Poll: New results feature.

Post by RicardoRix »

Hi Palace players.

Since BGA fixed the 'shared placement' ELO calculation. Yay! which means it's possible to fix the scoring in Palace.

Do you want to go over to this new scoring version?

The game is in the public domain, and so has lots of 'house rules' and 'we play it like this' kind of ideas. However I always thought that it was a game that you simply do not want to lose. So in 3-player, going out 1st or 2nd shouldn't really matter, it's just that you do not want to go out last.

So now I could change to that ruling, and the ELO calculation will also follow.
Here is an image of a proposed new format.

“Don’t be last out” is how arena nidavellir is often played, when someone has a run-away streak of good luck.

So this change would not be unprecedented.
