WTF? You say you're not a booster in the pf sense of the word and I accept that, but if you're serious about this then clearly you care about this way too much. I didn't even know about this ladder ****, but now I do... I don't give a damn. Doesn't affect the records does it? Just play the game, or have some serious thoughts about whether its the game or the points tha tmakes it fun.
I was very angry when I typed that. If I meant it, I wouldn't have posted the screenie =D
Of course I'm not quitting, **** the ladder in its entirety and I'm proud of the fact I got my rank through pure skills (besides that million-ish points that put me into w#1 for the night). I got my share of recs on servers and **** and I'm happy to be able to beat people's times.
All I ask is my rank isn't qiped compleely. I earned 62,000 points through pure work... so yeah. O_o;
I will make a very honest and serious point - from what Dr.Grip and someone else said on the earlier pages.
I am NOT a booster. In my fullest and honest opinion, boosting is pointless; not only is it a waste of time, but it requires no skill and no input (usually) and all it does is create a false sense of skill when in fact you have no bite to back up the bark, if you get what I mean.
Of course, because of that, I have a certain amount of 'pride', shall I put it, in my rank. Because all these 'boost 1000!!1111111toeen' servers with 50-ish people PFing make it difficult to get a low rank in the game - it requires skill to out-score a booster, and time too, and I have pride in knowing I am capable of, basically, kicking so much race-ass that I can get the points. I fully understand the ladder is corrupt; It's been that way since I started playing the game, but it's just the fact I have never really cheated the system in any way and that I am one of few who are able to earn the ranks they have and are able to back it up with the relevant driving skill.
So I can be fully understood to be angry when a bug occurs which sees millions of points per race given to people that can't even drive? Of course I am. Only in the reason that my hard-earned rank is suddenly demolished by utter race-noobs who probably don't know what an accelerator pedal is. I was so angry that , as beforesaid, I threatened myself to leave the game.
I'm not going to do that - one day later, and I've remembered again what the ladder is. Nothing. And I am just ignoring it.
Maybe I was wrong in the threat and my view, and my intent of action but I can't take away the fun of seeing 'Mac[z] has taken the 1 server record' in maps and laughing because I beat someone who put up a very good fight to get the rec I beat. That is what kept me racing and that's what always will do. The ladder means nothing; it's your name in records that are the real thing; only the best of drivers can do such things.
If I did offend anyone in the threat I also apologise; I also apologise to Grip for being someone 'boostish' in my original posts (or vague, shall I put it)
Oh yeah... Grip.. what was your server name and where is it again? I forgot.
I took this screeny a couple of weeks ago...... care to explain?
I have plenty of screen shots of you and other members of [z] cars if nadeo want them.
[z] doesn't promote boosting nor does it command members to boost. If members want to boost that's their problem. Most of them (i.e. Mop, Shocker, etc) have been kind enough to accept that and have joined boost teams, and I have no problem with that.
Also - that shot is Photoshopped and I refuse to accept that I was intentionally 'screenied' in a PF server.
Finally - My connection sucks too badly for any server with a ping lower than 500 to keep me in after the end of a race. I WILL ADMIT TO ENTERING PF SERVERS but I have never stayed - I have only ever gone in to speak to someone. My laptop always lags me out when the map ends, and it's just a waste of time to sit in PF servers, imo.
So if you can think of a better way to try to undermine me or my clan, go ahead. And if you think I'm still bullshitting there's a forum on my clan's site where you should put your ass for a match and we'll promptly kick it.
The win/draw/lose screen is the best way to judge skill and the ratio of wins to losses is enough to show a good player. But since boosters have 250K either way I'm not sure how it would work. Would it work by calculating the relative ratio of wins to loses in order to determine a relative rank?[POL]jakub wrote:so for 10 euros i can be important?
ill give it 100 euros to be 10 x as important, and again the boost starts...
when i said it would be a good idea, to base the ladder on wins, it was because i thnik it would be some kind of easy, because this number is already on everybodies account, and it cant be so difficult, to make a ranking out of it, as far as the programming is concerned.
of course there will be boost possibilities, and it will not show, who is the most skilled player, but at least it wouldnt be so easy to manipulate, because i cant imagine someone get like 50 own accounts on one server (and host this server).
this was only a desperate idea, which of course is not the best, but better then the exosting one.
