I have realized that there is no chance for me, or someone else outside the larger cities, to get a spot on the toplist of unique turfers on warded. Instead I’m trying to hold an good ratio as possible and compare it to others.
So what is the ratio? It is actually something that the turfer DaddyKing in Karlstad came up with, you take the amount of turfers that you have taken zones from and divide it by the amount of turfers who have taken zones from you.
It is harder to keep a good ratio than just increase the amount of players you have taken from since you have to look out for losing your zones to players as well. Best chance to approve this number is to be active and hunt for unique turfers on the last days of the round and not to hunt for yellow ones.
My stats today is:
“You have taken zones from 1365 different turfers.
1141 different turfers have taken zones from you.”
Which ends up in the ratio 1.196… (4 digits should do it).
For fun I have compared my stats with the ones who have reached a spot on both lists on warded. I have also included the ones that have given my their ratio in the past.
No changes in the top, bubblan and embeoo are the giants in this category but behind hem it is very even.
What is your ratio? Please write a comment if you want me to include you.
Lately my main focus have been visiting unique zones and take zones from unique turfers. While unique zones is quite easy and you can see in the the application which ones are unique it is quite challenging to chase unique turfers.
The receptionists at my work have become used to my short breaks when I take the zone just outside my work everytime a unique turfer shows up but the best zone in Karlstad for unique turfers are the one on the main square. I often adjust my coffee breaks and lunches to take a short bike tour to the square. But owning the zone at the square is also quite risky in the chase for good statistics because I often loose the zone to another unique turfer.
Today after the SKL Cykelconference, that I participated in and spread information regarding Turf I took zones from all the new turfers that I recruited (of course), I finaly got a four digits number:
Still a long way from the toplist at warded where Mobius holds the 10th place with 1672 unique turfers but I’m on my way!
Unique zones then? Last round I visited Borlänge again, about a year since my last visit. And took my unique zone number 1500 which was a personal milestone to the big goal 2500. Borlänge is a hard city to turf in according to me with paths that is hard to find and a city structure that is not my cup of turf. It was nice to see Dekatomas again which I met last time, at that time he was a beginner and we had a talk and I gave him some tips (I think). Today he have passed my on every level!
Today after a visit in Helsinki last weekend my number is 1560 so the journey continues.
Some time ago, in my old blog, I wrote about a different part of the game that the turfer Westeras showed me. Until then I had not given it that much attention to it so my stats was not that great. So I began to focus on extinguish some of the zeros in the TvT statistics on warded and claiming unique turfers whenever I had the chance. Before the summer my statics on warded was as below:
Unique turfers 2014-06-23
Since then I have continued my journey claiming unique turfers that have showed up in Karlstad and taken zones from as many turfers as possible during my trips to events. Today my stats have improved with around 200 turfers and the difference between losses and takes looks much better than before.

Still far from the top lists on warded but indeed improvements, and the hunt continues.
