I feel CC spends to much time reacting instead of planning for the future. take the hints being dropped that a new medal level is coming. it is suggested that level will be 1000 and called Diamond. why CC? i already have several categories that would qualify. so i'm going to want another level beyond Diamond. it wont be long before there'll be a chorus of voices requesting another level. but what is above Diamond? nothing. why build a brick wall for everyone to hit? sure, introduce Diamond if you don't think the site will be here for much longer. or you could plan ahead CC as though you expect to be around another 20 years or more from now.
there was a pattern with the current levels. Bronze = 20, Silver = 5 Bronze, Gold = 4 Silver. the next level would be set at 3 Gold (1200). call it Platinum or something else but the key is these medals should be named after 4 different types of metals, each more precious than the last. a Precious Stone tier could follow above those but it would end with Diamond, not start with it. Emerald
& Diamond. each level would be twice the level before it. that would be 2400, 4800, 9600, 19200. a truly epic achievement and Diamonds are forever
if you want to make counting easier then round the 1200 up to 1250 so this level is 2500, 5000, 10000 & 20000.
yes some players may get there and want more. so where to go after a truly epic achievement that has taken a lifetime. well easy, Idol, Immortal, Demigod, Deity. these levels would be a Diamond achievement greater than the last - 40000, 60000, 80000, 100000.
there is no need to stop there. rollout qwert's ribbon sug as a tiered option that matches the medals above, with your highest ribbon for each map showing. at a glance we could then see if someone specialises in 1 map or is a true all-rounder. the ribbon could have on one side a stripe to represent Bronze, 2 for Silver, 3 for Gold, etc. the other side would have a stripe to represent each of the Stones. 4 Stars would be used to represent the third tier, 2 on each side.
and don't treat Ratings any different. give it matching levels or do away with it completely. but probably keep it as rating might be the only way most of us earn one of those medals of the highest order.
implementing what's outlined above would silence the crying out for higher levels of game achievement recognition for decades to come.
