    New Rating System

    Post by Chronometer on Sat Dec 13, 2014 10:19 am

    Basically, the rating system sucks. The majority of your players aren't forgiving.
    Either you get 1 or 2 if you die as thing or you get 5 if you kill everybody.
    You should just say 'good' or 'bad', and not bother with having a complicated system. Just a thought.

    Yeh, Sportsmanship is lacking kinda, but it still going to be the same result if you were to vote good or bad.

    I understand your intentions, but in reality the change wouldn't affect much. The way you said it, having it be either 5 or 1 with no other options is the same thing as a good or bad system. However, this system allows for variation and a more clear perspective of just how good a player is. Regardless, if you have a higher thing rating, then people can expect you are good. If you have a low one, people expect you to be bad. Its very black and white while still allowing players to give a "medium" rating using 3 or an in between stance on things using 2 and 4.

    In summary, this wouldn't change anything and would make it harder to distinguish good players from amazing players.
