First of all ill excuse for my bad english, my german is a bit better XD

I know that you do not want to spent much time in this game which is awesome i spent much time in this game and do not regret XD

But due to the fact that there are cheat times and some really good times too on most maps that it is not possible chose some harder older maps on which cheat times exist...

hope you could program this with little afford it would make the chose of the mass of awesome maps easier...

you made my fav strategie game keep on working so ill keep on buying :)

Drog, I have thought that would be helpful also. but I have learned that I just multiply the best time by 4 or 6 and that is about what it will take me to do the map. Another fact to take into account is most players do not submit the score every time they play a map but only after they get a time they are happy with. So even the average is much lower than what it takes me.

I think the reason for Average time over Best time is not that it will be closer to your own performance.

I suspect the reasoning is that Best Time can still be very fast for a very difficult map - if played perfectly - while the average time will still be much longer.  'Average time,' in a case like these, would be a better indication of the map's difficulty, time consumption, or other factors than 'best time'.

My two cents would be this - it should be an average of the single best time for each player posting scores, so that ten attempts by a pro to eke out a few more seconds don't overshadow ten more average players doing averagely.

dont understand my wrong im not a bad player im always better then average but due to this i see that some definatly have cheat times that makes the search anoying

(i think i played more than 500 had in couple 3 times installed)

this filterchange would negate the cheat times  for map searching and the fact that you map maker hopefully  :D continue making awesome maps the search for new players (i think there will be some cause the game is awesome!!!) impossible

that were my 2 cents that was y i registered to this forum of a really godlike game XD

that also i (i think) not really much work :)

yes there are a few times where they must have cheated - but not many*.
I usually come pretty close to the best time  -and if i attempt the map a second time chance is 50:50 to get in the Top3.
But keep in mind - I love my P-key and never play a whole game in realtime.

For me the fun of the game is the time management - how to end as fast as possible.



*in Map #1902 the last creeper emmiters are available at exactly 5:00 so you can finish the game in a 5:16 time  -  I don't have a clue how on earth you can get a 4min something time.
