I've cooked up a few king-of-the-hill challenges, mostly in the sandbox, and a few of them are asymmetric in nature.
They're not really cops-and-robbers because it's not really about cracking a code, nor is it a meta-challenge that you might expect from the more common idea of Cops and Robbers (normally, these target a specific submission and crack it by a certain deadline). The roles in this kind of KotH are also distinctly different and require completely different strategies and code.
- Liars and Guessers - Liars and Guessers have different goals and play a different role in the game
- Red vs. Blue - Each team has slightly different movement options.
- Sandbox: The Ever-Changing Labyrinth - Maze masters and Adventurers have completely different roles
I see a few courses of action here:
A new tag: asymmetric
- Represents a distinctly different idea from what CnR challenges most frequently represent, which usually require one role to go head-to-head with a specific submission from the other role
- Creates a new tag that may potentially be confused with cops-and-robbers
- There are not very many challenges of this nature
- Probably only makes sense when paired with king-of-the-hill and might be confusing in other contexts.
Use cops-and-robbers for this purpose
... And tag all currently untagged challenges accordingly
- Re-uses an existing tag
- This would exclude any challenges with cooperative but asymmetric roles, though no challenges of this nature exist, to my knowledge.
- The culture and typical usage of this tag would create an alternate meaning for this tag that only applies when paired with KotH
Remove the cops-and-robbers tag from the two challenges also tagged king-of-the-hill
These two tags should be mutually exclusive. Some KotHs simply have multiple roles.
- No new tag
- No overloading of an existing tag with a strong culture of a specific meaning that isn't compatible in an immediately obvious way.
- No way to distinguish KotHs with multiple asymmetric roles.
