Points are accumulated for things you do on the board.  The exact formulas are kept secret but from some astutue observations, we have figured this much:

  • 10 points for signing up
  • 5 points for your first post in a forum
  • 5 points for starting your first thread in a forum
  • 1 point per friends added
  • ? points for games - dosn't seem to be a 1:1 ratio because as you add single games, it doesn't go up.  So I am not sure if you get a point for every 5 or so games, or if your initial games give some point and added ones don't.  I haven't figured this one out yet.

The points, so far, are just for monthly raffles being hosted by FFG.  They are supposed to take place on the last Friday of every month.  There are 4 levels depending on how many points you have accumulated.

 

  • Level 01 Raffle: for Players with more than 25 Points.
  • Level 02 Raffle: for Players with more than 200 Points.
  • Level 03 Raffle: for Players with more than 500 Points.
  • Level 04 Raffle: for Players with more than 1000 Points.
  •  

    FFG seems to be monitoring those abusing the system.  Most peopel realized quickly that you could post a generic thread in each of the games and quickly build up points.  So the forums were flooded with a bunch of "Is this game good?" and "How long does this game take?" post.  Those points were taken away by those individuals the best I can tell.  There still seems to be an abuse with the friend gimick.

    I can easily have 122, if you know what I mean. 

    All of my friends I have collected through the 3 main forums I visit on here: Android, BL, and AH..  Plus I have lots of friends that carried over from th DOW BattleLore forums to here, not to mention all my BGG buddies.  I think my number is legit.

    Someone who has contributed barely anything and has 300+, with the top most being 500+ friends is getting a bit riduclous.  i think they are gaming the system more than trying to establish a legit community.  I'll get off the soap box now.

  • Level 04 Raffle: for Players with more than 1000 Points.

     

    What does this mean?

  • The different levels?  Or what the prizes is?

    The levels mean there are 4 raffles each month.  If you have that many points, you are included in the raffle.  I assume if you have more than 1000+ you would also be included in the 3 "smaller" raffles, but I am not sure.

    As to what each level represents in prizes, I do not know.  I was notified that I won December raffle.  Since there are only 3 of us with 500+ points, I assume I won the Level 3 raffle.  No one has gotten to level 4 yet.

    More info is here: http://new.fantasyfl...ad_ventajas.asp

    Points = Prizes
    Get Points to participate in raffles and special promotions.

    Participating in the Community and interacting with it is rewarded with Points, following our top secret scale (don’t bother asking, it’ll be kept secret). The Points are used to reach different levels of monthly raffles, which will let you get special promotions available only to Community Players, of all of our games, from the smallest to the largest. The more Points you have, the more levels of raffle you can reach, and the larger the games that will be available to you.

     

    • Level 01 Raffle: for Players with more than 25 Points.
    • Level 02 Raffle: for Players with more than 200 Points.
    • Level 03 Raffle: for Players with more than 500 Points.
    • Level 04 Raffle: for Players with more than 1000 Points.

     

    Prizes and raffle winners will be made public on the last Friday of each month in the News section and the Forums (you can read the rules here on the Help page).

    Sure.  Everyon'es name goes into a hat and a name is drawn.  I am not sure what the prizes are but would assume they get "better" with each level.  I was notified that I won a December raffle and I am assuming it was the level 3 prize.  But my prize has not arrived so I have no idea what to expect.

    Sounds great. In the meantime I have also read on the forum that one can actually win a game! I would like to win Android, Tannhäuser or Conan (when it arrives).

    How `bout you other guys?
