Replay gets boring with no Hall Of Fame or High Score Table
I was hoping this would have been put in. Iv'e seen this asked for alot but I don't think Stardock wants to go with it,
The replay vaule really suffer, I only play when new content is introduced as I have nothing to measure my progress & former games against.

For me it's interesting to play it more often.
1. due to fact that Kingdom and Empire can recruite different heroes,
2. due to the different classes and other abilities.
3. due to the different worlds and monsters.
4. due to the different ways to win the party, etc etc :^)

I agree the game experience is differant every time you play, just leaves you flat when the game is over, with the game being so epic you want some type of referance.

This is one of the games with the highest replay fun! I cant understand you... really..

Its an idea that harkens back to the "good old days" of pc gaming, when a high score screen was pretty common. It would be a nice touch for those who appreciate the old-school. The game is great, but even a great thing can be further improved.

I actually agree with OP on this one. It's nice to have a Hall of Fame in games like these. Sort of brings back memories and stores assosiated to each one.

Master of Magic, which this series originally originated from, had a highscore list which enhanced the fun.

I think that Hall of Fame can't improve game experience (that is good as it is), but it's an interesting idea to stimulate to play another time the game.

Personally, I don't care for a hall of fame or a ranking system but I would also not care if it existed so I wouldn't begrude it being there.

However, I am curious, how would you score it?

What would you give points for?

If I won a game with a single city does that mean I did worse or better than if I won with twenty cities?

I'd love to know your thoughts.

The high score comes from video arcade games where you competed against other players on the same machine like Galaga or Asteroids. One of the goals was to try to beat eveyrone else and get that top slot.

But in complex games, I do think scoring is the issue - how would you score it? A point for every enemy killed?

I fail to see how score matters at all in games like this, especially in regards to replay value - but whatever floats your boat.

The game already has a end game score/rank system where it compares your efforts to one of the games story characters.

If that information could be saved & ranked that would be fine.

The Civilization series has done a wonduful job with turn-based end game results

If it's really this important to you I suggest you keep your own scoreboard by pen & paper. I too would like a Hall of Fame but this is a bit excessive.

Oh right! I never look at that. :)

My bad.

Well, there you go, I suppose if you wanted to you could start a forum thread and post your gametype and score. Maybe a screenshot or two. Then see if anyone else beats you for it.

Ooor, start a thread with a game type, conditions, factions in the game, difficulty level then challege others to play with the same settings then post a score after a week?

I know, low tech and not automated but if there is interest I imagine some people respond at which point you could bring the case forward.

nirth,

I believe what you just described was being done a while back, not sure if it was here or on the stardock forums though.
