there's VERY few servers out their where i can play for points and enjoy it at the same time,
most of the maps are crap and im not gonna queue for a server for 20mins with half decent maps :/

I'm sure a a new rank system could be put in place where a players ability could be judged a lot better than it currently is, cant think of anything off the top of my head and i'll be honest.. i cant be arsed right now :P but i'll have a think and make a new thread concerning it shortly, if anyone is interested?
The last months i occasionally thought about that issue.

Since we would be off topic discussing a different ladder system here, i collected my thoughts
about an improved ladder system and put it in this thread.

re: wins/losses ...

They are only accurate if only you play the profile ... many of my friends play my profile (most of them slow) so this make it very inaccurate ^^

And occam i like your ideas ... but no matter what system .. be it solo , leagues or multiplayer ladder ,,, they ALL are contributed to by time ... be it time to practice or time to play TIME is the main factor of any scorboard and no system can remove this as all of what we do takes time.

Perfection of this is a dream basically :wink:

Jamie, of course you are right and no system would render the factor time unimportant.

But maybe it would be possible to determine the skill of a player faster. I answered you fully here: viewtopic t=19087

Loosing LP and ranking.
I'm playing Nations Forever.
I left my computer for 3 days, and when I came back I had lost over 3000 LP and over 1000 in ranking (20 local).
I went from 76 K to 73, and ranking 3400 to 4600.
That's a lot in 3 days :ftw:
How could this happen?

I'm getting hammered ever week now. last week i lost 3600LP, and this week it was a little over 3100.

is being on or around the 80k mark a bad place for this?

Well, if you race for ladder points and think its unfair to loose points then you simply
need to win more. I play 3 hrz every sunday and i manage to keep my rank, or i even climb the
ladder. I gain more points then i loose.

I think the current ladder is the best so far in the TM games, but i still think TMU players
should be even more awarded. Cos i miss ppl playing tmu, and giving tmu players even more
benefits would bring more players to tmu... maybe..
