Parking Lot, Antares Consolidated Armourers
Last minute shopping for Life Day was a bad idea… what an inconvenient time for the Brotherhood to go to War. This list is way too long...
Well, my hand hurts. Uh… from writing reccs, I swear!
Last report of the year! You know what that means, last update on the Disciples of Dakhan points placing before the end of this eligibility period. More details on that later, but first, the news:
Big News! Sang has been named a Son of Sadow, the highest Clan honor able to be bestowed upon a member of Naga Sadow.
Post-GJW credit haul went well for CNS, and Sang gets to go shopping (with the Summit members) with an additional 60,000,000 credits. We had 34% participation in available competition bins, which is really excellent.
WAR IS OVER! (If you want it). (...get the reference?) We got fourth! Proud of you guys.
Huge News: GM Pravus, in accordance with his rights as Grandmaster and in consulation with the Star Chamber has closed Clan Tarentum.
Voice Report details some nice points about the GJW with great infographics.
Atra put out a new Combat Master Report with some updates on what us minions are being whipped into doing, plus some great writing tips.
Drac released a FIST report detailing some big GJW numbers, plus PoB levels for the new Battlefront game.
Headmaster Report is out with some job postings and project updates.
Some open positions, if you’re interested:
Getting close to the end of this eligibility period! Discussed below are the points before the last 9 days of this round. The majority of those who display any activity have made the 60-point cutoff, which is great to see. However, there is a drastic bias towards gaming points. As discussed during the release, the system will be adjusted from phase-to-phase. Thus, there will be major balancing during the next phase which will be discussed in my January report.
These are the points for the DoD eligibility period 7/1/17 to 12/31/17 as of December 23rd, 2017:
But, because I prefer to see my data visualized in figure form:
As you can see, those members who’s bar is colored green and fall above the blue line (indicating the 60-point eligibility cut-off) are poised to be inducted into the Disciples of Dakhan during the next period of January 1st to June 30th.
I’ve made a point of including the CNS and HMR Summits in the figure to demonstrate that these members, with positions of leadership, are also highly active. This should be an indication to the rest of the House, and new members to come, that usually activity leads to appropriateness for positions.
Also, I’m a big nerd, so let’s do some statistics:
These box plots represent each member of the House (min-max with median; no CNS or HMR summits) for each period that I updated the points. Update 1 was included in my 2nd report, Update 2 was included in my 3rd report, the Post-GJW points were never released (but were tabulated the day after competitions were scored) and Update 4 is this one. The blue dotted line is the 60-point eligibility cutoff. The statistics were performed as an ANOVA with an Uncorrected Dunn’s post-hoc test calculated in GraphPad Prism 7.03. P-values displayed on the figure are <0.05 (one asterisk) and <0.0001(four asterisks), and “n.s.” meaning non-significant. The superscript Phi indicates that the statistical comparison was only 12 days in between tabulations.
What an we learn from this? Well, activity has been on a fairly steady upward trend. It’s impossible to completely attribute this to initiating the DoD system, but when looking at individual members it’s clear there are high, low and no-performers. The high and low performers are gaining points at the same rate (slope), and the no-performers need to get off their butts :P. The GJW gave a boost to activity reaching statistical significance. It will be interesting to see if large events (Feuds, etc.) result in a similar activity boost.
To repeat from last time we discussed points:
Remember, the point here is that the DoD is a competitive team, and doing competitive things gets you on the team, and allows you to reap the rewards. Be competitive, participate (well) in competitions and gaming and getting on the DoD is very possible.
Placement on the team will be finalized on 1/1/2018.
These are the last 9 days of the DoD eligibility period so new contracts will be released in January. While the system is biased towards gamers, I would recommend those who haven’t hit the cut-off and wish to make it on the team to go get some Clusters. This won’t be so easy to do moving forward.
P.S. Remember, a random member will be selected to receive an art commission!
And now for a brief intermission…
Hey guys welcome to the Aedile’s Corner for the month of December. We were waiting for the results of the Great Jedi War as well as the fiction update so we could determine where we were going to go with our house story but the fictions are still being worked on. I know the DC is going to make this fiction great and I can’t wait to see what happens.
We saw a great deal come from the war and lots of our participants have been rewarded for their contributions:
Malik – Dark Cross
Locke – Steel Cross
Vosiri – Anteian Cross
Methyas – Anteian Cross
Aul – Grand Cross
Drae – Promotion to Hunter (JM3) and a Dark Cross
Erik – Promotion to Warrior (EQ1)
Evelynn – Promotion to Battlelord (EQ3)
These are the highlights from Shar Dakhan during the war and I am proud of each and every member who submitted and contributed to Naga Sadow coming in 4th place. Guys we missed 3rd by the smallest of margins. Moving forward I would ask everyone to take a look at competitions that’s are in wars and vendettas. See if there are a bunch of easy things you could throw together, and then do what you can. That’s all we can ask of you as your leadership team. I will always lead from the front and try to push you guys where I can. If anyone needs any help my door is always open. CNS is my home, HSD is my family, and we defend our own and help our own!
For CNS, FOR HSD!
Oh, Jurdan was also promoted to Battlelord (EQ3)… modest bugger.
