Make Duel Medal Qualification = Wins, not Rating

Discussion and questions about the latest version of Chaos Reborn. Not for bugs, but for comments about the game play.

  • Proposal:

      (1) Rank only those players with 10 or more Duel wins;
      (2) Once given, sort rankings like now;
      (3) Remove the rating requirement for medals; and
      (4) Award medals to the top 10 ranked Duelists.
    Currently, there is confusion on what it takes to earn a medal in Duels. E.g., see this thread. Also, I suspect I'm not alone in actually playing less and sometimes not at all once I get my 10+ rating because I don't want to risk losing my medal eligibility, especially if I may be the only medal qualified player. Moreover, it's much harder to get and maintain a 10 rating (i.e., net wins) as opposed to earning 10 gross wins. All these factors actually can and do discourage Duel gameplay.

    So let's encourage Duel gameplay a bit more. Using 10 wins as the qualifier for a ranking, even new players would have a realistic chance to qualify for at least an iron medal so long as they play ALOT of matches against human opponents, even if they from time to time run in to experienced players who would destroy their net win rating. Playing more and more matches is how new players become experienced players, and experienced players don't have to feel as bad as they do right now when they repeatedly defeat new players.

    It is not easy to balance the legitimate needs for a competitive gameplay and with the goal of making the game accessible. The tweaks suggested above would better balance these needs than the status quo and do so with only incremental changes to what we have now that, hopefully, would not require much developer attention.

  • It should be just 10 matches, never mind 10 wins.

    Even if a new player loses all 10, so what? - Encourage them for taking part.

  • It's there any feedback about where you are with ranking or medals? The data from the result just send to drop into a black hole as far as I can see

    Only Duels against human players contribute to your Duel rankings. In that context, on the Duel UI screen, your results/rank (if any) currently is on the individual duel leaderboard on the left. If you join a guild, there is a guild leaderboard that shows on the right of the Duel UI, and your guild's ranking will be shown there.

  • I guess what I mean is there is no indication of what I still need to do to get myself or guild onto that table or win that medal.

    Not, yet. E.g., see the thread here for a proposed solution.
