Re: Development Update - Ghost Ratings and Profiles

Seem to me that it would go against the transitive property of mathematics. But, Yonni, I'm not the math wiz that you are, so if you look at my GR rating numbers and think it still makes sense that the overall rating can have such a large magnitude of disparity vs "peak" when the three sub-component...

Re: Development Update - Ghost Ratings and Profiles

Does it make sense, mathematically, that under the updated ratings, my Press/Live/Gboat rating are equal to/1 pt below/3 pts below my respective peak ratings, yet my overall rating is 27 points below my peak?? I love and thank you all for the automated ratings! Just wondering if this is a odd math p...

Re: how tf am i suppose to join games?

Seriously, though, playing "bots" should NOT be the answer. I understand the concern, but there are other ways around this. Playing one turn against a "bot" raises your RR?!? Really. Press Diplomacy players do not join WebDip to play bots. And, showing you can enter a turn or more against a bot at y...

Re: how tf am i suppose to join games?

It doesn't seem right that someone should start with less than 100% reliability since they haven't missed any turns. How are they supposed to join any games if they start with a low RR and don't want to play against bots? A lot of us don't want to play against bots. I never had to play against bots....

Re: how tf am i suppose to join games?

@jonachad, you can disregard 90kicvesb's answer (unless you want to play against bots) because you start with a perfect 100% "reliability rating" since you have not missed any in-game turns. Simply choose games/new games, and there are up to 36 current games filling for you to choose from. You shoul...

This Chaos game above may be the better choice, with one day phases it should move along nicely.

Re: August Ghost Ratings Published

Do all active Web Dip variants (except 1 V 1) now count in Gunboat Ghost Ratings?

In the past, I think World and American did not, right?

Re: new Chaos gunboat game

Teccles, there's a good chance you get knocked out the first year and don't have to worry about that ;p I set it at just 1 excused missed turn (instead of more), because it would be a shame to loose someone for one accidental lapse. I expect that if multiple people miss the same turn they all use up...

Re: Taking over a disorder

Another factor to consider: I have seen many a player abandon games when they have a losing position, possibly (or maybe 'likely'??) because they don't want to take the GR rating loss. I've seen this with otherwise very reliable and highly ranked players as well. If BOTH the player who starter AND ...

Re: ODC 2019 Tournament Discussion (finished games only)

I would never ever stab someone who treats me with honesty and respect. And if someone does lie to me or stab me, I will not stab back if they apologize and make the repatriations that I request. This is a game of honor and diplomacy for true ladies and gentlemen, not for lying backstabbing scoundre...
