the scoring is mad!!?? Sun, 13 February 2005 19:04
This just cant be right:

zoulias Score: 69 Completed: +82 Failed: -0 Longest path: +10 Score: 161

thorba68 Score: 81 Completed: +45 Failed: -9 Longest path: +0 Score: 117

How on earth is this possible? To be honest, none of the games Ive played make sense score wise, especially when ive trounced a bot cos someone quite, i get +35 and they get +80!!!!
Vey flawed scoring system

EDIT: an even madder score!:

zoulias Score: 60 Completed: +59 Failed: -9 Longest path: +10 Score: 120

luck07 Score: 72 Completed: +5 Failed: -30 Longest path: +0 Score: 47

lucky FAILED 30! He got trounced! What on earth has he done to deserve a HIGHER SCORE THAN ME????

Uhm... yeah, he failed 30 and had a final score of 47, much lower than your 120. You're not reading the scores correctly. In the first game, you crushed your opponent 161 to 117. The first "score" is just the total of your tracks.

You need to find the ratings calculation forumla that's linked elsewhere on the forums, although it apparantly has a multiplier of 8 for heads up rather than 32. For simplicity, if you are playing heads up and your rating is within 50 points of your opponent's, you will gain or lose 4 points. If your rating is 50-150 points apart, you will gain or lose 3 or 5 points (depending on who's higher). If your rating is 150-250 points apart, you will gain or lose 2 or 6 points. If your rating is 250+ points apart, you will gain or lose 1 or 7 points. These are ROUGH guestimates and there's also a point where your rating is so much higher than your opponent's that you can't gain points at all for a win.

It *would* be nice if it would tell you how your rating is affected in the final scoring though. Maybe they'll get around to adding that in someday. Smile

to answer your question as to how the first score listed is figured, that is the point total for the trains you have laid... the second score listed is the final score....
