Maybe inter and pros can play together.

http://www.whiskytangofoxtrot.org.uk/ In the left hand corner of this page go to player handicap and check this out.We used the teamaliser to even up the odds when playing clan games.Really we just need to get a player rating that all agree on set up game and all are on pretty much same level.This is just an idea and may be silly but share your thoughts on something like this.

What if say, Raider or Dave with skills of 19 are playing against Trackless with a skill of -77? RON only allows you to adjust for a differential of 20....

Lol I agree with Fetus. Some people really don't belong playing at all. There's a huge gap between Pros, Inters, and Noobs.

Re: Maybe inter and pros can play together.

Well i didnt mean a pro vs inter maybe pro vs good to pretty decent then.Say Dave,Fetus,Raider,Alan,House were sitting waiting for a game and Dave says lets get Fear to come play cause hes sexy.And Fetus says well Fear is sexy but any of us would kill him by 111.House says we will all take a plus say 2 handicap.That would make me compete a bit better in that game i think.You couldnt use the haddicap if you have 4 different levels of players but say 4 pros and 4 good.Split the pros split the good and pros take a plus 1 or 2 .Game evens out a bit better.I havent played with the handdicap in years so i may even be wrong on how it works.But one thing for sure i am sexy.

We play with both. But on gs are usually only noobs. I check it always first and chance for a game is under 10%.

Re: Maybe inter and pros can play together.

I believe that there are two types of inters..
1. ones who have urge to learn
2. ones who just play as is and don't try to improve (no offense)..
The first type guys have the potential to becomes good and play alongside the pros, and they should be included in noob-split pro games if possible.. or as observers.. these guys usually watch rec games and learn from them, so within 10 or so games they'll show huge improvement.
The problem is that the 1st type inters are a very very small minority. Most inters are content to stay at their current skill level. Those guys should find other inters and play, rather than join pro games. There should be plenty of people at their skill level.

@Fear,
I had looked this feature up long ago when I was still new to RoN..
Here's an Infidel member's take..

Even with those potential learners. 1% play Seamad and 1v1 games and those settings are a great way to improve, I'd say a portion of my games are those settings. And 99% of inters have been playing too long.

Re: Maybe inter and pros can play together.

Where did "maybe" come from? Inters and pros have been playing together for years. And the line between is not always sharp.

As for +skill: doesn't that make the whole opposite team gather rescources faster and have more border push?

We balance teams just fine by splits or doing custom teams (3v5 for example). Or letting someone pick a nation.
