Re: A New PPSC?

@Chaqa - I understand the preference for even split on draws for those who like DSS and the incentives it provides. This system isn't really aimed at people who like draw-size scoring, since they already have DSS and that's not going away - it's moreso a proposal for a more simple center-based scori...

Re: A New PPSC?

And re: WDC, completely agree that it would be nice to align with the FtF community. There ends up being two problems there though: 1) FtF scoring systems are often not zero-sum, whereas webdip's has to be (and modifying to scale to zero-sum significantly changes the incentives) 2) WDC is held in a ...

Re: A New PPSC?

@ATC Def get the concern with calling it PPSC again when it's not the same, but I'd also be a bit wary of calling it SCS or DSCC because of how close the acronyms are to currently implemented scoring systems. Especially considering old PPSC is shown ingame as SWS now, so we'd have SWS, SOS and SCS -...

I should also clarify, this is not proposing reintroducing the old version of PPSC (even split on draws, center-based split on win). This is proposing a new PPSC with center-based split on draws, winner take all on win.

Re: A New PPSC?

I'd def love it if this was added while SoS remained as an option. I should say, we'd probably keep running with SoS for a little while on Blitz anyway given it's integrated with the Nexus Live Press League. But the switch would eventually happen if PPSC got implemented here. I should also clarify, ...

Re: A New PPSC?

Quick note: I think DSS is a perfect system for players who prefer an equal split on the draw, so nothing needs changing there. I know people like having back-and-forth over whether center-based or draw-based scoring is better, but that isn't really what this thread is about, so I'd prefer that disc...

Re: A New PPSC?

For those who don't know, webDiplomacy originally had two scoring systems - PPSC (Points Per Supply Center) and WTA (Winner Takes All). Both systems split the points evenly between survivors in the event of a draw, and in the event of a solo WTA would give all points to the victor, while PPSC would ...

A New PPSC?

TL;DR I'm proposing a scoring system called PPSC, which is scored as follows: In a draw, each player gets N/34 of the pot, where N is their SC count. In a solo, the winner gets the whole pot. This system would provide a much more intuitive center-based system than SoS, which would be especially use...
