Re: blinking

overall to be honest i think its a good idea, you might not agree with me or you might agree with me, there's no point in telling me that it was pointless making this post, or something like that, i will most likely not look at this again as i will probably forget about it (hehe) lets see what happens anyway, it would definately be handy

Game with a minimum of point for each player

Postby BENCLUB on Wed Feb 13, 2013 3:26 pm

Hi all

Sorry, my english is too bad to write an introduction and an conclusion of suggestion.

It will be nice to start a game if with people who have a minimum if x points.

Because when you have 1800 points, you really don't want to have people with less than 1500 points in your game.

So please add an option :

"Minimum points to join your game : [x]....... [x][NONE]"

Thank you so much

However, there is a place where you can set up private games with a minimum points per player.
There's no 1500 points, but here's the one for 1600 points: https://www.conquerclub.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=31&t=47572

Increasing competition, lower ranks.

Postby PLAYER57832 on Thu Aug 01, 2013 10:01 am

Note paired with this suggestion, for upper ranks:
viewtopic.php?f=4&t=194023&p=4245834#p4245834

Concise description:
Allow lower ranked players to limit upper ranks from joining their games. It might be offered as a "premium only" option. If so, you might offer it as a trial option for people who have not yet played 25 games.

Specifics/Details:
To qualify, you must be currently no higher than Sergeant, and have NEVER reached Captain or above. Would not apply to Tournaments, Battles Royale or BETA maps. Might or might not be allowed for holiday/special maps. There might be an exclusion for "approved mentors", in mentor programs.

If you fall in the above categories, you can exclude anyone who is ranked Captain or above from your games. The exclusion would automatically be removed if you go up in rank. Initially, when a person first goes above Sergeant, they would be kicked off, but them be allowed to exclude again once they dropped back in rank. However, once they hit Captain, they would no longer be allowed to exclude at all. This last is to keep "sandbaggers" from using this to their gain.

If offered as a trial option, people would have the option of excluding higher ranked players for their first 25 games, then they would have to buy premium if they wanted to continue to exclude. This limitation would have to be explained (maybe in a quick pop up) or people would miss out, not knowing it exists.

How this will benefit the site and/or other comments:
This is about having games that are fun and competitive, learning experiences rather than just massacres. Unlike other suggestions, this one should encourage newbies. It might be offered as a "premium only" option. If so, you might offer it as a trial option for people who have not yet played 25 games.



I am far less concerned about upper ranks occasionally losing to lower ranked players due to "luck" or "sandbagging" (a good player that intentionally loses to go down in rank), because even though the system is not perfect, skill pretty much does outweigh luck in those cases. Its not so much that there is NO problem, just that any fix is worse than the "problem" of higher rank people occasionally losing lots of points to lower rank, if for no other reason than that higher ranked players have generally been here long enough to figure out how to "work the system", finding ways to generally limit lower ranks when they wish to do so.

The upper cutoff should be major, not captain.

Re: Increasing competition, lower ranks.

Postby Jdsizzleslice on Fri Aug 02, 2013 6:51 pm

Here is a stat for you. Think about it. What % of people with 2000 points or more JOIN games with people with 1400 or less?

Now take that % and ask this question, what % of those people who do JOIN games actually consistently play those games? Whenever I play Speed games, I am constantly looking for Freestyle games. I love Freestyle games, and this would hamper my ability to do so.

So you're saying if a Corporeal creates a 6 person Feudal War game, that only people 1999 and below can join? That's ABSURD! It's basically telling me what games I can/cannot play.

Postby patrickaa317 on Fri Aug 02, 2013 9:36 pm

Not interested. Ranks change based on what people are playing. I have hovered at major for quite a while but lately I am playing a lot more random games so I'm stuck between the 1550-1900 point mark. I feel on some maps I can play just as well as anyone despite my current rank being #3577.

Rank is too generally based to try to do something so narrowed down.
taking a break from cc, will be back sometime in the future.

I can agree with Patrick's point. My map rank stats show - I am incredible at Stalingrad, Jamaica, Poker Club, Hive, Treasures of Galapagos; which are highly specialized maps. However, I am not so good at large maps like NYC, which keeps my points down. I usually feel like quitting CC anytime I get a NYC game, so if you want free points, come play me.

This would create a big hamper for the map microcommunities. Why should there be a schism for us Hive-trenchers?

You have it backwards. You would be able to join any game you wish, but you can prohibit higher ranks from joining your games if you wish.

Also, it is NOT mandatory, it would be an option.

And, as to who in the upper ranks joins lower rank games.. basically any farmer, and a few other decent folks. I would play higher ranked people, particularly in the more unusual maps frequently.

This is NOT MANDATORY. It is merely an option.

I, too, play variety maps more than the "standards". All this would do is allow lower ranks to specify whether they wanted upper ranks to join or not.. and ONLY if they stay low rank. If you "bounce around" the scoreboard, then it would not apply.

Basically, this would not do much for someone like you. The people it would help are many of those who wind up disgusted and leave because they don't want to get slaughtered constantly and don't want to devote the time to SOC or something similar.

If someone gets slaughtered constantly in this game, they should realize either to play less complicated maps or to revise their strategy. Noone with half a decent amount of strategy should continue to get slaughtered on maps like classic, if you do, then this site is simply not for you. Allowing people to limit on ranks won't fix this. What will is posting in the callouts section, joining games rather than creating games (then you can pick your opponent), or taking the time to go through SOC. If they don't want to "devote" their time to benefit their own gameplay, I don't think we should "devote" development time to put something like this in.

I don't mean to continue to bash your suggestions here player, keep them coming.

Option to select which Ranks can enter your Speed Game

Postby nietzsche on Sun Aug 11, 2013 5:50 pm

Concise description:
Option to select which Ranks can enter your Speed Game

Specifics/Details:
Select by Minimum rank and Maximum rank.

How this will benefit the site and/or other comments:

I believe one of the reasons for the decline in the number of speed games available at most times of the day is due to the fact that high ranked players who play mostly casual have been bitten in the ass in the past, losing to lowed ranked players.

I'm aware this has been discussed in the past, but imagine this: Lots of high ranked players wishing to play a 1vs1, waiting behind the fence to join a speed game, but no one wants to start a game because it will be joined by player that has skill but has a low rank at the moment.

If you could put those high ranks behind the fence to play together, whats the harm? The "shoutbox" suggestion was not implemented either, it could serve the purpose also.

This could also serve low ranks, who feel comfortable in games playing with guys with the same skill.


Before you reject and archive this, give it a little bit of thought, not everybody thinks like you you know.

And look at speed games, look at how many games high rank start and play, but discount the freestylers, they don't care about rank, they are all about the speed.
