Similar Team Colors

This can be a real problem sometimes! :) (See attached screenshot.) My personal suggestion would be to pick a primary and a secondary team color for your team. You always play with your primary color, unless the hue is too close to the hue of the primary color of your opponent. In that case, one of ...

[Android] - Frozen Synapse showing as "not compatible"

Hey, My friend has a Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 that's supposed to be able to run FS. (1 GHz RAM, 1024x600 px, Android 4.1, 7 inch) But the Google Play store indicates FS is not compatible with his device so he's not able to download it. Does anyone have experience with this, or any idea how to fix th...

Re: THE MODE 7 HOTLINE

I understand this matters to people and I will look into it, but it's my prime concern that Global Ranking is working properly and is displayed properly, rather than any new ELO gui elements are introduced. I'm *not* saying that this doesn't matter, I'm telling you where our emphasis will be. Ok. I...

Re: THE MODE 7 HOTLINE

I'm gonna go straight against you (and it's great to see I'm not alone on this one) and say that seeing change in rank after a match is way more important then getting Elo to work properly. You are losing players at this very moment . Give information first, make Elo perfect later. By giving all of ...

Re: THE MODE 7 HOTLINE

Thanks - good post, although perhaps a little bit minor, as I don't think this is going to destroy the game, but I'll let you off :D - we'll definitely look into that one. I think we'll need a bit of time to make sure ELO has "settled in" before changes like that happen, but I'll raise this one. Li...

Re: 2 weeks score list change?

I got 39 wins and 1 loss, but don't think it has done anything much for my Elo.

That does seem odd?

(Once again, by a lack of clear information I don't know for sure what it did do to my Elo.)

Re: THE MODE 7 HOTLINE

Great thread, love the rules as well! (topics can get messy sometimes) So here's my first emergency call-in: I've noticed my own interest in playing has dropped since the new ranking system was implemented. The reason for this is that I have no idea how any individual game has or will influence my r...

Re: ELO implementation, half baked?

Basically, I respect your analysis of scoring but please don't underestimate the power of common sense. Please don't turn FS from a player's game into an elitist's game. Good point. Here we discuss the mechanics of the game to eventually make some features emerge, then it's up to the developer to i...

Re: ELO implementation, half baked?

Something I just wanna throw in here: I'm fine with all the statistics and "it makes sense if you think about it this way"-stuff, but I think you should keep in mind that the average player might not be well represented by the people in this thread. I'm all for a fairer scoring system but we should ...

Re: ELO implementation, half baked?

Elo (not ELO) is a rating system created by Arpad Elo to measure and predict the relative strength of players in a match in two-player games. It starts by attributing each player in a match a relative probability to win according to that player's past performance (indexed by their respective Elo ra...

Re: ELO implementation, half baked?

Ok let me get this straight: Scores of all past games are recalculated with the new ELO formula? (Honostly, your blogpost didn't provide an abundance of information on what is happening and some of us mere mortals have never heard of ELO before in our lives, so not all of this discussion is evident ...

Re: ELO implementation, half baked?

Before deciding on a score-reset, please make sure the new scoring implementation is robust and tested thoroughly. That's all I'm asking for really. I'd be sad to see my score go since I have been working on it for months and am finally seeing some results getting higher on the list. Also it would b...

Inactive games not disappearing

Hey guys, Games where my opponent doesn't play anymore don't disappear from my active games list. I read somewhere on this forum that after two weeks, you would automatically win inactive games. (Which sounds fair since they're basically hogging points I could've won.) Anywho, I have quite a few old...
