Dear Pickers community, thank you so much for all the feedback you have given us since the release of CryptoPick 2.0 Beta. Based on your feedback, something was clear. We had to change the daily leaderboard rewards from being CPR-based to something else. Both to prevent cheating and to make it fairer for everyone.
Before this update, the daily ETH prizes were distributed to the players with the highest CPR. The two main issues with the CPR system were:
- Cheating: Players could create a second account to play against themselves and lose on purpose so that one account would gain CPR. Not only is it against our Terms & Conditions to play on multiple accounts, but this is entirely against the spirit of CryptoPick. Hunting these cheaters down and banning them is not a viable solution because as long as it is possible to cheat, people will cheat. Our goal was to create a system where cheating is not possible anymore.
- Fairness: Players who did great during a game by getting a high trading score but not as high as their opponent would not get any benefit from it because they would lose CPR, and that’s it. Our goal was to create a system where people who did great but didn’t win would still benefit from it.
This is why we created a new system to distribute the daily ETH prizes: The DTS system! DTS stands for Daily Trading Score.
Daily Trading Score
The Daily Trading Score (DTS) is the sum of all the scores you have between 00:00 and 23:59 CET by playing Duels.
For example, if you play two duels and get a score of 600 in the first and -500 in the second, your DTS will be 100 (600–500).
Every day at 00:00 CET, your DTS gets reset to 0.
This way, cheating becomes impossible, and there is no advantage from playing against your own account. More importantly, it becomes fairer as players who do great will benefit from their trading score even though they might lose against a better player.
What about CPR?
CPR (CryptoPick Rating) stays and can fulfill its original purpose even better! Initially, we introduced CPR as a skill level indicator so that players could get an idea of the skill level of another player. In the future, we will use this skill level indicator to match players against players with the same skill level. On top of that, CPR will have other impacts in the future, for example unlocking specific games or impacting the number of Pickies you would earn by winning games (the higher your CPR, the more Pickies you would earn) and more.
You will still win/lose CPR depending on the outcome of a Duel. However, we did update the CPR system to become more appropriate for the long term, meaning players with a high CPR will lose more CPR against players with a low CPR and the other way around.
Let’s see how these changes impact the Leaderboard. We are looking forward to your feedback and will be making more changes soon! If you have any questions concerning CryptoPick’s, future you can submit them using this form. These questions are answered during our live Ask Me Anything sessions.
