Re: Scores 2/9

Merged Fury saw a pretty close battle for first spot, with 468 points separating the top two. It got a lot closer on Merged Light though, where -Eternity- led for more or less the entire GRB, had to settle for second with the slightest of margins when the bonuses were added afterwards - only 51 points in it for top spot, and 218 points separating the top 4. Have to feel a bit for -Eternity-, as it would have been their first GRB win since 2011. Don't give up!
 


Well done ET!!!! Glad to see the return to the top!

DirtyLittleFreakz was leading for most of GRB. I guess Destruction saved a boss or something since they passed us in the last 5 minutes. Had GRB been 5 minutes longer we would have caught them Smile

Without having got the official word from our timekeeper in the guild, I reckon the GRB was slightly longer than 60 minutes today, given almost half of the various top 6 guilds set new guild records. This GRB was also one of comebacks as well as a jubilee of sorts.

The comebacks first: On the merged server, Dark_Lords (AoL) returned to the top 6 for the first time since November last year and with a vengeance, trouncing their guild record with a good 2,500 points, while on Phoenix Fury, S.W.A.T. reappeared in the top 6 after missing out on it for the last 11 weeks, also with a new guild record. Well done, both!

Then the jubilee. Nights Fury on Merged UoF achieved their 50th GRB win on record. To be honest, they might have won some GRBs before I started keeping records, but in my tally, they are the fourth guild to achieve 50 or more GRB wins. It's worth a little celebration over a long term effort. ^^

New guild GRB records in the top 6 (note, guilds that are fresh to the ranks might have scored higher before, but not ranked in the top 6), old records from Lailah, Teos, Etain and Gaia carried over:

68726 Nights Fury - Merged UoF
51428 Ghost Division - PX UoF
34909 Superior Circumstance - PX UoF
31137 S.W.A.T. - PX UoF
28794 Suicide Kings - PX UoF
69941 -Eternity- - Merged AoL
68531 Dark_Lords - Merged AoL
49923 ShadowDemon Society - PX AoL
45083 The Demigods Of Olympia - PX AoL
36068 The Keepers of the Faith - PX AoL

New guild rank records in the top 6 (records from Lailah, Teos, Etain and Gaia carried over):

2nd: Ghost Division - PX UoF
2nd: ShadowDemon Society - PX AoL
5th: S.W.A.T. - PX UoF

A day of some sick scores and a new guild making it to top spot!

sovereignty and Celestial Legion blasted out new records on Merged Light that went well beyond anything we've seen before, and ShadowDemon Society became the fourth ever guild to rank as #1 on Phoenix Light. Well done, all!

ChaosTheory extended their unbroken run of wins on Phoenix Fury to 23 weeks, and look set to keep extending it for a while yet.

And we had a guild making their first ever top 6 rank: Defiance on Phoenix Light! Congratulations!

After the merge, getting into the top 6 has become a very hard thing on the merged server. As a general rule, five of the six guilds that ranked one week are found in the top six the next. And the Light side is quite harder than the Fury side to break into. Since the first merge, 16 Fury guilds have made it into the top 6, while only 11 Light guilds have managed to do the same. Also, we have still yet to see a new guild that never made the top 6 on the old servers, break into the merged top 6. It is starting to look like that will be quite the achievement for someone who relishes a challenge now.

The same has now emerged as a pattern on Phoenix as well, now that the server has matured. Three months after PX was launched, 23 Fury guilds and 25 Light guilds had all figured in their respective top 6s. Over the next five months, only 9 Fury and 16 Light guilds have added their names to the list. There's no real wonder to this, it simply shows how the guilds are settling in and the lines have become more firmly drawn since the start of the server. It is still interesting to see that PX Light seems less cohesive than PX Fury, given the higher number of guilds coming and going in the ranks.

A couple of final points to note are:

1: that PX Fury, after months of mostly seeing only 21 to 24 guilds ranking, now seem to have close to 30 ranking guilds on a semi-regular basis. Not that it takes an awful lot to achieve a rank when not all the 30 spots are taken, but it still requires that you actually do it.

2: that the score required to make it into the top 30 on Merged Light and Fury has been quite stable for the past months, but that the number of guilds hitting 60,000+ is slowly increasing. To get into the top 20 on Merged Light now, a guild will need a score that would have seen them as comfortable winners on some of the old servers...

Back to the regular program:

New guild GRB records in the top 6 (note, guilds that are fresh to the ranks might have scored higher before, but not ranked in the top 6), old records from Lailah, Teos, Etain and Gaia carried over:

68185 Absolute Zero - Merged UoF
73152 sovereignty - Merged AoL
71759 Celestial Legion - Merged AoL
53929 ShadowDemon Society - PX AoL
49244 The Demigods Of Olympia - PX AoL
48494 Keepers of the Faith - PX AoL
27780 Defiance - PX AoL
27471 BG_GUARDS - PX AoL

New guild rank records in the top 6 (records from Lailah, Teos, Etain and Gaia carried over):

1st: ShadowDemon Society - PX AoL
5th: Defiance - PX AoL

Well obviously there is more to grb than a bunch of high level ubers showing up and mob bashing.
The bonus was designed to give guilds a chance through tactics, co-ordination, and getting good kill rates with lower level toons.

i couldnt care less about GRB (witch can be seen in my GRB attendence lol), but like to know all the rules of games i play, so just wanna know this: where did you get this info that bonus works like this? And how exactly are tactics,co-ordination and good kill rates with low lvl counted in end bonus? some formula pls, couse it must have some formula, game cant do random math.... And why GMs/Nexon cant say anything about game rules? exept when they need to ban us... (this last question is for GMs only, if they have decency to give any answer and we all know they read forums....)

1 - Please keep discussions around GRB to separate threads, this thread is meant to be a library of sorts, not a discussion thread.

2 - The rules of the game are found here, here and here, although I assume you actually mean game mechanisms and not game rules. As a general rule of thumb, Aeria do not have much insight into the specifics of the games they host, as they are not allowed to mess around with the coding. That said, it was mentioned by a GM in a thread just last week that they have sent Nexon a request to get information on how the GRB bonus system works. Hopefully they will get an answer to this in due time.
