So I would post this to the ladder thread, but I am not yet a part of it. But I am planning on joining once I get better at this game. In the mean time I have been watching games that the leaders have played, so that I can hopefully learn something.

So I am sure most of you are aware of the new leader in the 1v1 ladder, "Tyrion Lannister," and I was wondering if I had missed something. He has an extremely high win percentage, something like 97%, and he just destroys opponents. He is unreal. But at the same time when you watch his games he makes some unusual moves that I can't quite figure out. For example he seems to quite often attack spaces with only 1 unit. To me this seems counter productive, he can't take the space, and there is a possibility (if that space ends up having one unit before it attacks) that he just wastes his unit. A lot of these moves almost don't seem like he is human, just they seem so different.... So I was wondering if I had missed something. Is this like a new AI on a beta run? Or is he just a chess grand champion who decided to take up Warlight? What are the rest of your thoughts on the way he plays?

Here are a few links to some of his games? https://www.warlight.net/MultiPlayer?GameID=10635466

Oh yes you've missed something. Tyrion Lannister was the biggest troll in Warlight before.

Thank you "The Dalek," for the strategy guide, I am only 10 pages in, but WOW does it seem informative!!

Tyrion Lannister, I almost feel like I am meeting a rock star (except this is an internet game, and this forum is probably a fairly small community.) Anyways whats your secret? Are you a grand master or a team of college students testing an AI?

Hey no matter what I have the up most respect for you. Either way it takes a lot of dedication, effort, and thinking to get a now 96% winning percentage, and the #1 spot on the 1 v 1. But I am a statistics guy, and I can tell you it doesn't take a significance test to tell you that when the next best guys have 70% winning percentages, something is up. Do you think your percentage will drop as your are forced to play other more highly ranked players? Or will your dominance continue? How about a few tips for a simpleton such as myself?

What The Hound says is right: he's likely an alt.

He has such a high win percentage, because he learnt how to play, and experienced the learning curve by himself on another account, and when he got to a stage where he can beat most people, he started this Tyrion Lannister account, and showed what win%s would look like, without the learning curve of losing so many times involved.

If Szeweningen wasn't known for being against alt/smurf accounts I'd suspect it was sze. The account responded to Sultan in Polish, and I can't think of any other Polish players able to dominate the RT ladder to such an extent.

His 'polish' response looks like google translated (incorrect grammar, and not even an ł in Sułtan), second one is russian (also google translate), and he has UK flag. Can be anyone.

His flag changes every few days.

I always thought it was the guy from GG who got banned for cheating with coins.

The flag whenever I have looked is from the UK.

Anyway congratulations on #1.

Capable of #1 isn't at all saying much about that accounts consistency.

https://www.warlight.net/LadderGames?ID=3&LadderTeamID=11594

32-3 on RT ladder.

There are not "plenty" of people capable of that.

Latnox on RT ladder was 37-9.

91.4% on ladder is significantly higher than 80.4% on a ladder.

Specifically a difference between good opponents. Latnox went 12-7 vs people over 1800. Tyrion went 10-1.

So Latnox 25-2 vs people under 1800, very similar to Tyrion's 22-2, but vs. good players Tyrion kept up that same winrate against better players, whereas Latnox fell off, hard.

Tyron's a much stronger 1v1 player than Latnox. Maybe not a stronger strat 1v1 player, but definitely a stronger 1v1 player.

RT ladder means nothing In win rates I'm sure mod will agree with me, it's just having a low sd and a high rating,

That's a silly argument.

You're 12-10 vs. 1800+ opponents in your most recent page of games. That's not more impressive than 10-1 just because your rating is higher and your SD is lower.

I, and I believe most other people, would consider Trueskill Mean to mean far more than rating.

Your whole argument seems silly to me, ratings for defeated opponents doesn't matter shit when it comes to comparing two #1 imo.. You will get a better idea of skill by looking at the games (haven't looked at either so dunno who I would rate higher)
