Yes, but only to 0|-2

We can provide this

Hostile action against diplo units cannot be done at this point currently

Hope that helps...

wow - so the race is on?
I presume nobody can get to 0 0 because it's marked as "impassable", which is why i'm racing to 0 -2.  But if you can provide the closest 20 scouts to 8pm on Sunday (either side before or afterwards) (and I imagine that most people will get within a minute of winning timeso it will probably be seconds or 100th of seconds) then that would be fantastic! Do you just send me a download link for the winning scouts?
Now to persuade some of the nay-sayers on General Chat who say it can't be done - Ryelle said she lost scouts when she sent them to 0 -2, whereas mine came back fine.
There are enough who say it can be done - have contributed to the prize pot!

How can someone loose scouts? Armies don't destroy scouts! (i'm not sure if you could fail in the mission if you send just 1 scout though)

GM request (or actually anyone else) - roughly what time (to the nearest half a day) should each country set their scouts away?  I haven't really worked out speeds and so on and don't know the overall map, so I can't work it out.  I want to do a countdown on GC ("Worlds' End runners should be starting just about now" and so on)
If you wonder why I'm asking such ignorant questions, I only joined 19 Aug and I haven't ever played a strategy game on the internet before - Illy is fantastic!

Please another request (after the race I'll leave you alone - maybe for ever because I don't understand data downloads much) - someone on caravanserai asked if GM could announce the race along with the link to the race thread (eg in Herald as a small ad) and then announce the winners in the Herald?
I'm not sure how winners will be rewarded.  I wanted winner plus 19 runners up plus newest member to enter (ie 50% to winner, 50% split between next 20) but we haven't really discussed this.  At least the prize pot is big enough to split!

Hi there,

So I have a few data requests. One is for a tutorial on Rankings, and the other is a research interest. Feel free to PM me for more info as to what the research is.

OK rankings first: Quite a few people ask how the rankings are calculated. Could you give me the equations as to the way that this is done. OR alternatively I could reverse engineer the raw data to get the weightings, distribution curves etc...

Trades:- (this is for some research, and I would appreciate an PM about this and would highlight my credentials etc...)
I want basically the Sell and Buy times, and their associated Player Names and Town Name distance price and volume. For say a 3 month period.


Cheers,

TheNoon

TheNoon, this post describes how Rankings are calculated


I dunno how players would feel about release of their trade data ... since it could be used to indicate who is building how many of what troops where.  Might I suggest that player and town names be blinded (replaced by dummy numbers) as a compromise?  If I am correct that people might object?

Damn, really wanted to do a little bit of scripting in Matlab to work this out :-P 

Cheers Rill.

The other trade stuff would not be published in the public domain. I would keep it confidential  - the reason the names maybe of interest comes from a behavioural economics theory that I would like to test.
