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?
If you have 70k you will loose about 1000lp on monday
if you have 85k you will loose about 4000lp on monday
if you have 90k you will loose about 2000lp on monday

After reaching the 90k its not a problem to stay there. It takes 3 hours for a noob like me to get the 2000lp back.

yeah right if your a nOOb i'm a baby :lol:
but by the way I think it should be like this

If you have 70k you will loose about 3000lp on monday
if you have 85k you will loose about 2000lp on monday
if you have 90k you will loose about 1000lp on monday

it should decrease because it gets harder to get more LP... :3

It's not constant because it depends on the number of players scoring points and how many points they actually score, whilst the number of players per LP range has to be kept constant...

> 90k : 100 players
> 80k : 1000 players
> 70k : 10000 players
> 60k : 100000 players

XD Right now I'm so low that if I kick butt on a server, I get like 2000 LPs so I'm pretty happy...but if I get higher and higher and start getting less LPs, I'll probably just go back to racing for fun...I don't need to be world-famous or even nationally famous...I just like to race.

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:
Only for the sentence with bold and underline... not all ^^ I have always played for fun and only for fun since the beginning of 2004. And todays, I still to ;)

i think its fun to get points, but having fun while racing is more important to me, and yes it does become harder as you have more points and is almsot depressing on some servers seeing hardly any points added when only went into the server for points

i spent most of my time up the top of the ladder through tmu utnill recently when iv'e got somewhat busier.

rank climbing is particularly easy and nor is it importent ... even at the top 1 UK spot for 3 years running (as i was) and in the top 100 players for about 2 years solid i allways knew i wasnt "that fast" as i play ET leagues and well ... there is allways someone who surpasses your ability.

it doesnt matter so much the LP, but it can be fun climbing and does bring some small kudos reward being "up there".

so in short ... it doesnt matter that much but the LP can be a game in itself.

I don't care about ladder points anymore.
I had 100k points three times and this was enough for me. I don't want to get there again.

But we should be happy that we have such a nice ladder system which allows everyone, after a long brake or total new player which are good enough, to catch the first place. I don't know any other game which allows this. In the most games it is impossible to cath the first place when you start with the game two years later. This ladder system we have is fair for everyone. Pros will battle in RoC for the first place and the others are able to beat them there as well.
