Rating system is flawed.

Basing a player on their stats only is something droid-boi would more than likely love and he would more than likely happily spend the next week number crunching that stats of every player in Sigma until his little overworked lappy over-heated and packed up after draining have of the power of a small Eastern European country. :)

Rating a player on ABP/DBP is overly flawed as it simply means they spend far too much time in Grep world farming/attacking and neglecting loved ones........never good.

Having a high ABP - means you smash your troops into the over-populated world of super turtles that is sigma. This sounds VERY IMPRESSIVE indeed - WOW I hear you cry - that player has a HUGE ABP - he must be a KILLER!! However, the learned amongst you will take a deeper look into smasher of the Super Turtles.......are they really that good and does it take much effort and skill to mindlessly attack?

Having a High DBP means you are more than likely the one of the specialised species of reptile that is found in abundance in Sigma known as the Super Turtle. These species have and extraordinary appetite of eating alliance resources by constantly demanding troops from their alliance to feed the craving of easy BP. Then then relieve themselves on the Sigma floor in the form of pretty Victory Processions so they can give birth to another Super Turtle City.


The sceptical amongst you might even wonder whether or not some of these players might infact sacrifice their (dare I say it?) OWN troops to feed their need for BP. How? Well........it's easier to support a ghost city with 1000 of your own slingers and kill them - you'll get all the BP from killing the 1000 slingers - you just wont get the BP from the troops that died - shock!

See - the mechanics of Grepolis are complex and infinite (kinda) but numbers alone say very little.

Position? Well - it's VERY impressive have 20+ cities in one ocean.......but give some thought to the players that are able to sustain their empire when their cities are firmly entrenched within foreign territory - far away from quick alliance support.. Yes their position is compromised but on the other hand - if they are able to keep the cities safe and continue to grow in enemy territory without relying heavily on their alliance - surely that makes a better player - even though their position could be considered compromised? :)

Reputation - the only thing that counts!

Alliance? Not really a credit to the player and no way to rate the player at all. In the herds that are doing well in Sigma.....all tell the same story - It's about the collective herd and not the individuals.

The best players are ones that find specific prey, pounce when they have to and minimise their own losses by avoiding the super turtle species of Sigma. They also try to work out when their prey is awake or asleep, go for the quick clean kill and then ponder their next meal.


Soooo

To keep on topic -

DEREKRISEN

Reputation - Couldn't say nicer things about this guy. Has a life, goes on vacation, spends time with his loved ones and happily plods along steering his herd to water and assists in helping them find feasts of Super Turtles in Sigma and controlling the level of cannibalistic tendencies his herd has to keep the herd strong,

Do you want to test the theory that mad tea party is a Turtle alliance? We could easily find out if you wish?

Neutral on your discussion on the other points but have to agree with you on this one.

paras

points: 9/10 again good set ups for morale
Opponents defeated: 5/10 not much abp for a 130k pointer, fairly average
Position: 5/10 O65, very quiet ocean, another one with a coalition against WoE
Reputation: 7/10, a fairly good sniper, respected by some bigger players from WoE, however a little disappointed that you ran all the way to O65 when your starting city was western O55
Alliance: 7/10, SES, lead by an arrogant leader, many members have been easily defeated by me thus far, but a few good players including yourself makes it a level above from the other MRA's.

Offtopic: just because you said that, i won attacker of the day today :p btw/ opponents defeated 5/10 ? cmon i have taken 8 woe cities till date and lost 4 to you guys.. if it wasnt for Mellowmalt, it would be a lot worse for you guys...
btw/ you would be the first one to call me arrogant.. wonder what i did ???

Ontopic..

Theracerct.

points: 9/10 a good balance. sleek cities + boomers.. at that size i wouldnt be too choosy either.. :)
opponents defeated: 7/10 a lot of enemy cities taken. 20 by my count, dunno how many were active so i'll take it for granted that all were..
Position: ?/10 since you're shifting oceans its not a good time to judge that..
Reputation: 9/10 other than MM i would say you are the other player of WoE to watch out..
Alliance: 4/10 again, always thought you guys were GOOD.. but it seems the majority are just being carried piggyback on the shoulders of some really awesome players..

'arrogant' not you but ryche but I took a city from him anyway so whatever I've got my bragging rights.

and attacker of the day, I could get that for killing 2k troops if sigma was quiet on the day lol so it's a situational award, I didn't get defender of the day for getting 57k dbp because keani got 78k dbp that day but both were relatively high for example.

anyways it's all off topic sorry, someone continue the rating

well i waited for sometime to see if somebody else would post, but nothing's up so here goes..

Theracerct

Points : 8/10

rank #18... so lots of points.. that sums it up i guess..


Opponents Defeated : 8/10 (originially 6)

i see very few "able-bodied soldiers" in your kill list other than me and andresbolo (this must be the arrogance you talk of).. most of your enemy conquests were very early in the game.. or players like dk who were useless outside woe and are now useless inside woe.. Of course solid abp and dbp.. definitely NOT a sim-city player..


