This is a concerning trend as I have noticed American players tend to be better overall in the open games and more engaging. Anyone know why the leader board is full of euros?

The greatest player this site has ever seen is American, so I don't know what you're talking about.

I said the greatest player this site has ever seen and you listed the top 4 players on the 1v1 ladder.

Hope that clears things up.

I've only been here for a short time so please excuse my judgment.

But from what I've learned these are the best players:

MOTD (lives in America, but he's Indian)

MOD (Swiss)

Alhazi (Singaporean)

Krzychu (Dutch)

Platatoe :P (Irish)

Buns (Brit)

Master Bjarke (Norwegian)




Notice how none of them are AMerican :D

THere could be some people that i've missed out

Might make sense because the American players on this site tend to skew younger, Americans are fucked when it comes to taxes on gambling, and coin payouts are pretty meh compared to an average American's income or cost of living. Doesn't make sense to spend a few hours to earn less than minimum wage, and you're not going to do much better than that unless you're really good.

A big chunk of the reason why America seems to overspend on the military, healthcare, etc., is because American labor is hella expensive- at least a quarter of our massive military budget (this quarter would be big enough to just barely trail China's military budget) is just paying people.

I recall another thread where it complained why Americans seemed to have the highest proportion of being an arse amongst all the nationalities on Warlight.

The experimental design is lacking to answer this question.

Certain aspects need to bee controlled for.

How do you define a top player?

-- Most Wins? Maybe they have just played longer?
-- Best winning percentage? Maybe they farm?
-- Best ladder record? Maybe they prefer to play open games?

Another question, which is probably more important, is perhaps that during certain times of the day, certain types of games are preferred. What I mean is that it seems to me that open games on the Rise of Rome map are more plentiful in the evening in North American time zones, while overnight, that is in the Morning European time, I seem to get more action on the ladders?

Maybe, for whatever reason, there are more players playing open games from the U.S. while more players playing the ladder from Europe. It's hard to become a top player unless your competition is also good, and more numbers usually means more competition.

It's because Europeans can just waste their lives on WL thanks to the welfare nanny state.

And the only thing that the USA does better than France is being arrogant.
Indeed the Americans are the only people of the world to call themselves by the name of their continent
rather than the one of their country. Don't forget that Canada is part of America, Brazil is part of America,
Chile is part of America. But the Americans must believe that they represent their continent all alone...
I don't even know if there is a world in English, but in French, the inhabitants of USA should be called "états-uniens"
and definitely not "américains".
