PAX BRITANNICA PBEM LADDER

June 2007



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 the current Ladder keeper. 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 Alexandria, Aristotle, and Brindisi games. The total number of games on the table is now 84.

 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?
 Three new games, and Italy and America combined to perform so poorly that they were the only two to have their averages drop - the other five all improved! Of course, only Britain had a large jump, and the remaining four just barely inched up, so GB moved further away from the pack...

Deliberate GW means that someone deliberately ended the Game by starting the Great War.
Incidental GW means that the players stumbled into the Great War.
