Do you care about LP/rank?

Post by AlexKool » 22 Mar 2009 17:25

Hi guys,

I was talking with a few guys yesterday about the nadeo ladder and LP, and weather its worth trying to gain the LP to get a higher rank - i think that we all have wanted to in the past, and maybe lots still try now.

Personally i don't try to get any LP, but if i end up in a server where i do get it i don't mind. :thumbsup:

nope.
I gave up months ago, as there is really no point. You just end up losing lp every week(if you have lots of lp), and have to work, like a chore to keep your rank. It only shows, in my opinion, that you play the game wayyy too much, not that you have driving skills. So now I play more for records and fun.

Not true, high rank players, although some may have played tirelessly for hours on end to get a few hundred points, many are very good racers. Although there are top players that do not play for rank, and are better noticed through the number of records they hold.

In the beginning I kept my points high enough to drive on the 90k servers since those were the only good and active tech/rounds servers.

Since atm its mostly dirt on top, I don't even care for that so no lp's here.

I think its fun to get little points, i like to play sundays at the ROC to get some points. And you dont actualy need to play so much to keep your rank nowdays. I played 2 hrz this last week, and that was sunday. and i keeping my rank. I think you need some skill to keep yourself above 90k, on sunday you need to get 1500++ points to keep above 90k, and there is not so many who can do that..

So the LP is fun, but have little to do with the actual skill level of a player..

Thanx guys - its interesting, because i think its thanks to the LP/rank that the newbies actually carry on playing for some time.. then if they come to their senses realize that there aint much point. :lol:

So like anonymous345 said, i also play for the records and fun - tho recently the server that i play in have their own ladder, own "LP" (ie: exp) and stuff like lvls and all that stuff... its quite good actually...

Since I had something like 83k LP I stopped playing for LP.
It became too boring.

I focus on Official mode now :roflol:

well i'm in the 70k so I lose some but I receive more...lol

but those who are in the 80k...well the lp just shows that you have to be percistent in getting it...its like you have to works harder to get it...

kinda workaholic...lol

So i think the best way is to wait for the higher server up to 100k..those are better to gain LP or NP...until then play a bit for Lp and play in other great server... :lol:

meh, whats the point of trying to get up high? you will just fall right back down in a couple weeks if you don't keep it up and you have to race on a bunch of kinda dumb tracks for nothing to do it too. I think the high ranking people on the popular tracks on dedimania are much more telling.

yeah your right...Men but I'm addicted to LP.. :lol:

Is it true that if you have more Lp the more you lose like if you have 70k you lose like 500lp and if you have 80K you lose 1500lp?

The only thing I could say it's that ladder interest is a taboo on TM. When I look tm-ladder.com stats, I see that many person take care of their ladder (for fun or not)
