Re: C3G Promotions Dept. - Join the Danger Room!

To me, the key is you want it high enough that it doesn't happen all the time, but it has to be low enough so you feel it's obtainable again within a reasonable enough amount of time. Otherwise, if it takes too long, people will just say "eh, it'll get here when it gets here" rather than "if I push through these quick enough, I can design _____ next month!".

I honestly wouldn't be opposed to ditching the Public Design vote, and just going with a pure system reliant on people cashing in their own points once they playtest enough. People would be fighting for playtest spots, ideally. If you made the cash in amount obtainable enough at least. Say it was 30 points, with no other means of being able to design...

Re: C3G Promotions Dept. - Join the Danger Room!

The public vote is a fun thing that gets public energy going, though. I'd hate to lose it.

C3G can be played with official Heroscape, but it's not recommended.

Re: C3G Promotions Dept. - Join the Danger Room!

Yeah, I also like the public vote.

I think having more solid mid-level rewards would be a good incentive. Right now the only thing I'd really be looking at below the design thread is a variant card. That said, I'm a little stumped on what to throw in there. My only immediate idea is that you should try offering a separate glyph/DO thread option, cheaper than the 50 point one. It might help more of those ideas come out of the public.

Re: C3G Promotions Dept. - Join the Danger Room!

Yeah, I'd love more stuff to spend points on too, but none of the things we've thought of or tried have really gotten folks excited yet.

C3G can be played with official Heroscape, but it's not recommended.

Re: C3G Promotions Dept. - Join the Danger Room!

Destructible objects only cost 10 points already. I don't believe we voted specifically for glyphs but I doubt there'd be any issue making them 10 points too.

I was just tossing out things that could work, not suggesting you actually do so. The Public vote is fun, and has been going for a long time, getting rid of it isn't really a realistic option.

It was more of an observation. Part of the issue with the current system is people can playtest 8 times, and just sit on those points for months to years, never getting to use them, if their design isn't popular enough to win. Whereas, if designing a enough means you're guaranteed to be able to make your design, that's a more solid motivation. It's the difference of one method giving you a chance to design, and the other guaranteeing you that "if I playtest a bit more, I can make my design". It's a tangible goal, rather than a pure chance left up to a vote against 5-7 other people looking to do the same thing.

As for the DO design. The problem with that and glyphs is not the cost to design, its that usually people would much rather see a figure be designed(myself included), thus winning a vote is going to prove very difficult. Perhaps an alternative/separate method to designing them that isn;t competing against figures?

Perhaps a smaller point goal should be an unreleased card? I'm sure there's plenty of people out there that'd want something like that. Make it 15 points as a "maybe you don't want to design something yourself, but you want something immediate that you can play with".

Re: C3G Promotions Dept. - Join the Danger Room!

I enjoy the public design votes as well, the aspect I really like of the "Danger Room" is that now if you "sign up" for a play test you have access to the thread for that character which will allow you to see the decisions that were made into making that design and give a little more insight into what everyone was thinking and the way they wanted to go with it.

I'm fairly sure someone's suggested the idea of a separate Glyph/DO voting thread so that those ideas actually get done.

I think it'd be better if folks can just "skip the line" with those for the same cost it takes to get them through the voting process. DOs and Glyphs designable right away (hello Jungle Trees) for only 10 points (maybe 15 if we're letting folks skip the line?) has a nice ring to it.

Yeah, I'd like to get my Jungle Trees done but other figures get ahead of it everytime.

@C3G_Heroes, is that the intent? My reading of it was that you were just going to post the write-up in a thread not move the whole thread. Of course with the exception of those that are designed in the Danger Room.

~Just want to ensure there is full transparency here.
