Bug and Question Wed, 01 December 2010 12:30
Bug:

I've played 2 games this morning where my opponent lost his internet connection (Sri Lanka). A bot took over but did nothing and when my opponent came back into the game he couldn't do anything either. When he left again the bot took over again but did nothing so I eventually had to leave the game too. A waste of ingots AND honour. This has happened before too but now it's annoying me.

Question:

How are the victory points awarde cos it seems really weird?

I played the same scenario against 2 different players. First I lost 6-5 and was deducted 27 merit points. Then I beat another player 6-0 yet gained only 10 merit points. WEIRD.

Pass the word...the Forum is not the place to report bugs that you've discovered or run into! Please send your problems in using the Bug Report Form.

Your honor might have been docked through this situation but everyone is in the same boat and it won't affect you in the long-run...your Ingots were most likely refunded to you 15 minutes after this crash (and yes, it is a crash if someone can't play any more).

The Victory Points will be explained in great detail when version 1.0 is released...but basically it takes into account the difficulty of the side you choose, the skill of your opponent, your level of victory, and probably a few other factors I can't remember. My guess would be that you lost the first game while playing against an opponent with lower skill than you. Then maybe you won against an opponent with less skill than you from the side that should have won anyway.

If you want to increase your skill a whole lot...win 6-0 against a player with high skill on a battle like Omaha Beach as the Allies.
Very Happy

The scenario in question did not favour either player greatly.

And until last night I was ranked #1 so that is difficult. Not a boast, just the way the program looks at it.

You're the second person to claim the #1 spot. The top spot must be turning over quickly these days! Smile

So if you were ranked #1, you are going to lose points easily (since everyone is ranked under you) and it will be hard to gain points. It's hard to stay at the top!! Very Happy

Robot "Hot Heat Swapping" does not always work properly. This is something we are currently working on.
