RayBanns General Discussions/Complaints/Suggestions
« on: July 23, 2014, 10:33:36 pm »

I am sorta drunk but I made this with the hopes we can solve our issues about this e challenge seriously and civilly.

It appears there are some probles with how the challenges are run and the actual content of the challenges. I am sick of people derailing the mods hard work to bitch so do it here please. Note that if you do not your posts will be deleted in those respective threads.

In order to adress the issues you have lets be organized, include info about the challenge, its number, and example submission if you need it to make a point.

You can also suggest ideas on how this could be improved

Thanks

IT APPEARS THAT SUM CHALLENGES R CHALLENGEFUL PLZ STOP THE GAME WILL BE RUINED 4EVER
STUPID ENTITLED CASULFAGS THAT BELIEB THEY CAN GET ALL THEM CHALLENGS EASILYY JUST BY PLAYIN 10 MINUTES A DAY
SUM OF THEM R HARDS N RNG GATED, OTHERS R EASY.
IF YOU'RE A FILTY CASUL THEN YOU'LL ONLY GET THE EASY ONES (AND STILL GET A PRIZE WHAT A JOKE KEK)
WHILE THE MLGGRANDCHAMPIONLORDS WILL RECEIVE ALL THE VIRTUAL SWAG THEY DESERVE

R CASUAL WORST THEN EU
OR R ALL EU CASULS?

Okay uh

How about a list of challenges that should not be used because of how they interact with real life.

Challenge 9 (Foreign carry) suffered this for multiple reasons:
-dependent on RL time (determines when a foreign server is up)
-dependent on location (distances are irrelevant, 12-mile borders are)
-dependent on pseudo-uncontrollable forces (what if foreign guy doesn't want to host)

Challenges should not depend on:
  • Uncontrollable factors:
    Things that depend on very specific things by other people (the Haxxy sighting one is kind of this), depend on time of day, etc
  • Impossible / unreasonable tasks:
    Challenges should not be like "cap 4/4 intel" because that punishes other people for wanting to win, and it punishes people who get 2/4 or 3/4 and then someone else caps
  • Require failure:
    Seriously, what's the point if a challenge is something like "lose to medic"? It detracts from the purpose of having GG2 be GG2

That should be it. I think there's one or two things I missed, but it essentially boils down to "does this challenge make me hate doing it", in which case the challenge should not happen.

more like
"does this challenge require me to take a lot of time out of my day to complete"
because the entire raybanns is founded on the idea that regular players can win something, not for those who have open schedules to win more than those who don't.
EDIT: or for those who have considerable skill/low-ping servers to play on

The challenges are reasonable, if you mean yesterday's challenge, there were euro and america servers to play in, and com' on, much newbies on them too.

I only really had problems with yesterday's challenge, because Bullet's server was the only one available when I had free time to play and I'm NA. Everything else has been okay with me.

These should be things that you can jump into any vanilla server and do. "You need lag to complete this challenge!!!" is just a silly idea in my mind, please find a more honest way to raise the difficulty next time.

But I agree with busta, the other challenges have been fine :c1:

Out of curiosity, how are you guys keeping tracking of the points? Did you set up a spreadsheet or something?

yesterdays challange (9) would've worked if we had a booming server community, but since we only have like 4 servers up at a time with most of them being in the states, the challenge becomes impossible, especially if you have other things to do in life that take importance over checking in on gg2 every 5 minutes

And then there's Naurudan.
Which lags the hell out of your computer, thus crashing it, which will make you never play the game. Ever. Again. See my Raybann thread challenge (the comic one) for more details.
Actually, it's just a comic explaining how horrible Brazilians are.

Today's challenge was super annoying not because of the requirements, but because of the people.

This one guy was screaming at the top of his keyboard lungs,

"CTF MAP WHEN"
"CTF MAP WHEN"
"CTF MAP WHEN"
"CTF MAP WHEN"
"CTF MAP WHEN"
"CTF MAP WHEN"
"CTF MAP WHEN"
"CTF MAP WHEN"
"CTF MAP WHEN"

And generally being a dick.

If a challenge turns people into whiny itemserver babies, is that the fault of the challenge or the person?
