I’m on recovery so maybe a reset?
Do you literally leave then rejoin or do you have to wait to rejoin?

Sorry to hear that Ness. Hope your foot heals soon. I will try to explore the grid to pick up some points for you

Hmm, hello CumbriAndy, I see you've filled in rather a lot of squares already :-) I will have to do some serious running on Wednesday as that's the only day I'll be anywhere near my grid until the start of the next game. Oh well, the winning streak was nice while it lasted :-)

About This Thread

Sign up here:

This game is still in the prototype stage, so it's not quite up to standard yet, but I thought it'd be useful to get your thoughts.

Unfortunately, with apologies to those of you without watches, it's a GPS game ONLY, so you will need some kind of GPS upload, whether that's from a Garmin, app, file or whatevs.

I've entered you all for the game, and generated a set of matches at random. Every Monday at midday, the matches will end and you'll be paired up against someone else. The pairing will be based on the ranking system, so if you've improved your ranking by winning your match, you'll be paired against someone of a similar ranking. Likewise, if you lose, you'll be put up against someone else who lost - at least until the rankings all settle down a bit after a few months.

I've set your home location as per your Fetch profile. You'll be able to change this once I've built that functionality. One of you has a latitude/longitude of 0,0, so unless you do most of your running off the coast of Africa, you're destined to lose for now. Give me a shout if that's you. More updates to the location system soon.

When you follow the link, you'll see a series of matches - one of which will be your match. Click the scores to see the scoring grid and (for your own match) your map. Your opponent will not be able to see your map, just you. Click anywhere on the score grid, and it'll zoom in to that square on the map, so you can check its boundaries.

Two daily points for running, one daily point for biking, and double points if you're the first person through that square that day (based on the time you log the training, not the time you ran/biked it).

Undoubtedly there will be some bugs and questions about game play, so please do shout out if anything seems to be wrong. Please watch [this thread] to share your issues, to avoid reporting the same issue twice.

From now on, you can win up to 36 ranking points per match, broken down as follows:

12 dependent on ranking
Based on how your ranking compares to your opponent, just like it is currently.

12 based on how close the match was
If you more-or-less shared the squares, you'll get 6 points each; if it's a walkover you'll pick up the whole 12. If you win 63-42, you get 12*63/(63+42) points, and your opponent will get 12*42/(63+42) points.

12 based on the total squares owned
There are 225 squares in total. So if the score was 63-42, you'd each pick up (63+42)/225*12 points each. A reward to both players for exploring as much of the grid as possible.
