It is easier to gain points in team games then in Singles games by simply choosing very strong team mates. It's much harder to gain points if one has to win the points on one's own. It would be very good to see who is the strongest singles player.
The problem with your suggestion, Rutty, which both Tokle and Ljex touched upon, is that points gained in an individual setting are too easily manipulated. As you saw with Ljex's example, he is +9,000 in Freestyle, but has only had around 4,500 at any given time.Blitzaholic
is +18,000 in trips and quads.
For the most popularized and extreme example, Mageplunka
is something like +20,000 points in speed doodle assassins, which usually make anyone below Major drop rank.
Because it is so easily manipulated, it proves very little, especially skill-wise.
If you want to have a little fun, Rutty, MapRank youself. Otherwise, there's nothing that should be done. The current scoreboard has its flaws, but the way that points can be manipulated in the current system is nothing compared to the way they can be manipulated if we start narrowing down the search.
And, HA, I don't even think it's worth it to have it as an option. It's just a waste of space and will only serve to delude less perceptive people into thinking they are better than they actually are.
Damn, I must be lost. How did I end up in suggs?
And what ever happened to my, "Create a new rank at 4,000" thread?
Nobody cares? I'm never going to hit 4k in my life, but it's still annoying to me.
