There has always been whispering in dark corners about it, casual mentioning in fairly crowded places and some subtle hinting behind closed doors every now and then... but lately, it seems these occurances have started to grow... "Hey! Psst... were you around back then?!", "Are you one of us?!", "Remember the good old days?!", "I'm wondering... what was your final rank?!"

Well... ENOUGH! NO MORE!!

It's time we brought it back into the open, dust it off and shed some light onto it! Yes!!
The former Armor Points, or for short 'AP', System!!

Remember that small ranking image in the middle on the left side of your screen? No? Well, this one...

Remember now?! Yes! Exactly! THAT ONE!!
It would show a portion of the rankings in AP for every user/member of this website! Like this:

And you could check your Armor Games Profile every day to see what your current accumulated AP score was...

Remember?! Yes?! Huh?! *nudgenudgewinkwink*

So... what seems to be bothering a lot of users lately - and don't you DARE deny it!- is...
'How much AP would I have now according to the old system? And what would my AP ranking be?!'

Well... here's the place to post and discuss it all!

Go back into the future and reminisce about the good ol' days of Armor Points!!

The Old Formula:

Each Game Rating is worth 2 points.
Each Comment is worth 2 points.
Each Post is worth 1 point.
Each Game Submission is worth 20 points.
Each Merit is worth 25 points.

Note: Likes do not have a point value because the Disqus system was added after the removal of AP.

The Old Rank Scale:

Wood Serf: 10 points
Iron Serf: 25 points
Gold Serf: 100 points
Wood Squire: 225 points
Iron Squire: 400 points
Gold Squire: 625 points
Wood Knight: 1200 points
Iron Knight: 1750 points
Gold Knight: 2250 points
Wood Lord/Lady: 3000 points
Iron Lord/Lady: 3500 points
Gold Lord/Lady: 4000 points
Wood Duke/Duchess: 4500 points
Iron Duke/Duchess: 5200 points
Gold Duke/Duchess: 6000 points
Wood Prince/Princess: 7250 points
Iron Prince/Princess: 8500 points
Gold Prince/Princess: 10,000 points
Wood King/Queen: 12,000 points
Iron King/Queen: 14,500 points
Gold King/Queen: 17,500 points

Note: Some people prefer to substitute "Silver" where it says "Iron".

Note 2: Where there's a slash, it means the rank depends on gender.


My Calculation:

1,464 Game Ratings * 2 = 2,928 Points from Game Ratings
1,700 Comments * 2 = 3,400 Points from Comments
3,319 Posts (incl. this one) = 3,319 Points from Posts
0 Game Submissions * 20 = 0 Points from Game Submissions
4 Merits * 25 = 100 Points from Merits

Total AP: 9749, putting me at Iron Prince.

Uh? AP based? Let me think, hope i remember them correctly...
2 for rating a game
2 for a comments (on game or userpages)
1 per forum post
submitting a game was... 20?
25 for a merit?

1077*2 = 2154, 4813*2 = 9626, 4198 (+1 for this comment = 4199^^), 24*25 = 600... all in all 16579 AP

Gold king... was 17.5k AP? So still roundabout 1k under gold, but i have surely reach iron.

If I did my math right I have 11710 points, putting me at Gold Prince. I ended the point system at Silver/Iron/Whatever Prince, so I really should be further along. Maybe I should be active again or something...

I'd be a Wood King. Hmm. I still earn AP at the slowest rate of anyone who is consistently active. ~6 yrs. ~12k AP. ~2k AP/yr ~5 AP/day

I earn about 30 AP a day, since I don't play any games, ever. I will never play a game. I'm too lazy.

There was a forum game just like this, but people stopped posting in it because it was a forum game.

5 Games Rated * 2 = 10
263 Comments = 526
3,920 Forum Posts = 3,921
0 Games Submitted = ten million minus ten million
1 Merits = 25

Total: 4,482 AP. 18 points shy of Wood Duke. Almost exactly 7/8 of my points are from forum posts.
