This was a golfing challenge
Golf challenges start with a very high score threshold, which periodically decreases until a team reaches it. At that point, the threshold is set for everyone and the challenge behaves like a regular jeopardy-style one. (Full rules).
Golf challenges borrow the speed element from 2019's speedrun format, rewarding teams that solve the challenge fast and lock the challenge threshold to a high value (where few teams will reach them, ensuring a high point value) but at a much slower pace. They also self-adjust both in difficulty (players set the final threshold) and in score (OOO's point system rewards challenges that are solved by few teams).
if u thought shellcoding was fun, wait until you try bytecoooding
Threshold starts at 8, and decrements by 1 approximately every 5 hours.
