The Totem Pole Season 2

Author Brant    Category All, Simulator Updates     Tags

The Totem Pole season 2 simulator has been released with today’s premiere. This contains the new format, alliances, updated logic, and more display options.

Try it out today! As new episodes air, more features will be released including Interactive simulation: Totem Pole Season 2 Template

You can watch the Season 2 Premiere on YouTube.

This is intended to be a very logical simulator using some of the best features from the existing simulators, so please leave feedback if you see any issues or have any suggestions for improvement. Thank you.

Update: With Episode 2 of season 2 releasing today, you can now change the Relationships and Alliances each round as you progress through the simulation. Many bugs and logic improvements were also added:

– Displays number of cards chosen each round on the Defender page
– Saves cumulative attributes so that the individual threat targets are more consistent throughout a simulation
– Links the individual and alliance targets to the threats more regularly
– For decisions near the end of the game like the final placement, the algorithm will now emphasizes taking out threats
– Fixed a few logic clauses with Switch decisions that were making illogical swaps
– Added best social game, best strategic game, most loyal game, and best overall challenge performer to the jury speeches
– Added support for multiple alliance events per round
– An alliance can now change its target last minute and still all vote together, without negatively impacting the alliance in future rounds. This will be noted on the vote page.

Update: With Episode 3 of season 2 releasing today, a new vote display was added to more accurately reflect the one on the show this season.

Update: With Episode 4 of season 2 releasing today, a social skills attribute has been added to the simulator. This affects how relationships are built throughout a season.

    Can we please get cast photos for Drag Race Thailand seasons 1 and 2. And Rupaul’s Drag Race UK

    • Brant [Admin] September 15, 2019 at 11:12 pm

      Most likely, but not in the immediate future, sorry. Cast photos for new shows take longer to add than existing shows due to changes needed on the .net server.

    Would it be possible for us to adjust the size of the jury?

    • Brant [Admin] September 22, 2019 at 3:11 pm

      I’ll get back to you on this question.

    Love this simulator! A huge improvement – probably my favorite formatted simulator!

    I LOVED the addition of the “most disconnected, most strategic threat,” etc. before voting!

    Also I loved how clearly laid out the rules of elimination were. I think this updated format would be perfect for the new big brother simulators because I love the ever-changing alliances and the layout of the decisions / storytelling.

    The only thing I would suggest is that on the screen where you view the votes, I wish there was an animation to see the votes and they weren’t just displaying… just because the Switch stuff is easy to miss at the top since there is already info below it… great other than that!!

      Thanks for the feedback. The Vote and The Votes pages will likely be changed around soon to more accurately reflect the format of the episodes.

    I love this simulator! I just wish that maybe you can add a social attribute?

    • Brant [Admin] September 22, 2019 at 3:10 pm

      Thanks for the feedback. This is under high consideration, just because ‘social game’ is now a part of the simulator, and that’s largely dependent upon relationships. Social could help decide these relationships.

    Do you think it would be possible to have an option for us to choose which twists happen each round?

      omg, i’m so sorry, I didn’t mean to do that, please forgive me.

  • Jayy [Guest] October 27, 2019 at 4:02 pm

    With this most recent update there is now a bug (for cast with an odd number of people) that is showing everyone who isn’t in the top two as “the bottom five” (ignore the last comment under the bb21)

  • JayPotterims [Guest] November 7, 2019 at 1:19 pm

    Hey Brant! I’m just in LOOOOOVE of this simulator! Only issue… when will interactive and saving be available???? I can’t wait!
