That’s where you’re wrong. The only reason you’re not having a problem is because the people in raiding klans who really care about domination are in higher brackets already. So you haven’t competed with them.

And now that you’re in the top bracket, I notice that you aren’t competing.

he got 2 scoops away from a medal in the same bracket last week

What the scoreboard doesn’t tell you is that he just tried desperately to win at the last minute, but hadn’t done anything in domination for the rest of the week.

A feeble attempt. He almost got lucky, only because other people were hit with offensive cards. I don’t think that counts as competing.

I’ve coordinated vanilla runs, and it’s not complicated.

I’ve never said anything else. I think the whole “coordination” thing is so overrated that I wrote the Wiki guide and took out an ad for it to try to encourage smaller groups to try it.

Everything happens in Domination the last fifteen minutes anyway. What’s the big deal trying to do something in advance more than ambuming cards? I wasn’t spared, got bumholed thrice the last half hour or so.

And yes, I wasn’t competing this round. I figured I would have a better chance getting the double shinies next week instead.

I have to give you credit. At least you don’t pretend that you’re not a pretentious ****.

rock on, /me is super ****

Goth_Jesus Posted:

You wholeheartedly believe that only people who take the time to raid should earn scoops. However, people who take the same amount of time to gamble should not earn scoops.

No, I too believe that there should be a way to earn a decent amount of scoops through gambling. I was simply reminding you why Antifreeze was capped in the first place. Because of there really being no restriction besides a player’s time, a player could get a ridiculous number of scoops as proven by you, Summergirl, and Sancdar before the Antifreeze nerf. If the Antifreeze cap is raised to more than 5 a day, then that would rock.

The point I’m arguing against is that Vanilla should be capped or restricted even more. It has already had a nerf from 3 scoops to 1 per klan domination. 3 scoops was indeed quite ridiculous, and I believe that right now things are fine at 1 scoop.

If all of you gamblers want to crusade to have your Antifreeze cap raised, go for it. But don’t **** at us raiders to have Vanilla capped even further.

How is this not the case with Vanilla? Well, besides that it requires multiple player’s time (except they also all benefit.)

Although I must admit, winning did sort of ruin my argument. Unless I maintain that my victory was merely the result of my own successful raid earlier this week. Although one might observe that the success was of a much lower magnitude.

Truthfully, the biggest advantage to klan based Domination is the possibility of multiple bodies in one pod, but that isn’t a big advantage if those bodies aren’t there for the last 15 minutes or so.

One player with a pile of vanilla is just a mbumive target.

But again, I’ll agree that bumping anti-freeze to 10 scoops would be just fine.

No, he was seriously playing 4 characters, actually pushing for medals with all. Managed to medal with 2, was off by 1 scoop with another and 3 mods with the 4th. If I hadn’t been slamming Goth, I’m sure Tarman would have picked up minimum in his pod. Don’t downplay that kind of focus, it’s one thing to sit in a pod and be able to focus all your attention on it, it’s another to shift between 4 characters and still achieve medals.

You seem to be forgetting Antifreeze was capped because of the potential infinite number of scoops a person could get through gambling. The only soft restriction placed on it was the amount of time the person would be willing to spend gambling.

In comparison Vanilla has a pretty hard restriction in that scoops earned is still limited to the klan raid’s visits remaining, not to mention the other restricting factors of even trying to get players from around the world on at the same time to pull off the raid.

When you’re out of visits, you’re out of visits, and no more Vanilla. Although I guess you could argue if a klan is so large that it has a ridiculous number of visits for raids, then it could earn a ridiculous number of Vanillas. But I haven’t seen that happen since the Vanilla nerf.

The biggest raid I’ve been involved in brought in 125 scoops (after the nerf) with about 22 individual players (not counting alts). (And on average, a raid would bring in about 75 scoops with 14 people twice a week, for Knights of LOL that is). I think that’s a reasonable and fair amount of scoops for a raid to earn if it involves that many people. I guess I should’ve explained further when I mentioned “coordination amongst a group of people” earlier, but yes coordinating the raid itself isn’t too difficult… it’s trying to get that many people on at once for a raid that makes raids fairly uncommon and Vanillas hard to earn because of VISIT LIMITS.

If there were a klan out there with hundreds of members that ran raids daily to rake in hundreds if not over a thousand scoops a week, then I would change my views on this matter. But getting a raid started has been quite ****ty recently due to school finals and exams. So at the moment, I’m going to have to vote NOTHX on Vanilla caps.

Ah, I was only watching the top team and didn’t realize he was playing all his alts. I just kinda bumumed at this point, everyone would be focusing on their character with the greatest medals to get the most medals as possible before the reset.

Suffice it to say that there’s not much of a point to earning medals on Arktor. I’m perfectly willing to admit that I can’t possibly beat BL.
