Hello,

it took me 15 lost games in the RM/RM 1vs1 ladder to get to my current level at 1300 rating. i started from 1600 if i remember correctly.

i can see why this discourages new players from playing in the voobly.

And now when 1000 players are online i can only play with 10 people because most of them are over 1350 rating.

And this sucks.

They should add the Rating System for 1v1 that they have in TG but not as strong. For example your 1st 10 games you get like +23/25 a win and you lose 20 a match. This means you will get to the rating you deserve/play at quicker.

Only people that will complain about this idea is the people that only play on smurfs every day.

Thats exactly how it is seems to me right now. You lose about 20 points per match.

1600-1300=300 points

to move 300 points at 20 points per match=15 matches

but the new player k-factor should be dynamic. for example:

1st match in the ladder you win or lose 100 points.
2nd match maybe 50 points

and so on.

imagine a registers to voobly and play straight away 15 matches against pros or noobs to get to his rating. takes a lot of time and is very demotivating for both players.

The 1600 Default ELO at RM 1v1 - protects 1500 & 1400 & 1300 players from smurfs (higher than 1600 players) that create new accounts. Once those smurfs create new accounts they found themselves obliged to play 1600 and higher players.

Supposedly, Voobly changes default ELO from 1600 to 1300 or 1400. You will be repeatedly bashed by good players and almost never be matched up with players of the same skill level, instead, you will be playing higher than 1600 rated players. Only if you buy premium membership you would be able to see AKA rate (real ELO) displayed when you hover your mouse their names.
