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..

Evem more rewarded than double points? :shock: I think that is more than enough. That would be extremelly unfair to those players like me, that have TMUF, but only play Stadium, and i know there are a lot of players that do this. :wink:

like me.... :)

I´m stuck on 90K because i play Stadium only. And from experience i can say that you must win approx 1600 Points in 3 hours to end up with maybe 90002 Points on Monday :)

Miss a Sunday or gain less then the 1600 Points and you are out again :)

I dont say its unfair but its really hard to get into Top 100 as a Stadium Player. But i like it most so i dont get annoyed anymore. Theres more than Ladderpoints :)

i realy think that all 7 environments should count the same, so that a player that is good on
all environments should be greatly rewarded 7x more then the once that just is good in 1 environment.
The old tmu ladder was good in this way, but i know it would be impossible now when tmu and tmn is joined into 1 ladder.

Hi don't know anything about the united...I have the game but on-line I play with the Nations account, but do you think that It should be like 7 diferent types of points and ranks like playing in 7 types of TM server, this only for united...

The game would be pretty cool, i don't know if this exists, if It doesn't could it exist?
Hey! :D :3 This Is An AwEsOmE P0st :3

Well they are telling me that You "Never" lose rank"...

Well in the last two weeks my rank has gone from around 1500 to almost 6000.

I'd call that losing some rank, wouldn't you.

oh yeah + about 4000 pts have been taken.

Seems to me that you should keep the points you earn & your rank should change as the points change.
But I'm losing Rank & points, & in large numbers. even though I play almost everyday.

Yeah that doesn't work here.
It should be that simple but it is not.
! Now, How about some real answers from The people who designed this ever so
complicated System

Besides I play for 2-3 hours almost everyday & it's not like I never make the Podium.
Infact I do make the podium plenty.

Whatever!

If what you say is true, then you should try to play on Servers that will give you more LPs, against players that have a better rank than you, and that way the points you gain should be enough so you can go up in the Ladder quite easily. The system is quite easy to understand in fact, you must get more points than those you loose on Mondays to at least maintain your rank! 8)

I'm Not Stupid.

You can't get into a server with players of better rank if you don't have enough points I've been trying to get to 80,000 pts for what seems like months now. Every time I get close 4000 or 6000 points are taken from me.

You know that you have to beat other drivers on servers where you can get points? If the ranks of this drivers are better than yours, you get more points.
Each monday, after the RoC sunday the ladder is stabilized. That means, to fill the requirements of the ladder quota, points are reduced.
How does this work?
Look here.

Clear?
