Game ranks on profiles

74 posts in this topic

I think a couple of more ranks (D/E) should be implemented, it would make the system a lot better imo.

But would it be possible to introduce, say, a "D" rank for a fixed 0%? I know the other rank percentages aren't fixed but I think (like the "S" rank) a fixed 0% rank would be a nice touch :)

Yeah that would be nice.

I agree with a default D rank for games that are at 0%. I don't think it will turn people away from the site because they don't like to see that, if it's at )% and on their profile I'm sure they realise it's not much to brag about and a bad grading right lol?

I was just looking at the profiles, and I think it would be nice to be able to sort our games by grade also, in the same we can by percentage. So for grade it would be A's at the top sorted by percentag within A's. I'd like to be able to group all my lower graded ones together and see if there's any I can improve, be nice to see them all together.

You can already sort them by percentage completed...which is almost the same thing.

I have B's thrown in with my A's and C's in with the area with most of my B's. I agree this wouldn't be a super high priority, but I'd still like to see it someday. Instead of sorting maybe we could click on a letter and it take a new page that lists only our games that are ranked with that letter.

I think there definitely needs to be more ranks because the fact that you can get an "A" with 35% doesn't really tell you much about your performance in the game. Also, an average ranking would be pretty cool, because just having the Average Completion doesn't account for the difficulty of the games in question

If getting an A doesn't tell you that you're doing better than average then why would any other ranks?

No, I mean if an A can be earned by achieving 35%, then it doesn't tell you where you are in all that much detail as it hands the award to people who have a completion level anywhere within a 65% range. If you added D, E and F grades for example, then you could award the A grade at higher completion levels, giving greater precision to you at a glance

If the A was at 35%, I don't imagine it changing much after adding a D, E, and F. If you take a look earlier into the thread (actually, it's quoted higher up on this page) you'll see the reasoning for it. It's to match a popular ranking system, so it's traditional in a sense.

The rankings are based on the %age earned by the player against the average %age for the game. If there are more ranks then you can have narrower bands for each grade, so less variation over the course of the grade. As we have 4 ranks, S, A, B and C then it seems reasonable to assume that each rank represents 25% of players. (S for the top 25%, C for the bottom 25% etc.) By adding just one extra grade, the boundaries for each grade change so that instead each grade represents 20% of the players. So therefore the more grades there are available, the clearer your standing within the community. If, say, 4 more grades were added, then those receiving a 'G' would know that they were in the bottom 12.5% of players whereas at the moment those who would be in that band (and have 'C' ranks) only know that they are in the bottom 25% of players. Notice that under this system, the 'C' rank would apply to those who would have a low 'A' currently.

This assumes that the grades are allocated with an equal number of players per grade, but I trust you get my point

That doesn't quite work out the way you think. Say only one out of one hundred guys has a Platinum for a game. That S only represents 1% of the players. It's all dependent on everyone else's percentage, so you can't really generalize the amount of players to a letter grade.

No, I realise that the grades don't have equal %ages, I just used that as an example to illustrate my point.

I've never taken much value from those ranks. I think the space would be better used by having a platinum trophy icon for the games in which you've earned it, rather than that platinum colored bar on the side.

I would add an U (Unplayed) for 0%, like the S for 100%.

Is there an explanation at the page about this, beside this thread?

I have 2 "E" ranks for games that a friend of mine let me test them out, so I think "E" is definitely the lowest rank

"E" ranks are for games that you have earned, at least, one trophy but, not many more.  The lowest rank you will see is an "F" for a game that you installed but, never earned a trophy in.

It's not entirely that, certain games like Killzone 3 and Capcom Arcade Cabinet can still show F ranks with just one trophy.

I'd make it alphabetical, because right now I have no idea what rank is higher than other xD (S maybe?).

Let's say A for the best, B for the second best, then C, D, E...

The rankings are as followed (from highest to lowest)

 

S, A, B, C, D, E, F

 

You can only get an S for 100% a game, while in the overwhelming majority of times the only time you can get an F is if you have 0%.  This ranking system mimics some games such as the Naruto games and Resident Evil 5, to mention a few, so it is not out of ordinary.

 

Hope this helps  :awesome:

This is true, but don't let this stop you getting games with DLC or buying DLC that you do not want.  Ultimately your level depends on how many trophies and what types of trophies you have, not how many 100% you have.

so, if a game has dlc's and i won't get them , can't get a S rank?

Please post in English. You can use a translate tool like Google Translate if you need to.

After its would be well to rank on all psn players and not on the psn profile site

 

Yes, that might be nice, but that would be a LOT of data that I doubt Sony would appreciate people pulling without permission.

 

And Sony doesn't even remove accounts that go from level 0 to 100+ instantly, so there would be no point in ranking everyone.

Making changes to website might give Sony other opinion. Like only allowing updating registrated members and that member can only manual request update for their own profile. As can be certain amouth of players even not know they are once by someone looked up at this site.

 

The other thing, yeah, Sony, they should remove, as thoose cheaters still can through community sites brag with cheated profile (don't know sites name but that site doesn care about cheaters, the site in question shows Xbox and Playstation info, but is not TA/TT)
