Your spirit animal picks you based on the kinds of rules that you choose. Your placement into a bracket is based on a combination of how many rules you chose, and how difficult they are for you.
Together, you get placed onto a team that has people who have picked similar kinds of goals as you, and of about the same total level of total difficulty.
I want the game to have a bit of a competitive feel. Both with your own sense of competition (beating your own scores) and a sense of being on a team with others (encouraging and being encouraged by others).
The teams will be lopsided a bit, but that’s okay. The sorting mechanism is still new, and it will take a while to figure out how to make the teams and brackets seem “even” with each other.
Don’t worry about it too much for now, it’s just a bit of fun. Perhaps slowly, over a period of months, the mysteries of animals and colors will become more clear to us all.
