Honor Dot Colors Mon, 04 April 2011 15:36
Okay, I just saw something I've never seen before: A Single RED dot on a player's "Honor" score.

This player had something like 60+ games under their belt and the Rankf of "Captain".

Are the colors related to connection speed?

Or is a single red dot some sort of badge of infamy?

Mainly, even if it's just an indicator of a terrible ISP, I would like to know what I have to do to AVOID ever getting one?

Possibly!

It just means that the individual has dropped out of of many games while they were in progress. Assuming the motives of this particular individual will get you into trouble. It may be that they have a bad computer connection which causes this.

Yeah, my immediate assumption (from too many years playing online games) was that the red was a latency indicator, and the single dot an extrapolation of that, but I forgot that "Honor" was affected negatively by game drops.

I would always rather give the benefit of the doubt, stevens, and this helps me do so. I know how crummy I would feel if I had a "Do Not Game With This Player" sign just because my connection sucked. Sad

Thanks for the tip!
