Periodic Updates, Random Thoughts & Captain's Log

 
 

04-18-2024


Safari users on MacOS and iOS have been receiving a "Widget Didn't Load" error on many of the articles. This issue popped up about 3-4 weeks ago. I've been working with Wix support the last 3 weeks trying to get them to resolve this issue, but it seems they are mostly useless and it will probably never get fixed. For now, the only work-around I know about is switching over to using Chrome (yuck!). That works for most people, but for some, it may not work either. If you're having trouble viewing any articles, please let me know.


Preliminary calculations seem to indicate that Isaac Brooks will grade out as the 2nd best In-City Defense (Main Wall) General.


After updating the In-City Defense (Main Wall) Generals and whatever new General(s) are added tomorrow, I plan to start updating the Subordinate City Mayor rankings.


01-09-2024


I've been working on reorganizing the site to (hopefully) make it easier to navigate.


Other than that, it's almost the same update as two (2) months ago...


I'm again caught up on the Attacking and Reinforcing Lead Generals, but I've actually started work on the Ranged Combination Rankings. Let's see what new Army Generals are released 27 hours from now, I'm hoping it's something easy.

You are my go-to resources for so much of Evony, and I give out your URL to my alliance and anyone who asks. Do you expect to get significantly different results with this new rating system? It's one thing if everyone's ratings go up or down by similar amounts, but I'd be very interested to know if the relative rankings change significantly, e.g., Genghis Khan going to top of the leader board for ranged generals!

It probably depends on the General's Primary Troop Type. The Ranged Rankings probably changed the least because the Ranged Weightings didn't change much. The Ground Weightings probably changed the most, so I expect those rankings to be the most different.
