Casting changes. Iteration 1

1stMar 26, 2010 by randomize
Due to
http://www.tengaged.com/blog/Haskova/399124/the-concept-castings-critique

Iteration 1:
Fast change description:

Apples are now equivalent to food :o, food is life! :) the more apples you eat the more food you have (in your stomach at least), one apple may give you 10% increase, activity also makes your food to increase.
Inactivity (measured by few params) will reduce your apples percentage. If it reaches 0 ... well ... you die.

Games may get shorter in number of days, i.e. because several inactive players, etc.

Thanks to all of YOU!  :D
(I'm very sorry not being able to answer all your mails)

will casting health be separate from survivor health?  for example, if you die in castings does your overall health rating go down like happens with survivor?

i thought the point of apples was to help people who lost badly in survivor so they could join survivor again.

also, how quickly will it take someone to die? if you join and then are never active, how long would you be expected to stay if you never got voted off but just died?

Rando, perdona que te escriba en español, pero en tengaged.es la gente espera una explicación. Y si puede ser, podrías explicar, por ejemplo, por qué en tengaged.com he quedado 8º cuando no hay 9º ni 10º, o por qué a veces no hay 4 nominados, sino 3, 2 o 1?

I don't mind that the inactives are taken out, but someone shouldn't die and get a better place than someone voted out.  In my game Lauttyy died and got 12th, but there is no 13th and 14th place!

Sorry Randomize, but I think that this change is not good. It's too bad for the new people, In my casting of tengaed.es Meanwhile you have changing the castings. In my casting I'm the only nominated! This is a very bad error. Your team maybe should make another changes.

Hey there Randomize.  Long time reader, 2nd time commenter.  lol

I am fully in support of the change to castings.  I have 2 issues with this:

-The current changes were not advertised on the main page (many WTFs all around)

-I believe an open beta should have been created so that people's accounts and records are not affected while you play around.  I'm sure many people would willingly join a beta.

Onward and upward!

Horrible decision for the castings.....

Inactives may leave at the beginning, but then you have people logging in and not saying anything. They get a little health just doing that. It's enough to keep them in.

If this site wants to represent reality tv, then it's failing. There's always people in the house that do more than others. Take Jessie from Big Brother 10. He slept around the house all day, didn't really do anything. However, he made it half way.

And please for the love of god, I don't want to play Deal or No Deal any more. More mini-games are needed soooo bad.
