You do realize your "highest rank/operative rank" is totally skewed, right?
Say you're high score is 1200, and you are at 1000 right now. 1200/1000 = 1.2
This player goes up against this ---> 5500/1200 = 4.5833333~
Suddenly, instead of losing about 22-25 points from the lower ranked player, the Corporal is going to lose about 50~ points. You are only going to piss off more players that used to be high ranks, but now are lower ranks.
Also, someone AT their high rank is going to have skewed results. 2500/2500 = 1
In that situation, the player with 2500 would win more points that he would if he lost.
I was hoping we could come up with something a little better than that. think outside the box.

It's a lot like gambling and the points are your money.
Posting, or factoring in your highest score ever is a bit silly in my opinion, it's like saying, once I was a millionaire and now I'm broke, but you still have to treat me like I'm successful.
I don't think that's going to do anything but make people wonder what happened? How'd you loose all your points and why didn't you do something about it?
For what it's worth that's what I think.
ok thanks Dana it's good to hear from an adult.
maybe I'm looking at the points system wrong. I was under the impression it should be relevant to skill and not simply monopoly money. I can see why certain players would be threatened by my idea if they were the type who would actually start new accounts over it.

That would be great!" Well, what happens when I decide I want to play less feudal and more variety? Now i have to put up with my score dropping twice as fast? My rank dropping to cook, when it should have leveled off at Sergent? Heck no! I'd start a new account and ditch this one, if that were the case. actually, I'd probably ditch the site all together. As is, you get plenty of points for your sparse wins. be happy with it, and bug off.
ok go take your medicine and come back when you can be civil. grownups are talking.
