Could it happen? is the patch going to give me a 2nd chance at having a good rating? could it be!?

I have heard qoutes about DS and other ES people saying there is going to be a new rating\ladder system, I hope so because all those times I lost to OPness or just back when I plain sucked will be wiped off my record.

Am I misunderstanding what they ment by this? or am I right and everyone scores are being cleaned

If you have a good win % and bad cuetech,its because you "noob bash"

Resetting the ladder to 1600 is fine with me. I know I'm not as good as my rating may say (i win at 1702) because I play a lot of clan games and have the upper hand with better cooperation. But if a newbie comes to my game, I don't kick him out either, because I know that I would be pissed off if everyone kicked me out of games because I was new. Lately, I've fallen to a lot of rushes and native rushes, so I guess I'm just not as good early game anymore.

With a ratings system they seriously need to get rid of win percentages. Win percentage just doesn't mean anything and it encourage people to noob bash.

Any decent player can have a +80%win ... just play every civ until you reach ca. level 20 at quicksearch. I mostly loose to good players at this level because I'm used to give tips to newbies and I'm not up to a real fight out of the blue

Yeah, sort of annoying as I just got my cuetech rating above 1900. But that's a bit inflated from playing games at quicksearch with lower level cities and playing some of my friends who aren't very good.

I'm looking forward to the rating system nevertheless though.

It will be interesting to see how accurate cuetech is.

It will be interesting to see how they mix the rating with HC level and still make QuickSearch find matches in good time.

They should remove the current level matching system (the "within 10 levels") and replace it with something like like:

lvl 1-9
lvl 10-24
lvl 25+

So if you noob bash your rating goes down?

No, your rating goes up based on the other player's rating. If you're playing low rated peopel you gain less points and potentially lose more.

the cuetech ladder is based on a moment in time, in a sense, not really your past games... IE if can go on a 1000 game loosing streak and then win 100 games and be in the top few. So the cuetech method truly gives u a new chance every game u play.

    The "power ratings" will take into account your current standing. Though since ratings usually don't work like percents (don't get harder to change the more you play) you will have an easy opportunity to rise up.

    "The lembas had a virtue without which they would long ago have lain down to die. . . . this waybread of the Elves had a potency that increased as travelers relied on it alone and did not mingle it with other foods. It fed the will, and it gave strength to endure, and to master sinew and limb beyond the measure of mortal kind."

    In my opinion the win % is one of the worst things about ESO. So many noob bashers and 2v2 set ups, (people playing tvb and holding the 2nd spot with a cpu so their 95% friend can get in at the last min.
    Get rid of the win % and just play with the 1600 scores.

    Definately, I agree.

    The problem with the win% is that beating a noob and beating an expert gives you the same increase in your "rating." In that case, for the sake of ratings, the best way to improve it is to noob bash and that's why there are so many noob bashers.

    The other problem is that people who are new to the game are at a disadvantage compared to long-time Aoe players since they have a learning curve that will drag down their win percent.

    This %system is just making it easier to judge good people being noobs. My rate is 59-60% with 5mill xp Sometimes I get booted from games (1on1s) because of my % but then I tell him to play me first and I win like if I played vs nothing.. Remove the %system ESO!

    im 75%, still i have lost to peoples at 50% level simply because they play against almoust only experts, my 1vs1 cuetech rate is somewhere in 1700 and i can beat 1900 players on my clan, so thats pretty complex, but i play only every second week and i started playing 1vs1 just lately, so i guess thats the reason.
