The Old Republic:Scoring

Jump to navigationJump to search

These are thoughts on adding TOR to the session scoring. When responding with thoughts/ideas either use the talk page, or add 2 new lines, comment, and then put ~~~~ (4 tildes) after your comment. That will sign your comment for you

Also, I'm going to call all this Multi-player unless otherwise noted.

General stuff

Logging in, per day: 2 points

I log in every day, YAY! How do I prove it? Joshua Hawkins 08:07, 24 May 2012 (EDT)

How about just sending an email to an admin toon upon login? one of your toons and one of Daryus's when you log in? that will timestamp automatically, right? --Sconn 15:56, 24 May 2012 (EDT)

That would work for me!--Daryus ZalynCya 01:49, 25 May 2012 (EDT)

That would require someone to log in every day/night to verify. Not to mention, how many people are going to forget? or even want to do this? I'm ok with it, people can email me all they want, I don't mind. Joshua Hawkins 06:08, 25 May 2012 (EDT)

I don't think someone would HAVE to log in every day to check. Like...if I log in every day, M-F and send you an email every day, but you don't log in until Saturday, those emails are still gonna be sitting in your inbox, so you could just check it on the weekend and credit me 10 points. If people forget to email you when they're logged in, well, that's their problem. It's just like if they forget to take a screenshot when reporting a flight sim. --Sconn 14:19, 25 May 2012 (EDT)

Guild Bank Credit Contributions

1K credits = 1 point. Josh will have to work out DR on this - for a while we do want to be encouraging credit donations so that we can buy more vaults, etc. I have notes suggesting DR kicks in after 5K credits...thoughts?

I can spread the DR out on this 5K= 95%dr, 7.5K =90%...yadda yadda Shouldn't be too hard to work something smooth out. Joshua Hawkins 08:07, 24 May 2012 (EDT)

Guild Bank Item Contributions

  • Orange Gear - 5 points per item
  • Stack of Blue Materials - 5 points for every 10 units (1 stack of 10 = 5 pts, 1 stack of 20 = 10 pts)
  • Stack of Purple Materials - 10 points for every 5 units.
  • Mission Discoveries (any skill): Level 0-100 = 1 point, 101-200 = 2 points, 201-300 = 3 points, 301-400 = 4 points.
  • Schematics - 2 points for regular schematics, 4 points for "orange" schematics.
  • Blue Gear - 2 points/item
  • Purple Gear - 4 points/item
  • Green Gear - do not donate green gear. Sell it, and give us the credits. We like credits.

This stuff we can verify by screenshot of the ledger page. That's not a problem. Even if someone wants to be sneaky and have an alt remove it and then mail it to them and resubmit it, we can catch it and deny future reports. Joshua Hawkins 08:07, 24 May 2012 (EDT)

This reporter is on hold for a bit until I can figure out how I want to code it up. Joshua Hawkins 07:33, 10 June 2012 (EDT)


Treated the same way as we currently treat RS matches. Must be done with 1 other RSer.

2 points per RSer per flashpoint, doubles for a hardmode flashpoint, triples for a nightmare mode flashpoint. So if Sconn and Josh run Esseles together, normal mode, that's worth 4 points for both of us. If Daryus runs it with us, we all get 6 points, if 4 of us run it together, that's worth 8 points. If we all run it HM, that would be 16, NM 32. Thoughts?

This could work. All RSers would need to submit screenshots and we would just need a screen shot of the final boss, during conversation would be awesome, during combat would be cool, after combat and taking a pic of the epic enemy codex, not so cool. Joshua Hawkins 08:07, 24 May 2012 (EDT)


Could also treat Heroics the same way as flashpoints outlined above, just obviously no HM/NM...only problem is if we take level 50 chars and run level 10 heroics...any thoughts there too? Maybe just 1 pt/RSer for Heroics?

