Many people have been asking lately about how the “algorithm” on casting games work. Basically many of them don’t understand why some active people are sometimes on the block.
As you know there are 2 evictions each “game day”, one selected from the block and another one from the less active players. Being on the block has nothing to do with activity initially, although it’s something checked by the algorithm. The algorithm to select the 3 nominated participants is based on votes received, so if you’re not active it’s obvious your final counter will be zero. If nobody votes negative then the less “active” people will be on the block, but in case somebody votes negative things start to change on how algorithm selects the nominees. The algorithm takes into account how many of the participants have vote you positively or negatively, as well as the total number of votes to your messages. To be out of the block is good to have lots of positive votes but it’s much more important the number of participants that at least voted positive for my messages (even if they only voted once).
As an example: if I get a daily total of +1000 points from 6 participants but other 4 participants voted negative my messages (-4) I will rank worst that a participant with only a total +20 points but having those votes comming from all participants. If at the end few people negged some of my messages I will rank even worst than a non active.
It’s better to watch out for who is negging you rather than getting lots of positive votes for the same few people. Negg inactive people that sends a few messages per day… (they are a threat)
