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.

@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.

Ben -

Why doesn't the additional standings get added to contacts who are at zero? One of the main reasons I bought the trench was to keep all 3 faction minions above zero for encoded notes but nothing was added to the ones at zero. All contacts should mean all contacts and I'm pretty sure 0 + 2 = 2. :)

Is there a skill being made availiable at any point soon that will enable us to analyse fingerprints??? I remember Droid asking about a machine that we could buy for an agency...damn good idea i think. In real life we would be using something along the lines of AFIS.

I only ask because i had to quit a case beacause i had 3 handprints in one case with 3 people who had alibi's with the Police cop as well. Think about it......5 suspects agiainst whom i had to check 3 fingerprints each........15 in total and then to top it off i had to ask the same cop for 3 alibis. 18 questions for one townie is a little extreme don't you think. Yes it was a really hard case with 8 suspects, but even that is taking the pee. I HAD to quit the case because i ran out of options. I'd used a gift, bribed and wasted a lot of resources because of 3 clues being all the same thing :(

Hi Night Owl,
Did you tried manipulating the police clerk? If you used manipulation, you can use it multiple times ^_^

with 45 (example) standings with police clerk, you could get:
2 free questions
2 questions from bribing
4 questions with expensive perfume
1 test manipulation (let say intimidation)
2 questions with charm
2 more questions with charm
2 more questions with charm

there you have it, 15 altogether ^_^ hehe, personally, that's the only way to match them all.
