For several days I have been playing IGN: paul1138. Several times this morning the opponent quit matches. My ranking went from #33 to #3093 despite a 10 game winning streak. Mechzilla

This is a known bug in the ranking system (that ranks will occasionally change to a very different number).
Your rank will eventually go back to normal.

At this point I am wondering why the programmers/moderators tend to overlook the questions about ranking. The new resistance modules were a nice touch but the ranking system has been a problem since the beginning & has not been addressed despite numerous inquiries.

On another note, thank you for removing the tokens feature. It kept me playing & I have told several friends about the game.

The ranking bugs have been reported a gazillion times, they are certainly not overlooked.

Consider this, you have two bugs in the game:
1.The first one makes the entire game crash for everybody
2.The second is ranking problems.

Your developer has 10h available in which he can either solve 1) or 2)
Which one would you like to have solved first?

My point is the ranking touble is a bug yes, but it "repairs" itself and is not permanent.
It may be annoying but does not even affect the battle experience.

And as long as there are bugs which affect the battle experience or other important aspects of the game the ranking problem will have to wait.

Supermechs is not a main game title were 10 developers all work in parallel.

Please have patience :)
Everyone of the developers is doing everything in his or her power to make Supermechs a better game.

Thank you for taking the time to explain, Antares102. Your time is appreciated.

Could you tell us how ranking is calculated? IE - What are the specific parameters for ranking increase/decrease? Is ranking ever manually tweaked by programmers?

From what I know ranking is calculated every few minutes, so it is not immediatelly updated after you win/lose a fight.

This is also the reason why sometimes the ranking is *CENSORED* up and then gets restored right afterwards.

Aside from that I am afraid, I dont exactly know on what basis the
ranking is calculated.

But probably we can find somebody who does.

Thank you. It would help to know how ranking is calculated for those of us who care.

Apparently, your ranking seems like it is bugged if you don't fight a multiplayer battle for at least 20-30 minutes, i still don't know what causes this tho :)
