I'm just curious, with so many realms being connected both in the US and EU, if there is any plan to link them on the realm pet leaderboard pages? For example so that the ranking list for connected realms A, B and C is one joint list?
Forget connections..... That will work itself out. We have a much greater problem.....
I was trying to find away to ask about what might be done concerning "absent" pet collectors?
By "absent" I mean those who are gone or inactive for 6 months or more. Some people have either left the game for various reason whether within their control or not. Yet their info may stand what seems like indefinitely.
I think these group of peeps kind of skewer the rankings.
Inactive accounts are purged from our site altogether after 18 months of inactivity (with the exception of MVPs). But we might look into an option to "hide" people who haven't been active from 6 months or longer from the leaderboards.
It would be cool to hide inactive but I'd want it to be a toggle the user can choose to use. Personally, I don't mind if someone has an inactive account I'd like to know where I rank next to them. I don't want to feel like I'm 1st on a server only to have those accounts become active when the expansion launches and I drop to 12th.
Kalium you do have a valid point and I know how it feels. I have a new nemesis (who shall not be named) who knocked me down 1 peg. I don't mind this cause it started a fire under me and I am determined more than ever.
But I believe the chase (and the fun) would be more intense if we are all going against someone who is actually playing as opposed to those who left. Some may not even come back as well. Hence being blocked by any absent player is nuts to me.
But again just a suggestion or at least something which could be reviewed.
PS I will catch up to you Miss Thang.... "Pinky" swear!!
