Sorry I cant figure it out.

The whole dots and colors system is a way of giving you an indication of the fairness of the player you are playing. It is not a perfect system.

You can find the reason for it in the game manual here:

About Honor and Skill
Honor is a "good behavior" indicator. You start with 3 dots: •••. As you play and finish your Battles, you slowly earn more Honor, up to a maximum of 5 dots: •••••. If you voluntarily quit a Battle in the middle of it, you will lose Honor. Note that you lose Honor much faster than you gain it. We want to encourage fair-play: even if you are losing a battle, finish it; this is a matter of fair play and respect for your opponent! It is the expected behavior in Memoir '44 and repeat offenders will soon find it difficult to find others willing to play against them.

One thing I did note on both my Online Career page and yours is that there are (6) black dots at the honor indicator. Can't explain that???

THX. I did not see the manual, thanks for pointing it out. It didnt mention the color difference, is that just a function of lower dots?

My guess is that RED indicates stop and GREEN indicates go.

RED - maybe don't play this dude (1 dot)
ORANGE -- Proceed with caution (2 dot)
BLACK - Cool guy just starting out, but if he has a lot of games, hmmmm? (3 dot)
BLUE - more reputable player (4dot)
GREEN - Go for it if he asks to play (5dot)

Some players have bad connections with their internet/computer. Not always their own fault.They will get bad ratings too but still like to play. So just ask the player if you are curious why he has this rating.

Agree with Jeronimon, I think Clexton27 was correct when he said in his first post that it is not a perfect system. Someone with a bad internet connection may get painted as a "bad dude" when in reality it was not something within their control.

That could well be the reason. But one may not want to start a game when his opponent either intentionally dumps out of a game or loses connection and then you have to finish against the bot.

I think my most memorable game was where I was invited to a game. Five minutes in and my opponent states this game is taking longer than he thought and types "bye" and he is gone. What??? Rolling Eyes

Good morning,
I have just a precision to give for the points : when you play a game to the end, you win 1 point. When you quit a game, you lose 5 points.
Therefore, you have :
RED: between 0 and 19 points;
BROWN : between 20 and 39 points;
BLACK : between 40 and 59 points;
BLUE : between 60 and 79 points;
GREEN : between 80 and 100 points.
You can't have more than 100 points, and you begin at 50 points.
Cordially,
BagrationM
