Proposal: Targets of Opportunity 2: Precision Targetting

Reaches quorum, 5-0. Enacted by pokes.

Adminned at 18 Aug 2017 22:56:02 UTC

If “Targets of Opportunity” was enacted, this proposal has no effect.

In “Ticks”, change

If A and B are both targeting each other, rolling DICE20. If it is 1 through 10, missiles are exchanged, and both CICs lose two IE and gain 10 Recovery. If missiles are exchanged, this (including which two CICs were involved) should be announced publicly at the end of a Tick.


If A and B are both targeting each other, rolling DICE20. If it is 1 through 10, A and B are each Nuked by the other. When a CIC is Nuked, they lose 1/8 IE for each IE that CIC has at the beginning of the Tick, rounded randomly to a whole IE. For each IE a CIC loses this way, they gain 5 Recovery. A whole number W with a fractional part N/D is “rounded randomly” to W+1 if DICE(D) is less than or equal to N, or to W if it is greater than N.

Add a new bullet point to the end of the list of steps describing a Tick:

*Making a public post containing, at least:
  * Whether more politicians were agitating than smoothing.
  * Which CICs were Nuked, by whom, and how many IE they lost because of it.

Targets of Opportunity with less randomness and a little less hurt, should one prefer that. A “random rounding” has the minimal amount of randomness necessary to (expect to) lose a certain fraction of your IE without getting ‘shelves’ where 31 IE would lose you 3, but 32 IE would lose you 4.
