    >>> View The F2P Leaderboard HERE <<<

    Hello F2P friends and fellow travelers!

    @Nocontest and Paigexd finding Data-For-Azeroth and bringing it to our attention got me thinking that it would be a wonderful tool to actually build a working F2P leaderboard. So I got in contact with the dev and had a bit of a chat and he actually worked some functionality into the site that allows you to create a custom leaderboard!

    So I'm going to build and maintain a F2P leaderboard. Here's how you get on it
    1. Submit the name of your toon and your realm and region to this thread
    2. Make sure you disable "character only achievements". The site will not display you on the leaderboard if you have that enabled. In game, navigate to Interface > Social > uncheck the box that says "display only character achievements to others".
    3. Do not submit alts
    Restrictions:
    1. You must be a F2P to participate. Not a vet, not a Linked F2P, but a regular old, run-of-the-mill F2P.
    2. Because of some of the limitations of the way this is built, I will only maintain the leaderboard with the top 25 F2P toons on it. It'll get a bit unwieldly otherwise. So you might want to look up your toon on the database first and see if your Completion Score is high enough to warrant inclusion.
    It's also important to know how the scores are tabulated. So I'm going to copy and paste the weights here:

    "100 points for mounts, leveled pets, toys, titles, and exalted reputations. 10 points for recipes and quests. 3 points per achievement point. 1 point for appearances. Weights are subject to change."


    I did not create the score weighting, I have no control over it and its geared towards end game players entirely. So dont whine at me if you think it favors the wrong things. That said, you can sort the leaderboard by all sorts of scores (mount, recipes, HKs, achievement points, etc) to see where to stand on individual metrics.

    Once I get the initial board completed, I'll post a link at the top of this post. Much like the armory thread, do not expect me to add your characters immediately. I'll update the leaderboard a couple times a week as I have time.

    This sounds cool.

    Been wanting a reason to make a pure bred F2p account. Maybe I will now.

    I actually dont have to do anything but input a character to a favorites list. Data-For-Azeroth does the rest.

    Uh-huh. Have you recently checked the score weights on this site for technical work vs. political/interpersonal management? :p

    Truly, though, this is an awesome idea, and I'm excited to see it!

    This will be interesting to see! I won't be topping the charts with all the restrictions I've placed upon myself, but I'll be glad to receive my participation badge.

    If that's the case then this seems very realistic to uphold long term. Chuck a Crystalpall-Magtheridon-EU there so if I somehow still am in top 25 people have a free rank to jump over :) Let me know if I need to login for the API to work properly

    Gotta re-level 20 first I'd reckon

    I can't imagine you're even top 100 if you haven't played since SL, to save you the time... there's just so much shit to do in SL

    Yeah I haven't really played since like halfway through WoD, just logged in sporadically. I'm downloading the game rn though. How much time can leveling from 10 to 20 take on retail, seven minutes?

    :)

    Looking forward to see some madlad doing all quests in all zones 4 times (in some zones 8 times) to get every tmog for every armor type just so he can flex on you guys with his score.
    Since it does count every single item id you own and some items have like 10 different names with same skin.

    So have fun out there.

    And this is why I will never top any of the charts. I am a one character show!

    I'm sure you have way more quests th- wait what?!

    SOMEONE better pass me! Being #1 in anything is too much pressure.
