Similar, yes ... and I said so.

Mostly, people want to be able to set their own limits. That, however, can be far too exclusive.

The primary legitimate reasons for limiting who joins are behavior (foe list deals with this) and the fear of losing too many points or playing someone way outside one's skill level. I set the range at 3 above and 5 below because I felt that is a good rough range for skill.

It's stupid to limit you games and discriminate against players just because they're lower ranks. If you care so much about your points, then start a private, passworded game. This is supposed to be a fun gaming site, and limiting who can play you because you're so worried about points takes the fun out of it.

If you think the range I suggested is too wide, then that is definitely worth considering ... what gap would you like? But, I am regularly both and play many of each, which is why I don't think there is much differance.

How about reading before you comment?

I specifically am NOT "against lower ranks". (I am one!) I will play anyone. My issue is that if I start a team game, I will find myself facing a team of majors and brigadiers. Once in a while ... OK, I can learn. But, every time ... I just don't join unfilled team games any more.

Also, the point is that higher ranks already do avoid playing lower ranked players. They do it by having private games. This would be an option that would open up a few more games to those who like. The regular options would still exist.

I think that point is worth emphasising; this 'rank filter' or 'slot limit' as PLAYER describes it would actually open up more games to public competition since, at present, the only way those players that want it have of limiting entry to a game is to use the private game option which is a very blunt tool. This suggestion provides a much more subtle too which will be optional after all.

Ranking as game option?

Postby Starfire73 on Sun Oct 12, 2008 10:34 pm

Why not have a ranking selector as one of the game options? That way people of various ranks could designate the ranks they are willing to play with. It's like I'm a beer league slowpitch softball player, and in the game comes this major league baseball player. This should not be happening.

I don't see the point??
If you want to choose the ranks you play with just join a game that already has the ranks you want or get premium, create private games and invite the ranks you want to your private game ;)

Create private games...create RANK based games!

Postby Themachine on Mon Oct 20, 2008 4:31 am

Premise - Im a bit of a noob to CC, but the general consensus i get from reading these forums is the scoring system seems to piss people off, big time.


People create private games so as to avoid the possibility of a cook joining and taking lots of points from them, so why not let us create public games with a rank restriction?

Nothing too drastic, couldnt ban everyone of lower rank, but say, exclude anyone more than 3 ranks below you.
For example a sergent could exclude anyone below private first class from joining his game.

3 would be the max, couldnt exclude people 1 or 2 below you or no one of lower rank would get the chance to play better players.


We're allowed private games, dont see why this wouldnt be a good idea.

This thread duplicates the suggestion already being discussed in Optional Rank Criteria in order to Join. Please continue discussion in that thread.

Blocking System

Postby Deathwind on Thu Oct 23, 2008 6:58 pm

Ok i like to play 1v1 but i was a captain and this moron joins my game and wins after I had the game basically cause of a cash of 3 cards I think.He was like a cadet and took so many points(46 to be exact) from me.I think there should be a thing so you can block like guys of a certain rank or lower from joining your game....please do it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

No. Terrible idea that's been suggested many, many times. I imagine Circero will be along any minute now to give you a thread to discuss this in and to lock this one.

Win some lose some. If you lost to a n00b because you didn't plan for the eventuality of them getting a 3-card set, then maybe you should be the cadet.

An escalating game? Who'd have ever thought of it? What a cheap shot victory, I mean, it's not like you had the game basically by using card sets, which is a cheap and unethical way to play. You played the honest and fair way. Yes, by all means, there should be a way to avoid playing people like that.
