Perhaps next to each rank there could be an up or down arrow to show increase/decrease in rank. With a dot or some such for staying (roughly) the same. Colour coded (red,orange,yellow,blue,green?) on a scale for how much higher/lower the dragon's rank has gone since (last turnover)?

Ranks among all dragons:
(22557 dragons)

17209 All Around ↓

Your rankings:
Treasure:16691 ↑ Weight:15832 ↓
Combat:18588 ↓ Best Raid:12329 ↓
Total Raided:15389 ↓ Assists: 18591 ↓
Achievements:22096 ↓

...quick additional thought, how about a leader board for achievements?

....and maybe a chart showing the dragon's ranking progression over time?

Anyway, just quick thoughts. .oO(Donut know if any of this has been suggested already, the search seems to be broken)

Instead of drinking potions to boost power, can we not eat maidens?

I like the arrow thing. Great idea Smiley

But it will put some burden on server calculations (i.e. a dragon went from 9000 to 1000 in the ranking. All the arrows of 8k dragons between should change. And think this is happening 10 times in a second!)

May be devs can find a better solution for this idea (may be the arrow can change daily or weakly). I really want to see such a thing ^_^

If they were only calculated on a weekly basis, it wouldn't be bad

It would be nice but you can easily do this yourself with a spreadsheet or piece of paper and save the Devs the time and server stress.

We don't store ranks in anyway, and to do so continuously would not be possible so we have nothing to compare to.

So it's not possible to have a line in a DB that says something like "At Rollover Sunday Night Store Rank - compare to Rank of Previously Stored" ??

If you can't do it, it's cool . . . just asking.

Not a bad idea , but of course, IF it could be implemented as previously stated, and on the condition that no one else can see my improvements on my dragon profile page. I don't want them to know that I'm kicking butt, or if I'm been busy and not as active so I've been slipping.

No, sorry MF.  Calculating the ranks of all dragons would likely crash the servers.

Understood.  Thank you for the clarification.
