number of losses reported incorrectly

Postby hebbie » Mon Feb 15, 2010 5:51 pm

I've just noticed _nuvw_ lose a game (feb 15th at 12.31 pm), and its number of losses increased from 1 to 2, but then a little while later it went back to 1 (and it's clear the same submission given the number of games it's played).

If you look at _nuvw_'s game record, it has indeed lost 2 games, but the leaderboard only shows one.

(I'm not picking on _nuvw_ to be unkind - I've seen my own number of losses mysteriously decrease to zero even though I know I've lost a game, but obviously I didn't care so much about that case ;) ).

Right now, the only games that appear on the score-board are the ones played by the very last submissions of both bots.

So, if I lose a game and right after that the opponent resubmits his bot, that loss will disappear from my count (but you still can see the game in my profile). I suppose that was the case in the mysterious decrease you just observed.

Ah, that would make sense.
Thanks.
