I know that's why the stars are there but it's still kind of lame how people who exploit the game can be on top.

It's been a while, but I have finally implemented that feature. For anyone who checks the leaderboards frequently, you probably will have noticed the change by now.

Now, I want to get back into a serious movement toward revising the character score system. I have gotten some examples ready in the "testing ground" for The Elder Stats, and now I am prepared to start formulating a final idea for the revision of the character score system.

I know that a lot of ideas have been posted in this topic so far, so I am going to need to look through all of them and see which ones fit best. Basically, we want to go with some sort of formula - either an average of the stats included which will equal a character's score, or some other equation that can be used to generate a score for a character.

For reference, information about how the score is currently calculated can be found here.So, if everyone could please look through some of the ideas posted in this topic, or post your own personal ideas, and let us know which ideas you feel are best for revising the character score system. Please keep in mind, though, that the stats that will be included in the formula to generate character score need to be able to be used in a simple formula (i.e. nothing other than addition, subtraction, multiplication, or division of stats can be used in calculating the score). Also, I think it is quite obvious that the stats included in the calculation for character score

must be numerical.

We appreciate everyone's suggestions, and I hope to see as many people post their suggestions as possible. Please let us know what stats you think should be included in calculating the Score for characters. We really need to revise the current system as it is based on stats that are not truly fair to be used. We want the character score to include certain stats so that every character's score will be different, and every character's score will express the true quality of the character.
