For all that have been following it, here is the formula for OBV (the new name for MBV or M3BV): (3-2.5*Level+0.5*Level^2)*(.07*numbers+.43*3BV+2.27*openings) + (-3+4*Level-Level^2)*(.2*numbers+.32*3BV+1.38*openings) + (1-1.5*Level+0.5*Level^2)*(.38*numbers+.23*3BV+.99*openings)
This version only works in clone 2006, I'll make another for arbiter and post it here soon.
OBV is like 3BV except that it should be just as easy for any given OBV value to get a high OBV/s score. Give it a try!
