Ambassador Status?

Postby Camisado » 22 Feb 2017, 02:28

Hi everybody, I was just wondering why my player class isn't upgraded to ambassador status yet. Maybe I misread the rules, so if anyone could clarify, that would be much appreciated.

I completed 3 games in the past week. I don't believe I had any surrenders with the exception of my first game ever played.
Also is there anyway to tell what/when or how many surrenders you have?

2 finished games
0 solo wins (0.00% solo rate)
0 draws (0.00% draw rate)
Longest streak of wins/draws (premium only) = 0
2 surrenders (rank games) (100.00% surrender rate)
0 surrenders (norank games) (0.00% surrender rate)
432/432 turns taken (100.00% consistency rate)

I searched your name on stats...this is what the site has for you...so you haven't finished 3 games yet.

You need to complete 3 ranked games, and you're just on 2 ATM.

EDIT: Ooops, not that simple, it seems. See below.

These are the game numbers of the games that show in "My Finished Games"
125661
125283
125752
125690
125030

I thought you only had to complete 3 games didn't matter if norank or rank?

You're right, apologies.

Here's the rules thread:
viewtopic.php?f=657&t=43283

Friends & Schools are ignored, rank and norank are considered. The rules:

Becoming an Ambassador
In order to determine if a Diplomat should become an Ambassador, at the end of each game player records are checked to see if any Diplomats have attained Ambassador status.
• Your last three finished games you played from the start are examined, together with any other intervening activity such as other active games or surrendered pickups
• If you had NO SURRENDERS and no more than 3% NMR rate (excluding Builds), you become an Ambassador


You last 3 games are ( you don't have any where you've taken over positions, these are all ones you started in):
126197. Gunboat AofE
125661. Killer Queeeeen
125283. >NEW YEAR GAME

Your current games are also considered:
125989. JFF

You've not surrendered in any of these. I'm going to guess your NMR rate in those games is >3%. (Although this is looking pretty unlikely to me.)

I only had 1 NMR and that was on a build.

Your surrender must have happened during one of the last 3...

I looked at the history. It would appear that the Player Class logic also ignores norank games too.

When you surrender, you reset the "clock" on becoming an ambassador. So you have to start and complete 3 rank or norank games after your last surrender to qualify.

You only have two games that have played start to finish since your last surrender.

No it does not. Rank and Norank games both are included in the Class calculations.
