in 8 years, nobody has been able to talk sense to whomever owns the site at the time... 8 years, this has been a point of contention... i can not believe it is still going on... sure, you can set up games and invite people all you want or go to callouts... but you just seem to be limiting who you can play when you do those things... i'm not a high rank, but i do understand their concerns, etc... anyway, 8 years and the debate rages on!!!-el Jesus negro

Maybe it's just because I've drank the Cool-Aid, but I like the principle behind no rank restricted games.

All right, the original post in this thread is from 2006. Let's do something useful with it! I want to organize the original post into several different feasible rank restriction ideas and then submit the suggestion. bigWham is open to considering almost any type of suggestion, so let's lay out some clear ideas for him to consider if and when he's ready to develop them.

My personal preference is to implement straight point level restrictions, like we have had unofficially in the Callouts forum for years and years. 2000+, 2500+, 3000+, etc. There have been quite a few AutoTournaments with point restrictions - both floor and ceiling values - so there seems to be no reason why we can't make normal games with point restrictions as well.

Could someone who is familiar with the subject sum up the reasons those suggestions are declined?

Mets...this, your reason for refusal, is now an outdated idea.

See, the site used to think tournaments should mostly be open for the community at large, at a time when "certain ranks only" tournaments were frowned on. With the creation of the freaky stars with some of the more rare ones being prerequisites to join other tournaments, the site has opened the door to more and more requests for RHIP (rank has its privileges) games.

Additionally, the suggestion could minimize the appearance of farming and the appearance of points dropping, making it easier for mods to detect those who do those activities.

Agreed with the above, Fox makes an excellent suggestion.

Now can we finally get something like this approved? I'm starting to get fed up with low ranked players who have no idea what they're doing joining my escalating games and ruining the fun for evereyone else in the game.

You're a low ranked player.

Filtration system so higher/lower ranked player cant join.

Postby Andie23 on Sun Jul 20, 2014 6:48 pm

Implement a filtration system for higher/lower ranked players

There should be some filter so that your playing your same class/rank.

I feel there should be an option to block lower/higher ranked members from joining games with your current rank.

It seems even a premium account does not have this option. although a invite option is nice with the premium. being new to the site it would
not eliminate the problem. (eg. i feel there is no reason a ranked 1600 should be able to join a 4000, or a 400 join a 1600 game) or at least have the option to not allow it. lots of people are not in "clans" and dont have friends on site.


How this will benefit the site and/or other comments:

this would benefit the current ranking system with your score boards. also it would allow "freemium" games to be a little faster. as a freemium account we are only allowed to play 4 games at a time. when 3 people who join and miss all their turns and are "cooks" it gets very frustrating and causes one not to return to the site.

if there was this option in "premium" to close out a lower class (even if only by a certain amount lower) i would buy a membership in that moment.

also your bots should not affect the percentage of wins/losses.. but thats another subject.

thanks for your time.. Andie23

basing my opinion on different gaming systems, that when there is a ranking system the lowest class cant chose to challenge the highest class on a system of merit.. you should have to earn that honor

I like the idea! you don't have to have it a setting, but like the Round limit, its an option. You should be able to use it if you want it, or if you don't then you don't have to! But it would be a good way for a rank to compete without the added stress of going through and looking for people to play you and having to invite them. And again, if you don't want to play, don't play, but it would be a nice option!

At least do something at the Speed game level. For sure it is the reason most high ranking players never play speed games. Not a lot of fun if you care about your points to play one game loose 50 points and it takes 9 games to get the points back. A big waist of time. Make a filter for ranks or fix the point system!
