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 like it as well; I'd also enjoy if it'd include the highest score attained.

I would like that. Assassin speed doodle can kill your rank, but I want that silver assassin medal.

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.

It has been 2 years since it was last suggested so maybe a good time to revisit. A player's current rank is displayed in games and forums so having the highest attained rank on the profile shows what they have accomplished. I agree to include the highest attained score. I don't see much value to lowest score or rank.

FYI - if you want to learn about a Canadian soldier who was promoted (and demoted) 9 times then read about "Smokey" Smith who was a VC recipient http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Smokey_Smith It was rumored that he spent the night in jail before receiving his award so he would be sober for the presentation. His highest attained rank was Sargeant.

I think it would be great to have this. I am one person who would really like to hit brig. and I could easily do that with team games because I'm so good ;) but when I start adding in fun games that are all chance I ahve to give up my ability to get a highscore, it would be great for the player to have a high scor eon their profile becasue as stated before it would allow us to have on there "what we are made of, as well as where we are actually at being the current score. I approve of this 100%

humm sorry but I still see no point in your arguments here. If we are so many to display our highest rank obtained on our profile, well I guess we are just a bunch of "sad looking people" according to you but I guess we can all live with that.

The logic underlying your conclusion is fuzzy at best but what-evs lol.
Anyway, I dropped this subject a while back so I'm guessing your reason for trolling is boredom so I'll let it go this time. Enjoy your free pass, betiko!

EDIT: So I looked at your profile betiko and have seen that you are one of "those" people which explains your overly emotional response to my opinion. I've got to ask though, what does your being No.1 in France for a day have anything to do with anything??? I'll bet I have been No.1 in New Hampshire at some point or another or even...*swoons*... the No.1 in New England! *faints*

It's an accomplishment more than anything else, Funky. For instance, I like to check out the Hong Kong scoreboard, and I'm always happy when I make it particularly high up on the scoreboard. It's fun. =) It's like people who reminisce about their hole-in-one, or that day they made $20,000 at the roulette wheel, or that one time I threw out a guy at first base (first and last time I ever got anybody out (= ).

I believe that if you are a colonel and you don t even have a silver cross map you care about points and you are afraid of adventuring yourself on new maps to keep your score up and never do the yoyo. Why bitch about people writing down their high score? Have a look around, you ll see how many people do it.
And yes, you seem to feel threatened by someone bragging about something, so let me have a different opinion regarding the insecure person of the story. Unless the person is a mythomaniac and making stuff up to impress you.

By the way, there is no such thing as a state ranking, only ranking per country so I can only tell you your story is made up! ;)

And yes, you seem to feel threatened by someone bragging about something, so let me have a different opinion regarding the insecure person of the story. Unless the person is a mythomaniac and making stuff up to impress you.

By the way, there is no such thing as a state ranking, only ranking per country so I can only tell you your story is made up! ;)


Hehe.
I'm not bitching, just calling them like I see them. Perhaps the reason I don't have a silver cross map is because I don't care about silver cross maps lol. You can go on defending the pasting of meaningless stats all you want but it won't make people who feel it's silly think any differently. Being no.1 on France, really lol? Seriously betiko, talk to the hand pl0z.

let's just agree that we never agree on anything funky.
For the record, you don't need to actively try for the silver crossmap, in around 1000 games you're supposed to have crossmaped at least 40 maps out of the 230+ with a minimum of curiosity. Also you have no nuclear, trench, assassin, terminator, random map bronze, so i guess you never try those ones that can be costy. Your points graph in your cc lifetime show a very safe and steady growth, you never have big ups and downs. Your current points is almost the same as your high score. For a player like you it's not very interesting to see your high score, but the vast majority of CC players have big ups and downs. I don't really see how this could bother you and how you wouldn't find interesting to find out that a caporal that joined your game was actually a brig a few month back.

And yeah, I find it fun to check my country/general scoreboard when I have good points to see where I stand and I like to pin point if if I reached number 1 at some point. I don't really see what's the harm there, it just seems like you love to judge people but don't accept to be judged in return! ;)
