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.

Upset About New System -- Why???

Post by TheBrickYard » 14 Nov 2008 06:55

Here's my deal: I'm 32, have a good job, don't have 24/7 to play. I'm damn good at this game. Been racing video games since Collecovision. I was at 82k when the "new system" started. I get over 80k ever weekend, but don't get to race much during the week. AND IT PISSES ME OFF!!!! Now there is a log jam for the good rounds servers. It costs money to open a ranked srvr for anyone w/ a decent rank to get pts, but nadeo's going to let everyone who plays constantly get high. I know, "your rank doesn't change". But all of a sudden there are all kinds of people trying to get into the same srvrs ALL the time, and i've lost places in my state to people I was destroying. This new system is BS. Give us something better!!!

basically what i'm thinking, is let there me more "ranked" rounds servers. Put up some more "nadeo" servers that people don't have to pay for. So that people like me don't have to spend an hour waiting to get on a server that we can actually get points on. I mean, I go on other servers and give some of my pts away. But at the same time, I want to be able to get some pts when I actually have time to play. If you're going to limit us, at least give some of us a place to play.

Hi,

I don't think it's too bad, it just needs a bit of tweaking:

1. More servers needed. This will happen pretty quickly now as more admins amass the required coppers.

2. The time slot for 100K servers is really bad. This needs to be amended to allow for good/great players who can't play during the current limited times.

Regards,

Nick.

drop my lot in here.

hey brick. its SAW nico

Many of our players are international.. ie Ozzy in Australia - he kills the tracks and is always Zzz in RoC times.

There also must be a way to counter this. i.e leave it the freak open. I agree with the coppers too, took many many months for a strong TMUF account team to accumulate.

ion the side I get 400 points in roc.. thought this was good and the 1k removed. This means we need over 1k in RoC times per week just to gain LP. bleh

Good races + game on for the love

i agree with your 2nd point yorkshire...
8 players.....16 spec....1 rot kick...100k once a week ....wait 1 and a half hours in queue, then get in when its a race you are not so good at and BANG you are gone again...
its a fecking joke NADEO and im really pissed off that i've spent over 100 euros on full game accounts for me and the kids....the game and ladder was far better before the update imo...
i appreciate alot of work went into the update...but for me the game is no fun anymore...
i get to 90k by monday evening, then make a bollix on sunday of one race....dont get enough points to get into top 100..and guess what i'm back to 89k again...
same shite every week....well for me at least i can now catch up on a few new games....
tx for the memories tmuf ....apart from the last couple of weeks it was fun....later all....i wont be back until the rules chage.... :|

Then you're not fast enough or didn't play enough to get enough points to break into the top 100. Get over it...

Just pretend 90k is the top of the ladder then, I suppose.

nope, top1000 is "have a lot time to play, even more then some others which might be better"

top100 is "still have a lot of time but also got a lot of points in the 3hours RoC" which means u are not last in the round but also not necessarily the best all the time. of course u only can get more points then all others if u are better. but still the time matters more than beeing good. a good player have to have the time to play the whole time to be at the top and the best.
just my opinion. :)

Actually, this Sunday they hit a record number of connected TMUF players:

So stop spouting your uninformed nonsense please.

Also, it may not bring the best players on top, but it sure brings better players on top than the old system did.

Well, basically, they are turning the "top tier" aka people without a life, into tm's "pro league". they say its to keep the "boosting" down, but tbh i havent seen people doing that since the old TMN.

I was #1 or top 5 in AZ for a long time, then forever and the cap came out, and with my limited playing time, im lucky if im in the top 20 now. I complained about this since it began, but evidently Nadeo has made up their mind, so be it.

I am no longer concerned with the rankings...im at just over 50k (been there for months) and that is probably will it will stay. (no way im getting up at 2-3am just to get on the "special" servers).

Currently running a 0-60k and 2 20-70k servers, but the ladder as its set now will always favor the young europeans and thats just the way it is.

So have fun, try and make the best of it...i really doubt its going to change anytime soon.
