LOL, I sincerely admire your patience... You're Discussions Moderator with a reason! Deep respect!

@everybody
We have a serious, not yet mentioned flow of the system - Freestyle and Sequential are two different games (with VERY different luck factor) and should be completely separated.
Otherwise, the scoring system is pretty good. In 4 pages I didn't hear ONE serious, reasonable complain...
The lowest rank: Question Mark
The lowest score: 1000
The lowest place on the scoreboard: don't remember

But they won't, the Admin's are a bunch of socialists who believe in redistribution of wealth.

Has the CC Court made their decision? Shall points be redistributed in a fair and equitable socialist society, or shall free points markets be allowed to exist?

### Re: Points system

I just want to say how fed up i am of the points system ...

There are a high number of maps on CC that are very simple and require little to no strategy and hense you rely on the dice to win ...no matter who you play be they big or small player ...............these games you have to avoid as a big player as you can soon loose alot of points to small players .Hense you dont get to enjoy or play the simple maps unless you want to risk loosing alot of points.

So as a big player you have to stick to a few maps that require more complicated bonuses and hope that if a small player joins they havent got a clue lol but its a fair game if you think you know the rules ....But even then if the dice are not with you then its hopeless.

Given that what players rely on most are good dice which by that i mean Luck then why have we such an awfull points system where by when you get to a better stage you are punished if you loose a game of mostly luck ........

Please please give us a fairer points system so we as bigger players dont just keep to 1 or 2 maps for our points as its kinda gets boring !

Branch out, Boudicia. They're just points, after all. Don't let your enjoyment of the site be ruined by having to risk a few more points.

Also, stop by the Captains Callout thread in the Callouts forum, and post some games other players can join.

### Re: Points system

Futhermore, calling a Captain, Big Player... is saying too much, a Big Player, I would say that a "Big Player" would be 3000 or atleast 2700 or 2800.

I'm sure many players can reach to atleast 2700, playing against anyone in any map with any setting.

And lastly, that a map is simple doesn't mean that you can pull some strategies to win, based on the setting or on the things in the map, that only experienced players (or people who think outside the box) see. Hell, even Saint Patrick's Map (the map most luck-biased) you can even pull 2 or 3 tactits depending on the deploy and other few (you can do many things apart from going directly for the pot). So it's never 50/50 (unless we talk about equal players, but then this can happen in any map)

### Re: Points system

Well i have to beat 3 or 4 small players for the same points as 1 small player beating me for the same points ....

And considering most maps are not difficult and even the one that i specialise on Third Crusade which has got s bit of skill ...that can all change if you have your go second ......so what ever mods say i know it is not fair .......as when i put out games most are small players that take up the challenge and so I'm up and down on points like a see saw

### Re: Points system

Consider posting your games in the callouts forum for 1800+ players if you are worried about getting players with similiar points to you to join. They have a password you can set that only other players that are 1800+ will be allowed to know. You can also use that password to join other players with similiar score to yours. There are forums for 1600+, 1800+, 2000+, 2500+, 3000+, so as your score improves you can continue finding competitive games with balanced points.

And a colonel has to beat you 3 times for the same points you would get by winning 1...

In a 1v1, the one who goes second, has less chances, is not only Third Crusade, is in all maps, even conquest maps. Plus if you are specializing on Third Crusade, that means that you can win perfectly to someone, who only knows the basic of the map, even if you a second

not ALL maps but rather MOST maps.
for example on All Your Base Are Belong To Us the person going second often has the advantage of finding useful info and taking bonuses from the person going first.

ok, maybe all, it was saying to much. The question is that if you specialize in one map (even if is simple), you can have a win to an average player regardless of when is your turn (and even deploy/luck)

actually going first is better, if you are not right next to eachother (in base terms, the same race)

if you're same race it isn't necessarily better to go first.
for example if you are alien and decide to take 1-2 pairs in tech lvl 1 of the alien tree you have to kill some neutral terits, then the second player simply comes and takes those terits from you. his advantage is that you were the one that cleared the terits.

and even if you're different races it can still be better to go second.

let's say you're an alien and go first.
you take clon and vats. but because you don't know what race i am you can't afford to leave clon undefended so you leave the bulk of your army on clon and move just 1 to vats. with regular dice that should mean ~4 troops left on clon.
then my turn comes and seeing that you conquered 2 neutral terits and analysing the snapshot from the game start i realise you took a tech lvl 1 pair. me being human and seeing that no human tech lvl 1 pair is taken leads to the conclusion that you're an alien.
this means that i can now concentrate full force on taking as many tech lvl 1 pairs without worrying to protect them.
this means i'll probably get 2 pairs or at least get 3 terits and a good placement of troops while you have 4 armies stuck in an useless terit. so after round 1 i already have a bigger bonus or at least have a better position for expanding

### Re: Points system

never played that map so i dont know ...

Anyhow my plan now is to try and stick to the one map Third crusade which i do have a higher win ratio at and hope i dont get to many clever cooks ...

oh love the creationist slant on your picture hehehe ...

### Re: Points system

thats it im quitting this game from here on as the points system drives me bloody loopy .....honestly with a game based on on ruddy luck ie the dice i get penalised with so many points taken away by ruddy cooks ...............Try ruddy playing a simple map and youll see what i mean .........the fun is taken away from the game when you have to just play a complicated map repeatedly just to gain points just because most noobs dont understand the rules .........stick your game as i wont be back goodday

### Re: Points system

Can it be that you are just not good enough?
Anyways captain is not a bad rank, and overall you should end up with the rank you more or les play like. Getting higher then major does require singular dedication and excellence.
With regards to farming lower ranked players. remember that if they ever do win, you are down for more points then you could possibly gain.
It is mostly advisable to play against players more or less of the sasme rank. Better opponants also make you a better player.

I don't think going second in all your base is an advantage I think going first is...you can play the map going first just like you would playing second. Just because you go first doesn't mean you have to move first but you do get that extra deploy.
