Activeness badge continues dropping IMPLEMENTED

Post by goose88 » Tue Apr 26, 2016 10:33 pm

Hello, this is "goose88".

I had achieved the highest activeness badge as of about a month ago. I went on a trip where I had poor service last week, so I resigned in 2-3 games where I was about to die so as to not hold the games up (or get skipped), and I think I ended up getting skipped maybe once in another game. In other contests I often moved with only a few hours left. At the end of my trip my badge dropped down one rank, which I guess I expected. But since, I haven't been skipped once or even let a game get down to within 1-2 hours of skipping, but my badge has twice more dropped all the way to the regular circular dull shield. What's happening here?

What is the formula again? Does it matter I only had 2-3 active games for a week or so? Or are you penalized if you take 20 hours to move versus 3 hours? Do the resignations hurt me for some reason? Or perhaps it's just a glitch?

The formula may be (no. of game finished in two months-no. of times being skipped)÷10
Example:If you get highest badge at end of Jan,and you only finish few games(may be 3 to 4) in Feb and March.In April, you may only get level 2 badge.
Correct me if that is not correct.

True. And my badge has been all over the place: even though my activity level is usually steady.
Thanks!

Thanks for the clarification. I was under the impression it just had to do with how quickly you played your turn. I feel like if I'm in only 3 good long private games at a time but I always make my turn in 10 hrs or less, I should be considered a dependable player. I guess I'll join a few more games!

basically, you have to have 5-8 games constantly playing without getting your turn skipped to have the highest activeness badge.

Which is ok I guess because it is for the very active players who constantly have 5-8 games at a time :lol:

ok, i have changed the logic to this:

please tell me if this is ok or nor (actually only skipping will drop badge)

logic:
- if anyone has at least 3 games in last 2 months than he has max badge (if he has no skips in this 2 months)
- every skip in 2 months will drop the badge by one badge.

what do you think (actually it is in, so you can see your new badges now)

Staying roughly around level 3. But practically no active games currently. (I am joined but we rarely take our turns :) )
Thanks!

please tap on the badge and on the badge statistics and tell me your values.


Coolguy: you need to have a fresh update on a game to are playing to have the "job" calculate your new badge.

I log in and out of my account quite regularly - is that enough to refresh it? I have 5-8 games (can't remember) but have only taken around 4 turns total this week.
Thanks!

No I updated - level 3 :D

My data in the last 2 months- 5 finished or long running games. I think that is correct.
Thanks!

yes on new calculation 5 skip will bring you down to lowest.

any suggestion to change? 9 skips is not so few (however the 71 is high too)

No, I think 9 skips should be flagged, but I haven't been skipped at all. I take my turns multiple times a day. I never get to less than 12 hours.

The only thing I can think of is that it is counting "resignation/withdraw" as a skip as I have surrendered quite a few games. Could that be possible?

hmm, i dropped from Level 5 to Level 3 today.
Stats say:
Skip/Kick (which a can not remember): 1
Games: 20
So value should be (20-1)/10=1.9

value > 1 should be top badge.
So why did it drop to level 3?

No it minuses 1 after the divided by 10 (so 1 skip equals 10 games) ... I think

Then the Information should be updated.
There it says:
Calculation:
(games-skips)/10=value
and further
value>1: top badge
1>value>0.8: 2nd badge
So even if calculation is
games/10 -skips = value

I should have 20/10 -1 =1 : 2nd badge
which means, not only calculation is not as in the Information but also the values correspondig the badges differ from what is said there ....

as i wrote above this is the new logic:
logic:
- if anyone has at least 3 games in last 2 months than he has max badge (if he has no skips in this 2 months)
- every skip in 2 months will drop the badge by one badge.
and yes the texting is not updated until we finalize the logic.

any suggestion checnging the current logic? (maybe every 10 running games will "grant" you to have a unpenaltized skip?)

Ups, sorry. I probably did not read that accurately and thought this was outdated by the calculation in the Information.
But if I understand this one right, with one skip (which I still can not remember, really) I should have 2nd badge, or did I miss another Information?

Sounds good to me. Maybe you should put a maximum.
If someone joins 100 games and has 10 skips he is quite unreliable I think, so if you change it like this:
10 games will "grant" you to have 1 unpenaltized skip
20 games will "grant" you to have 2 unpenaltized skip,
> 30 games will "grant" you to have 3 unpenaltized skip
it might be better ...

Edit:
hmmm, I had a look in my recent games now.
There are two games still running:
One that I lost, the other I have withdrawn.
It seems that there was a problem with me withdrawing so I was kicked instead.

i think having 1 skip on 10 games is fairly good.

i have changed to what i suggested : every 10 games gives 1 unpenaltized skip.

lets see how this works.

I think this is what happened to me also. I withdrew from many games, then I dropped rank.

But I seem to be back up to a decent rank now so I'm happy. :D
