Your ranking is more or less useless, or even worse it may be counterproductive, because what Defcon community lacks right now is not competitiveness, but fair-play and capacity of players to enjoy just on playing the game. All this mindless focus on results destroy not only the good relation between people, but even the game itself.
Hear, hear! This is the route decay of the game and community and it is stifling growth. When you have one of your top players still winning at any costs what enjoyment and spirit is fostered? Why on earth do you think I left the community many years ago! In the end when you feel your time has been wasted by ungamesmanship it leaves a foul taste. I would much rather play an honourable game than deal with ghosting, nuking your own cities to remove points, slowing down to BOR levels stealing multiple hours out of my day or goodness knows what else people have come up with these days.
I reiterate the demise of 6 player FFA and Totally Random and the enshrinement of 1v1 and 2v2 has killed the overall community due to the playing philosophy fostered from smaller and smaller competition. There is a place for those game styles but the utter collapse of 6 player FFA is deeply worrying as that is the true heart and nexus of Defcon from which all other game styles emerge and also more importantly where new players can gradually develop their play styles and improve over a more welcoming learning curve and longitudinal progression.
