Hey all! Large Social Game ELOs have existed for a while, but now that we have this section, it makes sense to keep them in their own thread.

ELOs are a predictive measure of how far someone will go in a game, using past information on that player's performance. It is by no means a measurement of how good a player is, but rather how consistent they can make a fairly deep run into the game. Every new player is given a base value of 1200 for their first game. After every anonymous large social, everyone's scores are updated using this calculator. First-time players are given a k-value of 25, while all other players are given a k-value of 15.

A player who has played 2 or more games and most recently played within the past 3 games is marked as "Active". A player who has only played 1 game and that game was within the past 3 games is marked as "Provisional". Finally, a player who hasn't played in over 3 games is marked as "Inactive".

See the current scores!

that feeling when a sort of objective measure says you and your archnemesis aren't so different after all

as is shown by this and i assume known by everyone or most people i am indeed the user formally known as burning_earth. i went to excellent methods to hide this such as logging on with my old account for the first time in years and posting right next to a post by this one because "nobody will ever think i would do that!", being the same age and living in the same small place and making no attempt to hide it, joining a newbie mafia game breaking site rules despite hating mafia and having no interest in it (see, i've said several times that i'm a mature person now but i keep not actually showing that...with my actions. i've already apologized to zor but i should do so here publically to everyone in that game), etc etc. basically i lied a in bad ways but was still...really freakin' obvious which is the exact opposite of what i was or should have been trying to do. so this is kind of my public apology but as it is posted in the survivor elo thread...i would like to gloat a little bit that i'm above piggy. i don't remember all of hogwarts but i still remember you stan! you were a wonderful player in that game and have been in several game since, so elo is a little unfair to you here (i'm not even sure how it is that that's your number, given your third place in a 24 game should take you soaring above me), but some subdued bone in my body still takes satisfaction in my spot above you.

idk if this is a dramatic post when none is needed; if everyone knows already and was ignoring it and it's unnecessary. i always hate posting long and overdramatic things when they aren't at all useful. honestly if i've learned anything it's that i had three years ago (hoooooooooly shit that's fucking forever) and retain now a complete lack of knowledge of what is acceptable to post and where. so, sorry if this post was bad and lame or something idk...oh just stop talking vij. this post is already longer than it needs to be ("I'm B_E, sorry" posted somewhere other than here would have been a good start), which sure is an interesting change from last time i was here.

Aww that means I've technically played with you already :( I was looking forward to it later on down some track.
Well I guess doctor who didn't really count.

I do feel the the 'active' game count should possibly be increased since we're been doing staggered games though. (something about me wanting to remain on the active list for longer while playing less games)

yeah i remember lots about voldemort but don't remember anything about poor old adam. i guess that's the same with everyone else though.

ya medivac was like five months ago but people in it are going to be bumped from activity quite soon; odd especially given SoS and nexus being essentially simultanious and SoS being so small.

Yeah, that would make sense, the 3-game period was adopted when literally no games ran concurrently. I'm going to try bumping it up to 5.

For the moderators, it feels a bit sad that they don't get ELO points for their efforts. If they're called upon to moderate numerous games in arow, they may be labeled inactive.

I don't mind it - moderating requires a completely different set of skills from playing, so it would be weird to put them together.

i think he/she means you should get a free pass for not being in games you moderated and those shouldn't count as games you missed for ELO.

I think it should probably be done on an annual basis.

Anyone who played a game in the past year should be active.

Staggered Start will come back, there are just a few extenuating circumstances that are pausing it right now.

Tbf staggered start at this point is likely going to be supply-constrained, not demand constrained. Especially with CC taking a break from modding.

Basically more people probably need to mod shit 'cause we're short on games.

Also it's probably not just a temporary break anymore, at least as far as Survivor goes
