Why is there so few players in 1 vs 1 ladder ?


I am getting random players now and bound to lose with my triple strategy tactics.


Edit :

I also have like 40 games going at the same time. Don't invite me at tournaments please.

^ The new template remove wr and changed it to sr and now has cyclic orders. Some reasons why the change is bad is that it removes risk management, too fast of an expansion, and makes the opening too calculative.

That's incorrect.

The template utilizes many picking styles and strategies that allows any player to play effectively.

Strategies, such as picking East Russia, West US and Greenland. Or, West US, East Russia and Greenland. Or, West US, Greenland and Australia. Or, Greenland, Australia and East Russia. Or Australia, West US and East Russia.

Such a wide variety of picking styles and gameplay where 3v2 will never fail; you will never again be bored. Truly, much more exciting than that old piece of junk that was shamefully called "Strategic 1v1." What a joke.

I like the new map. However, the 3v2 never fails will sometimes give the first picker a big advantage due to the faster expansions. In the old template, I actually feel that the bigger territories are better since they are not attacked until later in the game.

West US still has 7 territories, by the way :P

On the other hand doesn't that mean a double-pick West China now works?

AWESOMEGUY's post is incredibly smart. If Fizzer counted WR vs SR in this thread, he would put AWESOMEGUY as pro-SR (selection bias). But alas, that post was sarcastic.

It isn't that bad of a template if you have time and patience to do the necessary accounting work. I went from a sure win (if I did the accounting work) to a 20-30% chance of winning because I was too fatigued from work. I should have just not.taken my turn that day.

Why is the seasonal ladder so populated? Because strat 1vs1 is with wr. Everything else is just a cheap, failed copy.

I still can't get into the top 200, even with less players in the 1v1 ladder.

how would you feel if you were playing chess and you tried to take your opponents piece based on tons of calculations and predictions and then a luck indicator tells you that you can't take that piece? Nobody would put up with luck in a professional strategy game and i think it is stupid that we had to put up with it in this strategy game. As for calculating your opponents every move, that is just part of being a better tactician. live with it.

isnt there more players in the ladder now than before? i remember 360-something right before the change, now there is 387. maybe it is less elite players now, i have no idea about that.

im confused, where did you find that number? on the 1v1 ladder page it says 387.

edit: i see 312 ranked, the extra amount is either people in their provisional period or finishing games started before they left the ladder. and who knows how many people in the ladder are inactive and getting booted from games but not yet kicked from the ladder. all in all the numbers can't be that drastically different than before the change.

but there is a lot of flux right now with some adapting better than others to the changes. and at least half of my opponents are still attacking neutrals with 4 even when it's obviously unnecessary.
