    Hello small brains. This is a small giveaway of some sorts that includes difficult puzzles that are quite pointless and have nothing to do with the game itself. The prize will be 10-15 World Locks (Prize will increase depending on the number of contestants). What else could you gain? Well, there can only be one winner, and that winner has all the right to call themselves a Big Brain.

    Enough of this Big Brain nonsense. Have you ever heard of cryptology? I'm assuming you're going to say yes.
    Great! Well, this is a puzzle to put that "knowledge" to a test!

    Below, you'll find attached an image that will lead to another series of puzzles. Your job is to complete this puzzle without the help of the internet, this includes not only but also, Reddit, 4chan, Discord, or any automatic decipher program. However, you are allowed to use websites that decipher a text for you. This includes websites that simply aid you in deciphering the text but not to brute force the entire code. By using these websites you waive your right to claim the prize and will be forever known as a small brain.

    Please respond to this thread if you're interested in joining this puzzle. If I amass a certain number of contestants I will increase the prize that will be given to the winner.

    I will not post the post image until contestants have agreed to the rules and decide to join. Good Luck.

    For those who don't know where the puzzle is, read the #12 Post

    Edit 1: Prize pool will increase to 10 World Locks as of 5/24/2020

    Edit 2: Prize pool will increase by 5 World Locks to become a total of 15 World Locks as of 5/28/2020

    Sorry dude, somebody already got the answer. I'll be making a new one soon and you can join that!
    Unless something is forbidden, quantum effects and fluctuations will eventually
    make it possible if we wait long enough.

    STEP 1

    ciphertext:

    this is base64 encoded y amount of times recursively. we dont know what y is, but we are given a clue:

    y =

    this means we have to find the derivative of that equation, substitute x = 1, and finally round to the nearest whole number to get y; the number of times it has been encoded

    so the ciphertext has been encoded 3 times

    after decoding we get something that suspiciously looks like a link

    "phgldiluh.frp/ylhz/3scmp08aupct0bl/Xqwlwohg.sqj"

    turns out its caesar 23

    STEP 3

    the decoded link: mediafire.com/view/3pzjm08xrmzq0yi/Untitled.png

    we are almost done! the answer is hidden in the image file itself (download it)

    and then view its bytes as text and scroll all the way down

    V1.0 is now complete. I will be creating more versions to these Big Brain tests. The first prize is 5 World Locks and may have already increased. Congrats. Next prize will be 15-20 World Locks. Well done.



    FINAL STEP

    our answer is 204 chars, we need to turn it into hex; 1 char = 2 hex digits

    I am impressed by the level of effort that went into this, both by the host and winner.

    Well done!
