Thoughts on this? Should purist move back up to 4 points from 3?

Well, skipping it can practicaly guarantee you Miser and Cheeky, possibly Parched, if not Warmonger (wich is really hard to pull off alongside with it in most cases). Maybe bump it up a bit more.

I mean, we have no prep overview on the score screen, or a worship log, those things really ought to count into scoring. Reason being, VICIOUS rewards are unbalanced by default, and simply skipping purist allows for a massive power increese.

Good points. I'm leaning towards pushing purist back up to 4 points, anyone want to argue the other side of the stick?

When would I have to post? My earliest would probably be 3:15 EST, and that could be up to 4:00 after the update release. I'll host if that's fine.

Perfectly fine. Just make sure that the thread is up and visible on Thursday evening and then do your best to launch the contest as soon as the update goes live on Friday morning.

Alright. So we want to make another individual thread? Why not put it on the master thread?

Sorry my post will be late. The update is in the middle of my work day.

Master thread will become cluttered too quickly if we do it that way. This way we have one thread for rules and planning, and one thread for the actual contests themselves. I will maintain this one and link to the individual threads as they're created in the main post, so this will serve as an index.

Awesome. We'd best get it stickied. It can replace the one with pictures of getting screwed by RNG.

My only complaint is that reducing that and reducing Warmonger changes the max score from 30 to 28.

It's an incredibly minor nitpick of course.

Edit: If Warmonger goes down and Purist goes up, then the score stays the same. I R DUMM :oops:

After punching a few numbers based on submissions in round #3, I'm absolutely certain purist needs to go back up to 4 points. It's almost negligible to the overall community scoring. As of this writing, the relatively scoring importance of each badge is:

Warmonger (426)
Hoarder (356)
Unstoppable (345)
Parched=Miser (315)
Faithless (267)
Ding! Max (224)
Cheeky (129)
Specialist (115)
Purist (72)

So it looks like Purist really needs to be a 4-pointer. Faithless is still a low-performer even at 4 points, so it's definitely not going back down to 3. Again, please note that Ding! Max, Cheeky, and Specialist only score lowly because they're worth so few points. If you analyze strictly based on frequency they're by far the most dominant badges. Hoarder, unstoppable, parched, and miser look to be about right. Warmonger, as I've already mentioned, isn't very useful data; all Berserkers went for it, no Wizards/Transmuters did. None-the-less, we will try moving it down to 5 points for the next competition and see where it goes from there.

TL;DR - purist should be 4 points, warmonger 5 points, keep everything else where it is.
