Hi everyone, I have more news to share about points and ranking on AG3, and wanted to lump in ranking and leaderboard discussions here as well.

The previous topic was here:
http://armorgames.com/community/thread/6441505/ideas-and-discussions-about-migrating-armor-points-to-agv3

---

I hope you're sitting down ...

For the "TL;DR" people among you: everyone will essentially have their Armor Points reset to zero. AG3 will likely not migrate any points from AG2 with our current setup and direction.

Unless something drastic happens, or there's enough people who vocalize their unhappiness about this to Dan, this is how AG3 will start out.

After our meeting about Achievements yesterday, I was brought in the loop on how "points" will work on AG3.

In a nutshell...

AG3 "Armor Points" as a sum total will calculate your "AG Score". We will still refer to them as "points", but the site will show them as your "score".

AG3 points will be awarded primarily through the winning of game-related Achievements, and each achievement will have different amounts of points attached (easier achievements will give fewer points, for example).

The achievements we award for AG2 legacy features (previous rank, forum post count, etc) will not award AG3 points.

I do NOT believe we will award points for rating games, or if we do, it will be a minimal amount like the 2 points we give you now. If this is the case, we WILL migrate some points.

The examples Larry gave yesterday about Achievements showed some being worth as many as 15 or 30 points EACH.

I will re-open this topic when I have more information to answer questions.

[quote][quote]I had an idea of people who had a certain title would play someone with a lower rank or title and the winner would gain the higher title in exchange for the lower title
[/quote]

Once again, I don't like this idea for the same reason as the last one.


I don't get this one so much. Do you mean someone who's Kind/Queen could play a serf, and if the king/queen lost, they'd become a serf, simply because of one loss?[/quote]

That's exactly why I don't like the idea I triple-quoted.

Hmm, the gambling aspect of trading points will get ugly if users start accusing one another of hacking, etc.. That's probably enough motivation to NOT have this as a feature.

There should be a higher rank than king/queen cuz theres a lot of users that are king/queen that would like it i think

We don't even know if there will be ranks in AG3. But I think the idea has been surpassed, the only thing higher than King is God, and that's cormyn basically.

Cormyn:

We're not currently planning on assigning a rank based on Reputation. Our ranks will be points-based, which will be game-based.


There will be ranks on AG3. A few pages later we were informed that Dan wants to stick with the medieval theme also.

So the ranks will be given out based on Reputation by in game achievements. Fair enough.

Answering the previous the question, no. Nothing will be higher than King/Queen.

Not reputation. Just in game achievements. Reputation will be forum based only i think.

Instead of having something higher than King/Queen, how about we add new ranks in the middle, like "count"? No important reason, but it wouldn't be that hard, and right not it takes a LOT of points to get up a rank...

The guys at the office like GoM's list of ranks, and I believe they're also leaning towards the "top player becomes emperor" idea that was suggested as well.

i think we should move our ranks on our profile page so we don't have to scroll all the way down to see the ranks just because the bio is too long

Hmmm. Maybe ranks such as jester? Otherwise you could take the top 50 and make a round table clan type deal. Or along withthe ranks make some classes.

New ranks have been suggested already. I do like the round table idea though.

Maybe they should make a troll rank too.

Has the design been discussed? Or will it stay similar to what it is?
