Labyrinth

An online treasure hunt event that tests your technical and analytical skills. This event will require immense general knowledge, absolute prowess over the art of decoding clues, a lot of common sense coupled with a faithful internet connection.

There are several levels, once you clear one level you will be directed to the next level. In each level clues will be hidden in the web page itself. All you need to do is to find the clues and find the answer that relates all the clues and put the answer in the input box provided.

Rules:

Each question has a unique answer, which must be entered to reach the next level.
The overall leaderboard will rank players based on the total points they have in descending order.
Points are calculated as follows : 
Solving a level (till level 50) awards the player 200 points.
Bonus points are awarded ONLY to the player who cracks a level first. Everyone else gets the base 200 points only.
Levels 51+ don’t award bonus points when solved first, but instead offer 400 points to every player who solves them.
Bonus points are awarded as follows :
Level 0          : No bonus points
Level 1 - 20         : 10 bonus points
Level 21 - 30         : 20 bonus points
Level 31 - 40         : 30 bonus points
Level 41 - 50      : 50 bonus points


Daily Prizes and Leaderboard system: 
There are 2 leaderboards, the main/overall leaderboard and the daily leaderboard. 
The main leader board is based on the points solely. 
The daily leaderboard is based only on levels solved.
 Each day has a level cap, i.e. the last question any player can solve on that day, the next question will only available on the next day.
So, the person to solve the last level on a specific day(except the last day of the hunt) will win the daily prize.
All the answers are lowercase alphanumeric without spaces and special characters(unless specified otherwise). For Example, if the answer to Level 0 is Pragyan 2k19, enter “pragyan2k19”.
Think twice before giving any answers to your friends. Generocity doesn’t fetch you points. It’s each player for himself.
All decisions by the event managers are final and binding.

 

Judging Criteria:
 
Judging Criteria for main leaderboard :
Players are ranked based on the points they scored.

Even if there tie for number of levels, then participant who solved the last level first (based on the time) is ranked higher.

Judging Criteria for daily prizes :
A participant can get prize only for one day i.e., if he was the first in the leaderboard at the end of a day for more than one day, then he’ll get the prize only for the latest day. 
The overall winners don’t qualify for any of the daily prizes. 
If they did win any daily prize, it will carry over to the next player on the daily leaderboard of that day.
