Rank limitations for games

Postby Orange-Idaho-Dog on Fri Mar 19, 2010 12:51 pm

Concise description:
  • Put a drop-down tab when starting a game to allow a player to set rank limitations as to who can join their game.

Specifics:
  • The default setting would be no restriction, so that you can still make games that anyone can join.
  • You would only be allowed to set a rank limitation up to your rank, IE. My current rank is Captain. I would be able to set a limitation so that only X to Captain can join my game, X being any rank lower than Captain.

This will improve the following aspects of the site:
  • This will allow more equal games when it comes to experience, and prevent games such as a Terminator game with me vs 3 low ranks (corporal or lower) where I am immediately targeted by all 3 players and stand no chance to win what-so-ever, and end up losing 30+ points.
  • This would also help cut down on the current way to setup a rank-specific game; making a game with a password and waiting for who knows how long for players to reply asking for the password.

Before anyone says it, no amount of strategy or epic dice will prevail in a 3v1 situation, I don't care who you are.

Opinions?

I believe my suggestion has the limitations needed to make this work. From what I've seen, the other suggestions have failed to have the limit where you could only set the limitation up to your own rank.

If needed, there could be a limitation added so that only X rank or higher can use the option, so that Cooks and New Recruits couldn't use it, as there's really no need.

If it is implemented, there would have to be special searches available to find the games.


*Edit*

Weather this is implemented or not, rank specific games still happen in the Callouts forum. This would just let things be quicker, and less spam games posted in the forums. It would make things easier all-around.

This has been rejected every time someone posts it... Thats why there is a search forum.

The only way this could work, imo, is to have a max rank limit of say 1200 for games in which only players under 1200 could play and no one over 1200 could play... Other than that this is crap!

I've read a few of the other Suggestion threads for similar ideas. Weather or not this particular idea gets implemented, I don't care. But I'm really tired of being in games against low ranks where I have absolutely no chance to win, all I can do is sit there and watch my points disappear.

Some sort of limitation needs implemented, I can guarentee I'm not the only one fighting for it, and I'm not the only one that would use it.

I'd like to hear from some higher rank players, no offence intended to those who have posted already. I just want some opinions from the players who would use this option the most, if it was implemented.

Not sure if this really belongs here but theres a lot of predatory team games setup. People spam quadruples or triples and in all the cases its the same three high-ranking players on team one. Inevitably its only noobs that filll up the other team.

ASSUMING this isnt purposely setup noob farming, a rank option would allow a fairer match.

Any rank option would have to make sure that it didnt encourage noob-farming i.e. a cpt could set the rank limit to provate or whatever

If a Captain set the limit to Private; Private, Private 1st class, Corporal, Corporal 1st class, Sergeant, Sergeant 1st class, Lieutenant and Captain's could all join the game.


This would not assist noob farming anymore than setting up a regular game would, and it would deffinately help make games fairer for all.

Re: Rank limitations for games

Postby Tezu on Tue Mar 30, 2010 4:17 pm

I think this is a great idea, setting a minimum and a maximum rank to join the game... This way newbs would be able to set a limit and not have to face majors or above for example... I know I used to avoid games with high ranking players when I was new, now I try to avoid low ranked ones...
But I know this suggestion has been rejected over and over again... admins say it protects against discriminating newbies, but it would also help protect newbies from farmers, or just from getting beat once and again by expert players...

Exactly, No one rank would benefit more than another from this being implemented. And if/when this is officially rejected, again, I think the Admin's should come up with a better idea, because I know a lot of players who want something along these lines put into place. Other wise there wouldn't be 10+ suggestion threads about it.

could not a league table be done so that games are only available to people of theoretically even ability?i dont care who i play , im in the game simply because in my rural community there arent enough players to get a game together and am suffering withdrawals, and as a new recruit its a bit deceptive as ive played the board game quite a bit.

This site is not interested at all in "fair", they are interested in "money". Sadly, they have come to the conclusion (wrongly, in my opinion) that this sort of an implementation would result in less "money", therefore it is rejected every time.

You do realize that what you are suggesting would actually ONLY allow noobs to join, and not anyone above your rank. So what you are complaining about is actually all you will get.

I would LOVE to be able to keep out cooks and the like from joining games, but this isn't the first time this has been suggested in some form or another and it still has yet to be implemented. I'm sure the admins are worried that all the higher ranks will only play games amongst themselves, but there are ways to do that anyways.

Good luck.

Actually this is another implementation that I would suggest.

Being able to set certain Parameters on creating a game would promote lesser members to become PAID members. Just saying

There's obviously enough push from the community to make this happen. I think the Admin's should think up some sort of option to accomplish something similar to what is wanted, since they don't seem to like our ideas.

I'm ready to stop playing public games because I simply lose too many points to complete noobs who have no clue what they're doing, Sorry to be stereotypical, but it's the truth. When it's 3v1 in a 4 player game, I'm doomed to lose. No strategy or miracle dice combined could over come those odds.

Now if it's a 4 player game with somewhat evenly ranked players, rank isn't a factor in elimination nearly as much. Overall, it would make for much more fair games, for both noobs and high ranked players. I think it would also be a bit harder to gain ranks if such an option was implemented, giving players a goal to aim for. Of course, with the default setting being No Limitation, there would still be plenty of public games that all ranks could join. I myself would still play No Limitation games, just not as many as I do now.
