After some discussion with fellows, I thought I'd propose the following revamping of the pod breakdown. The main idea change is to put people into pods with others who they are already connected with somehow. I've attempted to do that where possible. Feel free to comment as your heart dictates.

Freefall

Dragon

Chameleon or Platypus would be cool animal choices :) Oh and love the revamp by the way... I think having existing friends will be a great incentive for the pod system to function better. It will also aid in some good old fashioned friendly competition which will help everybody grow and have fun doing it. Good job and well thought out Gregore!

Platypus it is!

Great news!
Our own Draconic Communicator- ArnoldElfman has come up with a boffo incentive system/additional layer of gamification for us all! From now until December 5th, players will be rewarded 1k per level gained above and beyond their current level as recorded by him earlier today. Further! The pod with the greatest total gain between now and December 5th will garner an extra 50k to be distributed among the members of their pod. Whatsmore! Players have the opportunity to donate to the fund to pay for the whole incentive structure. Also! Head Arms Trainer- Freefall may or may not offer a fancy, non gender specific title to the top players in terms of advancement.

Here are our starting levels followed by our pod's total level:
Cephalopod
ArnoldElfman 118
Barrett 176
EliasDaniel 165
Fizban 145
Freefall 95
699


Dragon
airman 111
cuy 143
FireChaosKing 97
fireball1 100
ousley01 114
565


Elephant
CreationOfOz 110
Gregore 157
Gynn 72
NicoRobin 71
Plantoid 52
462


Ghost
AlphaGhost 83
Arg 130
bludove 155
DemonicV2 142
Omen 30
540


Moth

Yep! Probably just pocket change for you, but there's a considerable amount of prestige that goes with it- especially if Freefall awards special titles.

A bit more, ArnoldElfman will be awarding the money weekly after he updates the level totals.

Further! Spread the word around the guild as you see folk around, forum dwellers, so that our fellows might know of this wonderful opportunity.

There's more! I added a list of players who've donated to the guild fund which is used to fund both this incentive program, other special events, and branch construction.

I personally like Otters. I am sure we will be perfectly fine as Otters.

masterqueef is leveling very efficiently. I am sure he will make the mark before the deadline.

Now that I think about it, I met along my travels a lot of players from the guild. The reason I feel the pod system is very limited is because we do not have a separate guild list to go along with the friend list. I am not able to add all of the member of the guild to my friend list. The people I most often see, not including my current pod mates, are: Gregore, ataak, coke_na_rc, Barret, and pooface. I am sure I have met many more but for only a brief moment.

We should have some events where the guild meets. I know Revivified and I would like to get a group to go into GVG to get our rating back up.

Let me know if anyone wants to test their bronze in real player combat for the sake of our guild.

You got it.

The pod system was actually an attempt to address the limitations of the Friend List. The idea being that it's easier to find room for four people than for 39.

I'm all for supporting more GvG. The game system is flawed- you can't always tell where people are- but we have several members who are interested. If you want to get a group together, I'd talk to all of Dragon Pod, pooface, Freefall, NicoRobin, and me (if I'm not too busy chatting- my Guild Rage is helpful). Solicit other guild members, as well, but those are some I believe are interested.

kinda hard to level on this stage @242, how bout adding up 50k for levels 200+, only a proposal,

less 100 would be 1k per level
100+=1.25k
200+=1.5k
300+=2k
so on and so fort..



btw, im off to guild wars for now.. im still lacking on strength and def.

Good news! Glorious Leader Gregore forgot that I just now in this post changed the deal without telling him because I don't feel it's enough. Each week the pod with the highest total level gain will get 15k to be split between its members as the pod sees fit. I would suggest some weighted form based on levels gained or just a straight 3k to each player. After the 4th week(the finale week) the amount to be split is 75k! Again this will be up to the pod to split, with any arguments being mediated by myself or Gregore.

These weekly awards are on top of the 1k per level per person!

