So last time we had a Grand Admiral contest, nobody won because it was impossible with how I had the rankings set up.  So every week until we get a Grand Admiral in Classic Galcon Fusion, I'm going to adjust the ranks a notch.  So start playing now to build up your rank, so next week when I tweak them, you'll be ready to make your move!  I expect someone to reach Grand Admiral within the next two weeks.

 

THE PRIZE: As apologies for the last contest, the prize will be BOTH a Galcon T-Shirt of your choice AND a one-of-a-kind piece of hand-made galactic artwork* by Phil himself, sure to be worth millions someday!
 
Have fun playing!
 
-Phil and Nanno
 
* It's not going to be that picture show above, since I already gave that one to someone else, but it'll be something just as cool!

That image was actually colored pencil + markers + water color on paper.  Then I scanned it in, inverted it, and added a bit of glow.

The winner will be getting a new piece of artwork - I'll send them the original in the mail as well as display a slightly enhanced version on the website for everyone to envy :)

Great!

Will the new rating system be permanent?

And will you be taking our suggestions (such as higher required win %'s and lower weight?)

Roxie yes GA was possible before but I would really like to get to GA once in my galcon career before I hang up my galcon hat.  Maybe Phil could lower the win % required for all ranks.

Ga is not impossible with the current ranking system, it's just that no one really has the time to play 24/7 to get the rank. But hopefully, these tweaks will fix that.

That saddens me. I'll pretty much be gone for the next 3 weeks straight... That totally takes me out of the runnings. =c

Anyway, as long as you promise to not make it too hard it's all good. I would say aim for what me and tx were talking about with lower weight and higher win%. If you make it too easy I'll probably cry when I get home and find out.

Increase the win% requirement as you lower the weight!

In teams. That's not what we're going for. Classic GA is the only way to go. Right? Phil, it is classic only, right? Can you not change the teams, crash, stealth, ect. rankings but just the classic?
