I’m a bit concerned about the options given about the score estimator. There was none I could choose.
I think using a much better score estimator during the game would be cheating. It would tell you which groups are dead, where an invasion might work and so on. I definitely don’t want that.
However, I am entirely happy with having a bad score estimator available always. Actually this feature was one of the main reason I switched to OGS originally. I know I can’t rely on it, but it speeds up rough counting immensely. Doing it without any tool would just be boring work. (I only play correspondence btw.)
So what I want is:
- a bad score estimator being always available
- a good score estimator in the counting phase
And 1. is a lot more important for me. If I lost that I’d actually be tempted to see if other servers offer it.
