Two-Tier Score Board

Postby gimil on Tue Dec 30, 2008 9:04 pm

Concise description:
  • Split the score board into two different tables.

Specifics:
  • The two different tables should be as follows:
    • The ranks - Members who are part of 'The Ranks' Scoreboard will be members with points between 1 and 1400. That is all ranks up to Sergent 1st class.
    • Officers Mesh - Anyone with a score of 1401+ will be put into this group.
  • All players will only be able to play games with those that are on the same scoreboard as them.
  • Should you gain more than 1400 points you will be promoted to the officers mesh and vice versa.

This will improve the following aspects of the site:
  • Stop high ranked farming of lower ranks.
  • Keep players playing around their skill level.
  • To stay in the top end you need to play against top end players.
  • Scoreboard split does not apply to tournement games.
  • Scoreboard split does not apply to friends list? Premium Players only?
  • Probably alot more good things to come of it.

So... what if you're a major - but your bud sorta sucks and is a steady cadet? Would you not be able to play him/her?
Maybe you could be allowed a certain number of friends, with whom you could play across scoreboards.
Good idea though gimil - where's my graphics stamp? ;)

I just had a thought, maybe make it so that you can play team games cross scoreboards with people on your friends list? But only if you are on the same team? As long as the rest of the teams ingame only come from the top scoreboard, if that makes sense.

I think the the scoreboard should be divided up in some ways but gimil I'm gonna stand my ground on this one I don't like the idea of not playing high ranked players(there an excellent source of points)

Thats only if you can beat them thou. With this system you have to prove you are better than 'the ranks' to play those higher up and if you get up and can't take the heat you go back down.It should also help move the scoreboard a little closer to skill than it is argued to be at current due to farming, specialisation etc etc.

I like this idea.

I try to play majors+ only, and then I only play those who are higher than my rank (excluding games with many people where I try to keep the average at captain or higher). This would help out a good deal.

Why did you choose 1400, by the way?

Better idea: give all farmers one more chance if they cobrinue ban them and record their ip adress
Every one else gets 3 strikes on farming 3rd time u get banned. Their farming problem solved

An easy split between officers and the ranks.

An automated system where the site doesn't allow it to happen automatically is much easier to manage than a person moderated system. A threee strike system may sound easy in theory, but in practise it is a different ball game.

But what if you want to play standard games, I have a group of friends that I like to play games with , and they're all below 1400.
Maybe on private games if the invited player is in the friends list of the player that created the game they can join?
I know farmers will try to use this in their favor, but it would suck to limit the chances to play against your friends.
Another solution to this could be something that was suggested before, which is games without points. Maybe if you make a private game and you're over 1400 and someone below 1400 joins in then there will be no points given or taken on that game? that way people can still play their friends for fun?

this is an issue I thought about. I don't really have a solution. Personally though I would be happy to live with it. I have lower ranked friends as well which I am happy to give up to try and make the site a little better.

There are 3 people that I know of who use the private game feature to farm: max, King H, and lany on occasion. Even if there are more, then that number is such a small percent (of all people and farmers) that it can be overlooked and private games should be available with any rank.

Except, the other solution: only tournament games are open for any rank. Get together with a group of friends, start a tourney, then play each other via that. It is a lot harder for a farmer to do that, especially since tournaments have to be started through actual threads, and mods have to approve them anyways.

Either one works. Allows friends to play friends (and only premiums in the first one). And makes farming harder.
