    The flipside to that argument is that a player who survives longer can spend more time building his stack of weapons, items and armor, which aids greatly in gaining kills/points, which earns the win...

    I've experienced this and wonder about it as well. Sirax has told me that the only factor in the FFA ranking system is placement, not necessarily wins/losses. For instance, if you are a low ranked...

    I dunno fatal1ty doesn't seem very active compared to some of the other best FFA players. I've beaten him a few times in pub FFAs, but I'm not sure I've ever beaten Tyryl, only come close.

    Complaint against you has been dismissed.

    If I see this message in game, I'm guessing it's QL telling me that someone filed some sort of complaint against me, and that it was tossed out. What exactly is the protocol for filing a complaint...
