Average points count of enemies in Profile Page

Postby Inhuman14 on Sat Nov 22, 2008 12:07 am

Concise description:
  • This suggestion would add the average points count of all enemies fought alongside the % of games won on everyone's profile.

Specifics:
  • Pretty much self-explanatory, this would post the average points count of enemies fought.
  • This would also be improved by the idea that has been floated of an average # of players in each match alongside the % of games won.
  • A separate rank order of the top 100 players that fight the lowest average point count. A wall of noob farming, if you will. You see where I'm getting at, here. The conqueror label would still be under the old conditions.
  • This would not work ex-post facto - This would only take into account the games won from the point of installment.

This will improve the following aspects of the site:
  • LESS NOOB FARMING
  • More competitiveness among the higher ranks to fight better and better opponents and win.

This would accomplish absolutely nothing.

I foe a lot of cooks because I hate playing with cooks. What does that say about me? They end up joining my games - I don't want them.

A lot of other noob farmers foe all the high ranks because they don't want competition.

Then should I be scared now to foe other high ranks I dislike for fear of this? Etc.

Baddd idea.

Interesting concept...

I like this idea of cutting down on noob farming better than your other ones. Like the Turns Taken %, it likely won't do much in the ways of actually affecting points or anything, but it allows everybody to see if you beat up on low ranked players or play evenly matched games.

The only question I have is, will the average points count of enemies be constantly updating as your past foes score changes, or is the number you played them at the number that is always registered?

Oh... well there are already many topics about this isn't there? And it's already in map rank if you want to use it, just look at relative rank.

This would only be a fair comment on the people who join games last and choose who they're playing against. I play a lot of sequential doubles, hardly noob farming, sometimes my games fill up with high rankers, and sometimes identical settings will not fill until the games hit the front page and the cooks find them. I started a game on Forbidden City because it's new and looks interesting, only joiners (apart from my partner) are three cooks. Does this make me a farmer? I think not.
I think this stat would be worthless information, drowned by random noise of who joins after you!
Or is it intended to help the high ranks who only play passworded games in fear of a private taking all their points? Those people are almost as bad as the farmers.

As if you had any idea what the hell you're talking about. That has nothing to do with fear of losing points - if you had any knowledge of hte game you'd realize that. If you can't compete at their skill level, you won't win at least 1/8 of your games, I assure you. Then you'd drop out of the point range.

100% true. Some people play these high ranked games, because they find beating cooks and the like no fun anymore. Some people want to play the best there is. No fault of them. BTW this idea is not going to change much. We all know who farms, and who does not. For those who do not know they can ask, and 50 people will tell you who. This would be hard to manage if you ask me, and would only push people further away on this site.

If I'm not wrong, "MAP Rank" add-0n has it. There is a "Relative Rank" in the rightest column. Maybe the developer can split it to two columns, 1 for Winning and 1 for Losing

Wow you guys seem to have taken a lot of offence to my light hearted closing comment. Considering the topic starter isn't exactly high rank, I didn't exactly believe that was the real reason!

I'll assume everyone agrees with the serious stuff I wrote then!

I'm not sure that (differentiating between games started and games joined) can be figured out easily. I know it looks like it's easy to tell who is who, the game logs only record who starts play, and the order after that. So you won't be able to access the numbers from archived games, unless you look at each one individually.

On the other hand, I don't think it matters who you intended to play against, just who you actually play. If you make 10 games, and cooks join 9 of them, then that's the level of competition you're facing. If you really wanted to play against officers, you could join a tournament or start private games. Map rank will tell you the actual (relative) levels of your opponents.

Re: Average points count of enemies in Profile Page

It seems to be working along the principles of Denunciation, which is the theory behind shaming penalties. Shaming penalties work by expressing the community's moral condemnation of an act (in this case, noob farming), which instills a sense of shame in the offender and lowers his or her social status.

The problem with this theory in this particular situation is twofold.

1. The larger part of the Conquer Club community that goes to the forums will have seen that noob farming is going on, and will know about who has been "guilty" of the act. I would think it is hard to hear about noob farming in the forums, and not also hear who are the ones doing it.

Those people who do not go to the forums will not be affected by this at all. A noob farmer generally plays either very low ranks (in the individual case of JOHNNYROCKET24), or new recruits. Seeing as those people who do not go to the forums would probably not go around looking into people's profiles, only those who the farmers are playing would see the statistics and find something new (the rest of us know who is farming).

Not only do they generally not have access to the people's profiles, but those who do not go to the forums, will have little or no idea about what noob farming is, and I doubt they will care that much when they find out either.

So, let us consider the average new recruit that has a game joined by a farmer, seeing as that is the only type of person who will have access to the person's profile and may potentially care. As we can see by looking into any farmer's games played, only a very small portion of new recruits actually stay at the site long enough to complete even 5 games. This shows a rate of apathy, or dislike for the site. Few people choose to stay here after the first few games, as we can see by the several hundred thousand members of the site compared to the less than 20 thousand that are active. So in effect, the person who will see this statistic and learn about the player's game history will quit the site anyways.

2. If shaming penalties work by instilling a sense of shame and lowering the offender's social status, they can only be effective with those who care about the loss of social status and have some status to lose.

So, the question needs to be asked, how does one earn a status in Conquer Club? The answer, whatever that may be, is not by farming. A typical farmer is still well known in Conquer Club for that fact, but I have not seen them being given much respect or what you might call a "status" for some reason.

Therefore, since there is no status to lose. The whole theory of a shaming penalty will not work.

You might say that they do hold a status because of their high ranks, and I will agree. However, looking over the suggestion, I do not see anything that would take away their rank. If you still think that the shame by their average rank of opponent statistic will remove this "status" in the community, I suggest re-reading the first part of this post.

Now, it would be wonderful if someone actually took the time to read that.

I think that the chief point of my suggestion is that it would provide a second type of leadership board - those who truly have the skill to play and beat high ranked players.

For those who think that the shame is a bad idea, it's only shameful if they think it is. They could keep noob farming as much as they want. This won't stop them. They'll still have their conqueror label. It just shows people who really earned their rank and who didn't.

I think the community of conquer club needs to decide, on a fairly rapid basis, the direction of this site when it comes to noobs farming. I don't see anything wrong with advanced players playing against newer players for fun, but earning higher ranks based on their ability to cream the worthless and clueless just doesn't seem right somehow.

Another point is that while we can't see who does and does not noob farm, the people who do diminish the ranks of those around them that don't.

Are you telling me that you do not know who farms and who doesn't? I have trouble believing you do not.

If yes, then disregard everything I said above.
If no, then please re-read the part explaining that those who don't know have a very high chance of not caring.
