Im not sure about everyone els ebut i hope the add a decent raeting system on RTW like on STW MI or i belive the game gets boring. you could play a competive game or friendly on MI which was fun mtw gets a bit boring with no rateing well go vote http://www.totalwar.org/forum/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif

Indeed. A rating system for MP with all your stats, kills, losses, battle history would be very nice. http://www.totalwar.org/forum/non-cgi/emoticons/wave.gif

Yes stats would be nice..rating like in STW/MI no thx.

I agree with CBR. Stats are fine with me, and would be kind of fun to see, but more people are going to want to be in competitive games than I, and that will just cut down the amount of available games to join if you're looking for a specific type-friendly or competitive.

stats would be nice if they found some nice way to sum them up .. pretty hard though

I'm for a stat system, but against a ranking system. I didnt play Shogun as long as some others, but the ranking system make some people do weird thing.
If people want a ranking, they could create a ladder, like there is in some others games. You register and commpete vs others register members.

hmm not looking good for my vote i agree people did go weird but mtw is a bit boring without a rankng, stats system non stop friendly games get boring arfter a while.

There should be a rating system ONLY IF dropouts are counted as losses. Also, it should be a bit like the chess system in that it should count for more if you beat someone better than you vs. beating a noob (like me http://www.totalwar.org/forum/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif ) Also, only wins and losses should count. No kills, captures, or other crap like that.

Well this sounds good, except that a lot of older players would then refuse to play with newer players. This is not what we want. In theory, the best situation happens when the more knowledgable players teach the newer players, so we have many more MP people around to play with/against. If you make things competitive, or even change the ranking so more established players get less from playing newer players, then you'll get a foyer less willing to play new players/or train them. And also it will promote many more players to go undercover, and gain wins because of ignorance. Also not fun. I must say that recently I have been in many games with new players. I almost always find myself on the weak side by myself, with the newbie in the middle, thus isolating me basically from the rest of my allies. Well when this new player gets rushed and routed, and my army is vulnerable, and can only take on at THE MOST one and a half armies (sometimes not even a half army) then I am kind of in a pickle. In this situation, if it were competitive, then I wouldn't even think about playing the game. Thus, cutting down on the fun.

why dont CA just add a program in VI that counts ur mp kills to deaths and saves it on ur computer without them having to setup a stats server?
