Oh Wise One
Ideally I would LOVE for FS members to contribute to a pool of badges that can be applied to a node by anyone in the FS as needed.
I do not think its right to be able to play the game while not being in the game. sorry.
Even if maybe that "pool" is only in use for the pit, since it moves so fast
I would go for this if at the point you finish the third map, all fellowship members excess badges go into the pool. It is a bonus round, though it can determine winners. Badges wouldn't go to waste that way.
I realize that those statements sound contradictory, but really they are not. You should have to be present for mandatory play. Bonuses are just that, bonuses.
