The new scoreboard has these features:
- displays medal counts (originally suggested by Coleman)
- preserves the position # when you filter for a user (originally suggested by Fieryo)
- allows filtering by country (originally suggested by Dlakavi)
- sortable by various criteria (originally suggested by argyll72)
Ties are now given the same position #. In other words, if you and someone else are tied for 5th place, you both get a 5 and the next player gets a 7. Tied players are listed alphabetically.
To add these features without impacting server performance, the scoreboard will no longer be "live" and will be updated every hour like the Conqueror position.
Hopefully these changes will help you better understand how you place against the competition. It may even help you find fellow countrymen to play with!
After studying web proxy use for several months we've discovered that much less than 1% of our membership visits Conquer Club through web proxies and a large portion of this proxy use is by members with multiple accounts. We decided to block access to Conquer Club through web proxies to help our multi hunters enforce the rules and keep out the bad guys.
Unfortunately some members who use proxies legitimately to get past firewalls at school or work will be affected. We regret this side effect and hope those affected end up with better grades and promotions to make up for this
Map XML Enhancement
To provide you with new challenging maps and to keep things interesting for map makers, we'll be making single enhancements to the map XML format on a regular basis.
To begin with, we've expanded the objective to include continents. This will lead to maps with more flexible winning objectives like "hold 60% of the world". For more information about map development, please visit the Map Foundry.
this is by far the best update since the new medals were established last year.
