101 EP

Post by tainn » Tue Mar 31, 2020 5:26 pm

101 EP, or 101 Enhancement Proposal, is a thread born from the original 101 thread, following a similar base idea, but incorporating some crucial changes and limitations for the sake of fair comparison.

The idea is for players to be able to post screenshots of situations where they achieved a score of 101 in-game. These cases are then individually summed-up and presented on a leaderboard for all to see. However, to upkeep some fair comparison between these achievements, some maps are blacklisted and therefore not eligible in the EP.

The map blacklist and leaderboard can be accessed through here. Note that both change dynamically.

If you believe any map or map-type should be added to or removed from the blacklist, considering the direction and goal the blacklist is trying to achieve, feel free to either send me a private message or post on this thread, including your argumentation for or against that specific map.

The leaderboard count from the 101 thread does not transfer to the EP leaderboard, meaning that all players start anew from the time of this thread's creation, with the added limitations in-place. That includes the achievements on maps that would otherwise be eligible in EP.

Going from revision 3 at the time of this writing.

Code: Select all

do not follow the principle of "one kill, one point"
reward points for aspects other than killing your opponent
were run locally
have been present on the server list for less than 3 months in a row
largely allow or encourage spawnkilling or camping to take place
do not follow the principle of "one kill, one point"
This would would exclude QuickShots and from the mix, even though it is a map which requires good skill and time to reach 101.
reward points for aspects other than killing your opponent
Needs clarification as indirect methods such as useless mines or geno, which may violate spirit or interpretation of rule.
were run locally
Makes perfect sense. (We did have people who used to rake up high scores with bots.)
have been present on the server list for less than 3 months in a row
Seems alright for now.
largely allow or encourage spawnkilling or camping to take place
Spawnkilling makes sense, but camping does not, as in some maps or forms of camping require quite a decent amount of skill to do.

Additionally, the following should be considered for listings.
1. Maps must be solely hosted by public servers.(This prevents any technicalities.)
2. Maps must require a decent level of strategy and tactics.(We're not playing checkers or go.)
3. Maps must be for 4 or more players. (Too easy to rig scores with limited number of slots.)
4. Scores should only be recorded for maps one has not made.(Otherwise people may make maps which have features that only one is aware of.)
5. Server must be set to disallow bots from running/joining.(Otherwise one may join bots to quickly build up score.)

Thank you for your feedback, Zehra. I have updated the gist and included your 5th point proposal. Addition summary can be seen below.

Blacklisted maps include any maps that:
  • allow the inclusion of bots

Urban Jungle

Should note that Misadventure was a part of the entire run as well, but had to leave moments earlier; thanks for the great time!

Yep, I bailed out when you hit 98, so that my score last night would not be immortalised here - a trick learned from Mana. ;o)
Again, well played!
