Proposal: West Coast Best Coast

Times out 1-2 with 2 unresolved DEFs. Failed by Brendan.

Replace the atomic action that occurs when a Player becomes Campione of at least two Games in the Crown Match with the following:

Create a Story Post naming the player who has become Campione of at least two Games in the Crown Match as the Capofamiglia


This game really shouldn’t come down to “who lives in the right timezone so they are awake when Kevan starts all the games and can respond to things like the Magician early”

against We should explore other options, like requiring Kevan to post the game start time schedules in advance.

posting game start time schedules in advance is both more work for Kevan, and doesn’t really solve the problem problems. Knowing he’s starting games at 7 AM PT isn’t gonna make me wake up at 7 AM.

Ultimately, making pegs a “this is how you win” mechanic, and having the main way of making pegs be through gambling means that success in the dynasty comes down to being active enough to watch and follow all the games so you can place optimal bets on them. And I don’t think that is very fun or productive gameplay. I’d rather just let the winner be the person who wins the championship matches.

of course

when this dynasty ends with Brendan pulling some scam to get the most pegs, at least I’ll be here to say I told you so.

My brutal reign of zero dynasties since 2016 continues to tarnish my image on the international stage.

definitely seems like your up to something with the pegs. not entirely sure what. might just be an opportunity to get a pooled victory chance. I just hope its a clever scam that makes people go “well played” and not something dumb we all overlooked like the “technically I can still bet on closed games” Josh’s proposal plugs

but if we remove that what even is the point of pegs

*shrug* I tried letting them be used for some small benefit to help you win your games but people shot the idea down

This erases Pass and Pass?

I thought you were generally abstaining from gameplay related stuff like this?

Clucky: he/him

03-04-2021 20:00:25 UTC

and no, it doesn’t erase that proposal. just the bits of it that modify the atomic action at the end because none of the other steps matter if we decide we don’t want to use pegs

Kevan: he/him

Fair enough, I read it as unintentional.
