Ladder reducing points, rank is the same

Post by Florent » 03 Oct 2008 09:27

We have started again the procedure of point normalization yesterday. The procedure is new.

The program is currently scheduled to operate on Monday. It will assure that the number of players in each range is stable:
90K-100K = 100
80K-90K = 1000
70K-80K = 10K
60K-70K = 100K
50K-60K = 1M

You never lose your ranking. It is just the points that are stabilized. It is done to assure that ladder climbing can always be done at the same pace. The table is updated on the Monday morning because of 90K-100K that are moving on Sunday.

I think so, because you have new 90k+ players after sunday.
So the ladder needs a rework.

Is it possible the script ran today as well? Sunday evening after the 80k-100k servers i was ranked 98th, yesterday my points were reduced from 90650 to 90350. First I was ranked 129th but after a while (this morning) I got back to 98th. However, I just logged in again and lost another 300 points, reducing my LP to 90042. Now my new rank is 218th.

Is this because of the script ran again and my rank will be fixed tomorrow again (losing points without losing rank), or is this behaviour caused by something else?

Today there are 127 players with more than 90k points!! Is this Ladder quota working properly? And Nadeo says that we dont loose ranks, but on Sunday, at the end of RoC i was 95 in world ladder, but after the reduction of points im now 118? Very strange. And in game i appear as 228, lol! Big mess.... :pil

The 95 was compared to the ladder of 1 day ago (it updates once every 24 hours I think). So you go up and all the others stay at the same number of points (because the ladder hasn't updated yet) and then when it updates, it has the new amount of points for everyone so you suddenly drop to your 'real' rank.

And the 127 players thing is probably because they didn't do a points decrease yet after this Sunday.

the game is good. multiplayer code its very good. the comunity (coders, servers admins players etc) its very good. unfortunately, the owners of this game, dont know wath the **** is going on here :)

the people lost 3 hours in queue lists to play 20/25mins at sundays, to score some points, and then someone really **** stupid, stole the points and say... aaa.. no more than 100 players whith 90k lp... why?! this is nothing... give me my money back... :)

im off.
bye.

Yes they did Zooz, i got 90450 pts on Sunday, now i have 90100! And i think the points reduction is made now just once per week, on Monday! ( see Florent post ). So its still hard to me to understand how is this system working! :pil
