Hey, im just curious as to if theres any ranking system for DOF.

Many games have special icons next to the users ID name showing some kind of Ranking system or reward system.

I was just curious as to if there is any of this at all, and if there arent any Rank system what about a Badge Reward system, for example every Beta Tester would get a badge showing that they where beta testers beside their names?

At this point we don`t have anything specific in mind at this point.

We will use player`s feedback from Closed Beta Stage 1 to come up with the system - most likely we`ll give Titles/Rank based on all the assets (size of the city army e.t.c) and achievements in MMORTS (number of victories e.t.c).

There is a chance this will be a dual title, like "Broke Warlord" for a player who won lots of PvP games but is quite broke at the moment.:)

Mhm, just a simple badge would be wonderful.

I don't know if any of you have played Company of Heroes.

Well something like that system.

nope never played it, but i was thinking something in the line of titles for how the player plays and not his ranking. is he a defending player then give him the title turtle champion or something along those lines.

Battlefield 1942, 2, and 2142 Had good online ranking systems. So does EQ2 if you have EQ2players added to your account you can get worldwide and sever wide ranks. for top 100..

I used to love Battlefields ranking system with the medals and statistics was fun to try to stay on the top 100

I like achievement systems but as this is not a Games for Windows game, I would suggest you could use it to not only give the player regonition for things he accomplishes but also as rewards, for instance finishing 10 quests could give the player 500 stone or something (complete random example). Would encourage players to actually care about a ranking type system and reward those who do 'well' in completing them.

I think there will be an overall level of your race which combines the army and city levels. That should basically be your rank.

Oh course an online ranking system that should weaker kingdoms would be like an online HITLIST

I see no one has posted here in awhile so i dont know if it's a dead thread, but for achievements in the game would be great. I under stand how everyone would want a ranking board for the guys that have the most wins for ranks and stuff. One of the biggest thing in the newer MMORPG now are the achievements and diffient title's you can get like "leroy jenkins" in WoW. I know someone post about you guys are going to wait for feed back from the beta testeres. it's would cool to work for a weird title like

Deadeye
"of infiniti loses"

lol well chew on some of that stuff

I would say this thread is more on a pause then anything else as it is waiting for feedback both of testers and devs. As for achievments it is only natural for a game especially one like this to cover many topics e.g. ecomony,army,castle and wins/losses. All theese i would imagine would be covered furthermore the game also contains many other aspects like fire and weather with bonuses so it is likly thoose would be included to. And yes it is very unusual for any game to have no fun or funny achievments wether it is a friendly fire achievment or a demo of your own city by setting it ablaze all of which probably be covered giving the scope of the game. Therefore i would put this thread on hold as i cant see any other points worth making untill the questions already outstanding have been answered once the testers have given feedback (should be a month or so given beta timings.)

One draw back to showing ranks and game victories is people auto-quitting.

If you are really good people dont want to waste there time playing.





Shouldnt be in a problem in DoF because well you have to fight :P

It's always annoying when you can't actually get anyone to play against you unless you smurf : p
