Clan points = competition points / 30.

Will it be rounded up, down, or off? (if rounded down, any competition point below 30 will award 0 clan pt?)

Also is it only awarded to the top 10 players?

I do round the clan points value down. However, I first sum up all of your subscores from each competition that you participated in, so that scoring 20 and then 10 results in 1 point, not 0.

Basically, instead of

I do

And, yes, only the top 10 are awarded points.

For the playoffs, can any skill be voted for, or just the ones that are already part of the competition? And what's the situation if one (or more) of the competitors has 200m in the skill selected?

You can only select one of the preselected skills.

If possible, we'll try to make sure that the top 5 competitors can compete in the playoffs by removing the skills people have 200m in from the list of skills. Of course, if someone with a lot of 200m's were to make it to the playoffs, to the point where they have a serious advantage that isn't indicative of their seeding, we'd have to have a serious conversation about replacing them with someone else.

Agility has been replaced by dungeoneering. If inventor fits our criteria for a competition skill, it will replace dungeoneering the season after its release.

Do you gain extra clan point for entering or winning the playoff?

Maybe for next season we can implement a minimum time played during the playoff in order to be eligible to receive the 25m prize? Something like 6 hours * the xp rate?

That's something I'd be willing to do.

I also want to do something about people getting really high scores under subscores 1 and 2. I was thinking of applying some sort of log function to score 1 and capping score 2 at 40. I have an exam on Friday, so I'll be busy studying for it, but I'll try to work out exactly what I want to do before Monday.

I'd love to hear more feedback. This is a project that always has room for improvement, but it's hard to improve it without knowing what needs to be improved.

Updated this season's points:

  1. Elves of Eve - 89
  2. Masterbuck1 - 83
  3. Got Nerded - 80
  4. Rugmonkey - 73
  5. Ein - 68
  6. Sac - 66
  7. Aether_Lie - 58
  8. Cato K - 55
  9. Monsters Inc - 53
  10. Enlen - 51
  11. Darth Darth3 - 50
  12. 5hour Energy - 41
  13. Craftedd - 40
  14. Eminem - 40
  15. Idk Whats Rc - 40

I decided to only cap the time played subscore to 40.

I decided against scaling the xp scoring logarithmically as it'd discourage players from participating when they have a large lead, and I don't think that's fair. I'll revisit this and consider a change for next season, as it certainly isn't fair for a player to win because they had a huge lead in one competition.
