His/her nation might not survive for too long smile

Congrats to winners! I will update the rankings.

I will get the player list from the confirmed players on http://longturn.org/game/LT39/

I understand that Alex went idle at T3 and ptizoom took over. As a policy, I count the idler as loser if nation lost and replacement as winner if nation won. So, I count Alex as loser and Ptizoom keeps his score as is.

#3 Re: New Games » The follow up to LT40...? » 11.03.2018 17:14:09

I think tech leakage makes the game last longer by making players more equal. That means the turns will take longer, not shorter due to having a more competitive game.

I think the best way to make turns shorter is to limit each turn to X minutes. Player "terror" had coded such a setting (timeonserver) and we had tested it in a LTex game. http://forum.longturn.org/viewtopic.php?id=160 It worked but time spent chatting was also counted. If someone with coding skills can update that setting so that chat is enabled after allowed time is used, that would be nice.

For an easier solution, decreasing empire size limits would certainly decrease average number of cities and turns would take less time. Shrinking the map will also result in a similar result. If the map is large and empire size limit is low, that means many players should ally to be able to win which might be interesting.

Sorry about the delay. Maho is now delegated to Dim.

Sorry, I forgot to mention idler replacement chance. Glad you joined. You lost many turns but it ll still be a good experience for you. And for official rankings, since you replaced an idler, if you win you will be counted as winner and if you lose maho will be counted as the loser smile

Thanks Kryon for doing the rankings. This will greatly help people with playing and competing smile

I'll ask if there are saves left from the old games.

You are welcome wink

Looking forward to the saved games...

(edrim was replaced with elpollodiablo at T0 who lost. Since replacement was done at T0 elpollodiablo was counted as the loser and edrim was counted as not played)
(Few turns after game started, randesady was replaced with luke7658 who won so luke7658 was counted as the winner and randesady was counted as not played)

A bit late but here are the updated rankings after LT35:

Winners:
taulover
chill
nicemicro
paavo
evan
drew
sandain
cgalik
maho

Losers:
soon
el_perdedor
dvgo
wwqt
temmikael
eielmx
ankka8x
sigur
lord_p

Notes:
Counted maho as winner as I really think if a team wins all players deserve the win even if they died before game ended. It should not make a difference whether the player has 1 unit or city left alive or not.
Counted idlers as losers if they lose and count the replacement as winner if he wins (el_perdedor was counted as loser even though he was replaced by kull after idling for a while)

Rankings:

Players have to complete at least two games to be displayed in the ranking list.
Players who have not played in any of the last 10 games are not displayed, but their scores are stored in the database and will be displayed once they play a new game.

It is not easy for me to identify winners and losers from forum posts especially if I was not playing that game. Some players get replaced at T0, some are deleted, some are killed but their team wins, etc. I will try to do my best using the information in the following winning declarations.

LT41 started on Feb 9th. You should wait for signups to start for LT42. Sorry for that.

Marduk had started a nice ranking system for LT and I had continued that later http://longturn.org/ranking/ . However, after LT34 (just when wieder got the top spot from me) I did not have time to continue the ranking calculations smile The latest rankings after LT34 can be found here: http://forum.longturn.org/viewtopic.php?id=556  (I had sent it to akfaew in html format but he did not update the main ranking page, so main ranking page still shows me at the top smile )

I am willing to update the rankings if someone can prepare and share with me the list of winners, losers and survivors (if that status was allowed) of all LT games since LT34 (starting with LT35).

Also, I was creating animated maps of completed LT games (the last one was LT33). I am willing to create animated maps of the missing games if I am provided access to the saved games files of those games.

Previous animated maps I created and relevant forum posts:

Wait, you mean there has been no scoring whatsoever since LT34? I haven't been checking the lists lately, I saw that they are not really updated, but I thought someone is simply late with them and that they wil be updated sooner or later!

Yes, there has been no ranking update since LT34 because I did not have time to do it smile Therefore I assumed your ranking would become the main ranking.

However, I can update the rankings if someone sends me the list of winners, losers and survivors (if that status was allowed) of all LT games since LT34 (starting with LT35).

I think it was a good system but all alliance members earned equal points regardless of their in-game scores. The reason for this was that an ally member at the war front might have sacrificed himself to slow down enemy for the alliance while other allies developed their nation faster.

Your system that is based on in-game scores seem to be well thought and fair. There will be differences in points between alliance members but usually that difference is fair and deserved (but not always).

From the below quote I understand that games with alliances will not be counted? Why not? They can still be counted with the same formula. The ally members almost always have the top scores by the end of the game anyways. But, including those games with this system will cause extra competition/friction between ally members in terms of earning more in-game scores (e.g. friction about which alliance member will conquer which enemy cities?). This might make the alliance games more interesting smile

Corbeau wrote:

Conditions for LTL scoring
There will be one hard-fixed condition: no alliance victory in the game.

The reason for this is that I want this scoring to be a show of individual skill of running your nation and negotiating with your neighbours and potential friends and enemies. You will be competing against your friends, too, which isn't possible if alliance victory is enabled. This changes gameplay drastically and would make a huge difference regarding your goals.

update: installed 2.5.9 from https://sourceforge.net/projects/freeciv/files/ and city window resize now works!

#19 Re: LT41 » LT41 to start February 7th. Teamless, islands and more traditional » 28.01.2018 08:16:23

There are currently 15 players who signed up and only 3 has confirmed. I guess most players are busy with LT39 and LT40. I suggest we do not start until at least 20 players confirm.

#20 Re: LT41 » The pyramids as two separate small wonders? » 06.12.2017 20:05:50

I think it is a good idea but 80 shields is perhaps too low. How about 100?

#21 Re: LT39 » LT39 has started » 23.11.2017 13:19:53

Forgot to check forum for several days and missed the deadline to confirm sad cya next game then...

#22 Re: LT39 » Less defense? » 11.11.2017 09:56:20

Yes defense is very high in cities on hills with defensive buildings. But it gives weak nations a chance to survive longer and perhaps help their team win. If taking cities is easier, stronger nations would kill weaker nations faster and the outcome of the game will be more obvious and games will last shorter. Nevertheless I would not object if the defense bonus of the defensive buildings are reduced a bit. For example, city wall could give %75 bonus instead of %100 and so on.

#24 Re: LT39 » LT39 has been postponed few weeks » 20.10.2017 19:29:45

Lets wait until at least 30 players sign in

#25 Re: LT39 » City growth too fast? » 20.10.2017 19:28:14

I think city growth is normal. I suggest we keep it as is.
