Horn_iest sheep competition condition

Postby Vanatorul_Roman » September 29th, 2021, 11:16 am

In the current Horni_est sheep competition, the condition states:

"The highest scoring Bighorn of your first 3." By "first three" I understand the ..first three, not top 3. Do you ? The competition, so far, took into account everythting I killed. I killed 12 sheep, the last one had 165 + and the competition took it into account. So I think , the author must change into "top 3" and not "first three", does that make sense ?


Also the calculation formula must be wrong because it exhibit a media of 165.6692. I made myself the math and the media calculated is 166.2730. I think that the 0.604 score difference is important enough to count, I would've gained another place up, don't you think ? So what is happening ?


6 Viola 168.5827
7 tatupeba 166.4566
8 Rocco_the_Hunter 165.6692
9 EddyGard 165.1966
10 Tempelton 163.9763



These are my values, you can check for yourself the summ.

Didn't look into the math but if is average of top 3 then the language is not just misleading but completely incorrect and needs to be fixed.

"The highest scoring Bighorn of your first 3." Doesn't say anything about "Average", "Media" or "Medium" ( I assume you mean "average")

You first 3 were 46.0638, 42.9528, 143.5433. So I would think your leaderboard score should be 143.5433.

If the text is wrong, and it's just "Highest Scoring" you should have a 184.9607
It's "Tod", with one bloody 'd'!

He has killed way more than 3 and his score is still changing as he gets better scores is how I read this, so it appears it is average of top 3 and the info shown in the comp is incorrect.

Indeed. But since the posted scores on the leaderboard are actual individual animal scores, I would think it's not an average. Unless both the description & the programming are wrong??

Didn't notice the scoring matched some of his harvests. Still something odd of course. Checked his hunt history and scores def do not match up with first 3 killed or even first 3 males. He now has a 185 score taken during his next attempt. Based on how such 'descriptions' work in other comps only the first 3 overall (regardless of number of attempts) should potentially count.

Perhaps a dumb question, but has anyone reached out to support/devs to report this? A similar thing happened to hubby a long time ago. I sent a msg to (at the time, Pucu) and it was fixed shortly after, as I recall.
Working 2 jobs doesn't leave enough time for hunting! :(

It looks like something is definitely wrong with the scoring, or the wording of this competition. I'll move the thread to the bug report section.

The comp should only count the highest-scoring sheep out of the first three you kill, male or female. Thanks for bringing this to our attention, we'll take a look.
