Set Rank Limits for starting games.

Postby anomalystream on Sun Feb 08, 2009 8:36 am

I want to suggest that when starting games, members should be able to set minimum and maximum limits for rank that other members must meet to join.

EXAMPLE:

Set Rank Limit:
Minimum Rank: Corporal 1st Class
Maximum Rank: Captain

Therefore to join this game you must at least be a Corporal 1st Class, and at most be a Captain.


In addition, I feel Premium Members should be able to exclude non-premium members from joining games they create, and non-premium members should not be able to rank Premium Members.

It is very potentially extremely destructive to a members ranking if when they start games, any member of any rank can join any number of games a member has created. So members should be able to limit rank, exclude non-premium members, and prevent a single member from joining multiple games a member has created.

I agree with that... I usually join a game when there is just one or two more spaces left so it will start fast, but that because surfing through all the games and looking for something that will be with players of my caliber, or just going through private games and and asking everyone if it's friend private or ranks private game can take a day or two at best... last time I started a game there was not one player that was equal to my rank, and my rank ain't that high...

I think you missed the "private password" option when you start the game...
And overall I don't think that you paying premium means you're a better player, which means maybe you are the one who actually put my (any freemium) rank at risk...

1.Increases rank segregation.
2.Just because a player is freemium doesn't mean they're not good.

there is a dilemma jeff, a dilemma between politics and trends...
as i stated above, i have made this suggestion in my very early days when i was in ADC and you were there as well. That much early. Nothing to do with ADC, anyways i am told that (i dont remember who told it) such a mechanism wud decrease the desirability of the site cos if this happens new recruits will not have anyone to play and new recruits are those whom we can call them as new customers... Understand me ? That is the dilemma. And i completely agree it that what it is made in private games is nothing different from having same ranks in game, and then why dont we have such a property ? But no, the reason i stated above is the obstacle in front of this idea.

What about just a ratings parameter, then? People might feel more comfortable joining team games if they knew they wouldn't end up being stuck with some jerk for a teammate.

Ummmm....

There IS a difference between a cook and a General. Did Michael Jordan ever play high school kids in his prime....or even toddlers.

A Field Marshall / officer should be able to play "public" games against other officers. Check out the "Officers' Lounge" thread!

Start a game option

Postby Harley_Zizo on Fri Mar 06, 2009 8:21 am

Hi there !

I really have a request/suggestion.

Please ADD a Minimum Rank button under the Start a New Game Option.. Pleaaaaaaase.

Would be a great feature and I am sure that most of the good players will agree.

Thanks,
Harley

Thank you for the answer, but i still believe this option should be reconsidered. It will sure eliminate a lot of problems.

Playing against higher ranking players is how new players gain experience. Why should that experience be restricted just because higher ranking players assume the new players will deadbeat? If you want only high ranking players, go private!

Make a rank barrier for game entry

Postby Shai on Tue Mar 17, 2009 5:20 am

Concise description:
  • Give the option for minimum score required to join game - this way officer mess games can be public and not risk being plagued by newbies, low rankers etc.

Specifics:
  • just place a check box for under / over 1600 points, or even a specific rank number

This will improve the following aspects of the site:
  • No risk of newbies or deadbeats ruining a game
  • Easier to implement the "turn the game to public" issue - if a few highrankers want to take on the newbs :)
  • More diverse officer mess games, where evryone can rumble

since you're premium, just make private games and ask ppl to pm you if they want the password...
and I'm still against rank segregation, I like playing with any rank anytime...

Well, the answer got 2 parts:

1- It ain't about being deadbeat. From my experience, the new players turn vindictive and mess games up. Not to mention using rating option after the game as sort of vengeance.
In many of higher players cases, the points won in a game with 3+ ranks lower players are less than the number of points lost.

2- Why not playing private ? Try starting a private game and tell me how fast it will fill. I like to play speed games whenever I have the time, and it is basically almost impossible to have players fill the seats in 1 or even 3 hours.

I believe there must be a solution for those issues, if not with adding the ranking options, maybe using a different sort of points scored (win or loss)

Thanks,

If there aren't any high ranking players who want to play speed games, how would this filter help at all? If the players are there, then make a private game and PM them. Keep a list of people you've played, and message all of them when you want to play. Works well.

The thing is that good player tend to stay away of games with lower ranked players (meaning, once a low ranked player joins a speed game I start, most of higher rated players stay away)
As for keeping on messaging other players to join a private game, I believe that this is considering spamming and is against the rules.

Choosing ranks that may enter your games?????

Postby GreazzzzMaster on Sat Apr 25, 2009 9:47 pm

just an idea i came up with....


when you are starting a game, there could be a drop down menu that allows you to choose what ranks may enter your games
or what ranks and higher.

i feel like this will eliminate getting noobed due to unfair drops or unlucky dice or something

might be a terrible idea but i definitely wish it was there

would push people into higher ranks and make for some good scoreboard battles i think.


just thinking out loud






thanks for the time,
Greazzzz

I think this is a horrible Idea. If you play team games and you have that option, it would prevent lower ranks (Privates, Cadets, Cooks, Recruits) From ever finding a match. Eventually causing them to give up and quit.

They wouldn't be able to play each other? Lord knows they could always play me, since I'm perpetually stuck below Sergeant.
