Veteran Rewards

Postby Augur » Sat Jul 05, 2014 10:29 am

It's time to show some love to the EU veterans out there!

EXPLORER POINTS RULES LOCATED HERE.

Please calculate your EP based on your oldest, active account:

+1 EP for membership in good standing (no warnings) per quadrimester (based on the date of your initial account registration)

These are the quadrimesters:
    February 1st
    June 1st
    October 1st


For GM/MOD longevity bonuses, I'm going to apply the following:
If you were a GM or MOD for under a year: nothing
Most Mod's became GM's or were GM's at one point in time, and some did double duty trying to figure out what fit best for them. For EP Redemption purposes, you should count either or, but not both. If you were a Mod in good standing for over a year: +5 EP. If you were a GM before or after and did not earn more than +5 EP, gain 5 EP. If you would have gained more than 5 EP, do not collect the Mod EP bonus.
Examples:
--Damocles was the GM for DRS for 2 years. At 2 EP every 4 months, that equates to +12 EP. He then proceeded to be MTD for 3 years. Since Mod's only get a flat +5 EP, Damocles takes his +12 EP and runs with it.
--T-Rex was the Moderator Fixer Jones for 1 year (+5 EP), did an outstanding job and then became a GM. Well, he he had to bow out of being a GM and dropped down to 1 account since the Moderator position was filled. He only was a GM for 6 months (+2 EP), he cashes in on the Mod time, and not the GM time and nets a total of +5 EP.
--Major Arcana originally was the moderator Master at Arms. He was in that position for 8 months (no EP because he didn't meet the threshold of 1 year). He became PAS's GM for 8 months (+4 EP), and then had to drop his GM account. He only collects +4 EP.

REBOOT DISCOUNT: 50% discount (round down) to the following EP costs:

(5 EP) Second Character Account
(10 EP) Third Character Account
(20 EP) Fourth Character Account

(10 EP) Per Each Additional Character Account (no discount beyond 4th character slot)

LIMITED TIME OFFER. WHEN THE REBOOT IS COMPLETE, THIS DISCOUNT WILL BE ENDED.

As a result of this policy, no new character submissions will be accepted until the end of the Reboot for other than a new player's first character.


In order to have access to future benefits, you will first have to pay for these past rewards.

I am striking that section from the EP system in favor of greater oversight of GM rewards--especially magic items.

Corrections to existing, non-canonical magic items are already underway, and some are going to be simply BROKEN.

For those characters with broken magic items from previous adventures, I offer you two options:

1. Work with James Howlett and I to bring your item into compliance
2. Receive a minor EP reward in exchange for that item's total removal from the game

:arrow: From here forward, all non-canonical items will be validated by TGM before being allowed in the game.
:arrow: Violating this will policy result in EP penalties as well as the removal of such items. (You will be notified.)
:arrow: For players, this only means that tinkerers need to do a good job.
:arrow: For GMs, this means that you need to follow the rules on magic item creation that are posted when devising some cool, unique item for your players--and get it validated by TGM prior to its inclusion in the game.
:arrow: As is already the case, AGMs and GMs should work together to determine what rewards are appropriate to a group.

This will fundamentally alter the veterans rewards calculations in an obvious manner. Please revise your posts.


Example:

Player: Sara

Accounts
Mierin / (0 EP) First Character Account
Brianna Clarke (-2 EP [50% discount]) Second Character Account, (-6 EP) Access Unlock: Conversion Character (Non-Native)
AGM: Argent

So Sara's tab would look something like this:
(-2 EP) Second Character Account
(-6 EP) Access Unlock: Conversion Character (Non-Native)
Total: -8 EP

Sara's oldest account is Mierin: 10 Jan 2006.

That nets her +24 EP due to her long time in good standing.

She can easily pay off her entire "tab" (I'm liking that term!), and still have 16 EP as a reward for her dedicated play on EU.

For those players like Carl who have been playing a single character on EU for years now, this is likely to be quite a windfall.

Post your calculations as a reply to this thread.

You were correct, Bryanov, but thanks for putting in the extra effort to be certain.

All OW players who did not have an account on EU prior to the merger should read this thread and post a reply.

Then each player should post a reply to the EP Ledger thread (once the above has been done) with all the pertinent data.

As far as I can tell, 1 EP for good standing, for each quadrimester.

I created the character February 21, 2013, so 2 quadrimesters.

2 EP...

This system is new to me as I left in 2014 after the death of my Father. I first joined in 2010 and left in 2014. I joined As Kaitlyn Rogers. And She was level 7 when I retired her. I joiined with Dark Lord as a different character.

Accounting for four years plus the starting Allocation I believe I have 10 points coming. If this is incorrect please let me know.

Thanks, Dani

Apologies, I hope I'm doing this correctly.

Player Kiadan
Main character - Kiadan Slywth in Phaseworld September 11th 2007 to November 1st 2010 - EP point total = 11

GM Account - Nyoghta First Quoted post is Mar 7th 2008 Final post Feburary 4th 2010 - EP point total = 12


This would give the new character/player a total of 23 EP points.
