    So how many % of the players that play ranked will become uber? It can't be a too high % or else it won't feel special (gotta work for that rank). Just around my skill level and above would be fine for example :p

    So if someone were to export all the PA Stats Ladder maps and send you the files, would you consider using them for the ladder instead of these maps?

    I'll have some of the genesis people check them out. I guess I need to go fix system sharing.

    It would also be good if there was an obvious sound when you got matchmaked with someone and need to confirm it. not all of us have 2 screens ^^

    noob! ;)
    Though I think there is such a sound, at least from the code I read:

    Maybe it is too quiet or bugged?

    5 ranks, makes since to just go 20% of players per level right?

    I have heard it. It isn't very obvious but we could mod in my favorite auto-matching alert sound. :D

    No, games tend to use a bell curve approach I think.

    so what happens when I loose connection to the game because the server crashed because there were 4 starting planets and I made over 4000 units? Does that count as a loss? if so that's dumb, because it crashed right as I was about to win... >.<

    Can we get larger 1v1 maps, plz? The current ones are too small.

    Even 600 feels small.

    I'm pretty sure the server reports the win / loss at the end, so if it crashes I don't think anything gets reported.

    If people find easy to reproduce server crashes, that means they're crashing our servers, which means we have the crash reports, which means they can get fixed easily!

    Noticed earlier that the last person to ready up didn't have their (SELECTED) tag turn to (READY) before the game began. Might be an isolated incident, since I don't usually glance at that screen.
