Re: Record of my Predictions

So far in flipping coins to predict (coin predictions from last page) vs Princeofcarthage's predictions.

Forjustice-Lecastete Coin 2-3, Prince 1-4, Actual Result 4-1, both wrong, but coin did better
Snowww-Miggo Coin 3-2, Prince 3-2, Actual Result 2-3, both wrong, same pick so tie

NA Mathematically Eliminated!

As of GUA going 3-2 in the series vs Bwinner, the Mandarin Duck Squad can no longer advance, as they have 15 games remaining and are 15 wins behind second place CMC (and they would lose to CMC under the tiebreak rules even if CMC lose every map). So NA are out.

Amongst the teams that remain alive, S .....

Re: Record of my Predictions

So you're roughly as accurate at predicting series winners as flipping coins would be?

In honour of this I have flipped a coin a bunch to predict the week 3 series, let us see whether the coin can defeat the Prince.

Coin predictions:
Turk 2-3 Hazza
Knush 2-3 Kaiser
Snowww 3-2 Miggo
Optimus 2-3 Sam

I think the "wouldn't play 12/14 mirrors" is not really the right way to look at it either. Obviously I don't know because a lack of sufficient data from the stream but it seems like Wicked rather wanted to play Russia, India or Dutch on the map, given its no TP, these are going to be (amo .....

Re: A suggestion for balancing non-TP maps

Sounds like a good way to add experience generation for non-TP maps without (substantially) affecting TP maps. But if we're trying to give no-TP maps comparable experience generation options to TP maps would it not be somewhat easier to give them all TPs?

Re: "3 Settler Wagons" Shipment Discussion

From what I gather these proposed changes are more about making the discovery 2SW and colonial 3SW shipments less strong relative to other shipments.

Hmm ok quick and dirty (and possibly flawed due to things I'm not considering), so jp elo has 9355 "active" accounts (idk what counts for that). So the top ~19 would be the same proportion as GM for sc2, top ~457 Master, top ~2702 Diamond.
