GR for Live/Hybrid games?

#1 Post by chluke » Fri Mar 12, 2021 2:24 am

Does a Live game (with 5 to 10 minute turns) that converts to a longer game (such as 1 or 2 day phases) after x hours, get Ghost Rated as a "Live" game or a standard game?

And what is the max phase time, please, for a live game to count under "Live" GR (eg. 5 min, 10 min, 1 hour...??)

Don't know how things are done now but, in the past, GR was always calculated from the end state of the game. So the players, settings, etc. that were there when it ended. If that's the same then ones that are converted would not count as live.

I don't quite remember what the cut-off was but most of the stuff between 1d (non-live) and 10min (live) is pretty unplayable imo so I don't think there are a ton of games in that range.

Mods, would one of you versed in GR please answer the below questions?

(Thank you for your guess, Yonni. As the hybrid live/standard game is relatively new, I'm not certain if the end of game status is the GR trigger for this.)

I do know one answer: live games are those in the range 5 to 30 minutes per phase. Longer phases (1 hour or more) mean the game is considered non-live.

Re hybrid games, since GR is calculated post-mortem I expect Yonni's guess to be correct, but I'm not sure (and I'm too lazy to go to github and check the code ;) )

Anyone played a Live/Hybrid time game (that changes from minute phases to longer after x hours) and notice if was their Live GR or standard GR that changed after the game?
