Ranking - Top American Players Mon, 03 April 2006 20:04
In honor of thekid's ascension to the coveted #1 slot, I thought I'd do a post honoring the top American players. Listed are all the USA players in the top 100:


-1- 1 thekid
-2- 22 The Tar Baby
-3- 25 SKMorefield
-4- 45 tprail
-5- 47 msande75
-6- 55 psteinx
-7- 65 Wildfire
-8- 78 Kimber
-9- 82 Apix
-10- 89 Onyx Puffin


So, 10% of the top 100 are from the good ole' USA! If there is anyone else let me know. I just checked the ones I didn't recognize but I might have missed some. I did a post awhile back on BGG trying to encourage some American players to play. Not sure if it has worked or will work, but I do think this trend is a good thing.

that cries for a reaction:
the german players in the top 20:

4- Womble
6- white train
10- Marcelinho
11- Erps
12- BR6/8II (i dont know really)
15- Rudi 69
16- airbus
18- Muddaihrsohn
19- Schnellzug
20- An -Team

the small country with round about 80 Million people has 10 players in the top 20 (50 %). And the USA with about 240 Million has one?
hmm.....Smile

Holland is really good, because there have 2 players in the top 10 (in the top 20 are not more):

5- Bassie
9- youki

Really good for such a small country

At the moment there seems to be only 4 Finns in top-100:
Anu (3.), Make72 (62.), Rogue (71.) and myself (50.)...

It's not much compared to Germany, but at least we beat our dear neighbours Very Happy

Edit: Current rankings added.

Hi airbus,

I did this post in the spirit of the fact that it is common knowledge that Americans typically aren't very high ranked in this game, so to celebrate our measly 10% is not in any way to compare with 10 Germans in the top 20, of course! Smile

I don't know why, but board gaming just isn't as popular here... yet.

However, these are exactly the kind of replies I wanted. Elric, I smell Nations Cup 2 also!! Very Happy Very Happy


Best,
SKM

Hi,

Interesting statistical misinterpretation...

The question is not, how many germans or americans are living on this earth, the question is, how is the ratio between players of one nation overall and players in the top ten.

I think in this case we will see, that maybe 70% of all ttr players are german but ONLY 50% of all top 20/100 players are german. Not good! 4 Finns in top 100 is better, because i doubt there are more than 4% of all players Finns!

Obviously we will see that small countries have a better ratio of top players to overall players than big countries, imho in small countries more people who CARES about such things like boardgames AND are DECENT players will play such a game. In germany we have "the masses" Smile

Of course this is not valid for countries as USA, netherlands or france. SHAME on YOU for so few top players! Twisted Evil

Ah, NC2 is coming... love it.

P.S. I hope bassie will open a new thread for NC2 soon. We have a lot of things to discuss and i don't want to open a thread for this! It's bassie's "child"!!

bye, erps

Sorry to write it in german, but my english isnt good enough

Erps:
Es ist doch klar, das in Ländern in denen Gesellschaftspiele weniger verbreitet sind, diejenigen die dieses Spiel dann auch noch online spielen sehr interessiert und engagiert sind. Daher werden solche Länder immer prozentual mehr gute Spieler haben, als Länder in denen der Pool der Spiel groß ist, der Zugang kostengünstig und folglich viele Massen sich anmelden aber nur wenige engagiert und damit "gut" spielen. Nimm zu Beispiel yaron, er ist der einzige israelische Spieler (denke ich), den ich kenne und er ist in den Top 100 (glaub ich).

Wenn ich die Anzahl der Top Spieler in Beziehung zu den Menschen des Landes setze ist es klar das Deutschland weit vor den USA liegt, weil einfach viel mehr Spieler vorhanden sind. Dass man damit nicht ausdrücken kann, dass die besseren Spieler aus Deutschland kommen ist doch klar. Warum sollte ein Land besser (intelligenter) Spieler haben als irgendein anderes Land? Intelligenz ist doch gleichmäßig verteilt. Ich wollte ja auch nur mal die Amis etwas ärgern.

mhmmm well, I am french, but if the german team wanna pay me more than what the french does, I can play with german, or with a multinational team. It all depends of which team pays me the more. ^^


PS : Or maybe if you can find me a nice, cute, intelligent and young girl to marry with, I can also play with your nation without any payment Rolling Eyes

Hola compadre Kotay Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

Mis pensamientos totallemente amigo!!! Nos entendemos perfectemento.

I am also willing to outlaw through the second version of NC and offer my mercenaric abilities to the highest bidding badass teamcaptain. Of course payment by means of charming and well curved mujeres is accepted just as happily. There seems to be no shortage of these amazones here, so they had better be good Shocked Very Happy Shocked .

oh oh oh, erps Twisted Evil Twisted Evil Twisted Evil
We were always told that being beautiful is much more important than being intelligent ...
... because men prefer looking to thinking Laughing

therefore we just hide our true intelligence ...

Well, I don't qualify because of young, but there will be others - don't give up, Kotay Laughing

And why do I sense this might go the way the World Cup soccer goes.

We all know the US chances are like slim or none in the World Cup. So I guess they have to try other ways.

And where are the Canadians ? Darn them
And no DoW players either? They must be at work making new games...Yeah, that must be it. Smile
