Stats Display: Classic, General, and PureDip

Postby Shyvve » 21 Jun 2017, 04:44

Can someone explain to me exactly what is the difference between these three categories that can be selected on the Stats page?
I think I've got a good understanding of what PureDip is-full comms, classic map, no anonymity-but I'm unclear exactly what the difference is between Classic and General. Is it only that different maps and variant rules are included in General but not Classic?
And Classic can include any games on the 'classic' map, but with no variant rules, and might or might not allow anonymity?

You got it partially right.

PureDip is any map, full comms, standard rules. Anon still counts as "PureDip"
Classic is any map, any comms, standard rules. Anon and Gunboat count as "Classic"
General is any map, any comms, any rules. It's the same as "All" or "Site Rating"

Well it is all going to change when Dipsy rolls out the revised rating algorithm, so don't worry too much about it.
