Ideas of a new Ranking that reflects the Levels of Software

Post by DocvalE » Sun Nov 26, 2017 09:39 AM

Hello Hackers,

I talked to some of you and got good response constantly. I guess it´s time to write it in public.

Well, this Idea was born cause I miss a destructive element and the down repping of some players.

What do you think, if we split the rep in 2 stats? Let me explain.

The first part contains the rep which the player gets by upgrading the HW and the SW.
We can call it basic or equipment Reputation.

The second part increases, if the player uses his skill and hack other players. I prefer to call it Skill Reputation.
Srep is all the rep he earns if he finishes a mission, loots a miner and buy SW too. To buy SW gives you x Rep for both. An algo increases Erep only.
If a player loses some Rep in any case, the Srep will be reduced only. The player reaches 0 Srep at a certain point and get attacked again. In that situation the player will lose Erep and now the big change. One of his sw stats will be reduced randomly.
Of course we will have a safe zone for the beginners. How high, that is the point to think about or better to calculate it. Just a feeling right now 2k rep around i would say. If a player reaches this point, he will not be able to lose Rep anymore. So he hasn´t to start at ZERO. *laugh*

Let´s have a look on the basis of an example.

To handle it a bit easier we assum all HW is 500 Erep and every SW give you 2 more Erep.

The player has HW maxed (500 Erep) and all SW at 5.0 (8 * 50 * 2= 800 Erep). Without any Srep he has a shown amount of 1.300 Rep in the final ranking.

If an other player with 1k rep attacks him and loots the miner, the victim loses 2 rep. Cause he has no Srep and cause the SW is direct conected to the Erep, he will lose 0,1 of a SW randomly.

If he has 1 Srep, he will lose 0,1 but has 1 Srep left.

*This is just an example. That player is still in protection zone. It´s to keep the numbers at a low level and easy to understand.*

The Jammer would force all players to act carefully, like real hackers or the might lose some apps, packages, Rep and/or SW.
The ranking will show the sum of both as one Reputation.
The guild.app can show it for guild stuff.

This changes will result in real battles, guild fights and the ranking shows a somehow realer overview and not that, sorry, fake numbers.
The good guilds will establish classes and only accept players with a specialisation that fits into their tactical plans. The benefit for all and exspecially for Dev is, all are battling eachother and no more crying like, "it´s boring...always miner grinding...."

Benefits:
  • We don´t have to change the mechanism itsself, I like it and the limits really fits to my mind.

  • The direct connected SW will definitely avoid the down repping, cause they will lose their SW.

  • New players know who might have a good SW and who have not.

  • Real guild battles can start to get some special players down.. I MEAN REAL DOWN :mrgreen:

  • New events possible with additional tasks for you and your guild and/or all others.



I am pretty sure most of you are able to assume some more effects.


Thanks for reading and I hope you like and will support it.
I recommend you all to vote. It´s nice for me to hear a good response, but without a countable response of your optinion we wouldn´t change anything. So please register and Stand up for your rights people of hackers

wow thats a really good idea.. perhaps a leaderboard which will show only the rep gained from hacking and doing missions and not softwares?

The participation for the voting makes me really sad.
Seems to me like the majority of you like to play hackers in Farmville style. Collecting flowers and send sweet hearts without any real aim -.-

Doc,
Great info bro! How about for the sake of ease we ask dev to add another "rep" scale where the software is the only thing considered. So, when you tap on a players name, you get:

Name: Deadmau5.
Guild Name: It's a mau5trap! [TRAP]
Reputation: 4934
Defense: 99.2
Offense: 77.2


where the offense/defense is an average of software levels. This way the individual levels are still obscured but you will have a basic idea of the offensive/defensive power of the player.

I like to use the KISS method. keep it as simple as possible to try to stay bug free.

The numbers I used for the example are the real averages of my offense/defense. As you can see, my software power is way lower than most would expect for my rep. My software is easily in the top ten of the game but I don't chase rep so it is deceptive.

Let me know what you think or if you have any tweak ideas to what I have posted. I will approach dev when we get a simple way to achieve out goal!

Thanks

Deadmau5

Thanks for the info. That is a solution for time to my mind, cause it will not fix the big issue for a complete game play. Anyway it´s a start to the right direction and the new player are able to see what kind of player he/she might wants to attack.
The calculation of the stats would be nice to know.
Wish me luck that I can finish the world first class guide :mrgreen:

And to the 2 who expect problems. I have for every point you might concerned about a solution, or you are one of those players that made me sick.
Tell me the points you might expect probs and I will show you YOU ARE WRONG 8-)

peach and out Doc
