Re: blocking specified ranks and below

Even though 3 stars are suppose to be average, everyone looks at 5 stars as being acceptable. It makes it nice to play equal ranks so that when you lose, you don't lose 70 points and if you win all you get is 7. I know, I know, private games. that gets old after awhile.

come on, give me the option to block the ranks i want to avoid.


discussed several times, search is your friend... go to suggestions and fill out a form, if you are serious about it... GOOD LUCK!!!..-6cd

Won't ever happen.

lackattack don't want to discreminate players because of rank. Which is very understandable. If you want to play with people of a particular rank. Then play private games.

Meh,

He once said he wanted to 'keep rank out of the forums', but now we're all wreathed with clouds of medals and have ranks displayed next to our usernames.

If enough high-rankers make enough noise about the absence of a 'class-filter', then it'll get done (or at least get put onto the to-do-list of things that don't get done).

I suggest you click on every single person's profile, and foe them each individually.

I would tell you how to foe pretty much all cooks and cadets in under 5 minutes (unless you have a really crappy computer... this does work owen, since I have done it... takes a whole lot longer to undo though, so no "just not true" comments this time), but I agree with the other posters, not going to happen, and there is no use for it.

Rating Filter For Game Hosts

Postby Rekatan on Fri Nov 28, 2008 2:26 pm

I host a lot of speed games and rarely have a 4.4> player that sticks out the game. It either ends with a suicide or a deadbeat. If not that then the player is simply unpleasant to play with.

It'd be very helpful if we could set some parameters as hosts for who is and isn't allowed to play in a game based on rating.

This would not only provide more enjoyable games but also would give more weight to the rating system as a whole, and consequently improve many player's attitude towards the game as they strive to avoid a low rating.

Game Finder with average scores of the players in the game

Postby letitrock on Fri Dec 19, 2008 6:11 pm

Request to Add game finder (search) option with the average scores of the players in the game

Specifics:
I saw the recent changes (updates) in game finder that now you can search the games with the participant user. That is very good but what I would like to suggest is

Some kind of search functionality that find the average score of the users currently in the game.

So for example, it is a 4 player game and there are currently 2 players with scores 1000 and 500, the average score will be ( 1000 + 500) / 2 = 750 points.

And, if I put the search criteria to search the games with average points between 700 and 1000 points (for example), that particular game will show up ( because it point is 750 ).

What do you guys think?

Postby The Neon Peon on Fri Dec 19, 2008 6:54 pm

I personally just look through the games by hand and do not join if the average rank is under captain at least. But it would be helpful.

Still leads to too much rank segregation.

I think this is a good idea, but what about the people with only a few ratings? Isn't it kind of unfair if you run into one of those people who leaves all 1s and maybe a couple of them to have a 4.4 rating?

Postby Fireside Poet on Sun Jan 04, 2009 10:15 pm

There could be a base number built in, such as ratings with players who have played 50 games or something like that - not sure where the boundary would be, but this would be a great way to have the ratings actually have some sort of cause and effect... I have a 3.8 cook in a speed game right now that has already deadbeated out and if there was a way to weed out someone like that, I'd be all for it.

I like it, I also second this suggestion.

Perhaps it will also encourage good players with bad attitudes to mend their ways if they thought their lack of manners and etiquette would have consequences for their eligibility to join ratings restricted games........

a way of adding everyone of a certain rank

Postby Jeff Hardy on Tue Jan 06, 2009 12:36 pm

Concise description:
  • a way of adding everyone of a certain rank to foe list, or at least making them unable to join

Specifics:
  • you can type in the rank that should be foed rather than the names of the players

This will improve the following aspects of the site:
  • people like porkenbeans and farang demon cant bitch at innocent high ranks for having a low relative rank
  • low ranks can choose to play other low ranks by adding high ranks to the list

Terrible idea.

I lost to a cook a few weeks ago. Played him again yesterday; he was almost above a Captain.

Rank doesn't mean squat.

Because you have people that think this site should be more "fair". Where the dice should play no part and it should be 100% skill. Which is not ConquerClub (almost typed in RISK :P)

Ignore their bitching. The Foe list is your friend.

Another option would be to open up ready rooms a.k.a. game lounges based on ranks of the players.
It would be a safe place for players of their own rank to organize and join games.
Access to the games would only be allowed by those who fit into the ranking parameters.Much like the officers club or sgt.'s club etc..
All newbies would be allowed to only join games in these rooms til they either gain a certain rank thus keeping safe from the farmers.
Higher ranked players don't have to worry about who joins their games.
Not all games would have to be made in these ready rooms but it could assure that higher ranked players could not join them because they would not have access to these rooms.

Minimum Skill Level For Games

Postby jtrydz on Sun Jan 11, 2009 11:42 pm

Why not let players creating games determine a minimum level (Number or rank) to join the game? As a 2400 point major, I am sick of creating games and seeing them fill up with cooks, cadets, and privates. These players have little grasp of appropriate strategy and often times ruin the game blindly attacking for no apparent reason. Additionally, many lower level players have admitted to a strategy whereby they specifically target the higher ranked players, irrelevant of the current game status. The theory goes that if they lose to a player of similar stature, they don't lose a ton of points... but if they win, they gain a lot more points by having beaten the higher ranked player - so all low ranked players should immediately try and take out the higher ranked players. This strategy is unfair to the higher ranked players, yet I see it employed often.

Why can't I setup a game that you need to be a Sergeant or above to join? Surely this additional modification would not require intense code changes and it would offer encouragement for players to reach higher skill levels while allowing those at the higher skill levels to compete with players of like ability. Certainly you could add criteria that the highest rank you can specify is at, or just below your own level...

Just make private games and invite the people you want to join. In addition in the callouts forum there are threads for games for people with 1800+, 2000+, 2500+ and perhaps a few others also, if you want games with people your rank this is one way to get them.

Great idea! Once again posted. Look at my games over the last 3 months. After having pissed off someone two weeks ago I get noobs that join one game, never take a turn and ruin the speed of the game. Of course they always join with in secs/minutes of each other. They get foed but still doesn't keep him from doing in every game I have going.

It needs to be an option. If you don't like the option don't join the game.
