Medieval Guy wrote:If you earn your faction points for every MOC you make, the we could conceivably wind up with a faction that has lots of participants with poor builds doing better than one with fewer members and contest-winning entries. The only solution I can think of to make this fair is to make the number of people in each group fairly equal. While this may be a bit unrealistic, it's the all I can think of.
We have a couple of ideas to keep this from happening.
1) No "Global Points" will be awarded for builds that are not part of a Global Challenge. That way, every nation has an equal number of chances per month to earn points for their faction, and people can be solid contributors to their faction without having to crank out a new build every week.
2) Limit the number of "Personal Points" that an individual can earn for themselves per month from misc. builds.
3) We probably will "cap" the number of people in each region to keep the distribution fair. We'll probably start out at 10 per region, and then as we get bigger, we can increase it to 15, 20, 30, etc.
The scoring system may be a tad confusing when you first read it, but hopefully it will become clearer as we move along.
Basically there are two independent scoring systems. One for the factions, and one for individual players.Example:Global Challenge #1 - Build "ABC MOC"Participants:Loreos -
Builder A, Builder B, Builder C = 15 Global points for Loreos, 5 personal points for each Builder A, B, and C.Lenfald -
Builder D, Builder E = 10 Global points for Lenfald, 5 personal points for each Builder D and E.Garheim -
Builder F, Builder G, Builder H (Builder H wins the challenge) = 15+20 (win bonus) Global Points for Garheim, 5 personal points for Builders F and G, and 5+10 (win bonus) personal points for Builder HOutlaws -
Builder I = 5 Global points for Outlaws, 5 personal points for Builder I
For faction challenges, guild challenges, and misc MOCs, only Personal points will be earned.
I hope that helps
