SRN Idea
« on: 11 August 2017, 08:20:02 »
DoTa and me made some thinkings about SRN and increasing values.

He had some idea to do this:

NEW_SRN = ( OLD_SRN + 1000) / 2

To do each midsummer @30 th of June for Offline and Online

- Sensidays will be highest effective Tournament
- wan can use bonuses
- inactive players go more and more to 1000

should we do this ?

hey hey hey .... ElMichaJ

I think we should not do it.

Reasons:
- Our rankings are based on ELO. In any ELO ranking, no bonus points make sense.
- Inactive players will get more SRN without playing, at all! (Example: 750 old SRN + 1000 = 1750 SRN /2 = 875 SRN!!  So an inactive player won 125 SRN points without playing!) This doesn't make sense to me. It's just another way to inflate the ranking!

Please, no bonus anymore! In all the cases, it was just leading to unrealistic numbers and inflation! We have learned this lesson over and over.

The rankings right now look very good to me. No bonus, no inflation, realistic positions of players according to their skills. Like ELO is supposed to work.
If you want to climb up the ranking OFFLINE, you have to play more!

My suggestion would be:
- Delete OFFLINE OOO rankings! Instead, allow OFFLINE OOO to be entered into normal OFFLINE rankings!
- ELO will deal with it, like it does for online ranking!

Then you have 3 chances to climb up (or fall down ;D ) the offline ranking:
- Play ooo with your local friend (2 players)
- Play small local tournaments (3 players or more)
- Play international tournaments (Sensible Days or other Open events)

That's just fine, isn't it?
