VG5: The Triad- Challenge Grounds

Located just a short walk's distance from the Triad, these grounds are where all challenges will take place for the duration of The Triad. These challenges will test your physical strength,  strategic prowess, mental toughness, and endurance. I hope you all have prepared yourselves.

Remember to check here for the upcoming schedule.

Next Mission:
The Triad has wrapped production.

How's it going everybody, 

I'd like to welcome you guys to your first challenge:
Blind Man's Maze

For today's challenge, all together you will enter the giant maze you see behind me. You're gonna have to maneuver your way through this maze to the other side where a bell is waiting for you. There's lots of twists and turns inside so be sure to be on your toes as you go through. The first person to ring the bell on the other side of the maze will win today's challenge, be safe from The Triad, and have to make TWO very important decisions. But, keep going because last place automatically goes into The Triad. Everyone else will go back to the house and all cast a vote for the second person to see elimination tonight. 
Oh yea, one more thing: you're all gonna be blindfolded during the challenge. 

^Told you Tyrie would be here.

 

HERE'S HOW IT WORKS

1. I have selected a (very easy) maze from google images. You will not see the maze until all scores have been judged. (Seriously, it's like one of those mazes from a restaurant kid's menu)
2. Using your official Triad PM, send us a list of 50 commands.
3. The commands can be one of these four things: FORWARD, LEFT, RIGHT, or RINGS THE BELL
4. We will take your list through the maze. Whenever we hit a new opening we will use the next command on your list to decide which direction you wanted to go. 
5. If you hit a dead-end, you will be turned around and a command will be used.
6. Make sure you put "RINGS THE BELL" periodically throughout your list. You will not be completed until you ring the bell.
7. Whoever makes it to the end and rings the bell in the shortest amount of commands will win.
8. In the event of any ties, we will go by who submitted first. Earlier submission time= better score.
9. If you do not submit a list, you will be disqualified from the mission (and likely receive a strike, depending on your situation.)

Any Questions?

Boop.

is it a matter of luck? since you won't show us the maze until all scores are judged

is it a matter of luck? since you won't show us the maze until all scores are judged

I guess you could say that. I literally googled "easy maze." Do with that what you will.

Yes it is, I believe.  Pretty much y'all are sending us a list of 50 commands to us via Official Triad PM and we'll determine a winner once all lists are submitted(or the 24hrs hit first, whatever comes first) 

Competitors, I know y'all got this though!  Remember this is a deadline challenge that will be due 24hrs from now!

nvrm 

why must we post ring the bell periodically? please explain lmao, is it incase it gets used in a corner or something

why must we post ring the bell periodically? please explain lmao, is it incase it gets used in a corner or something

Your "time" doesn't stop until the bell is rung. Just an added layer of strategy.

Just a thot: Please number your list for easy scoring.

when will the results be posted? 

Tomorrow night after the deadline or after I get 12 submissions all scored, whichever comes first.

For clarification, if you exit the maze in 8 commands, but don't put "Rings the Bell" at all, you will basically never complete the mission. If you exit early, but don't put "Rings the Bell" until your 50th command, your final score will be 50.

Wtf at this luck mission Kloun. You not getting laid tonight bish

Sooo basically it's a crapshoot¿¿¿

I'm about to be stuck in this damn maze forever

Just waiting on 2 more submissions and then I can reveal results!

5 hours left for the challenge!

Waiting on this last submission and I'll do the results earlier.

Smh, I'll do it in a few girl.

Smh, I'll do it in a few girl.

You crack me up! lmfaooooo

Results coming soon. 30 mins max.

RESULTS
Blind Man's Maze

Alright everyone, That was an interesting first challenge. 
A lot of you guys had a lot of trouble in there, I saw a lot of running into walls.
Two people stood out and came close, but ultimately only one of you rang the bell. It came down to MickeyFlo24 and LucciVee.

The winner of today's challenge, being safe from The Triad and having two important decisions to make:
LUCCIVEE
with a time of [44 commands] 27minutes and 16seconds!

 

As for the loser, automatically going into the Triad:
Lucci was the only person to escape the maze and ring the bell, so it came down to distance away from the exit. [How many commands were needed in order to finish]
3 of ya'll did horribly, and ended up running out of time on the opposite side of the maze.
Those people were Albany, AshKelseyFan, and RichJoe92. 
The person who did the worst and will automatically be going into the Triad is:
ASHKELSEYFAN
You were the farthest away from the exit. [Needing 12 more commands in order to finish]

 

 

Now it's time for everyone to go back to the house and get to deliberation. But before we do that, I have a surprise for everyone. I'll see you back at the House.

