When browsing the Highest Rated categories in Trials Evolution‘s Track Central users would often find sub-par tracks amidst truly great ones, often with great tracks getting bumped from the top of the list. That all changed this morning when RedLynx and Microsoft implemented a server-side update to patch things up.
Previously players could have their track rated five stars, but only with one rating, which we would assume is the creator’s friend or another LIVE account on the same machine. It got rated once (and only once) five stars, and often other users couldn’t even finish the track to downvote it. This morning’s update now sorts highest rated tracks by two criteria: the number of stars it’s received and the number of votes. This means that a single-vote five star track will never again steal the spot of a 1,000 vote five star track.
