With a slight delay, here’s the ranking from last Sunday. The dominator @Solfyre is back on top (1,780 points) with an 11-point lead and also breaks another “true strength predictor” record:
@suedenim rises to 18th place and a career high of 1,116 points with a second 1v1 tournament victory.
are the 1v1’s still going? i want in
Be patient. But there are still no badges to win
Next LLL sign-ups start in a few days. Good to see you’ll be back in 1v1s.
I’ve just been getting a bit sloppy with the timely posting of the rankings for personal reasons, but this thread is pretty much a monologue anyways, so no sweat I guess
@HULK is back at it again and back in the Top3 of the 1v1 Ranking at 1,582 points.
Good question @HULK ! @Trucriot had asked for some time to wrap up some other games… But I haven’t heard anything. I have a bit of a game lull at the moment. It would be a good time for me. How about you, @Trucriot ? https://np.ironhelmet.com/game/5233289408020480
…and we could play our April Tournament semifinal at the same time if you’d like @Trucriot - you could be like one of those chess grandmasters who plays several opponents at once! https://np.ironhelmet.com/game/4507354874511360
Uh oh @Trucriot ! You’re busy!
Ahaha what an onslaught! I’ll join both games in 14 days when I return home from my travels if you guys don’t mind. They may become my last 1v1 games this year anyways.
As for the game lull: The LLL should hopefully fix that very soon.
As for the simultaneous grandmasters: Other recent respondents in this thread are probably more fitting for that role
@Trucriot sounds good! Have fun travelling and don’t stress about the games. They’re only just that, a game.
@BelSon gets a boost and rises to 14th place and 1,143 points with a victory in both his and his opponent’s 15th 1v1 game. A draw between @Macomber and @spymort (the first draw after Solfyre v Trucriot in the August 2020 tournament) gives both some points due to reliability gains - the former breaks the 1,000 point barrier for the first time in their career.
@kinghuang’s recent win in the LLL nearly managed to fly under my radar, but here’s the updated ranking now with him jumping to 37th place (782 points)
How does the “six recent winners and/or the runner-ups” section work? It might be the language barrier but this explanation alone is not enough for me. How are those people chosen exactly?
And if I’m already asking questions: What do the arrows mean? I presume they are related to ranking or points but I don’t see how. And what’s with the bars? I think they represent a change in points, but across what time?
Thanks for your interest
Basically, if there is someone who rose in points in the timeframe of comparison but doesn’t make it to the Top28, they get a spot in this 6-people-section - the rest is filled up with runner-ups to the Top28.
The timeframe of comparison currently is 4 tournament weeks - see “T-Week 92 compared to T-Week 88” at the top of the last ranking. The second column is referring to ranking changes in this time period. Arrows mean 2+ rank change. And you’re correct, the bars represent a change in points, relative to the maximum positive and negative change by a player in that period.
In the busiest tournament week since May, @Solfyre sets a new personal record with his 10th win, solidifying his lead at 1,786 points. @plug is making solid progress too with his 7th victory (1,495 points).
@OinkBark and @olus2000 managed to win their first 1v1 tournament games and directly enter the Top20 with 1,093 points. And after a few losses, @gaz123 is switching back onto the winning lane, gaining 170 points compared to last week!
Looking forward to the next round!
Winning a game in the Legendary Level League, @spymort (1,210 points) is knocking at the door to the Top10 now!
