The noble Atreides, the insidious Ordos and the evil Harkonnen. Only one house will prevail.... This forum is for the discussion of Intelligent Games' C&C inspired recreation of Westwood Studios' Dune 2.
Remember the original Command & Conquer? Remember all the units, characters and themes from the game? Remember the gritty feeling of RTS Warfare? Remember Tiberium? Well, that classic game from the early 90's that spawned over a dozen titles and revolutionized the RTS Gaming World has been reincarnated in the advanced 3D World of the C&C Generals Zero Hour SAGE 3D Game engine!
Well like you said its random, and the higher ranked player could be thinking, im tired of playing this guy, i want to play a different guy, lets make a new log and we hit other players in same level with 0 points. But if there is no one else online, then he will hit the same player.
People assume its to punish the "rank10 "player but its to hit someone else for a change. The issue is there is to less players.
Limit the logs to 2-3 nicks then you need to do a reset and delete all existing logs so people can choice what they like.
Smurf names are ok, but switching your name when a certain player comes online is ladder manipulation obviously.
Imagine Rank1 with 1000 points plays against rank 10 with 500 points. Rank1 gets 40 points for a win due to the difference in rating, Rank10 gets 80 points for beating a much better player. If they play a series and end up with 10:5 score then both end up still being the same ranks (each won and lost 400 points), the ladder points were awarded properly based on skill and each player has the correct rank.
Now if Rank1 is switching to a lower points nickname then the points will be awarded differently, a 10:5 series would have stolen a lot points from the Rank10 player and he would be Rank20 now. The points are not awarded properly if people abuse throw-away nicknames to manipulate the ladder.
This is not a new problem, the yuri's revenge players are doing the same and continuously blame each other for it.
We probably have to limit the nicknames each player can use per month to 2 or 3. This way everyone can still play undercover with his smurf nicks, but it's more difficult to manipulate the ladder.
But it isn't manipulation. He is following the guidelines. Do you play other games ? For any major competitive video game especially real time strategy games there has always been smurfing. Its it's own strategy and people try new builds or don't risk a cheat or disconnect. As I stated it doesn't effect either of your points much. If you barely play and the points are essentially the same why does it matter . If he beat you 17 to 8 on his main log be same .
Just to clarify what would you like, one log in on the ladder? that's ridiculous
i am Mike Pence, i know, i am banned.
Only one question: What can i do to get unmuted after 1 year and 1 month? Chem said even harder things and that for a much longer period of time. I am ready to make peace with Ferret. I will stop commenting his videos on Youtube, and so on.
