Dinocanid Posted July 21, 2017 Share Posted July 21, 2017 (edited) I'm in the process of creating a way for users to enter their pets in contests. The idea is that they enter a pet and the contest runs on a specific day. You can only enter contests on specific days as well, to prevent sniping. The pet with the highest of a specific stat has the highest chance of winning (there will be different contests for different stats or stat sets), but I don't want that pet to win all the time since then they could continuously enter and nobody else would ever win. Users can breed for better stats, but I don't want a situation where one person dominates the field and wins week after week. Here are some ways I think would prevent this: Contests are already divided into tiers (placing top 3 moves you up one), so each tier could have a maximum stat count. This prevents players who played longer from constantly crushing the newbies Cooldown times for winning. If you win a contest, you can't enter that same contest the next week. Retirement. Pets don't age on my site, but maybe one pet can only enter a limited number of contests? It adds to strategy, and gives more incentive to breeding more adopts instead of maintaining just the best one.
