Score and Rating
Civ revolution has a few satistics on it's leaderboard that I am wondering about. Hi score being one, I see no indication as to what the game score is. Also rating which will move up or down by 0-30 for each game. Now I once played a game as Monguls and had zillions of cities & wonders and my high score went up. Winning or losing against higher ranking players seems to be better for your rating, can even increase from a lost game. Against lower ranking players, I have seen games where my win/lose ratio increased but gained nothing else. Nothing to win and everything to lose because a game crash against a bunch of newbies will punish your rating severely. What do other players know about Score and Rating ? Am I missing something ?
Well what me and a few of the higher rank members have found especially in FFA is that the type of win you get, you place in ranking in a game, who is in the game such as a high ranking player or not and streak determines the rating points you get. This has been tested strongly by myself and another guy name PointOneStar. Itz Deni3d faced me with Americans vs my Zulu in about 5 or 6 games. Him getting a winning streak plus beating a high rank player pushed him from rank 16 to rank 3 in no time. It really depends but in the end going against a bunch of low ranked people can really diminish your rating badly. I've seen as bad as 30-50 points for one game and that really happens big once your rank is really high.
Yes 10 or 20 rating is alot to gain at that rank, the difference between 16 and 3 might only be 100, plus if you lose, it doesn't sting badly. Civ does have 1st, second, third, 4th on the victory screen and as far as I know, it doesn't calculate your points until the game is finnished even if you are out an hour before. Just things to know that minimise the damage from unreliable connection, overheating console and failing eyesight of a miscoding programmer. The things that make Greek, Mongul and French even worse than they already are.. lol I'm not sure if you get better rating for a tech victory in a game where you could have won at 1000BC. I'm not sure a win streak boosts rating but it would explain a few things.
