    I spoke to sponge about this on IRC. He says that when he sorted the players on the database in order of skill rating (the built in QL thing), it was almost identical to the QLRanks order (let's...

    I tried to email mino and hit him up on IRC and didn't get anything back. If he has written something in c++ it's not something we can easily distribute to others. So I reiterate my request to...

    That's a great idea. Any new accounts should be highlighted in the script and probably autokicked. To be honest, any new accounts playing in tier4 are fakes end of story. It would be straightforward...

    Elo Shuffling

    SyncError/Sponge

    Could you allow us to get access to which player is in which slot using the JavaScript API? It would allow us to extend the QLRD script to do elo shuffles.

    You still don't understand what I have said about the selective Elo stacking. Never mind my patience has more than run out on that one. I couldn't have explained it any clearer this time around so...

    Really? I'm extremely sorry to hear these abuses exist for CTF and my heart goes out to you. Must be infuriating. I only know about the CA ranks, and have never played CTF so can't really comment.
