New Recruit leaderboard

Postby mrswdk on Mon Feb 12, 2018 7:36 am

Concise description:
  • Leaderboard for new recruits only

Specifics/Details:
  • As above

How this will benefit the site and/or other comments:
  • New Recruits would get to immediately see themselves in a reasonable position on a leader board, and thereby feel like they are solid competitors rather than minnows lost on page 5,000 of the site-wide leader board
  • New Recruits could compete with their peers and see them climbing to meaningful positions. Perhaps they could be given 'form' scores that shows how much of a flying start they're off to, taking into account the points they're accumulating, ranks of people they're beating etc.
  • Would be good to have details of all the New Recruits centralized in one place

what a fucking idiotic suggestion.
first off, you're a new recruit until you complete just 5 games, so some people are just new recruits for their first day.
secondly, that's what the most improved leaderboard is for... something that is pretty much there only for low rankers.

Fantastic way to make farming newbies quick and easy. I think it's a terrible suggestion for that reason. We do not need details of newbies in one easy to find place. :lol: :lol:

If made so it's only visible to new players for the first month or two of membership? Perhaps it would have some merit.

Definitely didn't get it starting a month as colonel... like everyone... trying to start a month as low as possible. It s the only way and that ranking is already stupid enough that we don t need another one even stupider.

Everybody thinks your idea sucks because it actually sucks.

CC should make a "most retarded suggestions of all time" list.

This one would be #1

I could potentially get behind a "beginners leaderboard" where it tracks everyones first year or something, i don't think its a huge or necessarily great addition.
But something I could at least see SOME value to being added.

But yeah, NR's leaderboard is pretty silly considering the 5 game limit thing.

My point being that the people who win that medal are high rankers who deliberately shed points in order to slingshot back up, not low rankers who have a good month.

well your point is moot because most of the time they are won by actual beginners, low rankers or guys that are back on cc after very long absences. I actually won mine after being fed up of cc and not playing whatever i had left, came back a few month later and improved my shit score.
i still don't see the point of what you're asking for

Yeah, I would make it "first year or first 100 completed games, whichever comes first."

I'd be all for this if done in the way IcePack or Duk suggest. And in that case I'm not too worried about the farming/ranching -- anyone who is good enough to be on top of this list is probably decent enough/smart enough to actually learn from a game against a high ranker, even if they end up losing.
