  • "Private Baldrick: No, the thing is: The way I see it, these days there's a war on, right? and, ages ago, there wasn't a war on, right? So, there must have been a moment when there not being a war on went away, right? and there being a war on came along. So, what I want to know is: How did we get from the one case of affairs to the other case of affairs?
    Captain Blackadder: Do you mean "How did the war start?"
    Lieutenant George: The war started because of the vile Hun and his villainous empire- building.
    Captain Blackadder: George, the British Empire at present covers a quarter of the globe, while the German Empire consists of a small sausage factory in Tanganiki. I hardly think that we can be entirely absolved of blame on the imperialistic front.
    Lieutenant George: Oh, no, sir, absolutely not.
    [aside, to Baldrick]
    Lieutenant George: [He's] Mad as a bicycle!
    Private Baldrick: I heard that it started when a bloke called Archie Duke shot an ostrich 'cause he was hungry.
    Captain Blackadder: I think you mean it started when the Archduke of Austro-Hungary got shot.
    Private Baldrick: Nah, there was definitely an ostrich involved, sir.
    Captain Blackadder: Well, possibly. But the real reason for the whole thing was that it was too much effort not to have a war.
    Lieutenant George: By Gum, this is interesting. I always loved history. The Battle of Hastings, Henry VIII and his six knives, all that.
    Captain Blackadder: You see, Baldrick, in order to prevent war in Europe, two superblocs developed: us, the French and the Russians on one side, and the Germans and Austro-Hungary on the other. The idea was to have two vast opposing armies, each acting as the other's deterrent. That way there could never be a war.
    Private Baldrick: But, this is a sort of a war, isn't it, sir?
    Captain Blackadder: Yes, that's right. You see, there was a tiny flaw in the plan.
    Private Baldrick: What was that, sir?
    Captain Blackadder: It was bollocks.
    Private Baldrick: So the poor old ostrich died for nothing then"

Reliability Rating: 100%

Reliability Explained:

What is Reliability?

Reliability is how consistently you avoid interrupting games. Any un-excused missed turns hurt your rating. If you have any un-excused missed turns in the last 4 weeks you will receive an 11% penalty to your RR for each of those delays. It is very important to everyone you are playing with to be reliable but we understand mistakes happen so this extra penalty will drop to 5% after 28 days. All of the un-excused missed turns that negatively impact your rating are highlighted in red below. Excused delays will only negatively impact your base score, seen below. Mod excused delays do not hurt your score in any way.

Live Game: If a game had phases 60 minutes long or less any excused missed turns will only impact your rating for 28 days total. The penalty is the same, 5% long term and 6% short term, except the long term penalty is for 28 days and the short term is for 7 days.
System Excused: If you had an "excused missed turn" left this will be yes and will not cause additional penalties against your rating.
Mod Excused: If a moderator excused the missed turn this field will be yes and will not cause additional penalties against your rating.
Same Period Excused: If you have multiple un-excused missed turns in a 24 hour period you are only penalized once with the exception of live games, if this field is yes it will not cause additional penalties against your rating.

What happens if my rating is low?

Many games are made with a minimum rating requirement so this may impact the quality of games you can enter. If you have more then 3 non-live un-excused missed turns in a year you will begin getting temporarily banned from making new games, joining existing games, or rejoining your own games.

  • 1-3 un-excused delays: warnings
  • 4 un-excused delays: 1-day temp ban
  • 5 un-excused delays: 3-day temp ban
  • 6 un-excused delays: 7-day temp ban
  • 7 un-excused delays: 14-day temp ban
  • 8 un-excused delays: 30-day temp ban
  • 9 or more un-excused delays: infinite, must contact mods for removal
  • Live game excused turns are penalized independently for temporary bans. 1-2 un-excused missed turns in live games will be a warning, and the 3rd, and any after that will result in a 24 hour temp ban. The 2 warnings reset every 28 days resulting in significantly more yearly warnings for live game players then the normal system.

    Factors Impacting RR:


    Base Percentage: 100%
    (100* (1 - Yearly Missed Turns/Yearly Turns))

    Added Penalties:

    Yearly Unexcused Missed Turns: 0 for a penalty of 0%
    Recent Unexcused Missed Turns: 0 for a penalty of 0%
