If you average it at that time, the results are what we posted. I'd much rather that than KOTE determining he liked my map better and intentionally breaking the results =P
You could have, however, counted the posts made before Scizor and later I posted the unofficial results. Those didn't have that problem.

Well, I understand that. Unless we suddenly start getting problems with that again, it's fine by me.

I didn't see anything in his post that suggested that he was doing it to make you win, although I wouldn't doubt that he did that.

There's the problem that everyone who doesn't catch your netgame (which is in the middle of the night for me, for example) will have huge problems catching a netgame. I understand that evaluating a map (at least anything that is not obvious crap) without having played it is not really possible though. What about making an official dedicated server? Is that practical? Would anybody be able to host it?
