Permanent ladder system, raking in-game

Permanent ladder system, raking in-game
Hello,

I got this idea and I think it could be make xono very popular.
If someone already expose this idea, I'll delete.
If it violates the spirit of the game, I'll delete.

I'll try to explain it.

For the people who play trackmania. That's it...

For the other :
- You have to register on a serv.
- You start at the last place (if there is 500 ppl registered, you are at #501)
- When you play "official ladder" game server, you win rank (for example if you are #501, and you finish the map above people that are #300, you will be #400)
- More you win high ranked people, more you progress in rank.

A rank by country and in general shown in game could be nice.
I have no idea how to compute the new rank at the end of the map.

Arrogant player like me, like those rankin ^^

In Nexuiz, the Mr. green ladder system is a very good idea. What I propose is the same but, fully automatized and integrated in-game.

obviously, people choose if they want play ladder or not. (register or not)

What do you think ? Is it possible ?

Awesome, did Qz show you that ?
Nexuiz : I Reach the top5 of the ladder (even top3 I guess). Top1 French for quite some time (when active) of ladder. Top5 of some tournaments (if I remember well)

I know Trackmania... but I don't think that its Ranking System is the Best one for Xonotic... but I think its maybe better then the current! But I'd say you can't compare Xonotic rankings with TM rankings! ...we have all the game modes...
If we change to that, we need to rethink everything to get a nice ranking Confused

This would be great as a mod for mass tournament system, but otherwise, I don't know if it's that cool for smaller servers.

RE: Permanent ladder system, raking in-game
There were some thoughts about this feature.
An user statistics/authentification system.
Similar to QuakeLive or all the other commercial shooting games e.g. Bad Company 1/2, MW2, and so on...

First of all there must be a database where all your informations are stored...
And the (hopefully) coming Xonotic game have to interact with this database. (Does this work at all? ^^)

Before your (interesting) idea could be added, there have to be stats/auth system.

Well, I am not often on IRC... So there might be some updates I just don't know of. Tongue

This would be great for tourneys. I can state that for day to day play I wouldn't want to be forced to use it. Sometimes you just want to have fun, you know?

The authentication part is almost finished by now. Just in review at LordHavoc, will soon be committed to the engine.

I like the idea, I played TrackMania and I think this is something exactly fitting Xonotic Smile

A worldwide competition between fraggeers.

It would be optional, no one has to use it Smile
If we just wanna have fun we play without using ladder system, when we wanna do some competition we turn it on and here we go! Up, up, up and away!

Cool =) If an API is available, I can make the front web side. (maybe on the Xonotic website ?)

Sure, in my idea, people can choose.

You right, but a ranking system could be developed only for 1on1 easily.
Everyone knows the 1on1 playerz, needs ranks

Awesome, did Qz show you that ?
