Hey frens, there has been a lot of discussion on Discord about the apparent advantage Haunt 2 Gotchis have at the top of the BRS leaderboards. Currently 8-9 out of the top 10 Gotchis (depending on ties) were summoned out of an H2 portal.
After a lot of heated debate someone came up with the idea of introducing a BRS boost based on the age of the Aavegotchi. Even without the H2 “bug”, I and many others believe this to be a great way to preserve the rarity (and value) of Gotchis over a longer timeframe - not just for Haunt 1. Of course the devil’s in the detail, but @diddlypoo came up with a potential formula using Fibonacci numbers. I’ll quote what he had to say:
“So I think we’re at the point where we need to be discussing specific formulas for possible implementation. I think a maximum of 10 BRS should be possible via the aging mechanism to avoid it being too OP, although we should probably debate this number. Still thinking of ways this could be distributed, but in the spirit of using numbers occurring in nature, one idea was using # of blocks elapsed since birth following the first 10 Fibonacci numbers x 1 million, but replacing the first 0 with a 1 (to better fit the use case).
For example, the first 10 Fibonacci numbers (replacing the first 0) are 1, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, the sum of which is 89. Following this formula would mean +1 BRS after 1 million blocks, then another +1 BRS after 2 million blocks, another +1 BRS after 3 million blocks, another +1 BRS after 5 million blocks, …, up to a final sum of +10 BRS after 89 million blocks (approx 6.5 years using average block time of 2.3 seconds - the average since May 1st). Full chart below:”
Cume BRS | # blocks elapsed ----------------------- +1 | 1 million +2 | 2 million +3 | 3 million +4 | 5 million +5 | 8 million +6 | 13 million +7 | 21 million +8 | 34 million +9 | 55 million +10 | 89 million
“This implementation would provide a bigger boost earlier on, helping to account for the current BRS creep, but would also greatly flatten over time, allowing later haunts to catch up. Thoughts? Or has anyone thought of another approach?”
If this were to be implemented before Rarity Farming Season 2, we’d have to push this to a Signal Proposal fairly soon. That’s it, I don’t think much more has to be said, what are your thoughts frens?
- Introduce Aging BRS (diddly’s model)
- Introduce Aging BRS (different model)
- Don’t introduce Aging BRS
