Re: Conference of the Monarch (Thoughts)
Excellent point. Furthermore, many players are familiar with the concept of "leveling up". When I first started, I was pumped when my bilge went up to "neophyte". I had no clue what it meant of course, but it still felt like I did something. My point is that having 50% of players at the bottom makes no sense in terms of retaining new players. Why not have the first few standings be rather easy to obtain? Yes it would be trivial progress, but newer players would feel a sense that progressing is possible. It would also be helpful to see who is trying, and who is truly hopeless at a puzzle. I mean currently a high able can actually perform pretty well, but they are lumped in with the lazers and boochers.
Basically I am saying the bottom few standings could mirror the top few in terms of percentages. 1% could be able, which everyone starts at. Then a 4% group, then the next 5%, etc. Distinguished would still mean breaking into the top 50%, so nothing would change except that the range of able would be broken up and given different words.
