Subject: Percentage Wins(Regular Ponds)
Modified by Mike UK (5. November 2006, 11:35:32)
As someone has kindly bought me a temporary membership I’ve taken the
opportunity to update the percentage win table for regular Run Around
The Ponds.

This table is compiled by ranking players on a percentage of games won basis. To be eligible players must now have won at least 3 ponds.
The number of wins figures link to a list of the tournaments won and BKR
ratings link to a graph of their history. Only completed ponds are
included.

This list includes all players with 3 or more wins.

Subject: Re:
BerniceC: One of the extra benifits to Knights are more games. Extra benifits to rooks are yet more games & ability to start fellowship, tournaments, ponds, etc.....

But an easy way around it is if you really want a tournament or pond started, just ask a current rook to set it up for you. They can easly add the line "This pond is set up for BerniceC" or something like that.

McduellMUG: something that may help you in your first games would be to look at the history of some other recently finished games here http://brainking.com/en/Pond?trnst=3&trt=0 . I would pick some games that have about the same amount of players to look at and give you an idea of how the bidding usually goes.

Subject: Re: ic! But.....?
McduellMUG: You bid a number. You are trying to pick one high enough so that you are not the lowest number, but not so high you don't have enough points left at the end of the game.

Vikings 
Subject: Re: How do the ponds work for point? How does it move to make a move?
McduellMUG: the moves are determined by the time limit, the game you are in has a 7 day time limit so a move will be made every 7 days from the start of it at which time lowest bid in each round will "fall in" which means "be done for that game".
As far as points(BKR), It's never been fully explained, but its kind of like averaging wins from everybody that has fallen in before you against losses to everybody you have fallen in before, but more complicated.

Subject: Ponds and Vacations
If I am away on vacation, I can usually get on to the Internet about once a week. Therefore, creating Ponds with 7 day time limits makes a lot of sense to me. There is nothing more frustrating than having to drop out of a Pond because you cannot get on-line.
If we had enough 7 day Ponds, then they would pop up with the same frequency as 1 day Ponds!
What do you guys think?

Subject: Pawns and Ponds
I feel, as a pawn, that it would be good for pawns to be allowed into a pond. I am excited about the chance to play, but at the same time pawns don't always know what to do in a pond. So you could consider a "pawn pond" for them to try out in. Some pawns might like the game a lot! This would make one more reason for a pawn to want to become a knight or a rook, so they can play more ponds. That means more revenue for BK when the pawn is "promoted"... :-)

Thanks for letting me post!
