Yeah, who is petri?

From what I gather:

- he doesn't play the app
- he might not even play anymore?
- good enough for Gary Pan, a.k.a. the GOAT, to ask for comparisons

I am confused, does Gary have the nickname „Wolf“ or „Goat“ now?

Petri must be good if the great GaryPan has doubts whether he can beat him. Maybe Gary thought this thread might lure him out of retirement in order to face him?

I'm subscribed for the cliched western/kung fu showdown at the end.

I have noticed that GaryPan has a female avator on the app. Anybody know the reason for this?

Wouldn't that be G.WOLFO.A.T. (or G.W.O.A.T.)?

Maybe the nickname WOLFO will stick...

My favorite 18xx game for six players is two games of 1846 with three players each.

To me, what Gary is doing by posting this thread seems completely reasonable. If he has a winning record against everyone he has played more than a handful of times, he probably wants to know whether there's any tougher competition out there. What better way to do that than to post an invitation here?

just to add my two cents here - i am "raist" on the app and i have played many many games vs garypan. maybe 100 or more.

i think i'm a pretty good player but if i have to be honest, i think he beats me 80% of the time. and i think i have around 50% or better against almost all other players.

he's definitely the best 2p player i have come across so far, without a doubt.

I'm glad to see Gary register on BGG, even if it's only to needle the TtA community a bit.

Welcome to the community, Gary. I hope you might give some insights into the expansion once it's released to the general public (I assume you're a playtester on it).
I will write comments of all expansion cards in detail, but that will be in Chinese, I feel a bit difficult for me to translate them into English, i ‘ll Try for some
I'll volunteer to translate them into English for you. I am fluent in both languages and feel like I owe you a favour ... I have listened to your live analysis of TTA games and it really helped me improve. If you want, you can send your chinese analysis to my bgg inbox and i'll translate and post it online, making sure everyone knows it's from you.

Wow, nice thread! Gary is able to pull off very ridiculous things in this game, but I think I have to vote Petri as the GOAT. It would be great to see Petri him join the app.

If there was anybody who could beat Gary at higher than 50% with proof, they probably would of came forward already.

You're assuming that person frequents BGG. Gary himself just created an account a month ago.

CGE fixed statistics on their webpage, so I was able to get some data to check if GaryPan is the best player of TTA in the world.

Firstly total statistics for two players who have the most experiences in the game:

GaryPan
Games finished: 2594
Games won: 1913
Win rate: 74%

LaoHuang
Games finished: 3307
Games won: 1467
Win rate: 44%

Clearly, GaryPan is better than LaoHuang.

What is more interesting is statistics of games between players:

GaryPan vs.

AshLikeSnow
85:50 (63%)

Fayebian
98:61 (62%)

yangziduan
64:40 (62%)

saru
69:52 (57%)

hippo
22:20 (52%)

AaronGreen
19:18 (51%)

yaop
36:36 (50%)

JeremyBrokaw
7:17 (29%)

hippo AaronGreen and yaop are as good as GaryPan and it looks like GaryPan found his cryptonite in JeremyBrokaw.

Note:
Statistics are together for all types of games (2, 3, 4 players).

This is indeed interesting, but we really need the player count breakdown to assess.

I know that Jeremy Brokaw and Gary have both played in the Transcontinental Ladder 3p tournament and spent a lot of time in the top rungs together, so I imagine a lot of their 24 plays are from that.

Clicking that link, I don't see the 7 victories vs JeremyBrokaw. The data shows only who beat Gary the most and who Gary beat the most. How did you get the player-vs-player data?

I went to JeremyBrokaw's profile (https://account.czechgames.com/statistics/2-through-the-ages...) and there you can see how many times he beats GaryPan.

CGE is showing only top 10 players who defeated you or who you defeat, so we can't get complete data, but you can visit both profiles.
