  2. 9th November Olympic Overview
    Winner: Todd_Vinton/Enterprises
    Overview: A fairly high turnout for the first time, was lacking judges due to most not turning up but you can't do too much about that. I had to go half way through so not all events was completed, completely my fault as I should have started earlier. But hey! It was a busy day with it being by birthday and such. Hope all who attended it enjoyed it

  12. How will you check the winners of the long jump? Even if you record with 60fps it might be hard to see who won with just a bit of lag. (and we all know horses can causes more than a bit of lag)

  14. How are you going to judge the sprints and the short jump?

    - I foresee sprints coming to a close call between 2 or more players, and there's essentially no way to tell unless you record from the finish line at 60fps and look for pixel perfect details - and then people would start complaining because on their screen, they won, even though it could have been that way for them because of lag and nobody else saw it like that.

    - The short jump is going to be a nightmare to judge. There is a limit of how far you can jump in minecraft, and it's just barely over 4 meters. How are you going to tell who jumped farther, especially after you have to take into account they probably also moved a bit after they landed because they were hitting their sprint key while jumping. I don't understand at all how this one will be judged. An idea is to make a dropper arena of sorts - like you have to jump off a platform and get to the bottom without hitting any of the obstacles on the way down. This would be MUCH easier to judge because you could just have a piston contraption lock up the win zone after one player gets to it and you'd have your winner.

    Just some thoughts ;)

  17. Some good points there, the sprints are going to be fairly long and should be judgeable. I will take into account your second idea :)
    Yes, not sure yet until we try but should go on for 1.5 hoursish

  18. But how much deviation can you have in running and jumping? Surely there won't be that much of a difference in the final time of all the contestants unless they like accidentally release a button or something.
