Score accurate with this new leaderboard
Leaderboards are almost an obsession with any gamer. How can one play without knowing one’s scores? The leaderboard always proves to be a motivator to a player. And deep down each gamer loves the leaderboards because it’s where he can prove his mettle.
To all those who keep their scores at Wordament, there is some great news. When the top players’ leaderboard was introduced, it was meant to track each player’s average score and then rank them. However, over the time it was realized that the computation of average score was wrong and callow. So, now when you will check the leaderboard, you will find that it has changed completely.
When leaderboard was launched, only full games were being counted, and a full game is defined by a game that a user has played over 1: 50. But when it was computed, the average score was taken out by taking into consideration every complete game that the gamer has ever played. The problem with this, which was realized later, was that it did not consider the improvement over time.
With the old system, all the early games were still holding down the recent and improved games. With the new system, much smaller windows are put together, so that the gamer find the exact and accurate score. This new change has brought about a lot of accuracy to the Top Players leaderboard and constantly displays the top scorers.
For all the gamers here; who might have been a little miffed about their scores earlier, will be now for sure more happier than before and score more.
