Sorry guys, I’ve been away a bit, had a vacation a week back and then had things to get done and well, then there are three children and a stressed wife. GOsh I miss playing more often.
I’d say that the stats race should be more interesting if, say, the stats would be reset at either 6 mo. or when a player reaches 5,000 kills, whichever comes first. That way there is a race against time or the other player, or both!! The current 9-1/2 months is too long. 😉
More details (as time allows) would be appreciated.
The only problem I can envision without giving this more thought is the condition that occurs if an update should become ready for release, shortly after a mandatory reset.
This condition presents a variety of choices :
Delay the release
Reset the stats
Rename the stats
Declare the stats invalid
And perhaps others as well.
I am not sure but to me there really is no need for a manditory reset of the stats with a new version. So long as the MySQL or whatever is not changed around the new game version should be able to simply continue adding stats, shouldn’t it?
I mean, the versions dont’ change things so much that a kill isn’t a kill do they? THis way the resets could always be on time.
