Opponents list question (in General)

QBJohnnywas August 2 2007 7:51 AM EDT

It's nothing major but I thought I'd ask the question:

When I switch to standard on the opponents dropdown list the highest I can navigate to is the second place in the score standings (currently King of Pain). Why doesn't it show the number one standing? Or is it just me?

That's really weird....all morning I've been trying it out on and off, clicking 'higher' and no sign of Koy. Now straight after asking the question there he is.....

I'm going back to bed....:/

And...gone again.....

It's a bit strange....

Ok, the question should be changed to: Why when I navigate 'higher' (when the top of the opponents list is 2nd position in the game) does it take a number of clicks to make Koy appear on the listing? And the second question is: why then does he disappear from the listing and then reappear later? Is my opponents list wobbly or something today?

I think it is because it uses certain score brackets which with the difference between the 2 it takes a while to get there.

Ok, it takes seven clicks to move from King of Pain to Koy. Is it because the clicks 'higher' are actually moving up via a certain amount of score? And it's taking 7 clicks to move through the 'empty' score area between 2.6 million and 5.1 million?

That would make sense....

Koyaanisqatsi (5,123,221)
Edyit (2,599,286)
King of Pain (2,589,926)
NWO (2,575,855)
Oxcha (2,569,992)

Ranger Doubles 2nd place in score standings, basically what Zog said.

Yeah as you can see from my 8.01 post in between yours I think I worked it out at the same time...

Lol, it looks really confusing when you're clicking....

Yes, Nice spam by the way.

The same thing happened to me. Took a few clicks before Koy showed up on my list. Perhaps the reason could be the when "higher" is clicked it searches by score increments and having a big gap between Koy and King of Pains score it takes a few click before he shows up.

It's my thread! It was all on topic!

Took six clicks for me...but then again I also have a higher score ^_~
