I think that my ratings are artificially higher than it truly is as most players resign so early that it is not a clear win on my part. More of a gift I feel. Are you saying that you feel many people resign so their ratings won't increase so they can be a ringer in a clan challenge?
No, I'm simply saying that it would be nice to understand all of the circumstances that lead to a players ranking.
I, for example, have taken a number of timeout and believe I'm ranked higher than I should be due to that. However, as I was in tournaments and League games with time limits, I'm not ashamed of taking such timeouts nor to I feel the need to hide that fact from others.
If you believe timeouts are justified, then you shouldn't have a problem sharing the number of timeouts that you have done.
If you believe timeouts are NOT justified, then you should WANT to see the number of timeouts taken by, and against, others.