Heroics I would treat like above, just 1 point per RSer, so 2 RSers we get 2 points, 3 for 3, 4 for 4.. Heroics aren't as tough as the flashpoints. Again, taking screenshots of whatever the final objective is. Joshua Hawkins 08:07, 24 May 2012 (EDT)

Questing Together

These points are handled the same way we handle duration points (1 pt/hour?) - must be questing with at least one other RSer, I suppose we could stack it similar to flashpoints and add another pt/hour for each RSer beyond 2, so 3 people questing together would be 2 points/hour, 4 together would be 3pts/hour. Just an idea, not really committed to it. This needs to be submitted with screenshot proof - the same player must take a screenshot at the beginning and end (to avoid time zone discrepancies - if I were questing with Josh or Adam being on EST with me on CST, I could take the "start" screenshot, and they could take the "end" screenshot, and because EST is +1 hour from CST, we would gain an extra hour).

This could work. I'll have to ponder how I want the reporter to look, but it's doable. :) Joshua Hawkins 08:07, 24 May 2012 (EDT)

UPDATE: Currently this is setup like simming 1point every 30 minutes. I think this will be fine for now, but after a couple reports we can adjust as needed. Joshua Hawkins 12:57, 29 May 2012 (EDT)

Guild Assistance

1. Helping a guildie with a story mission or quest - 5 points for the helper, 1 point for the person being helped. This would be a situation where a lower level character is trying to beat a story quest or something, can't do it, asks for help from a higher level player in the guild, but it's not a heroic, flashpoint or questing together situation.

Awesome idea, How do we score it? screenshot mid battle? Most people will forget or be too busy concentrating on killing to take screenies.. Joshua Hawkins 08:07, 24 May 2012 (EDT)

Hrmm...I mean, I'd hope to use the honor system on this, and have both the helper and the helpee report it to the guildmaster/PC? Since most content is soloable, this situation shouldn't be coming up like...often, right? --Sconn 15:59, 24 May 2012 (EDT)

2. Crafting Requests - didn't flesh this out much, but the idea is that someone posts a request for a specific item, or a type of item on the forums, and someone else crafts it. The person who crafts it receives X# of points depending on the difficulty of the item? We talked about a range of 2-10 points per item depending on the level of the item, how expensive the mats are, etc...I'm not sure how to set that up though? Here's what I'm thinking initially, but really open to improvements on this:

1 pt per level requirement of the item in the tens column, lvl 1-10, 1 pt, lvl 11-20 2 pts, 21-30 3 pts, 31-40, 4 pts, 40+ 5 pts

AND then, an additional point bonus for the level of the item beyond green - 1 pt for blue, 3 pts for purple, 5 points for orange and/or augmented...? This would mean that a level 40+ orange item would be worth 10 points.

...only concern is making it fair for professions without "oranges" things like armorings, mods, enhancements, barrels...? Need help here.

This should be fleshed out, but lets hold off on implementing this for right now. This is a bit more complicated to score/report. Joshua Hawkins 08:07, 24 May 2012 (EDT)

I'm ok putting this part (crafting requests) on the backburner for now and just have people work it out between themselves, like...bartering or credits or something until we get it figured out. --Sconn 14:21, 25 May 2012 (EDT)

TOR Medals

Adam, not sure what else you can cook up here, but here's what Josh and I discussed initially.

Medal for Level 50 - can/should be awarded multiple times, I think? Crafting/profession medals - one medal for each 100 points, so like...Cybertech 100 = bronze cybertech, 200 = silver cybertech, 300 = gold cybertech 400 = platinum cybertech...should each profession have its own medal then?

Maybe we can also offer medals for various in-game type things, like most flashpoints played with another RSer in a scoring period, most guild contributions in a scoring period, most items crafted for others in a scoring period, etc?

The forum also has a list of medals/ribbons thoughts as well. Joshua Hawkins 08:07, 24 May 2012 (EDT)

To address Adam's concerns re: medal categories - I believe that if we keep it small initially, both the Level 50 medals and the crafting/profession medals could fall under the "Accomplishment" section of medals? --Sconn 16:00, 24 May 2012 (EDT)

We'll just setup the TOR Fleet for medals that way we don't have to bog down the main RS stuff.. it'll be easier than creating a new catagory believe it or not. Joshua Hawkins 06:05, 25 May 2012 (EDT)
