HELLO GENERAL FORUM USERS!




What is TrueSkill™?


TrueSkill™ is a line of warlight games developed by myself. They are intended to be a reliable source of gaming within the community, while encouraging different warlight cultures to come together as one :)


What kind of games do you host?


I host different styles of games depending on my mood for the day, but I always take requests. The modes include (but are not limited to):
~1v1
~2v2
~3v3
~4 player FFAs
~8 player FFAs
~TrueSkill™ Signature Diplomacies

*Maps are frequently changed, as are the settings


How do I join?

Prerequisites vary from type to type. To have an average skill for the overall player base, team games will have a 35% win rate, and 1v1 40% . Diplomacies will not have Prerequisites as they are for fun, and imo do not require winning skill.

Conclusive Note

There is no set schedule as of now, but the ultimate goal is to have one based around the majority of interested players.

remember this is not a contradictory statement as I am merely stealing the trademark from

"TrueSkill is a Bayesian ranking algorithm developed by Microsoft Research"

This way people will think its cool.

Brilliant, OriginalLawlz strikes again! What will he think of next?

Good that you TM'd it, wouldn't want someone else here trying to take this idea way...

My question to you, OriginalLawlz, are these real time or multiday events?

Multiple Notices

~To the troll mocking my screen name, all present and future imitation accounts of myself have/will be reported by myself, several others and possibly the clan of T4R. Do not attempt to join my games with any current accounts, as they have all been blacklisted. Sure, you can make a new account to troll, and have your 15 or so minutes of laughter, but it's a waste of time and rather sad.

~Please only post comments relating to this new series of games. Any comment unrelated, or personal business will be disregarded by myself, and will not be responded to.

~Tonight's game will be as originally intended; Heavy Earth Diplomacy.

Tonight's event will be real time. Expect more diplomacy games to be multiday, and of a complicated nature.

Good that you TM'd it


It is only for appearance, and is definitely not a registered trademark.

^God Question, the boot rate/time limit is importent, oth for multiday and realtime.

Also are you posting the games in public or is it invite-based (etc. a signup sheet)

I'm hurt that you would think I'm mocking you and that you'd report me.

I'm a devote supporter and admirer of your work!

Also, I'd like to suggest a GoT Diplomacy.

The game is up. I cannot post a link (mobile issues :p), but the game is in the open games tab.

7 minute boot time.

I will have to ask a few friends about this, since I'm a LOTR fan, and have no experience with GOT. It will most likely be a multiday, due to it being a Roleplay game

I was really looking forward to the diplomacy what have I said or done that would invite such unsolicited hate towards myself?

In fact I have often encouraged myself multiple times to continue drawing attention to myself. So why would I blacklist and report myself? it seems very confusing.

1 half hour, 3-5 simultaneous diplos, and only 1 other person in the lobby. It's safe to say, this diplo was a bust :X

Moving on to multiday, because that's where this diplo is headed!

Wait a second... it's called "TrueSkill™", but...

Diplomacies [...] do not require winning skill.

Plus, most of the people who were clamoring over Global ELO/TrueSkill/whatever wouldn't say these are full of skill...

The only good thing that could come out of this is that he's trying new settings. Look at this one - Pig map FFA? Who would play that map strategically?

I expect elitism from this name why am I not getting it.

Seriously everyone else can get topic titles right. Motocross got the NitroType thing down correctly. Even the guy who wanted to kill his pet had a decent topic name. Those guys with repeat card ideas at least repeat the right topic name also. Arun even got it right when he was a noob. This is the easiest thing to do yet you can't get it right.

I mean it's not like you need some fancy name just look at half the other leagues. They have plain but descriptive names. They do what they say on the tin. Rotating Template Ladder? It's a ladder with changing templates. Clan League? Clans face off against each other. Pro/Rel League? People get promoted and relegated. There is definitely a set of English Words that can explain what you're trying to do here. Find them.

It just seems incredibly silly too. How are normal games not reliable? Just set boot rate pre-reqs and blacklist people accordingly. It just reads as an attention grab from over here.

It seems I can get the "trueskill" experience by simply clicking on the open games tab and picking any of a plethora of random games.

Because they are are completely random based on the users availability, what settings they've unlocked, and what they feel like playing.

I have every setting, I'm available every day (except Friday/Saturday), and I'm willing to set up games all the time. Just because I offer to make them, doesn't mean I have to join them, which means nobody has to wonder "crap, he hates MME. He won't make me a 1v1 LD"

Then do what Timinator does and make games for the RT and MD lobby with decent maps and settings for those that haven't unlocked the settings already. (I'm sure there are others, but I've only noticed Tim doing it.)

You can generally rely on players who understand or can learn the mechanics of this game to figure out the settings they like on their own. If they want new ideas, there's the ladders and forums. Aside from the "variety" you've offered, using the Pig map isn't working to improve public relations. There are numerous underused maps that are significantly more strategic for RP and FFA.

We also have several events on the forums that are dangerously close to yours and even RP events for those in RP clans.

Good for everybody else. Now quit bitching, you only look sad.


So sad :'(

...wait, you mean you look sad right? You're aware that the general perception of you is negative right? Perhaps you should take a couple weeks break from the forum (like Riya suggested) before you come bad with badly named (and organized) ideas?
