History of victories

From BlogNomic Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

This is an attempt to apply a taxonomy of different victory types to the history of BlogNomic. Those types are:-

  • Conventional: A player wins through regular dynastic-rule gameplay.
  • Scam: A player exploits the rules in an unexpected manner to achieve victory.
  • Pooling: Several players combine their resources to allow one of their number (often selected at random) to win.

Conventional types:

  • [Assisted]: Assisted conventional. Win that relies on an alliance/collaboration but there is no Pooling maneuver, for example, a trade of resources or synergy without deliberate/planned self-sacrifice.

Scam types:

  • [As Written] Read-as-written (RAW). A rule or rules being exploited in a surprising but uncontested manner.
  • [Late] Late reveal. A player delaying informing others that a rule may have been broken, to gain advantage.
  • [Admin] Admin advantage. A scam which could only be performed by an admin player.

Pooling types:

  • [Resource] Pooling a tradeable game resource
  • [Action] One or more players taking an action to give another victory
  • [Bloc Vote] Block-voting as a group, in order to assign victory among that group
  • [Altered Bloc Vote] Same as above, but voting mechanics are altered by some dynastic rule.

Other Dynasty end types:

  • [Election] Election: a victor is elected by the players (typically for dynastic merit or popularity), either through an election among several players, or by passing a vote to crown one specific winner.
  • [Pure Random] A random player chosen among an impartial set of players is the victor.
  • [Merit Random] Random, but the victor is a set of players chosen by their merit in the game (for example, two tied players in the lead)
  • [Meta] No victor, the Dynasty results in a Metadynasty.

Combination types (to be implemented below):

  • X + Y: Combination of the two types (for example, a scam that relies on self-sacrificial action of several players in a cabal).
  • X / Y: Presence of both types without them being part of the same manuvuer by the same victor/cabal, although each being instrumental to victory.
  • X // Y: Presence of both types without them being performed by the same victor/cabal.
