I highly doubt that you are going to be at the top of the list from just rating games, and the rating functionality will never be fully removed. I think that removing the rating function or removing the armor points attached to it will make for an increase in game review spam, and that is bad enough as is.

I don't think that it should be removed, It's not like Armor Points matter much, they won't get you anywhere else in life, but if it did, and people spent a living getting Armor Points, then you should remove it.

That is why they have a filter that cleans out the spam.

You can get pretty high up there but never the highest ranks since they don't have that many games to get that much AP. Still though you can get a good rank. If you look for this months leaders all of them just spam game ratings and the leader did that all this month and has gotten over 3000AP.

To be honest, is it really that big of a deal? It is just points on a website, and I have never looked at monthly ratings before today. While there is spam on the website, you cannot punish the rest of us simply because some do rating spam. Not all of us like to chat on the forums, or are articulate with words to write a thorough game review, so we do our part by rating games.

That's not what is wrong with it. I don't mind people rating games that they have ACTUALLY played.I'ts that most spam raters haven't even played the game.

It's still rating spam though.
I highly doubt that these people have actually played 1500+ games in one month time to actually give it a good rating.
It's not really a big deal for me. It's just really annoying what people actually do to gain Armor Points.

Tell me about it... and when we discipline them for it, they call us names. Or when we clean up spam, they get mad at us for taking away the ill-gotten points. /sigh

Anyway, the whole points system is splitting into two pieces and getting an overhaul. rating spam won't exist in AG3 -- I'm building it myself.
