Ghost Recon PC Co-op Challenge 2011

What makes for a good co-op partnership?

This is a question we were asking ourselves recently, and we got to thinking the only way you can really know if your team makes a good partnership is to put it to the test.

So we’re doing just that - we’re inviting you to show us what you’re made of.

How does this work?

Each Friday for the next 6 weeks we will release a brand new custom co-op game mission for your team to complete. You then have a week to practice and record your best scores with one other co-op partner.

To submit your entry you’ll need to take a screen shot of the score screen and post it to the Official Ghost Recon facebook page wall BEFORE the close of play each week. Winning entries will submit a replay of their mission, instructions for that are given below.

We’ll review all entries and pick star players.

So what makes a star player/ team?

We’ll be looking at teams who can complete the maps with as much stealth gameplay as possible. In order to gauge this we've introduced a clever scoring script into the missions that will display your score at the end of the mission. The team returning the best score and who impress the judges reviewing their replay file will win.

In addition to the above we’ll be looking at those players who participate the most across the whole co-op challenge, you might not earn star player status through stealth but determination could prevail. We’ll also be looking at those players who improve the most across the challenge period.

Rules:

There are few rules to the challenge.

  • All we ask is you play the mission as released with no other custom mods activated, and have the three game settings screens set up as shown below.

 

  • Teams: To make it fair, two man teams are required for this competition. If you do not have a team mate at the moment, you can post up in the GhostRecon.net forums that you are interested in joining the competition.

Here is an example screen shot that we need to see to validate your score. Just hit the Print Screen key on your keyboard when this screen appears, then save the image file somewhere on your PC before posting it on the Facebook page.

Remember to save your replay file as shown in the two screenshots below, but use your own handle, not Tinkers! Winning teams will be asked to send in their replay files bu e-mail.

 

 

How do I post my screen shot?

When viewing the Ghost Recon Facebook page wall you’ll note the comment box at the top of the wall just like the one shown on your profile page. If you do not see the comment box, make sure you have clicked the "like" or "join" button first.

To add a picture simply select the ‘photo’ option, then select to upload your image as you would normally.

Once completed this will put your screen shot into our ‘added by others’ album so we can review the scores throughout the challenge.

A competition Teamspeak Channel will be provided for teams. Teams can choose to record their comms and/or the mission with Fraps. This will be voluntary, you do not have to record your communications, but it would be cool .

Each Friday the new mission will be released!

If you have any questions about the challenge please feel free to post them at the Ghost Recon.net fan forums..
