if im still not getting the point then please explain boldly what purpose would splitting it into 3 brackets actually serve?
my purpose is simple: i want to increase the amount of guilds who will be satisfied and motivated (within their difficulty and efforts they wish/can give) as those are the characteristics needed for a long term fun.
i understand that you want to give a positive "spike" to 3 guild league zones, the best ones middle and weaker ones offering them a peak reward for each of their league but you are missing something:
what matters more then the competition itself in here is the actual motivation to join that competition and the satisfaction for the efforts given, the mitivation could be measured in gems+units reward and the degree of difficulty to reach them
with a steady single bracket/league - if the rewards are just moved to give more on lower ranks it would would cover a lot more guilds motivated and possibly satisfied with the result
with your 3 bracket spread it totally doesnt make it.
yes you spread the rewards to 3 brackets making them lower but it doesnt solve the issue of difference how much is in the few top ranks of each bracket and how little is on the lower sides, so with 3 brackets it still runs down very fast to being not motivating cosidering the amount of gems+units offered vs the difficulty
for your math here
your top1 is as high as original top3
and your top 5 is as high as the original top 7-10
you gradually lower the motivation by two "reward brackets" therefore lowering the amount of ppl who will enjoy the guild wars by that much, example:
lets assume, for higher standard players, they are interested in getting at least 300 gems:
- the original table would make only 10 ppl happy, more or less 20 ppl actually motivated to fight for it,
- in your 3-brackets table there will be 6 ppl happy, more or less only 12 ppl fighting for it
assuming, for lower standard players, they are interested in getting at least 100 gems:
- the original table would make 50 ppl happy, more or less 100 ppl fighting for it?
- how many ppl do you think your table would reward with at least 100 gems? by my rought estimation by th look of it, it could be 25-30 ppl?
if you use analogy for the lower ranks - how is that better for the community overall?
how many more gems/units do you think devs would give to supplement the lacks of your 3-bracket system?
dont you see you are only rewarding and giving fun to very few ppl?
*by ppl i mean guilds
im not against the 3-brackets system in overall. i just dont want the method gems are distributed in it.
but again, i think one bracket would make much better results, if only it had the gems distributed better, which i suggested in:
in this i offered to lower the amount of higher standard (300gems) guilds happy to only 6, but instead the lower standard (100gems) guilds happy would increase from 50 to 100! thats a whole 50 more guilds being decently rewarded
do you really think giving a selected few guilds of lower standards a chance to win their top bracket rewards is worth making a tone of guilds lacking that rewards when otherwise they could get something?
im telling you - in neither of your 3 brackets it will be fun, it will be savage like the top pvp just spread a weird way and most of community will not bother to stress over trying to get that top few
if devs decided to give out more gems in total, i wouldnt put the extra in top5 (like you did) of any bracket - i would put them to lower ranks, possible r101-200 (and then respectively give more to lower and lower ranks) to make my suggestion even better for more guilds
and about ruining the fierce competition game for the top 5, top 10.. (or 3x top 5 in your case) by lowering their gems rewards in my proposition - nope they wont get any competition ruined! just look at pvp ranking: the rewards are pathetic for the efforts given yet they are all motivated and have a fierce competition. lowering guild rewards for the top will not harm them as they will always be satisfied with a title itself anyway (plus even with the lowered rewards as i offered its still pretty high compared to lower ranks)
