Glad you like it! I take some inspiration from Reddit since people come up with very unique challenges. And with the right limitations, should make the challenges more unique and not a routine vibe.

From the birth of the new month of June, YaBoyKnife takes the lead with a whopping 33 rounds in Challenge #1! WAK_Fury comes in close at 2nd right on his heels, @TXMR following right behind with 3rd and CoDz-enthusiast @RequixEclipse keeping himself in the wildcard slot. But will these four continue to reign as the leaders of the tournament?

 

Challenge #2: Descension

Mode: One Buy (by u/Burn_Hassan)

Map: Der Eisendrache

Type: Solo

Power: Yes

Gobblegums: No

Time Limit: N/A

Description: 

 

Flee to the German fortress of Group 935's snowy base...without your money pouch. Players will have to fend off the undead masses with only limited points, as they can only buy ONE item per round. This can get very messy, very fast.


Rules:

 
  • Players can only buy one thing per round - this includes ammo, doors, traps, wall guns/Mystery Box weapons, Pack-a-Punch, teleporting, anything that costs points.
  • All perks are allowed minus Quick Revive.
  • Pack-a-Punch is allowed.
  • All weapons are allowed.
  • Power is allowed.
  • Traps are allowed.
  • Gobble Gums are NOT allowed.
  • Mystery Box is allowed.
  • Elemental Bows, Zombie Shield, and Elemental Bows (upgraded included) are allowed.
  • The furthest wave reached wins.

To keep track of participants, use this link to see each player standing. Although the current system on Challonge states that players will go up against one another, scores will actually be inputted based on highest round/score obtainable throughout each challenge. The stats on Challonge are not reflective of true scores - they are only to show how many participants have entered and what they scored in. These scores will not be reflected until the very end of the month.

 

To see the true results of each challenge, use the following link(s) below:

 

Ancient Trials June 2017 Tournament

 

This spreadsheet will display each player's scores per challenge, and also include the Top 3 slayers of the monthly tournament. Use this as your reference for overall scoring, not the Challonge brackets.

 

New update: Players are now allowed to submit their own scores on the Challonge website. This is due to an increased demand in other players wanting to see the scores of others. All scores will be corrected and reviewed upon end of the challenge week.

 

The challenge will end June 10th at 11:59 pm PST. Once finished, the next challenge will be posted the following day alongside the results of the previous mission.

Happy slaying friendos, and may the Ancients guide you through the Aether!

 

-----------------------------------------------

 

Also, I am very aware that the weapons are slightly different in Black Ops 3 compared to Black Ops, including mechanics such as sliding and the zombie AI; however, after much field testing, results have shown that the difference is not significant enough to disallow either game to be chosen for this challenge. Each has their own strengths/weaknesses, and will be determined as such in each recorded gameplay by the players.

Quick question can we stack our one time opening? Like wait until wave 5 then open 5 things in a row? On a side note sorry I did not participate in challenges I took a break from zombies, but I'm back and excited for this challenge!!

Welcome back!!! Though I am not the one to make that call. I would guess that stacking would not be allowed

The way the first rule is Worded like this for a reason. To prevent one finding a loop to jump through.. lol besides we can buy every thing but quick revive and Gobble Gums! The trick is knowing how to choose what to buy wisely.. ;)

Stacking not allowed - if you don't buy anything within a round then you lose that opportunity haha. Good luck! 😉

I always thought a no door challenge on burred would be fun. No buying doors or flying with the wonder weapon. anything else goes.

I didn't do as well as I could have but no time to redoo and it is a nice score. 

 

Although fun this challenge was a little too easy. Maybe only the first 10 waves allow purchasing? so only 10 things allowed to be purchased? Thoughts for the future.

This crazy challenge yielded crazy results, as we currently have a double deadlock tie! @TXMR pulls into first with YaBoyKnife with a massive 35 Rounds on this challenge. @RequixEclipse @andydabeast and WAK_Fury barely squeeze into 2nd place, and @sushine1 clings into the Top 4 with 3rd place. This is gonna be one for the books, folks! Now let's see how we can break this tie...

 

Challenge #3: Pizza Hut

Mode: Hut Challenge (by u/zombieboss115)

Map: Shi no Numa (Black Ops 1)

Type: Solo

Power: Yes

Gobblegums: No

Time Limit: N/A

Description: 

 

Trek through the swamp of the undead while finding [somewhat] safe haven in the isolated huts! Players have limited time to get set up before camping out in any designated hut. Once there, they must remain until the horde has been eliminated. How electrifying!


Rules:

 
  • Players must choose a hut to camp in BY ROUND 5.
  • A player is NOT allowed to leave the hut unless there is one zombie left at the end of the round, or it is Hellhound round.
  • If a player leaves the hut in the specified allowance, they may do whatever they please.
  • If a player leaves at any other instance (i.e. where there is more than 1 zombie alive), the match must be forfeited and the player must restart the challenge.
  • All perks are allowed minus Quick Revive.
  • All weapons are allowed.
  • Power is allowed.
  • Traps are allowed.
  • Gobble Gums are NOT allowed.
  • Mystery Box is allowed.
  • The furthest wave reached wins.

So for the hut, do we have to go back if we kill the zombie? or what is the time limit for that?

Yes; so if you kill the zombie outside the hut, you need to go back to your chosen hut. If you start killing zombies while not in the hut, that's grounds for a forfeited game.

Would this be an accurate and simpler way to describe it?-

 

"Once wave 5 starts a player may not kill any zombies if the player is outside their hut. 

If there is more than one zombie remaining a player cannot leave their hut.

Dogs are not zombies."
