For future events like this one , here's what i suggest :
For 25 days of event = 12 comps + 13 missions .( normally )Main leaderboard for prizes ?:
Yes. But points would be obtained by : doing the missions and / or getting a top 20 score in the comps .Missions :
They would give 10 points if completed , each . Based on 25 days in December ( duration of the event ) this would mean 13 missions = 130 points possible .Comps :
A top 20 score would give a specific amount of points , being : 1st = 20 pts , second = 19 pts and so on, to the 20th place receiving 1 pt .
Number of comps would be 12 in December .The regular prizes and trophies would still be given for top 10 .
Now ,for the main leaderboard and some trophies and prizes , EW just need to determine the scale of numbers and associate a prize and trophy to each section / levels . Maybe giving away a trophy for as low as 150 pts for example . One that is able and whiling to do only the missions and maybe a comp or two that he thinks he can get top 20 or top 10 , would have a chance at a trophy .Attempts for comps :
I suggest a limit of 5 attempts .This will reduce certain techniques of hunting and make for interesting competition .
Since they are mainly about 2 days long each, this limit is way enough , imo . Players just need to manage their games / attempts better .I think this way would bring ALL of us to participate at the same level
One that as less time than another , would still be competitive and have his chances . No need to SM and grind no more
. Even those fellas would still
be able to participate .
No major advantage for no one . All style of play . I have 1hr free to play , lets try my luck in a comp or do that mission. I have all day , lets be more careful and think my hunt .
About the comps being in multi or single , well , you know what i think about that . Single player for comps is the way to go, unless
you have a team orientated comp .
This is my general idea
for future major events like the Holiday one . All the numbers can of course be changed to EW's liking .
We need to make that actual points system better , or replace it with something else .
