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.

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.

LOW RANKED PLAYERS BLOCKED

Postby Neptune1 on Wed Nov 05, 2008 8:05 am

Whilst many people will dismiss this out of hand, I think some careful thought should be given to this suggestion.

At the time of writing I'm a Sargeant, and on quite a few occasions I've played Majors and Captains and beaten them - all down to a great drop and the run of the dice, and probably not through my own incredibly snazzy skill.

By the same token I've lost plenty against cooks, cadets and newbies - again, not because they're better than me but because of the reasons above.

Wouldn't it be a sound idea to give players the option of 'ticking a box' when setting up a game whether they'll allow lower ranked players to join their game ?

In the past, if a player set up say 10 2 x player games, feasibly 10 cooks could join, beat you 10 times and decimate your rating, all through crap die and dodgy drops - very unfair I think.

As players learn through practice and move up the ranks, they can continue playing games against people of their own rank.

Of course, if your a Major and confident of trouncing a cadet then you wouldn't tick the box when setting up a game.

Seems like a win win situation for everyone.

If you don't like the idea, then when setting up a game you leave it open for any rank to join. If you want to protect your rank, then you make sure you 'tick the box' allowing only players of equal rank to join the game, in much the same way as the tick boxes for Fog Of War, Spoils/No Spoils, Assassin games, etc.

There's a option for Private games, which in my opinion is an exclusion option, allowing players to pick and choose who they want to play against, so why not extend that and allow this idea ?


PLACE A CONCISE DESCRIPTION OF THE SUGGESTION OR BUG IN THE SUBJECT LINE!!!

The dice ARE random, lots and lots of analysis has been done on them both internally and by community members.

Search for previous suggestion or bug reports and check stickies before posting something "new".

Delete or replace any xxxxxxx with the appropriate information.
Delete any entires which do not apply.
</DELETE ME>

Concise description:
  • xxxxxxx

Specifics:
  • xxxxxxx

This will improve the following aspects of the site:
  • xxxxxxx (you can obviously delete this for bug reports)
  • xxxxxxx

Postby docidiot on Wed Nov 05, 2008 11:27 am

this seems to be a good idea to me. of course, you could also go the other way and have a box to disallow higher ranked players (if you are scared :)).

fyi, i suspect this wont get very far if you dont use the official form.

Change the settings you are playing and you'll win more probably, unlimited on those maps you are playing is a big luck factor.

I have brought up similar suggestions (most particularly and option for "slot limits".

I don't think the issue is so much winning or losing per se... it is playing folks who have similar skills. Granted, sometimes you can learn a lot by specifically playing better players, particularly if that player is the type who will take the time to explain things.

HOWEVER, we all like to at least feel we have a reasonably shot at winning a fair amount of the time. I am not sure anyone really gains from games that were obviously won purely by luck. It is a part of the whole "random" thing, sure, but it is one thing to lose a game to a cook because you skrewed up, or they were actually better (yep, it happens!). It is something else to drop down three or four ranks you worked hard to achieve SOLELY because of luck. Allowing some limits in level might help everyone and open up more play public games.

No it wouldn't, careful thought has been put into that idea several times (there are other posts with the same point being discussed this week too) and every time it have ended in a "rejected" afaik.

It's obviously wanted - which is the reason so many private games are made with massive PM's to everyone of that rank.

It's the site's stupidity to not implement something like this - although they've made it clear they will strike it down. The host should be able to specify everything he wants about the gametype. Show me a game where someone can't do that...

been discussed many times before, i agree with the suggestion, maybe we could add a poll and walk around and tell ppl to vote and c what is the outcome. In every game that someone is in he can simply post a link to that poll in the chat box... if we were to raise enough ppl for a valid poll (say 5000) CC chiefs should discuss about it.

If it is implemented, I want to be able to exclude much HIGHER ranks.... Generally, I don't mind, but there are times when I am just not in the mood to be slaughtered without a chance.
