Please explain why he was a moron? He had a lower rank than you, but beat you in a 1vs1 game where no one else can interfere or mess things up for you.

The scoreboard has a self-leveling feature for determining score. If you are a captain, and lose to a lot of people below you, then your captain rank was too high and you will obviously drop in score. If this drops your score too much, then you will start losing less and winning more which will bring your score back up. In the short run, this can cause a lot of fluctuation in score, but in the long run it starts to level you out on a "true" score for a given setting. If you can't maintain a certain score, that is no fault of the game engine or the score system or anything else. It just means your score was too high for the settings you wanted to play.

If you're really as good as your rank suggests, then you should have nothing to fear from lower-ranked players. Don't be afraid!

Rank Cared Public Games

Postby HardAttack on Sun Jun 07, 2009 8:46 pm

Concise description: I would like to have an option to play 1800+ games without setting my game private one.
  • Inviting cooks, cadets, new recruits etc are considered to be farming, right ?
  • I dont like to play against cooks, cadets, and new recruits who dont have idea what to do, how to play etc. It doesnt give any taste.
  • Private games, dont fill quick and i am forced to play always same ppl to whom i PM and invite.
  • Callouts doesnt work or works partially cos of huge portion dont read them.
  • Cooks - cadets (mainly low ranks) with the current pointing system, plays careless, plays brave cos they have nothing to lose.... I am bothered and abused by them all. With the BS dice of this site, sometimes the skills all i put in a game come not enough and i lose 70 points against a cook. What the H is that ?
  • I am a customer, i am given to make private game option. For what ? To play against whomever i want, to set my games to be what ever rank minimum games i like..Right ? Then why dont you make it easier and practical ?
  • I am sure this similar suggestion has been made, and how many times it has been made is out of my care. I simply dont care cos i am angry. I will never understand or i dont want to understand what the businesss strategy there lies behind it. I am not happy. Because low ranks are more in number, then their wishes come prior ? WTF is that. They have chance to improve themselves. Who prevents it ....

Specifics:
  • I want public minimum rank defineable games. Only players who meets the conditions will be able to join in.

This will improve the following aspects of the site:
  • Obvious it is.
  • Dont fool me.

Postby BoganGod on Sun Jun 07, 2009 9:48 pm

Yeah why has it been rejected?

Please don't drag out that old saw.... we were all cooks once. Yes, we were, I for one got my points by playing people of the same rank, that was how I learnt the game in the beginning.

- maybe don't make it real rank, possibly make it map rank. The amount of time feud games I've played in have been ruined by muppets that are just to lazy to read up about the map. Don't understand or use bombard, and suicide into someone before round 7. GRRRRRRR.
- Like hard, I'm a little bit irratated at playing the same people all the time in private games, but seems to be one of the few ways to make sure I get a good game.
- Yes I don't mind playing, even teaching some players, and I will always play some public games. Would just love to not have up to 20% of games ruined by preventable stupidity. Wanton stupidity in fact.
- Ignorance can be changed, but stupid is for ever........... A lot of players are deliberately stupid. There is a reason why my foe list is longer than a babies arm
- For the muppet "grammar" police, why not contribute something worthwhile to discusion or go back to editing your dictionary of klingon gender specific cuss words. Mouth breathers..... I tell ya

Those are informal ways of letting this happen. CC is not going to create a system to allow this to happen on a regular basis when there are several minor option already available. You'll also note that the rank related threads are not stickied. There are also social groups that contain members of similar ranks, eg. Officers and "Super Elite".

I believe that everything said on this topic. Such an application will not take place. Then i very clearly would like to state that i started foeing luetenant lower ranks who sticks in my speed games.
Whatever this is nice way or not, i dont care much.

I dont get any taste playing against low ranks. And let them take this in whatever way they like. I dont give a F

Maybe this idea is worthy of re-consideration? It is an option used with online Chess quite successfully and doesn't necessarily exclude lower ratings from competitive opportunities with skilled players.

Re: Make a rank barrier for game entry

Postby 6evil9 on Tue Jun 23, 2009 12:16 am

Absolutely agree!! I am sick of playing cooks or cadets who don't have any logic or clue what they are doing. plus i don't get many points for winning against them.

It is not a hard to implement option, but will really help to have public games for people who can play.
Maybe just a tickboxes with the ranks?
like <1100
1100-1300
1300-1600
1600-1900
etc

So for example i can tick 1300-1600 and 1600-1900 and play someone of similar calibre as myself.

Administrators, what do you think?

Re: Make a rank barrier for game entry

Postby TotoroHat on Tue Jun 23, 2009 1:45 am

This topic comes up every month or so and gets rejected every time. Not sure why people continue to bring it up. I would say if people only play people of a similar rank then no lower players would have the opportunity gain rank by defeating them. If a box was to ever be created I would suggest that only one box be created and that it limit all people playing in that game to only those under a certain score say 1300 or something low. (you would have to be under 1300 yourself to click on that box... to prevent farming)!

*YAWN*
Another thread created that is redundant and repeats an identical suggestion already made in another thread. The OP could have avoided this with a couple of forum searches. The sensible advice is to make private games and only give passwords to respondents in callouts that meet your 'rank criteria'.

Subject: Blocking System

Artimis wrote:This suggestion has already been made in a variety of reworded guises, to name but a few:

Choosing ranks that may enter your games?????
Set Rank Limits for starting games.
cap on ranks
Minimum rank to join games option
Limiting Experience level of players in a new game.
Score Limit for joining a game *previously rejected*

One of them has already been marked *previously rejected*, you guys really need to do a post search before making a suggestion. Otherwise you end up with epic duplication like this.

Suggestion: "Block Freemium" option

Postby cowboyz on Wed Jul 08, 2009 1:32 am

Concise description:
    Add a button in the user panel that will block/foe all freemiums from joining my games. It will automatically unblock/unfoe them if they upgrade to premium membership.
    Also suggested adding other block features, such as allowing players to block other players using criteria such as ratings, rank, missed turns, comments, clan etc...

Specifics:
    This is a good thing and doesn't limit the ability of freemiums to test out the site. They can still play, but only vs other freemiums, AND members who don't want to block freemiums. A foe list is TOO time consuming to manually foe each category of player, adding this feature will only add a convenient way to do what could be otherwise be done manually.

This will improve the following aspects of the site:
  • no more having noobs join my games just to ruin them while they stay an entire 2 weeks on CC before quitting.
  • no more having noobs get impatient with slow games and start shouting "SOMEBODY DO SOMETHING!1!!" in game chat
  • keeps noobs and their noobyness away from me and others who don't like being noobed.
  • allows only paying noobs to bother people
  • more money for CC since these freemiums must upgrade to play with a wider selection of players

I could see blocking the '?'s from joining your games (as they are likely to deadbeat). But some of the freemiums are very loyal. I was a freemium for a long time and had an excellent record. Once you get past your first 5 or 10 games, you're typically hooked.

Postby Halmir on Wed Jul 08, 2009 8:16 am

I like the idea, coupled with that modification. We've all suffered from freemiums joining our games then had them deadbeat even before they take a turn (well I've had it 3 times in the last couple of months that I can recall and a few times before then!). If there's a limiter that is removed once they've proved themselves (i.e completed 10 or 20 games without an auto deadbeat removal from a game, or lost the "?" rank etc) then this sounds fair & fine.
