Excluding Jack and Stone88, the rest of the top 8 have only played 10 games between them in the past 14 days. I know these discussions have been had in the past but perhaps it's time to rethink the current 2 week inactivity rule to stop people parking at the top of the leaderboard and the leaderboard becoming stale.

The top 10 won't like the idea, but it would probably make the game more interesting for the many other players outside the top 10.

Any sensible thoughts welcome

I think that would be more interesting, I have other ideas also, like showing points gained or lost per game, and showing ur rank if ur not on the leaderboard do when u play someone with a rating of like 1634 u can find out what their rank is.

Iv said in the past that we could have minimum number of games played a week when in the top 25 that's relative to the number you have played per week that you have played While not in the top 25

The current rules don't address the problem, I agree. I want to stop the camping at the top. The question is, what is the best way to do it? Currently it is play 1 game per week, or face a 10 point deduction that week. That isn't nearly enough. Here is a proposal.

It's a sliding scale.

score 2200+: 7 games a week, 4 points deducted each missed game.
(1 game a day)

score 2100+: 6 games a week, 4 points deducted each missed game.
(.85 games a day)

score 2000+: 5 games a week, 4 points deducted each missed game.
(.71 games a day)

score 1900+: 4 games a week, 4 points deducted each missed game.
(.57 games a day)

score 1800+: 3 games a week, 4 points deducted each missed game.
(.42 games a day)

score 1700+: 2 games a week, 4 points deducted each missed game.
(.28 games a day)

score 1600+: 1 game a week, 4 points deducted each missed game.
(.14 games a day)

There will be arguments that "this is too much". The point is, it keeps the leaderboard fluid. This approach makes people decide how much they want to be there, compared to the next player.

I will be the first to say that that is entirely too much. I do not have time to play that many games. If you put that kind of pressure on the leaderboard, then it will seem more like a job.

Docking 4 pts is killer at the top. Its hard enough to get one point when being ranked high.

I am totally against that idea. I will not play the game anymore if this is implemented.

Say it was implemented. What if you could get more points at the top than you can now to make it easier? Is there a way to make it work?

Or if you were to play 3 games one day, 2 games the next, then 2 more another day.

I really don't think 7 games in one week is very much. And currently we both know you don't get points playing an anon. Considering the new update may not be having anons, we will say no.

if this does happen then are we going to be able to see how many games we played or if we need to play more games before the end of the week. it could be shown on the stats.

subzero what does this mean?"Considering the new update may not be having anons, we will say no."

Yes, showing the amount of games played every week/month/year would be pretty cool and helpful to make sure you have the amount of games you need to keep you where you want to be at on the leaderboard.

Wonderer, that means that Scott might be removing the anons all together in the next update.

Bradley you're a great player (2nd on the list!). When you were scaling the leaderboard, I think you played more than 1 game a day. But now you don't because it's too risky - you might lose points. That is the problem we're trying to address. Remember this rule would apply to all players. If you get docked 4 points, so would another player at the top who isn't playing that user name much.

I expect top scores to go down because those players will need to play with those player names more and take on more risk, but that is ok, and the point of this. It forces top players to keep playing, which means they are more actively testing their skills against other players, which in turn gives other players a chance at the top too.

Btw I don't expect players at the top to like any idea that subtracts points. My goal and responsibility is to do the best thing for all players, not just the ones at the top.

I'm still listening to feedback, so please keep it coming.

But sub this is a server change and i think the delay is waiting for graphics to finish, we might have to wait a bit.
