I prefer D2A being all secretive about when he makes a new one, it keeps people on their toes and causes mass paranoia in the Callouts forum.
If you didn't get in, suck it up and be more prepared for the next one.
If you did get in, you're most likely going to lose anyway so it's not a big deal. :wink:


it cost me $20...that i offered to the one who pmed me first...4 people pmed me...only the first wanted the cash...ie premium


did u make any points from it?

i think they should have an assassin battle royale! it would be incredibly funny and lucrative for one lucky lucky player.

exactly! all the experienced players would be scared to attack for fear of eliminating another persons target, whereas the relative newbs to the site would attack straight off and make someone gain an incredible amount of points for nothing! imagine if you were that lucky guy........

Monthly BR games

Postby crzyblue on Thu Jan 03, 2008 10:25 am

Suggestion Idea: Monthly BR games

Specifics: every month have 1 BR game and make it the first week of every month

Why it is needed: Bring more fun and excitement to CC :)

ps: added option, if you win a BR then you can't join another for 2 months, starting with the next month, leaving them 90 days to lose points they gained

This has been suggested before. In all do respect, I think the "unexpected is more fun!" argument is bull. There is a HUGE majority of players who don't even pay attention to the forums or the community who deserve to be a part of the fun that the Battle Royale provides. Many of the hints provided for the recent Battle Royales would only be known by the older, more senior members. Looking through the list of the Battle Royale players throught the different games, I see many of the same names.

The staff continually speaks of not wanting to ostracize new members, and yet they pull off something like that?

Have one Battle Royale a month. Maybe two, to diversify settings. To join, each ranked player (5 or more games completed) submits his or her name to a monthly lottery. The pool of players for the BR is selected from this lottery. If you make it into a BR, you can't resubmit you name for three months. Also, you could make the lottery premium-only.

lol you want to not ostracize the new players yet make it premium only?

and i like the surprise, i didnt join in on any of the BRs because i have a life and didnt have any more than an hour and a half free at a time. but the randomness makes them more fun as you enjoy it more!

I disagree that the questions can only be known by the older, more senior players. They certainly do appear that way. At the same time, I've only been reading the forums for a few weeks, knew absolutely none of the questions, and still was able to search for, find the answers, and enter the battle royales for 3 of the 4 I attempted to get in. It might have been mostly the same names, but a large part of that was that those people were the ones who were refreshing enough to see the question immediately, which gave them the maximum time to find the answer and put in the password.

I would love to see more battle royales as they are a fascinating and fun variant to the game. I can understand if most are made premium only (even if I am sad that I can't become premium yet and miss out on those, I understand that there are perks that people who have paid for premium deserve), but premium only would cause more people to be shut out then the questions that they asked yesterday.

Also, if you did a lottery by the time they selected people and then invited them to the game there might be a problem of everybody showing up due to the time lag between those two processes. I felt the way they did it yesterday was very fair allowing those who had not been able to get in a match earlier in the day to be the first ones allowed in the last one of the night. I think something like that could be done every few months to make it easier for those players who had trouble getting in for other ones.
