[GP] Weekly/Monthly Challenge Medals

Postby DoomYoshi on Thu Feb 14, 2013 8:05 pm

There is already an unofficial version running.

Click this link:
http://www.conquerclub.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=31&t=186676&start=0

Concise description:
  • Every week or month, a medals team comes up with a new challenge. That medal can only be won during the week

Specifics/Details:
  • The qualifications will overlap with other medals
  • Example challenge: Win 10 4-Player Games on France this month, any settings
  • Another example: Win 1 speed game every day this week

How this will benefit the site and/or other comments:
  • It will be awesome
  • Medals that newer players stand an equal chance at getting as casuals
  • I totally stole the idea from how Pogo does their medal system
  • great way for the site to advertise new settings, new maps, underplayed stuff, etc.
  • Will give players a Specific Reason to come back next month/week

This sounds REALLY fun.

Will there be a time limit, though? Some larger player games won't be completed within a week and are hard to fill as far as speed is concerned.

I'm not sure exactly how it would work, details would still have to be hashed out. I think going based on a monthly prize system might work better in that case, so you have a whole month to finish games. I think if the challenge is particularly nasty (like 8p Hive Trench Nuclear Adjacent) then it should count games started as well as games finished.

I like it. I would just try to note when games started. And, to get things done in a timely manner, make round limits be used on any of the 24h games.

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 think that's a good idea Doom. Go ahead and start it up. Maybe we can get some unofficial prizes as well. Keep me posted.

I am going to come up with a random table. Every month, I will randomize what the challenge will be. I think people will appreciate the transparency and then we can discuss the random table before this goes live.

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.

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.
