PAX BRITANNICA PBEM LADDER

October 2001



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 Togoland, Tibet and Tchad games. The total number of games on the table is now 49.

 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 could have 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?
 The US drops into a 4th/5th place tie with France on the basis of one 2nd and two 6th place finishes, while Italy and France sidle past them. Japan continues to worsen their already poor average...
