20 Week Breeding Challenge: 2020 - has ended!

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Sorry I am a bit late getting this up. I meant to use the same timetable as last year, but I guess I got a bit distracted by the pandemic.

Anyway, I am hoping we will still have time to gather participants and get it started! So without further ado...

 

Welcome to the 20-Week Breeding Challenge: 2020 edition!

 

What is the Challenge, you ask? 

Starting Sunday, May 24, 2020 we will be competing to see who can create the longest lineage (with a cohesive pattern) in a 20 week time period.  The challenge will end on October 10, 2020.

 

Why 20 weeks?

It seems a good length of time to build a fairly long lineage while still being able to keep people interested and engaged.

It allows us to finish before the holiday breeding madness begins.

It's a nice round number!

 

Why should you participate in the challenge? 

Good Question!

First of all because it is FUN!

Also – PRIZES! Every member who joins this project, will be offering a prize (sort of like a poker pot) at the end of this project. Prizes will be split between first, second, and third place (possibly more if we get tons of people). First place will get first pick , second gets second, and third picks third. There may also be consolation prizes for all who finish the challenge.

 

Rules (because we do need rules!):

  • All lineages must be some form of stair or spiral format.

  • One of the base starting dragons MUST have a "Stolen on" date of May 24, 2020 or later. The other dragon (its mate) may be a previously existing CB dragon. The last dragon in your line must have a “Laid on” date of October 10, 2020 or earlier in order to be counted.

  • You must create a public group for all dragons produced/used in the project.

  • All dragons in the final lineage must be on your scroll and in your group at the end of the Challenge.

  • Inbreeding will be allowed.

  • At the end of the challenge each player will be asked to contribute one prize. It can be an offspring of your challenge lineage, or anything else you choose.

 

Forms (because we need those, too!):

Why do participants have to do a stair or spiral?  I was getting excited about this project until I saw that requirement.

 

I know that EGs and other more unusual patterned lineages such as the double stair - every step gets bred to a 2g PB - would end up being fewer generations at the end of the competition, but couldn't they be allowed anyway?  Not everyone cares about winning!  🙃  For instance, I'd just like the motivation and finish-by date to actually make one of the lineages I've been thinking about for a while.

It was made that way because of the time involved to do an EG or other type of lineage. Honestly, those would have little or no chance of winning. But if you really want to enter just for fun and motivation, I can overlook that rule. Perhaps I should make it a recommendation rather than a requirement? Actually, I don't think the rule would really prohibit a double stair if that is what you are considering.

I may be about to change my start dragon; I hope that's OK, but with all the birthday stuff, as it's a single biome one, I can't catch a mate :(

 

I have done. I hope that's OK....
