Head Hunters scoring system

The Head Hunters gamemode gives your team more points the more gems you bring to your base, giving great reward to great risk. Still, the escalation of points at higher numbers of gems can feel a little extreme sometimes. Here are some alternate proposals for how many points each number of gems (up through 20 gems) could be worth for your team; which of these most appeals to you as a player?

Code:
Gems	nth	lg	lg2	^
1	1	0	0	1
2	3	1	2	2
3	6	3	4	5
4	10	5	8	8
5	15	8	11	11
6	21	10	15	14
7	28	13	19	18
8	36	16	24	22
9	45	19	28	27
10	55	23	33	31
11	66	26	38	36
12	78	29	43	41
13	91	33	48	46
14	105	36	53	52
15	120	40	58	58
16	136	44	64	64
17	153	48	69	70
18	171	52	75	76
19	190	55	80	82
20	210	59	86	89
nth - bringing n gems scores the nth triangular number, or n * (n+1) / 2 (this is the current system)
lg - bringing n gems scores n log n
lg2 - bringing n gems scores n log2 n
^ - bringing n gems scores n ^ 1.5
