Discussion about the Skill system Mon, 13 December 2010 21:46
Dear M44 Online Officers:

There were many comments and suggestions lately about the Skill system.

We would like to develop the various ideas and see what comes out of the discussion. We are aware that the current system is not perfect, even though it has some virtues that might not be obvious to everyone.

For this reason, we wrote a memo that describes the current system in details at http://cdn1.daysofwonder.com/memoir44-online/en/img/M44-ELO- Ranking.pdf
Please start by reading it. It explains the various issues and how we tried to address them.

It is possible that we are trying to kill too many birds with one single stone, and that we ended up with a mathematical monster that is just too complex to be understood and accepted. That's why we would be happy to explore alternate ideas with you.

One thing should be very clear to everyone: if we cannot find a system that is satisfying to both all M44 players and us, we will pull it out. Likewise, if the Skill system becomes an obsession, we will pull it out.

The main reason why we kept an ELO system was that it was very successful with Ticket to Ride Online. But may-be a bit too successful! Some Ticket to Ride Online players are so obsessed by their ELO ranking that they play only with the best players, behave in a rude manner with others, etc. We would rather favor a more casual, honor-based style of playing for Memoir '44 Online, which in our opinion is more consistent with the game. That's why in our minds, the Officer Ranks and Achievements are a better representation of a player's experience.

At the same time, we are aware of the demand from several competitive players. So we look forward to your ideas!
