They have to be on BT-2. It's a training server, and the checkpoints are the best method to train (beside the teles)

I think found a bug between CP and the Rankings. The rankings seems to count a CP run as a "normal" run, so you get points for it.

If I count up all scores of the maps I capped last week, I get to 52 points:

-1 4 = 16
-2 3 = 18
-4 2 = 16
-2 1 = 2

In the rankings it say I have 116 pints, so this means I capped a 116-52=64 = rating 8. I indeed capped a rating 8 (legofortress) WITH CP.

I don't think this is the way it should be...

One big positive for having CP caps count, is if it's a really hard map no-one can cap, it's well into overtime, server is quite full (i.e mid-map voting won't activate easily) thereby a CP cap would finish it, so a map-change can be made.

Which annoys everyone who was trying to cap normally.

isnt that why map voting was made? so people can VOTE without having to change a map they enjoy playing?

Roel i don't think the rankings ever work as you expect, I have added up what i think my points should be before, and i have ended up with more or less points in rankings. This was before CP was introduced too.

AFAIK the rankings were correct lately. It indeed used to be wrong, bit it was fixed a couple of months ago. It is also a bit weird that exactly 64 points = rating 8 are added, while I cappped one with cp in that week...

Well maybe I just don't understand how the points are accumulated for the rankings. If it is the case that they count when capped with cp, it seems a little silly.

Tbh the BT rankings mean shit all anyway, sure it's better than nothing but hardly a barometer of skill. And for rushers it means nothing, as it's totally based on caps not captime. Not dissing your point though Roel, but I remember CN saying BT is about/involves luck. So it's quite fitting that the ranking has decided to reflect this too. Unpredictability, it's such fun lol.

Maybe one day there'll be an accurate statfest with various ranked BT parameters.Pray

So true Scrop, works both ways ofc. Eh Mike, you and your implausible points Surprised

I'll start playing again when there's a statfest tbh. I love statfests.

And Dan, one thing that's really bugging me - your/you're. Big difference. You're = you are. But you know this. xxx

Why isnt CP in the Bunny Track Training server? It is a help tool isnt it?

How about moving CP to the BT Training Server and cut it out Bunnytrack1.

Not necesarly the spam. I just think its more fitted for a training server then the professional BT servers. I mean, !cp is used to get to know a map.

And I almost always check out a map on BT Training before im gonna play it on a professional server.
