New Alliance Scoring System

Instead of just doing alliance by total Score of top 50 planets. How about we actually take planet ranks into account and score them like in a Cross Country race.

If you finish 1st you add 1 point to your alliance, if you finish 2nd you add 2 points to your alliance, if you finish 3 points you add 3 points etc... The alliance with the lowest score at the end wins. It would change things up a bit. Just an idea. Of course it would only count alliance who meet a minimum alliance count.

Re: New Alliance Scoring System

While the idea seems wonderfull, it lacks practical validity. What would the minimum be (open for endless debate and we have enough debate already :P), how would you rank non-limit alliances AND keep those alliances interested if you do not rank them at all, why not use avg. rank then (which is the same basicly). More disadvantages can be found i'm sure.

Most importantly: why would you want to change it? What downsides does the current scoring system have? Which disadvanatges would it solve? What advantages of the old system would we lose? What new disdadvantages would we create? How can it be abused?

Summary: if you want to change the system, first define the current systems' disadvantages and then name how this new method would be better.

Re: New Alliance Scoring System

Alliance Quality Scoring (OP); Alliance Quality Scoring (reply) ... alternative proposal I first proposed a few years ago.

In hindsight it's probably all a bit confusing. In short, the formula I made took into account the attacker's ally size and ally score then manipulated within a range relative of the target's. It's not a variation on alliance score but an alternative to the Alliance Point System.

Re: New Alliance Scoring System

All I'm saying is it would be nice to get more than just score to actually determine the winner. With this way its possible for an ally to just dominate the t10 but still lose, thus flag-shipping would not be an option and would allow for the more well rounded ally to win.

Re: New Alliance Scoring System

its hard to get a balanced thing like that into order i suppose.. after all, wasnt the current "Points" system introduced with an idea of such in mind?

neways, id greet an idea that would allow an alliance to pwn their gangbangers in real rankings as well - like ult is doing now to fang/ct :d

Re: New Alliance Scoring System

Guessing it wouldn't, Psi.

Honestly probably best removing Alliance points (at least from universe screen and dump files) until I work out if there's a worthwhile way of implementing them. Less confusion.
