1. How are "points" calculated?

A new player has 1000 points. Every time you make a kill, you gain a certain amount of points depending on a) the victim's points rating, and b) the weapon you used. If you kill someone with a higher points rating than you, then you gain more points than if you kill someone with a lower points rating than you. Therefore, killing newbies will not get you as far as killing the #1 player. And if you kill someone with your knife, you gain more points than if you kill them with a rifle, for example.

When you are killed, you lose a certain amount of points, which again depends on the points rating of your killer and the weapon they used (you don't lose as many points for being killed by the #1 player with a rifle than you do for being killed by a low ranked player with a knife). This makes moving up the rankings easier, but makes staying in the top spots harder.

Specifically, the equations are:

Killer Points = Killer Points + (Victim Points / Killer Points) × Weapon Modifier × 5

Victim Points = Victim Points - (Victim Points / Killer Points) × Weapon Modifier × 5

2. What are all the weapon points modifiers?

Weapon points modifiers are used to determine how many points you should gain or lose when you make a kill or are killed by another player. Higher modifiers indicate that more points will be gained when killing with that weapon (and similarly, more points will be lost when being killed by that weapon). Modifiers generally range from 0.00 to 2.00.

3. How can I edit my profile and set real name, e-mail address, homepage and ICQ number?

Player profile options can be configured by saying the appropriate gameme_set command while you are playing on a participating gameserver. To issue commands, push your chat key and type the command text.

Syntax: say /gameme_set option value

Acceptable "options" are:

  • realname
    Sets your Real Name as shown in your profile.
    Example: /gameme_set realname Joe Bloggs

  • email
    Sets your E-mail Address as shown in your profile.
    Example: /gameme_set email joe@hotmail.com

  • homepage
    Sets your Home Page as shown in your profile.
    Example: /gameme_set homepage http://www.geocities.com/joe/

  • icq
    Sets your ICQ Number as shown in your profile.
    Example: /gameme_set icq 123456789

Note: These are not standard Half-Life console commands. If you type them in the console, Half-Life might give you an error.

4. My rank is embarrassing. How can I opt out?

Say /gameme_hideranking while playing on a participating gameserver. This will toggle you between being visible on the Player Ranking and being invisible.

Note: You will still be tracked and you can still view your Player Details page. Use the Search page to find yourself.
