So... on IRC, we were discussing what should be the requirements to host a major battle if you're not puke7.
This post is just a summary (aka chatlog lmao) of all ideas so far and this thread will be used to collect even more ideas so that puke have something to work with and can make major battle hosting easier!
If you have ideas and suggestions, post them here! :D/
---DISCUSSION ON PRICE---
<vombot> [puke7] 2500 boons is a lot :u
<vombot> [puke7] but also could have multipliers for number of weeks and number of formats
<kleeder> oh only 2500? tbh my first thought was 5000 xD
<kleeder> but yeah, multipliers for formats and weeks sounds good
<kleeder> 2500 as a basic 2 weeks-1 format battle and maybe +500 per week and +750 per format? is that too much
<kleeder> would be 2500+500+500+750 in my case
<kleeder> possible extensions on entry (or voting) periods would need a payment of 500b as well, maybe
<vombot> [puke7] thats almost 5k
<pumpuli> I'd say 750b per format and some base amount (like 2500b) for the whole thing would be nice
<pumpuli> I don't think majors should cost differently based on how long it takes (and it should have a default for like a month? or two weeks?)
<pumpuli> extending should obviously cost boons
<vombot> [puke7] sometimes we have 48 hour majors tho too
<vombot> [puke7] different numbers of formats should cost something? and we could do like the deposit around number of entries too
<pumpuli> oh yeah the format-cost should be a deposit for sure similar to ohbs
<kleeder> if a format has less than 7 entries for example
---DISCUSSION ON HOST REQUIREMENT---
<kleeder> oh and who should be able to host in the first place? do you wanna do it manually for everyone? i thought about a "Host" badge or something that you can give to a botbr temporarily, so that the acc is able to access the battlecreate-page or something
<pumpuli> maybe a level-related thing with a one-major-a-year limit per account?
<kleeder> that was my first idea, but idk if thats a good thing, because you might end up with too many battles at the same time if 4 people decide to host one
<kleeder> we have a lot of (active) level 27 botbrs
<tfx> yeah I was just going to say that
<pumpuli> or like, at lvl n you can host 1 per year, n+1 you could host 2, and so on
<kleeder> but what should be level n
<tfx> what if major hosting is based off of your contribution to other majors?
<tfx> so you can't spam majors, but if you enter a lot you can beghast more
<tfx> so basically, if you're kleeder, you can spam majors
<pumpuli> maybe also a cap for concurrent battles?
<kleeder> a limit to ongoing battles sounds good (unless your account is puke7) maybe 3 or 4
<vombot> [puke7] maybe you have to host 100 successful OHBs to host a major 😄
<vombot> [puke7] i don't know if that's the number, but its close
<vombot> [Dippy] 100 3+ entry ohbs as a requirement might be a good idea
<tfx> puke7 hosted majors should be super-majors
<tfx> Major Majors