Maybe the 1k per level won't mean much to you personally but getting your pod mates involved will help you in the long run.
So rally your pod members into leveling any way possible and you can win more monies! Don't forget the actual emphasis on leveling will inherently gain you cash from the monsters as well!

Excellent!
So, if I'm reading this correctly, members get 1k per level plus a potential 15k per week for the Pod that advanced the most PLUS 75k for the pod that advanced the most over the entire month? Splendid!

You have read that correctly. 120k plus 1k per level gained will be given out. I just turned 3 books into 140k so I should have enough for the first week and we'll figure out how much we will need based on that first week.

What a deal!

How does the system handle recruitment? Although it's not ideal, in this world we see a lot of people come and go. Should a pod replace a member with a higher level member, is that counted as a level gain?

Thanks to the speed of the storm's movement- the damage was less than expected. The typhoon didn't linger over the country. Still, people died. People are hurt.

Selling at 60% for Guild

Postby Phearsom » Fri Nov 08, 2013 9:44 pm

Hi All,

Some of you already know, but I do resale for guildies at 60%. Revivified, Coke_na_rc, Masterqueef, Conkle5, Pooface, and a couple more have already benefited from this.

The system I do is I first deposit 100% of my money that is on me, get the items and sell them to store. This way it is a lot easier to give amount than calculate it all out. If you are skeptical of this ask these players above to see, I want to help the guild as much as possible.

I believe ataak does this as well.

Just let me know in forums or in game if you need to sale stuff.

I can vouch for Phearsom. His pod has also been doing a lot of GvG play. Otter Pod is potent!
I can confirm that ataak and BarrettM82A1 offer 60%. EliasDaniel also offers a good rate- but I'm not sure if it's 60% or not. Check out the Merchants section on the initial Click to Talk forum post.

For our Incentive Initiative, we still need to determine what happens when a Pod recruits a new player. My thought is that the difference in level should count toward the pod's score provided it's positive and the kicked player is inactive.

I'd also like to add prominent branch members to the Pod system. I think they should be able to take part in events like this. For the most part, that is just going to mean active branch leaders- Omen, schoofalof, Tanp, and rex24602 do a lot more for the guild than many Click to Talk members.

Which brings us to our newest branch- CTT Public Works. I'm very excited about this branch because I think it's mission (help the public) and its leader (Omen) both are worthy and full of potential. Omen and whoever she takes on (I think she's going to be doing more vetting than your typical branch leader) will be accepting donations- I think low level gear and apples are appropriate- for distribution among the populace. If you find yourself with, say, a dozen trash can lids, send them her way. I'm sure the feeling brought about by giving is worth more than the cash you'd get from selling them. Apples for everyone!

lets say were from 800+ then ive recruited a 200+ level that would be 1k in all?..

ohh.. hey there everyone.. why's the forum not so popular to most players?..

i also kill a player whos on the guild in gvg, about two, was that count on our gvg kills?

The forum has not been advertised due to an agreement between Robert and newgrounds.com. Further, some people hate forums, it seems- although it's hard to be certain as to how many people are lurking.

The people you killed in GvG must've been from our branch guilds- elsewise you couldn't kill them there. It should count for our total. Hey! Maybe we need a CTT Straw Men?

After thinking it over and discussing it with some notables, I would like to start adding the active branch leaders (Omen, rex24602, wizard5305, Tanp, and schoofalof) to the trunk guild pods. Arnie, can we add them to the competition next week?

Over 10000 are believed dead in The Philippines.

Branch Leaders have been placed in their own pod- Tree Pod- for the duration of the Incentive Competition. They will be entered into the competition proper this coming Wednesday- they'll be a week behind. Tree Pod will be chopped up at competition's end and its members dispersed to the eight standard pods.
Omen is not in the Tree Pod because she was already in Ghost Pod when the competition began. And so she shall remain.

If you want to contribute to the relief effort in The Philippines:
