Bonus Loyalty Points for sticking with the losing team

Sharks have won every day so far.

So we should get bonus loyalty points for picking Eagles.

 

I suggest that we get bonus loyalty points for persisting with a team, scaling with the points bonus at the end of the previous day. For example, if Eagles ended the previous day  with +50% points bonus on the meter, then to pick Eagles again should net us more than just the (IIRC) +3 loyalty you get every day for picking the same team. The bonus should scale with the number of days losing streak the team has been on, and how badly it keeps losing.

 

EDIT: Also, the team that lost the previous 2 days should get 1 loyalty point per crate earned. This will provide incentive to not all lemming to the winning side.

EDIT 2: This does not increase the amount the eagles (losers) can purchase in the arsenal compared to sharks (winners). It just lets them buy it sooner, then jump ship for the 1 bonus crate per day the sharks get. Reward farmers will notice this and quickly farm for their second permanent camo... by working for the other team for a while. This prevents absurd snowball as is happening right now.

Mark my words. Without a major change to how loyalty points accumulate, Eagles will not win a single daily bonus container race through this whole event.

Do people simply not realize they aren't going to re-write the code mid event?:Smile_amazed:

What are forums for? If everyone realised everything around there was no need of forums. Nothing to lose to create a thread and rant :D

It would be troll like fun if WG had a surprised announcement after the event ended giving something to those that persisted. :Smile_teethhappy: Probably not going to happen though. I'm Eagle and I'm not even going to switch when I max out on loyalty, one team all the way.

problem is that lot of people join shark more than Eagles do, making that cause getting lot of point much faster and more than smaller number people who join eagles.  (I guess most like blue color, not red, since red meaning a bad guy or something, no, I don't see it, but red seem as targets)

I been joined eagles ever since started and not even join shark even shark is winning, but once I max eagles loyal, then I join Shark to get stuffs if I had time to do that. Leader board is easier to get in top in eagles than shark. 

If you are bad player, not good at aim like me, then if you had short time of playing game, better off shark, if you had lot of time, then eagles to get most of out.

I'm probably going to jump ship too once I get the eagle camo for Worcester as you can only get enough team points for one permanent camo per team (i.e. not enough for that AND the DM perma-camo).

 

However, I find Eagles superior simply as aquatic sapient races can't get metal-working tech nearly as fast as terrestrial ones, and therefore are much less likely to become spacefaring races.

I am sure this has been explained extensively, but why not make choices stick? Clash of the elements was fun.

Two things;

(1) Wee-Gee is not going to re-code this event while it's ongoing.

(2) Why should the losers get special goodies that the winners don't get?

I agree that the losing team shouldn't get any goodies just for losing and I am playing on the Eagles team until I get my tokens. The whole thing is a mess IMHO, once one team won, players migrated over to the Sharks and now we have the snowball effect. Switching sides was a stupid idea but since they went with stupid, what they need to do is incentivize players on the Shark team to go Eagles. Understand I don't care who wins or loses, am only farming rewards but if you are gonna make a competition between teams, it is probably a dumb move to let the losers migrate to the winning team in the middle of a game....

Winning team gets more containers, 1 per day.

Losing team gets to buy their one free permanent camo sooner (note: not "buy multiple perkmanent camos", it's "buy their one free perma-camo SOONER") and can jump ship after that.
