The saga concludes with Champions: Ep 3
« on: December 06, 2005, 01:14:21 AM »
The vote gave a pretty good consensus - the future of TSC overall rankings will consist of a single champion incorporating all the categories, with individual leaders for separate categories. As before, a few questions remain:
Edit: Questions resolved. Conclusions:
- Leaders for each category
- Give people a week or two to defend their rankings in the other categories

As far as points go, points-are-good/bad will simply be an option in the User Settings panel, as they're functionally identical if you make ties give a point in the points-are-good line; good seems to be preferred, so will be the default.

As for rankings disruption with all the categories included - once again, keep in mind that you can only lose/gain as many points in a division as there are players. In games where rings / score aren't recorded, highly ranked players have little to fear, as rarely are there as many as 5 players in a division right now. That may change, though...!

Anyhow, discuss.

Grouped time is a bit redundant with the overall championship taking everything into account, especially if you consider that the non-time categories don't attract as many players. So I say split it.

As for the other categories... dunno. It's probably not worth splitting them unless they attract a significant number of players.

Doesn't matter to me when it gets implemented.

If you don't want people to treat you like you're stupid, then your best defence is to not be stupid.

- Leaders for each category, or grouped Time (Times, Time Attack, Races, Bosses, Extra, Freestyle), Score, and Rings (Rings, Special)?

No point. Each category should be separate (bar Freestyle, but then nobody plays that anyway).

Quote
- Implement ASAP, or give people a week or two to defend their rankings in the other categories? =P

Eh, it seems only fair to give people a chance. I'm not pro the competition being turned on it's head in a day - better give fair warning, especially given not everyone is active.

Good. I like this idea. (Site-wide rankings ftw >_>)

Eh, so I'd better get my score/ring counts off my SA2B/SH/etc games. And maybe *gasp* set a few others!

Also anychance of an "Overall Site Champion" type thingy? >_>

Like, all the members with submitted divisions in one big table, and games where they dont have any submissions='full' points.: But coloured the old way, like, top 20% based off of Totals in Red and so on, as I highly doubt theres anyone on the site with over around 50%, apart from maybe Mike

It'd be pretty pointless but cool to see nonetheless :o
Did you not think I had a mind?

I pretty much agree with what mike said except for how long before its implemented. I recomend a 2-3 day delay time before enacting the new system, since that will be plenty of time for a fair warning.
Ever know what its like to get pwned by a book? Sonic certainly does.

We need a week or two to get rings and scores in all the categories...

And I like your idea RPG!

RPG's idea is actually something I thought of while reading Rolk's post, but I was unsure of how it would be implemented. :/

Also I'm pro whenever everyone else feels like implementing it.

By the way, should Freestyle really be included in the overall rankings, since normally they're not allowed in stuff like that?

Oh for crying out loud.

I've had that idea for two years! And now you claim it as your own!

I vote to split it and allow a few days warning.
