Scoreboard Improvement Note
This is just a short scoreboard improvement note to inform all power Risk players and website visitors, that we have made minor changes to the way how the scoring system works. If you are a GRUNT, then you must have played a turn in the last 45 days. If you are a Strategist or Commander, then you must have played a turn in the last 180 days.
You should win more games to be able to see a scoreboard improvement for your username. Raise your score and move up in our Scoreboard. Take the opportunity and the challenge to win more Risk game medals. Strive for Medals in games and community activities to be recognized as a Medal Leader. The scoring system should indicate the skill level of a player.
How do the points work?
Points are awarded and taken according to the following formula: (Defeated’s score/Winner’s score)*30.
So if you are a cadet (1225) and are defeated by a Major (3000) then it looks like, (1225/3000)*30 or 12. So 12 points is taken from you and given to the winner. If you defeat that major it’s reversed. (3000/1225)*30 = 73. So you would get 73 points from the Major. You get more points by defeating players higher ranked than yourself. In Standard or Assassin games, you get points from all players after you win. In Mercenary games, you get points only from those players that you eliminate.

Please note that Points are calculated using the player’s score when the game ends, not their score when the game starts. For scoreboard improvement, you need to win more battles.
That’s all. 🙂
P.S. On a similar note, we will start to keep track of players “highest score ever achieved”, but that feature won’t be implemented until the next update, sorry! 🙂
