the rankings are cluttered with people who havnt played a ranked game for a year or what not, making them completely inaccurate. the fact you can play a multi account alone also totally screws things up.

this has been brought up before and ill bring it up again.

if we want rankings to mean anything at all, please grey out those who have been inactive for x amount of time, x being a few monthes perhaps. if they come back, let them be ungreyed again. and or, add a date on their profile of last game played.

as for multi accounts, simply adding a check on IP to winbolo.net game tracking, and if 2 people of same ip are playing, have that game not count.
if that isnt acceptable, have winbolo.exe check for other winbolo.exe in tasks, and if they exist, have .net not count. either option is fine. only possible problem with this are people that use 2 computers to play each other at home, maybe siblings. this would be same ip. but that is really a small issue compared to the vast number of people that dont play in their own household. those people can just play without rankings, or have their own little ranking for themselves, as .net is intended, i presume, for people against other people, not private games at your own house.

i dont see any of this as difficult, and i only see benefit to adding this

Yah, so is 'Let's find a better respawn method'. I'd like to see both done.
