[Grey Goose Mafiosi]

Level 30 Troll

“Permafail”

But wait.

First, number of threads in a forum can be checked without using a visit. Someone will just write a utility that checks them then. Second, would it be that difficult to make speedruns a measure of average attacks per thread as opposed to overall total number of attacks?

speedurns already are influednced by number of therads

not suer why the change to the forumal would make people behanve diferently

This. Average attacks per thread, or possibly the inverse of it, should be the weight variable that ET was talking about.

Sneakily vicious and filled with virtuous pit bulls.

I’m not sure, I think I like the random number of threads as is right now. It is hard to predict, but that is part of the challenge, right?

It’s currently virtually impossible to predict. If player speed is factored out and gameplay remains decision free, it would be the sole thing which dictates whether you get lemons or not.

If the information were somehow available the player could make on the fly decisions about which forums to run.

If the player had some limited control thread count, he or make some kind of tradeoff – e.g. if an item slot is taken by something which affects thread count, it would be a choice of less stats vs less threads, which may be worse or better for the player depending on the forum. A special item with high repair costs (equip it for the wrong forum and you’ll pay a high price) which in turn gives you less threads, less moar files, less deliveries as a trade for more lemon, would also be another way of limiting new flezz coming into the economy.

Level 35 Troll

“Problem Child IV”

Some forums also have harder threads in them. Rather then thread count alone, account for the total Ego of the forum when it is opened in the formula somewhere, and you might be able to get an accurate reflection of PWNAGE vs speed.

hot horse great times lover

Interesting, now people can prep forums for solo raiding since it won’t matter if we sit on the last attack. Same with klan raids, if klan raiding ever returns.

Level 23 Emo Kid

“Bleeding Heart”

i think emo kids shouldn’t have damage subtracted/ should have damage not matter as MUCH as others, since they will want to have lots of damage done to be more effective.
