The first Era (season) of our little clan competition has now officially started. It is currently planned to run until sometime in April next year.

I've put together a bit of a balancing system, which will be trialed in this first Era. Essentially, all new clan points are balanced (to an extent) based on the number of active members in each clan in the previous two weeks. Every two weeks, the number of active members is recalculated, and the points for the next two weeks are balanced based on these values (ie. previously gained points aren't changed).

I'm sure that the current formula isn't perfect, so I'll most likely update when I have more real data to work with.

As a side effect of the balancing, it is now possible to gain fractions of points. To make things simpler, all clan totals are floored (rounded down) in the listing on the forum sidebar, but you can view the actual total by clicking on the clan.


A list of the things that we currently award points for is available on the CotR index page, here:

We are still working on this - point values may change, and we will probably end up adding more to it. If you have any suggestions, let us know.

Congratulations to Venus Clan on winning their first Clan Points for a Lighthouse Cup!

Clan Points won by the Venus Clan as a group, such as for Lighthouse Cup wins (or co-wins, as happened last week) will be listed under Test's name, much the same way as Mars Clan LC wins have been attributed to the 'member' Mars.

I didn't say you hadn't won a Lighthouse Cup before. ;P

Clan Points for Lighthouse Cups have only been awarded since Era 1 began in December, and only Draconis had won since then.

Congrats to the Samudran Kingdom on their Lighthouse Cup win this past week, which snapped the Draconian winning streak of 28 in a row!

Clan Points earned by the Samudran Kingdom as a group will be awarded to Mellow.

Why Mellow? I'm obviously the crown jewel of Samudran which is why I should be earning those points

Basically, because they're an inactive member whose name was most easily related to the element/clan earning the points. Using an inactive member means the Clan Points listed for active members are more reflective of what they have achieved as individuals than they would be otherwise.

Dave, I just noticed that in Mercury's Clan Point breakdown, four allocations of three points each that were made on Sept 26th are not registering into their tally for some reason. Similar awards were handed out to Draconians and Aeolians at the same time, and those went through fine.

Also, while manually tallying up Samudran's points to verify that those entries hadn't been counted (they haven't), I noticed that their tally comes out to 99.37, rather than the 100.29 listed at the top of that page. I'm not totally sure if they're related, but judging from the balancing multipliers applied to Samudran Clan Points around that time, maybe those 0.92 points are the balancing factor that should have been added on to their 12 missing base points? I dunno. The other clans' points add up fine.

Era 3 has ended - congratulations to Samudran!

Era 4 is considered to have begun at the start of the Anniversary event (July 28th). Any Clan Points earned since then will be awarded once Dave returns from vacation, wipes the slates clean and rebalances the CP-adjustment formula.
