Default Win Free Game Cards Mushroom Competition

Hi,

This is Gandalf with Be Cool on s9.sfgame.us

We've got a great group of members, but gameplay is getting a little stale since the server is not as populous as other servers. I thought I would kick it up a notch by offering a Game Card Mushroom Competition. However, I need your help to lay out the ground rules. Our lowest member is in the 150-175 range and our highest member is in the 275-300 range. I wanted to offer prizes in the form of mushrooms (or game cards).

Shroomers
1st - $10 game card

Non-Shroomers
1st - $15 game card
2nd - $10 game card
3rd - $5 game card

I figured I could do 150-175, 175-200, 200-225, 225-250. That would be a total of 16 prizes and $160 in game cards which would comprise almost 1/3rd of our guild receiving prizes. This is just an idea, can you guys help me figure out the rules, prizes, etc.?

I was thinking
150-175 - 15 levels
175-200 - 12 levels
200-225 - 9 levels
225-250 - 6 levels

Something that falls within the curve (and can be split out into 2 categories shroomers and non-shroomers. Anyway, just an idea I thought you all could weigh in on.

First is this a in guild contest only or a server wide contest I assume it is for your guild only but you don't state that in your thread.

2nd how do you plan on giving the prizes as you say you are giving out $5,10, and 15 prizes by game cards I have only ever seem $25 game cards. other then that breaking it down to shroomers and non shroomers and by every 25 levels is fine but considering that under 200 and over 200 might be a good breaking point as well. With those over 275 having there own and just picking top 3 in each or top 1 as u would have 18 winners if u do 3 per bracket or 3 for top player.

Yes, while this is only for my guild (since this is my money) I thought it would make a good template for future competitions. We only have 5 players above 250 in our guild and I think they would rather pass the free mushrooms to our lower players. Half of our guild comprises of 170-200 so I can focus the amount of prizes more toward that group.

I have few questions about competition to you, Gandalf:
- when will competition start (date)?
- what are biggest difference between shroomers and non-shroomers category?
- when i have 50% mount and only 100 thirst daily (300 on xp/gold events), i will be in shroomers or non-shroomers category?

First of all .... CONGRATULATIONS! You were the first guild member to reply to this thread, so you've already won an Ultimate Game Card!

The mushroom competition will start in-game shortly, but I'll need everyone's help to ensure it is fair and fun.

A competitive shroomer is someone who buys mushrooms on a regular basis. Most players who fit this definition will be playing 300 thirst per day.

A casual shroomer is someone who rarely buys mushrooms. The players who fit this definition usually play 100 thirst per day (some exceptions for certain weekend or special events).

A non-shroomer is someone who does not buy mushrooms.

A competitive non-shroomer is someone who takes advantage of free mushrooms, and strategically uses them during special events.

--------

I expect the competitive shroomers probably will not need to play in this event, so it will probably come down to casual shroomers, and both non-shroomers.

i think
it 's difficult to measure lvling! so i am thinking that you should give price to!
150-175 who lvl up high. 2 of them give price! or top 3
175-200 pick top 2 of them and give them price! or top 3
200-225 pick top 2 of them or top 3
225-250 pick top 2 of them! or top 3
so there will be 8 players! who will get prices! or you can choose top 3 also! so there wil be 3 prices!
1st should be of $100 or atleast $50
2nd should be of $50 or atleast $25
or if you want
3rd should be of $25 or atleast $10

and the biggest thing is ! your prices! i was expecting it should be of $100! atleast to rank.1
bcoz they are doing hard work!
thanx

If I have only 3 prizes ($100, $50 and $25) then the shroomers will be interested and the non-shroomers will not be able to win.

By offering prizes based on categories and levels, I will not be able to offer such high amounts.

If I am going to invest $100 or $200 into this contest I would rather it be broken up into multiple prizes so everyone gets a fair shot.

The amount of prizes will be dependent on the amount of interested members.
