Frequently Asked QuestionsHow do I become rated? Simply post, to this thread, the highest level of victory that you ever attained, (Chieftain, Warlord, Prince, King, Emperor, or Deity), in a "single player" game of Call to Power. That's it! You'll see your name appear on the above list within a week.
How do the ratings change? See the below CTP Ratings Links section for an in depth discussion.
On whose turn should the Power Graph be reported? It doesn't matter because the Power Graph remains the same during the cycle of the turn. However, we recommend that the 1st player (blue) always report the Power Graph results.

TENPL639_AM Report Legend:
NAT.TR - Nation and Territory of Primary Residence.
PBEM RATING - Starts with an initial value depending upon the highest CtP AI level ever honestly defeated: Chieftain=14; Warlord=16; Prince=17; King=18; Emperor=19; Deity=21. This rating changes by winning or losing to other rated players, (at the *9 turn mark every ten turns), while playing "rated" PBEM games. See the CtP Multiplayer topic "PBEM Ladders" for details on how this rating change is calculated.
TEN619_AM Report Concepts:
Win/Loss - A Win counts by having a "higher" Power Graph rating at the ten turn mark during a "rated" game. For example, in a five player game, at the ten turn mark, each player will receive four results - 4 wins and 0 losses, or 3 wins and 1 loss, etc.
Delinquency - 24 or more hours late counts as a delinquency. Each delinquency deducts -0.1 ratings points from player's rating.
Inactivity Adjustment - Players will lose 5/100ths of a ratings point (-0.05) for each month they go without a ratings adjustment, (i.e. remain inactive in the ratings for an entire month).
If, in a rated game, a player:
b) changes status from "rated" to "unrated";
c) gets annihilated; or
d) gets "next turned" for three turns in a row,
then every remaining player in that game "DEFEATS" THAT PLAYER THREE TIMES (as measured by the normal ten turn phase defeat).
For example, in a 5 player game, the first person who gets "eliminated from the ratings in that game" would be "defeated" 12 times (as measured by the normal power graph 10 turn defeat), (3 multiplied by 4 remaining players.) This equates to an average decrease in ratings of about 2 to 3 points for the eliminated player. The second player eliminated would be defeated 9 times (3 multiplied by 3 remaining players), ... etc.
In the case of resignation or three consecutive "next turns", then that resigned player's civilization will be "next turned" until a replacement player, (either rated or unrated), takes over that civilization's control.
Alien Life Victory Rule
If a player wins by completing the Alien Project, then that player defeats every remaining player three times.

*** NOTICE TO ALL GAME STARTERS IN RATED GAMES ***

Also, a reminder that all APPLICATIONS FOR NEW RATED GAMES need to be posted here with:

2. Player list (in turn order) of all players' APOLYTON HANDLES (no nick names please). Place players that wish to be "unrated" in parentheses;

I'm glad to see that I am no longer on the very bottom.
I'm not dead last anymore! woohoo!
Arthur and Yeti, congratulations. Well done.
I knew I should not have taken over from Aaginor. It costed me dearly and another bad ranking coming up soon (thanks to myself). At the other hand... I'm having fun and Aaginor did lay a good foundation that I am sure will pay off in the future . I will "coming at you" all.
By the way, notice the positions of the Dutch (Ned). Is this a conincidence or did someone orchestrate it? quinns?
quinns, thanks for the work you have done again.
[This message has been edited by Franses (edited February 18, 2001).]
Thanks Franses! It's always a pleasure to hear some good words! It isn't much trouble, really, but it still takes me some time each week.
Regarding the groupings by country... That's just how they fell! The USA got grouped together also. Just coincidance.... no orchestration on my part.
Are the data in
"TEN619_AM --- *9th Turn Game Results for Apolyton Call to Power PBEM."
Yes. The TEN619_AM report should be accurate.
You're probably refering to AAGINOR's series of losses. I posted a warning a week ago, stating that this would happen. Aaginor was "eliminated" from 4 games because he resigned them all. That's a major decrease for him (about 40 losses!) which equated to a decrease in ratings from about 19 to 15 for him.
Bear in mind that a player's rating attempts to reflect not only their playing "ability" but also their "reliability" as far as not quitting a game once agreed upon. Aaginor got hit real hard for at first agreeing to play in 4 "rated" games, and then choosing to resign from them all.
(I'm sure this is going to spawn a whole pile of comments and questions regarding the "elimination" rule. That's okay... let's hear it!)
[This message has been edited by quinns (edited February 19, 2001).]
Does that mean I'm the 2nd most reliable player???
Yep - you are going to be the second, that leaves Lung Deathmatch (the 1st was the rebellion portugeese)
Special offer - just for you.
The welsh has to wait until it will be their turn.
And now serious
Giant Bird, turn 29:
1. Darth Viper (replaces Aaginor)
6. (King Thor).
Stavros and King Thor are not rated in this game.
Welcome Phoenixcager! You're on the players pending list. You'll be added to the rankings this Sunday with a rating of 17.000 (Prince).
I'd like to be rated also in youngbloods, I defeated AI as Emperor.
Welcome, also, BERXPERT! You will be added with a rating of 19 = Emperor. As far as the game "Youngbloods" goes, the game starter must submit a list to this thread with all agreed upon rated players. (See above requirements for starting a new rated game.)
[This message has been edited by quinns (edited February 22, 2001).]
I play in Fly High 2 and Conquer!!
Please rate me.
I beat AI at Emperor level. (hm..its gonna be hard to maintain that level)
I'm on to it already quinns. I have already posted the game name and everyone involved. So far everyone in the Youngbloods game wants to be rated. The only person I have not confirmed this with is Blackice. I sent him an email to find out before I posted this. If he does not wish to be rated, I will post here before our 9th turn.
[This message has been edited by 420 (edited February 22, 2001).]
Rating is good count me in.
Right 420. I forget that you already posted, and are good-to-go for ratings with everyone in Youngbloods. Good Luck! May the best man or woman win!!
Finally Bilhq! We've been asking for your rating for about 2 months now. Welcome! You'll be added on Sunday with a rating of 19 = Emperor.
Fixed Game Turn 49 Power Graph Ranking:
Welcome Nuke Boy! You've been added to the list.
** Ratings Updated **
I have not yet been rated. The highest level I've won in CTP is Emporer. I'm sure playing against human oponents is a lot different than playing the AI.
Kingdom of Singapore (KOS) --- Old International Abbreviation.
Actually, the ISO abbreviation for Singapore is SGP. There are other errors in the country code listing for World Tennis Ratings. I plan to correct the www.worldtennisratings.com site in the future now that I have the latest list of correct country codes from the International Standards Organization (ISO).
Thanks for pointing this out.

Whew! Nice additions Keygen. Man, this rating system is going great guns! I'll add the above games and players by this Sunday.
A couple more convenient things to have about the players, are their current Nation and Territory (state, province, etc.) of Residence, and Gender (if possible), so I don't have to hunt for their Profile. (For example, it took me awhile to finally find out that Klair resides in France! ... She rarely posts here, so I had to search, somewhat, to find her Profile.)
[This message has been edited by quinns (edited March 03, 2001).]
I'm in the top 25 and I haven't played yet!
I haven't notice Nuke Boy that you where already in the ratings. That was fast .
