Community Question: Measuring Player Skill

July 11, 2012

Splash Damage has released several team-based multiplayer shooters over the years, and they’ve all featured various ways of showing off how skilled a player you are. For starters, experience points (XP) has been front and center on all of our in-game scoreboards, while player rank icons were featured in Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory’s Campaign mode and persistent ranks first made their debut in Enemy Territory: QUAKE Wars. In addition, we’ve had statistics sites filled with data, allowing players to examine many different aspects of their performance and in-game achievements.

With so much data out there, this week’s Community Question is this:

What do you think is the most important stat for player skill?

Please cast your vote in this week’s Community Question poll. We’d also like to know why you think your stat of choice is the right one to go for.

We’re looking forward to your replies!
