How will the new domination changes affect sniping threads? Will there be any scoops for that?

Pistachio and lemon are now fixed and ready for go-live date. OP has been edited to remove “in development” references from those sections.

But Solo raiding will take much, much less time, as I understand it. That’s a good thing.

Those who wish for an advantage by spending more time (as any good game should allow) can do organized raids. We’ll soon find out whether the advantage is worth it or big enough.

Just to show reasoning behind what’s going on, the approach was to deal mainly with three problems – solo raiding taking forever (especially without alts), klan raiding being completely useless, and pistachio streaks being all powerful. Yes there were other things that could be worked on, but with the time and resources available, the people involved felt this was the best way to go.

In case anyone is wondering – spacekadt and I both were at least observers of pretty much the whole process, which is why we’re in position to talk about it.

Not yet… that’s not likely to happen in the next few weeks, but it is on the agenda to deal with. Or at least on the agenda to pester ET about until it gets dealt with Log in to see images!

Also don’t know if this has been mentioned yet – but all seasons will now be standardized at 20 weeks.

I would have made it 26 for an even 2 seasons a year.

Trying to create drama to drum up the ratings by any means necessary!

Will the last week of this or future seasons be worth double scoops?

Will theme weeks be implemented at regular intervals during the future seasons? Or show up before this season is over?

MY OPINION – NOT OFFICIAL WORD/OPINION/WHATEVER – The final week starts in two days. There’s still a bug with klan vanilla that needs to be worked out before the new season happens. I’d be surprised to see any thing for the final week other than status quo.

You mean like critical thinking, long-term planning, interpersonal cooperation, strategizing, prioritizing, and setting realistic goals?

...no, probably not. Log in to see images!

Okay, so having used the new Dom system, some observations:

– You would have to be an idiot to run forums if you have less than twelve. The vanilla scoops are amazingly easy to rack up, and vanilla raiding is a MUCH faster process (ran a raid that yielded 68 scoops in about ten minutes)

– It doesn’t seem like re-norming the lemon scoops did much; I still pulled the full 36 for my run

Time will tell on the pistachio scoops, but it’s looking like running 12- and 13-forum raids is now a requirement rather than an option. Interestingly, this might mean that any character strong enough to pwn 12 forums (so around level 4) can now compete on essentially the same level as a level-capped character.

I expect that the lemon redistribution will happen at rollover when it does the nightly calculations. Hopefully I’ll remember to take a look tomorrow and see if it’s closer to what it looked like on the test server. Log in to see images!

edit – the calculation, that is… people pulling lemons today shouldn’t expect scoops to appear or disappear overnight Log in to see images! spacekadt edited this message on 06/23/2010 10:08PM

Pistachio scoops will be given as “normal” up to a streak of 56 forums pwned. With 60, your pistachio award will begin at 1 scoop and follow the same award numbers as if you had zero forums in your streak.

Interesting question I’ve got. And what happens after I pwn 112 forums? Does it goes over 26 scoops in that scenario?

In other words, is Pistachio capped by just 56, or by multiples of 56?
