recently finished games not ordered in time

recently finished games not ordered in time

Operating System: windows
Browser: FireFox
Scripts/third party programs used: bob


recently finished games not ordered in time:
when i look at my games that have ended in the recently finished games section, i always like to look at the top games to see if something changed.
i look today and for sure i know i had less games then when i looked last yesterday. But i scroll down and there i see 2 multiplayer games that have ended later then the top games...
now i can see at least 3 explainations.
they are ordered at the time i either won, or was kicked out of the game for losing.
randomish order or coinciding with the admin changes
bug

just wondering

solution:

I'm fairly certain they are ordered by game #
12:39:59 AM rdsrds2120: sorry, I had a lot of lasagna tonight
12:40:06 AM rdsrds2120: I'm pretty out of it. CRAAZZYYY NIGHT

It makes sense to me that they appear in the order that the games ended, win or lose for you. That way, there is a list which the system can purge in order when it archives the games.

Games are ordered by some criteria by the SQL Server. I just don't know what that criteria is.

Perhaps the ordering is also affected by when a game moved from your Eliminated tab to your Recently Finished tab.

Games are order by the start time of the final round. Not who won and when it was won. Not by a game number either.

that would be nice, but it still is not true. just see the 2 above mentioned games.
the last ended was below the previous ended AND it started AFTER the other game had endede, so that does not fly.

Seb, look at what he said though, the start time of the final ROUND.

From game 9654550: 2011-08-29 14:29:59 - Incrementing game to round 8
From game 9577994: 2011-08-29 09:34:54 - Incrementing game to round 10

The second game will appear lower in the list, as the final round started before the first game you listed.

You have to wonder why that sorting order is chosen, though. It doesn't immediately strike me as useful to the player or to the system as a whole.
