Re: Rankings calculation update (Sept 2019)

I agree with ICE. The mere fact that I am stuck down in the 4200 area with zero hope of climbing out of that with the rate that higher ranked players disdain the lower class. I can sit there for an hour and try to get a game. Declare a winner (CAPT) and move everyone to the same score. Then give 2nd...

Re: Rankings calculation update (Sept 2019)

Hey Aidan, This is King again. Played another 10 games and came in 2nd on 5. Still lost between 1 and 7 points for 2nd place with player who rank 2000 points above me. What gives. No more points for playing and 2nd gets hammered also. I see that at 158th place, I have 200 points to go before getting...

Re: Playing for Second Place

Aidan,
There may not be points for 2nd place but today I played (poorly) came in 4th 3 times and lost 1 point each time. Last game I came in 2nd and lost 2 points. What is the deal there??

scoring points for playing

Hey Aidan,
It says right at the bottom of the game that the scoring is +1 for playing and +2 for coming in place. I have lost (come in 2nd against higher ranked players) and continue to lose l or 2 points. What gives. The only way to get points is to win?

Re: Upgrading to 64 bit

I have the download but yet to install, Catalina 64bit MacOS. Do you have a firm date and will the data carry over? I will hold off on the install until there is an answer but I have other programs to worry about.

Re: Scoring, scores and games

Now I am confused. Yesterday I came in 2nd against opponents that were 2000 points better than me and lost a point. Today I came in last against opponents that were somewhat better and still lost a point. Where is the 2+ points that are promised at the bottom just for competing? If I don't win, I ge...

I found a back door answer to quitting hearts without it crashing my iMac. I go to "forums" and exit out of Safari. Same problem today with scoring.

Re: Rankings calculation update (Sept 2019)

Rankings are not as advertised. First, you do not get +2pts. for playing. I have now come in 2nd X 5games and 3rd X 1. This last against Django and Yoda. I lost points in all 6 games against higher ranked players above and below me. I did lose 1 pt. each time which is not a lot but 2nd should not be...

Re: Rankings calculation update (Sept 2019)

Hi Aiden, something is amiss I fear with the scoring. I have played 5 games and come in 2nd each time and lost a point each game. I have looked at your version of the calculation and find it cumbersome. Why deduct points from those of us who work overseas without internet or for whatever reason choo...

Re: Scoring

I disagree with the frequency being a counter toward standing. I have to go without WiFi for often 3 months. I like to play but I hate to lose a bunch of points for being gone. I really dislike the current system of scoring since it is hard for us 4000's to get a game since the scoring is very punit...

Queen5 reduced score to 1400!!!!

Hey Aiden, I am sorry that I have not played for a 6 month period but to reduce me back to 0 games and 1400 points is not fair. My husband King 101 bogarts computer when we have the time but I just played (and won) my first game in months and then when I updated I found that I was reduced and had on...

Re: Scoring, scores and games

Aiden, this really needs attention. There can be 20 players but no one above 4000 plays with anybody with 3800 or less (at least not often).

Re: Points for winning

http://www.grassgames.com/network/calc/index.html Thanks for the hyperlink. I think I know how the system is supposed to work, and I am saying that it has the unintended consequence of supporting a broken system, very much like socialism, the elite and those at the bottom. The elite cannot interact ...

Scoring, scores and games

Most of these games, I feel, are played for relaxation and time on the computer when we are not working. Relationships form, some on the basis of chat and others on the way of play and similarity of culture. There are "dirty" ways that are not against the rules and the common decency of chat is ofte...

Points for winning

King 101 here. I won two games today on network games. (today is 1/26/2018). I received 1 point for each win which now puts me at 2983. I lost 300 points when I was overseas for 3 months. Can you explain the points system. ?? I understood that you received 1 pt just for playing, but 1 point for winn...

scoring

Hi Aidan,
I seem to have a recurring problem. i leave to go overseas for two months and lose over 100-200 points. No available access to stay current. Is there a way to get a leave of abscence twice a year> I had just cracked 3100 and am now back to 2900.

scoring

I am noting that my wife is #180 (queen5) and that 181 is destinee20. Destinee20 has exactly 50% of the number of wins and scores of Queen5. What gives?

Queen5 is 22+%. Destinee20 has 10% and yet they are 180 and 181. Your scoring is a tad screwed up. :ugeek:

scoring by computer

I play the avatars frequently. I gave Scott the qs and 6 hearts and he got 3 points on the score and won.
This has also happened infrequently in a real game. Aidan, can you check the program for scoring errors?
