    The TWD season has begun!

    The New Season of TWD begins


    TWD ladder has been reset on Wednesday the 19th of October and the new season of TWD has begun!

    Here is a more informative list of the changes that you can expect from TWD with some helpful feedback from the community.

    Rating system is now live and active and there are no new changes on this than previously discussed. Please see link https://goo.gl/hW5yrW


    The season (or until next reset) will last for 120 days (four months), The community were 50/50 for 3 months or 4 months but as their are quite a few new changes, These 120 days will give us time incase of any complications along the road as this is our first season with ratings and later on borrowing. For info https://goo.gl/JEAJGy

    The squad with the most rating in each individual division will be the winner of the TWDD/J/B season, no end of season special games, knockouts or playoffs will occur in the spirit that the community wished to keep this purely a TWD format and keep its distinction from TWL and TWDT.
    The squad that wins will be awarded medals or achievement to players which will be visible on the TWD website, provided they have participated on that squad for at least three games (any division) every week for a month. Their will be some discretion on this due to real life engagements etc, so if you have any reason why you can’t make the last month of the division and have had an “active” part on your squad during the rest of the season please contact the TWD team.

    Starting this season, the player with the highest rating from each division will be awarded with a new achievement. Please read your Messages for progress updates. We will need your input to making it all work.

    The division will run until the end of the Sunday on 19th February 2017. Where we will declare the winners and most top rated players

    We wish to promote activity in the division, and to prevent teams winning a large amount of games and sitting pretty at the top of the ladder the active rating system reduces squads rating over a period of time, so if you're at the top of a division you have to defend your right to be so by still making a effort to play games. If squads are inactive on the TWD ladder which is has happened previously, a good example being if potenza was in the division and had a number of games then Siaxis or someone came up with a idea to remake Force and the majority of players then joined Force leaving a few players who have not logged on in months on the roster, rather than Potenza being left as a shell on the twd ladder, a captain will be spoken to by a member of TWD staff to ask wherever they still wish the squad to remain on the TWD ladder, secondly if they do wish to remain, they must attempt to increase their activity. If another week goes by again, they will then again be prompted to increase their activity, if failing to increase activity and we have not received any reply from the captain and a further week goes on, the squad will be removed from the ladder but still remain on twd website in terms of rostering.. However I would encourage captains to dissolve squads if they no longer have interest in them to make this process as easy as possible and in the best interest of the division.

    You will now be able to select four captains on your roster as previously discussed, but please choose with care who you want to be your captains, as I would hate to see a squad dissolved at the late stages of the division due a rogue captain.


    Player borrowing will still be available in its current from which if the two squads both agree to borrow in the game, it will be unrated at this present time with all restrictions lifted and any amount of borrowed of players can be borrowed Perhaps a good training ground for new teams to learn team synergy.


    Rated player borrowing which will be introduced later on during the season so the feedback from players can be put into a working system.

    Rated player borrowing will work as follows but may be tweaked until the time of its launch

    Two squads will both agree to enable player borrowing in a match
    Then when a squad attempts to borrow a particular player it then will be sent to the opposing squad to agree.
    Squads are allowed to only borrow 1 player for TWDD/TWJD and up to 2 players for TWBD.
    You will not be permitted to borrow from a opposing squad during rated player borrowing

    The ratings earned from a borrowed game were discussed at the twd meeting, the majority of players present were in favour of a penalty for borrowing a player and were split between ¾ of the earned rating and ½ of the earned rating so I have compromised with a ⅔ of rating which is 66%.

    We feel this way players will only use borrowing system is desperate times of need and that this won’t compromise as quoted by Pressure “squad comradery” or the enjoyments of being part of a squad and steers it away from being Wbduel/Javduel and Base and will still feel like TWD.

    I would be lying if I didn’t expect to see at least one bump in the road as we move forwards however yet I again I ask your patience in this as we “the TWD team” are absolutely committed to moving forward than backwards and to make sure you can enjoy TWD as much as we do.

    I hope you enjoy the changes and enjoy TWD. Blow some spaceships up

    I wasn't sure where to put this exactly, so I put it here.
    Apologies if I am an idiot and if this question has been gone over multiple times: why do ratings of subbed in players not counted and are N/A? Subbing players in may change the game incredibly, (such as subbing out Fork because he is dookie for Eren who is a much better player than Fork, and he changes the game and wins it for his team going 8-1!) If say, that happens. Why doesn't Eren get rated for his efforts?
    Please explain this to me. Ty

    There are a few reasons. #1 is it's a bit of a pain dealing with all the special cases. At the moment if you get a rating for a round it counts as if you played the full round, so if you played only 5% of the round, that would get folded into your overall rating (and therefore could be easily gamed). Ratings also have a lot to do with the total # stars on one team vs the other, so this throws a monkey wrench in that machine, increasing the complexity of implementation quite a lot.

    Another reason: someone might sub in for another player, but the game is going horribly and the squad is just trying to do anything it can to salvage it. The person getting subbed in may do worse than they would normally because of this. I don't have the data on it so I can't say if that's actually the case, but it's possible.

    We'd considered requiring people to play some % of the match, such as 70% or the like. But in the end just decided to void any subs, because it would be the most clear for those playing to understand... After all, the system is already a bit difficult to grasp.

    Not exactly happy with it, but it is what it is. Let us know if it looks like it's being abused.

    One question to rating calcuation. Why doing terribly and going something like 3-10 still grants you positive rating?
    That way I can do terribly every round and still make it to the top by playing a lot, because I can't go below 0 and I can keep confidence up high.

    Simply don't understand that rating. Terrible performance should result in negative rating, so you can actually climb or fall down, without the need to use that confidence coef.

    How could you calucate it instead:
    + KO first player
    + Higher Kills than deaths
    + Won a round (team effort)
    - First out in a game
    - Early dying out (like really fast)
    - negative K/D
    - teamkills (in jav)
    +/- average rating of both team's players

    It would be fairly easy then and probably more valuable, as it would actually reflect something. Right now I am #1 with 1410 rating only because i played much, but I lost like 9 out of 10 jds i played and went like 3-10 in many rounds. All you would need to do is assign weights to certain factors making up the rating.

    Now I think the rating system is just too abstract, so no one cares about it.

    I have to agree - look at the top 5 wbs on the twd website right now....4 of the 5 are paladen's active players, yet paladen are 17-33 in twdd - surely that poor win record means they have neg stats or quite frankly, aren't the top 5 performers.

    I think the current system weighs too heavily on activity right now (sure, you want to promote TWD activity, but not to the point it completely skews showing who the best players are in each ship). Seems paladen wbs are only there because they've played twice as much as any other squad.

    Not bashing Paladen btw, it was the first stats I looked at when I loaded the TWD site.

    Maybe it is more aimed towards to the 7*s, 6*s and 5*s of TWD. Anyway, the ratings make no sense for me personally.

    I had 3-1 record with 2.2 K : D against top squads like envy/evil and I was among the very last in the ratings, whereas there is someone on the first page well ahead of me with 1-6 record and 0.6 K : D

    Ultimately, I think the ratings were put in place in order to increase incentive to play, which is fine. Personally, I can tell you that I dont have any respect for the ratings as they are, though.

    Also cloth who was rank 1 at 1500 points played 1 jd, I don't know if he won or lost but his points dropped dramatically to 600 :o. It seems like Mario kart where ur in first position and then bam ur suddenly last before becoming in first position a few secs later. Seems too unstable.
