Other ways of earning credits

Hey guys and girls,

Right now you can earn credits by:

 - Playing (time)

 - Buying

However, are there other ways they should or could be earned. I am not a fan of putting it on who plays the best, because that would promote to play with low level players :(

int credits_gained = minutes_played + Math.abs(ranks_gained / 2)
credits_gained = minutes_played + min(0 , ranks_gained/2 )
too lazy to explain, you get the idea.

credits_gained = minutes_played + max(0 , ranks_gained/2 )

question: are the credits you gain for achievements balanced yet? (like more credits for difficult achievements etc )
if not -> go do that
 

another idea: betting on yourself. this should be handled with care!
this could include the obligatory fee that you have to pay in a premium room. if you win -> you get your fee back and maybe some more. or less.

Weird suggestion...you take the absolute value of the amount of rank gained, so when you lose like 20 rank you gain more credits than someone who wins like 10 rank.

Lol now I look like an idiot. here's what I meant:
credits_gained = minutes_played + min(0 , ranks_gained/2 )

gandalfx : so if ranks_gained/2 = -15; min(0,-15) would yield -15, so you would have to play 15 minutes not to lose any credits?
Or do I get this min-function incorrect?
Anyway, you want to add ranks_gained/2 credits to the minutes played?

EDIT: is it possible to disable those stupid emoticons? like Dirol = kewl?

okay, here's the thing: I'm stupid when it comes to writing code without testing it. Apparently even for something like this. fuck me.

I shall now describe my intention in words so as not to produce any more bullshit, and then take another attempt at writing an equivalent piece of code.

1. credits per minutes as it has been so far
2. if the player has gained any (positive) ranks in this game, add half of that to his credits.

Now back to code:
credits_gained = minutes_played + max(0 , ranks_gained/2 )
so my second mistake was just a min instead of max.

ps: I've asked to get rid of those stupid emoticons before but it doesn't seem to be a priority.

Yeah, I thought you would mean something like this, and I absolutely agree, that this would be a good idea, since it's not even directly dependent from the actual place you got in the game, but rather from the skill you have shown in that one game.
I have to say, whenever you make a suggestion, gandalfx, I pretty much like it Smile

I did write this 2 days ago, but since it didn't get saved after the server crash I'll write it again Smile

Even though the new system gandalfx suggested sounds great, there is a little thing you could abuse to get a good amount of credits fast:
AFAIK resetting back doesn't affect one's credits. But by doing so, you will get the rank boost for the first..10 or 15 games, which would also affect the credits gained in one game. So in order to eleiminate this, you'd have to divide the ranks_gained term in the code of gandalfx by the factor the rank is gained in the first few games the counteract this.

How about bonus credits for certain actions:

10 bonus credits for the highest amount of points on a 4 player team game

15 bonus credits for the highest amount of points on a 6 player team game

20 bonus credits for the highest amount of points on a 8 player team game

5 bonus credits for the highest amount of points on a 8 player game WHILE on the losing team

50 bonus credits for not chickening out in 100 games

100 bonus credits for not chickening out in 250 games

1000 bonus credits for not chickening out in 1000 games | after this reset to 0 to start again

etc.

The amount of credits are off course examples and could be lower/higher.

I like it, it promotes gridning aswell as getting some sort of additional reward for it.

very good idea!


 

I think in  team points are not that important, more important is player who is standing last when round ends, more times you are standing alive in round end more coins you win. I just think you can have many points and fail many times team point is given for that team who player is last standing so.. It could be like 5 coins award for winning point for a team.

I don't think that's fair, as not only campers but also attackers in a team are very valuable.

WranDon - the forum slut

this atacker thing its just to hide noobines in many points if you are good atacker you are good player you can just camp yourself ,i think that would motivate to play better every player on team cause they are still alive in end they get coins not just if their teamate win round.

Being a good attacker doesn't mean being a good camper at all!

It could also do: open a new success = XXX money. :)
Or add a new achievement that would give 2x more money.

The suggestion of adding the amount of minutes played to credit is kinda useless, since I could make turtle game on full map and win a lot of credit. and someone who plays 1V1 scaled map or speed game wouldn't earn as much, just because his game ends faster due to the game configuration.

Isn't that the case already? And by the way: Yes, you could earn a lot more coins per match than the ones who play speed games but they could play several speed games during your turtle game, so what?

I have just opened a topic called COINS, in which I suggest a login bonus.

Every day of your login streak you get bonus coins, with a maximum on the 10th day. Of course you have to play a game after you logged in, else it would be easy earning.

For further discussion I reccomend to see the COINS topic.

I know for sure that won't come with this system,
because friends will thank their friends, and users will make other accounts to thank their own posts.

Conclusion:
Easy and unfair credits

How about getting coins for writing posts in the forum? Every 100 types = 1 coin! And if someone wants to cheat with writing for example: gggggggg x100, give them a penalty like -10 coins. And sorry for my english. :P

Dear CurveFever team.

You can make any ways to earn credits.. Not all players can buy them. And need to play some times, some weeks, to collect credits for any colorfully line..
About the ways to get easer credits:
- You can make WEEK contest, questions about the game or not.
- Make week MISSIONS. (Every day you can compleate missions and get credits of them, at last week day, if player compleated all mission, he get the BONUS)
- Best week player(Who was playing better than other players, too get the bonus)
- Player who played more than other players.(Get the bonus too)
P.s Sorry for my bad ENGLISH.

Thanks for understanding, i think it was good ideas. Good luck Smile
