Whoops, accidental double post. Anyway, the cap might even be as low as 80 for those who don’t find out about the theme until it starts tonight.

Pluvius Posted:

36 visits (which would be 120 scoops, not 140). For people like me who are only playing Domination this week because of the just-announced theme, the theoretical cap is more likely to be 100.

bumuming you have 12 visits banked for this evening you can use 40 visits this week. For solo vanilla it’s best to use visits in full sets of 12.

For a fully optimized solo vanilla run you will get 9 x 5 scoops in a 12 visit run. Three sets in a week nets you 135. You can do a final run of 4 forums next Wednesday. Grand total is 140 scoops.

Of course it’s exceedingly unlikely that you will be able to get such optimized runs and even if you do you will likely sacrifice some pistachios and yellows doing it. However it should make solo players ability to grief much much more fun.

This is really going to be a week where the last minute card plays will effect everything. And the no Shields means that people will be bumhole-ing earlier in the week as well. Though, I can’t wait to see what happens.

you spend the first 4 visits: +5

you spend the 8 visits you had left: +40

you spend the 4 visits you got after rollover: +20

The day of domination round end you burn your visits solo (you’ve got 12 again):

you spend your first 4 visits: +5

you spend the 8 last visits you have left: +40

with no visits on day zero:

*** THEORETICAL SOLO CAP = 110 scoops ***

Yeah, I forgot that the fourth visit counts too. I also somehow forgot that people would be min-maxy enough to wait until rollover to technically get a 16-visit run.

AHAHA HEADSETS

so yeah, it appears this method helps solo players get vanilla, but it also helps clans get EVEN MORE vanilla – on an individual basis.

and the shield reversion is just that – a reversion to the way things once were. so are the folks at CZ thinking shields were a bad idea?

Particularly for clans that rely on fewer members. For me this is just revenge week. bumholes away on the clans that always hit me.

I'd build a road in gold just to have some dreaming...

I thought this was an interesting week. It think the vanilla bump for solo players was a wonderful thing, it really offered a huge reward to those putting in the effort.

As something to combat raiding, it doesn’t level the field, since one can earn solo vanilla within a raid. (Half of my klan earned solo vanilla within our raids.) But, it definitely has a balancing effect. (It is absolutely more difficult to get solo vanilla within a raid, as you want to wait to drop to 11 klan scoops in order to get the klan vanilla. The wrong forum falling can really slow things down.)

No Shields. The good old days when 21 bumhole cards meant 210 scoops destroyed. The carnage was awesome, I saw several “clean” brackets as late as Tuesday. People still used the same strategies, they were just far more vulnerable. The really notable change without Shields was the obvious difficulty organizing ties. Bracket after bracket the ties are few and far between. Maybe that is a good thing, maybe not.

I think the removal of the Shield was probably harshest for inexperienced players. Not because they use them, most newbie brackets see very little in the way of cards period, but because regular Dom players reacted to the lack of Shields with “Well, if they never have any scoops, they can’t bumhole me later.” or “Wheee, bombs away!” People who would have normally been left alone were getting hit on a huge scale.

“Permanoob”

I play all of my alts as non-klannies. The ones that ended up in noob brackets were effortlessly dominant with the vanilla rule change. Three of them each won 4 medals without anyone even trying to fight back, but in the higher brackets (I had one in Beyond Godlike and another I think in the third one) even though I did pretty much as well as I possibly could have with those two I wasn’t even close to being in the ballpark with the Brainfreezers and Episode Betas. This change in no way makes it possible for a solo to compete with a motivated Klanny.

my only complaint is that you people are happy

I like the vanilla change, and think that being in a raid should disqualify you from solo vanilla scoops. It only makes sense. Therefore, I propose that the 5 Scoops for Dominating 4 is kept, as long as you can’t get it while raiding.

I actually did exactly that, but things were busy enough during rollover that I only managed to get 10 extra vanilla scoops with my last four forum visits.
