Don't Stave Global Rankings!
I was thinking, some of you guys love playing for rewards that everyone can see. In Don't Starve even though we are achieving things in game others are not able to see our progress. To some this is a very big deal and a huge turn off. I for one prefer to play games casually but anything that is non virtual related, I participate in, I am one of the most competitive people you will come across, saying that I was ranking 1st in almost every match I played in Blacklight Retribution a free to play FPS. Look at my screen shots for some proof. Anyway back on topic.
So I thought wouldn't it be a good idea to have a Global Leader Board. Basically each person will be ranked on how many days they survive with a certain character. So there will be tabs for each playable character that you can click on to see who has survived the most number of days.This will give those achievement hunters to aim for that no.1 spot and maintain it.
Think of this as a new mode added through DLC that is basically a harder Adventure/Sandbox mode where instead of rewarding us with playable characters (Wes and Maxwell) we are able to see where our fellow survivors are on a global ranking system, and try to get to that no.1 spot. You could argue that this is still playing for an achievement. But in essence we play Adventure mode for two main reasons, to unlock more playable characters and for that extra challenge. Which are both an achievement for completing. This new mode is the same but obviously much harder and will allow people all over the world to see who has survived the longest.
Obviously I know people use mods. So on the leader board it will flag them as red and we can see the mods these people have installed. It's a rough idea but I think this is one solution to those asking for things the devs don't want in their game. Please read all comments. I know exactly what I want for this but this is a community forum I would like to hear what you guys think and from that I
Please share your thoughts. Any comment that I feel will turn this thread into another of those achievement wanting threads will be immediately deleted. Repeated offenders will be dealt with accordingly for sole purpose of derailing a thread and unnecessary spam.
