Score system for competitions

Under Consideration

It would be nice if you got points for competitions based on your placing rather than having a single winner. When one fast typist decides to participate in each competition, it makes it hard for anyone else to get anything out of it. First place could get X points, second place Y points, and so on. You could then also track a "total competition points" on people's profiles.

Related to https://10fastfingers.usere... in a sense that everybody should get rewarded, because today it isn't fair for average typists because they hardly win any competition.

Maybe something close to "elo" ranking system should do the trick? (forbid high elo players to go on low elo competitions for example)


Yea that will be cool


wRadion YES THANK YOU GREAT IDEA, i will support this fully!


In a mode called "competition", we must definitely accept the concept of winner / loser.

I can support the idea of ​​a score system (either variable or cumulative) based on the rank in each competition, in order to reward each one at its true value. But the concept of grouping users of the same level is, in my opinion, a dead end, as it already exists on a larger scale (only 1 group) and in this type of system there will always be winners and losers.

In addition, it will reduce the number of competitors in each group, which in some languages ​​(who are already struggling to find 5 participants) will be catastrophic since there will be no more winners at all. Finally, it will not change much for the less fortunate of each group who will always have the opportunity to complain.

The thing is, everyone would like to be the winner each time. But at the same time everyone is so flattered when he crushes as many people as possible. ;)
