Kevin the Chicken God

A rather 'unusual' price suggesting game

Recommended Posts

Kevin the Chicken God

This is based off of a previous thread which I could not find, but I thought the idea was cool and wanted to revive it

 

Every week starting on Wednesday, three goals for unusual price suggestions will be posted on this thread. They'll be something like "price 50 blizzardy hats (0/50)", and all you suggestors out there will have a week to try and get those done. For each goal that gets accomplished, I will host a lotto with a prize in it for everyone who contributed, and donations will enlarge the pot. I will update the counter on Saturday and Tuesday
 

 

So for an example:

one of the goals is "update the price of 50 blizzardy hats 0/50"

Saturday: 21/50 done

Tuesday: 43/50 done

Wednesday: 50/50 done!

by the end of the week lets say randy has done 11, so his name will be entered in the 50 slot pot 11 times, whereas mindacos has done 2, so his name is entered twice. The more suggestions done towards this goal, the greater the reward.

 

I am not a fountain of wealth, so the rewards will usually be like 10 ref to a key, and will likely be items. It was just a little incentive I figured I would add, and donations will be put into the pot. Sometimes I'll put a crazy goal with a 10 key pot if I'm feeling generous. If the goal is not reached, I will just put the items from that pot into next week's pot

 

Additionally, I will be occasionally hosting Unusual Pricing Events, similar to:

http://forums.backpack.tf/index.php?/topic/14476-unusual-pricing-event-20/

http://forums.backpack.tf/index.php?/topic/16960-unusual-pricing-event-30/

 

those won't have a prize associated, but they're fun anyways

 

I will post the updates in the comments rather than editing the post itself, if you have any questions feel free to ask

 

Also, if I say "update" in one of the questions, the hat's price must be at least 2 months old

This Week (9/23-9/30):

 

 

Low Goal:
Price 25 Halloween 2014 Unusuals (0/25)
 
Low Prize:
Strange Part: Posthumous Kills
 
Medium Goal:
Price 35 Brown Unusuals (0/35) (judged by hat color, not by effect. Majority of hat has to be brown, i.e. FFF and beak don't count, but tyrolean does)
 
Medium Prize:
Salmon Painted Birdman of Australiacatraz
 
High Goal:
Update the price of 70 Robo hats (0/70)
 
High Prize:
11 ref pure
 
Disclaimer:
I left the prizes fairly low this week because I'm not sure how quickly you guys can accomplish these goals, it might be more difficult to price the new effects than it is to update robo hats, I can't be sure until I do this a few times.

 

EDIT: 

a few clarifications:

robo hats mean the hats themselves, not the effect

suggestions will be added to the list by the date they are accepted, not by the date they are created, so every suggestion accepted from the 23rd to the 30th will be counted, not every suggestion made

so I'm probably going to update the progress every day this week just to spread awareness and to track how easy certain challenges are

so for Wednesday the 23rd, the current progress is:

 

Low Goal:
Price 25 Halloween 2014 Unusuals (0/25)

Medium Goal:
Price 35 Brown Unusuals (6/35) (judged by hat color, not by effect. Majority of hat has to be brown, i.e. FFF and beak don't count, but tyrolean does)
 
High Goal:
Update the price of 70 Robo hats (1/70)
 

there are a lot more brown hats than I thought lol

 

this tells me a lot about how difficult some challenges are, the easy challenge isn't that easy while the medium challenge will be accomplished in around half of the given time. This will lead to precedents being set in the future.

the former easy goal has been moved to the hard goal, and the other two have shifted down accordingly, sorry if this causes any confusion

Thursday the 24th, the current progress is:

 

Low Goal:
Price 35 Brown Unusuals (10/35) (judged by hat color, not by effect. Majority of hat has to be brown, i.e. FFF and beak don't count, but tyrolean does)

Medium Goal:
Update the price of 70 Robo hats (12/70)

Can 1 price suggestion count towards more than 1 goal? Like a brown robo hat with a 2014 halloween effect? c:

yeah, if you can do a brown robo hat with a 2014 effect you've saved yourself a lot of time

oh, and something I forgot to mention last night was that I would like to have some co-conspirators to help me run this thing. This could vary from just helping me with the goals, occasionally finding and posting updates if I cant, or just donating stuff and helping with the pot

 

if anyone would be interested you can forum PM me or steam message me
