PAX BRITANNICA PBEM LADDER

April 2003



The Pax Britannica Pbem Ladder was started by Jeff Janoska in 1994, and updated by him until August 1997. From September 1997 it was updated by Rune Aaboen. Since August 1999, it's been maintained by Mark O'English. Points are awarded after a 9/6/4/3/2/1/0 system. Players must have finished at least 2 games to be included on the main list.

The recent update was done after the end of the Bismarck, Eccles, San Stefano, and Tertius games. The total number of games on the table is now 65.

 ADJUSTED RANKINGS
 At the request of several players, I've put together a version of the Pax Ladder which takes into account how well each _power_ does in figuring the rankings (on the theory that a win with a power like Britain is not nearly as impressive as a win with a power such as Japan). It's located here.
 BEST/WORST SCORES BY POWER AND YEAR GAME ENDED

This chart lists the name and VP totals of the player who had the most victory points with each power for each year the game ended. The worst VP total for each power is also listed (immediately under the best), but the name of the player who attained that score is not listed...

Note: We no longer have final stats on all the games on the ladder above, and so not all games are included in this chart.
 HOW DO THE POWERS RANK?
 Germany pulls off 2 more wins, and jumps their average past France's and into 5th place, even with a French win thrown in. Oddly enough, all four wins this time belong to the bottom three countries. Which means that even though Japan did not move from their firm 7th place position, they actually didn't worsen their position this time. On the strength of only our 2nd Japanese win (congrats to Ned McIver for the victory), Japan actually improves their average slightly from 2.51 to 2.57!

Incidental GW means that the players stumbled into the Great War.
