Titan cp badge reward rebalancing

Post by Klapaucius »

Background: Killing boss monsters often rewards participants 5/10/15 cp for participation/killing blow/highest damage. This is NW legacy balance that IMO could stand another pass, to make the distribution of rewards fairer/more fun.


Suggestion part 1: change it to 10/10/10

Rationale:
- 5 cp can't buy much of anything anymore (though I note the possibility of additional ~5 cp rewards
- The biggest actual raid contributors (THE LOGISTICS TEAM LETS BE HONEST) get by far the worst reward, with basically zero chance of the better rewards


Suggestion part 2: Make the killing blow/highest damage cp reward something that factions/groups can actually arrange for particular participants to have. The exact implementation could take a few forms, but I propose a token that is given to the player attaining the achievement after the first time, that can be given away if desired.

Rationale:
- Currently, motivation to repeat attacks on the boss monsters is pretty low because the more times you defeat them the less likely it will be that the badges go to someone useful. This is a lost opportunity to have repeatable content
- Again, the biggest contributors are locked out of the biggest rewards
- DKP

I like this.

If it can't be changed to 10/10/10 then doubling it to be 10/20/30 would be better than leaving as-is.

Can't buy anything with 5 CP.

One thing that's worth mentioning is that titan CP rewards are per-titan, not a global attribute, so we have quite a lot of leeway to set individual boss fights to individualized levels. Right now there's just one, but more boss fights are a desired dev goal in the future.

Titan is staying as-is at least for now, but there's a second pending boss fight for which the numbers in this suggestion (10/10/10) will be used instead of 5/10/15, so I'm going to call this Implemented.
