Players not ranked due to 0 score

Hi guys, I added my server on gametracker for around 1 month now.

The problem I have is that the players (player stats) are not ranked. I just discovered that it is because of the player scores being 0.

Since my server is a kreedz server, there is no score to be had by a player (since the mod is about climbing, not killing).

How could I get around that? And how can all the other kz servers get around it?

Should I fake a player score on connect? (with set_user_frags(id) ?) Or is that against the GT rules?

Thank you.

You may employ up to 3 'fake' players OR 3 undetected bots (as per this topic in Guides & FAQs: My server is banned or removed from ranking).

However, I am afraid this won't help real players with obtaining a score, and I believe they will remain untracked.

Edit to add:
A couple of observations.
- Without some sort of score, there really is nothing for GT to 'rank'.
- Players without a score still contribute to your server popularity, and therefore your server rank.

Your rank may not be high (relatively speaking), but it appears to be in line with the 3 players average that is recorded on your server page.

Current Players: 4 / 20
Average (past month): 3

That is correct. The 3 'fake players' will just show as 3/20 on my server.

But the actual players joining my server will still have the score set to 0, which means they will not be tracked by GT.

I am slightly amazed by the fact that only I have this problem, whereas all the other kz/bhop servers don't have this problem.

I made sure to check the main kreedz plugin I am running, and other servers have them as well and they don't have this problem.

EDIT:

Regarding your observations, the server rank is not a problem. It also makes sense that GT doesn't have anything to rank if the score is 0.

Now my question is how are all the other kreedz servers ranking players if the scores are 0?

Examples:

https://www.gametracker.com/server_info/cs193.csduragi.COM:27015/
https://www.gametracker.com/server_info/bhop.csxzone.ro:27015/

The live players have a score of 0, but the ones that are ranked for some reason have a score. So it looks like they do something in order to add some score to the players.

Fixed it by using the set_user_frags in client_putinserver forward.

Basically when the player joins the server, we force the score to be 1. The code looks like this:

public client_putinserver(id)
{
//some other code

set_user_frags(id, 1)
}


After 1 hour or so, the players started getting tracked, so problem solved. Thank you chimaera500 for the observations.
