I'm working on a player leaderboard ranking system.

I'd like some feedback about the in-game stats display layout so far.

This is text I just typed into the rprint lines, for testing:

If you don't like it, give me some idea of what it should look like instead. This I think is the simplest layout. I can only use 4 columns or 80 chars per line, 22 lines total.

Top 20 stats showing:


No stats showing (too cluttered?):

I have a web site for displaying stats. It's https://ladder.galaxyverge.com. What other web site do you mean?

i dont remember the name, and you dont have to constantly plug your site. There's a site that's been doing Halo PC/CE leaderboards for years now, back since Xfire was in its hayday. Im sure somebody else with better memory will say what it is

If you can't remember it, and I can't find it, then why tout it as an alternative?

He could mean GameTracker. However, GameTracker isn't precise as it relies on querying the server (I assume once every 1 to 2 minutes).

If he does not mean this, then I assume he means Halo Status by btcc22. However, this is not a leaderboard and only shows server info at the time of the queries.

Do you mean HaloRank.com? If so, that's long dead. It only supported servers that used Ganadur.

My database system displays stats dynamically. It records a lot more stats than are sent to master server lobbies. You'll see what I mean when it's done. No point spoiling whatever remaining surprise there is.

Well this should be good. It's gonna be nice to see how well you measure up to the halo community, I'm assuming your going to include some interface on the website that allows you to search player names and display a win/loss ratio and total kills?

Ranks are not defined. Ranks depend upon the statistic by which you sort the entries. For example, the player who has the most kills might also be last place in terms of how much damage they received.
