BattleShip 36 Tasmania, Australia 01-Jun-21 2.25 172.25 Derwent Valley (M) - dragonZone

As can be seen in the above list, I have been awarded 3 different values for my Cacher dzPoints (172.25, 131.75 and 91.25) on the same Cache dz points of 2.25
Generally, all these finds would be rewarded with the same Cacher dzPoint of 172.25
Having rung around friends, their Cacher dzPoints are consistent with each Cache dz points and do not vary; they get the same Cacher Points for the same valued Cache dzpoints ie if they get 172.25 points for a 2.25 valued find all their finds on that value are the same
And so it is with the cacher who found the same caches as me on the 1 Jun 2021
I am wondering if any other cacher is having a reduction of their finds points?
I am also wondering why it is happening on my cache finds but not on other cacher's finds?
Is it a glich in the system?
Any help would be appreciated - Thanks OldSaint

I don't see that. Assuming you are on this page ? https://geocaching.com.au/my/dragonzone/points/cache/ I see the following.

Can you please let me know what page you are on (I am only trying to guess where you are in the site).
Can you please take a screenshot and mail it to caughtwork@gmail.com if you still see the problem as I cannot replicate it.

Gee, my son is a good shot (maybe it's a good thing I left the navy when I did!), we found 6 trigs today, and the tinny bugger made the 6 shots just now, and landed all 6 on the carrier.... I'll keep him on the guns for future shots.... :)

Yesterday, I hid 10 small caches and found 14 GeoArt caches
That should have given me 24 shots in the Battleship Game
I was only awarded 22 shots (which have not been fired yet)
I am wondering if anyone else has had this happen?
Or is it a glitch in the computer system?

My hides were:
All moveables and small in size; and there were ten of those (10 Shots)
Zoo - Antelope Kingston, Tasmania, Australia
Zoo - Camel Kingston, Tasmania, Australia
Zoo - Elephant Kingston, Tasmania, Australia
Zoo - Hippo Kingston, Tasmania, Australia
Zoo - Lion Kingston, Tasmania, Australia
Zoo - Panda Kingston, Tasmania, Australia
Zoo - Rhino Kingston, Tasmania, Australia
Zoo - Zebra Kingston, Tasmania, Australia
Zoo Kingston, Tasmania, Australia
Battle Ship Flyer Kingston, Tasmania, Australia
The link is: https://geocaching.com.au/cacher/OldSaint/hides/

My finds were:
All GeoArt caches;
GA21651 19-Jun-21 Blockage - Wolf Geilston Bay, Tasmania, Australia
GA21668 19-Jun-21 Blockage - Pig or Pear Geilston Bay, Tasmania, Australia

Can an administrator or anyone else help me understand why please?

Hi OldSaint
I notice two of the hides are listed as "other" and not small, regular or large as stated in hide rules. Maybe that could be the issue?

It's best if you can check any query about accuracy against the rules prior to posting. Thanks.

Hi All and the administrators
Thank you all for your help
The issue was caused by myself not changing the size of two caches that I did not pick up
Some very kind people helped me out with this issue and them kindly
Issue has now been resolved in the affirmative thanks to that help
Cheers OldSaint

Bah! We found 10 GA caches today - and my trusty sidekick, renown for taking out the carrier with sequential shots, splashed all 10 shots harmlessly in the drink! :(

Battleship is drawing to a close. I just want to say thanks to the organisers for setting up. We have had fun covering lots of kms finding ammunition and finding spots for hiding new caches and then trying to hit something. Thank you.

A big shout out and thank you to all the organisers who developed the BS game.

IMO the BS game was the best by far and certainly generated heaps of interest....also quite addictive.
A lot of exc caches were placed and found with geocachers traipsing from one end of the state to the other.

Two of the best improvements over previous games was the extra length of the game and leaving out moveables from the finds.

Many thanks again to the faeries who made their own personal time available to develop the BS game for the rest of us to enjoy...cheers ST.

Thanks so much game admins for the battleships game. I really enjoyed that, especially how there was a lot of chance involved in it.

Congrats to the ones who managed to get so many points and ALMOST total annihilation. Congrats also to the pathtag winners. Would have been an awesome little trinket to take away with the experience.

I enjoyed the game. I too enjoyed the element of chance. We did reach a point where there just weren't enough suitable caches available within reach, but I assume that most players would have had a similar issue.

I like the sense of belonging that I get when we all join in on a game. Unfortunately, I can't seem to get my head around the intricacies of the dragonzone thing, so I enjoy the intermittent games even more.

I was a little disappointed to notice several people putting out caches without much thought and/or effort. Having said that, I was willing to find some of those caches, even though they didn't count in the game, so it wasn't a major issue.
