I realy dont see how these could be use like strategical informacion?

Pure statistics are renowned for telling us exactly nothing though, qwert. ;)
That's basically my point here.

And we've got to deal with your irrelevant, baseless ad hominem attacks betiko. I'm not being negative, this is just not a very useful or meaningful thing to enact.
For the record I support a lot of suggestions so there goes your whole negativity theory. It's evident that you don't like me but that doesn't make your arguments any more sound. If you would keep your emotions out of your posts a little more you might notice reason filling in the gaps in your logic.

my logic is that tons of players write down their high scores on their page, that in most games you have your high score tracked somewhere but not here. Regarding battle royale winners be it. when you join a battle royale you have almost no chance of winning, and it does require a part of luck but also good strategy and timing, not anyone could win a battle royale, I know I suck at it.

This shouldn't be very complicated to implement nor take tons of programmer ressources.

Well if it's a mere flick of the wrist as far as programming goes I don't suppose I would strongly object. I'm still not in favor of it though, for reasons already stated.

I think its a very nice idea and looks simple.
Both the lower and the higher.
I dont really know whats my best score ever, neither my worst time in CC, but i would love to know it

( i do know how to do it, i just think its a pitty that many plugins that community users developed arent used by default in CC)

Not everyone has map rank and not everyone can get map rank. For some it takes map rank ages to load with the amount of games played.

Re: Show highest attained rank on profile

I wonder if everyone having their high score displayed would be good because I could know if this 2200 player is a 3700 player in disguise, or in fact bad because this 3700 player is actually little more than a 2200 player in disguise, for the little scoundrel maxed his score on some ridiculous freestyle 1vs1 setting and so his current score is a far more accurate representation of what he is playing now.

What is score?

Score is a representation of how well you are winning right now. It shows how well you are playing on your current settings and I would suggest that at any given moment your current score is a far better guide to how well you are going to play in a current game, rather than one's high score, which if your current score is much lower than your high score then it would suggest you are far from as good at the game you are playing at this moment, than the game at which you achieved such glories.

Confused? (I know I am)

When we drop our ranks in pursuit of other goals (and I have done this), we are invariably not dominating games as much as we do on our regular settings. Medal chasers must spend an enormous amount of time playing badly, on maps and settings they barely understand, and this is why their ranks drop through the floor. Now medal chasers don't like this (and it is quite possible the falling rank is the masochistic element of medal-chasing enjoyment) and so may well feel the need to demonstrate 'I am still good really...look, I was a colonel!!!'. But sadly, you medal chasers out there, when you have a score of 1550 at any given moment that is how good at CC you are, that score is the most accurate representation of your current playing ability.

Feeling unloved?

Now don't think I don't sympathise, I really, really do. But you see I am coming at this from the perspective of trying to consider whether we should pay more attention to current score, high score, or something else all together. It seems to me that displaying a high score from 2010 (when I set mine) is a demonstration of what you were and not what you are, that displaying it is actually a sign of weaknesses for it is declaring to the cc-world an insecurity about how well you are playing now. That posted high score to an extent says to me "I'm a really good player, just on different settings, I'm chasing medals, I'm trying out new things, I'm going through some personal shit right now, I've taken on too many games and am sitting for two others, or anything else that means that at the moment I am a shadow of the player I once was".

Accept yourself

My score now is a perfectly accurate representation of how good a player I am on the settings I am currently playing. My high score goes back to a time when I made large standards and dubs look easy and I really was very good back then at what I did. No doubt everyone's high score reflects a time when they were at their best. My current score suggests that I am getting back to where I once was, but it also demonstrates that at what I am playing now, I am not as good as at what I was playing then.

Yes! If you are chasing some medal it stands to reason that you are exploring new areas of the game and therefore are not currently very skilled at what you do. That's your decision and you need to live with your choices. Basically, you can't have your cake and eat it too.

The real problem I have with this suggestion(and the points system in general) is regarding vanity. Players are constantly looking for "trophies" that raise their status(justifiably or not) above others. Qwert mentioned that he intended the suggestion to be just another way of compiling data but I don't think this is the motivation of most players wanting this update. Players want some sort of status symbol that they can carry around wherever they go in cc, regardless of how poorly they may be currently playing. This is nothing but misplaced vanity. A conqueror of lands is first and foremost a soldier and any soldier worth his salt would reject this notion as immaterial.

Like i said earlier, i know how to see it. But also like i said before, its a pitty that most of CC users dont know the existance of such tools. (i would guess 90%)
Some of them , in my opinion should be implemented as default by CC.

At least something similar should be implemented in the scoreboard...it does not have to be in the users profile.

I mean...HIGH SCORE is the most important thing in every game in the world..lolol
U can be playing a F1 game and try to go for your best track time or u playing Chuckiegg and try to beat your best score ever.
Its a common thing in videogames

So you dont care about the points you have?never looked at the scoreboard to see where u are?im cool with that...But i like that and tons of people like those kind of things.
