This is a continuation from the topics:

http://forum.strateg...651-alias-wars/
http://forum.strateg...lent-wars-2017/

The table below is created as follows:

The player who has the most wins with 0 defeats starts the bottom of the table
Then the player with the highest ELO and only 1 defeat is added (provided that their ELO is higher than the previous player in the table)
This process is continued until no-one has a higher ELO and less losses than the previous player in the table
Once this occurs, Class 1 is complete
The process is repeated to form 8 Classes
 
Notes:
 
Known Duplicates have been removed
Known 'Cheating' Accounts have been removed (eg accounts associated with eg Waterfall/Laughing)
Accounts which it is known have not played a game since April 2016 have been removed due to inactivity
If anyone wishes to claim an alias please do so
 
Purpose:
 
To present an alternative ranking which identifies players with the best records
Just a bit of fun
To highlight the large number of unclaimed aliases which are actively being used by some very good players

Where is hopeless noob in this list? I think he has a rather impressive ratio. :D ;)

I used to play against a few drunken idiots in College and University. I just recently discovered this game online, playing my first matches against real-world opponents. After 100 games, I'm now one of the top 10 players in the world.

Also "i am back" is dutchkillers, not hello124.

Eurowinner is greg I think.

Hello kitty is an alias of oracle, but I don't know his/her other accounts.

Marshal 2003 is himself / marshal 2004 / taaka / killer taaka / houhi and a lot more. Some have greek names. I think there are two people on that account. Sometimes he's good, sometimes he is bad.

Talent Wars is not a list of aliases - it is a list of the accounts with the best records. There are a number of original accounts in the tables (Spion... included)

Dreamcrusher999 only has 9 losses I guess makes it more appealing tho pretty same ratio.

As Fks mentioned, DreamCrusher999 is hidden deep on the list, in Class1 3rd place....

 

If he can gain 15 ELO pts, whilst losing less than 290 games (!) he will be top.

ok understood .... the funny thing here is that it always seems that the alias is more talented than the original player:

 

Dreamcrusher999 is more talented than hielco

pd3a is more talented than Sohal

cyka is more talented than nortrom

conqueror-GR is more talented than Overlord_98

Apocalypse is more talented than Napoleon 1er

kinigos is more talented than Gkaros

eurowinner is more talented than karaiskakis

etc...

 

any explanation for this fact?

You usually start an alt account once you have established your self and you are better then you first started in most cases. Hielco could have started first game on stratego.com not giving a crap, but with his alt he very much cares about every game. The same goes for everyone here.

yes, that's how I am.

 

I only really care about winning if I'm in a tourney game, or if I'm playing with YourBiggestFan (high win % and ranking,  and I want to maintain it)

 

Anything else is mostly just for fun or if I'm bored. I think it's fairly normal to play whilst watching a documentary, or doing other things in the background.

Hallo TheOptician, 

 

I´m missing Jesus_saves on this list. What is the reason for that?

The Talent Wars! table is created as follows:

 

The Player at the bottom of Class 1 is the Platinum player with the least defeats (Wicklow 57-2, ELO 742)

 

The next player in Class 1 is the player with the next least defeats, provided that their ELO is higher than the previous player (snowpony 78-3, ELO 810)

 

This process is continued until no-one has a higher ELO and less losses than the previous player in the table

Once this occurs, Class 1 is complete. The process is repeated to form 8 Classes.

The short answer is that he doesn't qualify.

 

The long answer:

 

Jesus_Saves has lost 118 games with an ELO of 859  (correct as of yesterday) He doesn't make it into Class 1 because all players above 859 ELO have lost less than 118 games. This is also the case for Classes 2 through 8. If Jesus_Saves wanted to feature in Talent Wars he would have to get to 930 ELO, in which case he would make it into Class 8, just above despy.

ZARKHAH 51 plays 80 friendlies against himself to get to 100-0 and doesn't feature anywhere ? Seems a shame.

Luckily you can't cheat at Talent Wars! Only ranked wins get you moving up the table :-)

 

As I noticed when putting together the list of players who had played a game since Feb 2 2017, one of the ZARKHAH accounts won 350 games and lost 0. A great performance, but no ELO gained...
