Re: Early Middle Ages recruitment is now open . . .

Happy for the opportunity. Prefer 1200 points, armies to follow.

Re: The Rally Point (discussion, questions and some highbrow philosophising)

I am going to announce the definite plans for Season 9 and the provisional plans for Season 10 early next week once I have moved all the new stats out of the "stickies". Whatever I do is not going to please everyone, but the tournament does have to keep evolving to maintain its freshness and presen...

Re: End of Season 8 round-up . . .

Thanks again to Pete who did his usual great job despite the problems he mentioned in his end of season report. In many respects I think this was our best season because there was a record number of players and many exciting and close races in the divisions. In addition, a player (dkalenda) who had ...

Re: The Rally Point (discussion, questions and some highbrow philosophising)

I think our current system of picking armies works well and handicaps the better players (including myself) from getting the best armies. This makes for more competitive play and a more enjoyable season.

Re: Themed Event details for Season 9 . . .

Even though I won this year's theme with horse armies, I'm happy to see infantry armies in the Theme. I hope never to have to play with the Avars again. :D

Re: dkalenda has been expelled from the tournament for multiple re-loading of turns during his matches . . .

The review identified a number of users whose activity was suspect. We found that of the 5 of them. The thing that surprised us, was when we looked in to banning them, 4 had already been banned, one of which was dkalenda, the other 3 in July. So the system was actually working, but the banning was ...

Indeed though the words were written by Voltaire and put into the mouth of his heroine so I will maintain he deserves the credit 😉 On a serious note I have had to forfeit my last round of matches in the 20th Anniversary tournament (where I was in a personal best position after the second round) bec...

Re: dkalenda has been expelled from the tournament for multiple re-loading of turns during his matches . . .

There is no adjudication by yourself Pete. Regardless of the reason for a download it gives that player an advantage which the game was not designed with the intention of. It would be like a player of a miniatures game redoing a move or turn. It is strictly forbidden unless your opponent says it is...

Re: dkalenda has been expelled from the tournament for multiple re-loading of turns during his matches . . .

It actually was three consecutive attacks. The fourth attack did not cause any checks. Doing the math of 6% x 6% X*8% you get the probability of about 1 in 3500. However I don’t think you took into account all three double drops were in range of a general in combat which gives the additional +1 to a...

Re: dkalenda has been expelled from the tournament for multiple re-loading of turns during his matches . . .

RNG is fine. There aren’t far too high extreme probabilities. Let’s not conflate issues. You sound like you know the exact probabilites. So I will ask you the same question, what are the odds of three consecutive double drops? In two cases the attacks were even and in one case my warband with gener...

Re: dkalenda has been expelled from the tournament for multiple re-loading of turns during his matches . . .

We did need a system we can trust as very unlikely combat sequences can occur without cheating. In the ongoing Slitherine tournament this past week I was playing Triarii who can attest to this. I made four warband attacks against other warbands or medium infantry. In three consecutive attacks all in...

Re: dkalenda has been expelled from the tournament for multiple re-loading of turns during his matches . . .

But that's my point, if a reasonable number of experienced players all start to throw their hands in the air to say that something is amiss, then most likely something is amiss. Just saying "nothing is wrong" is just as wrong as saying that the CODE in the algorithm is wrong. But the pertinent fact...

Re: dkalenda has been expelled from the tournament for multiple re-loading of turns during his matches . . .

How long ago were the games with 225 and 99 reloads? Was it something that just happened this tournament or was it something that's been going on since a while back? Based on what Pete has said in two different postings earlier in this thread, there were occurences all this season of 225, 99, 18 an...

Re: dkalenda has been expelled from the tournament for multiple re-loading of turns during his matches . . .

I believe dkalenda only cheated when he needed it so he mainly cheated against the top players and not every turn and not every game. After all, I am sure he had runs of good luck without cheating. He cheated only when he had bad luck or needed to manipulate a sequence of events involving a charge o...
