Dunatis suggested that returns to deliveries due to Luck might level off at some value. Right now, I feel like I’m noticing a cap in regard to Charisma. So, this thread is just to keep track of the value of deliveries, and perhaps relate them to fans gained to get a better idea of the delivery return equation. If anyone else wants to help out that’s cool too, but I’m pretty much keeping my stats constant in that I’m only attacking the same forum and only at a specific number of threads.

Or he could give others the idea, as well as an incentive to participate.

EDIT: Incidentally, are we talking 4 forum visits, 4 forums pwned? Only I know that payoff varies with forum diversity.

I’m only starting to record it now as proof. I’ve been watching my deliveries very carefully since late January because my income is tied to the Flezz leaderboard, so I’m fairly well aware of what I normally get, and that amount is about 600K for pwning AWMIB four times in a row at 7+ threads.

My battle Charisma is around 58, which usually gives me between 400-500K, for 6 threads and 7 threads, respectively. My rollover Charisma is 127, and for the past few days of pwning without saving visits I’ve been getting my normal 600K, which tells me there’s a cap somehwere between 58-127. And the low side.

The purpose of this thread is to both prove there’s a cap (for Luck and Charisma) and also to provide references for where people might look for where the cap is. Because once it’s found, people will be able to know if it’s really worth buying some expensive +30 Luck or +21 Charisma item if there’s no marginal benefit to equipping it at rollover.

Because rollover equips are a real pain to go through.

How many fans did you get? I suspect the people making four times what I get in Deliveries are also getting double the fans (total fans for me = 20,000/4 visits) since the fan cap is at 10K per forum.

I forget the reason why ET nerfed this. Did he want people grinding to not get as much in deliveries or some thing?

There’s a delivery cap, otherwise certain clbumes would have huge advantages over other clbumes, like camwhores can get way more charisma (thus better deliveries) than other clbumes.
