The Duel Simulator Released

Author Brant    Category All, Updates     Tags

After several months, The Challenge: The Duel simulator has been completed. This is the first simulator where the challenges were designed with extra details and 100% logic, attempting to make it as close to the show as possible. It includes the 15 regular challenges, the 4 possible duels, and the final challenge. Please report any bugs you see or changes that you think could improve the season. All previous feedback was reviewed, and many adjustments were made.

Saving will be added in a few days, once there has been enough time to identify any additional concerns that need addressed.

I personally don’t think this much time should ever be spent designing a simulator again for a single season of a show, and I announced that development would stop for the rest of 2017 on the other seasons of The Challenge. Feel free to comment or take this survey if you have an opinion on that.

Friday Morning Update: Saving has been added, so this season is finalized.

    I found a glitch in Final 6 challenge. Holly won the final challenge before finals. Cathi and Thalita were supposed to duel, but instead it was Cathi and Holly.

    It appears that there’s an error in the 15th episode. I had run several simulations and observed the voting chart of each. Sometimes, there is a contestant who wins safety and then loses a duel, This is shown in the top section of the voting chart above the “Game History.” In the “Game History” section of the voting chart, you will notice one contestant winning a prize/safety (labeled WON), 3 contestants winning a duel (labeled , and 2 contestants being eliminated (labeled OUT). Obviously, 3 contestants can’t win a duel in the 15th episode, because only 2 duels actually occur.

    i would say to design the rest of the challenge simulators but don’t include a lot of detail in them. I just really enjoy all the challenge simulators.

    In the episode 4 challenge, the results are listed under the wrong teams (Results for Guys are listed where the results for Girls should be, and vice versa)

      Did you have any special settings (like changing up the team that dueled) here? I’m trying to reproduce the error and can’t find it.

        I did encounter it using custom teams (5 males and females on each team.)

  • RRR [Guest] March 9, 2017 at 4:06 pm

    So are the votes in favor of the challenge simulators going to be added together when deciding if you guys should move forward creating more? Just dont want the votes being in favor get split lol

      It’s not an exact science. The polls are used to help gauge interest, but the exact winner won’t be be determined just based on results.

        When is the BBOTT simulator scheduled to be released? I’m super excited and it feels like I’ve been waiting for decades. 🙁

          Preferably as soon as possible, but no estimate can be provided at the time.

    So I found this really huge glitch in the edit cast menu where after I tried to submit the cast this huge message came up that said this:

    Error: You must set a full name for team #1, member #11.
    Error: You must set a full name for team #2, member #11.
    Error: You must set a nickname for team #1, member #11.
    Error: You must set a nickname for team #2, member #11.
    Error: You must set a gender for team #1, member #11.
    Error: You must set a gender for team #2, member #11.
    Error: You must set an image URL for team #1, member #11.
    Error: You must set an image URL for team #2, member #11.
    Error: You must set a valid gender for team #1, member #11.
    Error: You must set a valid gender for team #2, member #11.

    And the problem with this is there are only 10 players

      Thanks for the report. That’s a serious problem. I’m trying to replicate it so I can fix it.

      Text-Only Edit, Basic Edit, or Advanced Edit?

        Basic edit sorry it took so long to respond

    I really enjoy having simulators of The Challenge seasons, but if doing all the extra details for individual challenges makes it difficult, I’d be fine with those being left out. The more important thing for me is having a way to simulate the game format.

    I know this has nothing to do with the Duel but something I noticed in the Interactive template for BB [11 people] week 8(F4) Neil Lumsden(TAR Canada) picture changed from him to some black dude
