Well first off, I just want to say nice job to brian, with your custom ping pictures, that's pretty amazing.

As for the problem on hand, I like the talk of averages. What if u made it so that on leaderboard, the score present was the mean of all acc's for that person? And then have a link showing the other acc's. That way, if a clan starts score pumping, the "bad" acc will drop the overall rating.

Buuuuuut, I think the best solution would be to limit ppl to 1 acc. Then they can't score pump, and the ganging up problem could be solved if u programmer the leaderboard to accept score changes from team X so many times a day. And if ppl need another acc to test maps, y don't you make it so that mapmakers can deem a map beta. Then make sure beta maps don't affect anybody's score.

I think it's a good idea, but since this problem is so big, I probably missed something.

yeah if we go down to one account. then the people with iPhones could play with thier Internet and switch to wifi at thief house meaning they have two accounts. some players have the same ip adress as others.

the other thing you said about combining the accounts scores. only means more anons will be playing and players need thier trash accounts to test maps.

The growing anon population could be a problem, but for mapmakers, I already said that we could add a beta option. When making maps, the mapmaker could deem the map "beta," and then beta maps would not affect anybody's score.

which is the reason why you never give your account info to anyone else....

please take down you viet pride avatar zack. I was going to poste in two days for you to take off your avatar. it wasent for what happen just now but what happen inthe past about a month ago we all had to agree to let you go.

zack you get so mad but how do you think you got so high on the leader board. we gotten your zack account that high so people don't think you suck on at this game. maybe he just took back the points we got you from us playing on your iD. you been playing for more then a year and still haven't got your iD high enough and you play alot. I looked at the games and it don't look like boosting to me the time matches up

I will find out what is going on. Using someone else's account for an unauthorized use is not ok, to say the least.
