Currently, FOUR GRAND ADMIRALS!!! :: Jun 4, 2009 @ 10:04pm

Alright, im sorry, i had too. There are currently Four Grand admirals and i need to take this point to point out a slight flaw in the ranking system.

Currently, the top four accounts are all grand admiral, and there are only five tripe stripes. So that means that if you play them, it doesn't affect you at all. If someone manages to beat one of them 60/40, which should be an awesome feat, then you should be rewarded for it. You dont get any weight points that will help you rank up. So at least make it so the grand admiral games count as triple stripe weight because there are so few, as there are. At this point there is absolutely NO incentive to play against grand admirals. If i was a little one stripe i would not want to ruin my win % by playing against the accounts, MyM.LegenD, MyM.DaemoN, Deuce, or HeFeweizeN. I know era already pointed this out, but i thought it should be addressed again. 

Just a thought....

Deuce, what your telling me is your sad you caant play against yourself and want more 3 stripes to become Grand Daddys so they can play you? You can play your clanmate Daemon.

No, that's not what he's saying.  He's saying there aren't enough 3-stripes to add enough weight for someone to become grand admiral, now that 5 of the 3-stripes have become grand admiral.

Deuce.

uhh...so as u see all the GAs are Me, esparano, ionizefire and manutd...

all but maybe 1 or 2 of the three stripes is my account, Manutds, and ionizedfire...

so since they r leaving...there will only be like 2 or 3 to play. which means that another GA is probablu near impossible i think unless ur already a 3 stripe or something. but idk i didnt calculate it.

Edit: Nvm...3/6 of the 3 stripes is US. the other 3, are bah, Solspin, and RisenKnight...but solspin and risenknight arent on much.

Doesn't matter ... ?

The standards are set WAY too low right now. When they are returned to being reasonable, I will play again. Until then, I'll be sticking with 2v2.

I'm in no way saying any of you aren't legit.. I'm just saying it's ridiculous that the standards have been set this low, and that after the first GA, they weren't immediately changed back. I mean, GA is HALF as hard to get as it used to be, which is just ridiculous.

people realize that even these GA's wouldn't have been doable without creating multiple accounts...

not to demean any of your your skills at all.  ;)  But ranks are truly meaningless.

If Galcon had 10 times the player base, and Phil upped the weight requirements to match, and THEN implemented a 1 device per weight rule instead of a 1 account per weight rule...  I might start believing in ranks again.

Deuce, I agree with you. I want the ranks to be harder. I was able to get 3 stripes in like 30-1hr. I did that for TheFallenOne and DivineWorld. However, the 3 stripes were hard to find. Anyway, yes i agree. The ranking needs to be tweaked.

Btw, can u add me(Socratic) and pianoman(Esparano) to the list on your GA thingy. :)

EDIT: and the_musician, it actually was possible, but its just we all had multiple 3 stripes. But there were others besides my (two 3 stripes), manutds two 3 stripes, and ionizedfires three 3 stripes, and esparanos 3 stripe. There was Bah, Solspin, RisenKnight, Blipblop, OnToTheNext, and a couple more that i forget.

thats like 13 Three Stripes.

This shows the flaws of this ranking system.
It's the system that is wrong, not the numbers.

Then raise the numbers required, but as to which numbers are for you to choose.