Position : 8/10

nice.. almost ideal in fact.. cities are nicely interconnected.. if the troop builds are correct you'll be really tough to fight in WoE territory like NW 55... but then your recent conquests mean we'll have to wait another month to see whats up..


Reputation : 8/10

One of the few genuine WoE big guns, so by default your rep is god-like.. and youve maintained it pretty well...


Alliance : 4/10

WoE = hype.. an alliance that was never tested in the first few months of the game and now that the heat is on, is failing to live up to its initial successes.. i am still quite confident of the alliance not lasting too far into the WW era.. of course, some good team players like dyames, ladym, blackmanx, bud1, lotfi, etc are definitely around.. but theyre balanced by enough players who will (and already have) buckle under pressure..

Total: 36 / 50 (originally 34)


ps: somebody check the math..

pps: increased opponent kill marks... points are not just being awarded for cities conquered but for opponents fought.. and you do participate heavily in WoE attacks...

- And you care to lay the word arrogant around on someone else. Hypocrite.

Im guessing you have missed the amount of alliances we are up against and have defeated thus far. We have been tested since day one and as summer takes families away from the computer activity becomes a low.

WoE Alliance Kill List:
[ally]Listen[/ally]
[ally]Resurrection[/ally]
[ally]Resurrection II[/ally]
[ally]NOTHING[/ally]
[ally]South East Syndicate[/ally]
[ally]Genesis[/ally]
[ally]Genesis II[/ally]
[ally]Skullduggery[/ally]
[ally]Skullduggery II[/ally]
[ally]Tiki Warriors[/ally]
[ally]Unholy Elite[/ally] (Valkyrie)
[ally]COMING SOON[/ally]
[ally]Dushan The Mighty[/ally]
[ally]War Machine[/ally]


I am kind of curious to know the list of enemy alliances your alliance has taken out and what they were ranked. I would also wonder to who you are facing currently....
Lets see if we can really put a pretty picture on how great you are compared to WoE.

Your alliance has got a second wind and thats it also I've only really seen you and paras actually do much of anything and given you two have some nice skills to complement your timing of CS's but just you two.

again veering off topic but:

1. i used the word arrogant for myself.. racerct called me arrogant and i simply noted that my statement there is probably the arrogance he talks of... read again carefully :)

2. i never claim the SES is elite... even in other worlds it has always projected itself as a fun alliance where anybody is welcome whether a 20-hr-daily zombie like myself or somebody who's just looking to hang around on the forums and post stupid jokes.. you need to be friendly and either be willing to help, or be willing to learn..

3. we havent fought anybody else.. just you guys and anybody associated with you (like the skunk mandem, who btw is AGAIN IN VM?!?!?!?!?!)..

we rarely target and attack-bomb single city players or small alliances... in fact i can show you msgs from our forums where a couple of members have been stopped from attacking small players because it would just be bullying...

4. WoE was one of the only pre-mades in 55.. and your first round of conquers that got you your base were all alliances like skullduggery & tiki who amounted to zilch (as is plainly visible since theyre not around anymore).. in fact we never had the liberty like you guys to attack whoever the f* we wanted.. we saw the only ppl worth fighting in the ocean were you guys, and thats who we've been fighting...


if indeed like you say its just me and paras here (which is highly disrespectful to the other masters of gameplay we've got in our alliance right now), then SHAME ON YOU for failing to take out two piddly little players like us and then ranting about it in the forums...


there is no shame in fighting a war and losing some battles against an alliance that is thrice your size.. but it is shameful to not have tried at all...



:edit // extension:

on what basis do i say you guys have never been tested before and are now buckling under pressure???

the first player i ever targetted in the history of sigma was xlabx.. big talk big talk big talk... lost a couple of cities to me and killer boy and POOF disappeared....

next was dark sibling who was all threats and fire and brimstone and then 1 CITY OF HIS GOT CLEARED and he's in vm... luckily i got my cs into 3 of his cities before vm kicked in... if he went off for some genuine RL reason then im afraid i judge him wrongly but i doubt that is the case...

others like rincewind, 4runnin and mandem (who i honestly dont consider worthy of WoE) constantly rely on VM everytime we turn the heat on...

all your newer recruits from 65 have been sent packing... i can go their names if you want but theyre too inconsequential for any of us to remember... the only city that still belongs to you is jureros' there and thats because he too is on VM..

points: 8/10 - a bit high average for morale world, but better than most others have.

opponents defeated: 5/10 - many cities internally taken or from no-alliance players. However last 3 are from enemies, keep it up.

Position: 8/10 - seems like you're in the action, and cities are mostly in a nice distance from others.

Reputation: ../10 - can't really say anything to this, haven't heard any good or bad.

Alliance: 4/10 - what I've heard and seen about SES, I wouldn't like to be in your shoes.
