Is it possible for people to vote on the next challenge? At the beginning of the month when you release the challenge, you could also release a poll with several options for people to decide the next month's challenge.

Yea, that's a good idea. I will randomly generate 4 options and then people vote on what they prefer. However, I think that a poll every month might get tedious, so maybe every other month.

That works. You could either take the top 2 choices from each month (in which case you should give everyone 2 votes) or make 1 a popular vote and 1 a random event.

The latter is what I was planning.

Proposed Table 1:
show: map

show: special settings


show: type of game


show: basic settings


show: number of points required


show: Round Limits


Ok, so the rotation will be alternating.

Month 1 (March) will be random
Month 2 (April) will have a poll. During March, we will accept nominations, a random set of 3 user-submitted challenges will be added to the poll. If your challenge is accepted, you are barred from suggestions for the next 2 polls.
1 of the poll options will be a random pre-determined challenge
1 of the poll options will be blind random (nobody knows until April 1st)
1 of the poll options I leave open to myself to insert my own suggestions

Note that suggestions don't have to be limited to things that could be randomly generated.
Some other examples of what I mean: 4-player or higher games in which every player's name is a different length of characters
Games in which at least 4 different ranks are playing
As you can see, there is quite the room for imagination here.

However, the entire table is UP FOR DEBATE.
I will take comments tonight and tomorrow and this goes live on Friday (probably around lunchtime EST). Don't want to lose momentum. Will start a new thread in Callouts on that day. The table will change even after we go live, so don't worry if you don't see this in time.

EDIT: I made a few changes after generating some challenges and seeing how they played out.

For the record, tournament games don't count and games with (random) map don't count unless (random) is the map selected.

Count me in!

And I like the blind random poll-otherwise people look at the most likely polls to succeed and pick the one they like most (instead of their overall favorite).

I dislike the notion of receiving double medals, that's a bad idea imo. Also, how many game wins are needed to get a medal?
Finally: why not force people to play team games with someone they've never been on a team with before? Or maybe someone that they've played 3 of fewer games with since the first could get tough for some players.

By blind random all I mean is that one of the poll options is 'Blind Random' which means you vote that nobody knows until the month starts.

Forced teammates sounds like a good idea for one of the suggestions.

DoomYoshi wrote:A little known fact is that Adjacent Attacks tournaments and games were tried before Trench became a setting. I went even more extreme and did a tournament in which you were only allowed to attack certain continents on certain turns. My point is that sometimes testing the validity of a setting might help garner attention for the setting from admins.

So: If I ran a non-official version of this, would anyone be interested?

i'd be in

DoomYoshi, I think you're getting unnecessarily complex here. I would just have the mods (Entertainment Team, perhaps?) pick out what the next month's challenge will be. I don't think it has to be completely random.

What do you think about the following as part of your suggestion?

1. Make this a premium only perk; and/or
2. Have a link like there is for Battle Royales, but have it say "Challenge games"

show: Challenge Games Link


The link would take you to a screen that says,

This month's challenge is to defeat 30 unique opponents on Antarctica map. Maybe there would be link to waiting games or maybe they would be premade and ready to join and/or maybe a link to the Create Game screen with whatever options are part of the challenge pre-selected.

That could work too.

I made the random table because a) Making random tables is what I like to do, b) it's easier and less biased than me just deciding on a challenge. The randomness doesn't have to be a feature though.

Instead of a General Achievement Medal, how would a new "Game Achievement" medal sound? :)
