PostSubject: Kinds of Contests   Sun Apr 29, 2007 4:55 pm

The verifiable info for in-game is limited to :
Total loot:
Links clicked:
Battles:
Wins:
Losses:
Undecided:
Gold received:
Gold lost:
Damage to enemies:
Damage from enemies:

Soooooo . . . that gives us the ability to run contests for, umm -
Most loot any source
Most battles fought
Most battles won
Most battles lost
Most gold won
Most gold lost
Most damage dealt
Most damage recieved
oh yeah and Levels gained

My thoughts on these contests:
Most lot from any source, fun but doesn't encourage duelling.
Most battles fought, good one
Most battles won, another good one
Most battles lost, bad - very bad
Most gold won, another good one
Most gold lost, another bad one - worse than battles lost really
Most damage dealt, good, but would favor 2handerers
Most damage recieved, not good, but maybe a special "purple heart" award?
Levels Gained, hmmm not sure about this one, will it favor the lower level knights?

Any ideas for other contests? Maybe something out of game, or something I've overlooked?

An important point that I have over looked is that most contests will be for either non-premium members or premium members, since premium members can fight more often than non-premium members and will also probably have better access to jewel gear.

I have moved this discussion here from another thread. . .
Angela had replied:

Well at the initail stages almost all of these things are going to favour 2H players. Its only after lvl 20+ or so that 1H's really have the advantage.

No. of battles fought is fine but some who started playing earlier will have an undue advantage as is the case with almost all the sections.

If there's a way to measure it over a particular period of time only it would b a lot more meaningful then.

The easiest way to handle the contest (that can think of) is to have it run for a time (12 AM Sat to 12 AM Sat or what ever) the contest officials would record everyone's stats at the start point and then compare them to the final stats ar the end point. In thinking this over I think it would be best if we set a "prep time" of maybe 30 minutes to an hour at the start and finish of a contest to give the officials time to record the info Shocked even for just 30 members, it will still take a bit of time to record the info.

PostSubject: Fairest way to run the contest   Sun Apr 29, 2007 5:04 pm

Again, bringing some info over from the old forums. It had been brought up that higher level players would have an advantage in many contests

Quote :
the higher lvl players have a distinct advantage as they have much more gold for their missions and stuff. More gold + higher lvl = better stats + better weapons + easier kills + better chances of getting gold from battles..

Easier kills, hmmm - maybe against lower level targets Neutral but I can see your point.
The fairest way would be to break the contest down by level ranges . . . but that would entail 3-4 times as many contests. I can't afford that many a month, and with that many contests and the limited number of guild members (KF's Castle system) the pool of competetors would be quite small. Current numbers are -
3-4: 7
5-7: 16
8-10: 7
(Levels 7 & 5 look to be our most populous levels, so the middle range is the largest. )
My current plan was to run 2 contests a month, starting with 2 for non-premium members and slowly switching to 1 for premium members as the number of premium members increased. Instead I could run 2 for 2 different level ranges. The main reason I don't want to do it this way is I want to have everyone involved at the start, to have a guild wide competition - maybe # of battles fought is the way to go, or # of battles won.

this is an older post moved from the old forum, the level information is now out of date

Oh ok. Anyway is the prize always going to b one Jewel ticket? Im still unsure of how the whole thing works. I mean after the 1 month is up will it revert to the old settings?

EDIT: Changed the last 2 words so that the question is clearer!
