Bronze tier(59% of the players) Is this misleading?


#1

Am I the only one who finds the info provided, via a tooltip when hovering over a player’s badge, a bit misleading? The badges are now shown on the replay page after today’s upgrade.


#2

Just guessing but, if everyone has only submitted the “hello world” bot version from the web editor, then everyone is in 3rd place.

After enough real submissions get uploaded I imagine the spread will look more natural.


#3

Bronze tier is everyone who is not in another tier. The leaderboard is currently buggy (off-by-one error in JavaScript, yay!) and is not showing tiers correctly; any blank badge should actually be a bronze badge.


#4

I do think that the wording of the “59%” is strange. Whilst technically true, in fact 100% of players reach at least bronze, whereas the 59% implies some exclusivity and also is a strange and jarring number to read without understanding why exactly it is.


#5

The tooltips for the higher tiers are also misleading. For example, if you’re in platinum, the tooltip says top 5%, when it really is top 6% (since top 1% is diamond and the next 5% is platinum).
