I have no time to play at the moment and will not until late June at earliest. That said you can probably see all my efforts have gone into Homelands.
On the topic of ticks I have bitten the bullet and corrected as many as I have been able to. I realised from the logs and various other information I could reconstruct some of the scores, but due to bugs in ealier versions and lack of logging I have been unable to do it exhaustively. I will continue to make updates (including lose out
the ones you recently sent me - which I uploaded but failed to match). Basically where I am certain the information is correct it will be updated (although some of this is scripted, but certain that the rules are correct). In terms of the winners and losers.... seb, Wil, asarkila (probably because we've played more recently). The real winners were DREAM, ari, dandalong and Steffest - Steffest the biggest relative winner.
I will make a few more updates, then once happy will regenerate the ranking histories which will (a) make seb's climb smoother (based on time games were played, not posted times via the ticket check ins) and (b) be correct with the ticks I have. I assume this will show DREAM to be clearly ahead in the past at various stages. Until I do this you can see the winners and losers at the time I made this live update.
Other points: I "lost" on level 54... seems DREAM was one tick faster than me. I've also lost on level 1 since I don't even have a recording (may have to look at backup CDs of my old university account for that).
In general, while I've resisted.... now finally bitten the bullet, it does make it much fairer and more correct. Various little loses of information are unfortunate. Luckily it only influences Homelands.
As for tickets, seb has about a week, checking the latest one in a couple of days early.... it's tough since you don't want potential new players to stop playing due to short tickets (maybe I need a new metric based on experience, top scores and games played on the ticket).
