Default HoF of HoF's

Often it is very clear who are the best ones in the different Halls of Fame. You know, who will ever be able to beat Quilp the Round in Hall of Heroes (unless he goes out for lunch and falls asleep again ofcourse, or forgets to put his clothes back on). Who will ever be able to beat the NaughtyFrog and his scummy ways in Hall of Fortressess and who can ever expect to beat the Scumkitty, the first Cryptozoologist there ever was, in Hall of Pets.

(yes, yes Server 1 US is the centre of the Shakes and Fidget Universe, all the other servers are just mirages and feeble dreams).

But as an average player who does well in every ranking but will never reach the top anywhere… yes I am talking about YOU (or was it me… I forgot…), what is there to show how well you are doing compared to all those others…?

What IF there was a Hall of Fame giving an overall ranking over ALL the HoF's? And who would be the best overall player on the server? Well, we are going to find out.

For every personal HoF you have a ranking. Add those rankings together and you have your Hall of Fame of the Halls of Fame points. The lower the number, the higher you will be on the list. Easy enough, no?

This is a lot of work (no really, a LOT OF WORK, and we Scum, we hate work…). So there are some rules (we Scum hate rules, but we hate work even more. So… yeah… rules) on who can join the HoF of HoF’s

How to become part of the HoF of HoF's:
  1. Be in top 30 of HoF Heroes, HoF Fortress or HoF Pets, or
  2. Be a member of the Severed Tongue, or
  3. Bribe the Scumlord (that would be me)

I will only list the players that fall under 1 of these 3 very easy to follow rules. Basically, if you don’t fit under one of these 3 rules, you will not be on this list, even though you might overall have less points than some of the players on this list. You can whine about it all you want, but let’s face it... I'm lazy and never listen anyway. Work Harder and above all Smarter, and next time you too might be in the Hall of Fame of the Halls of Fame.

So I made 6 HoF of HoF’s so far: (one example of the top 25 of this month below, go check the links for the full overview of the rankings, and maybe you even get a smile out of the comments).

January 2017: http://scumbase.blogspot.nl/2017/01/...s-of-fame.html

As you can see, it quickly changed from once a month, to once every 3 months. Because… yeah… it REALLY is a lot of work.

So why post this here? Well, for ME this is a lot of work, because I need to do it by hand, find the players, type in their rankings, add them up, make a list, post about it… soooo much work…. But our Shakes and Fidget friends, can just pull out the numbers from the server by writing a query and not just once a month (or whenever I feel up to it), but all the time instantly. You can even get rid Rule 1 and Rule 2 (I would prefer if Rule 3 would stay in place).

So, my suggestion: I want a HoF of HoF’s in Shakes and Fidget. How about you?

Grtz.

So this is for servers individually?
Not a Global HoF?

Servers individtually yes. There is not much point to compare servers in my opinion, seeing they don't all play by the same rules and certainly are not created at the same time.

Servers are on different hardware. Data would have to be forwarded somewhere else to calculate a new global hall of fame. Wouldn't make that much sense though because of servers' age differences.

He was specifically calling this out individually, not globally, look at his response to my question.

I kinda like a global HOF for at least player lvl and honor maybe even have a global arena. yeah may have to do something on a separate server to do so but it would be an update that I could actually stand behind for a change.

Hello leander, please read my suggestion again. I am suggesting a HoF of HoF's (a combined ranking of all the Halls of Fame that are on ONE server). I even included how it could look like.

I am NOT suggesting a HoF of servers. I even stated the exact same reasons why that would be pointsless as you did, in my reply directly above yours.

Ah, ok. Yes, I like this suggestion and will forward it to the devs to see what they'll say.

Without the HoF Fortress this suggestion would be really nice.
But since you get 1 honor for a won fight no matter who you attack and you don't lose honor for a lost fight, that HoF is useless and shouldn't be used in a HoF of HoF's in my opinion.

Yes, you can't lose honor in Forterss HoF, but why is that a problem? It is clear that the top Forterss HoF players have put in a lot more time than the players that are lower in ranking. We all started playing fortess at the same time.

Personally i have more problems with Pet HoF, where you have no control over who you attack at all. you can't even skip someone because then you can't fight the battles that are locked after current battle. And the RNG is so insane that you can still easily lose if you have 2 pets more at full strength while figthing the same element.
