Hey everyone. Was wondering opinions on a hard reset of rank making everyone back to unranked. Reasons: - current people that play ranked have so many games that its almost impossible to move, I have 262 games and I am on a 50 game win streak and have yet to move a single spot up unless a person goes inactive above me. - the balance has changed alot since ranked first came out and some people are stuck where they partly because of there games in the old balance. - the number of maps and overall playstyles have increased and a showing of real understanding for the game would be more visible with everyone having to fight again to get into the top. - Cons: you cant have your account that is in top 10 play a game a week anymore and keep its rank because everyone else has really low variation and tons of games. Options: Yes Please: this is just a yes for a hard ranked reset with no changes to the ranking system at all Yes + make inactivity slowly decrease hidden elo/points/rating: This would make it so that everyone starts out back at unranked again, you can start all overagain and work your way up but after getting where you are you still have to be active in order to keep that rank. you cannot get to number 1 and start abusing the system by not playing for a month to reset your variation and win a bunch more points each time and make yourself uncatchable. You would lose like 0.1% of your elo rating or points per day. that means that you would very slowly decay and that decay would effect higher up players more making the top more competitive to keep there rank. Yes + Shorter inactivity window: Hard reset with only allowing people to not play a ranked for 3 or 4 days before they are taken off the leader board. no decay. Yes + Shorter inactivity window and decay %: Hard reset, with a 3 to 4 day window before your taken off the leader board and you start to decay once you go inactive at a small rate that would be % of rating/points so that it makes the higher tiers more competitive. No: Seekers favorite word. Double No: bad idea, stop coming up with ideas.
