jetro all those guys in fh that do that now are stat junkies, because the fh servers are tracked by BFtracks. if you go to bftracks and search their names, you will see they are the ones in the top 300 or so, every last one, or they are trying to get into the top 300. bftracks has essentially the same effect as bf2's stat system, a stat, is a stat, is a stat... so dont try to imply that we have this behavior without stats, because we do have stats, both ingame scoring and bftracks. just having ingame scoring causes these behaviours, imo. none the less adding stats tracking. it doesnt matter if its built-in or a seperate deal like bftracks, as soon as stats are been taken, the stat-junkies are at work farming away.

look at fh now vs bf2, just having ingame scoring and bftrack produces campers, and non-teamwork behavior in fh now. now look at what adding a built in stats system did for bf2. even worse behaviour.

@chanquad you can find that out by playing with people on a regular server, the same guys generally play the same server and are regulars. it doesnt take long to figure out through actual observation who plays well and who doesnt.

a time based system is as open to abuse as any other, whats to stop me from logging on an empty server and just leaving it running, whenever im not actually playing?

Don't quote me on this, but I think that there is a minimum requirement of players for the server to start stat-tracking.

If you get rank like I said it would be much easier to manage. If you find one way to abuse the system you could easily change the system.

And why would you want to abuse the ranking system if you dont get anything from it? Maybe respekt but why would a statpadder want that? :P This ranking system is good for newcomers. So that theyll know whom to follow and such.

I dont think that there will be much preasure on the server that runs the system. It will only be time.

JetroBut the same n ~stuff~ k since the circumstances for tank to tank combat are ever changing.

There will be statwhores regardless... yes, but there will be MORE if you officially rank something like bf2.

Espec since the community has no say in it. Servers can choose to have this or not.

For the sake of argument, lets all act like we want 'something' but do not know what exactly. Maybe we can still work something out?

I think more people will play FH if you add time ranking. Not in the sence that more people will be intrested of it, but the people who are playing will play much more.

There are alot of people who has fh but seldomly start playing it again because their place in BF2 will get worse. If you add time ranking the people will play more often wich leads to crammed servers of Joy ^^ I never seem to find a good full server..

NederbördYou don't have to play on ranked servers, it's on the ranked servers these obsessed award collectors run around on, I guess.

out of all the mods ive played, NOT 1 is offically ranked (theres the alternative ranking) but thats just for fun!
