That's right folks, it's getting time to set up the next cycle of the GTN Fitness Gamer competition!

The ultimate reward for Cylce 3 will be the exclusive and super-rare badge originally created for GTN's Hosted challenges For The WIn

!!!! | (formerly Zombified)

That's right. The winner will not only obtain a greater physique and self confidence, but one of the rarest badges on the site. But only if we get 5 participants to enter and play!

A rare badge. If that isn't incentive enough, I don't know what is!

And you know what's even better? This cycle will be abbreviated just for the holidays! Instead of 10 weeks, this one will only be 5. That way the New Years Resolution cycle can start Jan. 1st.

Here's the Rules:
Start-up: Signing up to the competition ensures each player 10 points for thier balance. Upon completion of goals and challenges, the total will increase and at the end, a winner will be announced! Participants will also be penalized for not playing.

Participation Challenges: Each week will have a specific goal in order to earn that week's participation point. It could be as simple as earning a set gamerscore or a certain number of achievements. They will change from week to week and will be worth 1-2 points.

Bonus Challenges: Each week will also have an optional bonus challenges that will require a more dedicated effort to earn these points. The may be very specific to certain games and will have special requirements, but they are worth more points, from 1-3.

Leader Bonus: Each week, a certain goal will be set that only one player can achieve, whether it be the most gamerscore, or the most achievements earned. Either way, only one player will be awarded these points, from 1-2.

Particpation penalties. Every player will be issued 10 points at the beginning of the cycle. For each week that that a member does not participate, point(s) will de deducted from thier balance. Any player who reaches 0 points after enough penalties will be disqualified and no longer tracked.

Partial Participation: Simply playing and earning achievements, but failing to meet any goals will award a partial participation honor, indicating no scoreboard points earned or taken away. Any player who reaches 0 points after enough penalties will be disqualified and no longer tracked.

I should do a blog post or something, eh?

That's a good idea. My blog is minimal however, so how do I promote it to enough readers?

I am just going to point out that if we want this cycle to start, we need at least 5 members participating. Otherwise, there will be no badge awarded,

So far we have 4:
B8TINGU
NicK2oo6
porschephiliac
preludecris

So at least one more and we will be able to badge someone, like Jeff...who really wanted it cycle 2, but mean ole Cris had to dash his hopes...
