Hmm, what are all those weights? Does the (I had assumed completely trivial) weight of the character affect bash quality? Or encumbrance?

Total carried weight.

It's experience/turncount

What about max depth? Surely someone who made it to DL100 beat someone who didn't...?

In the sense that you would require to kill Sauron to get to dl100 and killing Sauron is arguably more impressive than not killing Sauron, I suppose. In general, though, it is quite easy to maximize max depth the moment you have semi-reliable detection. Also you'd start to have ties, and that would be very annoying. The current system effectively prevents ties. XP/turns has been the backup ranking for a long time, for good reason.

On rare occasions, the ranking criteria are varied (e.g., the Hobbit that started wearing Sting, a Mithril Chainmail, and The One Ring - The winner was the victor with the lowest max experience, regardless of turncount. The idea was to see how low of a character level could win. It was a very fun comp, won by PowerWyrm, if I remember right, and was the first Angband comp I ever tried.) In any event, any special win criteria would be clearly stated on the comp page.

So starting to itch a little to give some ...ah constructive criticism. But maybe I'll just start with the core question. Are people finding the early game on a blackguard to be fun?

So im not a great player, but i have found the early game very difficult. Only been into double digit clvl a few times, and havent had anyone worthy to post to competition really.
Mostly when i play i play the "normal" classes that have something going for them, or a prescribed sort of playstyle.

Ranger, can shoot things.
Warrior can blast through most of the early game.
Mage has spells.
Holy classes have some healing.

It feels like im stuck in almost every way early game with blackguard. I just feel like i have no armour, no shooter, no spells, no healing and especially no damage.
Maybe im playing it wrong, but i dont remember the last time i played where ive had to run from grip and fang so many times

Hats off to you guys who have managed to turn the class into endgame territory

No more difficult than some of the class/race combos we've had in these recent comps.
