[Contest] Blind Nuking Silo

Postby Ace Rimmer » Wed Jan 30, 2013 7:28 pm

So, I have been thinking it might be fun for people to show off their blind nuking skills in an exhibition style contest. "Prize?" you ask, sure! Not sure what yet, probaby $5-$10.

How it would work, or at least how I envision it at the moment...

  1. You sign up
  2. You play each player twice
    • You play once as "nuker" (you blind nuke)
      • You place six silos and one airbase and any radar you wish (no ships)
    • You play once as "nukee" (you dont attack)
      • You place six silos and all radar (no airbases or ships)
  3. Most effective player wins
  4. Server set up just for this exhibition ?


Thus the "nuker" is showing off his blind nuking skills, against all other signed up players, just one time. The nukee doesn't do anything at all, except maybe try and make it as hard as possible to get it right, without using planes or self-stricking silos. [Exibition]

Interested? Thoughts?

Obviously, the territories would be close, like EU (nukee) and RU (nuker)

Players:

Forever Young
Laika_rus
(MOR)
mrmot

Ace, how you/we can decide the winner?

A player can destroy all the 6 silos but with worst skill than another one that destroyed less silos.
For example, if mot destroyes only 4 silos but using only one fighter to blind them..well, in my opinion his skill his greater than the effective number of silos destroyed.

Hmm, hadn't thought it through that much. No time limit, but you only get one chance per nukee. I can't imagine it would take that long as there is no BOR necessary. :P



Nukers:

Forever Young
Laika_rus
mrmot

Strictly Nukees:

R3D
(MOR)

So, FY would blind, Laika, mrmot, R3D, and (MOR) while each of them try there own tricks (placement, self targeting, opening/closing) to avoid/make it harder to blind. So four chances for FY to show off his skills. Perhaps number of silos nuked + least number of nukes used + time taken to figure out where they are?

Probably need to come up with a scoring method; each nuke counts a certain amount of points, each silo nuked counts a certain amount of points and every five minutes of game time used counts a certain amount of points, or something like that.
