Who is the best alias?

 

Player X, at 43 wins without reply, is leading the charge but there are a few contenders lurking right behind....

 

Perhaps these masters of mystery should fight it out between them in the Alias Cup?...

Pd3a was Sohal 

 

Game Over was Manning2Cruz

 

The Alias King (32-0) sounds like he is taking this trophy seriously

We have a new challenger in the Alias Wars!

Unbeaten with 47 wins, we welcome:

strangerplayer

I wonder who this could be. No-one has hit 50 consecutive wins from scratch before, so please, whoever owns this account, keep us informed so we can record a bit of alias history. Spies of all kinds are rooting for you!

And for anyone thinking of fooling the system by registering a few easy QA wins, know that the International Alias Federation has some methods for detecting this behaviour (this would be revealed by an anomalous change in ELO/wins, and leaderboard screenshots are intermittently captured in secret..)

My alias is strangerplayer who is currently 49-0 and 698 points.

I created this account merely to keep track of my highest ELO obtained.

Usually, aliases are unsporting and can be used to create an unfair advantage, which is why I used the same name for both accounts. I've also told any familiar opponents I encountered my true identity.

Thanks strangerplayer. Fans of aliases eagerly await your next game and hope you reach the 50 milestone without calamity! The world of the shadows is watching.

Congrats on making it to 50! As we can now see, progression for aliases becomes steep from this point.

qK85PCp.jpg

 

Above are the 14 names in contention for the best alias. As aliases progress and start to lose games, their Pts gained per match average will decrease accordingly. Aliases around 600ELO (that are playing Full Games only) should have a Pts/match score of approx 12.5. An extremely low pts/match (relative to ELO) may be indicative of a couple of things:

 

- The Alias is very old, where matches got harder quicker (when ELO was not as inflated as it is today)

- The Alias plays a number of QA games, recording wins but not ELO points

 

We can't say with any certainty who is the 'Best Alias' currently, but we can say for sure that the best alias is in the table above.

I am not getting this thread of Theo´s. Strange, if you say

 

My alias is strangerplayer who is currently 49-0 and 698 points.

I created this account merely to keep track of my highest ELO obtained.

Usually, aliases are unsporting and can be used to create an unfair advantage, which is why I used the same name for both accounts. I've also told any familiar opponents I encountered my true identity

 

then my (obvious) question would be what is your true identity... surely strangerplayer is hardly an alias of strangeplayer... so who is behind this, really? I have seen no questionmarks anywhere so let me be the one then to ask the question. We take no offense if you´re simply bmende or KM or anything like that, are we?


Lo
