Minimum score requirement

Postby ATLBravosfan on Sat Sep 15, 2018 11:38 pm

Concise description:
  • A new option when creating a game - you can set a minimum score requirement to join

Specifics/Details:
  • The concise description is pretty self-explanatory. When you decide to create a game, there will be an option to set a minimum score requirement. You can have no limit or you can set a limit if you wish.

How this will benefit the site and/or other comments:
  • This will allow players with higher scores to play against opponents that they are more likely to want to play against. For example, we all know that there is an element of luck involved in this game - from the rolls to the initial deployment. I do not like playing against very low ranked players 1v1 because I stand to lose a lot of points and only gain a few. I don't mind playing with lower ranked players in a large player map if there are other high ranks in there because the potential for points to be gained outweighs the possibility of losing a lot of points.

You need to explore other maps. You have a Brigadier rank but you are only 10 maps wide on experience. (I map ranked you and literally you are only 10 maps wide on maps that generate you points.) I fail to see how encouraging people to specialize on only a few maps helps the site at all. If this was something that went with a requirement that one has a gold cross map medal (5 unique wins on 100 maps), then I could see it. But otherwise it would just encourage people to play only a couple maps. It is bad enough that we end up with a Conqueror that is a specialist not infrequently. Perhaps grant this to someone who has at least 5000 games played. But I cannot see how it benefits the site as stated.

Not telling people how to spend their time. I am commenting on the section of the post about how it would benefit the site. I have my opinion, and opinions, are like ... Everyone should have one. And I do and apparently some more to comment on my comments.

The main reason why I don't think this will get implemented is because there is an option to create private games.

In private games, you control who plays your games. I think this is the main idea of what you are trying to get across.

EDIT: I'm not trying to suggest that your idea is a bad idea, it's just that it has already been somewhat implemented in a different way.
