Playing with less than 7?
Does anyone know if we are able to play a game with less than 7 people? And if we can, does anyone know how we go about doing that? Our current game will only start if we have 7.

Western Meddling in Iranian Protests
So this is great and all. Encouraging protests and stuff. Um didnt this happen in Iran in Arab Spring too? When people start dying were gonna look pretty bad again. Like we encouraged a coup but didnt actually care about the consequences.

But then like, if you use the actual GR you get all these gunboaters who can't really play fp really well on top anyway so it isn't accurate either
Hellenic Riot (1574 D (G))
07 Dec 17 UTC
If by "all these" you mean 3 people in the top 40, none of whom are likely to sign up... Sure. You have to be truly exceptionally good at gunboats to actually climb up GR on the back of them.
Hellenic Riot (1574 D (G))
07 Dec 17 UTC
Whoops, 4 people.
ghug (4049 D Mod (B))

I mentioned earlier that I think regular GR is a better predictor of FP results than FP GR. ATC may have actually run the numbers on this at some point.
ghug (4049 D Mod (B))
07 Dec 17 UTC
How are you counting four? I see Nikola, Split, seth, CS, El_maestro, genghiz, josemurc, swordsman at least, and xorxes is good at FP, but it's definitely not how he got up there.
Hellenic Riot (1574 D (G))
07 Dec 17 UTC
Aye, sample size matters. Excluding the PPSC games means your sample size for old members is far smaller than it really should be. Sure, there's a few exceptions who either always played DSS or have just played a hell of a lot of games in total, but in general the sample size is way poorer for FP GR, and as a result, the predictions are worse.
Hellenic Riot (1574 D (G))
07 Dec 17 UTC
Nikola, Split, El_Maestro and josemurc were the four I was counting as being GB-only players, though I missed seth there. Wasn't aware swordsman only plays GB. CS might not play a lot of press, but he proved he was a rather good player on it when he did. Similar to xorxes.
ghug (4049 D Mod (B))
07 Dec 17 UTC
The CS/xorxes case study is another reason regular GR is better. Most of those top gunboaters would probably make good press players, at least if press were conducted in their native languages (xorx's native language is Lojban, if anyone was wondering).

That broke the translator I found on the internet.
Zybodia (355 D)
07 Dec 17 UTC
I don't play enough games (or well enough) to be at the top of any table, but the fact I have two games that count for FP GR in nearly eight years seems somewhat nonrepresentative of my total body of work. That said, I guess there's not too much disadvantage from starting in a lower group.
"Yes, my first toy in the in place is language from Lojban."-Xorxes

How accurate of a translation is that?
ghug (4049 D Mod (B))
07 Dec 17 UTC
That's what I found too. I'm guessing it's "Yes, my first game on this site was spoken in Lojban." or something roughly along those lines.

Isn't the point behind lobjan that it is logically impossible to be ambiguous? A bit of an irony there
ghug (4049 D Mod (B))
07 Dec 17 UTC
I think the fact that there are only about 200 speakers means that the flaw lies in the lack of competent programmers.
damian (675 D)
07 Dec 17 UTC
I'm willing to make the switch to Normal GR if that is the methodology preferred by the majority of the players. As I've said there are trade offs to both methods and I'm not married to the choice I made.

I'll take a look at bumping it back if it's a common problem. I don't know why y'all can't go on vacations in the summer like normal people. Since I blocked out the schedule purposely to avoid those kind of problems.

Fewer live classic games these days?
Looking back through the last couple months' completed games, it feels like there are far fewer Classic live games than there were a few years ago. Do other people have the same feeling?
