Mocking Grand Contest (v0.55)

작년

We know from experience that TheGrandestine can never make a unit that is balanced on release.

In this thread, you will comment with 3 numbers:

  • How many units will be in the update.
  • What % are going to be ridiculously underpowered.
  • What % are going to be ridiculously overpowered.

Closest in each category will get 10 RP.
Second closest in each category will get 7 RP. (It will count as "second closest" if you say the exact same number as someone else but you did it after them.)

Yes, "underpowered" and "overpowered" are going to be subjective. Here's an example of how I would score this.

  • It's v0.44, the new units are Greed, Snake, Pikeman, Reaver, Mercenary, Envy. The first four I consider overpowered and the last two are considered underpowered. (This should be pretty undisputed to anyone who was playing then.) So you would be rewarded for saying the closest numbers to 4/6 (overpowered) or 2/6 (underpowered).

  • Even though base Snake and base Pikeman were pretty underpowered, their upgraded versions were so overpowered that in my opinion, "overpowered" describes the unit better.

Envy base had no melee attacks and costed 8 on release, but gained kingattack and costed 10 at ++. This is still an underpowered unit overall.

  • A unit is considered ridiculously overpowered if any of its tiers are.
  • A unit is considered ridiculously underpowered if at least 2 of its tiers are, and no other tier is overpowered at all.
  • A unit is also considered ridiculously underpowered if only 1 of its tiers are, but the rest are underpowered.

Rewards will be given out in a literal unknown date. Also if I think I'm actually wrong about an evaluation you could expect another wave of rewards.

Edit:

New rulings:

  • The overpowered% and underpowered% can't add to more than 100%. (It can add to less than 100% though.)
  • Edited posts cannot count for the contest, because I cannot check if the edit was recent or not. You'll have to make a new comment for it.

10/0/10

It means that 10 pieces will be affected by the update,
exactly 0 pieces will be severely underpowered, and
exactly 10 pieces will be ridiculously overpowered.

Also, can I post more than one?

I think there will be 6 new units, 2/6 underpowered, 1/6 overpowered and 3/6 properly balanced

I think there will be 4 units, we already know Illusionist and AfterImage will be two of them. I think 2/4 of these units will be severely underpowered on release and 2/4 will be severely overpowered on release.
Also if he confirms more than 4 units before the release can I change my guess?

I have a (new) rule that says you can't edit your post, you should comment a new one.
No one should change their guess after new information. I'm probably just going to deny any newer comments from qualifying if a unit amount is revealed or such.

3 new units
100% underpowered
0% overpowered

middle ground is boring

2 new units
15% will be OP by probability
40% will be UP by probability

I think grand will finally delete units in the new update to simplify the game, so the number of new units will be -20. Of course he will only delete unpopular (read: underpowered) units so people are happy, for a net of 120% underpowered units. Since we need this to add to 100% or less, -20% of these will be overpowered.

8 new units
2/8 ridiculously UP
4/8 ridiculously OP

4 new units
2 will be underpowered (50%)
1 will be super op (25%)
lastly
1 will smell really bad and not be used whatsoever, despite being quite balanced. (1 unit next update, not percentage)

69% up 21% op 5 units

I think there will be 4 units, we already know Illusionist and AfterImage will be two of them. I think 2/4 of these units will be severely underpowered on release and 2/4 will be severely overpowered on release.
