Re: Taking over a disorder

People who abandon a game score a loss for GR. Replacement players are also counted for their GR. All that you want is already active :-D Are you sure that CDs work against someone's GR? And, if so, how are the winners' ghost ratings calculated - are they based off on the originally player or the r...

Re: Development Update - Ghost Ratings and Profiles

Overall isn't calculated as a combination of the other ones, it's calculated independently (but with similar ingredients). Let's say you beat me in a GB game. My overall ghost rating is quite high but my GB ghost rating is near the bottom. If you beat me in overall, you'll gain a lot of points but f...

I see no reason why that wouldn't be possible.

Re: Announcing the 2021 WebDip World Cup!

Looks like team Toronto is out some players.

Anyone from Toronto, GTA, Golden Horseshoe, Upper Canada, the Canadian Shield looking for a team?

Re: Ghost Rating Challenge

We need a replacement France in game 4. Is there any interest in taking it over? It's still a viable position.

Re: Development Update - Ghost Ratings and Profiles

43% win rate? Hot damn.

So I guess the only other question would be do gunboaters feel the need to make distinctions between live and non-live

Do you think live people care about the distinction between FP and GB? Do gunboaters care about the distinction between live and non-live GB?

Re: Development Update - Ghost Ratings and Profiles

The issue here is that the GR categories have been in existence for decades now. I did not determine what goes in each category, or how they are made (trust me, I would have done things differently if setting up a brand new ranking system). So we can't just change the categories to match the other ...

Re: Development Update - Ghost Ratings and Profiles

Squigs, I think the point that's being made is that unifying the GR and game stat categories would add a lot of clarity. How they're named and explained is obviously tricky and completely up to you. Does the code allow for mouseover events? That would be a very clean way to explain that FP excludes ...

2. Dejan0707
3. MadMarx
4. VillageIdiot
5-6?
7. TheWizard
8?

That said, the categories don't match up exactly, for instance, there's no Variant-only GR.
I don't think there would be much grumbling if GR was tweaked to fit into the categories (or maybe better yet vice versa). All the different terms are probably a little confusing to the new player anyways.

Re: Development Update - Ghost Ratings and Profiles

For the game stats, one improvement might be to have the same categories as GR, so people can compare between the two? (Ie. Add in live and 1v1 sections.) I'd take it a step further and not separate game stats from ranks. Click on Full Press and it pulls down your stats and rating. Click on Gunboat...

Re: Development Update - Ghost Ratings and Profiles

Awesome job all around. Thank you all for how much effort you put into the site. I was going through the HoF and stumbled on Bearnstien. How is GR handling banned players? Perhaps that should at least be scrubbed from the rankings. edit: It also says that MM has a peak GR of 771 all-tie but a peak o...

Re: All Diplomacy Scoring Stinks

I don't think any ranking system aims at predicting future outcomes. Counting messages per game is an interesting statistic, but don't confuse correlation with causation. A player that is eliminated early will send fewer messages than a player who lasts until the end. A player that was eliminated e...

Re: All Diplomacy Scoring Stinks

In your profile, there's a tally for the number of classic press games. I just used that. If anything, it overcounts messages/game because it excludes variants in the game count.
