There's one point that's not clear to me:
usually, when i stop playing on one evening, I check my LP; yesterday my LP were above 72K; this morning my LP were below 72K, and my ranking was also much worse than yesterday evening. And it is thursday. This happened on several other mornings. So, does some kind of ladder update take place also on other week days?
On the other hand, if I check my "player page" on official.trackmania.com, I find much higher LP and ranking (by hundreds of LP and world ranking positions) than what I see directly through the game.
Someone can explain these discrepancies?
Thanks a lot, and sorry if this problem was already addressed, but actually I did not find an answer on the forum

Well until this thread it was all mystery to myself.

Showing some rank ingame while it is actually not even remotely correct is not the best idea IMHO and that's the main reason why people hate this system. they believe they ranked up while in fact they might have gone down.

if you say balancing accounts takes a good amount of computing, I can live with that, but showing a rank in a table with 3 million entries hardly does (knowing that even a simple mysql db is able to sort it within a minute). So maybe update the rank at least daily so people see they don't loose points yet their rank changes and possibly even drains (as that's what is really accurate)

Quoting from florent
Florent wrote: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.
If it was like the old system we would all be stucked again on the 100k...and there no competition in being the 1st of the world...now with this system u can't get easily to the top ;)

TM tops aren't the give away rank anymore work to get ur rank bro ^^...I stoped 'cause there no point :D
