hi! bumping this because ngl, i am a HUGE fan of this idea! this would give more of a communal aspect to botb beyond the xhbs and such.
...however, there needs to be some changes.
namely in response to the fact that, well, 2hbs and 4hbs are a thing. the initial plan's costs are scarily close to the 2650 a no penalty 4hb would suffice, so if i may, a revised pricing schema.
[(1000 * x) + (500 * z)] * y
x = amount of days the major is hosted
y = amount of formats within the major
z = amount of days voting is available
time periods would have to be in terms of weeks (excluding battles that are 2 days long), so let's say the time_val integer is 0 - 7, where:
0 is 2 days
1 - 7 is x amount of weeks
time_val also apples to voting with a seperate tag i'm assuming
so let's say someone hosts a battle where entry time_val = 2 and voting time_val = 1
1000 * 14 days = 14000
500 * 7 day = 3500
14000 + 3500 = 17500
and let's say there's uhh 2 formats
so 35000 boons to host that major
ofc, this is a heaping heaper of a hefty heftin price to pay, but it creates a juxtapose between xhbs and majors. with this, the following image is crafted: xhbs are cheaper, more affordable battles that can be done on a whim or in a series of such, meanwhile majors are more luxury battles that take huge investments to make feasible. it's like having a choice between a ford and a ferrari. also it prevents spam majors lol
oh and uh boon bonuses uhm
i guess 300 * x, where x = entries in the major?
add that with boon deposit return on:
17 entries with entry time_val = 0
29 entries with entry time_val = 1 - 2
45 entries with entry time_val = 3 - 7
iunno, something to make sure that the host isn't completely bare-ass broke by the end of it if it turns out to be boonloss. i'm open to any suggestions though, these are just my initial financial calculations (as well as my broken knowledge of js) and will be prone to change/evolution.
aight, requirements. i feel like i got some ideas for such:
- for botbrs that aren't ascended, have at least 56 boonsave battles hosted in the format you wish host a major for, as well as a silver badge.
- for botbrs that are ascended, the requirement is halved to 28 boonsave battles in format/bronze badge.
- for admins, the requirement is reduced to just having the badge in that format
not really fleshed out atm but i feel like it's appropriate, given how big majors are. it would make sense to have a system wherein it requires you to count how many battles you've hosted, tracking how experienced you are as a hostist and whether or not you deserve the right to host.
as for limits, i'm more open to having 3 or 4 active entry periods at a time. 2 of which are for puke's majors (spring/summer/winter, monthly chip, etc.) with the rest going to the botbrs hosting their majors. voting periods will probably be the same tbh. this is mainly to clear clutter up and such, as it'd be a clusterfuck having 7 majors going on. it'd be a cool clusterfuck, sure, but still a clusterfuck.
i think that's about it tbh
