    Player Ratings Thread

    Due to popular demand (re: one), I've decided dedicate a thread to this. It's a bit of fun, and might be useful for reference in case someone wants to know how good their opponents are, and whatnot.

    In case you don't know what 'player ratings' are, they're... well, ratings. On a player, funnily enough, based on certain categories which I feel might be a relevant factor in a match. These are the categories:

    (Ranked out of 5)

    Strategic Skill: (How good someone's ability at creating effective strategies or teams is)
    Creativity: (Writing 'original' strategies with new ideas)
    Debating Ability: (How good someone is at debating and swaying votes)
    Stamina: (How long someone can keep debating up for before getting bored)
    Seniority: (How long someone has been around for)
    Popularity: (How much 'hype' someone has, and how well they get along with others)
    Eloquence and Formatting: (The ability to write persuasively, and set out strategies/rebuttals in a clear way)
    Tournament Activity: (Your presence and level of activity)

    In general, these are how stats are defined.
    5 - exceptional
    4.5 - very skilled
    4 - skilled
    3.5 - very good
    3 - good
    2.5 - average
    2 - bad
    1.5 - very bad
    1 - why are you even here?

    How the totals are defined:
    35- 40: Wizard Saint
    31-35: S+ Class
    28-31: S Class
    25-28: A Class
    20-25: B Class
    15-20: C Class
    <15: D Class

    Anybody can rate anybody here, and new stats should be posted after every tournament to keep track of someone's progress. Practice matches may also be included in these.

    Have fun!

    The name in bold is who wrote the stats/rated the players. The links below the bold username are the players he or she has rated.

    Once we've had multiple tournaments, I'll separate things out so that we've got ratings for players over a spread out time period. But for now, we'll just have to make due with this giant mess.

    Yeah, AS says as much in the OP. Track them over time and stuff. I'll put up a couple tonight. Just as long as people don't taking these that seriously, I think it can kind of fun to see where people think about your skills and where you need to improve.

    You write good strategies and make teams which are built to be brutally efficient, but sometimes at the cost of creativity (or creative potential). Your debating skill is very good, but sometimes slightly unrefined, but you make up for it by being very tenacious in debates and not stopping until the opposition gives up. In terms of seniority, you joined in the second tournament, so I put you at a 3, and you're pretty well respected around these parts as well, so your popularity is high.

    The formatting of your strategies isn't anything special, so I gave you an average grade, and you're pretty active during tournaments and after tournaments.

    One of the best writers in this sections. He always produces high quality strategies. And I agree with AS on the creativity + strategic balance. I think he's the best at striking that balance in the GMG. He probably deserves a little more hype than he gets(or perhaps other strategists deserve a little less). Where I think he lets himself down is some of the strategic decision making. There have been a few different times, where I have felt that a few of his decisions have hurt him. Only other dock is lack of tournament activity.

    MP is a bit of conundrum for me. He's the master at writing simple efficient cutthroat strategies. Creatively speaking, he doesn't leave himself a lot of room. But at the same time, if a creative move is called for, he'll make the correct call. I think he lets himself down in a few areas. First, while his strategies are good, I think their simplicity and length can make people mistake them for being poorly thought out and of bad quality. The second is that he rarely debates the merits of the strategies or gets in rebuttals. If he did the latter on a regular basis, I think he'd people would respect him a lot more as a strategist(popularity).

    Eloquence: 1.5

    Igneel has definitely improved significantly since he started here. Particularly as he's begunto get a better grasp for the rules. That said, I think there are times some of his mistakes in his strategies and his rebuttals can be tied to not having a firm grasp on all the rules. Based upon what I've seen thus far, I expect that decision making will improve dramatically as he gets more experience. Personally, I think he's a little underrated on these boards(popularity). In part, that may be due to his some of his previous blunders as well the brevity of his writing.

    You write some good strategies and make fairly decent team; they're not bad per se, but not they're not exactly a formula for instant death or anything either. Likewise, it's the same with your creativity. I think what removes from your strategic skill score is the fact that sometimes your strategies are written like they're in character, but wrote enough just so there's still an element of strategy in there. It works, but it isn't going to net you the high points. Your debating skill isn't bad either, and neither is your stamina.

    Let's see...

    You're probably quite popular around here, and you contribute a lot as well. Gave you 4.5 in Eloquence and Formatting because while your strategies are presented very neatly, you don't write very persuasively (in my opinion).

    Alright Zeref,

    Zeref
    Strategic Skill: 2.5
    Creativity: 3.5
    Debating: 2.0
    Stamina: 2.5
    Seniority: 5.0

    Tournament Activity: 5.0
    Total: 25.0

    Zeref has made significant improvements in most every area. Particularly when it comes to decision making,debating, feel for the game and stamina. Strategically speaking, the biggest areas for growth I see are in teambuilding and how he utilizes his lower-tiers. With teambuilding, I think Zeref's teams often give himself unnecessary handicaps. And while, at times, I've felt Zeref has done a good job maximizing the effectiveness of his lower-tiers, I think it also has cost him. It can be a tightrope properly balancing the amount of focus lower-tier characters should get when crafting one's strategy. Finally, in regards to debating I do think Zeref has improved. A little extra confidence in your rebuttals wouldn't hurt though. Tournament activity and seniority speaks for itself.

    I think AS also suggested they might be useful for newbies looking for info on their opponent. Also as a way to track improvement over time. But mostly I think their just for good fun with a few tips on ways to improve thrown in.

    I think I used to be higher in creative and lower in strategic. I initally started playing in the battledome to make some creative strats with creative combinations. It was fun that way (and it still is), but my creativity came at the cost of my strategic value. I hardly won.

    Now that's it more balanced out, I'm winning more, but personally I'd like to become more creative again. In fact, I'll make it my goal to ?nd create the most creative strategies ?nd win with them.

    I meant that your strategies didn't really use any innovative tactics or anything, and a lot of the time they moved like how I would expect them to act in character and/or in the manga, with only slight modifications added to make sure their actions had synergy with each other.
