Proposal: Limited Training

Timed out 1-4. Failed by card.

Adminned at 29 Apr 2017 23:48:09 UTC

Replace training section with:

As an action up to three times per day, once per each blogger on the manager’s team, a manager may perform the training action.

Training is an Atomic Action consisting of:

Paying $100,000

Declaring a primary and secondary stat (including a player’s level)

Rolling 1 DICE6 in the GNDT.
If the result is 1, decreasing both the primary and secondary stats by 1.
If the result is 2 or 3, doing nothing.
If the result is 4, increasing the primary stat by 1.
If the result is 5, increasing both the primary and secondary stats by 1.
If the result is 6, increasing the primary stat by 2 and the secondary stat by 1.

This would cause grinding. I’d prefer a diminishing returns system to a grinding fix.

[derrick] “Bloggers have a maximum stat and level which is calculated from their stats when they were first bought at the auction. They also have a maximum limit which is how much they can improve between [playing games, resting (which would be a new rule) or daily, not sure which is better].

The maximum they can increase a stat is calculated by [the stat at auction] * [Blogging Average]. The daily maximum stat increase is calculated by [maximum stat increase] * 0.01. Levels can only increase by 0.25 a day through training.”

Just something I thought might be a better alternative for limitations. Don’t forget that stats and levels are decimals and not integers.

We’d want to put those restrictions on PuPs too, probably harsher restrictions on PuPs, in fact.

I thought PuPs were going to be removed but yeah.

Even better.  I haven’t been keeping careful track of things here.

against let’s just get rid of PuPs and implement tiered training.