The sad thing is if this were a real maze I'd know how to get out haha

Hello everyone, I'd like to welcome you all to today's challenge:

Ram It Home

For today's challenge, behind me are 3 sets of different size sleds. All sets are roughly the same length, but split up in different ways. Set #1 contains 6 courses of a straight, 30m long sled with a bag. Set #2 is 6 courses of two 15m sleds with 2 bags. Set #3 is 6 courses of three 10m sleds with 3 bags. The bags for each set will be loaded with sand equal to double your body weight. The goal is simple, push your bags through one of the courses, in the fastest amount of time. The person who completes their course in the fastest time will win today's challenge, be safe from The Triad, and make two important decisions at deliberation. Whoever completes their course in the slowest time will earn a trip straight to The Triad.
How are we going to select who gets which set? We'll start with the last Triad Winner. That person will select which course they want to Ram It Home on, as well as the next person in the process. That person will select their course, and the next person. So on and so forth until all 18 courses have been claimed.

Here's How It Works:

Set 1 (6 courses): One straight 30m long course

1. You will post "[YourName] rams the bag home for [##m]" with your jersey color over your name and distance travelled.
2. One post equals one meter. Each movement must be done in a separate post.
3. You finish the course once you have rammed your bag all the way home, so 30m. 

Set 2 (6 courses): Each course contains two 15 meter sleds

1. You will post "[YourName] rams the bag home for [##m]" with your jersey color over your name and distance travelled.
2. One post equals one meter. Each movement must be done in a separate post.
3. Once you have rammed your first bag to the end of the first 15m sled, you will post "[YourName] switches to sled [#2]" with jersey color over name and sled number.
4. You will finish your course after you have rammed the SECOND bag 15m.

Set 3 (6 courses): Each course contains three 10m sleds

1. You will post "[YourName] rams the bag home for [##m]" with your jersey color over your name and distance travelled.
2. One post equals one meter. Each movement must be done in a separate post.
3. Once you have rammed your first bag to the end of the first 10m sled, you will post "[YourName] switches to sled [#2]" with jersey color over name and sled number.
4. Once you have rammed your second bag to the end of the second 10m sled, you will post "[YourName] switches to sled [#3]" with jersey color over name and sled number.
5. You will finish your course after you have rammed your third bag 10m.

Examples:

Set 1-Course 1:
First post: [Klounsnax2.0] rams the bag home for [1m]
Last Post: [Klounsnax2.0] rams the bag home for [30m]
Once you get to this post, your time will be stopped.

Set 2-Course 6:
First Post: [202mitch] rams the bag home for [1m]
Once you hit 15m, your next post would be: [202mitch] switches to sled  [#2]
Next post: [202mitch] rams it home for [1m]
Last post: [202mitch] rams it home for [15m]

 

The selection for the courses starts with AshKelseyFan since she won the last Triad. 
So, If she wanted to do the course that's split into 3, and wanted semisweet to pick next, her post would look like this:

1. AshKelseyFan- Set 3
2. Semisweet

Then Semi would fill in with her selections:

1. AshKelseyFan- Set 3
2. Semisweet- Set 1
3. Trinidad055

and so on.

You can not select a set without selecting the next person.
For clarity's sake- each set (type of course) has only 6 courses. No more, no less.

 

This challenge is deadline, so you have to be complete with the challenge by 8pm on Friday. Let's try not to hold this up too much.
The challenge will be played in this thread. 
Once you have your course- you can do the challenge. Just get with production and any one of us can time you. Don't do the challenge unless we're timing you or you wanna do it more than once. You don't have to wait for everyone to have been picked.
We're using stopwatches, not the time at the top of each post. This one may come down to seconds.

Any questions? GO!

Use this format for lists:
1. AshKelseyFan
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
7. 
8.
9.
10.
11.
12.
13.
14.
15.
16.
17.
18.

huh

...so basically whoever has set 3 is screwed because they have to have 2 extra posts to switch sleds. 

Ummm I don't want to gamer to pick next... I thought I got to choose??

Hope you made friends or can post fast!

Yes, you start us off. Pick which course you want and who will pick after you.
