Level 35 Troll

Sneakily vicious and filled with virtuous pit bulls.

Winners will be either those who were decided well before the last day (for whom the theme is essentially meaningless) or down to pot luck if it’s a competitive bracket. You *could* monitor your bracket all day to try to keep your lead, but the effort does not justify the reward, so stuff that, plus you don’t have a lot of scope to keep yourself in the lead for 24 hours anyway. The basic tactic will be set yourself up, get screwed, and have no scope to do anything about it (or else choose a random time to run your visits, and just maybe hit lucky) Allies, and of course having multiple alts in the same bracket might make a difference, but that’s essentially the same as having the bracket decided before the last day anyway.

Indeed.

I’ll play this week anyway, so I don’t fall behind on medals…

OMFG! It's in MY bum!

Yeah, this theme certainly advantages klan raiders and prevents all tactical planning.

Well klan raiding advantages klan raiding, that’s still a separate issue.

I think my main problem is the time window is just too large. I could sit down with the idea that the round might finish any time within the next, say, hour or 2. That might add some tension to the game. Longer than that, no.

It might also be an idea to have a (say) 2 / 5 / 10 minute warning about the bracket ending rather than a straight cut-off.

I am considering this. But it kind of defeats the point of the theme. I’ll say maybe at this point Log in to see images!

Seriously, don’t. It’ll be up to whoever doesn’t have anything to do that day and while that would normally favor me, I have a dentist appointme the interests of more casual players than myself in mind always.

I honestly don’t see the reasoning behind this weeks theme. Who does it benefit, what does it achieve? What does it add that compensates for what is taken away?

I’m curious to see how (if) people enjoy the game without the last minute grind. It should change the way people play Domination, perhaps, for the better? I know a lot of people can’t play at 9pm when it normally ends. So we’re considering “random end time” and/or rotating end time to accomodate Euro players…

There must be a better way to address the last minute thing than eliminating strategy and giving medals out to random players. You might as well just roll a dice. Speed limit on playing cards? Penalty on last minute scoop earnings?

I like the idea of a random ending time.

It’s rather good for those of us who can’t always be in front of the computer at the exact time that the round ends (which is around 2:00 AM for those of us in the UK, I think) but who want a game that they can play at a time that suits us better.

That! Log in to see images!

Also, a different strategy (no last minute grind and card frenzy) is not no strategy.

You know, it’s possible that the whole theme is a ploy to deal with daylight savings and it’s just going to end an hour earlier than regular time. Log in to see images!
