The TRF Annual Quiz: 2009




Ladies and Germs, after a bit of a break, we're back for more. Racked our brains we have to find the fun, the interesting, the difficult. You're skills will be put to the test.

The outcome: Victory.
The rewards: Bragging rights and more ;)

For those of you who were not a part of this last time, details of the rules follow below. Those of you who enjoyed (or loathed) the quiz last time, please read the rules again - there have been a couple of changes ;)

Note: This thread is for submitting your name and general rules queries. Please don't use this as an excuse to spam endlessly about how great/dreadful it was last time:p Moderators and admin are barred from entry.

The Teams

http://i9.************/680ugqc.jpgThe Pistols

http://i11.************/6gcb6aa.jpg The Backpacks


http://i16.************/6693pzp.jpg The Braids

http://i11.************/4tqvgvq.jpg The Flares

http://i19.************/66m5k7o.jpgThe Artefacts



Obviously, depending on how many people actually enter, a ninth team may need to be created to balance the numbers out.

Anyone wishing to take part in this years' event may submit their name here. The closing date for entries is Tuesday 17th of March at 17:00pm GMT. Entrants will be randomly allocated to each team, with final team numbers being as balanced as possible (see note about ninth team above).


The Rules

There are seven categories, each with twelve questions. The topics include Tomb Raider (of course :cln:), music, video games, science, history/political science and movies. Difficulty varies, so chat with your team mates before giving an answer!



A change from last time, the winning team will then go head to head against themselves in a final round of difficult questions that will require some researching skills. Don't worry, all of the answers can be found on the internet. :) The winner of the final round will receive a DVD of our choosing and some Lara Croft material curiosity of tlr online.




Answer submissions will be posted in the questions/answers thread. The thread is for team members to post their answers. While we do encourage people to discuss, no hints, advice or answers from non players may be given. This is meant to be a friendly competition so please don't spoil it for everyone else. Also, it is recommended that each team have a team leader to avoid confusion when posting answers.




The categories will be released one at a time. Once released, teams will have 24 hours to submit their answers before the topic closes. Any answers submitted after the cut-off time will be ignored. At the end of the 24 hours, we'll post the answers to the round along with the questions to the next round and the updated scores.



Utilize any means you have at your disposal to find the answers (library, teachers, internet, etc)




When submitting an answer, please indicate which question is being answered either by quoting the question or by giving the question number.



Please note that only one answer per team will be accepted! Only the one posted first will be accepted. Teams are therefore strongly encouraged to confer before submitting their team answer.



Remember, the judges’ decision is final. If you have any questions (apart from what the correct answers are!), please contact one of the moderators or Jackles, Gabi and myself.



One correct question is worth one point Questions requiring two or more answers will be worth one point per answer.




Good luck Raiders!

The Timetable

The first round will open at 20:00pm GMT on Tuesday the 17th. As mentioned, you will have 24 hours to put forth your submission. After the 24 hour period is reached, the next phase will begin though in some cases, there may be a delay as we do have lives that sometimes interfere here.

After the final round of stage one has been completed and the winning team is announced, stage two will begin with 24 hours for your answers to be submitted.

Please refer to this thread for any possible changes or updates to the rules or time line.


Remember to give a big thanks to all the mods whom have worked hard to make this happen. :)

Seven rounds for the first part. 24 hours per round so that's seven days. The final round is dependent on which team makes it. That team will go head to head for another 24 hour round.

Besides, it's me and Neteru that's picking the DVD. So no worries there. :)

spikejones
14-03-09, 18:12
sounds interesting... 2 things need clearing up before I join definitely:

A) with such a large international representation - if only 24 hours are given for a team to confer and come to a decision on a particular question, we may not all be online at the same time - what if we get placed into teams where the membership is spread to far around the globe for some of the members to be a part of the discussion?

B) I noticed you said research is required for some of the answers - does that mean that we don't necessarily have to have played most/all of the games?

Mr.Burns
14-03-09, 18:19
The selection process is randomized so there is always a possibility that what you describe could happen Spike. if something like that does happen, we'll take it into consideration and make changes if we need to. However, the way it worked last time was each team would take a consensus. If the 24 hour period was almost up and no one had a finalize answer to give, then whomever was keeping track would post what they have. It's better to post something than nothing at all.

Well, yes, given the fact that a lot of people these days do not know how to do a proper search on the internet or library, that is what we are referring to. However the questions for the final round are designed to be not horribly difficult to the point that an understanding of partical physics or calculus is needed, but hard enough that the answers, while they are out there, will require some good digging around.

spikejones

so again.. I don't have to have played all the games ie.. is there going to be a question like:

"after goobledygock dies in TRx, what does fuddyduddykins say?"

cuz I don't think I could answer that

Larson_1988
14-03-09, 18:29
I'd gladly join the quiz if i had a computer, i'm still using my PS3 to browse the internet with. Meaning i'm not in.

Good luck to everyone. :)

Mr.Burns
14-03-09, 18:31
@Spike: It's not just TR related but yes, there are some questions similar to that. Remember that there are two Tomb Raider rounds, then separate rounds for history/political science, Movies, Music, Science, non TR video games and then the final round which will include some very difficult TR questions, among other things. Regardless, I'd still give it a try. As a team, you'll have to work together, so you all should be able to figure things out. :)

you might not be able to...but a team member might!!you don't have to answer all the questions...that's why it's a team effort!!:p

chances are more than good that you'll have a team member that has played all the games!!:p

There has been a slight change of plan:
In the opening post Mr.Burns mentioned that the competition would begin tonight at 20:00pm GMT.
Taking into consideration that members are from different timezones we have decided to delay the start until tomorrow, Wednesday the 18th, 20:00 GMT, thus giving the participants the opportunity to get organised - contact each other (add to friends list maybe?), decide on their strategies and chose a possible team leader.

This thread is now open again for further questions and comments.

It is a team effort Saki, you will need to confer with your team mates, and there will be time allowed to do research. The best way is to find a team leader who will be around to pm the answers in, prior to this you will have had time to talk to each other. So if you are not online when the questions are posted there will be time to read them and get them in. :)

To clarify: The competition starts tomorrow, Wednesday, 18th at 20:00 GMT. At this time the first set of questions will be released. After that the teams have 24 hours to submit their answers in the thread.
Have a look at this (http://www.tombraiderforums.com/showpost.php?p=3526630&postcount=1) again, especially "The Rules".
Every team will have to work out a strategy/schedule that works best for them, taking into account the various circumstances of their members. Using the pm-system and profile messages might be helpful.

I don't know why you are whining, that's the way we Americans do spell it. I though it was British to spell it artefacts. Or perhaps that is just old English?

I guess it's just a less common spelling. To be fair, a lot of American spellings make more sense than their British counterparts. We tend to have an awful lot of silent letters over here and the American versions are simplifications of those. :o

Anyway... :off:

But I don't really get it. Won't the other teams be able to view your answers when you have posted them in the thread (and copy them)? :confused:

Am I missing something? :o

Well, maybe you should wait until the deadline is almost reached before posting.
And you don't know whether the other teams have got it right, do you? So you might be copying and pasting their mistakes, thus losing points. :p

Oh I know that, I just thought it was a good point. But as Gabi said, we can't be sure that opponent teams have it right, so no failburgers for the mods. :D
