- May 19, 2008Game 6 of 13 April 2008:

FelixK gamely pointed out that I'd forgotten that he ended up as

junk, so 0 pts rather than 1 pt. So, revised corrected result and

table:

AndrewM......Won, Survived,Flag planted...6 pts

StaniaM......Won, Survived, MVP...........6 pts

JosepA.......Won, Survived................5 pts

BobR.........Lost, Survived...............1 pt

StuartF......Lost, Survived...............1 pt

FelixK.......Lost, Junked by board-laser..0 pt

So the updated league table looks as below: AndrewM re-regains

topspot from StuartF; JosepA regains third spot from BobR. StaniaM

enters the league in 4th place ... thus demonstrating that the

formula allows a new player to shoot up into contention, but probably

not to take topspot in one go.

The league formula makes it nicely volatile. E.g if AllanM, lying

16th, played and scored 6 points as Stania just did, his rating would

go up from 0.333 to 2.333, raising him to 10th, perhaps 8th if some

others lost and slipped down; do it a second time, and he'd rise to

3.250 and probably 3rd spot ...

For those who are interested in such things, the formula is:

cumulated points divided by games played+1. If a tie, league-position

goes to the most recent having a result.

MVP is fairly new. Most Valuable Player. It is an extra point for the

player who inflicts most damage on the opposition, minus damage

inflicted on friendlies.
