Hit #10 on Goko leaderboard, which is a new record for me. I think I've gotten a higher raw scorew before though.

More importantly, level 44, new personal best :D

I think it may be slightly overinflated though, in that I've mostly been playing low-mid 5000 pro rating people. On average my record against people in the 40s is still pretty low IIRC...

Level 44!  #23!  I'm coming for you, Mic.  Need anything from the store before my crippling disappointment sets in?

Made it to level 40! Also 6200.

EDIT: I'm back for more bragging. Made it to the top ten on Goko with over 6400 with this game: http://www.gokosalvager.com/static/logprettifier.html?/20141105/log.513845c2e4b02905fc72a26f.1415223922952.txt

In which I auto-scrying pool because always buy scrying pool, while my opponent goes jack-counterfeit BM. My opponent ends up getting 6 provinces in 14 turns, which shocked me, though he said that counterfeit-jack was just really good. It probably is. I had to get counterfeits to trash coppers and a jack to trash estates too, which made my scrying pools sort of weak. I started kicking myself for not actually really looking at the board and realizing that there was no village, only trashing that forces you to gain treasures, and only counterfeit for +buy. However I had nothing to fear as I could just get more counterfeits to eventually play 7 counterfeits all on each other on turn 15 with 5 highways in play. On turn 13 I should have gotten counterfeit over province and trashed the silver from jack, not topdecked it.

EDIT2: Now on 10 game win streak, up to #8 and level 42. I think I'm done for the day...

I think you should print out the VP graph and frame it.

MOM, GET THE CAMERA



(Yeah I know it's not as impressive as 6k or top 10 but it's still an achievement after almost hitting 5k a few months ago and falling.)

Edit: Aaaaaaaaand of course after posting this I proceeded to fall a good 200 points.

While we're talking about it...



I finally made it into the top 100 on Iso. I guess it's partially due to inactivity of other ppl, I'm not sure Level 33 would have been enough half a year ago. Anyways...

I don't think inactivity affects the Iso rankings.

The full leaderboard will show the inactive people, but they won't show up in the one that only includes players who haven't played for a month.

Exactly, I'm referring to the partial leader board, not the full leader board. That said inactivity doesn't decrease the Level but ppl just disappear.

Are you kidding me?!?!?!?

But, you know, quit while you're ahead, right? Unless you just suck it up, hold your breath, clench your fists, count your blessings, and hit quick game one more time...

Ehehehehe. I used to think that the rating deterioration was a good thing, because it meant you couldn't hit #1 and stay there forever after going inactive. But it also creates wildly inaccurate stuff like this sooooooo...

Edit: I've also noticed that you used to have to be well over 6k to break the top 100 and now the threshhold is barely above 5k. Is Dominion Online just not a hot item these days?

I've noticed the same. It seems like everyone is rated lower than half a year ago on Goko, even the best on the leader board.

Finally reached 4500+ on Dominion Online! And closing in on the top 100... (123rd place now)

I know you guys are all down with Goko but frankly I can't wait until everyone is back on the same system :)

--

Edit: I shouldn't have posted this. I've been on a terrible losing streak since and dropped back to below 4300 :(

I got to 11th place in beta campaigns, which is nothing short of awesome for someone like me, currently isotropish-level 11. Like someone before me said, I use whatever metric makes me look good. However, it sure makes me want to speculate on how I can be ranked about 1000 places above my best friend, whom I play evenly against. Are there any bias in how they update the scores? For the record, I'm still not done with the campaigns, I have played the first 14 or so in each area. As long as I start with equal hands and not last in 4p with an obviously 1-player advantage game, I win almost all the games vs the bots.

FFFFFFFHOLY CRAP I'M LEVEL FORTY.

I'm like Desmond the Moon Bear. ".......how did I...get here...?" (the end)

Of course I do know how I got there. Playing a bunch of rookies and not factoring in my own rookie history.

I remember being almost adjacent to kilgoretrout on the leaderboard, like, years ago, on isotropic.  And I'm still adjacent to him on the leaderboard now, but we're both 45 instead of both 33.  I'm guessing neither of us have really improved, but the leaderboard is calibrated differently this time around.

He doesn't actually enjoy playing with me and had me blacklisted on isotropic, iirc.  Fortunately, with the new automatch that is totally unaffected by skill, he never has to play me now! It's a feature, not a bug.

Something is definitely calibrated differently - I went from Lvl 15 to 25, but not really.

The only difference is that there are fewer people on the leaderboard. Relative rankings should still be accurate, but the absolute level is going to depend on how many active players there are. Not everyone has played enough games on the new system to get a ranking. Adam doesn't have a ranking, I don't have a ranking, ADK doesn't have a ranking...

I'm not sure what the exact explanation is, but there is a trend where fewer total players means higher level.
