I have a super cool idea of how we could have avatars (even though we don't exactly get to chose what they look like) and our rankings displayed quickly and at the glance of an eye, and using it you can determine a player's status, strategy type, ect. Okay, so once account linking is in, then what WBN can automatically do is total up all your stats (system to prevent stat padding should be be on maximum alert first Wink ) and then based upon those rankings, award a different coloured bolo item (pillbox, base, lgm, tank, ect.) for how good that stat is. For example, let's say joe schmoe gets lots of pillboxes, he can get a superior coloured pillbox (red, gold ect.) by his name on the forums (where an avatar would go) to signify that, along with all his other little stat images, what kind of player he is (yellow tank, cuz he doesnt kill many tanks, ect). This would also be seen on your profile. I'm not exactly sure what numbers and rankings would go with what colors, or rather; which colours are more superiour, and how much of this stat do people have to get to get this colour of this item? ect.


Although I have worked out that there would be different coloured:


BASES (bases taken)

PILLBOXES (pillboxes captured/stolen from others)

LGMS (shot) (lost) (not sure on shot to lost ratio)

TANKS (killed someone else) (died) (not sure of ratio, but this is to prevent people from doing nothing but dueling on a map like tix-tox pillbox)

Not sure of these ones (ideas?);

OPENS PLAYED (how many)

STRICTS PLAYED (how many)

TOURNEYS PLAYED (duh)

(i guess using these you could wager what type of game this player likes)

and finally:

STRICT RANKING

TOURNEY RANKING

(not sure of those two though, because some people pad their stats, and some people don't care about rankings, and just wanna get a jist of what type of player theyre looking at)

Perhaps It should go like karate colours with black being the best and white being the weakest? Of course we might have to reset stats so everyone gets a fair start at it first.

Ideas? Suggestions for Ranking (Numerical) ideas for color/ how much of a stat number coordination ect.

And This would be displayed under a player's name where an avatar would go, and be displayed in a row of four (pills, bases, lgms, tanks) and a row of another 3, but not sure about another row of two for rankings, but it just might be MORE handy then the number of different game types played, but ill just have to see!

We should also have some symbol to show seniority. (i.e. How long they have been signed up with WinBolo).

okay, it would go something like this for each item, depending on a how many you take to how many is taken from you ratio. (rather than using stats on a player's page, as anyone can kill lots of tanks, but how many times did they die in the process)

ok: (note: all of these would be an average for ALL the games you play)

White : if you lose more of these than you gain, you get a white
Gold : Get 1, lose 1
Yellow : 2-1
Orange : 3-1
Blue : 4-1
Green : 5-1
Purple : 6-1
Brown : 7-1
Black : 8-1 And anywhere above.


I will post this, but it may be edited later to fix ratios after I test it against some game logs.

The idea of ranking avatars has come up a few times. The current thoughts are that we would give out "WinBolo Supporter" avatars. These would be for thoes people that have registered WinBolo and/or donated to WBNs costs. This will be to give recognition to the people that are helping the WinBolo community.

The avatars would not be just shown on the forums but also shown on the players profile page etc.

In answer to Madd Maxxs suggestion of showing how long the have been signed up for, that information can be gathered by looking at Joined date which is displayed next to the posters name.

Like most things this will happen "one day".

lol, yes, I know that Elvis, but if we implemented this, we could just have some sort of number/colour to represent it (i.e. the number of days they have been signed up)INSTEAD of using a line of text.

That isn't a very good representation of seniority since half of us were around before winbolo.net was created and we all signed up on the same night it was released.

On another note I vote for emoticons to be removed from the forums... PLEASE!
