Oh yeah, I'll probably be streaming, too.
A question related to the challenge.
I have never done the challenge before and I was wondering if I could just get some general advice.
I am planning to stay up for the 3 days straight, for me that is 8am-8am. Is this a good idea or will I be more productive if I have a 5/6 hour sleep in the middle.
What type of chair would you think be best, as my chair at the moment seems to soak sweat in during 30+ temperatures (Celsius), and with temps probably reaching 40ish degrees during the time of the challenge, do you have any suggestions on how to make a wooden dining chair more comfortable
And last of all, how do the impromptus work? Do we just put it in the steam chat and they get pulled up every couple of hours?
Plan your time including rest.
I think you'll want to get your rest. Getting your sleep means you'll be able to stay more focused when working. I can't imagine much quality work being done after 48 hours of being awake.
As for the imps, from my experience there will be multiple playtests each day and the best way to get your map in is to just hang around in the Steam chat. Being in the Steam chat during the 72hr also helps build a sense of community, which is nice for this contest. I think a lot of people are planning on being on Mumble as well.
I might be streaming and i'll probably be mumbling, but i'll definitely be mapping.
Streaming isn't as big as it could be since so much potential audience is mapping, but its worth a shot.
50+ hours, sleep when you're dead, only way to go.
I can't wait to lose!
With that attitude, you will!
Be positive! B-E Positive.
Oh yeah, you guys might as well watch when this all starts!
Despite how the website says I'm an "alleged expert", I still haven't moved far beyond this stage of map design:
I really hope that dog is not going to participate in the contest.
No one would stand a chance.
Like you did last year? You sounded really awake on your 30-odd minute video.
But hey, what're we talking 'bout. We're sounding like sleep experts. Just take a nap when you feel like you can't do anything anymore or your concentration level has dropped below 0. Or take lots and lots of coffee. That's how I'm going to roll.
Decided that I'm going to stream at http://twitch.tv/blabvoid
EDIT: i'm also gonna be in the mumble probably, while streaming
I also have a twitch account.
It'd almost be better if the ranks were given based on the "thanks" you've received. Would be a good way to see how many people you have helped.
... Or, of course, how many dank memes you've posted

For your optimal mapping effeciency:
The uberman's sleep schedule
Yeeeeah... I work a full time job. That would never be possible.
I won't be able to get the time off from work so I won't be participating, but I'll probably join mumble to chat and I might even work on the map I started last 72h (but didn't finish).
I'm not responspile for any 72hr induced death.
Seriously though, you'll probably be most productive if you sleep at least 8 hours every night of the competition (so 48 hours working).
