What is a Diplomacy Rating?
Your Diplomacy Rating (DR) is a relative measure of your game performance compared to that of your peers.
How is my rating calculated?
Your Diplomacy rating is initially set by the result of your first 3 provisional games. (see below). Once your rating is established, it moves up or down based on your game performance... which is based on a number of factors:
What does the P mean next to my rating?
The letter P next to your rating indicates that your rating is provisional. All new players begin their play with a provisional rating. Once 3 games are completed in the club, your rating will automatically become a standard rating -- The P will disappear and your rating will be established.
Your provisional rating is determined from a blended average of your performance in your first three games. Therefore when observing the statistics, consider that a provisional rating may or may not be a true indication of a player's strength, as provisional ratings can be very volatile for those first 3 games.
Diplomacy games may contain lying, stabbing, or deliberately deceiving communications that may not be suitable for and may pose a hazard to young children, gullible adults, and small farm animals.
