Proposal: Fixing a little bug

Timed out and failed, 1-5. Josh

Adminned at 03 Aug 2022 17:45:39 UTC

Reword the Effect of the System called “LED Banner” to the following:

Displays the name of every distinct Operator and idle Operator that this Bot has defeated in a Bout while using this System; these names are publicly tracked. Has no other effect.

Clearing up a small ambiguity in the wording of LED Banner. Also changed it to also include anybody that might go idle later on in the dynasty

This, uh, sure does offer an advantage to Trapdoorspyder and no one else.

Not the most subtle

That said, Player and Operator are synonyms in the ruleset, with neither term offering a distinct profile with regards to tracking idleness; so if your desired effect is genuinely for this to give you an open advantage then it’s currently not doing so then you may want to change it to “Operator or idle Operator” instead.

I admit that this proposal is in a way somewhat self serving. However, it does represent fixing something that was most likely not intended by the original wording, and there is something to be said for also fixing exactly which Bot that LED Banner refers to.

In that case, why not make the banner refer to Bots, not Players?

That’s actually not a bad idea

(Don’t forget to adjust Showboating too, if you’re going that route.)

Don’t worry, I didn’t leave that behind.

Hm, I hate to be billy-points-out-scams, but that reduces the operative cabal to two, as Operators can change the name of their Bot at any time in a way that arguably makes them distinct Bots.

Oh, that’s fair.

against for the aforementioned one-beneficiary reasons.
