Medal Bonus Points Voting

I see all the votes getting lost amongst the many varied posts on the original thread. So how about using this thread only for your vote - other comments remaining on the original thread.

Here are what I believe is the shortlist - vote for your 1st and 2nd choice. 1st gets 2 points, 2nd gets 1 point. Option with the most points after Jan 31st wins!

Even if you've voted in the original thread I think it's a good idea to reiterate here to keep all votes in one place.

Option #1
Gold: 20 points
Silver: 15 points
Bronze: 10 points
#4: 7 points
#5: 6 points
#6: 5 points
#7: 4 points
#8: 3 points
#9: 2 points
#10: 1 point

Option #2
Gold: 20 points
Silver: 18 points
Bronze: 16 points
#4: 14 points
#5: 12 points
#6: 10 points
#7: 8 points
#8: 6 points
#9: 4 points
#10: 2 points

Option #3
Gold: 20 points
Silver: 15 points
Bronze: 12 points
#4: 9 points
#5: 7 points
#6: 5 points
#7: 4 points
#8: 3 points
#9: 2 points
#10: 1 points

Option #4
Gold: 10 points
Silver: 9 points
Bronze: 8 points
#4: 7 points
#5: 6 points
#6: 5 points
#7: 4 points
#8: 3 points
#9: 2 points
#10: 1 point

Option #5
Gold: 15 points
Silver: 10 points
Bronze: 5 points

Option #6
Gold: 25 points
Silver: 18 points
Bronze: 12 points
#4: 7 points
#5: 6 points
#6: 5 points
#7: 4 points
#8: 3 points
#9: 2 points
#10: 1 points

Option #7
Gold : 25 points
Silver: 20 points
Bronze: 16 points
#4 : 13 points
#5 : 11 points
#6 : 10 points
#7 : 9 points
#8 : 8 points
#9 : 7 points
#10 : 6 points
#11 : 5 points
#12 : 4 points
#13 : 3 points
#14 : 2 points
#15 : 1 points

it does give a biggger boost to the gold but still gives even distribution for four through fifteen. the medals get more and the rest get some. is everyone happy now????

  • Compromise

    The two extremes are no bonus, and the 10000000, 100000, 1000 bonus. Option #7 is a compromise between those, and I think option #13 is a combination of two other options. So to compromise between #7 and #13 is just weak.

  • A Gap Between the Medalists and the Others

    A large point gap between most players and the top is not a problem. The only problem occurs if the players are not ranked as they should be. I.E. Should a player get more points for being #15 on two levels, or being #1 and #40 on those same two levels?
  • Ibanez
    Looks like a good compromise - except Silver should be 17 otherwise it's bigger jump from Bronze to Silver than Silver to Gold!

    Silver should be 17. Looks good
    Vega
    14128
    oh oops. sorry Ibanez, I didn't see your post
    bones
    yeah i just saw that. i meant to put 17. so do we all agree??
    Sz
    i just wanted to say that i'm back reading the forum after a long while spent on developing that new game

    as for the bonus points - looks like the decision has been made? for me it's all the same... i mean i can implement any of these options. what i don't like is that the "easy" calculation "1 point = 1 rank" will no longer hold for the top 15. so i'm only disappointed for the aesthetical reasons
    Vega
    14128
    aesthetical reasons ...... that's pretty funny Sz. Yes you are right we have concluded on the 'compromise option' #14.

    1-15 will look like this. (not considering ties of course).

    1. 121
    2. 116
    3. 112
    4. 109
    5. 107
    6. 105
    7. 103
    8. 101
    9. 99
    10.97
    11.95
    12.93
    13.91
    14.89
    15.87

    With a tie, I suppose that would mean some of the Bonus points ranking would be skipped? So if #1-5 have the same time, 6-10 have the same time, and 11-15 have the same time, wouldn't that mean that 1-5 would get the gold bonus, 6-10 would get the silver bonus, and 11-15 would get the bronze bonus? And nobody would get the bonus points for #4-#15? So it would look like this?

    1. 121
    2. 121
    3. 121
    4. 121
    5. 121
    6. 116
    7. 116
    8. 116
    9. 116
    10.116
    11.112
    12.112
    13.112
    14.112
    15.112
    16. 85
    17. 84
    18. 83
    Etc.....

    But actually looking at it now, that doesn?t seem right bcuz the way it works now is if there are ties, the points just continue where they left off. So actually it would look like this?

    1. 121
    2. 121
    3. 121
    4. 121
    5. 121
    6. 116
    7. 116
    8. 116
    9. 116
    10.116
    11.112
    12.112
    13.112
    14.112
    15.112
    16. 109
    17. 107
    18. 105
    19. 103
    Etc......

    The 38 people tied with #1 on Shelf should get 121 points, and then:
    #39) 116 points
    #40) 112 points
    #41) 109 points
    ...
    #51) 89 points

    The points a player gets in the new scoring should be based on their current points, not their current rank.

    newscore = oldscore
    if oldscore = 100 then newscore += 21
    if oldscore = 99 then newscore += 16

    Yea Kris...

    but i think its attached to the times... so fastest time (or any ties) = 121, second fastest = 116

    but ya this looks good

    Ibanez
    Go for it - I just hope I stay in the top 50 after this!!
    bones
    sweet! my option is the one that got picked
    bones
    also sz let us know if you change something in it.
    bones
    well if it stays the same i will get 131 bonus points.

    Sz - just wondering when option #14 will be implemented. Also, I was wondering if the points per level completed will show as 100 for gold or 121 for gold. I think it's best to have it be 100 and then have a separate calculation for each player for their bonus points. Is that possible? Perhaps one challenge will be that the points need to be appropriately applied to each level pack so they can't just be tacked on to the general TTC total points. But since I am not sure how your calcuations and systems are put together, I don't really know how difficult these types of changes will be. Maybe it can say 100 + 21 BP for gold, 99 + 17 BP for silver, etc etc... and then the level pack totals can say like 2300 points + 150 BP = 2450 total points. This way we can see the difference that the bonus points make for each player that earns them. Just wondering

    now when "arcade reality" is released i can finally come back to BoD!
    so the ranking will be probably changed tomorrow, along with other delayed issues like levelpacks and the BoD bugfix

    Should we also have bonus points for placing top 3 in a pack??? Or maybe the same bonus can be applied to the pack rankings? And then overall rankings???

    So if you are 10th in the pack, you also get the amount of BP 10th place gets on a level???

    Yes or no?
    Vega
    14128
    If you rank top 3 in any pack, that means you already have a mad amount of BP for that pack because you will get BP for every level that put you in the top 3
    bones
    dont forget silver is seventeen and.... my option was picked.YES i am in bod history forever. i am so glad.......crap vin will shoot so far ahead of me. that sucks.
    Sz
    levelpacks added, but the rest is postponed until tomorrow, i have to get some sleep...
