One of the current design constraints of the Kukui Cup is that the players associated with each team in a challenge must be specified in advance of a challenge. Thus, as the challenge runs, it is possible to know exactly what percentage of each team’s players are actively playing the game (in the sense that they have logged in at least once).
The Participation Game is designed to incentivize active players on a team to recruit other members of their team to login and try the game. It does this by providing extra points to all active players on a team when the percentage participation by that team reaches certain thresholds (currently 50%, 75%, and 100%).
The current percentage participation by a player’s team is shown in a scoreboard when this game is enabled (as shown in the figure below) and players receive an in-game notification whenever they reach a threshold participation where points are awarded.
To configure the participation game, click on the “Participation Settings” link in the Game Admin widget. You will see the overview of the participation settings. Clicking on the link will bring you to a page to change the settings:
You can change the points to award for each participation percentage. Currently, the percentages (50, 75, and 100%) are hardwired into the system.
