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 &quotoints" 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 &quotoints", 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.

Maybe they should make a troll rank too.


literal LOL

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


Ron has been rebuilding the entire profile page, so even what users saw on the closed beta will be changing drastically. I can't give too much away, but imagine if "Armor Games" were a game... with goals to achieve, etc.

Well, trolls would be sticking with the theme though, right? :P

If I lose my points, what will happen to the armatar?

The answer is different for AG2 and AG3, so I will answer both:

AG2: If you lose enough AP to go below the minimum for your armatar, you get the starry shield armatar.

AG3: As far as I know, there will be no AP requirement for armatars.

So far, yes, this is correct. Everyone will have full access to all AG2 armatars other than the seasonal armatars. And as we've said in the armatar thread, we'll be introducing new game-themed armatars.

All future armatar discussion needs to go in the appropriate thread.

I think that the game should have some higher ranks and the leader boards she be a little bit harder to get higher too

I know I sound like a big nood right now, but whats the deal with the AP for posting in the community? I heard somewhere that you earn no AP at all for posting in the forums. Is this true?

That will be true on AG3. On AG2, the Newcomers Forum and Forum Games are worth no AP.

Hey Patrick, how do you know these things? Anyway, on AG2 we can do five things to get points. On AG3 will there be other things used to get points?

I read the rules and the help page when I joined, and I also read the stickies in this forum.

AP in AG3 will be for achievements.

Are you using score as in armor points? Yeah, they're resetting them because they're changing the AP system.

Yea sorry I meant armour points. Are they changing it so you cannot get points from forum posts? What I've read so far seems to tell me that you can only get armour points from achievements in game

As far as I know, you still get point for posts and comments.
