A way to ensure that players would not have to wait so long at the top would be , on the 1st day of every month , to reset all accounts to 100 .

 

So every month there would be a new ELO Championship here ( the previous end of months top 100 list could be stored on the leaderboard section)

 

That way top players would need to be play at least 70 or so ranked games if they wished to get near the top each month.

 

It would also largely eliminate the alias problem as not many players would make the effort to get 4 or 5 accounts near the top in 1 month.

The problem is if everyone was 100 you would likely only play beginners.

It would actually promote more alias accounts, might aswell pick a new, unknown name, every month.

I like very much this idea!  And at the end of the year we will publish a diary with '' hot players of the month''  :P https://www.google.g...495176036258602

Yes but some players may have more time to play than others
As for me i am struggling on elo this period trying to reach platinum again but i dont understand why i meet silver or even bronze players so often
There arent other 600-700 players to play?

Initially yes , but games versus players below 300 are usually short duration.

I think most of the top players like to play on an account they are known to other top players . I think only 2 or 3 of the best 30 players are constantly creating alias accounts.

 

While most of the leading players have created aliases in the past they seem to be dormant accounts.

 

I think the players who create a new account each month typically get no higher than 850 ELO and it would take them most of a month to get that high.

For every account you see in the leaderboards at that level there are 3 alias accounts . So with 1,000 accounts between ELO 600 and 700 there are likely 250 - at most  - players .

Monthly ELO races sounds interesting.   That would encourage players to play more.   I always wanted a "reset" button so you could start your record over and go back to the 100 level. It would be great if the programmers could keep records of your highest ELO and total overall record after the resets.  Resetting monthly might be too quick though.  I'd have to think about it.
