Ranking criteria for 2nd and 3rd place?

  • Hi.
    How Catan calculate who finishes 2nd, 3rd or 4th after someone win??

    I really don't get it and i wasted a lot of elo's because ranked 3rd with same number of pts like 2nd.

    I tried to find an answer but no success.
    Longer road? Number of knights played? Number of cards and/or development cards? Can someone rank these....

    @ankh. Thanks for your question. The VPs are the only thing that matter when claculating the position on the leader board. In your experience you may have lost ELO because the player which came in first place had a lower ELO than you. It is also possible that the other player who came in 2nd lost fewer or even gain ELO if his/her starting ELO was singificantly lower than yours and/or the winning players.
