I mean a lower class than bronze spy. make a class with only the name spy, scout and so one. not bronze or silver and etc.

Jimmy,

 

What would be the point of adding a "lower class?" It is just a matter of semantics whether one adds the descriptor "bronze" or not before the rank. 

 

What really "matters" is how the system evaluates ELO and search matching of opponents. Since - I believe - ELO is the primary means by which the system matches opponents, you wouldn't necessarily play any different opponents by having a lower class.

 

However, what I suspect you might be trying to say is that perhaps the starting rank should not be at the lowest level. Having more room to decrease in ELO might enable those who are indeed "lowest" in ELO to avoid being at a disadvantage relative to new bronze spies who might actually have, say, prior experience in real live play. There is a legitimate argument to this approach and system (which is used in the US chess federation), but I don't think this reprogramming can be done anytime soon given current priorities for Jumbo.


How can I help you?
