I always appreciate your work and comments. And I also think all players do the same.. also when they are silent.
You are always wellcome here.. and if you want to share anything we would be happy when you do it here, too.

What do you think about a pick up game.. ONS.. AS.. or Jailbreak. I think we could grap a few players together. :D

I'd like to say I appreciate the efforts of people like Wormbo & others who are trying to make the game a better experience. I realize it can be a thankless job but I'm glad someone makes the effort!

Well said, Hyden!

Thank you all - you've done more for the game than anyone, and you kept it going 13 years (so far)!

You're right, Hydez! Been playing here for so many years -- I realized I've never really put much thought into how it all works behind the scenes :O The modders and the mappers truly are our unsung heroes of the online gaming community.

So a much belated but sincere thank you for your contributions is indeed in order :clap:

I know it's terribly late, but since Wormby is still stopping by from time to time and there may still be some questions about this...

We've finally managed to finish collecting and compiling the stats for the various versions of Even Match. Below is the average round time for a selection of maps over a 31 day period which haven't had any gameplay changes between versions/settings and which reflect a wide range of gameplay styles.

A: EvenMatchV2a5 (05 2015)
B: EvenMatchV2b2 - bBalanceTeamsWhilePlaying=True (11 2015)
C: EvenMatchV2b2 - Map repeat rate 20 - DeletePlayerPPHAfterDaysNotSeen=31 (02 2017)
D: EvenMatchV2b2 - Map repeat rate 27 - DeletePlayerPPHAfterDaysNotSeen=31 (04 2017)
E: EvenMatchV2b2 - Map repeat rate 27 - DeletePlayerPPHAfterDaysNotSeen=7 (05 2017)






































































































Map A: B: C: D: E:
ONS-Ahebban 21.1 16.8 20.8 19.1 19.6
ONS-Alien 16.6 17.2 17.9 16.6 19.9
ONS-ArcticStronghold 15.7 17.8 17.4 16.6 17.4
ONS-BitchSlap-With-Slap 18.4 19.2 19.4 19.1 19.3
ONS-Kingdom 14.2 18.8 19.4 19.2 17.4
ONS-MagicIsle 13.8 17.8 22.6 18.6 18.4
ONS-MasterShower 15.5 18.7 20.0 18.7 16.8
ONS-Pandemonium 10.4 13.9 14.0 14.4 13.3
ONS-Primeval 9.3 14.3 13.6 12.0 12.7
ONS-SlatedWorld 16.8 19.2 23.2 27.6 19.8
ONS-SpaceCargo 19.4 19.4 23.0 22.6 20.4
ONS-SpankJox 16.3 19.0 21.2 16.9 17.3
ONS-Spiffingrad 17.3 21.2 21.5 20.1 24.0
ONS-Torlan 13.7 19.1 19.6 19.5 21.0
ONS-VK'S-PLAYGROUND 24.6 24.6 25.4 24.2 23.8
Total 243.1 277.0 299.0 285.2 281.1


The high total round time for C is most likely due to the same type of map being played in a row and players being more familiar with them. Setting PPH data to 31 rather than 7 does produce better results. However, if even a single map such as SlatedWorld was removed from this statistic, then the opposite would be true (setting PPH data to 7 would appear better than 31), so we can consider this setting to have very little or no impact on the balance of the matches.

Overall, EvenMatchV2b2 produces much more balanced matches then V2a5 regardless of settings. Thanks to Wormbo for the tons of work that have flown into it! :yippiiieh:

Hope that answers any questions our players have about Even Match and it's different versions. :)
