SCORING ADJUSTMENT

Effective today, to make play more fun and competitive for all, we’ve adjusted the scoring system for price predictions for Eager Zebra’s PTP (Pick The Price) game.  In short, the higher the winning price for the auction, the more points you’ll score on your price prediction—scaling up to a maximum of 500 points.

For example, pick the exact winning price on an auction that ends at $2.00 or less and you’ll score 300 points. For each cent you’re off on your prediction (either over OR under), subtract 3 points (maximum 300).  Here’s an example:

  • Winning price is $2.00.  You predicted $2.00.  You score 300 points.
  • Winning price is $2.00.  You predicted $1.90.  You score 270 points.
  • Winning price is $2.00.  You predicted $2.50.  You score 150 points.
  • Winning price is $2.00.  You predicted $1.05.  You score 15 points.
  • Winning price is $2.00.  You predicted $1.00.  Zero points scored.

OR, here’s an example for an auction that ended at $8.00 (an auction with a winning price of more than $7.00 makes each cent worth the maximum of five points):

  • Winning price is $8.00.  You predicted $8.00.  You score 500 points.
  • Winning price is $8.00.  You predicted $7.90.  You score 450 points.
  • Winning price is $8.00.  You predicted $8.50.  You score 250 points.
  • Winning price is $8.00.  You predicted $7.05.  You score 25 points.
  • Winning price is $8.00.  You predicted $7.00.  Zero points scored.

NEW BADGE ON THE WAY

We’re also rolling out a new badge for a PERFECT SCORE in PTP.  A perfect score requires hitting the price prediction exactly AND scoring the maximum number of points for all the available Sidekicks.  Look for this badge to appear in the next 10 days, awarded retroactively, to all players who’ve achieved a perfect score from today forward.

Badge Quest goes Rewardical!

badge_questAs mentioned in our big Rewardical announcement on October 31st, we plan to incorporate Rewardical tokens in numerous places.  Today, we’re pleased to announce that, effective immediately, our popular Badge Quest program is now awarding Rewardicals as its exclusive prize!  Following are the new rules and prizes.


There are FIVE levels in Badge Quest:

LEVEL ONE (Rising Star)
Upon earning 12 badges, you’ll advance to the first level in Badge Quest…Rising Star.  As a Rising Star, you’ll receive:

  • 150 Rewardicals
  • 1 Entry in the month’s “Badge Bounty” drawing (see details below)

You’ll also receive the Badge Quest Rising Star badge.  Plus, next to your rank badge at the top of the Affiliate Center, you’ll also now sport one trophy icon to reflect your level one status in Badge Quest.

LEVEL TWO (Pro)
Upon earning 30 badges, you’ll advance to the second level…Badge Quest Pro.  As a Pro, you’ll also automatically receive:

  • 500 Rewardicals
  • 2 Entries in the month’s “Badge Bounty”drawing (see details below)

You’ll also receive the Badge Quest Pro badge.  Plus, next to your rank badge at the top of the Affiliate Center, you’ll also now sport two trophy icons to reflect your level two status in Badge Quest.

LEVEL THREE (Master)
Upon earning 40 badges, you’ll advance to the third level…Badge Quest Master.  As a Master, you’ll also automatically receive these prizes:

  • 1000 Rewardicals
  • 3 Entries in the month’s “Badge Bounty”drawing (see details below)

You’ll also receive the Badge Quest Master badge.  Plus, next to your rank badge at the top of the Affiliate Center, you’ll also now sport three trophy icons to reflect your level three status in Badge Quest.

LEVEL FOUR (Grand Master)
Level four, Grand Master, is the first of two elite levels in Badge Quest.  To attain the Grand Master level in Badge Quest, it’s no longer about the quantity of badges you have.  Instead, qualification is now based on the point values we’ve assigned to each badge (the harder the badge is to attain, the more points it is worth).  If the total points value of your collected badges puts you in the top 200 of all players, congratulations, you’re a Badge Quest Grand Master!

TIP: Check your BADGES tab to determine your current position on the Badge Quest leaderboard.

As a Grand Master, you also qualify for MONTHLY prizes!  Yes, every month that you’re a Grand Master, you’ll automatically receive:

  • 2000 Rewardicals
  • 4 Entries in the month’s “Badge Bounty”drawing (see details below)

You’ll also receive the Badge Quest Grand Master badge.  Plus, next to your rank badge at the top of the Affiliate Center, you’ll also now sport four trophy icons to reflect your elite, level four status in Badge Quest.

LEVEL FIVE (Grand Master Elite)
Level five in Badge Quest is Grand Master Elite.  To attain this highest level in Badge Quest, the total point value of your collected badges must put you in the top 20 of all players.

TIP: Check your BADGES tab to determine your current position on the Badge Quest leaderboard.

As a Grand Master Elite, you also qualify for MONTHLY prizes!  Every month that you’re a Grand Master Elite, you’ll automatically receive:

  • 5000 Rewardicals
  • 5 Entries in the month’s “Badge Bounty”drawing (see details below)

You’ll also receive the Badge Quest Grand Master Elite badge.  Plus, next to your rank badge at the top of the Affiliate Center, you’ll also now sport five trophy icons to reflect your elite, top level status in Badge Quest.

NOTE: PRIZES SUBJECT TO CHANGE


BADGE QUEST BOUNTY

The monthly bounty drawing is one of the most exciting parts of the new Badge Quest game.  It now works like this:

Each month, for every* new badge earned by all SFI affiliates–companywide–SFI will put two Rewardicals** into the Bounty pot (the current pot amount will be displayed on your WIN IT tab), with a guaranteed minimum of 100,000 Rewardicals.

At the end of the month, we will draw 40 winners, who will each receive an equal share of the bounty pot.

*Excludes SFI rank badge and TC member badge–which are awarded automatically to all affiliates.
**SFI reserves the right to adjust the ratio of Rewardicals per badges earned.


One more change…

We’ve determined that having a point value for the actual Badge Quest badges (Rising Star badge, Pro badge, Master badge, Grand Master badge, and Grand Master Elite badge)  create an awkward “catch-22” issue for our players in regards to their level in certain instances.  Therefore, so as to provide an even playing field for all, these badges will no longer have points assigned to them.
