End game score

A place for general chatter about games in progress, games completed, strategy advice, bug reports, or really anything at all that relates in some vague way to RSW.

End game score

Post by Puzzler »

I'm having trouble finding this in the rules: What is the standard end game score range for RSW Classic?

Thanks

It's random within a range.

It's buried on this page: http://rswgame.com/help/turns.htm. The actual range is defined in the code thusly:

Code: Select all

    EndOfGameScore = {
        -5: (3000, 4500),
        -4: (4500, 5500),
        -3: (5500, 6000),
        -2: (6000, 6500),
        -1: (6500, 7000),
        0 : (7000, 8000),
        1 : (8000, 8750),
        2 : (8750, 9500),
        3 : (9500, 10000),
        4 : (10000, 12000),
        5 : (12000, 15000),
        }
Where the first number in the table is the selected parameter for the game (0 = average, 1 = somewhat high, -1 = somewhat low, and so on), and the next two numbers are the minimum and maximum ending score for that parameter.

So you can see, for a typical game where the server chooses the end-of-game-score parameter on a bell-shaped curve between -3 and 3, the actual end-of-game score will definitely lie between 5500 and 10000, with a strong preference to be closer to 7500.

For the record, the end-of-score table has been adjusted since this post, and currently looks like this:

Code: Select all

    EndOfGameScore = {
        -5: (2000, 3000),
        -4: (4500, 5500),
        -3: (5500, 6000),
        -2: (6000, 6500),
        -1: (6500, 7000),
        0 : (7000, 8000),
        1 : (8000, 9000),
        2 : (9000, 10000),
        3 : (10000, 11000),
        4 : (12000, 15000),
        5 : (20000, 40000),
        }
