Hi, I have a question about this badge. Suppose that i win 50 challenges in html. Then i draw 15 challenges in html. And then i win 30 challenges in html. Here i win 50 challenges in html in a row but i draw some challenges in this row. Can i get the badge for this???
Nope you must win straight 50 no draw or loses and for my suggestion I think it would be even harder to do that with html since there are more user who have master Html challenges I recommend choosing another weapon for that
How would one guide the probability towards getting a winning streak of 50 challenges in a row? My guess is that you pick a weapon you have a certificate in and thereby the most experience -most likely html while although a popular language to study its answers are more readily memorized and less likely to time out on, change manage weapons menu to switch off accepting challenges to all other weapons besides your weapon of choice, never select random opponent while challenging, be careful to not hit the back button if using a phone which causes a time out on a round, dedicate hours each day to challenges free from distractions, always decline challenges from upper level users during the marathon as they will likely result in a draw, only challenge users level 5 and lower and at that scope out their profile beforehand to size up how much xp in a certificate progress, how many challenger % points they have earned and to if to risk a rematch after a 5:4. All in all, challenge beginners to help them learn.
I really think this badge should be 50 perfect 5/5's in a row with one weapon. Getting a draw while scoring 5/5 is different than 4:4 in my opinion. You didn't mess up, it's just the other guy didn't mess up either, and it's not like chess where you can make your opponent mess up. The way the current badge is set up requires a lot of luck.
I did it in Python.
When I knew enough to win 4 of 5, I chose only the weakest opponents (I think level 3 tops).
Obviously you'll get a lot of declines and expires.
And it's still not safe, because sometimes you get unlucky and only manage 3 of 5, while the opponent made 3 as well (they are not necessarily beginners even if the level is low).
So I had to climb up 3 times until I finally made it and probably played... yeah, a few hundred challenges.
Pankaj yeah, if you're talking about my suggestion, draw and declined should be the same. I mean, a 5:5 draw would still count for you, of course, whereas a declined match wouldn't count. However, the declined match still shouldn't detract from your streak.
