Scoring system

Does how quickly you win or how long you hold out before you lose affect how many points you win/lose?

I am under the impression that the only variables that affect your score upon completion of a game are the scores of the other participants in the game, and also, if you win, whether or not it's a draw.

Yep, it only matters if you win or lose, NOT how you play the game!

Drawing isn't winning, but yeah, that's otherwise totally accurate.

Drawing isn't winning,

I agree, but not all here do (and maybe not even a majority), and on the games archive, all participants in a draw have "WINNER" next to their name, and the potential of winning points.

For completion, what matters is
1) the difference between the player's rating and the average rating of their opponents,
2) the outcome of the game (solo, or how many are in the draw),
3) the number of finished ranked games of the player in the new system,
4) whether or not a shield rating is in place if the game would lower the rating of the player, and
5) the percentage of turns played by the player if they joined as a replacement.

The amount of supply centers does not matter.

So, to answer the OP:

No, if you played the game from the beginning, and yes, if you joined as a replacement, with the score getting changed more by a longer game by the replacement player.

Good answer for completion Sinny and great point about the replacement ratio exception.

Shrug. I'm sure that you are aware of my stance on other peoples' incorrect opinions.

Two teams play a football match. The score at the end is level. The match is a draw. Have both teams won?

Rhetorical question clearly. Petunia is right. There are three possible outcomes to a game of Diplomacy. You can win, you can draw or you can lose. There are those that think that a draw counts as a win. There are also those who think that a draw counts as a loss. Both points of view are clearly flawed though. Maybe there is an issue of perception, created by the description of the participants in a draw as "Winners" in the Stats tab (and in the end-of-game email). Maybe there is a seed of a suggestion for improvement there that I will carry over to the suggestions forum...
