Reply with Quote

My puzzle standing in Gunnery is flipping as hell.

I got 9 excellent and not even up from dis.
When i play for 2 hours i`m REN, when i make a little mistake i get a downgrade, to go up again i need to do allot, it is not normal anymore.

And then like this:



When i put 2 very fast in, i go down, when i put 1 in very slow i get up.

:S

If you fill the guns slowly, your ranking will drop. If you fill them quickly, your ranking will rise.

Pretty simple :)

It may be pretty simple, but it is clearly wrong, as the OP pointed out.

OP: I suggest reading the yppedia article on Standing. It explains why, on rare occasions, your standing can drop even when you do well, and can go up, even when you do poorly.

In my experience, depending on whether you get high Excellents or low Excellents, getting nothing but pure Excellents will result in a standing anywhere from Master to Legendary. Gunning has a real rough scoring curve around there. Being on average, just a tiny amount faster can make a big difference. Also, it is vastly easier to get a really slow gunning board than one that you load so quickly that it can offset the slow board. Work on never doing badly, rather than always doing Incredible.
