Rescaling of Respect Ranks

Wed 26 Mar 2014, 09:20 by bencelot



Hey all, in preparation for the super competitive and teamwork oriented respect system coming next version, I have just rescaled everyone's respect values and cleared your respect ranks. I've had to do this because the new system is completely different and all the old respect values earned by the old system are now invalid. Basically the new respect system rewards teamwork and completing the game objective, which is different from getting a good KD. Thus the old ranks aren't accurate anymore and needed to be scaled back a bit. Rest assured though that everyone else has been scaled back as well, which means that your respect rating relative to everyone else is exactly the same! If you had the 50th highest respect before you still have the 50th highest respect now. The values behind the scenes have just changed a bit to work with the new system.

As for your ranks, they have been cleared. This is because the old requirement to get a rank was getting 50 kills, but the new requirement is to have played in 5 ranked matches. As no one has played in any ranked matches yet no one will satisfy the requirement necessary to having a rank. All you have to do however is play 5 ranked matches when next version comes out and you'll get your rank back again, maybe even higher than last time if you play well! This also ensures that only players who have participated in the new system will get to show off their respect rank, so if you see someone with a rank now you will know that it has been earned legitimately.

Anyway I hope to release version 0.93 in a few days, so get ready to come on and play some ranked matches! These ranked matches will completely revolutionize the way Mutant Factions is played and result in far more exciting and competitive gameplay.

So version 0.93 is supposed to be 1.0?(Will you release that version,then advertise?Or is it another preparation stage?)

It will be yet another preparation release. I still need to release a v0.94 with updated maps and graphics. But as I've just completed two huge system reworks (respect and community credits) I figured I might as well release them to get your feedback. Anyway this respect redesign wasn't a part of the original plan and was meant to come after v1.0. But then I realised how much trouble it would cause to have to rescale everyone's respect ranks AFTER v1.0 (with thousands of players) instead of before (with just a handful). So it had to be done now. Should be good though as I expect ranked servers to be far more addictive and eventually become the main type of server played in.
