I have been playing on another (inferior) site which i won't mention. They have a really good awards scheme running which is connected to their ratings table.
There are two main awards;
-Highest player award (every player reaching the top of the ratings chart has gets award )
-Bravery award (every player that starts 10 matches at once and wins them all gets this)
I think these kind of awards give players insentives to do well. Off the top of my head i can think of a couple more that would be quite fun.
-Longest winning streak (this would be an award that is passed around, it would also highlight most of the computer cheats on the site)
-Most active award (speaks for itself)
Does anyone think, like me, that this would be most cool?? Any ideas for different awards??
Developers- What say u??
