I apologise for the double post, but wouldn't a better suggestion be something like "New recruits can only play a maximum rank of Private 1st Class for the first 5/10 games" for example? You would make this automatic, don't ask me how , and then once they have finished 10/20 games, they can play up to a Sergeant 1st Class until they have completed 15/20 games. Then once they have played that amount of games they "unlock" the officer ranks. lol I sound like Queen_Herpes.

That sort of idea would be more feasible surely?

*edit* fastposted by Daggerheart, thanks. *edit*

I think that you are close to solution,Instead to rank segregacion, why dont create rank limitation for new NR, you all ready have rank restriction for first 5 games,right, So why dont create rank limitation for first 10 finished games,so that NR can play with maximum Lieutenant, and when these 10 game finished,then NR can play with all ranks, in these way we will avoid farming from high ranked players, and NR can get in these first 10 games,introducing with low and moderate ranks, and they can learn first steps of playing Risk in CC,instead to be invite and kick from High ranked players, who to be honest,dont want to show nothing to NR,and only want to take hes points easy. I think that in these way you will get impact into Scoreboard,and that number of active players will grow(or maybe lack are satisfy with 20000 active players?)
What you think of these?

It's a nice compromise.

The fact they are dragging their feet in resisting this is dissapointing.

Whats the point of having a suggestions scheme if the hierarchy just say no. Classic democracy and thats why people get peed off with farming both setting up and joining lower ranks. I think the owner/leader is very autocratic in this respect.

Queen_Herpes has pretty much covered this idea I believe.

Adding a "Minimun number of points required" option.

Postby JelleR on Tue Jan 25, 2011 9:10 am

I'm not a snob and I do enjoy playing games with lower ranks for sure, but sometimes I just want to match my wits with players of equal or greater skill. Now, I do have the option of seeking out a game with a password in callouts and try to get a game going that way. Its still a hassle to get the pw though and I feel that people are not using the callouts section enough.

I think a very good option would be adding the following option when creating a game:

Minimun number of points required.

You could for example put it at 1600 and everyone that matches that score would be able to join automatically. There is no need to ask for passwords or first look at the callouts section to see if there any games macthing your needs. You can do this now through the game finder option and see which games require 1600 points or more. To clarify, you should be able to change the number of points required at your convenience.

I think this benefits the community in multiple ways:

1) You can more easily play with the opponents you would like to play with, no need to send out invites or put up a post in callouts.

2) You can see more easily which games fit your criteria.

3) As a result, more games are being played.

Thoughts?

Thoughts;
Sorry to be "that guy", but I regret to inform you that similar things have been suggested countless times and ignored/rejected. We that occasionally want to be "snobs" as you so delicately put it have the option to use password protected games and post them in callouts, various user groups, or simply invite friends.

I'd say the smoothest option is finding a user-group that is dedicated to the type of games you like to play, seeking admittance and posting games there (such groups usually have a standard password for convenience, as does the point-restricted threads in call outs.)

If as you say you only do this some of the time, and otherwise play public games it shouldn't be such a huge hassle aye?
I don't know what type of games you play (can't be bothered looking lol) but personally I find that these days my many public games usually attract respectable ranks. When a cook joined a 1v1 I threw up a few days ago I almost fell off my chair, can't remember last it happened :P

I'm aware of the other options to get similar ranks in your games.

However, whenever I want to play a quick speed game on a simple map I'm simply flooded by lower ranks that are just clicking buttons. Thats not my type of fun.

I think my option "cuts out"time and saves players some hassle. You can easily find the type of game you look for by using the gamefinder and you dont have to look through dozens callout posts only to see its not your type of game or that it is already filled.

Can you link me to similar suggestions? I looked for them but couldnt find them.

In any case, thnx for your reply.

I have no objection to your suggestion, I see no great reasons why something along those lines can't be implemented, was just trying to inform you, in case you weren't aware, that it's been suggested before and will most likely be ignored/rejected so don't get your hopes up.

And sorry, I'm not interested in digging in the archives for someone else no ;) If your lucky someone else more adapt at working the search function will stop by and help you with that.

There are a couple of them that I can see at a glance in the rejected section. The main reason this gets rejected is because it isn't fair to segregate ranks. If you are truly of the rank that you have, then you should have no problem keeping it no matter the opponents. That being said, I know where you're coming from, but until a decision is made by the admins to change the rank segregation rules, it just won't go through.

Well since it keeps coming up should admin not look at changing things, as i have said on several occassions this could work in another way. Say for example a lower ranked player wants to gain experience by playing someone around his skill level, then he could set an upper limit. This would benefit them and when they get their skills up they could up their own individual limit. It does make me wonder why the powers that be are so against this? It is just an option people do not have to use it!!

as soon as they have a score they think is worth protecting they will segregate themselves from those beneath them

So you are saying that some higher ranked players on here 'never' play lower ranked players for points. Just do a games search. If u can set up a game with some options why not be allowed to set up a game with further options. Its called blue sky thinking!!
