Congrats! (You could have had a V-8)

At 50 games, I think a good standard to consider for evaluating points is 51.4 points -- the number of points that you would have if you won the equivalent of soloing one in every seven games (100% time 10 games time 12 points divided by seven players, plus 80% time 10 games time 12 points divided by seven players, plus 60% time 10 games time 12 points divided by seven players, plus 40% time 10 games time 12 points divided by seven players, plus 20% time 10 games time 12 points divided by seven players = 51.4 points).

50 games is a full deck for calculating points, but I see that 8 of your games were not ranked, so you are still a few shy of the 50 ranked games mark. And yet you have outperformed the 51.4 standard. Congrats on that, too. My point count is not too far off from yours and I am approaching the 50 game mark. Perhaps I can improve my score by playing more surrendered positions.

(He's upset at being just short of the cut-off for being a platinum member of the classicists, but yeah, grats for getting above 51.4 points.)

Sorry Niakan. You'll always be platinum in my eyes. ...lol

Guess what I have? "98.99% consistency rate" lol, and better if not for NMRs on 2-player friends games that were already "over".
Of course my consistency and chance to drop-out of forum games, mafia, and CYOC isn't as admirable, but don't tell anyone. ;)

If you want to "sneak" your way to platinum, you could always just join tons of 2-player games and be careful to never NMR. Then, you could always just not even or hardly care about the outcome of the games and just finalize all orders almost immediately. That would boost your stats. ;)

Of course, I would never suggest doing anything just for the stat changes. ;)
