Feedback Poll - Guess the Anime

Post by WoodyMC » Fri Nov 09, 2018 7:25 pm

I have received several complaints feedback stating that the first-come-first-serve gameplay we're using at the moment is unfair. This poll will be to decide which method should be implemented for the future guess the anime game:

Method 1 - First-Come-First-Serve: Basically what we have been doing. The first to guess the anime/hint get the points and the later one bites the dust. This will no doubts give the disadvantages to players who weren't online at the release time, but I plan to counter that by releasing different games at different time of the day.

Method 2 - Hide And Seek: Players will submit their guesses through PM without knowing if they did it right or wrong. The right answer will be released after a specific amount of time, and all correct guesses will be awarded by proper points. The rest of the unsolved questions are up for first-come-first-serve, if any. While this method makes sure the game will be more fair, sometimes it simply finishes after the answers are revealed. There will be no competitive elements like before, and players sometimes have only one try (when they submit their guesses through PM) before the game is over, while they may have 2 or more sounded theory of the correct answer in their head.

Of course, If you have any other ideas, do leave the suggestion in the topic. It might not be perfect but we can always work on it if there're potentials~

Personally I like how people can springboard off others' answers in method 1. To slow the game down and prevent one person from sweeping up all the easy ones, you could limit people to one or two total guesses per update. (By "update" I mean when the game master posts to confirm or implicitly deny people's guesses.)

To needlessly complicate things further, you could also accept private "final guesses" that do not count toward the guess limit. If a person makes a final guess on a series, they cannot guess on that series any more. Once somebody publicly guesses the series correctly, anybody who guessed correctly via private "final guess" also gets partial credit. Yay for needless complication.

Players will submit their guesses through PM without knowing if they did it right or wrong. Every hour, Woody will check answers and give points to players who made good guesses, every hint and good answers players found are revealed. And game continues with another try until everything is discovered.

So Woody can just watch once every answer by hour instead of constant update.
Everyone connected first hour have a shot, and not half questions done if you missed 20 first minutes.
Multiple people can get points for same hint (if they found out same hour).

It's option 2 but you can still get some help from others finding hints.
