    Default Online ranking system

    Hello everybody,

    I find WipeOut HD (Fury) a very good game with a lot of different racing options, but...

    what I really miss is a good online allround ranking system. You,ve got a record for every single event and a rating system for the time you've played online, but not an allover ranking system.

    My proposition:

    We have 24 courses in 4 speedclasses, which means:

    96 different speedlaps
    96 different time trials
    96 different races (computer)
    28 different zoneraces
    28 detonatorraces

    Totally 344 different races with rankings + 1 online ranking = 345 rankings.

    Liverpool Studio can easily add all the rankings, this gives a number. If you haven't played a race you get 100.000 point. So if you're number 1 in everything you would have 345 x 1 = 345 points. If you didn't play anything, you've 345 x 100.000 = 34.500.000 points. This points would be the new ranking system.

    I didn't include the multiplayer-race, because you can't influence the races which a played online. I also think that if you have a cheater or an unbeatable time, this has only a 1/345 influence on the ranking system, so there are possibilities.

    With this calculation, you have to play al the games, all the tracks and all the speedclasses, so it is a really good allround ranking system.

    I know this, but i want an online overall ranking system, so that i know i'm on i.e. ranking 1.543 overall of all registered WipeOut-players and i can work on that ranking.

    Hi Prttoettoet,

    What a funny name you have!! The first time I saw that I was ROFL. The ranking system you are talking about is only seen in Wipeout Pulse. www.wipeout-game.com

    Welcome to the zone and be sure to check out our social group; The Flying Dutchmen. You are most welcome, it is under your User CP.

    Good luck and see you soon, greetz Mad-Ice

    @prttoettoet

    Btw nice name, shame i cant read or speak it

    Your ranking system is flawed as players like problem solver who is legendary in the zone would probally rank quite low overall because he has no interest in all the other modes.
    Some players specialise in certain things so an overall rank score as you describe would really only indicate players who play everything and not recognise the true elites who are masters of their chosen speciality.

    To be honest the leaderboards are ok IMO, im glad we dont have race statistics as from previous bad experiences i have encountered only leads to cheating, pulling , boosting and general abuse and always attracts internet lowlife no one wants.

    At first i didnt see it this way but over time i like the way the game is. I do not need a ranking system to see how good i am. I know how good i am and I know who is better than me.

    the link above to the leaderboards is propper coll i never seen it before. Someone has even entered my details. How very kind

    I seem not to care what my ranking is in any game, and as a consequence of this, I tend to think that ranking systems are not worth the trouble, particularly since they all seem to be inaccurate in one way or another, especially any system that tries to be some measure of overall excellence. But I could be wrong. Or at least wrong by someone else's preferences.

    I don't really agree. I think the light of WipeOut is goning out. The personel records set are unbeatable (I don't know how they did it --> respect), the aren't many online races. I don't like the fighting part. So online isn't funny anymore and local also because the records can't be broken. But I think that an allround ranking gives more possibilities to race offline with a goal.

    ???

    Records are broken all the time ...
    My only worry, I must admit, is the records made by using "BSB" (before Fury), some of my own personal PBīs included (SL, that is). Iīll never be able to better my PB at Ubermall SL for an example ...

    Online is always fun ...

    Ranking System:
    I simply donīt get your idea of an online overall ranking-system, at least I donīt see how it could mirror the actual performance of the wipers - and very much agree with jasmin-jade: Such an overall system is absolutely ridiculous ...

    An example:
    JJPAP vs. chaos80 (my Team Nordic-friend)
    Overall Iīm ranked (way ) over chaos80. Jubiii, Iīm the best ... oh,no ... By the way, Iīm not ... I just raced a hell of a lot of different disciplines and classes compared to him. Heīll still beat me 8 out of 10 times we race. And if he ever chose to do TTīs and SLīs, he would beat me as well. Unfortunately

    But I like your idea of an overall ranking-board - it just have to be very differentiated (like Connavarīs site)

    See you online (maybe)
