Most turns without an NMR

Postby NJLonghorn » 21 May 2018, 23:42

I recently hit 1000 turns without an NMR on my record. I'm sure many of you have even better unblemished records, which leads to my question -- who has the most?

I have never surrendered and never NMR'd, and hope to keep that alive. Never mind, the perfect run has come to an end. Dammit, DAMMIT, DAMMIT.

I just flipped through the top 25, and Norlight is approaching 4000 moves without an NMR.

I have only 1 NMR in 7709 rounds of orders. It was unfortunately pathetic, the last orders in a game where it made no difference anyway. I fell asleep entering the orders on my laptop in a drunken stupor... :-(

I must be around 4000 ish (never NMR’d) can you check for me. I’m not Premium at the moment. Actually it may be way less than 4000, which would equate to about 80 moves per game & that seems too many. Would be interested in how many it is, seems like 4000! Thanks

Premium Kitten say:

52 finished games
4 solo wins (7.69% solo rate)
37 draws (71.15% draw rate)
Longest streak of wins/draws (premium only) = 0
0 surrenders (rank games) (0.00% surrender rate)
0 surrenders (norank games) (0.00% surrender rate)
2395/2395 turns taken (100.00% consistency rate)

71.15% draw rate....... Impressive. You lovely, big, warm, fluffy, squishy, huggable carebear you. :oops:

fwiw I'm at

42 finished games
4 solo wins (9.52% solo rate)
10 draws (23.81% draw rate)
Longest streak of wins/draws (premium only) = 3
0 surrenders (rank games) (0.00% surrender rate)
0 surrenders (norank games) (0.00% surrender rate)
4454/4458 turns taken (99.91% consistency rate)

so a long run average of a single NMR per 1,000 turns... and I'd kinda guess at least one of those NMR's is me just hitting finalize on a retreating unit I intended to destroy without bothering to click destroy *shrugs*

That is impressive :)
I think my draw rate is just a tad less than that of V lol.

I think dipsy or nook said that that doesn't count as an NMR earlier this year.

Huh. Where do you even check that?

Edit: Misread your post. I originally thought you meant there was some place where you could see how many turns you've posted since your last NMR.

If you hit finalize with no orders entered, I am 99% sure that you don’t get an NMR.

I have no idea what my turns look like cause non-premium, probably nowhere near that many and I think I might have a couple dumb NMRs, but I'd just like to point out that wow this is a huge difference in game length.
