Hey,

I've added some very basic 2v2 ranks.  This is just a leaderboard and does not impact your in-game or FFA iphone rank.

http://www.galcon.com/iphone/granks.php?gtype=2v2 

Enjoy!

So, the rankings page is only showing data as of like .. 2 days ago.  So not the full 10 days yet.  Give it another 8 days for accuracy ..

If anyone knows they've played way more rounds in the past 2 days than are being shown though, please mention it, and give a guess as to how many rounds you've played.

Thanks!

deuce - good question.  I kind of thought it would confuse people if they go into some servers and their rank is different than other servers.

Anyone care to comment on this?

I think it should show your 2v2 rank for 2v2 games, FFA rank for FFA games. 

People will figure it out. And if they don't on their own, then they will come to the forums, therefore building the community even more. 

It's a win-win.

I completely agree with Deuce. People might be confused at first, but that would be a natural reaction. After seeing it a bit, though, they'll figure it out.  Phil, definitely help them out, though, by making note of this "new feature" in the App Store description so that people see "2v2 ranking has just been added! Refer to (insert link to this thread here) for more information!" or something along these lines. In the next update, you can clear up issues that might be confusing in the help section, but for now, this should be enough. 

Another thing. Many people do not seem to realize that one can redirect a fleet or they don't know how to do so (by clicking the fleet and dragging to a planet). People also do not all know that you can change teams in 2v2 or how to do so (by clicking another player's name to switch places). Try to make these two points clear in the description in the App Store description and in the next update's help/tips section.

In general, I think we need to give (the majority of) people more credit when it comes to their intelligence lol. At the same time, we should try to make it as clear as possible (through the in-game Help section), the Forum maybe, and the App Store description.

P.S. The ranks do seem to be fixed now! :) Thanks! I think you should post 2v2 ranking requirements, though, and hopefully even let us access stats for 2v2 rankings, if at all possible ;)

Heh, I'm actually at work right now at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia lol... but I have to come back to this periodically T_T if I'm not addicted to Galcon, the game, then I'm definitely addicted to the forum/community~! Helppppppppppppppppp!!!!!!!!!

edit: forgot to complete some parentheses lol -.-

I totally agree era

Except for that part about giving more people credit for their intelligence. Let's not get too carried away. There are PLENTY of tards running free still. 

Deuce pulls out his trusty sniper and continues sniping all the "sub-par" intellectual minds out there ;)

Why not just incorporate Registering your name into galcon?

Have a another section like "News" or "Help" or Beginner TIps" that opens an online page where you can register your name, look at stats, and learn to play galcon (maybe some tutorial videos.)

EDIT: Basically What "Net Ranks" does. It opens a page in safari

Yup, that's more like it, I'm an admiral.  Nice and steady rank. :) Thanks.

Personally I think not.  As eragmus had said, many people do not realize a few simple things that we know all about like redirecting.  I think it would make people even more confused than necessary.

Naughty naughty sky_lark, when I said people don't seem to realize redirecting is possible or how to do so, I wasn't talkng about 2v2 ranking being shown in game lol. I said in a later post that 2v2 ranks should definitely be shown in game. Lol no cherry picking of me allowed Mr. Lark ;) Most people will figure out that ranks are changing from FFA to 2v2... Let's give them credit to figure that out. The few that don't, meh. They probably shouldn't even be playing Galcon lol.

I'm a little confused.  I was talking about the post you made July 11, 2009 at 2:13 PM (or whatever it is for your timezone, the 2 might be different but the :13 should be the same).  In that first paragraph, you talked about 2v2 flags.  And that's what I was saying.  The redirecting stuff and the 2v2 new flags were two separate ideas.  I used the redirecting thing as an argument because if people don't know how to redirect, I think they'll have trouble figuring out the 2v2 new flags.

I could see 2v2 new flags happening and with a bit of clarity it being all OK, but I think it's better left out.

PS. Yay top ten of 2v2 rankings!
