Notable Info

  • The quality performance decay has been significantly weakened in this release.  This penalty reduction (by about 1/2) was supported by improved prediction rates and the new variables (strength and decay acceleration) were decided upon after analyzing the results of several thousand simulations on the past 12 years of fight data.  If time allows, I may run additional simulations and further alter this value in the coming days/weeks.
