RAW lessened in 40-50% games

Post by dustin » Fri Sep 19, 2008 9:42 pm

Now in effect: games with a high continent % give out less RAW to the winners.

50% get knocked down the most.
15% and below games have no RAW penalty.

Please let me know what you think.

i agree; i like it, considering 50% games are finished in the blink of an eye, it seems like a natural, common-sense idea; it may help us Classic players at 0% bonus a lil bit, that is for sure............

Well having just done a quick bit of research most 50% games are twice as fast as a 15% game. From what it looks like a 50% game is getting roughly 40% less RAW than a 15%. This means that effectually LUX now only has 5 10 and 15% bonuses since there is no advantage at all in playing the higher RAW games.

Its a good move, its taken the advantage from Bio which can only be good but you might as well have just removed the top bonus scores.

There has been an interesting result of this and I do not know if it occurred before or has just been created by the drop in income. Some 40% bio games have a negative net raw increase. Hypothetically, if all games were like this then it would mean that if a group of average players all played together all the time all their raw would drop below 500 every week. Or does this only happen when a player with relative high raw loses? Is it more common in 50% bio games?

anyway here is an example, I have seen a few now.

Just making an observation, and overall I think this is working quite well. It is good to see the Roman Empire ghetto doing so well.

I think the Roman crowd is more motivated to join the chase now that the playing field has been somewhat leveled.

I notice there are more Romans with big scores even though we havent been affected directly by the raw change.
I wouldn't be surprised to soon see more romans finish the weeks with scores above 1300.

Can we make Roman 23 s, 40%? And some countries missing? And maybe include the other continents as well? That would be cool, thanks.

I agree with djdee here.
I can't seem to find any justification as to the small raw handouts, IF any these past few days.
I play in Grim's room alot with is 15% and the Rome room plus my host at 10% yet the raw is not coming. I've gained 1.5% in the win percentage section and gained about 29 raw in my last 9 game wins.

Crim,

Dustin recently posted in a different thread about a bug in the way RAW was being distributed, so I think the biggest problem is solved.

Im not a RAW expert by any standard, however, I notice most of those games you linked were 2 or 3 human games. Those almost never give RAW if you are ranked higher than the other one or 2 humans playing.
in fact, if you get up to the 1000 + range, its hard to gain much RAW for winning a full human game, unless those humans are ranked high also.

ah, if only I had more understanding of this strangely foreign system. Thanks for the enlightenment sir. It does become tough though when you come in 4th in a FH and lose 85 raw and then win only 28 after like 7 more wins:P
