I have been struggling for a while to understand why veca has thousands of games and constantly times out in all of them. This results in having to play against him when he's rated 900 half the time. A possible solution that I believe would be an improvement to community would be to redirect all of veca's games to actually be set up against ve ...[text shortened]... e to worry about volatile rating incidents.
Please let me know what you guys think, thanks.

I've had several opportunities to time him out but don't usually bother but that is my personal choice(except in clan games where clan results are affected)
Others obviously do time him out which is why his rating is so low.

Neither is really satisfactory

We can't be sure of his 'true' rating, but based on his highest ratings let's say he's a 1600 player.
Another 1600 player with ten games on the go against him could expect ...[text shortened]... getting fed up with this.
You have to put in a lot of hard work to get all those points back.
Originally posted by vendaWhat about something that's triggered by losing over 300 points by timeout, at which point all remaining games become unrated and the account becomes provisional for the next 20?
There's 2 ways to address the issue.Don't include timeout wins and losses in the rating calculation or restrict players to a maximum number of games

Originally posted by jertamevAgreed, or their highest average rating would do.
How about using a player's tournament entry rating for calculations. That way, I won't lose a heap of points if I lose to a player with a current rating of 600 but with a TER of 1900. If someone can enter a particular banded tournament, then others should not be penalized by their artificially-low rating.
Originally posted by Benjamin BarkerI believe this has been suggested by someone before and I think it is a good idea. Have one rating for Clans and another Rating for tournaments. I don't think it was accepted well at the time it was suggested.
Agreed, or their highest average rating would do.
