Hey ECs,

What do yall think of a competition where the whole idea is to raise your skill total.

basically who ever has the highest total lvl gain over the competition wins.

Good idea, but just judging by total levels wouldn't be fair for ppl with all highish skills, people like me with several lvl 10 skills could gain 20 levels very quickly tongue.gif Maybe judging by total experience gained instead?

that wouldnt be a bad idea.

it would favor lower skill totals which would be beneficail because htey are the ones that need to raise it the most.

Here are my thoughts on this....

1) This is basically another competition like our combat competitions, where it consisted of best gains from all combat related stats. This competition falls in same category, but I have a question. Would this be only noncombat related skills or would it include all of them?

2) If it was total levels gained, it could be a big boon to our lower level people to get some of their skills up to a decent level, but it has its downsides. Our higher level people have no drive to work on their skills since it takes already a decently long time to raise. Here's my question, do you want this competition to be leaned more towards our lower level players to become better or do you want an overall competition with fair game?

3) Think of the organization... An overall gain in all skills is going to be hectic, not to mention the hell we are going to have to go through to calculate gains. I suggest this, if this was to happen, people sign up for skills they know they will raise and they will only be accounted for the skills they have said they will raise. If they raised other skills during the time of the competition, too bad, it won't be counted.

4) Length of time will be an issue here, so what do you plan on doing about it? 1 week I think will not be enough for this competition because some skills can be raised at much higher speeds then others. I suggest we change the length to 2 weeks to maybe even a month (throwing that in the air happy.gif ) . If we increase the time though, the amount of skills each participant can choose to be accounted for them will have to be decreased.

There are my major points of discussion for this topic, it might be intense, but if we want to do this, they need to be addressed. If anything, let's let the people know this ASAP so they know what they want to train for this competition. I personally like the idea because people can work on their gains and not be forced to raise a stat they might not like to train.

1. It would include all xp.
2. It would definitely lean to our lower lvl players and I think that this is a good thing. Higher lvl players know how to do the things more but lower lvl players will be able to gain more lvls. I would like to see equal participation by upper and lower lvls. I don't htink that the higher lvls should not do it jsut because its harder. It might not be as fun for the higher lvls but I am hoping that they will stick it out and still compete to raise the competition, making the lowbies get some nice gains.

3. I am hoping that people are on the highscores for overall smile.gif that would make it sooooooooooo much easier cause it tells you skill total and then total xp. then we would have to look at the rs highscores to get their updated total lvl and total xp.

4. i agree with a longer timeframe it would enable the competition to go on and hopefully get some great gains.

Should we implement this to be our next contest? If so, could I run it? I haven't done so in such a long time (since our last big-time contest with multiclan mess)


I say this is great! We got just about everything covered, but everyone feel free to give input!.

Also, how about we try to at least finish organizing the Race event? wub.gif

we are gonna limit the competition to ppl whos totals are on the highscores.


ur last statement was not appreciated. I have an idea. I'm going to put it out there. It shouldn't be hard to organize multiple events. It's not like this affects ur race anyways.

What I said is why don't we organize one major event b4 organizing the next one.
Smaller events like trips or minigames can and should be scheduled at the same time we organize major events.
And it's not my race. It's AL's race. I just came up with the idea. All the EC's gotta work this idea onto a real event, not just an idea.

=P No way I could organize, schedule and run that event by myself.

PS.: [beep] I accidentally edited ur post instead of quoting. No harm done though. I still gotta adapt myself to an extra button there sad.gif

The race is what? On the 13th? Well then it'll all work out then. The next contest isn't supposed to start till the 20th, which is whenever our next contest will start on the earliest. We'll work on what we will plan for the race now till the date the race is on, then we'll focus on this contest.

-Arthur, at the end of the firemaking contest, you need to make a post for this race to let everyone know ahead of time. Just pick a date, time, and world for now, we'll work on what we'll do for the events over the course of the next week.

I'm glad this topic hasn't started a flame war, it looked really close to becoming one, but I'm glad it got resolved. *phew*
