Well, if you’re going to make a theme do it wholeheartedly imo.

Also LOL at ending the transmission before you start it.

Does the raid I created then ended within 2 minutes count in the 50?

Yes. For now if we are going to prove that raids are messed, you should not create raids unless you intend to raid. This is, unfortunately, the only way we have to track the success of our changes.

For enhancements/suggestions on raiding please visit the Domination Enhancements thread and post your comments.

Would’ve been better if you made a destruction medal already, average dom players won’t bother to use cards because it is unrewarding.

The only way? You’ve been getting feedback on raids for weeks, now. The three major raiding klans in the game have stopped raiding. Most of the domfabulous persons have been screaming about the changes and how screwed up it is and how much raiding isn’t worth it.

I just really don’t understand why you insist on looking at that number instead of the community feedback. The one raid I know of that was an actual raid, was done for the purposes of a few people mooching. I believe 6 people used all 12 of their available visits to get these three people an extra 28 scoops.

Sorry to derail the thread, but it’s where the comment is and I’m just not convinced it would be seen if I started another thread.

Signing nicco re: destruction, but cards are cheap enough that the top three brackets are being won with scoop totals from 50-150, case and point:

http://www.forumwarz.com/domination/archive/2009-02-11?domination_archiv [bucket]=1

Those totals are extremely low for the second bracket, and it’s like that because people pounded the bracket with bumholes all week.

Sneakily vicious and filled with virtuous pit bulls.

Tactic for the week: pwn a forum in the last few seconds. Everyone else will be on 0 scoops, the player with the highest pistachio streak wins.

I did a small initial run, enough scoops for 12 cards, and I had the option to get an bumhole for each of them. I don’t think this was luck, just the decreased number of cards means I was almost guaranteed an bumhole with each pick. So no point getting any other card types when there’s going to be no scoops to shotgun/destroy/steal, and no point getting switcheroos when you’re going to have no scoops to switch. Just choose bumholes, zero the bracket.

This theme might have worked better if we had a larger variety of cards. As it stands, it’s just ridiculous.

You’re not wrong. Like the cheap card week there is very little strategy and a whole lot of luck involved. I expect to hear a lot of howls about lag ruining the top end of people’s streaks next Wednesday.

If this is meant to be a test of whether people want to play destruction for a possible destruction medal it isn’t a good test. The reality is people don’t want to do *anything* without a reward, that is human and gamer nature.

Side note: Right now the bumhole is overpowered because a player doesn’t need to totally sacrifice his own scoops to play it for the 10 hit.

Sneakily vicious and filled with virtuous pit bulls.

With 5 cards, you have a 3 in 5 chance of being able to choose an bumhole (meaning in turn you can do 10*3/5=6 damage for every 4 scoops you earn on average, plus whatever extra you get from drawing destroyers, thieves or shotguns)

As shotguns aren’t an option, you have a 3 in 4 chance of being able to choose an bumhole, thus doing an average of 7.5 damage per 4 scoops you earn, plus any extra from other attack cards, making it closer to 8 damage per 4 scoops.

The second strategy for the week is to not play destruction cards at all, and just earn as many scoops as possible to offset anyone who doesn’t play along. Almost making it a prisoners dilemna situation – don’t screw each other over for potential mutual advantage or screw each other over and end up with a dice roll finish. In actual practice though, that would be very boring and the opposite of the intended effect.

shotgun is removed to make the average damage/scoop ration closer to 2:1???

why not remove thief instead?

Good thing these are only Theme weeks. I’m starting to think that weeks like this, where we get rid of defensive cards are a good time to test raising the price of all cards. To discourage people from only buying cards. What do you think?

This theme is like Gambit. Nobody will have any or very less scoops throughout the week and the person who can pull off the biggest pistachio loop at the end of the dom round will probably win.

And if we raise the price of cards next time.. to.. 6? or 8? Would that change things?
