Webdip points question
If a player abandons/leaves a game and no one takes over their position, is that player still included in draws to end the game? Do they get a split of the webdip points from the game?

Oh. Its top 100.
Lame elitist crap like the GR system where the top players only play each other jockeying a stranglehold on the same positons.
Octavious (1716 D)
14 Sep 17 UTC
I think you overestimate the elite nature of the top ranks of GR :p. There's not much difference between a top ten or top 500 player. Anyone who knows how the pieces move, has a bit of experience, is willing to dedicate time to talking, and ready to take risks has every chance of beating any other player.

My point is there arent any top 100 players challenging shitty players regularly to give them opportunities to advance. Its not like the top 100 want to drop in rating. Its the same problem with chess ratings. The good players have little incentive to actually play people they risk rating vs

Looking at even the top 50, I dont think ive been in a game with a single one of them. And ive never been invited to be. All invitational games are typically among a very very small core sample size either insanely high RR, insanely high GR, or insanely hogh stakes point pools.

There isnt much parity.

https://sites.google.com/site/phpdiplomacytournaments/theghost-ratingslist

Ive played maybe 8 of these people in the top 50 since 2012.

Yoyo, !, DemonOverlord, xorxes, Split, HR, Amwidkle, ssoren.

I think I did okay vs them all. Ive not played any of them a ton in anything other than gunboat or a tournament.

My point is I dont think the top 100 care about playing outside the top 100 other than actually all the above mentioned
Octavious (1716 D)
14 Sep 17 UTC
Quite a few of the top 100 don't play much at all. I think that's part of why they're in the top 100, as it means they can avoid distractions. I'm convinced it was the only way I got into it back when I had a ranking, especially as I'm not a leftie :p.

The trouble is that if you only play a handful of games a year, once you've signed up for a tournament and an invitational with people you've enjoyed playing before there's precious little opportunity for much else.
brainbomb (345 D)

Much of my stats is gunboats. I never took the game of diplomacy seriously until the last year and a half where I actually wanted to talk to people and play the game. Ive found it fun but at times I look at my 600 or worse rating and see how much time I spend on this site and wonder why given my status on the forum im actually what most would consider a terrible player.
brainbomb (345 D)
14 Sep 17 UTC
When I say terrible, I mean someone outside the top 100. My win % is small given how many games ive played. My draw % is slightly above my loss column. So yea Im sub par. And mostly I end up playing other sub par players who are eager to play me because of my forum persona

Yoyoyozo (228 D Mod)

Octavious is right, except that top players don't play much. Many of them play a lot of games. In fact I'd be willing to bet that over half of the top 50 players have over 100 games under their belt.

You have to have played some number of games to reach the top, but it's certainly true that you tend to do better and end up higher if you don't try to simultaneously play twenty games.
Tom Bombadil (3120 D (G))
15 Sep 17 UTC
I think you are being somewhat unfair brain. That 7 day phase game that is semi-anon with you in it has 5 players in the top 150 in GR in it. I find people near the top enjoy playing with reliable players - and it just happens that as you move down the GR list, reliability tends to drop as well.

Now ranked 10th on GR FP games. I'm one of the worst culprits. I only play one FP game at a time. For me, it definitely helps the rating to limit the number of games I spend with Dip. PS: I'm not a socialist. I like anarchy as a political philosophy.
