Dear stratego.com fans,
As the current ELO ranking provided on stratego.com does not allow for filtering, I've done some fun work on excel in the last weeks in order to produce a "clean" ranking. So I compared the silver leaderboards of april 1st, june 21st and june 29th and removed all accounts who do not fullfill the following criteria:
1) be a registered forum member
2) having written at least 1 post in the last 6 months (since january 2014)
3) having played at least 1 game in the last 3 months (since april 1st 2014)
4) beeing the main account of a player (all second accounts as known by MT have been removed)
5) not beeing a banned player
6) beeing a player registered on stratego.com
the result is a ranking cleaned down to 50 players (see file in attachment). Anybody who would still recognize some double accounts in there is invited to post the evidence of it on this forum and it will be cleaned by next update. As well any suggestions for improvement are welcome. The proposal is to update this list once per week (usually on sundays) with the following rules:
1) New comers can be introduced in the ranking if they fullfill the above criterias and ask formally for it in this forum (for example a player currently ranked silver but who is not a forum member can join the ranking by fullfilling criteria 1) and 2) above, or for example a player currently ranked bronze but who fullfills all criteria above can ask to be integrated in the ranking)
2) Players can be removed from this list if they do not fullfill the criteria anymore or if they have been judged guilty of unsportsmanlike behaviour
This ranking list is to be considered a temporary solution until improvements and option for filtering will have been brought in the software directly. Because of the long manual work required this list may be limited to maximum 100 players.
Have fun, Satan-NL is still the undisputed N°1 since more than a year now on stratego.com ... somebody needs to challenge him.
NB: Anybody knows what happened to KingTubby, he disappeared from leaderboard?
