  4. Since it's been a year, I thought this would be a good time to tally up the characters' win-loss records. So here's the standings again, with the number of wins, losses and ties noted: Interestingly, Jon is the only character with a perfect record, despite being in second. I also thought it would be interesting to see who's won the awards the most: Arya has won the "Lord/Lady of the Seven Kingdoms" the most, at 9 times, followed by Jon with 3. Tyrion, Sansa and Mance have won once each. Jon has won 9 "Hand of the King" awards, Arya 2, and Tyrion 1. Arya has won the most "Lord Commander of the Kingsguard" awards, with 5. Jon and Eddard have 3; Stannis, Sansa, Brienne, Aemon and Eddison have 2, and Davos, Barristan, Mance, Bran, Sandor and Robb each have one. Renly has the most "Black Cells" awards, with 8. Cersei and Yoren have 2 each; Brynden, Varys and Jorah have one each. Eddard, Barristan and Eddison each have two "Chaos is a Ladder" awards. Dany, Asha, Doran, Sam, Brienne, Aemon, Bran, Sansa, Oberyn, Robb and Theon have each won one. Aemon, Eddison and Theon have two "Chaos is a Pit" awards each. Dany, Eddard, Sam, Brienne, Barristan, Bran, Sansa, Sandor and Catelyn all have one. Finally, my votes: [1] Arya Stark vs. [7] Daenerys Targaryen [2] Jon Snow vs. [9] Asha Greyjoy [3] Tyrion Lannister vs. [8] Eddard Stark [4] Davos Seaworth vs. [10] Doran Martell [5] Jaime Lannister vs. [6] Stannis Baratheon [11] Samwell Tarly vs. [12] Brienne Tarth [13] Barristan Selmy vs. [14] Aemon Targaryen [15] Brynden Tully vs. [16] Mance Rayder [17] Brandon Stark vs. [19] Sansa Stark [18] Eddison Tollett vs. [21] Varys [20] Tormund Giantsbane vs. [23] Sandor Clegane [22] Oberyn Martell vs. [24] Catelyn Tully [25] Robb Stark vs. [27] Wyman Manderly [26] Theon Greyjoy vs. [28] Petyr Baelish [29] Cersei Lannister vs. [33] Arianne Martell [30] Jorah Mormont vs. [34] Tywin Lannister [31] Yoren vs. [35] Margaery Tyrell [32] Renly Baratheon vs. [36] Missandei [37] Jon Connington vs. [38] Ygritte [39] Meera Reed vs. [40] Melisandre [41] Garlan Tyrell vs. [42] Ghost [43] Euron Greyjoy vs. [43] Jeor Mormont [43] Podrick Payne vs. [46] Ramsay Bolton [47] Gendry vs. [47] Roose Bolton

  11. It's been four days. Would I be able to help with the calculations?

  14. Yeah, I wasn't actually suggesting starting them with 600 points – as you say, new characters are likely to be less popular since we already chose all the really popular ones. My point was just that zero is a somewhat arbitrary number. One solution I was thinking about is to set the bias equal to the lowest total for the relevant rounds among the older characters. So for instance, if a character were added now they would start at 83.84 points; then in round 13, the bias would drop to 45.45 (equal to Renly's total for rounds 2-3, which is the lowest), and then in round 14 to 27.27. That would essentially mean new characters start tied for last place, so they can immediately compete with at least some of the older characters, but at no point would their "free points" give them an advantage over any other character. Just assigning a set number is simpler, though.

One thing I'd point out is that a theoretical replacement character might have it easier than the character they replace, since they would be matched against only low-ranked characters once the list has been "sorted" to a greater degree, whereas the replaced character had to go up against a random, possibly very strong opponent in the first round. That could be an argument for making it hard for a character to get replaced; you want to be fairly sure that the replacement will do better before you replace the character, since you don't want to replace a character with one who will only do about as well but survive due to an easier schedule. Also, have you decided how many points new characters will start with? I initially thought zero would be fairest, but I'm starting to question that* and it's clearly the worst option excitement-wise. *Consider a version of the game where instead of winning points based on their percentage of the vote, characters either won or lost points based on their margin of victory or loss. That would correspond to simply doubling and subtracting 100 from each character's score in each round, not changing the order at all, but making zero the average score. Yet zero is still to me the most intuitive starting point for a new character in that version, with lower starting points seeming to punish characters for nothing, even though zero points in that version would correspond to 50 points per round in this game.
