WXPC - Weekly XP Competition

Greetings, members of the Hitman Forum. Today I present the beginning of @Charlie_Farmer 's weekly competition, the WXPC.

-How this works:

Every week, 2 or 3 contracts will be made according to a theme. These contracts have been made to present a challenge to all members of the community, whether you like to play casually, as a completionist, or speedrunner. However, to win, participants must have the highest score (not XP in the usual sense) whilst achieving a 5-star Silent Assassin rating.
No, that doesn’t mean the fastest time wins. To tackle the time bonus, we’ve added extra complications that, if completed, offer hefty rewards.

-How to submit runs?

To enter the competition, participants must record their run (with the Timer HUD enabled) and either post it on this thread or directly to @Charlie_Farmer or @0047. This second choice is in case participants fear their strategies may be ‘copied’ by others.
DO NOT FORGET to record all the way to the rating screen and to the detailed breakdown of the score (Press Square for PlayStation, Y for Xbox, the equivalent for PC). This is to verify your final score.

-What do you need to win?

You need all contracts to have a 5-star Silent Assassin rating and the highest mission score compared to all other participants involved. This can come from either the time bonus, complication completion, or a mixture of both.
(Yep, it’s been reiterated)
4-star runs aren’t accepted since kill techniques are compulsory. We won’t have a particular disguise involved though, so you can do it suit only or with disguises.
The winners of the individual contracts themselves will be announced first, and then the overall winner (who has the highest total score on all 3 of their runs) will be announced soon after.

-How is the winner rewarded?

Aside from bragging rights, a winner can produce a contract according to next week’s theme and can partake in the production of complications and roadmaps, or just in discussions.
Monetary rewards were, unfortunately, scrapped due to difficulties, for instance, with gift card vouchers being specific to countries. Stay tuned, however, since this may change.

-Schedule

Monday Evening (GMT)- theme is revealed
Tuesday Morning (~7AM GMT)- contracts are provided
Saturday 8PM GMT - submissions close. Winner announced soon after.

-Got anything to say?
Post your thoughts, ideas, or recommendations down below if you feel it is necessary. Constructive criticism is always welcome. Please refrain from arguments or unnecessary posts here, since it is meant to be well organised for participants to find posts.

We chose this as the ideas were quite easy to implement, providing a solid start to the competition.
