What is a contest?

Post by GoldenEye » 02.05.2010, 16:12

What is a contest?

This is a special event that occurs about twice a month.
It is not easy to discribe this phenomenom.

Maybe you want to read this article that was first published in the KapiTimes, issue 89.

[quote]The Fascination of a Contest

It is one of the most fascinating and unpredictable elements of Kapilands. It is an extra feature and not an entire part of the game but still a phenomenon. It is extremely expensive yet still takes more and more money from its participants: It is a contest.

But what does this mean? We all are in a permanent contest, aren

How can I take part in a contest?

How can I take part in a contest?

Send the required contest product in the right quality to the company "contest", as if you were sending a contract to another player. The price is shown on the right. Send as many contracts as you like, in order to achieve a higher ranking.

After sending a contract, your ranking will be shown in the stats/contest. The stats also show when the contest will end (date and exact time). Additionally there is a countdown that shows you how many hours are left until the contest ends.

Each rank listed here will get the stated prizes:

1st rank --> Golden medal
2nd rank --> Silver medal
3rd rank --> Bronze medal
4th rank --> 5 Contest certificates
5th rank --> 4 Contest certificates
6th-10th rank --> 3 Contest certificates
11th -20th rank --> 2 Contest certificates
21st-100th rank --> 1 Contest certificate

Of course, these status symbols also give points allocated as follows:

Gold Medal --> 300 points
Silver Medal --> 200 points
Bronze Medal --> 100 points
Contest Certificate --> 10 points

(This can also be seen in the KapiTimes as there is a more detailed explanation.)

I placed in the Top 100 and still have no prize. Why?

The prizes for the contest will be sent out when the new contest starts.
So please be a bit patient, you will get your prize.

Who can tell me the current contest-product?

Who can tell me the current contest-product?

The contest is a part of the KapiTimes, our Kapilands-newspaper.
So you can always read all necessary information about the contest in the newspaper.

Important: Sometimes there is a quiz contest where the contest product is not obvious but hidden. Please do yourself a favour and do not tell others about the contest product, simply use that knowledge for your own. :)

How are the contest products chosen?

The KapiTimes-editor in charge is in charge of chosing a contest product, quality and price for each contest.

Where did my contest prize go to?

Where did my contest prize go to?

As a Contest Certificate, or CC, or any contest medal is a status symbol it got stored with your status symbols (Warehouse > Status store > contest prize).
