Player Profiles

FAQ

What are player profiles?

Player profiles help you measure a player's performance across games. A profile includes various stats and a list of recent games played. You can access a player's profile by clicking their username in the Lobby.

Why do the stats in player profiles not match up with the stats in the Lobby?

Due to technical limitations, stats reflected in player profiles will only track matches starting this release version 0.5.0 onward.

Why are you calculating   __________   stat this way?

Choosing how to calculate a stat is tricky. My philosophy is that a stat should measure either an objectively good action or a playstyle trait but not both.

For example, "Vote Accuracy" is an example of an objective stat. The rationale is that if a Fascist becomes president in hitler zone, it is an objectively worse position for the Liberal side - voting "nein" is always better. However, voting for a Liberal president is less clear-cut. A conservative player might opt to vote "nein" to gauge the votes and gain information, while an aggressive player might vote "ja" to take a gamble or gain trust. Therefore, votes on Liberal presidents are based on playstyle and shouldn't be conflated with an objective measure.
