i had an idea for some events like having teams randomly selected in the contest and the combine scores will give you your standings. what ya think bout doin that for some contests?


I think this is a neat idea that we may want to consider for our next skilling contest, or just a 1 day contest!

> Nice idea though, thief!

Didn't understand a single word of what he said. Care to write a proper english explanation? :P

Basically he thinks we should have a contest, whether it be a skilling contest or not and take scores in teams.
For instance, if you are running a skilling contest and your running it with the team method he's thinking of, the experience gains are added together for a team score, getting you to motivate your teammates to train as well
Lit, if it still doesn't make sence, tell me and I can try to dumb it down more for you ;) jk

@Arthur: Thief can't actually see this post, he sent it to me in a pm, and I don't know if it was meant only for me to read, but I thought it would be best to share it with all the ECs

Oooh I get it now. Sounds pretty good! With complete randomly made teams (well, not randomly enough that it's unfair), this can turn into a great improvement for the contests. :)

I like the idea, but I'm not too positive about trying it with the week long comps, maybe at least just trial it with a one day comp so we can see how it goes.
Because if we do it on a week long comp, those people who sometimes get 0 exp could let a team down.

Agreed, but with every team you have, you always get a slacker right? So it should be expected

We should do a trial with it first, I agree

We could do a team contest.
For example 4 people are in a team woodcutting. Another four people are in a team woodcutting as well. We count up everyones scores from the day and make it into 1 score for the whole team.

Do you get me?

Thief made a good idea there. ^_^

i think its a pretty good idea too, but can i not do it since it will be my first contest, i can if it would be voted for, but i would prefer to get used to getting the stats and everything first, :D but yes thief had an excellent idea.

> Hm... And it'd be blompty's first contest as well... So, Magik, you'll be responsible for a TFC - Team Fortress Contest ^_^ (I made up that name right as I typed :P)
