[1-6-15] Tuska World Event

Recommended Posts

From: http://[Use Quick Find Code]/a=13/c=UL0Ou9z7aXI/l=0/sl=0/[Please Use QuickFind Code]?396,397,222,65632328,60#67

 

Mod Deg:

 

(I'm pretty sure Chris is covering your other question)

 

With the next game update, we plan on changing the way the points are given out. After the first thousand you'll get a few more stabs at a diminished rate. After a few stabs at that diminished rate you'll start getting an even further diminished one at which you can happily stab tuska all day if you'd like.

Also Mod Chris L says tuska will be revisitable after the event.

They've also said they're going to tweak it so it's closer between Tuska and the players and also mention of looking at the factions. Coincidentally the Godless have won today so 2-1 Tuska.

So she never actually crashes?

 

Well that's underwhelming to know

well uh, "revisitable" and "plowed into the planet" aren't necessarily mutually exclusive

 

there's just varying degrees of alive and positioning that we get to work with

So an hour and a half post-reset and we've nearly cleared another day. Now it's too easy. I do hope they have a method in there to slowly increase the amount of contribution required or something to make it actually close. That or people are crowding reset.

yeah clearly amazed at how fast the bar was being raised, but i figure things will change in the coming weeks. I think Tuska has some time to still win this since she already has two notches on her pelt.

Me behave? Seriously? As a child I saw Tarzan almost naked, Cinderella arrived home from a party after midnight, Pinocchio told lies, Aladin was a thief, Batman drove over 200 miles an hour, Snow White lived in a house with seven men, Popeye smoked a pipe and had tattoos, Pac man ran around to digital music while eating pills that enhanced his performance, and Shaggy and Scooby were mystery solving hippies who always had the munchies. The fault is not mine! if you had this childhood and loved it put this in your signature!

I seriously don't care if Tuska wins or not. It's pretty obvious that no one would be able really rally enough with default capping alone, so they probably wanted some sort of push to prevent it...thing is, no one's going to push to prevent it unless there's incentive to do so at the end of it all. Overall I think Tuska colliding with the planet and being rebuffed in some manner is more interesting than sucking Tuska dry of anima mundi juice.

so it is like 5 hours after day reset and tuska has already lost

 

something is not very well balanced.

Tbh I don't really blame Jagex to much for Tuska being beaten so easy today.

 

First two days despite good efforts it was kinda an unreachable goal so they rightly tweaked to make it a bit easier.

The trouble is now its like two days post-launch people are getting into the swing of it - more people turning up, more people piling in right at reset etc. so the tweaks to make it not impossible now become too much and need to go back the other way a bit.

 

Trying to predict player turn out can't be easy considering how random it must be and at least they are trying to tweak to keep it a close fight, it just happens that initial launch didn't see as many as they thought making tuska defeat overly hard and as soon as they fix it you get a surge of late arrivers to the content making it overly easy.

On the Q&A they mentioned they plan to change the numbers monday, since it was a bit too hard. But, if Tuska get 16 days she wins. So they may have deliberately made it easier while they work on the actual change so that players don't lose for a full week while waiting.

The treasure hunter promotion is until 8th, does that mean that after that we'll stop receiving credits from the event too ?

The Tuska Q&A is interesting. One that stood out was this
[hide=]"Concerning the lost and tormented souls that appear in the world event. They are from one of the previous planets Tuska destroyed. While they are indeed human they are not from Gielinor."[/hide]
and

Theoretically yes. We'll have to see what happens ;)"

Vorago is the Anima mundi, right? so if he kills Tuska, then he'll just siphon the Godpower and add it to the anima of the world..[/hide]

That's the most logical step. Vorago is the world soul, so any god he kills would be added to the world soul, like guthix, but with less leakage.

Just for info - doing the event a 2nd time doesn't give any extra credits.

Actually it only took around two ::/, proving the point further.

 

But to Jagex's credit, it's not easy to guess how many players might sign in and play and how much they are going to contribute.

Just thinking about it .. the whole astromancer outfit "costs" 40m ... (if you decide to sell the credits on G.E.). That's like 2 months of membership :D

Is the contribution cap experience based?

If so, is it then actually better to AVOID standing on charged spines if you want to get as much tuska fragments as possible?
No. If you stand on a bad spine you'll get less xp and the same amount of fragments.
 
 
Okay, but Mod Deg also said this on Twitter:
 

Noon-active spines waste your cap. You'll get less total xp and less fragments.

 

 
So which is it?

keep in mind that even if tuska is killed, they still haven't come up with a way to slow her down enough to not crush the planet

 

as for trusting jagex's knowledge about their own game

 

uh, we're gonna need a third opinion

I guess their idea of fantasy might be to throw conservation of momentum out the window.  :rolleyes:

Since the idea is to weaken Tuska to lower her anima mundi shield so Vorago/Gods are able to reach her to attack I'd of thought momentum is a non issue,

 

Specific god/Vorago arrives, smacks Tuska in the face killing her. The meeting force of the attack and Tuska would halt her or would at least alter her course - something we could then further purposefully alter when shes just a corpse to make her fly into a nice moon-like orbit or w/e.

 

It's not like we are just gonna stab her in teh face until she dies then leave it be - the stabbing is just phase 1 to allow the gods to get there to stop her hitting the planet.

Doesn't matter, it is boring either, so non-active spine standing while doing other stuff is the way to do this imo... 

 

In other news... I just did the event on my own, and it was much easier... so the best advice to get 100% is to try to go in on your own?
