Talk:Ornament Mouse

Preferred bait

I caught this mouse using Brie. Pus 03:42, 4 December 2009 (UTC)

I caught 4 within 100 hunts while using Swiss and PooFlinger suggests that Brie is the best so far regarding their statistics.
I think it's time to take the preferred bait out. ____m.
Pooflinger's statistics are estimates based on voluntary player hunt samples. The problem with that is there is no control over who contributes and in what manner, and using which time period, so there's no guarantee that the figures are correct. I'm not agreeable with removing what a developer added based on short-term player data. I think the discrepancy probably arose because there's been adjustments to the availability of each type of mice. Additionally, each time a type of mouse is more attracted to a cheese, it eats into the percentage attracted of other types of mice, and since Standard Cheese attracts Ornament mice but not some of the other Christmas event mice, the numbers probably skew towards Brie being the better cheese for Ornament. Before making any adjustments I think it's best to discuss with Dave Vanderburg first. -- Grexx 03:38, 13 December 2009 (UTC)
Sorry, Grexx! You're absolutely right. I totally missed that edit by Dev Dave. My bad.
But then we should include the possibility to attract the mouse with regular cheese(s), don't you think?... ____m. 12:57, 13 December 2009 (UTC)
Yup agree that it would be helpful to include an expanded writeup to the preferred cheese section. It would help clarify if it is really true. I don't have the time to look through any of the information so I'm assuming that you know what you are talking about lol. Also if this is the case, I wonder if it would be a better idea to expand the hunting strategy section under Festive Comet instead, and discuss a bit more on the overall benefits and drawbacks to using the various cheeses, and leave the mouse article itself alone. -- Grexx 14:45, 13 December 2009 (UTC)
I expanded the writeup in the hunting strategy section of Festive Comet and hope it meets your expectations... LOL ...Will include a reference to this here in the preferred bait section now. ____m. 15:21, 13 December 2009 (UTC)
