I'm playing Warlight for 10 days now and I start to ask me some questions.
First of all I have to say that I was often used to play "Risiko" as a classical Boardgame long time ago. Of course Warlight (without multi-attack) is some different in many ways.
Until now I have no real clue how to find out if somebody is good or not because I never have seen such a Point System in which nobody ever looses points. So from a theoretical point there could be a player playing here for a fairly long time and winning only sometimes. This player could have a good lvl?! Another play may be more new to the game but winning fairly often and have about the same lvl.
In this case 2nd player is stronger but they have the same lvl.
So if I want to know if somebody is a good player do I have to focus on statistics?!
If so this would lead to the next question - when a statistic is good?!
Another thing I'm thinking about is how can I improve my game?!
Of course I take a look at the history for any game, but I'm not sure which is the best strategie in some scenarios.
For example yesterday I beat a lvl 54 player 1:1. But what does this say?! Nothing at all?!
Did he play well? Did I play well? Is this an unfair outset and the game should always end like this?
This was our game: https://www.warlight.net/MultiPlayer?GameID=7946612
I could write some more about this, but I guess anyone got my point so I wait for some answers now.
