Wow, I'm not doin too bad. Right between Ace Rimmer & BATTLETRON on TotallyRandom Slow :twisted:



By lookin around tho, I can tell a lot of these players have more advanced strategies than me. How well do you execute it, tho? :wink:

I'm surprised I'm even listed on Totally Random as I haven't played a game of that in months. :shock:

Urk. The web server handing out ratings and game recordings and the like is down, the reason being a complete mystery to me. Well, the detailed reason. The root of the problem is pretty clear: Gentoo borked it. I'll try to get it fixed. Expect some bits of game server downtime over the next days, especially in the event where I'm forced to install another distribution (tricky because the server is an old laptop with only a CD drive it cannot even boot from).

Sorry about that, it was the sometimes dodgy Fritz! Box. I added my new Nintendo Pee to the wireless whitelist and that crashed it, resetting the internet connection. Twice.

What gives you that impression? I enter the scores from every game I play on the Dedcons, but I've only really played 1v1 recently.

I also accept your challange. :D

Question: You (bert) once said something to the effect of "a six player game is counted similar to five 1v1's". If that's correct, could the ranking tables show how many times a player has been ranked in this "1v1" style?

For example, I have seven games listed on the All Combined Fast table, six of which are true 1v1 (three demo, three duel) and a seventh somewhere else (not listed). Assuming that seventh game was a default six player, technically I've played 11 "games".

Why is this important? Because I think it gives a false impression.

For example, lets compare myself with Icy, also seven games, but all seven are default/random (no demo/duel)

Code: Select all

Low   Mid   Upper Gms unrated
537   609   658   7   0   KeyID 423514   Icy
525   611   -     7   0   KeyID 68135   Ace Rimmer

On first glance it would be clear that Icy is better at Defcon (who knows, never played him). However, in reality he's just played more than I have, in fact he/she's played three times as many (in terms of ranking), but you can't tell that from a quick scan. Therefore, he/she's had a better opportunity to get "ranked".

Icy 7 = 35 "1v1's"
Ace 7= 11 "1v1's"

No, I'm not complaining about my rank. I could easily raise it. I just would like (if possible) to see a more "complete" picture when looking at the All Combined Table. Pretty please? :D

What? Two winners in six player game? What does that have to do with total ranking?

the ranking in 6 player's game
1)for the combined ranking tables
