Hey. I know this can be tricky and is a lot of work to do but something went wrong, didn't it? I asked for purple shards first of all and tickets but got none. What's the matter?

Per the loot distribution methods post,

Loot is prioritized according to type.

Each piece of loot subtracts a given amount of points. Since, you had around 90 priority, that was enough to win the bids for two epic items... which subtracted 40 points from your score.

A few of the players only requested tickets and shards, and had a very high priority remaining when I got to the tickets/shards category... so, it was awarded to them.

All of the math is also located in the spreadsheet

Can we change this next time? I understand the system now but it fucked my picks up. I would prefer to distribute in the order of the wishlist of the currently highest ranked people instead of according to the rarity of the items

It is more complicated, but really need to give people the pieces they prioritize (assuming they have the top points).

The issue is, how to deal with recursion.

An easy method, would be to allow players to specify priority with items, and only allow a single priority 1, a single 2, etc.

That method would be pretty easy to manage, but, would just slightly complicate how players request items.

Another downside-

If ANYBODY (A player with the low score of 1) requests say... an epic item as priority 1, while you had priority 2 specified, they would receive the item over you.

The issue, would be how to fairly manage the distributions. Although, the above scenario might actually work pretty good. Tracy was wanting to make the loot work more along the lines of a single piece per person.
