Good one. Try, and fail, to insult the person rather than debating the merits or otherwise of recordings.
Don't forget how many people you insult when you say that their scores are crap and cheap just because they are not as super-dooper you want.
Yes games do rarely have different scoring systems, but that is the exception and not the rule and I just chose this game as the most recent example of what has frequently been done by both yourself and saulonpb on numerous games. Play the clone with no scores rather than the ones on which people have played lots of recordings. If you wanted to truly challenge yourself. you would play the games that already have large scores, but you simply want to grub easy leaderboard points by playing the clones which have no recordings currently.
Anyone can play any game or clone he wishes. And its better for a clone to be played instead of remain unplayed and forgotten.
What do you suggest, to abolish the clones? Only one inp per title, as the broken RU site does?
That's precisely my point. First place changes so many times you clearly uploaded recordings early rather than putting true time and effort into the game before uploading your score. Again, the only reason for submitting early rather than waiting until you have put more effort into the game would be for leaderboard points grubbing.
When you are in a competition, each time you try harder to increase your score and be first again. Therefore it's not a "cheap first place", it's an expensive one.
If they uploaded those scores after several days of effort on that one game, then no it's not a cheap score.
Glad to see we now agree.
.....My precise point is with the volume of recordings that someone uploads that fall into this category then they become cheap scores that aren't being submitted because the user has put a lot of time and effort into those scores, but rather are because that person is simply points grubbing leaderboard points on games that have minimal or no sumbissions prior to that point.
How do you know that this happens? How do you know if there is a lot or less time and effort?
Apparently you are wrong.
I'm more than happy to respect hard work, but if you put up 10+ scores in a day across numerous games, then there is no way you put hard work into all of those recordings.
Not all players have the same abilities. Someone needs 1 week to make a score, someone else needs 3 hours to do the same score.
Now, when you see 10 scores in a day doesn't necessarily means that they were created that same day.
My bleat? I've put up 404 posts over 12 years, well it will be 405 when I click submit to this post. That's an average of 33 posts a year and you think Marp members are sick and tired of my bleat?
I was talking about the bleat of you and giro-X in the subject we're now discussing.
If you think you talk wisely then make a poll and ask if members agree with you(upload only super-dooper scores)...
