Hello Dyme!

Dyme Bounty Hunters - The game

Hunt and eradicate the daily bounty set by me, a successful hunt will reward you with points. Each week the points will be totted up and a winner will be announced. Win more weekly bounty hunts than your competitors to receive a little something at the end of the month.

Method

Each week a new bounty hunt will be added to this thread and will look like this:

Bounty 01/06/2012

100 Slings- 15 points
75 Hops- 15 points
5 transports- 10 points​

You can only be awarded the bounty points through Attacking enemy players, a maximum of 40 points is available per week. Its your choice to kill some or all of the bounty posted.

Whoever posts the bounty first will get the full number of points.
If you post 2nd, you get total points -1, if you post 3rd you get total points -2 etc etc, down to -5.

E.g.
I post 100 slingers killed first. I get 15 points added.
Player B then posts 100 slingers killed, they get 14 points.
Player C posts that they've killed 5 transports, they get 10 points.
I then post that i've killed 5 transports, i get 9 points.
etc etc
The 6th player to post that they've killed 5 transports (player C, myself and 4 other people) will get 5 points. All players who post 5 transports killed with then get 5 points.

This is simply to make a draw more unlikely and also rewards people for completing the bounties quickly.

Submitting your bounty

You simply need to paste up the report code, I will check whether it is legit or not in-game. :)
If possible, please include a screenshot, but this is not mandatory.
It doesn't matter if you submit them in multiple posts, I will simply merge all of your posts together as they come in, though it would be helpful if they came all at once!
The full points go to whoever submits the complete bounty first.

Please note an addition to the rules-
You are not allowed to simply support a target with your own units and attack it to complete the bounty.
The units killed cannot belong to you, an alliance mate or a player in a pacted alliance.

Thank you
Tom

Unless their is either a significant increase in participation over the next two days or an increase in the number of posts here telling me what i need to change to get people to take part, the competition will have to be cancelled.

Just an FYI.

Hi there folks,
I have had some fantastic feedback from people- Thank for for that.

A few comments from me-
It seems that we have two issues.
1- People don't like having to make the effort of screenshotting and posting their reports.
I'm afraid that there is nothing i can do about that... I have no other way of seeing what you killed!

2- People are attacking, however more often then not they are losing the attacks and as such, get the '?' under units killed.
Again, there really isn't anything i can do about that. I looked into the possibility of getting an in-game moderator to look at the reports and tell me what was killed, however we are not able to do that.


I will make the next 3 bounties less difficult which means that more of you will be able to complete them. :)

Thanks again, and keep sending in PM's if you have any other comments.

Here is the 2nd bounty for you- Remember that you only have to send in the report code now.
Also, if you submit reports in multiple posts, please create a new post, do not simply edit your existing one.




Good luck, and enjoy!

...aaaaaaaand cancelled due to lack of participation.
Thank you to those who did try and who took part, it just isn't worth it to keep going i'm afraid.

Sorry about this guys, i'll do my best to re-work the competition so it will attract more participants.

Thanks
Tom
