Events / Monthly Spar Qualification
« on: April 26, 2012, 04:02:47 AM »
Similarly to the past, qualification spars are commenced between the first 2 players to reach a certain inside location. Due to the absence of basic alternative spar levels, as well as a larger map necessary to disperse them, a limit warp is instead placed at an automatic random location, which warps the first 2 players that reach it to a GC Arena. The locations consist of buildings all over the map, none of which are restricted by quest progress. A message containing the location is sent to the Chat Box whenever a qualification limit warp is created or closed.
The winner is warped to the waiting room, while the loser is warped back to the GC Studios.

The Monthly Spar arenas themself are now located within SuperNicks.

Events / GC Prize Prices
« on: April 04, 2012, 08:38:12 PM »
Most prices are according to a numbered category.

  • 100 Tickets
  • 150 Tickets
  • 200 Tickets
  • 250 Tickets

It is important to note that the rate of ticket awarding is roughly 5 times higher than previously, all participants receive at least 1 ticket, and we hope to integrate the currency into the global shop, therefore it is important to keep prices on the conservative side.


Upgrades

The multiple upgrade items will start off at the price of 100 tickets, but then increase by 50 tickets for every time you purchase one.

  • Additional Beer Mug = 100 + (amount purchased * 50)
  • Additional Outfit Save Slot = 100 + (amount purchased * 50)
  • One Time Bomb Bag Upgrade = Category 4
  • One Time Quiver Upgrade = Category 4

Category 1 Ganis

These are simple ganis where the player has to stand still.

  • Juggle
  • Angel
  • Jellybeans
  • Sword Dance
  • Freak
  • 3rd Degree Burn
  • Self Destruct
  • Skull Storm
  • Skull Summon
  • Shack on Demand

Category 2 Ganis

These ganis are either offering some form of use, or can also be used while walking around.

  • Jump Rope
  • Dice
  • Fake Dagger
  • Flip Coin
  • Stone Form
  • Totem Pole

Category 3

  • Aura
  • Fireworks

Category 4

  • Portable Chair
  • Rock Paper Scissors
  • Sword Thrower
  • Morpher

Updates and Announcements / GC Studios Spar Tournament
« on: March 29, 2012, 07:57:06 PM »
Another Studio level has been added for publicly hostable spar tournaments.
GC spars themself work pretty much the same as the normal spar within Supernick's minus the queue, normal exit & entry.

The main feature would be the addition of a tournament generator, which can support tournaments of any size for any event, can be viewed by players and modified by the host:

Bugs and Suggestions / Libraries/Bookshelves
« on: March 27, 2012, 10:08:51 AM »
For those familiar with the libraries within Master Li's and the Castle, there are several shelves without an entry, or with a somewhat short entry, there will likely be other similar locations in future.

Usually the material I think of is just for the sake of covering gaps, rather than the sake of offering detailed information, creative fantasies or interpretations of content.
If anybody has any such material they'd like to contribute, be it something of relevance to existing content, past content, in-game characters, humour, poetry, past happenings between players etc, then feel free to post it here and we'll add any good contributions where possible.

As of writing 22 new Trading Cards have been scattered around the world ready to be collected.
   
For most of these cards a map icon can be purchased for 20 Gelat at the Trading Card House, provided a card is obtainable. Other cards are hidden within dungeons, while some cards require statistics such as Spar Wins.
   
It should be noted that cards obtained from secret locations are not tradable.

A randomise outfit button has been added to the Outfit Editor. The default command for opening this is /t, or you can press the bottom right options cog button and then click "Change Look".

Awarding

The most important difference between past and new GC Tickets, is that rather than simply awarding a single number to the event winner(s), a smaller number of tickets will be awarded to players who merely participate, with extra GCT available to those who perform well within an event.

The idea behind this different approach is that it will encourage competitiveness, act as an incentive for players to participate even if it isn't their preferred event, and discourage the act of leaving when losing.

Check here to see how this works specifically for different events:
http://classicgraal.net/forums/index.php?topic=61.0

Penalties

As mentioned above, we want to discourage players from leaving a team event on the basis they are about to lose. Only those on the losing team who remain until the end of the event shall receive their complimentary ticket. In addition to this, any player who leaves with a seemingly inevitable loss impending can be made to automatically or manually receive a GCT deduction. Repeat offenders can possibly be made to receive a temporary events ban.

Degradation

*Edit*
This idea will be scrapped in the event of our plan for micro-transactions being approved.

As a further measure to encourage participation, plus a weapon against the act of currency hoarding, for every week a player goes without obtaining a ticket their total shall be deducted by 5% (rounded).

As an example, lets say a player has earned 100 GCT. The player then stops participating in events (or doesn't log on Classic) for a total of 3 full weeks.
The first week would reduce their total to 95 tickets.
The second week would reduce their total to 90 tickets
The third week would reduce their total to 85 tickets.
After 10 weeks, their total would be 63 tickets.
After 15 weeks, their total would go from 51 to 48 tickets, half of their original total.
