Beta Bounty!

Postby MrBenn on Thu Feb 03, 2011 2:19 pm

To celebrate the launch of two new Beta maps today (South Africa 1885 and Middle Ages), I have decided to offer a special reward/bounty....

The winner of the 1885th game on either map (this may be after 1000 games on one map and 885 games on the other, for example) will receive a beta bounty of 3-months premium!

Happy Beta Play!

It depends which order the gamefinder shows them - I expect it'll be the winner of the 1885th game started.

near 1885 there will be prob be allot of games created.
then when over 1885 the ones who don't have the game will delete there games.
so it will be changing who is in 1885 game, don't know how this will go?

Unfortunately what happens in a scenario like this is you get a few players (e.g. Mr.Benn's KORT clanmates thebest712 and Rodion) who each set up 40 private quad games on S.Africa (that's 80 in total....games that will most likely never be played and are closed to anyone who wants to join, see 8603180 thru to 8603281).

Pretty dubious tactics.

I don't see anything wrong in grabbing a rare opportunity through legal methods.

With your logic, I could just as easily say speed Battle Royale games were "unfortunately joined by the few players who refreshed CC's page every second" or that HA's 200th first bounties were "unfortunately taken by those few players that lurked in the thread with F5 pressed for hours".

I'd have created fewer games, but the rules here are not clear, since someone could get game 1885 and then lose it because another game was dropped. To avoid that sort of confusion, we took enough games to overcome a reasonable margin of error.

I can play those games, by the way. I've even sent an invite to you and some of your friends for one of those. ;)

Sorry, but there's no comparison to someone who casts his net out over 80 private games in the hope of winning premium worth $6.25 to one who manages to join a game set up by someone else, e.g. in Battle Royale or in HA's tourney and goes on to win that game. I thought someone in your profession (underpaid is it?) would obviously spot that.

And thanks for the invites. Obviously we'd rather have chosen our own line-up rather than simply have you select the four highest-ranked players in the clan and cause a rather inequitable points difference, but we'll see how we do.

The principle is pretty much the same. There's something rare occuring and demand is higher than supply. You wait for the opportunity and take it, be it a bounty game, a speed BR that happens perhaps one day per year, the game 7777777 overall, the game 8000000 overall or game 1885 from MA/SA. The one slight difference is the prize has small monetary value.

I didn't do this for me. I don't mind not getting $6.25 worth of premium, but I know people that would appreciate that a lot. Now I can help 3 other people (4 if I abandon my own spot).

Feel free to pick another line-up. I have 42 other games to fill. ;)

The principle's not the same at all, and I guess on this we'll have to differ. You and your clanmate are squeezing people out of the market - in all likelihood a lot of freemiums who would love a chance at winning even just 3 months membership. At least in a BR or HA's tourney they have an equal shot just as anyone else, but with the tactics you've employed you are effectively trying to corner the market.

It just struck me as something that didn't befit your rank, your status (premium) and your profession, but hey ho that's just me I guess. Vive la difference!

Well, I think we will have to agree on disagree on that one. The extention to which one person can use his own rights (like me creating 40+ games, which I can) and eventually affect other people negatively (every fremium that was not online to claim game 1885 as their own) varies by place. The site is, as far as I know, canadian, the foundry head lives in USA/UK (not sure right now), you live in Hong Kong and I live in Brazil. If 4 different people with different cultures were asked about what means should be allowed towards the goal of claiming a specific game number, I'm sure we'd get 4 different answers (just to illustrate, someone could say we'd have to create only one game and pray that it was the right one, someone else could say 5, a third person could say 50, as long as all created games end up being played and a 4th person could say if the site is not coded in a way to prevent it, then it's ok to do it). That said, vive la difference, I suppose.

About status and profession, as I said before, I didn't do this to get premium myself. I'm just waiting for Mr. Benn to confirm which game is the rightful 1885 one so I can invite fremiums and give them the chance. About rank, and this I found particularly odd and interesting, do you really think high brigs/low generals have a specific behavioral tendency? What would that be?

Let me know if you want to change your line-up.

OK, so it could be said you are using your privileges to gain an advantage for another (of your choosing). Whichever way you splice it it's still a dubious tactic imo. It will be interesting to see which game does end up being #1885. Hopefully you'll have wasted your time ;)

Re rank - Yes I expect every player who has attained a certain level to be a custodian of the site and set a good example to others. It probably explains why I get pissy at farmers who, for selfish means, besmirch the reputation of many high-rankers who have tried hard to play well and play the game fairly.

Re line-up - Thanks. We'll see if any of the four of us are going to sit it out and I'll let you know who to invite in his place (I'm guessing you can't give out the p/w for fear we'd join all your games!)
