Umbreon, make sure you copy this post except for this line and paste it into the first post.
It's time for me to go into deep detail about TRN247 and what exactly it entails.
When you sign up in the TRN24/7 forum for the games you'd like to play in, we'll issue you a ratings card, much like this one:
which you can use as a forum signature anywhere on the internet. These images will be hosted on a special FTP server, provided by GerbilSoft, which will automatically update
as your rating changes. Pretty neat, huh?
Everyone's rating will start at 1500. You will gain and lose points based on the skill level of your opponents -- eventually causing the metagame to sort the crowd into segregated ranks. The color of your rating number will indicate your "rank" and will change as you cross the thresholds for those ranks.
Racing individual levels or playing over Kaillera will be worth half
the normal point value. Low risk, low reward, but you can do a lot of these and very often.
Racing full games (marathons), regardless of the type of marathon, will be worth normal point value.
Any TSC Race Night feature will be worth double point value, so be especially sure you participate every saturday!
To ease the process of integrating this system, we will add ratings cards for each game as we feature them at TSC Race Night. That means for now, we'll only be featuring S3K. On the Next TSC Race Night, I'll unlock that game's ratings card.
