facts about us

#Season 14

Our Diplomacy league is the most active in North America. We average more than two league games per month in addition to Tournament play. We score all of our games using the Sum of Squares scoring system, and each player's best three scores count toward the season standings. We are known for our fierce competition, strong traditions, upstanding character and trustworthiness, and the propensity for Turkey to open to Armenia.

This is really cool stuff. We can use this info as if its a handicap to come up with an "adjusted score" for each player which takes into account the "Weasels country difficulty" score. Second order would then be to try and account for quality of competition.

is it possible to get this is in spreadsheet form if we wanted to play around with the numbers?

Probably. What do you want, two sheets? One for powers, one for players? And I assume you'd want the sheet to contain all the metrics I've shared? Average centers, average score, board tops and elimination frequency?

Shall I limit it to players who have played in a certain number of games?

:D

This is beginning to remind me of a comment from somebody here (hmmm) about a different nationality somebody who created a website (hmmm) and a ranking system for that website that made that individual the number one player in the world. :-*

The biggest spin in the world is statistics. 8)
