[Easy Community Contest]- Rank Yourself - Ridgebeam - 07-21-2020

How to answer:
  • Respond in this thread with your current overall score (battle-score).

  • In this example, I earned the rank of Corporal
Chart Comparison:

Caveat:
  • Newer player's ranks don't scale well, so they get the Playing Time Multiplier. Higher-level ranks do seem to scale well, but not with an x24 multiplier. So newer players make sure and KEEP PLAYING MATCHES AND GETTING KILLS!
  • Not allowing Veteran players to multiply their Playing Time is subject to change. And maybe Capped at a lower level.
  • There will be possibilities of earning bonus multipliers from K/D ratios, wins, and other forms of activity to earn higher ranks.
Goal:
  • Rewards just for playing! Sounds fun right!  Big Grin 
  • Display your rank insignia and in-game tags everywhere!
  • Matchup to equally ranked participants
  • Anyone can participate. There is nothing to join. Just repost in this thread.
  • Have Fun!

Discover more at the ranks page of the {DoD} website - the whole site is still a work in progress.
I felt like providing a chance to get more eyes on the project would help me navigate the challenges of wanting to put it together in the first place.


Thanks for any feedback that comes my way,

The rank levels are great, although it's clear that people will have to play longer to reach the highest rank.
It's cool that it is long although they have to last a long time acquiring experience and points that they need. I wonder if the players will reach the highest rank on the chart.

Thanks LegendGuard,

I've conducted some testing with stats taken directly from players who have 5 - 9 years of playing time, ten-thousands in matches played, and hundred-thousands in kills. I have for sure came up with some "General of Xonotic" ranks, the highest rank on the chart. Which maybe could use a new name? =)

I'd suggest looking into ranking algorithms versus these measures, which seem arbitrary if I'm being honest.
Whenever someone brings up this topic I link them to this, which is a well written explanation of how ranks can be calculated. It's a great read and comes along with a detailed companion paper explaining the mathematics. It also has open source code you can refer to.

Awesome @Kotangens!

So your 91,573,664 = Chief Warrant Officer 5

Games Played x Kills x Playing Time = BattleScore

2,419 x 37,856 = 91,573,664 (exluded Playing Time)


Rank: Chief Warrant Officer 5

I'd be "[Colonel]ogene" I suppose.
114865 kills at the time of this post, times 6761 games equals 776.602.265
Does it have any deeper meaning that you seem to get a higher military rank the more you've spent time sitting in front of a desk smiling? At least that's how I think I've earned my credentials so far... I think there's a lesson in there for all of us.

Awesome @Halogene,

Thanks for the reply. No, there is no deeper meaning...

Perhaps we could drive one up... Like if more new players (private, private first-class, corporals, etc) just realized they were playing against a Colonel or some similar high-ranked player... the newer player may be inclined to be less frustrated with losing so much, and more inclined to play more so they can meet the requirements of the next ranks up =)  - But that is wishful thinking... Perhaps it is just to drive up forum posts to this thread  Big Grin

When you rank up next, come back here and post. I will change your insignia.
