Populous Reincarnated https://www.popre.net/ The Site of Populous The Beginning Seasonal Leagues IncaWarrior Wed, 21 Jun 2017 20:45:25 -0700 https://www.popre.net/news.php?n=103 Season 1 Begins July 1

We’re introducing seasons into the Populous league along side the standard long running league table. Season 1 will begin on July 1st and continue 3 months. Every quarter the new season will start.

In the new season, everyone will be reset to wildman, BUT you will get some credit for your standing in the previous season. It will be as follows:

  • A player will have 30% of their difference in mu from the start, essentially compressing the league.
  • Sigma will be increased to 6.0
  • Players will start out with credit for 5 games so they will only need to play 5 games to get a new rank
  • Players without previous season standings will start out as normal
  • Season 1 will use the the overall league as the previous season.

Updated Grade Distribution

Grades are going to be based on percentiles similar to how they were for the traditional league several years ago.
The top 10% of players will be shaman (up to 20), the top 1/3 of shaman players will be Shaman+ (up to 3)

Other ranks will be 20% of the non-shaman players each split equally into 3 for Grade+, Grade, and Grade-

Grades are calculated when you finish a game as expected and are re-calculated at the end of the day for everyone, including those that don’t play

Saved Games IncaWarrior Fri, 16 Jan 2015 21:05:45 -0800 https://www.popre.net/news.php?n=99 Crashed games can be loaded from saves

Load  Game PanelMatchmaker 2.0.3.0 contains a much wanted new feature to reload games that have crashed from a save. Save game packages are created starting a few minutes into a game when a player with substantial population drops out or if the game is suddenly closed.

The save game packages can then be found in the matchmaker’s new "Load Game" panel (only visible to the host when there are saved games available). Games are listed showing the level, date, players, and populations. The host can then launch the game as normal (no other settings needed) with the players from the game and is brought to a limited game setup screen, followed by a brief loading level before the game is right back where it left off.

Resync Protection

As an added bonus, games that begin to resync will automatically be reverted to a previous save without any intervention needed.

Mobile Matchmaker IncaWarrior Mon, 22 Dec 2014 09:42:32 -0800 https://www.popre.net/news.php?n=98 Populous Matchmaker now available on Android

Populous Mobile Matchmaker
Just in time for the holidays, the matchmaker is now available on the Google Play Store. The new app created by long time community member Omkar supports chatting and PM. It’s a great way to keep in touch with the Populous community during those tedious family dinners or even just extended bathroom experiences.

Sorry, you won’t be able to play Populous on your smartphone.

We should be coming out with versions for other platforms including Windows Phone (for the guy that uses it) and iOS as soon as someone finds a mac to build it on.
