That's not the reason, Rick. Way back when the charts were being added, it was generally agreed upon that rings weren't a good idea because you eventually have a maximum amount of rings that you could get. Nobody knew if the maximum was a random number or not, and nobody was willing to get to level 99 on multiple files to find out. That being said, if it IS a random number maximum for ring counts, then whoever has the highest maximum ring count would be able to get the record on levels in which the ring count would more than likely max out. If it's not a random number... then I don't see why they shouldn't go up either. Just for a reference, my maximum is 350.
