Ok so, I'm surfing around looking for the same things all of us look for....that is every last tip, trick and tidbit we can find (ok....not us...we don't find anything....Google actually finds it....but we, WE take the GLORY!)


Ok so , I'm surfing around and I found this statement and was hoping someone could offer some clarification.

Question about Seasonal Regatta team grouping I_icon_minitimeMon 29 Jun 2020 - 2:29 #2

When the regattas first started some of us found that by delaying the start we would be up against other coops that weren’t rushing as much to finish. 
The competitive coops would appear to be paying to win in some cases, or they would make it impossible to finish in the top 3 if you wanted to.

However, since then Playrix changed the rules apparently, and it now seems it doesn’t matter.
The delayed start isn’t supposed to make any difference now.
But...some agree with that whilst others say it is still better to delay starting.

My personal experience is that it has changed and a delayed start has no effect.
But I guess each coop has to make their own decision.

If it's not based on filling up a race with co-ops in the order that they start racing (starting a new group every 15 co-ops), the algorithm for placing co-ops in a group would have to know how many co-ops were going to be racing. Then you could determine how many groups of 15 there were going to be and assign co-ops accordingly, such as first to Group A, second to Group B, third to Group C, fourth to Group A, and so on. Does Playrix really care enough about delayed start to set up a complicated algorithm?

Delayed start can also be linked to the theory that the winner of a race that ends in a tie is based on how long it took the team to get there and not the time they finished.

Both of these theories are almost unproveable without a lot of cooperation/coordination between a large number of co-ops, so not going to happen. LOL

So, until proven otherwise, I will continue to believe in the benefits of a delayed start (and the Tooth Fairy).

There are a few threads in the old forum regarding the changing of the rules at the time they changed.
Nevada posted how a tie would work with a start on time coop and a delayed start coop.
HERE

Clearly the delayed start lost because they finished later, despite doing their tasks in less time. This was confirmed by Anna Petrova
