Discussion and questions about the latest version of Chaos Reborn. Not for bugs, but for comments about the game play.

    I've won a League season or two primarily using 4FFA. I don't ever recall my ELO going up when I defeated 2 wizards but the 3rd killed mine. (This would be expected to happen if ELO is per "kill", whatever the heck that means, as opposed to win/lose/draw the match.) In contrast, my ELO consistently goes up by a similarly large margin regardless of how many wizards I defeat in a 4FFA, whether I personally defeat all 3 directly or merely manage to be the last wizard standing.

    Look at it another, simpler way. In a 1v1 League match, your ELO still goes up if your opponent times out and your wizard did not personally kill theirs. This would not happen if ELO were tied to direct "kills".

    Do I need to go on?

    In any event, this begs the question: what is a "kill"? Isn't it a valid "kill" when you maneuver the threats on the board to make your opponents engage each other more directly? But perhaps that is an esoteric topic for another thread.

  • So what if I killed two wizards, finished third and my ELO went up slightly?

  • i agree with you noworries i was going on about the heat of the sun

    the only thing im not sure of is getting points based on who you defeat (ie more points for a high rank)
    all i know is that it is pretty hard to get high rating these days 1550 or about is kinda common, where as in the early days ive hit 1741 in equipped chaos and a whopping 1804 in classic, i cant see that happen now

    I know. But just today I asked it to come back, and it agreed. Might take a few months to get back to its apex state though.

    Could you ask Centaurs to come back whilst you're at it? ;-)
