I'm about sick and tired of getting points when I lose. There's something very charity and insulting about it.

Just wondering if anyone else felt the same...

The normal standings are a measure of experience. When you lose, you get experience, hence, you gain pointspoints. If you want another sort of rating, check out the alternate ratings or the Glicko ratings

But do you really gain more experience from being decimated in fives turns by a Marshal than you would testing news plans and strategies over twenty turns with a Major?

The system gives the same amount of experience points for either case.

Personally, I gain more knowledge and understanding from the 20 turns with the Major vs the 5 turns with the Marshal.

However, that being said, both scenarios show me my blantantly stupid errors that lead to my horrendous defeats.

Beating the Major gives more experience, and also gives more points than losing at any rank.

Like I said, if you don't like the regular standings, just ignore them and use one of the other two instead.
