Well, there is a difference between playing badly and throwing the game. Throwing the game in a team game should not be allowed. Problem is that humans are often bad at distinguishing between the two and, from experience, the most vocal players are often the least apt to actually make the distinction. It is true, that throwing a team game is an ugly thing to do. But it cannot be judged by moderators. Sometimes people look like they're throwing the game while in fact they just didn't know any better. Also moderators can't know every game anyway. And also it would take endless ressources if ..read more

Elo cares about every non-friendly game you play, Arena, tournament, or whatever, because it's a measure of your skill, and every game is relevant. Arena is a 3-month competition, and only cares about the games you play in Arena, and about the Arena score of your opponents. Your elo or your opponents' is not relevant for Arena, only your and their Arena history (in the current season, and for the purpose of starting league, in the previous season). The point of Arena is that everyone starts "from scratch" every season, and the ranking should be based on the performance during the season. Stat ..read more

Tichu • easy kick on arana

Hello, I got kicked out of an arena table again for being a few minutes late at the start of the game... I'd been waiting for a while and didn't see the game start. No warning, AS I'VE ALREADY SAID HERE! THIS SHOULDN'T BE POSSIBLE WHEN THE GAME HASN'T STARTED. I don't care about ELO points but every time my karma drops and now I can't even play in the arena. I'm thinking more and more about stopping playing this game because of the stupidity of some of the players here... Statistics: Posted by Matme1987 — 18 May 2024, 14:20 ..read more

Backgammon • Re: craw fort

If you are playing a match, for instance on 7 points, then there is a special rule about doubling, the Crawford rule: After the first player has reached 1-away, i.e. 6 points at a 7 point game, doubling is not allowed for one single game. After this game has been played, doubling is allowed again. I want to explain the reasoning of the rule a little bit: Doubling in Backgammon is always a risk-reward thing. With doubling you get bigger rewards if you win but bigger losses if you don't. Say, a player takes a 6:0 lead. This player had to constantly evaluate the risk/rewards of doubling while h ..read more

Backgammon • Re: stenen in het spel / stones in play

The game "Hypergammon" is a variant of the game "Backgammon". You only have 3 checkers each. Because a lot of hitting is taking place this game is very tactical and not easy to master well. I do not know a lot about it, unfortunately. If you do not want to play Hypergammon please check the game options when you start your game. For me, when I start a new game, it is always normal Backgammon and not Hypergammon. Statistics: Posted by euklid314 — 18 May 2024, 14:02 ..read more

what is the purpose of a new game with only 3 stones in the playing field. If you win or lose a game, a new game starts with 3 stones for each player in the field wat is de bedoeling van een nieuw spel met maar 3 stenen in het speelveld. Als je een game gewonnen of verloren hebt start er een nieuw spel met maar 3 stenen voor iedere speler in het veld Statistics: Posted by arkitsa — 18 May 2024, 13:52 ..read more

I wasn't too happy with many of the default game sounds, so I changed up the scheme to some softer sounds to my comfort. I know I would have been happy if someone had already shared something like this, but I couldn't find anything around the forum. So here are my settings, I'm sure someone will find this helpful. Let me know if you have improvements! Statistics: Posted by duxrppl2 — 18 May 2024, 13:43 ..read more
