Medal idea: greatest point increase for a day/ week/ month

Postby what,me worry? on Sat Dec 01, 2012 3:13 pm

Concise description:
  • New medal for greatest point increase for a time period or for a winning streak

Specifics/Details:
  • Medal would be awarded to a member based on an increase in points for a time period. The increase could be based on raw points, percentage of increase, or whatever formula we can come up with. Another idea would be to have a medal for a 10 game win streak in various styles of play (quads/trips/dubs/ single)

How this will benefit the site and/or other comments:
  • I feel the number of games created and played would increase. The more medals the better IMHO. Owning this medal would show who was the "hottest" player(s) that day.

don't really like it, people would "save" their winners and get rid of all of their losers, there has already been a few suggestions of such medal or similar.

What if you just play games, try to lose everything untill a low certain number. But still putting effort in and and so not able to be banned. Then just play speed games all day and get back up!?

Or what the guy before me said, stack up your wins, even though youll have to be looking out for holding hostage etc!

but yes, that's the other dumb thing. a high ranked isn't going to win much in a day but a low rank can, so this just encourages eople to do the yoyo. a good underrated player can go back up really easy. I just don't see any interest in encouraging this. there are plenty of other medals that would be much more interesting in this forum.

So go with the win streak idea then. 10 wins in a row or something like that.

Again, you have to keep in mind people will play the same people over and over again. Either that or they will hold out on the final winning turn to get more games in a row.

Yeah, unfortunately there are too many ways to artificially create a winning streak/short term point increase.

I'm with the dissenters here. Of all the medal ideas out there, this wouldn't be one that I'd get too excited about.
