Re: FAQ: Arena mode

I just made a suggestion that every win in Arena mode should be worth at least one star (even if the opponent is 3+ levels below you): https://boardgamearena.com/bug?id=17117 I saw several other people in this thread make the same suggestion, but I didn't see the suggestion in the formal suggestion ...

Re: Arena Suggestion - Over all not game specific

When you're below 100 ELO, you currently can't lose ELO. But if you lose, you get 0 (except for getting 1 after your first game). Setting a minimum ELO boost just for playing a game would solve the issue. Get 1 for your first loss so people can still easily see if a player is playing for only the se...

Re: XP page winning percentage

Is there a separate FAQ/help forum? I thought this would be a quick answer.

XP page winning percentage

How is the winning percentage calculated as displayed on the XP page? I've seen numbers over 100%, so something weird is going on with multi-player games. It seems normal (I think) for two-player games.

Re: +0 for winning in arena mode

This is something that needs to be changed in Arena. If you play someone that is too far below you in level in Arena, you won't get any stars even for winning. But you are randomly paired. It really needs to be minimum 1 star for an Arena win.

Re: A reason to lose at Quoridor on purpose??

No idea about this particular person, but the Arena as designed gives a poor incentive. If you are sitting at 0 stars of a particular level and you are paired with someone 2 levels below you, you have no chance to gain stars even if you win. If your goal is Arena stars and you don't care about ELO, ...

17-gem card

What version of this game is implemented? There's no 17-gem card. When/why did they drop it?

I have the same complaint as everyone above.
And I just realized that my post went onto page 3 instead of page 1. The complaint is that if you win an arena game you should always earn at least 1 star. Either that or never be paired down so far.
