rankings

Postby mikey6rocker on Wed Feb 01, 2006 6:40 pm

i feel like the rankings are unfair. it shouldnt matter how many games you play it should only matter by the points you recieve. I see Segeants with under 1050 points. You can get more than that by winning 1 game. Here is how the point system should work.

New Recruit
Private- At least 5 games any # of points
Sergeant- Any games, 1100 points
Lieutenant- Any games, 1300 points
Captain- Any Games, 1500 points
Major- any games, 1700 points
Colonel- any games, 1900 points
General- any games, 2000+ points.

I believe this is better because no matter what it will still take alot of games to get to 2000 points. on your point sytem it says general is a minimum of 4000 points, that will take an extremly long time to get to. I see people who have played 30 games and havent even got to 2000 yet. Or if you want the upper class to be really special and you really want a min # of games the ranking can be like this: start from bottem.

General of the Army [special]- any # of games, 5000+ points
General, 40 games, 2000 points
Lieutenant General- 40 games, 1950 points
Colonel 35 games, 1900 points
Lt. Colonel- 35 games, 1800 points
Major- 30 games, 1700
Captain- 25 games, 1500
First Lieutenant- 20 games, 1400
Lieutenant- 20 games, 1300
Sergeant Major- 15 games, 1250 points
Master Sergeant- 15 games, 1200 points
Sergeant First Class- 15 games, 1150 points
Sergeant- 15 games, 1100 points
Corporal- 10 games, 1050 points
Private First Class- 5 games, 1000 points
Private- 5 games, any points

i like the ranking system above the best, more ranks and more oppertunities, i feel like some one who had played 15 games with a 1300 ranking should have a higher class, or be acknowladged more than someone who ahs played 15 games and has a 947 rating.

That looks pretty cool, but where is lack going to get 20 insignia? I think it's a little too complicated to be workable.

IMO, the system is fine the way it is. One day, I will be a General. It doesn't have to happen today. Or this month, for that matter. The way I see it, the harder you have to work to achieve your goal, the more deserved it is when you finally do.

Besides, the site is only a month old today. Shouldn't you give it longer than 30 days before you deem its heirarchy unacceptable?

Aren't you viewing this the wrong way? The bars and the rankings signify different things and can't really be equated, can they? Rankings are how good you are, and the bars are just whether or not you know how to play.

People elsewhere are complaining about new members without any idea of the rules or who just deadbeat out right away. I feel their pain, so now I want games with people who have bars. I see those bars, I know that person at least knows how to play. I see two, three bars... that person probably knows how to play a game RIGHT. More bars than that, they're probably wily as hell. In this sense it doesn't matter at all what their ranking is because the game will go without a hitch and that's way more important.

When I first saw the bars (after a minute to work out what the heck they were) I thought they were like those little titles you get for having loads of posts on a lot of bulletin boards. I think that's all they should be thought of as.

Postby YP_Legend on Thu Feb 02, 2006 4:51 am

:arrow: ...i like this idea of the top ranking player having a custom icon or insignia, exclusively his/her own........might i be the 1st to suggest a cap with a feather in it?........heh heh heh.......i bet i could find you 1 or make it mr. lack, if you so warranted it. :) YP


P.S. Lets not leave out the lowest ranking player. Should they have their own also?...like a mop bucket?...or white flag?...lol...maybe a potato peeler :lol:.....lmao

Cool. I didn't realize today is Conquer Club's 1 month anniversary. I agree let's give the current rakings some time before I re-evaluate them (based on all the feedback here of course). Besides, other changes have higher priority, like addressing the multiple accounts that some players are cheating with :evil:

I like the ranking system the way it is. I think the bars should just say how many games you've played that way you can tell if your playing with a bunch of new people or expreienced players.
If you want to know who the best is check the scoreboard.
