About Dominion Scavenger
This is a website for the Dominion stuff, especially tools related to Dominion Online:
- The main feature is an intra-day level calculator for Dominion online. Since the official leaderboards are only updated once per day (as a technical limitaiton to the Glicko rankings implementation needing "rating periods"), this is the best way to make available your most up to date rating as well as a few other helpful stats.
- There is a live leaderboard that is updated every minute. You must be in the top 550 to start the day to qualify, and in the top 500 to appear.
- There are other features available as well on the website, such as Champions's Belt (one person at a time holds it, and whoever beats him or her "takes" the belt) and a not-really-maintained log prettifier.
- Some new features coming may be a more configurable chart for level history by adding things like mu and phi overlays as well as more general Dominion features.
- Last-X-days leaderboards coming soon
- Feel free to leave extra suggestions on the forums (http://forum.dominionstrategy.com/ is the most likely place for me to see it)!
- Also note that the profile/register features work but there's not any current functionality associated with them--they are a holdover from back when this site had support for Dominion League self-reporting.
All rankings use the glicko-2 rankings system:
- Glicko-2 can be thought of as a modified elo ratings system that accounts for certainty, and uses rating periods to mitigate long-term pull on average ratings.
- mu (μ) represents the system's best estimate of your current skill.
- phi (φ) represents the system's certainty of your current skill. The more confident the system is of your skill rating, the higher your rating will be (based on a 95% confidence interval)
