PAX BRITANNICA PBEM LADDER

July 2004



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. Comments and results can be sent to one of the above. 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 Eiffel, Oxenstierna and Hillsborough games. The total number of games on the table is now 73.

 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?
 YABV: "Yet Another British Victory". Britain wins two more, and Russia wins the third. The race for 2nd between US and Russia narrows, and the bottom three powers all perform miserably (combining for one 4th, two 6ths, and three 5ths and 7ths) and continue to fall away from the middle pack.
