List Highest ranking and score on Profile Page

Postby andyr601 on Thu Jun 09, 2011 1:46 pm

I noticed that a lot of members put their highest achieved ranking and score on the "interests" spot on the profile page. Why not add a spot for highest achieved ranking and score. It would be fun to see the ups and downs of players

And just because something was suggested 4 years ago, doesn't mean it is any more valid a suggestion than one suggested today.

That being said, while I may not necessarily have a particular desire for such a feature as this, I know many put their highest score and rank on their profile and/or in their sigs, so I imagine there would be a fair amount of people that would appreciate this.

Am in favour of the highest rank and score reached, this would be a good idea even if its to remind me of what I was once! , don't see the point of a lowest score as everyone would have a lowest score of at 1000 or less, as we all start with 1000 as new recrutes.

Show highest attained rank on profile

Postby Grifter on Tue Feb 19, 2013 10:05 pm

Concise description:
Show a player's highest attained rank on their profile. This would be displayed below their current rank.

Specifics/Details:
Due to the nature of the game a player can get promoted to a higher rank only to be demoted after some unfortunate losses. If so then their current rank would still be shown on games and forums but the profile would display the highest rank. Below is what it might like for me

Username: Grifter
Current Rank: Lieutenant
Highest Rank: Captain

How this will benefit the site and/or other comments:
Allow players to brag about their accomplishments even it was for a short time. Also encourage a player to keep going an re-attain their promotion.

I think it would help remind people that no matter what rank you are currently they were (insert rank here) once. Say im talking to a cook who has a general under his name. It would really help me to determine if he has any prior knowledge or skill. Most people when medal hunting take big dips in their score. This would help with team games when gauging how good a team really is.

Im sure there is more positive things to this. I don't see any negative, but I may be biased since I like to remind people I was a general at one point :lol: .

I think it'd be great!

On the chess site GameKnot, they include stats on a player's page, and one thing they track is your highest rank in the past 90 days, the past year, and all rated games. I don't think CC needs to bother going that far, but highest rank/score attained would be a nice addition to the profile.

I always thought it was wierd when people paste a picture of their highest rank or write it in their sig. It's basically like showing evidence they're washed up or something. You just end up thinking, "well that must have been a fluke" or "Hmm they must have lost their touch". I guess I'm not really anti or anything but I don't think that people who post that sort of thing realize what it looks like to others: kind of pathetic.

I think it's a great idea even if it has been proposed many times before. there are countless players out there posting their highest score/position on their wall (the rank is useless, you know what the score corresponds to..).
I don't think someone with an old great high score means he's a has been, it just means he stopped caring at some point because he is medal hunting, or has just been plaing stupid costy settings for fun, always good to know what your opponent is capable of.

I didn't say it meant absolutely that he/she is a has-been but that's just what it looks like and since this suggestion probably appeals to people who are looking for prestige for a rank they no longer hold, it's just kind of an empty concept. So you've abandoned rank for the sake of getting medals, etc., but you want to show everyone that you were a contender once? Not only is it a "you can't have your cake and eat it too" sort of thing but it is evidence of being washed up in that it represents living in a past which does not currently apply to you. I can see the conqueror medal as that's a real achievement but if you've managed to reach Brig for a few days... Whoopdie dooo! If people want to show their highest rank attained, just put it in your sig like all the other sad looking people. If it means that much to you, this is a small amount of work and besides, most people don't really care obviously. Otherwise more people would be doing it.
This all reminds me of when you hear someone say "I used to be this/that" in rl. Your mental response is: Ok, so what? Are you insecure or something?

I don't see much advantage to this. Why not statistically relevant numbers instead of outliers? How about median, first and third quartile scores? "Highest" is an arbitrary score and tells us nothing.
