Hand Strength

Post by CeartGoLeor »

Does anyone know how the hand strength is calculated?

Does higher indicate a stronger hand (more trumps and low numbers)?

It's an interesting stat to have to see how had an advantage in specific hands and how the result compares.

The developer said
It gives you a sense of how strong your hand of cards (+strawmen) was. To let you know how lucky you were, because it's easy to win with a strong hand. It's a sum of these values:

Every trump rank is 100, every trump suit is 10×(10 - rank), and every regular card is (10 - rank)
I think right now it's inaccurate. I suggested an alternate, much more useful metric:
Each non trump is 10-value
Trump suit=13
Trump rank=15

Thanks for that. I was curious about how it was calculated. Glad I can understand it now. I don't know about which metric is better. But it's good to have an idea of hand strengths
