Nemesis failed spectacularly when all daily points reset at 10 to midnight smile

At least we now know what happens on a tie: One player gets it, the other does not. Not quite fair - this would have to result in a double fail.

But according to the Yesterday's Scores, no one got it. Am I missing something?

...Jumped the gun again on this one. Apparently the quiz of the hour switched to the next hour after I started playing it...so it didn't score the first one I played, and I had to do it twice...bummer.

When I first checked, it did show Salami as winner and you as loser.

However now it does show everyone as losing even though I did play a quick instaquiz in the 10 mins to make sure I would have a small score to check whether scoring worked the way it should.

So complete sequence of events:

- 10 to midnight, scores reset as normal
- If anyone scored in those 10 mins, it would count
- The winner was determined correctly based on those 10 mins except for the fact that a tie resulted in a random (first started?) winner. At this point, the challenge still showed the scores of both players along with the complete/incomplete
- A few minutes later, the score display had disappeared and everything was "incomplete".

Hmmm, maybe it reset? Because Salami was definitely ahead, but now his yesterday's score shows "incomplete".

Yeah the 10min before change over definitely screwed up the scoring. I was ahead of flopsy by several thousand points...

The score reset at 10 to midnight is normal - the challenge needs to check at 23:45 or so. Or, of course, look at the "Yesterday's score" field for final results.

I never noticed when the scores changed over before, I'm not normally on this late. Why do the scores switch over at 10 'til midnight?

It doesn't work exactly at midnight because for several reasons they have to be processed on the day they actually happened. The 10 mins makes sure the score reset and everything based on it (Brains, Endurance, etc) is correctly done by the time the date flips.

I've just looked at my challenges for today and it presents me with a moral dilemma. If I do Mind Melt in casual mode (at least I read the task properly today!) my score won't count for my team because only timed mode counts for the team competition. That's a horrible choice to make, lol.

Shouldn't it just be made MM in general? NO WAY would I play MM in casual mode.

The task is to play in casual, cubs. If you don't want to doit if you ever get the task, don't. :-)


Flopsy! Do whichever you want... I think the team can manage if you play casual. :P

Flopsy, my team manages when I don't play at all. :P But then, we aren't champions defending #1 spot....

Sadly we're not no. 1 in Mind Melt and I had the top score for the team yesterday so I think I'll pass on the challenge just in case I can do it again. smile

I got credit for a difficult challenge where I shouldn't have. I only had 1 entering yesterday and after completing none of the hard challenges yesterday, today I wake up with 2! It might be a bug on the Nemesis challenge or maybe just a glitch but I shouldn't have 2 difficults completed.

However, today I got my easy and medium challenges without any problems. (score perfectly on an "average" quiz and complete a specific crossword puzzle)

triviaking -- you can ignore that. I re-ran the scoring of nemesis fixing it earlier, which double-billed you points.

Ignore Mind Melt / Daily game challenges for now. I'm rebuilding them.
