Proposal: Ok, Victory Condition, please with a lime on top?

Timed out 5 votes to 6, failed by Kevan.

Adminned at 26 Feb 2009 14:26:26 UTC

Create a new rule called “Ranking”

There exists an statistic that each Soldier other than the General has, called “Ranking”, which is not tracked in the GNDT. A Soldier’s Ranking is equal to their loyalty times their Experience.

At any time that the General’s Health is zero or less, the non-dead Soldier with the highest Ranking may achieve victory.

Lately the General has been seen spending too much time playing with his grenades. While this attitude is perfectly normal, and does not indicate any obvious mental health issue, High Command must take measures to ensure that our glorious military operation will continue as planed despite any eventuality that might occur. Refusing to acknowledge this important issue would lessen or capability to respond on the face of an Enemy offensive, and in our ability to properly dispatch hand grenades.

I don’t see why we need a victory condition so badly, but I like this.

for for now, though pending good combat rules I have something else in mind.  You guys might want to start picking sides with your loyalty…

against arrowThis proposal does not seem to allow for the possibility that the Enemy wins. We can defeat the Enemy without such artificial aids, and doing so would be a lot more impressive than a legally inevitable victory.

against  Because this prevents people with negative loyalty from winning. Ranking should absolute value of loyalty (times XP of course).

for Though it is awful to have to consider such a possibility, the Good Fight must continue to be fought beyond the death of our great and glorious leaders.

Actually, absolute value makes more sensse.

NEUTRAL! Just XP, no loyalty, I say.

If people want to win through negative loyalty, they should propose something to that end instead of voting down on this one.

arthexis:

Furthermore, losing loyalty is so incredibly easy that it is not even funny. Why give victory to bad players?

Qwazukee:

Voting this down has practically the same effect. Actually, according to you, it would be better to vote this down than to pass a corresponding negative loyalty law.

And besides, having a low loyalty does not make one a bad player. It makes one an inquisitive player, willing to consider all sides of this engagement. After all, we don’t even know for sure that the enemy exists.

Having low loyalty does not make one a bad player. It’s just that it is mostly the bad players who currently have low loyalty… (except for Darknight, he is cool)

5-5.

LOL thanks for that art.

An Admin should please fail this.

I make it 6-5 with Arthexis’s vote, but think I’ll CoV to make it 5-6:-
