Favourite Statistic about yourself &/or other players

#1 Post by MajorMitchell » Mon Mar 04, 2019 7:06 am

What's your favourite stats about yourself or another player ? I was just glancing at mine. Played 133 games, won 13 (& this is the bit I like) same as civil disorders 13 & civil disorders taken on.. about 21 .. So I've deliberately chosen civil disorders the same number of times that I've won games .. Hoorah !!!

My solo rate is good (23/179) but I need to get eliminated less.

- I have never played a ranked, non-live Classic game.
- I have 1552 points; only 352 of those were directly obtained by playing games.
- I have a 2% defeat rate.

Pah! I played three times as many games of classic diplomacy here as you did last year! Any more cheek like that and I'll make sure to tell anyone who asks to pm you with all of their mod questions :evil:

Although I know some others are far more efficient (including those that have joined around the same time as me - i.e. nguyenmt and Theoneandonly), I have earned 3010 points in just 332 days. That's about 9 points a day.

(Even if SplitDiplomat has earned about 35/day... I am more efficient than MadMarx, one of the greats of this site.)

This does not equate to skill, oh no no no. It's literally just bragging rights.

My favourite statistical data would be number of messages divided by number of games as it is the most telling piece of info available.

Humble boast, so far my Wins > Defeats, with Draws being the result of 50% of my games. That's something to be proud of, I think; something seems to be working. I also like what Dejan0707 said about finding who the talkative players are, but most of the game I play are anonymous so I don't see that info until the end of the game :P

With little effort it is possible to get the correct value by looking at player's finished games. That was easier to do in the past when there wasn't so many 1vs1 games.

Interesting posts. I was thinking along the quirky, odd or amusing line when I set up this thread. As with my Civil Disorder matching my number of wins, I could "officially return" after my October dummy spit by joining a few games, have another dummy spit and have more Civil Disorders than wins & hammer my reliability rating even more.
So are there Amusing or Eccentric stats ???

97% reliability rating out of 155 games finished (lots of them before we had reliability ratings even though one of those CD's still counts against me)

And I've given roughly twice as many likes as I've received in the forum.

At one point, I was number 3 for live games in Ghost Ratings. I actually used that in a job interview to show I had a knack for strategy.

How terrible I am at live games. :eyeroll:

Obviously I'm not good under time pressure, and to make matters worse, 5-minute live games only ever allow me about 3 1/2 minutes -- I assume because of my time clock lag? (Any way to fix that time lag?)

Could you explain the problem in more detail? Preferably to webdipmod@gmail.com

3.5 minutes are more than I need for a GB though. 1-2 minutes and then it's back to my Youtube video. So with more practice I think you should be able to do it.
