Top 10 exemption removed, it seems (in General)
December 21 2006 4:04 AM EST
Just got this for the first time:
Challenge bonus -17% (why is this negative?)
Seems those of you who wanted it, got it.

After all of 4-5 minutes, the negatives are now gone.
Likely it was a bug, or a portent of things to come.

Being #11 is the worst place you can possibly be ;)
Anyway, is this top10 by score, PR, MPR, something else?
Why have a hard threshold at the #10? The choice of opponents for #11 is not that much different than for #10 to make a special case with such a huge difference.
"Seems those of you who wanted it, got it."
I can live in hope Ranger! ;)

aww I missed the second post...wonder if it got extended to the top 20 instead...
"Why have a hard threshold at the #10?"
It was put in back in May of 2005 (or close to it). Back then, the top score was less than a million, and there were very few "contenders" for the top spots.
NS, it's been in around since CB1. ;)
I was referring (perhaps incorrectly) to this changelog entry for May 2005:

If anyone mentioned it in May 05, it should have been in a historical context. The "magic 10" has been around for much longer than that.
"Anyway, is this top10 by score, PR, MPR, something else? "
Bartjan, I asked that question last year, and I got that response:

top 10 pr.
mpr would be silly to be counted, as fight rewards are based on the PR vs Score.
and score would also be silly for pretty much the same reason.

I can only dream...

I dropped myself to 11th and gave RaptorX and bartjan a little boost in doing so and now I see Challenge bonus -24% against Leodagraunce.
