Gems and Minerals Scavenge Hunt Commentary

The top part of the list was very turbulent throughout the game: Levek
made the first submission, then Krynna and Chthonic got started, and
soon Krynna started to dominate the contest past the 50-submission
mark, Dudemeister second.

At this point we also implemented an alternative score counting method
because artificers were seen to have a benefit, and excluded ficer
gatherables from it: on his first coffee break, Calvin took over first
position on that list for a moment, then Chthonic took over
that one again.

After the first 15 hours or so, as the contest was nearing 200
submissions total, Druenarrii had taken over first place on both
lists, after which the artificer class benefit was mostly only
trailing in the total scores’ Bear guild lead. Lavalamp brought
Snowfolk to the lead without ficer scores, and a few hours later had
wrestled the first place in total scores from Druenarrii. Levek had
risen second, to overtake Lavalamp a couple hours later. At this
point, Ravens and Eldar had joined the fray as well.

Creative players tried to stuff their fluon selves into the box, and
pondered hijacking Sandruby, but he declared he would not submit! At
the 400 submitted items mark, Calvin had taken second place. At the
500 point, he still was second, but the leader had changed to Chthonic
who stayed there for several hours before being wrestled off his place
in the sun by Levek, only 1,5 hours before reboot, at 600 total items
submitted and 23 total participants. At this point the Monks and Chaos
had entered the contest as well.

The highest two submitters passed the 100-submission mark, as did
their guilds.

The Bears dominated the scores for a long time, but eventually the
Snowfolk passed them and achieved victory! Scythe followed after in
its own class, with Knights fourth. Of the smaller guilds, The Monks
made the most submissions, followed closely by The Eldar, with Ravens
and Chaos tied for last place.

Knights and Scythe were not particularly well distributed: both had
their top submitter cover all but 4 of the guild’s submissions,
whereas both the Snowfolk and Black Bear had a more even contribution
towards the total score despite having very high performers. Bears
were collaborative on the event in general, and also used the guild
chutes effectively to collaborate on duplicated finds.

The Courts of Chaos entered the contest almost when it was over,
likely reasoning that in chaotic terms, the activity was only just
starting. Very fittingly, their sole submission was a lump of clay,
which the submission box confusedly accepted.
