This information should be familiar to those who played Planetary Wars:
for every game you directly win, you get: +1 point
every level you lose for the first time: -0.5 points
every level you win in a rematch gives you +1 point so that the final score for that level is: +0.5 points
What i did not tell you, is that every game you play only lasts for 30 days. So after a match is older than 30 days, you may have more points (if you lost most of the games) or you will have less points if you played really strong. This is done for two reasons:
New players most likely will not win that often during their first games but will become stronger over time.
A player that played more than 3 months would be nearly unreachable for a player that played only 2 weeks.
I hope you understand why i choose this system, but please let me know what you think and how i could enhance Planetary Wars.
As i read in the Android Market comments earlier, there seemed to be a bug with the highscore in Planetary Wars. It was hard to believe as i saw a lot of incoming games in the database. So first i ignored the problem. Yesterday Bash wrote a comment on this site mentioning the problem occurred after he played around 300 games.
Having some spare time today i investigated the problem and first added a better logging system to the server side of the highscore. Just a minute after pushing it live, there showed up to be a problem with the level number that you players submitted: they were not in the format i expected them. Looking at my filters i had to find out that the level maximum was as low as 255. I can only guess the reason i wrote this rule but now it is removed and your games are reported again.
I am really sorry that you lost the score for your games but i can not recover them.
Planetary Wars is now also available at AndroidPit
This is mostly relevant for people from countrys without access to the official Android Market. Notice:
It is the same version as in the official Market so if there is an update available you can not use the direct link from the app but will have to update it manually from AndroidPit.
Planetary Wars is a fast-paced real time strategy game for Android.
Conquer enemy planets with your fleets of ships to extinguish the whole galaxy.
The basics are easy to learn but for real success it needs a good strategy.
