    Frequently Asked Questions

    How 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, along with the Nation and Territory that you presently reside. 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).
    -----------------
    Elimination Rule

    If, in a rated game, a player:
    a) resigns;
    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.
    -----------------
    Rating Change Table: - (example +2 to -2)

    DIFFERENCE.. RATING
    IN RATINGS.. CHANGE (+ for winner, - for loser)
    +2.0 ........ 0.083
    +1.5 ........ 0.118
    +1.0 ........ 0.167
    +0.5 ........ 0.222

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

    Please post all of your turn *9 power graph results to the latest CTP Ratings thread (this thread). (I don't look at all of the game threads in progress.)

    Also, a reminder that all APPLICATIONS FOR NEW RATED GAMES need to be posted here with:
    1. Official game name;
    2. Player list (in turn order) of all players' APOLYTON HANDLES (no nick names please). Place players that wish to be "unrated" in parentheses;
    3. All desired rated players must have a current rating -- (please state their initial rating if they do not have a current rating).
    4. The current turn number;
    5. The turn number you want the game to become "rated".

        Wow the powergraph can really fluctate early in a game! I remember last time I took a peek at it in Youngblood gathering I was second last...now I'm second hi! Must have been that invasion...err I mean exploration force I'm building

        Ahh, Monkey2 world...Lung, enjoy your country while you can...you're failed invasion is an example to all who challenge the Mighty French! Judgement day is approaching for the Austrailians! I will watch in glee as I lob nukes across the vast ocean to your defensless country! Hee Hee Hee!

              Thanx!

              Yes, I know I'll go down in the next rates, but I'm happy (and surprised) with this result... not too bad for a youngblood isn't it?

                Quinns,

                How does the rating system work for games where there has been a substitute? I'm playing in two games as a sub and I beleive they are both rated. One of the games, I'm in a particularly challenging situation. Where I'm at in the games is not really attributable to my skills or lack thereof. Can I opt out of those games for ranking purposes or doesn't it really matter?

                  Quinns, did you put me out of the Love Conquers?
                  I didn't knew it was rated and I just joined it.
                  I don't desire to get rated for the specific game.

                    Hail Nuke Boy, heh love that name....

                    Are you a permanant sub? If so suck it up my friend...I'm in 2 games where I took over, and one was, still is, in a "challenging" situation. Not to mention when I agreed to be rated I only beat warlord in SP, and now have beat Diety a couple times....So I started dead last in the ratings.......

                    Up for the challenge? I mean that's why you play PBEM, right? The thing I noticed is you can get ALOT of your objectives accomplished with offline diplomacy. In monkey2 I had to call up every bit of game knowledge, the principles of war, massive propoganda, and disinformation to repel nuclear attacks and an invasion from 2 countries. Lung hid about a 15 ship invasion force a few squares off my coast for god knows how long from my spyplane and ship and sub patrols. Now that's balls. Where else can you find that kind of talent? Not any ai that's for sure. I've survived so far, (and did some invading and nuking myself), and out of any civ game I've played so far ever, that one has been the most enjoyable.

                    Then again I might just be a masochist

                      Keygen; You are now unrated in Love Conquers.

                      Nuke Boy; Yes, you can opt to be "unrated" when joining as a replacment. Just let me know the names of the games you just joined where you wish to be "unrated".

                      Yeti; Good Post!

                        Hey, if those Germans are still AI'ed in Monkey2 and you want some REAL opposition let me know...!

                        As Yeti says, sometimes the 'Sub' games are far more interesting than the homegrowns - Can you turn the Civ around? Can you avoid being crushed like a Dog? Can you feed your population or transform your science? Etc...

                        Diplomacy is a wonderful tool and far more powerful than mere military might if utilised properly - my guess is that for every post seen on the threads, many more are sent privately...

                          Hey Mobius.

                          Then try to contact our Only Living Saint on Earth.

                          We received an e-mail from Jon 3 weeks ago, indicating he wanted to pull out of a couple of games, among others Lung Fast. He might be willing to let you have the indian nation - if you are in need of some new challenge. Other Players are Lung, Paul, Stavros and me.

                          I took over the romans (you do remember the romans, don't you ) from Shavlor many-many turns ago. And he had as usual made a very nice job.
                          First they ignore you. Then they laugh at you. Then they fight you. Then you win.

                            Hmmm, I didn't offer my services in that game because of a potential conflict of interest…

                            Of course, if all the other participants were not objectionable I could be persuaded to change my mind?
                            Is it me, or is MOBIUS a horrible person?

                              I don't have a problem with you taking over in Lung's Fast. But you have a lot of inside knowledge of Lung's Australian civ, so Lung might not be happy about it.

                              And if you want to take the German AI in Monkey 2, go ahead. We'll see if you can last longer than BirdMan's English . Your position is about as bad is his was; I believe there are two German cities left at the moment. Would you also want to be rated? I could use the extra rating points I would get for defeating you.

                              If your interest in Monkey 2 is serious, please post in the game's thread and you can play if nobody objects.
