Okay, the secret system...

Each icon was placed into one of five groups. Lets call them A, B, C, D, E (as that is what I called them ;))

Now then, when a battle took place, a random number (between 0 and 1) was generated in ExCel, to see if the attacking icon overcame the defending icon. If the icons were the same group, the number needed to be 0.5 or higher. However, if they were a different group, then I used a comparison table.

For example:
cake v champagne (A v A) - cake would need to score 0.5 to win.
cake v heart (A v B) - cake would need 0.75 to win.
cake v horse (A v C) - cake would always lose.
cake v kingkong (A v D) - cake would always win.
cake v kiss (A v E) - cake would need 0.25 to win.

For a winning attack, the victor would gain 2 HP, and 1 'secret' point.
For a winning defence, the victor would gain 1 HP, and 3 'secret' points.
For a losing attack, the loser would lose 2 HP and 2 'secret' points.
For a losing defence, the loser would lose 3 HP and 2 'secret' points.

All icons started with 5 'secret' points.
Every time this number reached 10 or higher, it was reset to 5 and the icon gained 10 HP.
Every time this number reached 0 or lower, it was reset to 5 and the icon lost 10 HP.

And that is all.

The only advantage I had in the game was (a) knowing how battles could play out, and (b) always being able to play with an up to date set of lives. The fact that I heart all the top 4 icons is just luck. And perhaps people liking the same icons as me ;)

All hail the winning chameleon!

(And once again, thanks go to becca7 for the design of such a great icon!)

lol BaronessBL, I'm glad it's not just me that didn't think the scoring system was straightforward! In fact I'm not sure I understand it after the explanation :-)

I understood it up to "For a winning attack, the victor would gain 2 HP, and 1 'secret' point." and everything thereafter. I thought it was dice based as well. This Excel spreadsheet must be a thing of wonder!

I'm glad my creation the chameleon got to triumph in one of these contests at last. :)

HP - hit-points... It's all pretty simple, really. The real magic in the spreadsheet was how it automagically generated the header at the top...

And the random function? Simply "=rand()" in an ExCel cel. It generates a real number bounded by 0 and 1...

Got something to say?

Rules:
1. You (yes, you) may take a turn twice a day. Once when the clock says AM, once when the clock says PM.
2. A turn consists of a Hurt, a Heal, and a fight between icons.
3. Hurts remove 20 hit points. Heals restore 10 hit points. Fights yield random results. The number of hit points an icon has is up there ^.
4. The Icons are grouped into types. Some types are stronger against others.
5. No bullying! You can only hurt/heal an icon two times in a row.
6. I will update as often as I can, sometimes running or alcohol gets in the way though!

Example turn: Hurt chameleon, Heal kingkong, kingkong v chameleon
