Is there a way to make it so that if you score the same score you can both hold that position?

No. In the case of a tie, whoever got the score first is considered higher in rank because hey, they got that score first. You're lower in rank because you didn't beat them. Besides, having two first-placers or anything like that would get confusing, and SaS would have to do hard-coded editing to make that work anyways (it's not a setable option)

But I spent less time getting there in the Spider Man game!

It'd suck because I think dozens are tied for the bronze for wins, but the current guy gets it because... his name is purple or something.

Yea, but it sucks for stupid games like Deal or No Deal, where one guy gets 1,000,000, and that's it, he's champion forever.

And it's also not fair for people who didn't join until later. If SaS gets a high score and then Nub 1 gets a high score of the same caliber, then that's not fair that SaS gets all the credit, now is it?

Well, for one, in most games you aren't going to get the EXACT same score. >_> Maybe a difference of a few points, but, not the exact. XD

Doing this would be MUCH more work than it would even be worth, so, it isn't happening. <_<

Then I request games with a maximum high score be taken off the champion list or something.

Deal or No Deal is the perfect example of a game that sucks as far as arcade rank goes.

Please, listen to me when I say this.

Either reset them, or remove them.

But you'd have to reset it continually and I have a feeling that'll be more of a hassle than it's worth.

The Arcade system has an Auto-Prune feature for scores, but that'll prune every game. It'll delete scores after X amount of days, I assume. Sadly, the Arcade doesn't allow you to disable scoring/ranking per game.

So... we have two options here if you guys really care about this:

1. Remove games like Deal or No Deal from the Arcade completely
2. Enable Auto-Pruning for all games and just have members have to reclaim their high score each time

Option 1 or just leave the games be is my opinion.

"It'll delete scores after X amount of days, I assume."

Sooo... set it at 90 or something, and then that's practically three months they can be the winner, and then they can earn it back if they really want to.

Alright, SAS, Xero, or someone, remove the damn games with score caps. It seems that's what people want.
