We're all aware of the quest system here at AG, but some of us still may remember the days of the old point system, known as Armor Points, or simply AP. We're also all probably aware that the AP system is no longer used here... however, the old AP values and ranks have certainly not been forgotten!
Thus, I came up with the great idea to have a place where you can calculate how many AP you have, regardless of how many you had when the old point system was abolished or whether you were even a part of AG when it was in place.
HOW TO CALCULATE YOUR AP
Simply take the number of games rated, comments, forum posts, games submitted, and merits, and multiply them each by their respective point values. Then, visit the ranks table... which I still somehow have memorized... and match the total number you just calculated with its corresponding rank.
Here's a basic online calculator you can use... unless you're a math whiz and you prefer to do it all in your head! =P
2 AP for each game rated 2 AP for each comment 1 AP for each forum post 20 AP for each game submitted 25 AP for each merit
These were the ranks used for the AP system. Certain ranks are gender-based.
Wood Serf: 10 AP Iron* Serf: 25 AP Gold Serf: 100 AP Wood Squire: 225 AP Iron Squire: 400 AP Gold Squire: 625 AP Wood Knight: 1200 AP Iron Knight: 1750 AP Gold Knight: 2250 AP Wood Lord/Lady: 3000 AP Iron Lord/Lady: 3500 AP Gold Lord/Lady: 4000 AP Wood Duke/Duchess: 4500 AP Iron Duke/Duchess: 5200 AP Gold Duke/Duchess: 6000 AP Wood Prince/Princess: 7250 AP Iron Prince/Princess: 8500 AP Gold Prince/Princess: 10000 AP Wood King/Queen: 12000 AP Iron King/Queen: 14500 AP Gold King/Queen: 17500 AP
* Iron is interchangeable with silver.
I have... 2,583 games rated 3,858 comments 1,043 forum posts (not counting this one) 0 games submitted 0 merits
2,583 x 2 = 5,166 3,858 x 2 = 7,716 1,043 x 1 = 1,043 (this one should be especially straightforward =P) 0 x 20 = 0 0 x 25 = 0 (you can skip this step if one or more of your totals is 0)
5166 + 7716 + 1043 = 13925
So that would put me at 13,925 AP. Looking at the ranks table, my rank would be Wood King (close to Iron King!)
