Can someone explain the score system?

Postby TrumpSG » Tue Jun 12, 2012 2:46 pm

Why do some of my games have negative scores although I won or even have flawless victories? Does it count the turns taken,amount of guys you have left or what??

If you mean in the Match History list, then don't worry about it - it's normal, if somewhat confusing - whether the score is displayed as positive or negative is dependant on both whether you get a Win or a Loss, and whether you're Player 1 or Player 2, like so:

If Player 1, and Win, the score shown will be positive.
If Player 1, and Loss, the score shown will be negative.

If Player 2, and Win, the score shown will be negative.
If Player 2, and Loss, the score shown will be positive.

So, in the case of games 540475, and 539107, you won, and were player 2, so the score shows as negative, but in the cases of games 539101, and 53883, you won, and were player 1, so the score shows as positive.
And, in the cases of games 539114, and 442678, you lost, and were player 1, so the score shows as negative, but in the cases of games 484235, and 443798, you lost, and were player 2, so the score shows as positive.

Now, just so you're aware, but to make matters even more complicated, it should be noted that these scores, and the score your shown at the end of the match in the results dialog, are not what contributes to your score as it is shown in the ranking tables! That score is your ELO score, which is related to your match score, but is computed according to the ELO score of the two players in the match at the time the match is completed!
