed 2 aspiration levels for a multiplier of 1.1
395 x 1.1 = 434 points total.

Hope everyone had fun.

My Sims finished with 14 collections using a total of 3 knights = 1400 - 15 = 1385
They completed 40 aspiration levels total for a multiplier of 3
1385 x 3 = 4155 points total.

Awesome challenge @LenaLJ

10 complete collections with 4 knights 1000 minus 20 for 4 knights equals 980
Am 2.40
Total 2352

I thought I liked collecting it turns out I do not lol. I gave up halfway through week 2 and cannot make myself play again so I'm posting what I managed to complete. The last two collections i was working on can remain uncollected.

I laughed at that. :) I do not know how many events we have had over the years where you and I have finished right next to each other — I've lost count.

Wow, only 45 minutes till midnight! I think I've never been that close to a challenge deadline... :D

17 complete collections = 17 X 100 = 1700 pts
6 Knights of the Octagon Table = 1700-30 = 1670 pts
Milestones completed = 40

AM = 1.00 + (40 components X .05) = 1.00 + 2.00 = 3.00
Total = 1670 X 3.00 = 5,010 points

Still working on an it issue for work. so better turn this in now before time runs away.

15 completed collections with 5 knight’s bought
40 aspiration levels complete.

Math is a bit hard for me right now but hope this is right.

1465*3 = 4395

You got the 3.00 right, but it's 1475.

Eden Jaar & Milo Jewell suffered heavily from overambition and my lack of foresight, even if they had some utterly ridiculous wheezes up their sleeves when it came to getting certain items. In the end, they were defeated by a very silly sequence of events that occurred in their final 24 hours... well, okay, plus a whole heap of other things, the RNG chief amongst them, but seriously. It's like the game was punishing me for playing down to the wire, I swear. Their final score is both hilarious and mildly frustrating:

17 complete collections requiring 7 knights = 1700 - (7 x 5) = 1665
20 aspiration tiers each => a multiplier of 1 + (20 x 0.05) = 3
Total: 1665 x 3 = 4995

(so yeah well done Nikitachi for needing one knight less than me!)

This event is now closed.

Congratulations to Nikitachi on a solid win. It ended up being a very close fight with Sruixan a mere knight's worth of points behind. Everyone is now free to discuss strategy. My thanks to Lena for coming up with the idea for this event.

Thank you!

I may take a day or so to write my strategy, sorry for that.
