john9blue wrote:YF explained it well. There is an advantage for larger games, but only slightly. 7 points/8 people is greater than 1 point/2 people. I considered giving the winner an extra point, but I had already sent out the games and decided not to change the rules. But the fact that the game sizes are random, and the fact that the tournament will rarely hinge on a single game, makes it a lot more fair. I just go to our streaky friend random.org and generate random integers ranged 2-8, then randomly order the ints 1-27 to fill the slots.

Around round 6 or so I'll check to see if anyone has consistently gotten small games. Then I may have to bend the "randomness" to their advantage a bit. ;)



Thank you for the response (you also YF) =D>

Makes sense to me.

New games are out, rankings are updated. Hopefully we're going to weed out the deadbeaters after this round (I certainly don't like having to remake all those games)... :lol:

Game 5929798 Complete.

I won by objective- jameschamp15 deadbeated, and both OliverFA and jgazaille were still alive and kicking at the end, so I admit I'm not actually sure how many eliminations this counts as. (I vote for 3 but I'll be one of the first to admit I have a bias :lol: )

New games are coming out soon...

Also, this is the first elimination round. Random.org rolled a 9, so the lowest 9 players on the rankings list are eliminated. Sorry guys...
