Kudos on the concept, good luck with the implementation.


This is what I am worried about. I play a ton of games against cooks and new recruits etc, why not? It's fun. I actually seek out HIGH ranked players to try and get THEIR points. Is that "farming"? Heh what is up with this?

Seeing as the title of the thread is Newbie Farming is not Cool it doesnt include map specialisation, unless, of course, you do it with ?'s.

Until there is a thread entitled 'map specialisation farming is not cool' you should be okay.

Mind you I only got this from reading the first post......I could be wrong

There are way too may over-ranked pussies out there in C.C. Land. Most of these gender-confused assholes play together on teams. Why? Because they can rely on most of these newbies to either deadbeat or fail, due to their lack of knowledge of the game they're playing.

Look at all the Doubles, Triples and so on games where you have all these high rank players, play on the same team, who prey on these newbies. Obviously, these sewer dwellers are more concerned about their precious points and won't RISK it by playing others of the same rank.

It's about time we either stop this practice OR find a new point system that hurt those who constantly play inexperienced players or teams.

So I guess clobber will have his balls cut off now, as small as they are.

I think the new system will be fine. There is a difference between joining a game with a ? or cook from time to time and one who habitually fishes for them.

well you should just ban Klobber now, that is all he does.

lately I only been playing 1v1 city mogal seq/chained/no spoils/fog/casual.

I don't think a ? has ever joined those settings, and I assume you blocked the new recruits from joining city mogal anyways.
