Re: Balanced Map-Packs

You can't run off the map on Astral Port. The terrain there is completely impassable. The Competetive Map Pack you linked there is horribly outdated, try Random Map Pack (RMP) or Rushed By Yetis (RBY) on the Addon server. They have basically the same maps but they are up to date. As far as I know th...

Re: AI Recruitment Deficiency

HI should have usage = useless trashcan... :wink: I thought that thre AI has already been improved in 1.9. Wasn't there an AI project from someone going on? Generally I think the AI could be much better if it wasn't a poor attempt at strong AI and instead was designed like an expert system, trying t...

Re: Will the footpad be nerfed in 1.10?

Removing the negative physical resistances would make the footpad even better than it is now. I don't think that the resistances should be touched at all. I suggest you read the old discussion about the footpad issue before you throw around so many different proposals. The problem with the footpad i...

Re: The Crazy Comeback Cave

I bring you here a most curious ladder match between Spelp and Kral. This is probably the new king of comeback matches or something. I have lost of the actual count of comebacks and close to comebacks in this game. It was long but still fun to watch a lot of drakes and elves getting slaughtered cont...

Re: Ladder Site Online...

Good thing the ladder is running again. Thank you chains for your efforts. @milwac: Good job with the Trueskill rating there, looks really good! I would be interested to see some rating graphs for players that are less consistent to see how their rating changed over the time. Let's say for thefish, ...

Re: Improving my play

... 2) You should always put high priority of getting and retaining villages. ... I wouldn't put a too high priority on that though. A lot of games are lost because of greed, that is players grabbing villages from the opponent without actually having the units around to hold them. You gain a small ...

Re: Ladder Site Online...

I looked up glicko and the way milwac handled the RD values is correct. Only the RD increasing over time misses. Now the glicko ranking looks a lot better already. There are still problems which make the Glicko rating system not very suitable for our needs. I find the assumption that the certainty o...

Re: Ladder Site Online...

Haha.. what can I say, fact is sometimes stranger than fiction ;) But still I won't be dissapointed so much, because these results have always decreased the RD, never increased it. Say a player took a break for a year, and came back much more stronger than before. The RD should be set to the maximu...

Re: Ladder Site Online...

@milwac Are you sure that your Glicko implementation and successive tests with the ladder data are flawless? There are a few things that don't add up for me... :wink: If losing vs much lower rated players gets punished so extremely like you said why are the Glicko graphs you posted perfectly flat af...

Re: Ladder Site Online...

I just want drop in that Insinuator is wrong and Scatha is right about "underrated" in the opposition table of the player profile. A player was underrated at the time of the report of a game when he had a lower elo than he has currently. It has nothing to do with having a lower elo than your opponen...
