Federation Grand Prix Time Trials YC124

The Federation Grand Prix has returned! In addition to the awesome in-game rewards you can pick up for tackling the daily challenges during the event there is an additional challenge for those of you who are particularly keen on optimizing your racing ships - the Federation Grand Prix Time Trials!

Contest Details:

  • The time trials will run from 11:00 UTC on Thursday, June 16th to 11:00 UTC on Tuesday, June 28.
  • After a capsuleer has completed each of the 3 routes as part of the untimed Federation Grand Prix live event, they will then be able to begin the repeatable Extra Lap version of the challenge. It is only these Extra Lap challenges which count towards your leaderboard times.
  • There is a separate leaderboard for each of the 3 routes - North-Eastern, South-Western and the Federation History Route
  • Each leaderboard will track the top 10 fastest times for that route. Leaderboards will be updated bi-weekly.
  • Capsuleers can appear on multiple leaderboards however only their fastest time for each route will be counted.
  • Capsuleers will be awarded points based on the final position they achieve on the leaderboard for each route. Points will be added together across different leaderboards to get a capsuleer’s Final Score.

Leaderboard Scoring:

1st Place – 25 points
2nd Place – 20 points
3rd Place – 18 points
4th Place – 15 points
5th Place – 12 points
6th Place – 10 points
7th Place – 8 points
8th Place – 6 points
9th Place – 4 points
10th Place – 2 points

Scoring example: At conclusion of the contest period a capsuleer is in 1st Place on the North-Eastern route (25 points), 3rd Place on the South-Western route (18 points) and 8th Place on the Federation History route (6 points) they will receive a Final Score of 49 points. There is a system for tie breaks.

All Capsuleers who finish in the top 10 will be awarded with special edition medals!

Even if you don’t make the final Top 10, all capsuleers who finish on the leaderboard for any routes will have their names immortalised on a monument which will be added to the Luminaire system for this and all future Federation Grand Prix events.

Rules:

  • Capsuleers are free to be as creative or as devious as they wish. If you come up with some sneaky way to shave off some precious seconds (or entire jumps) then go for it! Jump Clones, Wormholes, Conduits, Jump Bridges and even death itself are legal tactics.
  • Your time between checkpoints is tracked using our own internal methods. Only times posted by CCP on the leaderboards are considered official.
  • Only one character per human player will be eligible for the medals. We will be checking the winners list for alts. In the event we identify a competitor who has appeared multiple times on the Final Score list only the highest score attained by a character owned by that capsuleer will be counted.

It’s nice to be given the details of something starting on the 16th of June on the 21st :slight_smile:

Did someone forget to post this last week?

I was poking convict for it but it turned out he was on holiday, ty Suit for finally posting

shame there is no rewards this year tho :frowning:

Thank you for the infos, I hope everyone will have fun again this year :slight_smile:

EDIT: just got disconnected on my SW run and had a 30+ seconds warp tunnel as well, server weather doesn’t seem to be on my side today :confused:

YESSSS!!! Been waiting for this to officially return.

My final recon run for the southwest lap last night was sub 1:40:00 without any jump clones…Those times are going to be getting smashed :slight_smile:

-DPR

Wouldn’t it be nice if we had an actual ingame leaderboard system that could show this info automatically? Maybe … I don’t know … a leaderboard like the sissy pvp arena leaderboard?

This was due to cloudflare outages bro :confused: but apparently its fixed now.

Not going to name names but it is a fun fact to see at least one of those capsuleers on the boards above performed an action that granted my alt a killright on him which was sold the past few days. :blush: Small New Eden we live in. :slight_smile:

I wish we had a daily update schedule! Would me much easier to gauge if I still want to up the crazy or not…

Looks like it might have cost me a spot on the south-western route :skull:

Don’t worry too much, none of the Southwest route times are safe currently :stuck_out_tongue:

Considering that I only noticed one pretty obvious shortcut during my run I’m pretty sure you are right :sweat_smile:

yeah south west I think I have a sub 13 min route, that being said i’m not going to be around this weekend as planned to get some extra laps in, so i might just have to post my route for all to see :stuck_out_tongue:

NOOOOO don’t do it :smiley: Tell us afterwards.

I was pretty confident that my times are good enough to get me into the Top 10, now you are talking about 13 minute runs… Looking forward to see how that would work :sweat_smile:

He’s got the benefit of a good school home station to use for resets :-P. Caldari is pretty useless in this event for me :frowning:
