Welcome to the Weekly Monday Discussion studio, unfortunately DatBirb is on vacation this week so AreteBirb is filling in
AreteBirb: Well, in any case, last week we surveyed you on how many games you wanted us to run at once.
Audience: If the poll says we’re running three games at once, then why are we only running two?
AreteBirb: After some testing, we determined that having three games running at once causes them to take longer to fill, and causes players to feel stretched thin between games.
Anyways, for this week, we have another hot topic for you to discuss. From an anonymous viewer:
I think at this point we have a pretty good idea of what we should be doing – like, most of the recent scum wins could have been averted by people actually following the Townplay Improvement Advice, the problem isn’t that people don’t realize that you should work with other villagers/reevaluate in LyLo/etc.
however, despite knowing what to do, people don’t seem to be … doing it
how do we fix this
Does anyone have any suggestions?
what if we do an “award” system somehow.
create a thread to highlight the players who had the most impact on the game, tried their hardest, or improved the most
(this also includes scum/neuts, i dont discriminate)
give them a title for a month to show off their awesomeness
maybe people need incentive to try harder
AreteBirb: That’s an interesting idea! It’s been tried in the past and was somewhat controversial, but it’s possible that it would work better now, particularly with some minor changes.
Poll: Should we create awards to recognize players who tried hard, improved a lot, or performed well in a given game?
Don’t tune out now – we also have a few more questions for our viewers.
Question 2: What categories would you want to see if this was implemented?
In the past, the categories used were Top Town, Top Scum, and Most Improved.
