We’re proud to announce the Eventzee Version 1.3 update for Android and iOS devices. This new version of Eventzee includes a ton of new features to take your Eventzee experience past a single scavenger hunt and encourage you to participate in numerous events.
- Take your private scavenger hunts to the next level with combined events featuring both Photo and QR code clues! These dual hunts have also included a redesigned “Clues” list.
- The “Player Profile” screen now lists your overall Eventzee points and worldwide rank. This page now also links to the “My Events” page and the all new “My Badges” page.
- Become an Eventzee pro by joining multiple events and earning our new achievement badges! Earn badges by submitting lots of photos, earning overall Eventzee points and more! New badges will continue to be added in the future.
These badges are retroactive so you can earn them with past stats as well as moving forward. We hope these badges work as an incentive for players to continue to participate in our Weekend Warrior free photo hunts as well as host their own Eventzee hunts. To start off, we have released two lines of badges, but you can expect more badges in the near future. This also opens up the opportunity for hosts to offer a unique badge for their personal Eventzee hunts.
The first two official Eventzee badges are the Photographer and Pioneers of Gold lines and will each have three levels with possible future additions. The best way to achieve these badges is to join the free Weekend Photo Scavenger Hunts hosted by Eventzee each weekend. These worldwide hunts run from Thursdays to Sundays with clues going live at 3 PM MHQ time. Your photo will be either approved or rejected and you will earn points based on your submissions. We’ve also included a new cumulative leaderboard that you can visit online at www.eventzeeapp.com/leaderboard.
To join these hunts just find the Weekend Warriors event on the Eventzee in-app calendar and RSVP. If you’re interested in hosting your own Eventzee hunt please contact email@example.com and we’ll get you set up with the right package!
PIONEERS OF GOLD LINE:
May 24, 2015 | Announcements, Hunt Tips, Weekly Hunt
As a few of you have noticed we’ve had a lot of people complete the entire clue list for this weekend’s free public photo hunt- which is awesome! It does beg the question though: Who is the real winner? Well a few weeks ago ]=we introduced a new tie-breaking method and this weekend we’ve had a good chance to see it in action.
The first tie-breaker is obviously based on points earned. Since we have done away with bonus points, when you complete all the clues in a Weekend Photo Hunt you can get a total of 400 points (500 for this weekend’s longer hunt). So whoever completes the hunt and earns the total amount of points wins. Well in theory anyways. This weekend we have had dozens complete the hunt and earn all the points though so how do we define who won 1st, 2nd and 3rd place?
In the case of numerous winners with the same amount of points we enact a time-based tiebreaker. This number is calculated from the first time you submitted a photo to the last time you submitted a photo. Note that is SUBMITTED , not ACCEPTED, so there is no worry about a admin taking longer to approve some photos than others. This is to ensure that those who completed the hunt the fastest aren’t inhibited because our admins work part time at odd times of the day. This also ensures that players in the US who are awake when the clues go live at 3 PM CST do not have more of an advantage than a player in Australia who would be asleep at the start of the hunt.
So finishing the hunt first won’t secure you first place, you much finish the hunt fastest.
You can see submission times as well as points at the online event leaderboard:
Thank you all so much for your enthusiasm this week and past weeks. Trust that we work hard to make the most of out your hunts and try to offer a fair and fun time for all. Now enjoy the rest of the weekend’s hunt because in the end it isn’t about winning it’s about getting out into the real world and having fun! Getting badges is pretty fun too…
