New matrix for ranks online?

RE: New matrix for ranks online?
I have no problem with the new scores for rank but do have a one with how scores are derived to start with. Scoring does not take into account your opponents stats. Without seeming to slam anyone, I have noticed that when a rookie posts for a game the sharks line up in a feeding frenzy. This almost guarantees wins and racks points.

There are several of us who play mostly the sharks on a regular basis and our win loss ratio's shows it. I have played 6 of the top 20 players religiously and my wins or more appropriately losses shows that. In fact I am in the sharks fin soup as a guppy, due to my losses and eating even the most seasoned opponents (Ha Tiger 88). The point is that I think that one of the scoring factors that should be looked at are who you played against. Break the ladder into fourths and if you play someone in your quarter ok score as is. If you play someone in a quarter above or below you that should change the scoring factors and minimize the loss from the guppy and lower the win for the shark. Transversely if a guppy wins it should mean a greater point total and a higher loss for the shark. You try playing Jumbo as the NVA and see if he does not hand you your shorts. LOL

Also another part of the ladder is there are no modern military categories. The Marines don't have a general and the NVA does not exist at all. I know Jumbo would change to NVA in a heartbeat and keeps joking about changing his handle to Charlie or Victor Charlie.

As for the actual rank maybe one of the factors should be number of games played along with the overall score ratio. Like Steelrain I think the members should have been allowed greater input. I still am unsure what was wrong with things the way they were? As it is now there is no reason to play other than the enjoyment of the game which is how it should be so why not take the ranks out all together. It is not at all a true reflection of how good one is just that they one a lot of games.

I have been with this club a long time and was even a play tester for TS's in WFBP1. You will find my name used in some of the scn's. Along with some dedicated others I made DGVN a viable game and created over 100 scn's. I helped with graphics and play tested hundreds of new scn's without ever getting a score or point. I did it for the love of the game and have never once bitched about who was in the ranks above me (except of course the rude Swede we all would like to forget) but can't understand how this change makes anything better.

Anyway just my thoughts as one of the guppies (right>>>)
