How about just give this prizes? (for their efforts)
From rank 1 to rank 150, the player(s) will receive Credits : 10.
From rank 1 to rank 500, the player(s) will receive Clintz : 2000.
From rank 151 to rank 1500, the player(s) will receive Credits : 5.
From rank 501 to rank 3000, the player(s) will receive Clintz : 1000.
Unfair point system I agree
but unfair also not to give any prices to those who tried it
You can compensate by giving only clint prizes for example
Checking if there was something known about my price since I haven't gotten it yet...
then I see this thread/ threat...
failing people who need to fix matches to win
for wasting 3 hours on friday for nothing
I actually canceled some stuff to complete the coliseum matches
why am I being punished for idiots fixing matches???
yow battery, redo mine in your own time man, wtf?
I mean... couldn't someone have seen someone was fixing his matches, since he was at an idiotic high with only 16 matches played????
Come on, intervene, punish THAT player, not me!!!
and then again, don't award idiotic amounts of points for timing out
I mean 17 points??? just award points for a normal win
and deduct that idiotic amount of the player who timed
there, problem solved, is it SO difficult??
really great UR!
Wait so nobody received their prizes? Did I miss something?
They created a game mode that "they" thought was good. It was riddled with dozens of flaws and only benefitted cheaters. They kept the game mode despite everyone hating it. What part did you miss?
I don't think everyone hates it, but it does have quite a bit of error in it. They're keeping it because they're trying to fix those flaws. The variable rules system is cool, but a single mistake from who's in charge of inputs can wreck the entire event. The play window is still too small for an international game (and the fight limit is a much fairer restriction), but they can't just jump straight to day long events, they have to work their way up to that.
The cheating is troublesome issue to be sure. It needs to be able to punish quitting and TOing without penalizing the receiver of said behavior and also avoid giving too much to them. Maybe making it so the quitter/time outer loses points and counts as a match for them, but the "winner" doesn't net any points nor counts as a match (the quit match wastes their time, but not their position). Perhaps giving a point or two (depending on event) to normal match loss to make quitting even less appealing. I don't know about programming, so I have no idea if this scheme is actually possible or reasonable for the staff.
The Coliseum mode, is in my honest opinion, one of the best modes ever created by UR
It's inventive, it's cool and it gives players yet another chance to get CR's
It brings eventplay to the masses and it gives us an opportunity to test out some wild decks ideas
For me it also gives me an opportunity to shake the dust of cards I haven't used in a looooooong time.
It goes wrong when the masses get "punished" for the workings of several cheaters
I think that people like me, who gave it their all and played fair should get the prices they deserve and played hard for to get
that's where my beef comes fro'; I feel cheated out my rightly deserved price
So I'd propose wat m2m2 is saying in post 52
and leave the card rewards out.
To finish it off;
- a real great mode!!!
- good idea and I love it
- looking forward to the next one!!!!
so please UR learn from mistakes made (as you've always proven you do) implement the right changes and let's go!!
"I actually canceled some stuff to complete the coliseum matches"
Please never let an online game get in the way of real life.
