I’ve been meaning to make this post for a while, but was just too lazy/busy playing my favorite game (Hero Hunters, of course!)
In the past we’ve had some very ambiguous “rules” that required experimentation to confirm. For example:
Win a level 55+ Co-op Raid using ABC: 50 points
Win a level 55+ Co-op Raid using DEF: 30 points
The way this is worded to me sounds like it’s one OR the other, either you get 50 points for ABC, or 30 points for DEF. Not 80 points if you use both. Many people in my alliance thought the same so we ended losing a lot of potential points in the beginning until someone finally mentioned that you got more points for using both. I can see how it could be interpreted either way, but at best, this is NOT CLEAR at all.
But, since we eventually got the hang of your “Rules” I ended up just letting it go. Until now. Sorry to say, you guys set the ambiguity bar to a whole new level with the upcoming Solo Raids Blitz rules:
Win the Into The Dojo Level 35+ Co-op Raid using Odachi 15 points
Win the Into The Dojo Level 45+ Co-op Raid using Odachi 25 points
Win the Into The Dojo Level 55+ Co-op Raid using Odachi 50 points
Win the Into The Dojo Level 35+ Co-op Raid with at least one Bio-chem Hero on your team 5 points
Win the Into The Dojo Level 45+ Co-op Raid with at least one Bio-chem Hero on your team 15 points
Win the Into The Dojo Level 55+ Co-op Raid with at least one Bio-chem Hero on your team 30 points
What the HECK???
Does this mean we get 80 points if we use Odachi to win level 55 Dojo with no other biochem heroes?? No one in my alliance has any freaking clue. What if we use additional biochem heroes, say Odachi and Heimlock? Do we get 110 points? 80 points? Just 50 points?
Logic and English grammar dictate that we would only get a maximum additional bonus of 30 points for any bio-chem heroes on our team (in a 55 Dojo win) NOT counting Odachi.
Why wouldn’t Odachi count? Because it states plainly that we get 50 points for using Odachi and winning 55 Dojo. If Odachi counted, then we would get 80 points for him, which doesn’t match with your rules. Also, if we got 30 additional points for each bio-chem hero on our team (in 55 Dojo) then it should be written “FOR EACH Bio-chem hero on your team.” NOT “with at least one Bio-chem hero on your team.”
Part of me thinks that maybe you guys intended for 50 points to be the maximum score and people who don’t have Odachi can get a maximum 30 points if they use any other bio-chem hero, given how egregious the logic and grammar problems would be if reality is otherwise.
Then again, based on how your past rules worked, which were additive, I don’t know. You know what would clear all this up and prevent misunderstandings from occurring in the future no matter how poorly and ambiguously your rules are written? Including examples in your rules. For example (see what I did there?):
Win the Into The Dojo Level 55+ Co-op Raid with Odachi and one other bio-chem hero in your group: 110 points
Win the Into The Dojo Level 55+ Co-op Raid with Odachi and two other bio-chem heroes in your group: 140 points
Win the Into The Dojo Level 55+ Co-op Raid with 3 bio-chem heroes but no Odachi: 90 points
Whatever you end up doing, for the love of god please make an effort to make your rules more clear.
I love everything else you are doing with the game but the rules bring out the rage gamer in me.
