Firm Consensus on what we want to do with our Org Funds.

Postby Captain Glume » Tue Feb 24, 2015 10:01 pm

My vote is to use it for prizes to keep us going until useful PU is here and we all chip in UEC to buy org stuffs.

Lets get chatting!

Just posting to say I've seen this, still trying to work out what I think we should be doing, so I'll come back after I've had a think.

Hadn't thought about it much; guess I'm with Arcbinder, need time think about it.

I'm mostly in agreement with using the org funds for prizes, but we do need to consider how long of a time we have to stretch things out. Even the first official "alpha" release is still 10 months away, and the real release of the game probably a year and half or more. I'd hate for us to give things away too quickly and then have nothing left. As long as we keep that in mind, we should be OK, though. It's not as if we are hemoraging funds, after all.

I believe that we should be used part of the money to start the Org fleet.

I also agree with Eris that any funds used for prizes should be stretched out. .

That Lightspeed package would be a nice prize for the first person to break into the top 5 on a leaderboard.

I don't believe any prizes should be awarded on the Leader boards, since the Leader boards have been going and some have been putting points into them for months and others have not. If the prize had been announced when the Leader boards had started it would have been fair to all, but there is too much of a head start for some.

Edit: Do the Leader boards reset?

Yes. I'm guessing they will reset for 1.1 since a lot will change. But I have no official idea of when and why they reset.

They appear to reset fairly often, corresponding with patches.
Seasons we've had so far are 9.0, 9.1, 9.2, 1.0.0, and 1.0.1.
As such, I think it's probably fair to run a contest based on leaderboard info after it has been reset.
