  1. Heroes! The Vanguard League of Everlasting is happy to announce plans are firming up for the 3rd Base in Paragon City Contest! We'll make a more detailed announcement as the contest gets closer, but the highlights so far: Date: 15 October 2020 Top Prize: 5,000,000,000 (Five Billion Influence) Total Prize Money: 15,000,000,000 (Fifteen Billion) New Categories! Special Guest Judge: Veracor You've got a little more than 2 months and we'll make more details available as we go, but this is your heads up to START BUILDING! -BluShield
  2. Hi Everyone! The Vanguard League is getting ready for this Fall's Best Base in Paragon City contest in October, and we'd like to pick your brains a bit. Currently we judge bases on Theme, Technical Merit and Creativity, e.g. Do you have a well defined theme and are sticking to it? Does the base do interesting or innovative things with the tools and objects we have available? Is it's design creative and unique, or is it one in a long line of common bases? The problem is, with these parameters we sometimes end up comparing apples and oranges. We've tried to address this with Judge's Awards so that bases that resonate with a judge (or two) get looped in, even if they may not have perfect construction or use the existing object set in conventional ways. This time we'd like to try something different. Stealing a idea from cinema awards, we are thinking about establishing some categories that contestants could join. Just like the Oscars have "Best Actor", "Best Supporting Actor", "Best Key Grip" etc., we'd like to add a FEW (no more than 4) categories to the contest, so we can better compare like to like. The question before the house: What should those categories be? For Example: Best RP Base, seems logical and obvious, but what else should we think about? I'm going to leave this thread up for a few weeks, so mull it over and let us know what categories you'd like to see and why. I can't promise we'll use them, and certainly we won't use them all (more than 4 or 5 categories will dilute the prize pool too much). But chime in and contribute your ideas for categories. -Blu
  3. Windows: Twice now I have gotten Windfall from a Lords of Winter Pack, but it doesn't seem to do anything. Looking at my influence gain both before and after using it, it's the same! Also it doesn't look like my drop rate for recipes is any larger than it was before I used it. Alt: Everlasting server, Quillamina, running Terminator Fire Farm. The first time I had 5 teammates, and they all reported getting the same influence as I did, which I thought was weird. The second time I ran the same fire farm alone. Unfortunately, I didn't capture a screen shot. I did write down the inf I was getting: 128164 - EB 64081 -Boss 20504 -Lt. 5979 -Minon Then re-ran the test after Windfall expired and got exactly the same numbers. I couldn't really tell if the drop rate was higher. I'll file this on the bug site.
  4. Apologies. Re-reading this, I see we were not clear on the process. A number of folks contacted us through in-game email and we were able to schedule almost all of them. We visited all the bases and announced ourselves. In a few cases, we got tours right then or set them up for later. Sorry for being unclear, and I'll make sure we're more explicit about how to get that set up for next round in the Fall.
  5. Outstanding, I am really looking forward to this. I have a large, fortress-like base I am working on, and this will hopefully help me around some problems I'm having. (especially with the stairs.)
