Forum Challenge #3: Accept The Most Nomads, and Live!
« on: June 21, 2014, 09:15:27 AM »
The challenge: Accept the nomads in your village and survive for one year. 

(THE MOST AT ONE TIME)

Screencaps of the nomads tab from your town hall and overview tab when you accept them and an overview screencap from one year later will be required.

The first champion will be announced July 15th and then anytime a successful challenge is posted after that a new champion will be crowned!

A wall of champions is currently being designed and will be accessible to all members and guests to see who our champions are!

Surviving for a year, isn't so hard, even with a large batch as it is doubtful the whole town would die off. Maybe there should be a percentage of population or something left to qualify as surviving?

I would also suggest pairing a screencap of the amount of Nomads that want in, along with the population graph right after you accept them.

Yes, a screencap of the overview before accepting the nomads, the nomads tab that shows how many want to join your village, and then the overview screencap from one year later.

 I have noticed that the higher your population, the more likely you are to see a larger number of Nomads. So @irrelevant with his large population and my map of Sanctuary and many others that have reached 1700 or higher would have both an option of accepting a large group and of dying rather quickly  :D. I would love to try it on my map of Sanctuary but am quite certain that accepting another +200 Nomads would send me into a very bad situation. Like no Sanctuary and no space for more graveyards.  :-[  ;D Oh well. Could always delete those dog-gone farms I suppose. Maybe even make more forests.

  Otherwise.....Nah... I will pass.

I am just pleased as a sweet pickle hiding in a hamburger patch I finally got screenshots to load though. Miss the newb designation however.

So this is basically a "how big a colony can you grow" sort of challenge, since the number of nomads depends on your colony size?  I would need to fully develop a large map to be competitive in this challenge.  I'll see whether I can do that in the time allotted.

Obviously that person on Shining Rock who had 3000 citizens would win this one.   ;D

High pop can certainly help, but you have to survive after you take in the nomads and high pop towns are usually right on the edge of a death spiral!

Just a clarification...even if taking nomads kills off 3/4s of my population they have still survived, right? Or do they need to survive with a similar population?

You just need to "survive" one whole year. What's left of your village may not be what you wanted!

Ain't that the truth. It feels like I imagine juggling and walking a tightrope would.

In fact, I hate it so much I'm doing it 6 hours a day  ;)
