Ladder - Change log

Recommended Posts

So a few important changes to note.

  • Players do not "lose" points if they have lost a game, they simply gain a smaller margin of points. 
    The theory is to eliminate the ethic of bad sportsmanship and rage quitting when losing. If you lose you're guaranteed some points.
     
  • Ladder design will always be evolving and remember everything you see is never finished. However we're scrapping the traditional table view you see so much in ladders. 
    Reason being it's too common, it's not inline with what we do here. We're pushing boundaries and want a somewhat unique experience to competitive C&C to entice as many players as possible.
     
  • Additional game stats introduced  
    Including and not limited to:
    • Player Colour
    • Player Faction
    • Player Credits
    • Player Infantry, Planes, Buildings Left
    • Player Units, Infantry, Planes, Buildings Bought
    • Player Units, Infantry, Planes, Buildings Destroyed
       
  • Current Game information stored:
    • Superweapons
    • Crates
    • Credits
    • Duration
    • MCV Redeploy
    • Build of Ally Conyard
    • Average FPS
    • Reconnection Error Flag
    • Unit Count Start
    • Players in Game
    • Map / Scenario
       
  • Game Scenarios 
    The different game scenarios of win/lose will require testing again to see if the code implemented catches disconnects, quitting etc.

 

For the additional game stats we've now got I would like to give a huge thanks to tomsons26 and dkeeton for helping me with the parsing and testing.
 

What's next?

  • Re-testing of the game scenarios , keep playing games, report anything unusual.  
  • A look into how we can handle Reconnection errors. 
  • On going UI changes and ladder code.



 

On another note thank you all for your testing so far and for being patient.

Badges

Just added a first pass at basic badges based on rank currently. I'll make a page in a moment so you can see what badges are available. 

public function badge($rank)
    {
        switch ($rank)
        {
            case $rank >= 0 && $rank <= 50:
                return "rank-01-e2 badge-0";
            case $rank > 50 && $rank <= 100:
                return "rank-01-e3 badge-1";
            case $rank > 100 && $rank <= 200:
                return "rank-01-e4 badge-2";
            case $rank > 200 && $rank <= 300:
                return "rank-01-e5 badge-2";
            case $rank > 300 && $rank <= 400:
                return "rank-01-e6 badge-3";
            case $rank > 500 && $rank <= 600:
                return "rank-01-e7 badge-3";
            case $rank > 600 && $rank <= 700:
                return "rank-01-e8 badge-4";
            case $rank > 600 && $rank <= 700:
                return "rank-01-e8-1 badge-4";
            case $rank > 700 && $rank <= 800:
                return "rank-01-e8-2 badge-4";
            case $rank > 700 && $rank <= 800:
                return "rank-01-e9-1 badge-5";
            case $rank > 700 && $rank <= 800:
                return "rank-01-e9-2 badge-5";
            case $rank > 800 && $rank <= 900:
                return "rank-01-e9-2 badge-6";
            case $rank > 900 && $rank <= 1000:
                return "rank-01-e9-3 badge-6";
            case $rank > 1000 && $rank <= 1500:
                return "rank-02-00-e4 badge-7";
            case $rank > 1500 && $rank <= 2000:
                return "rank-02-00-e5 badge-7";
            case $rank > 2000 && $rank <= 2500:
                return "rank-02-00-e6 badge-7";
            case $rank > 2000 && $rank <= 2500:
                return "rank-02-00-e7 badge-7";
            case $rank > 3000:
                return "rank-02-00-e9-01 badge-8";
            default: "rank-03-e2";
        }
    }

We could look at it differently too, open to ideas on what. You could base badges on X, Y, Z and build up a score. 

Very rough look at badges (Colours will be changed): https://staging.cnc-comm.com/ladder/yr/badges

So far it looks like that yeah.

Points:

  • Only 1vs1 Games should now count
  • Points no longer stored on username, and stored on a player_points table - allows easy management of games and points.

Admin panel:

  • As of currently, shows a list of all the games per ladder, and allows you to delete. Deleting a game removes all associated ladder_games, player_games, player_points records.
