5th Olympic games! Now with duos and a way to triple prizes!

Postby 9003 » Thu Jun 04, 2020 7:15 am

Hello one and all today we are gathered to start yet again the games for the greatest of the greatest card collectors. I am on moible but that doesn't mean I can't start the games just the same!

First the boring stuff like rules and sign up

Code: Select all
[b]Main Nation: [nation][/nation][/b]
[b]Main Nation2 [nation][/nation][/b]
[b]Puppet 1:[nation][/nation][/b]
[b]Puppet 2:[nation][/nation][/b]
[b]Puppet 3:[nation][/nation][/b]
[b]Puppet 4:[nation][/nation][/b]
[b]Puppet 5:[nation][/nation][/b]
[b]Puppet 6:[nation][/nation][/b]
[b]Puppet 7:[nation][/nation][/b]
[b]Puppet 8:[nation][/nation][/b]
[b]Puppet 9:[nation][/nation][/b]
[b]Puppet 10:[nation][/nation][/b]

[b]what is your favorite prime number?[/b]


The rules!
To keep the games fair we have a small handful of rules that we ask you to follow while you go and farm like mad!
***Slight change*** 1. NO GIFTS IN! Any gifts to your puppets will count against you in the final tally so no gifting your legendary collection over real quick. (You CAN gift any cards out just not in) you can gift between your puppets if you would like.
2. No bank transfers. You are not allowed to transfer bank from any nation other then the puppets to themselves. If you happen to intercept a transfer of someone else that is a fair play.
***slight change****3. No selling from any nation you own to your puppets (or your partners nation's) you have to go use the tools out there to find cards for your puppets to buy. (This includes any nation you control to your puppets. The goal of the game is for you to have to farm up the bank or use the open market)
***New rule***4. Good sportmanship you will be disqualified and penalized if you start gloating or being a sore loser this are all games that are supposed to be fun let's keep them fun for all!

Now you might ask your self what do you mean by main Nation2 well I have great news this months games will be in duos! So you and a partner will have a total of 10 nation's (only one of you have to post for the sign up just include both nation's puppets. Each player is allowed to bring 5 nation's to the game for a total of 10.

If you are playing solo that's cool too! Just bring 10 puppets and ignore main nation2,

For the prizes! The best part of course is the prizes! Rather then listing what prizes will be award I will pull a random legenday from my deck. If a duo wins a catagorey they will both win a legenday and if a solo wins they will win 1 legenday!
(The higher MV legendies will have an increased chance of being given away!)

Now for the categories of what to collect!
Ripple flags: The nation or duo that collects the most Rippled flags (AND puts them in a collection) will win this one. These are flags that have the ripple effect applied to them at nation creation. (if the winning team can manage to collect more then 500 I will double the prizes across the board, if the winning team gets more then 2,000 in this category I will TRIPLE the prizes across the board meaning that winning one category will win you 3 legs!

The other ones are the following raritys each will win a prize for who ever collects the most of that card

Common
Epic
Ultra-rare

Do note that it is far less then the previous games meaning this month will be an even higher level of competitiveness!

Good luck the games are on starting now!

They end at the last major of the month.

Question: If I sell a legendary to my main at MV or little higher (like I did in the Second Game), is it allowed? That isn't a bank transfer, isn't it.

While it may not be per say a traditional bank transfer I would count it as such still and thus no, it would not be allowed.

You are welcome to gift them out and sell to your main or sell to the highest bidder (otherthen yourself)

The rational behind it being that it creates a gray zone of what is acceptable or "close to MV" and I'd rather avoid that gray zone

Sorry, I'm easily confused.
Rule 3 says my muppets can't buy cards from my other nations, which is nice & clear.
Rule 2 is saying my other nations can't transfer bank to my muppets, which is slightly different to saying that my other nations can't buy from my muppets. That implies that there is a line somewhere, between a what would be seen as a purchase, and what would be seen as a transfer. That seems kind of a grey area to me. Could you clarify?
(I read the clarification on Legendaries).

From my understanding it just means that you cannot buy cards from an outside nation, and you cannot sell cards to an outside nation either.

(The outside nation would be any other puppet of nation of yours not in the Olympics)

I may or may not compete, but could we encourage someone else not playing to buy/sell a card to another nation that is obviously not a puppet of either to increase the value of some cards? :idea: :idea: :idea: :idea: :idea: :idea: :idea: :idea: :idea: :idea: I'm not trying to spam the smiles, just it seemed to be a clever idea

It works! I'm not sure what to put here, but I figured this out at least. If you want to send me any cards, best if you send it to one of my other nations like Mini Me For Cards 2, I just need more bank on this account if I want to upgrade the limit, but I just keep wanting to buy cards worth more, cards I like or cards for a secret collection that I am working on, I already had a lot of cards in the catagory, so mind as well make it an official collection that I could possibly already complete. I try not to break the rules, so if I do it by accident, please just tell me mods, although it would have to be through the TG only for mods, like Ransium had to due to class region. I didn't really check for spellings, so it may be a little unclear, sorry. :P More in my factbook on card+gifts

This looks interesting but I have 2 questions.

1. I don't have another nation and I don't know how card puppets works. So can I join this competition without any card puppets?

2. Do I get to keep the cards I find during this competition?

The topic for the 2nd olympics might explain a bit more:
viewtopic.php?f=42&t=481734

You need to submit a maximum of 10 nations that will form your team. I don't think it's a problem if you use less then 10 nations, but that's clearly a disadvantage for you.
The nations in your team must be virgin to the card game. no packs farmed before the start, no buys, no sells. The easiest way to accomplish that is to make new nations.

Since this olympiade, it's also possible to form a team with another player.

For all your card-questions, the card-discord can help you.

You can always make more!

https://www.nationstates.net/page=dispatch/id=1301085 here is a wonderful guide on how cards work! This is a great way to learn and practice.

You do keep every card you farm and if you win you get the prizes too!

Max: The code changelog says, "Added 'butthole' by mod request"
Lenyo: This dilemma needs an option that Luna would support in RL.

The tao that can be told is not the eternal Tao. The name that can be named is not the eternal Name. The unnamable is the eternally real. Naming is the origin of all particular things. Free from desire, you realize the mystery. Caught in desire, you see only the manifestations. Yet mystery and manifestations arise from the same source. This source is called darkness. Darkness within darkness. The gateway to all understanding

I have to use a new puppet with no cards on it, right?
Edit: also, the only cards my puppets should collect are commons, epics, URs, and ripple effect flags, right?
