Levels Challenge

Is there currently a way to setup a level challenge? For if you just want to practice against the system. Or have some time on your hands. Where top scorers for each race and level are kept in a table, or similar.

They would need to be verified.
They could be submitted with your Account Name, Race, Level, Number of Turns and Link to Game for verification, so you should leave the game there for 24 hrs or until verified.

Too bad my old single player games were deleted. Planets.nu does not keep old single player games around, so I can't show my earlier scores.

It would be nice if single player games gave you some campaign points for winning. Then it wouldn't feel so much like a waste of time.

I ask the Site Admins for showing them next to "play" button.

I start playing Single Player levels to avoid the "too many public games" problem, but soon I recognized that playing these levels against the AI is one of the best cases to improve the Eco building skill.

I will not miss the experiences with these Single Player levels ... even the repeating design (if you play several races) let you focus on eco and speed.

I definitely learned a lot from playing single player. It's a worthwhile learning experience. As Frostriese said, it helps with eco planning and speed I think this is because you can play continuously instead of having to wait a day after each turn. Having quick feedback really helps you learn. You get better at optimizing and planning several turns ahead.

Level 3 privateer in 35 turns or so. The only thing speaking for me: I had barely taken my first LDSF off my HW, or a Massive Meteor reduced my clans on it to 1300. Total clans remaining: some 2500. Also painful: my 350 mines were reduced to less than 200, no chance to rebuild them. I had no molyb problems, though ;)

Oh, and taking out a maxed out Empire SB when the AI fails to build an SSD, meh.

Sorry, game deleted earlier today, just saw this thread.

There should be a Single Player Games section under your My Games tab.
Like this: https://www.screencast.com/t/l6OUC15pS

I vaguely recall an issue where, if you finish a levle and immediately start the next one, it may erase the game for the level you just finished. Be sure to exit the game and let @Nebulon verify the result before starting the next level. Also, obviously, don't delete the game manually either before the result has been verified.

@Decius: You're right. They remind me of those chess puzzles where you have to achieve mate in an improbable number of turns. Usually there's a trick involved like promoting a pawn distant from the action, or sacrificing the queen.

Robots Level 5 ... 35 turns .. Decius was faster, impressive performance -- I like this challenge here ^^

http://planets.nu/#/sector/262337

A good example whats the difference in looking aggressive and be aggressive. I didn't build an eco after hiting the Lizzard and that prevents me to advance faster to the Colonial afterwards.

I waste turns to lay minefields before my Carriers are present.
The Pawn Bioscan move was nice, but didn't compensate the time needed here.

@Decius: Yeah, I figured with the EE if it got to having to build Gorbies and fighter-producing starbases to handle Vickies, T-Rexes and Virgos, the Level could take a very long time to complete. So the better option was to strike fast and be relentless.

Of course it wouldn't work against a human opponent in a normal game. But then again if I was playing the EE and had an excellent ally like you or @Frostriese providing cloaking ships I'd definitely be considering it against nearby enemies. ;-)

Ladder updated @Frostriese. Is level 6 supposed to be quicker than 5?

Level 11 .. @Whisperer not sure about that, does there need to be another page for Level 11 and other scenario levels? Is anyone else interested in there being a record for those sort of things? It could become time consuming, but isn't that what time is for?

@Nebulon: lvl 5 is a clash with three AI - Lvl 6 is about Robotic minefields ^^

@Whisperer: Level 11 and further should be tracked (imho) ... scenario levels may be ^^

RE: Levels Challenge Is there currently a way to setup a level...Write Reply
@Nebulon,

My "Level 11" game was designed to be a challenging training level, in excess of the system-generated "Level 10" game. At this time, I'm trying to decide whether or not it's too big a step from the "Level 10" game, but I'll need to see a few more finishes to know. It's possible that the current "Level 11" game will be renamed to "Level 12" and a new "Level 11" created.

I believe that most of the scenarios (mine isn't a scenario - it's a real game with randomly distributed planets) are designed for fun, rather than challenging training (exception - CSY has some Campaign training scenarios). While it might be appropriate to track the "just for fun" scenarios, I think it would make more sense for them to be on another page.

Re Level 11, has it standardised yet? I see the AI's fighting each other and hear of off-centred starts. I guess there is no problem putting in level 11, as long as everyone is playing the same field. What do you think @Whisperer?

The work that @Whisperer is doing on providing a higher level of play is great. At the moment it's probably still in the Alpha or Bets stage of testing though. It might be best to let it become finalized before keeping track of scores. I'd hate to see @Nebulon spending time and effort trying to record numbers in a shifting landscape.

The AI might be getting an improvement which was hinted at by BB... or heck maybe already in place!

If it is a significant improvement, I'd save this list as is and start a new one for post-AI-update Levels Challenge.

That "shifting landscape" might be a ways off still, but Xi Scorpii jogged my memory about it.

Afaik - the AI is stable or become weaker.

When the Admin Team confirms a major update on the AI, Nebulon can decide to mark historic achievements as deprecicated or start a fresh list. I prefer the first - it takes a long time to get new records.

"Frostriese: it takes a long time to get new records."

I mainly want to see the players on the current list retry to beat their old score against improved AI... I should do a few myself to better understand the improvements if/when they come.
