“Survival Must Be Earned”

‘Romeo and Juliet’ in the Klingon Experience

KDF Any Level

ST-HFRZNLYYO

by Malize

yInlu’taH ‘e’ bajnISlu’
(ye-eye-nLu tach-e ba-jn-eye-sLu)

Survival Must Be Earned — This is an ancient Klingon axiom that has lost some of its meaning during the time of the Federation Alliance. But not in areas of the Empire far away from the more cosmopolitan Qo’Nos, like the ancient colony world of AnSa’ra.

Here the ancient households had withdrawn during the time of the Alliance, but when Gowron called for war, the warriors of AnSa’ra answered and returned to their world with great honors and Cardassian riches.

Now the old warrior leader, Klasq, hero of every campaign of the Cardassian and Dominion Wars has died, suddenly in his sleep. The houses of AnSa’ra are eyeing each other warily while waiting for Klasq’s son, Kreg, to return from the front and take control of his house.

What they don’t know is you’ll be coming with him to the Kahless Expanse in the Omega Leonis Sector Block.

Foundry Spotlight Missions Index

 

Link to the forum post

Some recent experiences got me thinking about “Drive-by’s” …those pernicious “1” votes that people get on their missions. Now it must be said that “Drive-by” ratings are like blackholes, every sector has at least one, and while they all stink…they happen nonetheless, or as they say on Vulcan, “You can please some of the people some of the time, but not all the people all the time.”

Plus some people are just obnoxious Tellarites.

Anyway, this brought me to examine the 1 votes of the Spotlight and Top 32 missions to determine what mission creators should reasonably expect from the dreaded “Drive-by” ratings.

Below I’ll use the following nomenclature:
“O” = Number of One (1) votes for a mission
“P” = Number of Plays for a mission (minimum of 10)
“OP” = Ratio of O per P, a higher OP is better than a low OP.

First, the FED side.

FED Spotlight Missions had an average O of 236 over an average of 9951 P, for an OP of 42.
The Top 32 FED Missions had an average O of 18 over an average of 1068 P, for an OP of 59.
The combined averages were O/P/OP 127/5510/43.

The mean OP for Spotlight missions was 43 with a standard deviation of 16.
The mean OP for Top32 missions was 48 with a standard deviation of 25.

If the scores are normally distributed, approx. 68% of the population of missions will fall within 1 standard deviation of the mean, and 95% of the population within 2 standard deviations.

This allows us to class the OP ratings of the two categories of FED missions (Top32/Spotlight…they cannot be evaluated directly because they are effectively to different samples, the Spotlight missions obviously receiving far more “attention” per mission)

For non-spotlight FED missions, if your mission has an OP within the bounds of 23 to 73, you are receiving a normal amount of Drive-By ratings. If you are below 23 you are receiving a higher than normal amount and if your OP lands between 74 and 98 you are doing well above average. If you are above 98 you can safely consider your mission a resounding success with the player base.

By comparison, FED Spotlight missions are clearly held to a higher standard by the player base. The lower end of average is fairly equitable with non-spotlight missions, but the upper band is significantly lower, for a range of 27 to 59. Additionally, the data is tight enough that a “well below average” band comes into existence with OP’s of 11 or lower. The well above average band for Spotlight missions sits between 59 and 75, but interestingly enough none of the existing Spotlight missions falls within the outer most “excellent” band above 75.

You can really see how much harsher the upper band is if you find the differences between the Top32 and Spotlight missions for each band:

Top32-Spotlight = Differences
98-75 = 23 points
73-59 = 14 points
48-43 = 5 points
23-27 = 4 points
0-11 = 11 points

These differences will become more interesting as we move on to the Klingon side of the missions.
