    Frequently Asked Questions > >[/i]



    >* >[/i]





    >* >



    Q: How do I become
    rated? > >[/i]



    A: Itís easy.
    Just post, to the current ratings thread, the best SMAC AI level you have ever
    defeated. Thus, you will get an initial rating depending on it, here the values
    are: Citizen = 14, Specialist = 16, Talent = 17, Librarian = 18, Thinker = 19,
    Transcend = 21. > >[/b]



    >* >[/b]



    Q: How do we make a
    game rated? > >[/i]



    A: First, clarify
    whether the players in the game want to be rated. At least three players must
    agree to be rated, otherwise we canít rate the game. Then, post, to the
    current thread, gameís official name, and the players. Post
    playerís Apolyton nicknames ONLY. For example, entries like Chairman
    Yangestro or Prime Function Aki-Brian will not be accepted. Post the Apolyton
    login. Players that are unrated should appear in parentheses. > >[/b]



    >* >[/b]



    Q: When do you adjust
    the ratings? > >[/i]



    A: When a game enters
    MY. ***0, e.g. 2110 or 2350, someone should post AC scores of all the players
    to the thread. Then, depending on the scores, calculations are made, and I
    adjust the ratings. > >[/b]



    >* >[/b]



    Q: Where can I find
    more information on this? > >[/i]



    A: style='mso-spacerun:yes'>*Thereís a thread called
    ďLaddersĒ by Solver in the AC-Multiplaying forum. Find it, and read
    it for more information on foundation of the system. > >[/b]



    >* >[/b]



    Q: Have you done
    something like this before? > >[/i]



    A: Yes. This system
    has been first implemented within Call to Power, and at the moment itís
    very popular, as we have 40 rated players there. Also, MarkG posts the PBEM
    charts to the CtP front page, so the idea of doing this now isnít new. > >[/b]



    >* >[/b]



    Q: Who is doing all
    the stuff here? > >[/i]



    A: style='mso-spacerun:yes'>*Here, in SMAC, I (Solver) am the only to do
    that. I read the scores, calculate the new ratings and post them. However,
    Keygen provides me with lots of help here, and the first two rated games came
    because of his initiative.[/b] > >





    For more on the rating system, refer to the Ladders topic by Solver in the AC-Multiplaying forum. And, here are some of the fundmental rules. All the rules are in one of my posts at Ladders, but I will include the rules here as well over time.

    Initial ratings for the players: this depends on the highest SMAC/X AI level ever defeated by the player as follows: Citizen = 14, Specialist = 16, Talent - 17, Librarian = 18, Thinker = 19, Transcend = 21.

    Delinquency rule: If a player doesn't play his turn in 24 hours, he is delinquent, and gets a next-turn from the previous player (probably CMN), to send the turn to the next one. Each time a delinquency occurs, the player loses 0.1 (one tenth) rating points. If there's explanation present either on the forum or in my mailbox, no penalty is applied. Explanation include things like lost Internet connection, Windows problems, etc. As in CtP, I have no time to monitor all of the rated games, so please, when a player is delinquent either post the fact at the respective ratings thread, or email that to me. I Know this sounds terrible, but as experience shows, it ain't that hard .

    Elimination Rule:
    Idea by Quinns.
    If a player is:
    a) Eliminated
    b) Changes status in the game from rated to unrated
    c) Gets end-turned three times in a row with no explanation,
    then each remaining player defeats him 3 times.

    Transcend Rule:
    If a player completes the Ascent to Transcendence sequence, he defeats each remaining player three times.

    Special thanks go to MarkG, who was kind enough to post the first ten at the Apolyton SMAC front page.

                      Ok, AXT047 agrees to be rated. We as yet haven't reached a -0 year yet, so for now just note that I have beaten the AI on Transcend. I'll get the others over here.

                        Chowlett, someone has to post here the game with the players who will join in play order and the turn the game will start to get rated.

                        E.g.

                        New Addition

                        Game A (0)

                        Player A
                        Player B
                        Player C
                        etc...

                        It doesn't really matter whether you will use bold or underlined titles but this is the info you should post.

                        Also each player or one for all should post the highest level ever beaten the AI but I guess you already know that .

                            Thanks Chowlett. So, you will also need to post the socres here.
                            And, what re the highest AI levels defeated for all those players? I think Transcend, but not sure. Thanks!
                            Keygen, will compute new scores soon. You little Greek bastard.
