Proposal: Hostiles Per Gallon

Reached quorum 5 votes to 1. Enacted by Kevan.

Adminned at 06 Jul 2015 20:49:40 UTC

In “Convoys”, replace “A Tribe may start a Convoy by posting a blog entry whose title” with:

A Tribe may start a Convoy by spending 2 Fuel and posting a blog entry whose title

Hadn’t thought about it until comments on the previous proposal, but Convoys costing 2 less Fuel than the number of zones on their route seems a bit unintuitive.

against I actually think it’s a good thing it’s a little cheaper.

Why? Under the current rule each player can launch five Convoys per day. This change would restrict them to one.

That’s not really my point. In any case, does it really make sense to spend Fuel for the first Zone?

The Convoy starts, but somebody forgot to fill it up before we left. Dang it, Steve! Oh well, guess we’ll use that Fuel we were going to use when we entered [nearby Zone] now.

I don’t know where I was going with that. Anyway, I’d much prefer if this said 1 Fuel and not 2.

1 Fuel probably does make more sense, I was just trying to keep the calculations simple - if your route list contains 5 Zones, it costs you 5 Fuel.

Actually, we really shouldn’t be starting on the second Zone of the route any more, now that Tribes have to fight their way into enemy Zones. Maybe that’s the only fix we need.

That… That sounds like it’d do it.
