Rules and Ranking System Modifications 2019

Post by Bean » Mon Feb 04, 2019 6:36 pm

Rules are here: http://sillysoft.net/lux/rules.php
Rankings are here: https://sillysoft.net/lux/rankings

Background:

In Winter 2019, we implemented several important changes to the ranking system as well as the rules. Notably, the weekly chase was moved to specific curated rooms with rotating maps/scenarios and other popular maps like Bio Deux, Classic, and Roman maps became ranked independently on a monthly basis. Rules were updated to clarify and simplify as well as to call out specific things that are not against the rules. Hopefully the rules are more clear and there can be less "inventing" of non existent rules by players.

More details:

1. Only specific rooms count toward the Weekly Chase. They are labeled "Weekly Chase" in the Network Games tracker. No other rooms count toward the Weekly Chase.

2. Bio Deux, Classic, and Roman maps are only ranked monthly now and do not count in the weekly rank. If, on occasion, one of these monthlies is chosen as the weekly map, then it WOULD count that week.

3. PREVIEW rooms are for previews and requests. Games therein do not count toward any of the ranking ladders.

4. Private host games do not count unless the private host offers some scheme of their own. Alternative ranking systems like H0b0s LuxKillz will still work.

Requests are welcomed for future themes or weekly maps.
