When a calendar year is completed and the year number ticks over, the top fifty ranked players in the weekly tournaments qualify to compete in our annual championships.
Unlike the weeklies or the general training quizzes, everyone takes the five advanced quizzes in their technology at the same time around the world. Players have up to 35-45 minutes (determined by the quiz master for that technology) to submit their answers.
The Dev Gym then published the rankings and hands out awards for top-10 placements.
Instructions for Taking the Championship
Unlike weekly tournament quizzes, you have a limited amount of time to answer championship quizzes. The time limit is displayed on the launch page. Once you start playing, the countdown timer will tell you how much time you have left (if the timer is not displayed on the main page, open the right-hand sidebar to see it there).
Since this competition has more than one quiz in it, you must answer each quiz before you can submit your answer as a whole; until you submit the answers, you can change any answer to an individual quiz. You can answer the quizzes in the order they are presented by clicking on Next button after selecting the choices you believe are correct. You can also go directly to a quiz by clicking on the "Quiz N" link at the top of the page.
If you have answered that quiz, the circle above the "Quiz N" link will have a check in it.
Each time you navigate between quizzes in the competition, your selections will be saved. If you lose your connection or you run out of time, answers to the individual quizzes will be preserved.
Ranking is determined using the standard scoring algorithm: correctness and time to answer are both a factor in your ranking.
Shortly after the championship is completed, you will receive an email inviting you to review quizzes for any possible mistakes. Once any objections are resolved, you will receive an email to review rankings. Assuming no objections on ranking, we will then publish the results.
