i am sure they get more complaints ... but i doubt it is an ego thing (maybe a tincey bit) the thing is they do not have to do anything about it any longer (the whole object of the update); they can file all feedback complaints under 'H' for 'he-he, he-he-he' ;)

Exactly. So why not just re-establish the old system without the ability to complain/overturn bad feedback? Seems like a no-brainer to me. But of course, I've been saying that all along. :roll:

well i understand why they will not do un-mod'ed, bespoke feedback ... the game can get pretty heated and nasty as we know. Feedback is often the expression of emotion and interpersonal ire.

I had put together a nice alternative option for moderated feedback but people who care enough about Comment based feedback to actually get involved, are very much in the minority.. Trust me, i gave it a bloody good shot and lobbied all over for support!

They won't listen. I don't think they understand they are running a business now, as opposed to having a laugh on the web with their mates.

i don't like the rating system because people give poor ratings with no explanation. for example, in one game i started the conversation by saying, "gl" no one else said anything. that was it. but then my opponent gave me 3 stars for attitude. 3 stars for everything, actually. i didn't miss a turn and if i played unfairly it was in vain because i didn't win.
i do like the medals though. that's fun.

Not in this ratings system. It's very obvious that 5 is average because that's the "average" rating left by everyone. Anyone with a single ounce of intelligence can see that since everyone is used to the positive/neutral/negative system, they are using the following system....5=positive, 3= neutral, 1=negative. The only reason to give someone a neutral under the old system was so that you could comment on his feedback without actually hurting it. Now, people don't have any reason to leave a "neutral". Just another reason why this thing is a pointless waste of space.

I don't know if this has been brought up, but I need to be able to put a comment under the ratings from others. I got a 3 from a player on attendance. I didn't miss. I don't miss!It is the only rating that is not subjective. And I think it would be good to be able to respond to ratings like this. I this in the works? And if not,.... WHY?

I was told by a player that because I played after he had finished in a freestyle game (because I had 2 ongoing freestyle rts) I would be getting all ones, this is obvious abuse of the system, in return I gave him all ones, he sucked the fun out of that game, and it will be hard to tell whether the feedback given from him is true, the feedback given from me will suffer the same scrutiny. It does not work as a system. If anything allow comments but not positive or negative feedback, no ratings but If a player is interested in another players performance he can read those

Not really. Because you can delete what you don't like. I told one player, learn how to play assassin. And she deleted it. So I put it back with a row of"!!!!" and she deleted that and put me on her foe list. Hilarious!!!!!!

If I only rate a player's attendance, does it count as a rating towards the medal?
