Also, if you decay your rating and want to get it back up, you have to join rooms with lesser skilled players, and then you end up potentially getting unfair matches...

Sounds like a dream come true for every south american out there

next problem: why 2.k+ players have 1800 rating and bash on other 1800 players.

an example for you

2200 rated player on 26-11-2012
Will become :
1800 rated player on 14-06-2013

If a player is inactive for that long it would take 7 months of no games.
I seriously doubt he can still play 2200 rated level, especially if it is an RM player.

But he's not gonna play at 1800 level either.. he'd prob play at about 2k level :P

Maybe setting a 'maximum' amount you can decay on a ladder could be useful or something? Like a max of -200 points

I Mean....Taff is Great :)

He is isn't he? =@

Strongly Agreed. You have my vote :) Interesting ideas and hopefully this will be a huge improvement to Voobly's rating system.

NO, NO DECAY

REASON: THERE ARE WAY LESS ACTIVE PEOPLE IN AGE OF EMPIRES 2 ABOVE 2k COMPARE TO STARCRAFT 2 WHERE decaying is much more effective.

However, extend 10 day limitation to 30 days and it may be useful.

Good Idea.

My suggestions:

1) If voobly even adds that, save/add in players's profile the maximum/best rating achieved together with current rating as well as best streak and best position achivied. So people will get some personal history and achievment saved.

2) Try to make decay around 15-20 days (lots of active players make 15-20 days break), it will take 240-180 points if a player stay 1 year inactive.

20 days seems nice, but not 30.

strongly disagree
I wouldnt have the time to hold all my accs on their actual rate, and being 1800 rated is useless if you wanna smurf on a 2k room. And about the ladders being false, they will always be, since multi-acc is allowed on voobly(and i support it) and many players have multiple top ranked accounts, and they will surely manage to keep it that way.
If the ultimate aim for this is to build a stronger ladder, start from the begining and prohibit multi-acc aka smurfing. (in that case i will strongly disagree aswell)
