It should be in the "help" for your lobby client, depending on your choice of client it's in a different place so if you can't find it please specify the lobby client you are using so we can better answer your question.

no newb its definitely 40hrs for 4bar, unless theyve changed it recently which i cant imagine has been done, as there seems to be a mutual agreement that the ranking system is shit but nobody cares enough to change it!

According to TASClient, it's 30 hours, and I remember it being 30 hours over 3 years ago now.

FYI Springie-based autohosts and zklobby user hosted games ignore server ranks and balance people based on Elo rating (win/loss ratio).

why ignore me? i'm cool! :mrgreen:

But why more ranks? And why ranks are used by SPADS (which is mostly used) to balance and not an ELO score like springie does?

coz making silver star is too easy and gold star lasts eternity. spring got too many noob gold stars (not to mention terrible vets)

i personally find elo quite terrible for bigger games

5, 15, 30, 75, 150, 300, 700, 1500, 3000, 6000, 10000/12000 - would be better i think (more or less)

I didn't get why elo doesn't work with bigger games.
In fact, I don't think time played/spec is a good way to balance teams.

I am using springie sometimes and the elo rating works better in my opinion.

Not sure if elo ratings based on 10v10 games can be accurate. 1v1 for sure, 2v2 probably, 3v3 probably, 4v4 meh, but 10v10? c'mon..you can win even if you sit and tech all game and don't make a single unit. :D

And the server's time-played ranks is better for this?
