    It'd be possible just to pre-load those who have under X games (probably 5, in keeping with the idea that it would effectively replace quals) and then set them at 5 GP.

    The problem with needing to fine-tune the ratings adjustments for early matches...

    Hmm. With product, it sounds like maybe he was added by staff? That's odd to hear that he was added at the end.

    Did Mythril and Siaxis get added at the very start in the group of players (particularly in the middle of the grouping -- that would...

    It's just using a cached version. So MatchBot updates the database but MMRBot still holds what it loaded when it did matchmaking. Definitely needs to be changed. Marking it down.

    Am keeping track of these. Pretty overwhelmed at work currently but will mark them down.

    For the bug in the OP: when you say it made 5v5 teams in dd3, did it add some of the players meant for the dd4 match?

    The output text at the...

    The MMR system was built with the idea that we'd play qualifying matches. Thus the large changes in the first few matches. We realized that was just going to be too tough to try and do, though, always needing to group matches by either quals or regular matches....

    Adds a ton of character. Thanks for putting in the long hours to do this. Seeing these pop in the draft was impressive!

  • Good to hear that there have been some upsets. I agree with the "0-10 but still (somehow) contributing" effect, which is almost completely obscured by a stats-based approach.

    The problem we face with accurately rating MMR is that it...

  • Probably was a misunderstanding, as the shortened guide says "no subs." But hosts can mix teams up as much as they'd like ahead of time in an attempt to even things out.

    A few big improvements went in today that should make the process...

  • Thanks for the feedback. It's still a pretty new process. I posted a guide in a subchannel on our Slack, but it's an opt-in channel and many staffers may not have seen it. I've posted a link to it on the main staff channel in the hope that more will step up...

    I at least skim every post made on this forum. I'm not on my home system currently and can't see details, but staff are aware of this. We don't comment on bans publicly.

    The process to appeal bans is: trenchwars.org/support (This can include...

    Interesting that people aren't seeing PayPal work for them. What is the issue coming up? You don't need an account to donate and can just use a credit card.

    GoFundMe is a possibility, but they take a 3% cut, which is not nothing. It might be worth...

  • That's the eventual goal, to have MMR games run automatically. We're still in the testing phase, though. Having a staff member involved allows adverts, and the option to run matchmaking via MMRBot if desired. Auto-signup isn't that difficult to do.

    Good point about these updates. It's traditionally been very difficult to find someone with the time, energy and interest in doing this work. A lot of it is thankless in that it's only noticed when it isn't done.

    Here's a quick update:

  • I would say when we're playing these early games, since we have human knowledge of the capabilities of almost all players, let's just try to balance the teams manually. A host can just start an MMR-enabled game, then maybe assign the two best players as opposing...
