Ah never knew there were 2 types of dkp as the bidding version is the one my clan uses. How does decay work?
There are several types of dkp systems. Decay is just a feature to combat points inflation.
These are the more popular/common ones:
1, Traditional - you earn points by raiding. you pay points for gear with fixed prices
2. Bidding - you earn points by raiding, you bid on gear using your points. prices vary of course.
3. Zero sum dkp - members earn points based on amount of points spent on gear for a raid
4. Suicide Kings - round robin system, top player go to bottom of list after receiving an item
5. Priority system aka EP/GP - player priority for an item is measured based on activity and amount of gear already taken
Avalon uses #5, i think it addresses a lot of issues inherent in the other systems such as collusion, especially in bidding type systems.
There are two types of people in this world: Those who crave closure
