Ranking System Problems
« on: January 23, 2010, 07:58:28 PM »
Can anyone tell me why depending on the time of day my points total and thereby my overal rank various by about 4000 points and about 150 places in the standings? How can my point total drop and then go back up again? Do different starfleet commander computers have different information on them? I believe the higher figure is the correct one for me.

look at the people in the same rank area as you.  you will see tons of people that are 1-2 points off from you.  if they get a good victory, boom they shoot past you for a couple of hours until you get a good victory, then you shoot past them.

only way to keep moving up is to get more victory's then them and quicker

When you're fleet is out and the server does a leaderboard update, ALL points spent on those ships + the fleet points you have  for those ship no longer show up for you. I noticed that a while ago. You still 'own' the points but there just not there.

So if you send lets say 10 arty = 40  resource spent + 10 fleet points. You temporarily lose 50 points off the leaderboard.

That explains the wierdness I'm seeing and it fits exactly.

I hope that they throw the programmers a few cans of mountain dew, some cheetos and lock them in a room until they get the rankings to count everything that exists at the time the calculation is done  :twisted:

In my case the points difference is around 4000, far more than the value of my ships out on missions.
