⭐The Rescoring Contributor Community Event is active. (14 July — 28 July) Details are in the second post of this thread.


We want your help!

Our goal is to get a baseline of how popular sets and important sets from various genres should be scored. We are doing this by asking many players to share how they feel a set should be scored, averaging the results. We will only do this for a short time and we need community involvement.

The more who contribute, the better the results.
You will be credited and it will have a big impact!


How to do it
⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯⎯
1. Familiarize yourself with the new scoring system (see below the games list).
2. Open the rescoring link.
3. Find the link to the game in the Table of Contents for a set where you've completed ~50% or more on hardcore.
4. Find a new column, write what you think each achievement is worth using the new scoring tiers (0-5, 10, 25, 50)
5. When you are finished, hide your scores. (So you won't sway how others re-score the set)
- To hide your scoring, right click your column letter, for example column "B", and select "Hide Column".

You're done!

I don't know how to re-score MegaMan 2. Seriously. The point distribution for it is already good enough.

Rather than looking at the set as a whole, look at each achievement and match it up with the nearest score level.

I mean, they are balanced, each one. There is no achievement worth more than 10 points in this set, really.

You could then, perhaps, re-score it by that estimation, and give it the score it already has or close to it.

Although I didn't try these sets in RA yet I would like to contribute. I played some of these games in the past a lot, and know enough about the different aspects of them. At least is a little something I can do in return for all the fun this site has gave to me.

You should reset all scores on the ranking, everyone with zero points, from the beginner with this new sets!

I was under the impression that devs would get to re-score their own sets eventually (referring to Paper Mario).

Are you admin?

Should I be? Why the hell should I lose all the points and achievements I gained in 2 years? Just because of new point system?

It's just a suggestion man, no need this arrogance. But ok.

Meh. I don't agree on what said. I would lose all the achievements I earned with pure dedication. It would be a complete waste of the time I spent on these games.
