    Hey guys, Ultra_Deadly here and I am writing this thread to discuss Tower Defence and the possibility of an ELO system

    I really love this game, by far one of my favourite's on this server, I love the strategy and teamwork behind it, but with such a strategic game means beginning players can hinder the experience for more experienced and advanced players.
    Some of my personal experiences with beginners include:
    -
    Spamming one single tower (Most notably Mage and Artillery)
    - Placing towers so they take up space for another tower (For example a beginner places a tower in the middle of a 6x6 plot)
    - Not reading the chat (In a game of teamwork this is a crucial flaw)
    I believe an ELO system would help matchup more experienced players with each other and also bring more experienced players who may have been put off it, beginning players can soon learn from a lobby with more experienced players. At the higher end of the ranking system will be lobbies of experienced, advanced players, meaning more strategies and meaning more fun! I have discussed this with some other intermediate / experienced players in the game and they agree with the idea of an ELO system

    Thanks for reading my thread! Have a great day! ;)

    i am not sure. It would be kinda bad to do that simply because then beginners will never learn how the game works.

    I see your point there, to be honest, apart from a tutorial that is not even mandatory to watch, there is no real direction to what your doing, they might learn if their team carries them to a high rank but otherwise, not really, maybe they could have the tutorial play on default and have the option to turn it off, occasional tips for those who read the chat could help as well, thank you very much for pointing this out.

    I believe an elo system would be a significant addition to Tower Defense. I believe this way because many starters are being placed with advanced and experienced players. This is annoying for both the players. Adding an elo system would fix this problem. Players will be able to play with other players that are at equivalent skill-level. Amazing idea!

    I believe this system would be a good addition.Its more balanced,for both teams because usually I'm always taking blue.Sadly theres at least 1 newbie that is joining that team too-and of course building 4 mages in a row :/ In summary I would really love this system to be developed

    Actually it's against the rules. The request is not denied. That was not mini-modding, just a person helping.
    Now how can YOU say that anyways? YOU aren't staff!
