It's... ugh. Ranking really shouldn't be based on number of wins alone. I wish the ranking system was a "trueskill" ranking system; IE, I get more rank up when I beat a higher ranked opponent, and less with a lower (and lose more to a lower and lose more to a lower). Basically, I want a ranking system where you are rewarded more for going 50-5 than going 100-150.

EDIT:

So, for example: If I play newb, a rank 0, as a rank 5, I get, say, 50 rank points on a win and lose 150 on a loss, and if I play as newb against rank 5, I get 150 rank points on a win and 50 on a loss. There are more detailed equations (that take into account how consistent you are with winning and losing) but that's the basic idea.

Yes, I am awesome at dinowaurs, yes, I beat the Intuition staff at their own game on a laggy computer, yes, I have more forum posts than you at Kongregate, yes, I semi-personally know the developers after an interview, yes, I will overtake you in posts soon, but you are still worthwhile. I guess. Tongue

It is already, ranking is based on rating(which is ELO) not total wins. The devs can read your mind!

I meant the rank that shows beside your name. Having it just based on wins is stupid.
