I swear I planned on making this exact suggestion like a week ago and forgot to post it. +1 from me.

I think I have seen a thread like this before...

Anyway, I like it, but don't think it is worth the effort. Unless it is easily implemented, then by all means! :)

Yeah, what I wanted was a player's initial and final score to be posted in the game log in the same line as the number of points won/lost (this isn't the same as the OP but has the same results).

I really like the idea it has alot more benefits than named.

However i dont think that anyone will devote the time and effort into making it real. Which is sad because i would love to see it implemented

I don't think your idea is a very feasible one because all the games (old and new) take the information from the player. As the player changes, it changes. Difficult to implement probably. Especially to backdate all the old games.

However, I think that mets' idea would be very easy. You just a little code to put all the player's scores into the game log. I don't think there would be much problem with that. Might be hard to backdate though.

I know it is already submitted, but I would like to throw my two cents in. I think that it would be more useful to use the score at the start of the game (or even when the player joined) than at the end of the game (which seemed to be the focal point of the older thread). I think about when I maprank myself and look at the relative rank, it doesn't look too bad. But when I look at that of a general it looks like they spend all of their time farming because they have obviously played people who do not currently have very high scores comparatively. This would be different if it was based on what rank the players of a game were when they started. Of course, if the archived games are not to be updated with this (which I wouldn't doubt) then maprank will probably end up with two columns, one with the current method of comparison and one with the newly possible method to show that not every player above the rank of major spends all of their time farming.

I think it would be real easy. It could be as simple as one word added to the log. Instead of "Joe Blow gained 18 points" it would be "Captain Joe Blow gained 18 points."

Good idea. I'm not even sure if it would be that hard to make it retroactive. I would think that as a one-off measure, the site could go back through games and retroactively add this information to the game log. MapRank can figure out (at least roughly) what my points were on a certain date. Why couldn't the site? (Rhetorical question alert: Obviously, it could--MapRank gets its information from the site.)

Then, perhaps, the Game Finder and Game screens could pull that information to update the icons. Or maybe have a greyed out icon next to whatever a players current rate is.

I think it would be really cool to go back through my Game History and watch the progress.
