Call for Judgment: Economy Fail Is Correct

Times out Popular, 5-0. Enacted by Brendan.

A proposal changed the way that Bouts pay out was enacted at the end of July that I didn’t notice, and no-one noticed me not noticing, so the end of Bout payouts have been wrong for half the dynasty. Oops!

The rules currently state that all participants in a Bout get 1000+500 per other bot; I’ve been behaving as if just the winner gets 2000 and the loser gets nothing. This has affected every Bout since Bout 20.

This CfJ suggests giving losers their money but letting winners have their bonuses, as the alternative is to unwind too much of the dynasty.

Uphold that the money values awarded to Bots at the end of every Bout to date are correct, and then adjust the Money held by the following Operators or idle Operators as follows, or setting their Money to 20,000 if that value would be exceeded:

Lendunistus +1500
Maldor +3000
SingularByte +4500
SupernovaStarbright +3000
Trapdoorspyder +3000
chiiika +3000
Raven1207 +3000

On one hand, my mistake. On the other, no-one else noticed.

The main reason I’d push for infinite money is because the mistake doesn’t just affect the matches that happened, it also affects the possible future ones that would have been won due to having more money due to better parts. After all, the dynasty is one where the rich get richer (speaking as the player with one of the top 2 net-worths in the dynasty).
