It’s been a journey with the reset and a lot of mixed feelings about it. We would like for the whole community (players and moderators) to give us their thoughts on these suggestions that were forwarded to us so we can work with them and try make the competitive seasons more interesting and enjoyable. Let us begin.
The current quarterly season prizes are as followed:
Grand Prize: 3 Month Lab Pass
Top 5: 1 Month Lab Pass
Top 100: 1 Week Lab Pass
We were given a suggestion of this being the new quarterly season prizes, as the current prizes are a bit ‘bland’:
Grand Prize: 2 month Lab Pass + 15k cred
Top 5: 1 month Lab Pass + 12k cred
Top 25: 1 month Lab Pass + 8k cred
Top 50: 1 week Lab Pass + 5k cred
Top 100: 1 week Lab Pass + 3k cred
One month seasons were also suggested to us, as this would most likely keep every player more interested in gaining more kills to earn themselves a higher spot on the leaderboard. Some have brought to our attention that the 3 month seasons were a bit long about halfway through the season and that some were losing interest.
To see how this will work for everyone, we have agreed to let December be a season on it’s own, which in return could allow the Top 5 players to earn something a little more special than the regular prizes:
Grand Prize: 20 day Lab Pass + 4,000 cred + Customized Christmas spinner (choice of wreath or candy cane)
Top 5: 15 day Lab Pass + 3,000 cred + Christmas spinner (choice of wreath or candy cane)
Top 25: 10 day Lab Pass + 2,000 cred
Top 50: 7 day Lab Pass + 1,000 cred
Top 100: 5 day Lab Pass + 1,000 cred
New rule on alting:
If you’re found alting in any form, every account on your current IP address will be reset on the spot whether or not that account is on the leaderboard. This includes finding alts that were used for kills (accounts with 0 kills and 350 deaths for example). You will then be allowed to start from scratch to get back on the leaderboard, hopefully in a more legitimate way. We want this to be as legitimate and clean as possible, and hopefully we can achieve that goal with this.
The old rule still applies: if you have a past ban for illegitimate ranking (using hacks to gain kills), you will get permanently banned for alting on your first offense.
It was suggested that the max kills/deaths per game be lowered. As some of you know, I have disallowed the use of urinal maps and maze maps as it was a bit unfair to the other players who usually play FFAs, 2v2s, etc, getting 40+ kills over them a game. I said I would be ok with allowing these maps if the max kills per round was lowered. The two suggested max kills per game were 30 and 40.
We are still working on seeing about how an option or two will pan out, so I’ll keep quiet about those for now. If it’s confirmed we can do them I will make another post and edit the original post stating what they are.
Again, we would love to see your ideas, thoughts, and suggestions here about the above suggestions we were given.
Hope to hear from you guys!
