    Skill rating system in ctf D:

    Hi!
    I really hate it how skill rating is calculated off points/per unit of time, especially in ctf.
    I play the role of a mid-fielder, and the nature of that role is usually very low-scoring. I play in tier 4 games as mid-fielder, but I am tier 2 because of the abysmal score. Check out this match: http://www.quakelive.com/r/profile/s...9031fd90/ctf/1. I was known as 'Jdt' back when that game was played. That was a tier 4 game. Yet I am tier 2. SERIOUSLY?!

    Give it a few matches. The ratings will catch up.

    When I created this profile, I was tier 3. Since then, my skillrating has been dropping and dropping, and I have lost faith in this D:.

    Yes, it sucks.
    Skillrating can't correctly detect even games where everyone plays well.

    Like...your team's flag carrier can die at base, and some noob can pick it up and cap it for 100 points...

    for that to happen it would need to apply map-knowledge skills as well, and that's not gonna happen.

    There are probably so few people playing CTF now that iD needs to channel some to the lower ranks just to have viable servers. Take one for the team Jolteon!

    if you want to win on pub ctf you should either attack or defend, not mid. Can do much more if items are yours.

    Well said Doc. I was going to make the point that CTF isn't FFA with Flags (which is often how it's played in NA). Having the most frags doesn't win the game. I suck at CTF and tend to play the same way. I may work in some good Ds or even a flag run at some point, but fall back to just chasing enemies. The result? Highest score on the losing team (e.g. from yesterday: http://www.quakelive.com/#!profile/m...9031fd90/ctf/1). Eventually I may lrn 2 ctf, until then, I apologize to those who get shuffled on my team.

    There's way more to CTF than controlling mid for your team to win, and the scoring system reflects that. Just 1 point per frag, but may more for D and killing EFC.

    I didn't check the match that you listed, but someone earlier mentioned that you played a TDM-like gamestyle. This is all well and good in CTF...ONLY if you're doing more than just camping mid and killing people. If your offense is pushing in and needs help you should leave mid and go escort for the FC. This will benefit the team more than waiting at mid and killing enemies. The same applies for defending the FC or assisting your defense. I myself tend to play a heavy TDM-like CTF game in pubs and often times do the most damage in the game while still playing objectively. (Feel free to check my CTF match history to confirm this)
