Order of the Meeple

(1/18) > >>

Hello!  :)

As previously announced, The Order of the Meeple is now here and I’ve painstakingly linked it in with my master list of scores and results from the first three online tournaments to have been run here at Carcassonne Central. Now that the final match of the Traders & Builders League has been played, I’m pleased to be able to share the following with you:

(I will track these stats throughout each subsequent online competition and update once it is complete - if you wish to opt please let me know)

Obviously it's early days yet and I'm expecting/ hoping that it will grow quickly, but we do already have 6 members of the Order of the Meeple as below:

Yellow membership level: Jere & rfielder  :(y)
Green membership level: Rosco  :(y)
Blue membership level: danisthirty, jungleboy & MrNumbers  :(y)

I will update the list again once the current Inns & Cathedrals league is complete, and with subsequent tournaments thereafter, and I’m expecting to see new members becoming part of the Order or progressing upwards through it with continued participation.

Please let me know if you think you’ve achieved something that hasn’t been ticked-off (or if you’re feeling especially honest and you think I’ve ticked-off something that you haven’t achieved). I’ve done my best to keep this as accurately as possible but mistakes certainly can creep in. Please also check the list of achievements below as there have been a couple of subtle amendments to these since they were initially publicised:

Thanks to everyone for your participation so far! As you can already see, the number of people taking part in our online competitions is growing, and there are currently 21 people involved in the Inns & Cathedrals League.  8)


Great work Dan.

A random observation: both quevy and Carcking have everything required for the green meeple except Green-1, which is to already hold the yellow meeple. So if either of them plays just one weekly game, they will achieve yellow and green straight away. And if quevy won that weekly game, he would also have everything he needs to achieve blue as well. So he could achieve three different colours with just one game!

Dan,  what are career experience points? And I must get some sort of gold star for being on 0 career differential!

Career Experience Points are awarded based primarily on finishing position within individual competitions. You get 1 point per competition you take part in, regardless of finishing position, and 1 extra point for everyone else you finish ahead of in any particular competition.

So, you finished 8th in the Traders & Builders league. 18 of us took part in that so you finished ahead of 10 people and got 1 + 10 Career Experience Points. You're guaranteed at least 16 more (18 at the most) from the current league as the lowest finishing position you can get after finishing 2nd in our group is 6th overall and there are 21 of us playing.

Even though the game to settle 13th/ 14th place in the overall ranking of the Inns & Cathedrals league is yet to be played, I've updated my CarcC online tournament record with the rest of the results and have updated the "Order of the Meeple" checklist too:

Members of Carcassonne Central have now played 253 games between them as part of the four tournaments we've held, and a total of 72,746 points have been scored in the process! A huge thanks to everyone who has been a part of this, I hope you've enjoyed the various competitions as much as I have (most of the time  ;))
