hey guys. I love this game its so funny. just started to play a bit online and its fun as hell because the factions are pretty nicely balanced so far as I can tell.

but the ladder... I dont know. look at the top ten and you get what I mean. theres no way in the world someone can have such high winning percentages in a RTS stile game. This is only possible in fighting games for example but from my experience you dont get above 60/70% (max) in a more or less balanced rts. maybe here it is possible because the game is far less complex than the standart rts games. but Iam 99% sure that those ppl are either cheating (drop hack comes to mind) or exploiting the ladder somehow.

what do you think?

Friends are not the reason for this problem, although they could be exploited for this. The real reason is that the player base is not as large as in the big RTS-games. In Starcraft II, if you look for a match, the game can choose from a hundred players the player whose skill mathes yours best. In Swords & Soldiers there are usually only a few people looking for a match at the same time, so if you are really good, you will often still play against a beginner, for the simple reason that there are no pro players looking for a match at the same time.

So if you can somewhere get us a million more players, the ladders will automatically be fixed... ;)

I was thinking the same thing. The moment I bought the game, I checked the ladder to see what the rankings were, and there was one guy with like 420 wins and 10 losses.

the first thing that comes to mind is something like drop hacking

but as joost said, that makes sense.

Honestly, My record is 51-4 on this game so far and I love it. I usually win within 3-4 minutes but there have been a few people that actually got the edge and beat me. I think its just that there are so many people who just hop online and don't do the single player so they have no idea how to even use the units together. The only bad thing is the leaderboard messed up and now says I have won 10/55 when it should say 51!!!!! I dont think you can cheat on this game, but I definitely think Vikings are the hardest to win with.
