a possible use of gamefunds
« on: August 04, 2015, 10:48:55 PM »
was thinking that now that we have random spawn + random banks and during disaster, coins carried when dying by poison are sent to gamefund, can't we distribuite them randomly on the map?

actually we have big areas (like the big 4 areas near center) that are big and with no value, if we drop coins randomly on the map, those "abandoned" areas could be more important

a way to know how much coin to distribute is just having a counter that consider the coins that goes to gamefund between two disaster, and take a % of it (50%?) so that we can distribute randomly some coin on the map, during the safe disaster period (we can extend the safe period too, to 3 days)
this way, having random coins on the map, would cause hunters to go there collecting, creating more pvp chances

Variant: if block height is divisible by 10000, let the game spawn 50% of the newly accumulated (during last 10k blocks by gamefund) coins, within 1 hour, in one of the big 4 areas (which one is known ~4hours in advance). And, yes, no disasters in this time.

I think that concentrating all that loot in a single hour isn't good, because people play worldwide and timezone is an issue, it should be more diluited to give all a chance to get something, this is why i proposed to extend disaster safe period to 3 days instead of 1

removing disaster could be an option, but disaster is another way to collect some gamefund and a way to "reset" (maybe i forget some other reason why disaster are good?)

If always at predefined block heights the "event" would wander through timezones, fair for everyone. And more players will participate if the approximate time is known in advance, and if the happy hour is set up in way that it will lead to some dramatic action and carnage.
