Proposal: Victory Raffle

Popular, 7-0, with more than a Quorum FOR. -Bucky

Add a new dynastic rule to the ruleset. Call it “Team Victory” and give it the following text:

When the Poindexter determines that a dynastic rule has Awarded a Crown to a Corporation, the Poindexter shall choose a random Pilot whose Affiliation was that Corporation when the Crown was Awarded. The selected Pilot achieves victory, and the Poindexter shall make a blog post announcing it.

If a Crown is Awarded to a Corporation, but there is no Pilot whose Affiliation was that Corporation when the Crown was Awarded, nobody achieves victory as a result of that Crown.

I just realized

Wouldn’t this force affiliations to be small?

Because if I weren’t already in a corporation already, I’d want to optimize my chances by joining the corporation with the least members to optimize chances of winning if my corporation was Crowned

In fact,

Coderblaze would be obligated to invite no one into that cases…..

Raven1207, we don’t have a Crowning mechanism yet, but I would assume that a corporation with multiple members would have an easier path to being Crowned than one in which one member has to do everything.

It’s the “Poindexter shall choose a random Pilot whose Affiliation was that Corporation when the Crown was Awarded. The selected Pilot achieves victory” thing I’m talking about. If I really wanted to win, I would want my corporation small to have more higher odds.

Yes, but presumably whatever conditions there will he to achieve a Crown will be easier the more people you have in your corporation. The idea is that if you have a very small corporation you are more likely to win if you get the Crown, but less likely for your corporation to actually get it, while if you are in a large corporation it is less likely for you to win if you get the Crown, but more likely that your corporation will get it.
