I really think the 'star player' aspect of this feature is ridiculous. For one thing it's completely random as far as I can tell, and for another thing, it's impossible to choose the correct star player if you are also trying to choose the best team.

It's more designed as a way of encouraging people to pick different players, since otherwise everyone picks exactly the same to maximise prize points.

Wow, I only 4/5 of the best team players.

As long as their prize is also available to redeem at the end

Yeah, I'm expecting all the new people to be star player. I'd rather have the points.

My problem with the "Star Player" is that we don't know what the criteria we're picking the "Star Player" for. Had I known the Star Player would have been for one of the newbies I would have put one of the newbies on my team. If the criteria is going to be for a Forward I obviously wouldn't pick a Defender or Goalie.

Infact, since none of the newbies were high scorers, having one of them be a star player also goes against picking the team you'll think will be the best. For Star Player they should not only tell you the criteria but also let you pick any staff member you feel would fulfill that criteria even if they're not on your team.

Huh, I also got 4/5 of the best. To be honest, I picked my team based on how much their heads and bodies looked like the same art style.

catsrnice, 06/14/2020, 8:37 am NST
I mainly picked by name recognition. People who've been around for years or interacted with the community

I pick them based on the scores last year Worked out well in previous years, and I had 4/5 for the first round so I'm sticking to that strategy.

Isn't JellyNeo doing a tournament this year?

Best. Comment. Ever.

@bunella: We're not hosting a JN Staff Tournament for the Altador Cup this year. Instead, we're focusing on redesigning our main site here, updating some *very* rusty code, and preserving SWF content. (Like the remastered Battle for Meridell comics we just released!)
