Challenge Points and Coats

Sleuth Admin
Sleuth Admin

As of now, Multi Sleuth Showdowns and Treasure Hunts both award Challenge Points to the winner(s). As you have no doubt noticed, Challenge Points are a requirement for purchasing a new type of equippable item, COATS.

Additional Notes:

* Coats are gendered! You can only buy or wear a coat that fits your detective's gender. (maybe this rule will be relaxed the next time Mardi Gras rolls around).

* Although it is possible to play a Multisleuth Showdown by yourself, you will only earn Challenge Points if there is at least one other opponent. So round up your friends!

* On the other hand, the winning agency in a treasure hunt will all gain Challenge Points, regardless of how many other agencies are competing.

* You cannot currently store a coat in an agency equipment locker. This feature is coming in the next few days (still haven't decided if they will take the same number of slots as a gift).

* You cannot currently take a coat on or off. This may be added in the future, but I haven't decided whether or not it would be preferable that you could do this.

* Coats do not currently degrade. Sometime over the next few days, they will start degrading with usage. By usage, I mean that anytime you gain a benefit from a coat, it will wear out a bit. Eventually a coat will fall apart.

I see ^_^

Good opinions given by Jen and Droid. So final decision is up to Sleuth Admin. To think of it, if there's not only 1 - 2 players in agency doing TH, then having various levels of townies would promote more teamwork ^_^ hence while lower level members do favors for those townie they've unlocked while those who have unlocked higher level townies do favors for higher level townie.

Of course, adding Pawn Broker and Fixer is still up to Sleuth Admin.

It has always been a handicap having those casegivers in TH.
But i like it, its challenging to maintain them.

Concerning the coats, Ben does not have activated the coat to wear of. SO durability is not an issue yet.
Still i don't like a flimsly trench, i know women are more carefull with their cloths in real-life , maybe thats why ;P

More important i would love the coats to WORK with progress in TH!
They still don't right?

I intended both male and female trench coats to be flimsy. So, there was a mistake made, but not the one you thought.

I'm switching women's trench to flimsy now.

To reiterate: Coats are not currently degrading at all. So, durability isn't effecting anybody yet. I won't make coats degrade until I finish work on agency lockers that will allow item storage there, as well as gifts.

Thank you very much Ben ^_^

You're the best.

I think you should make a special coat locker, some of the perfume bottles are a bit leaky and everything in our locker smells of Chanel and I don't want my coat to smell of it ;)

Ben, what exactly are challenge points and how do we earn them? And, For those who did not subscribe, will getting a coat be applicable to us?

I agree with Droid :)

One more question:
Challenge points (CP) are shown on our "CV site" and it is good.
I buy a coat and ...? Number of CP will decrease, or we will have the same situation like with skill points: absolute number of points (shows for everybody) and (in brackets) available number of points (shows only for detective)?

@Sinthu:
If you've never been subscribed after these coats are introduced, then you would never get a chance to buy the coats, as there's currently only 2 ways to earn these Challenge Points (CP).

One is Treasure Hunting, Second is Showdown. If you're subscribed, you can take this chance to join any agency which is doing treasure hunting, then you can earn 1 challenge point per successfully won Treasure Hunt by your agency. Besides that, maybe Sleuth Admin could add-on future updates on personal hunt, to get challenge points, but of course, that's up to him to decide.
