Name is anoynm's map, "Coffee cup and airplanes, is 4th on the map page at the moment, with a rating of 4.37, the same as Incamans Fall of the Crusades. Now, you may not hate this map, but I'm asking if you think it should really be shown as the 4th best map on warlight. I don't think so.

I've had enough now, I am 90% sure I know who is doing it, but alts are clearly rating the map 5 stars and their objective is to make it the highest rated map on warlight. Fizzer or someone please reveal who this is and if it is who I think it is, I've had enough of their constant antagonism of the community and will be calling for a permanent ban.

Just for reference, here are some maps that are lower rated: Imperium Romanum (https://www.warlight.net/Map/1173-Imperium-Romanum), A Tale of Four Cities (https://www.warlight.net/Map/16045-Tale-Four-Cities), Modern Europe (https://www.warlight.net/Map/11077-Modern-Europe), and Ursa: Luna (https://www.warlight.net/Map/10273-UrsaLuna).

All these maps are incredible, and all required great work to complete. Should they really be lower?

Maybe you guys haven't really looked at the map. Coffee cup. Airplanes. I'm surprised it's not a perfect 5.0.

Edit: And it's a TO GO coffee cup with a STRAW.

It has now risen to the 3rd-highest ranked map on Warlight. Please don't let this happen.

If that annoys you so much, just go rate it down :P

Edit: Someone who knows how to access past web archives can probably look at the rating count/score's evolution. I don't think ratings were removed, but rather, inflated by alts.

Honestly If he's actually getting real people to rate it then I don't see too much of a problem. Only if he's creating alts and rating it himself.

My advice is that there should be a level limit to rate a map. I'd say put it at level 5.

imho, you all are taking this wayyyy too seriously. I totally agree that anonym and his alts should be stopped, but y'all are just aggravating the situation with posts like this. If you really want him gone, just ignore him. There's no reason for him to post troll-like things if nobody responds to him. Threads like this just fuel him to troll more, or if he's legit not trying to troll, gives him a reason to lash back; (and it's not even like you guys are winning this slugfest) you guys are really half of the reason this issue is still cancerous.

A level minimum to rate maps? That's not a bad idea...

Could use that for any kind of annoying alt behaviour quite effectively.

Totally agree. Fizzer will find this easy to implement (probably) as he done it with many things before. All we neeed now is a level everyone agrees is apropriate

Minimum level 50 to rate maps and 60 to comment YES!

Also, Anonym is suspended and ratings are back to 0. I wonder if he got banned for cheating the map rating kek

I totally agree, Map rating should be fair for the raters and for the map makers.

I believe a level requirement somewhere around the 30-45 range would be ideal.

Someone should uservoice!

I'm just confused as to how people can think that Level=Maturity.
the rating will fall eventually. Actually not a terrible map.

Platinum is not crazy. Level has nothing to do with maturity. Its to make the process of using alts to cheat things much harder, though it doesn't take that many games to level an alt to the 30s tbh. Forcing trolls and such to put significant time into their alts makes it so much easier to handle them - several hours to create alt < not much time to find and suspend :P

A level limit up to 30 is crazy. Simply rating or reviewing a map doesn't require much Warlight skill. And if you do wish to implement a level limit. Do it low.Level 5 seems good. Warlight should not punish people who are contributing to Warlight. People like Nathan for example.

Honestly I think it should be L56+. Until you've unlocked all the maps, you're not actually exposed enough to what's out there (which has a serious impact on how you rate things- restaurants, where variety is high, are often rated more harshly than barbershops, where you really just pick one and stick with it => low exposure means high ratings).

If you're a L5 and you've just played Medium Earth for the first time, you're probably not even aware of MME and can't really properly rate it without having a good context for what deserves a 1 and what deserves a 5. At that point you're likely just going to give it your anchor rating.

Simply rating or reviewing a map doesn't require much Warlight skill.


Last I checked, getting to L30 doesn't require much skill either. I mean, you're L55 and clearly didn't get there by having a lot of skill. :P

Instead of levels, though, we could go by games played (100+?) or days since joining (50+?). Those would avoid the negative consequences of a level restriction.

Look like an alt made solely for map rating.

knyte: Why don't make it (e.g.20) maps played simply? We know for sure that WL register wins on different maps already, there are achievements for that.

Why not a mix of them all? 15 days since account creation, at least 25 multiplayer games and level 10.

This way you can't grind up alts by spamming games against other alts (trust me, you level up insanely fast early on; with 3 accounts at level 15 or higher you can get 45k points in just about 2 minutes*.

You'd have to either schedule your alts to rating inflate or wait to be able to use them, too. And 25 games against yourself is awfully irritating/boring. So just grinding up with alts gets discouraging.

*you can use a 4-man round robin tourney to give 1 account 90k while also giving benefits to the others, whch is even worse and shouldn't take over 5 minutes, too.
