Maybe bring back the BAT ranking leaderboard, and have higher-priority maps be worth the most points.Absolutely brilliant idea.
I'm fairly neutral on this. If too many restrictions are placed on BATs, then the only result will be that fewer people want to be BATs. I could see the minimum being raised to like 10 or 12, but not much higher. I think what we really need now isn't more restrictions on ranking low-SP maps, but rather, more incentives to mod high-SP maps. Maybe bring back the BAT ranking leaderboard, and have higher-priority maps be worth the most points.I'm sure you know what could happen if a BAT gets greedy.
A good reputation is not required for your map to be ranked, but it definitely helps. Whether you are known to help a lot of users with their ranked maps, known to have made good maps in the past, or just a generally friendly person on IRC, your maps are more likely to get looked at by other people. No kudosu system that could ever be put in place will change that, it's just the society we live in.I don't disagree with that. In fact I do agree with you there; modding maps of mappers you are familiar with gives a greater chance of you not "wasting your time."
I have a choice to mod one map. One of them is a person I've known through osu for years, has 10+ maps that I enjoy playing, and is a song I like. I have never seen the other person's name before, other than the daily "can you look at my beatmap" PM I see in my inbox. It's pretty apparently who's map I would look at first.
Maybe my logic is flawed here, but how many of you can say that you wouldn't do the same thing in the above example?
I think Real1 is a lurker and should stop posting in these threads.Sorry, Pep. >.<
But making the guidlines too harsh will result in too many players with too less mappers.You're saying there are too many maps for players to play?
imho people need to learn how to mapI don't think these are ranking criteria because they are subjective.
new, inventive patterns
mapping is an art, just like drawing, music, etc.
if you don't pick the right song, don't map imaginatively, don't add interesting effects to give your map that extra oomph, your map will suck, and no one will want to look at it, no matter how many stars you have
