Very appreciate the feedback from plays of established server.
The ranking it self initially was an idea to help players to achieve success in short-term world. And this is part of my spare time thing. Before it officially online, I have tested it on the past few newly launched world, and getting continues feedback from dozens of players who have pretty good strategies to improve AsRank. AsRank is trying to give a better experience for anyone in this community.
For what you are asking, AsRank is a ranking on Fleet Values, apart from the built in pax/cargo Statics. The reason AsRank would not going to account for cash at bank, terminals investment, or stock investments is same as why AirlineSim not rank all the airlines in the game by their money(cash/investment overall). It’s way too utilitarianism. I insist AirlineSim is about Airline Managing rather than only for making profit.
But your points still stand in my opinion, as I deeply understand how you gonna feel when holding billions of cash in hand while opponents does not. As I said, it was founded for short-term world initially. but I could use your suggestions and more from the community’s to help AsRank improving the quality of ranking in the next half of the year.
