Slut Face-Off Ticket Auctions

The “Why” Behind The New Slut Face-Off Ticket Auctions

As popular as the Slut Face-Off Tournaments are, everyone wants a spot. The simple fact of the matter though is that everyone can’t have one—obviously—due to the small number of tickets and the large number of ticket-coveters.

This “shortage” of tickets and “surplus” of ticket-coveters members has undoubtedly been responsible for much disappointment. And to be fair, we get it…

To be sure, in the past 8 weeks we’ve received a lot of suggestions on things some users think we should perhaps consider doing differently. These suggestions usually fall into one of the following categories:

 

Category 1: increase the number of entry tickets available per tournament by either creating more tournaments per week or expanding the contestant pool in the tournaments.

Category 2: make it harder to get an entry ticket by increasing the amount of kudos required to purchase an entry ticket.

Category 3: make it easier to get an entry ticket by decreasing the amount of kudos required to purchase an entry ticket.

 

Without going into any long-winded explanations, here are the simple reasons why solutions which fall into any of the three categories above won’t work:

Category 1 solutions require more manpower/resources, and we don’t have the necessary manpower required to implement solutions at this level yet. One day we will. Until then, bear with us. We’re doing the best we can 🙂

Category 2 solutions exclude those who don’t have the ability to earn tons of kudos. And while we aren’t socialist and in no way support affirmative action solutions for the kudos-challenged members among you, we also don’t want to create an environment where only the upper echelon of posters can earn rewards. We’re trying to balance things as best we can, with a slight favor towards those upper echelon posters (as you’ll see more in a minute).

Category 3 solutions would make any kind of “competitive” element to actually earn/win an entry ticket obsolete, and well…where’s the fun in that? We set the entry ticket redemption price at a level that’s attainable for many, but not too easily attainable. Again, we’re not socialists, and anyone who is, to you we say…go rethink life 😉 The entry ticket redemption price is based on analysis of kudos distributions for that given week.

All that said, since we’re always looking to improve what we do, we’ve decided to hold two live auctions per week where you can “bid” with your kudos to purchase an entry ticket. Our rationale for doing this is to give those who have earned a lot more kudos more of a chance to use those kudos to get an entry spot. And since we’re only doing this with two out of the eight available weekly entry tickets, it still means the rest of everyone else has just as much (or little) of a chance of getting a ticket.

As I said before, fair with a slight favor to the top kudos holders among you.

Now for the details…

 

How Will The Auctions Work?

At the time of auction, a staff member will announce that the bidding will now start for one Slut Face-Off entry ticket. Bidding will start at 25 kudos. Anyone can bid for a ticket by simply saying what they want their bid to be, just like at a real auction. Here are a few things to note:

  • You cannot bid on credit. Please make sure you actually have the amount of spendable kudos you want to bid. To check your kudos, type /kudos into the chat and Cuckbot will reply to you and only you with the amount of spendable kudos available to you. 
  • Bids more than 100 kudos than the current bid will not be accepted/entertained. In other words, if the current bid is 100 kudos, you can’t come in and say 300. Anything more than 100 kudos above the current ask will be ignored.
  • All sales are final and non-transferable. This means that you can’t win your ticket and gift it to someone else. Perhaps we will change this in the future if enough people demand it, but right now, it’s not allowable.
  • As a corollary of the above, if you don’t have your own woman to enter into the contest, don’t make a bid.
  • If you wind up winning and you don’t have enough spendable kudos to cover your winning bid, your entire kudos from day one will be nuked and reset to zero. We get mistakes and reading errors happen, but seriously…it’s not that hard to read a number, so just pay special attention to how many kudos you have. See the GIF above.
  • Sorry but we can’t accept future bids or bids by proxy. This would make things way too complicated and hairy. If you need a detailed explanation on why/how, let me know and I’d be glad to explain.

Any questions, please let us know!
