Proposal: The Test & Drugs

Times out 5-1. Enacted by pokes.

Adminned at 19 Apr 2017 20:55:31 UTC

Append to the rule “Performance Enhancing Drugs (PED)” the following

A Manager may drug a Blogger they employ if they have more than zero PEDs and doing the following atomic actions:
1 Subtract a number between 1 and the number of PEDs they currently have.
2 Track on the Blogger’s bio the number of PEDs subtraced in a variable titled “Roids”

When a drugged Blogger plays a game they play with X extra levels, where X is log base 2 of that Blogger’s Roids rounded up.

If a blogger was drugged during a game, after that game they lose thta status and their Roids are set to 0.

Under “Gameplay” add the following step befre the final atomic action:

* A random 10% chance for each Blogger that they are tested. If they are tested and drugged, that information is included in the results of the game.

Here’s a good logarithm caclulator

lol I just posted a similar mechanic at the same time

I prefer this mechanic to the other one. Diminishing returns, less swingy, and includes testing. Check, Check, Check.

Math could be cleaned up a little though (in terms of explanation, not mechanics, really).

[derrick] This is an example of a log that’s base 3, for people not into math.

What you’d want to do is have a log2(Roids) and round that result up, anything else that’s lacking explination?

explanation without using mathematical might be nice: Certainly nothing that will prevent me from voting on it.

1: +0
2: +1
3-4: +2
5-8: +3
9-16: +4
17-32: +5
33-64: +6
65-128: +7
129-256: +8
and so forth.

Although there should probably be some consequences for being found out.

I left that for other people to decide, since I couldn’t think of anything that I liked.

Maybe a fine?  Blogger gets made inactive, meaning you can’t play matches while they are out of action?

[Oracular] Don’t take a survey in the comment section, make a proposal.

for I also like the idea of the added fine.
