great for farming too.

higher ranks playing for the same points as lower ranks even though their skill levels are not equal.

Greenoaks...there is always going to be farming and other forms of cheating on CC. The benefits of "betting" far exceed the drawbacks.

Yeah... and this just makes it way easier to farm.

You don't even need to consider farming. The point is that one theme which we soundly reject in this forum, is any suggestion that basically makes it possible to play a map without risking the loss of points. This more or less enables exactly that.

What about amending it like this...

Regular points... Half points... Double Points.. Cap at 100. That way there is still risk when learning a map, but not as much risk.

If we're looking for a way to practice maps with little/no risk, then I still don't see why practice games haven't been implemented yet.

This certainly isn't a feature that I would ever chose to use were it available.

Doesn't this defeat the entire purpose of the point system & score calculations? We'd be throwing the history of points out the window for a new "poker chips" system.

This is actually one of the worst suggestions I've ever seen! Legalized farming would be taken to a new stratosphere if this was to be implemented (which it never will) ! You suggest an option were it would be possible for a cook and a general to risk the same amount of points in a 1v1? Your suggestion is basically to scratch CC as we know it!
