Is my idea clearer now? face-smile.png Hope so face-tongue.png
Yes definitely clearer! It's a good idea! But TBH I can't exactly understand the ramifications and limits of your system until I try implementing it. So I'll comment on your whole post when relevant Kind of like your calculations for many players.
I know that it is completely different than yours. face-grin.png
Not really. My idea is really to look for functionality first, hence why my models were different. But I intend to move closer to yours bit by bit!
he simpliest idea for rank I know is to find proportion of win/all games. And since "rating" is providing decimals, the (almost) most precise equation for rank value would be:
Huh, why not? But I don't see really the point if glicko has been proved to be effective? Maybe it could be a nice feature to add first. So I would focus on that measure first and implement the whole interface for players before working on glicko2. It seems like little work if I use your models first.
but since Widelands is a doocracy and since you are developing the tools, you make a choice face-wink.png
Then I'll see how I choose to implement it, when I'm on it. I think you have the best global design in mind. So I'll be heavily influenced by your models.
Thanks a lot anyway, you removed me a lot of bothersome problems!
But how is it possible to make the list easy to fill with new maps? How should we decide which map is equal enough?
It'll never be exact. But I don't think any existing rts game (or any game more complicated than grids) that can pretend to say differently.
BUT we can vote in the community for the map (IIRRC there is a tool for votes on the website). And we change the maps every seasons for 3 reasons:
it might appear maps thoughts to be balanced, after more games turn out to be very unbalanced.
We can add new maps
It allow for diversity for regular ranked game players.
why not making "challenges" every quarter? And to sum the results from all time? Then the ranking will be alive for a long time.
Why make a meta ranking? Already a ranking for every quarter is neat. And it will keep the ranks alive for longer
