Here's the place to discuss anything related to TMF ladder ranking, special "ladder servers", rank limit rules and possible issues you might have with this system.

WHAT IS NADEO DOING ??????

Post by The Foks » 31 Aug 2008 19:18

i'm playing TM for years, TMNF since april...
I love the game, but its more liking that i liked the original TMN more than TMNF.... WHY?
I got 86000 points and now its very boring to play.
Nadeo blocks new servers which allow players with 90K.
I see that players with 90K don't play anymore cause they can't get higher anymore.
I almost have 90K, and now its already boring to play, cause almost nobody with a higher rankings play.
Lower rankings are proud to play in "higher" servers but is sucks a lot for players who want to move on in the game.
What is Nadeo about to deal with this problem?
If this goes on nobody will ever want to play the game...
Plz let the gamefun in the game as we got in the previous version!!!!!

TM grtz!

IMO this is a crap system that is removing all the fun of the game! :grmblz: I Today, in a 3 hours attempt, i only managed to play 20m and earned a stuning 65 pts, pffff, 1 week waiting for this. Plz change the system! Revolution! :gobananas:

Well they could reintroduce point deduction for losing to lower ranked players.

Personally i think the whole play for two hours on a sunday thing is a farce.

Controlling points by simply not giving any out is no solution to a ladder imho.

Minus points please :gobananas:

I must say I kinda agree...
Yesterday I didn't even bother trying to get in on a 80-100k server, just saw that they were packed with spectators. As the situation is now with 100k servers only open 2 hours on sunday and always full I don't care much about the ladder anymore (would be fun to play at one though).

Thank god there are other ways to enjoy the game. Ladders, TMX or just playin for fun with your friends. :D

3 hours. And most 100k servers have queuing systems and loserkicking now, to rotate players.

Even though, its a crapy system. Imagin that i waited for 1 h to enter the server, but in the game i dont know very well that track, or i have a not good race because bad luck ( we all have better days then others, right? )? Then at the end, im kicked, didnt managed to get any points, and then, to try my luck again, i will have to wait one more hour to get in the server and take another shoot? This is tottaly senseless. :roflol:

I must admit I'm no where near even 90k yet, but only playing on a Sunday afternoon seems crazy - don't people have things to do on a lovely Sunday afternoon?!

I sure hated the old points deduction system, only because I used spend hours earning hundreds of points (which in the old ladder was a lot), only the next day to have a negative points difference, because the players at the top can play twice as long.

It's also annoying that after 60k I can no longer play on my favourite servers (i.e. Mistrals) if I want to gain points. Now one has to choose between a good ranking or good company and tracks.

I'm sure there are better solutions (no points on tracks where all players finish within .1secs, as a quick example), but for now I think it is better than is was, even if it is fatally flawed at the higher points levels.
