This is how fast the ladder evolves:
That means that there is every 6th hour new Gladiator spot in the ladder, making 4 new Gladiator spots per day.
And when i say everyone will be a gladiator, its clearly an exaggeration, we all know its 0.5%, maybe N.A. english dont translate well into whatever u speak
For the record, its 10 * however many BGs. It works out to 100+ not much ,but still alot more than 10.
Wasn't aware that streaming is somehow his duty or that he has no right to play this game like a normal consumer anymore.
Having watched the streams of these "big names" and I've always wondered how they find the willpower to answer to the masses of dipshits and read through all the bullshit the random retards vomit in the chat.
This is always great. The two #2 teams battling it out to be bridesmaids. You guys will always be the sidekicks. Bucky to Captain America. Roy Harper to Oliver Queen. Robin to Batman. There is only one true RBG king, and what he lacks in eyebrows he more than makes up for in talent.
You heard of alts? Most EU top players have anywhere between 3-6 of their mainclass as alts. That's a reason why everyones mains have really high W/L
Not questioning that they have alts. Clearly thats expected when you have higher ratings. But I am talking about competition at higher ratings such as their mains are at. If there was real competition at 2600 CR they would not be able to maintain their amazing record and rating.
High end competition does not mean log your #5 alt and queue up at a much lower rating.
What I consider to be high end competition is actually queuing the characters that you have in the top 10 against other players in the top 10. Playing constant series' as different setups and maintaining a balance of queuing those characters often and actually climbing and falling in rating as you can see most of the players in the top 10 on the US have done quite frequently.
From what I see the logic is these ratios on the EU ladder should not be possible while actively queueing into each other.
Also there is a large discrepancy in total number of games played between the regions. If you compare the EU ladder (shown above) to the US ladder (shown below) you can obviously see what I am talking about.
There is only one connection you can make between the US and EU ladders and that is comparing azaels current record on US ladders to a top EU players record:
I am not pointing fingers or saying anyone is cheating on EU. That would be completely uncalled for. But in my honest opinion after my analysis I highly doubt there is high end competition if they have flawless win ratios and are (as they say) actively queueing during prime time.
Sad to say this but it seemed like many top EU players were very defensive about people in this thread questioning their ratios. When in fact it would be stupid for someone not to question a flawless win rate like that if it was on a ladder like the US ladders.
2012 yaspresnt finals - 3 eu 1 us, eu winner
MiR - eu wins
Bleached bones - eu wins
Hardest BG in US - rmp did 2800 when that setup was bad. It seems like ye, we flop. Idk how retarded you had to be to lose vs rmp while playing BM hunters comps. But on misery this rmp maybe would do 2,5
posts like these piss me off, u have no idea what u are talking about
**I decided to make this a seperate thread, instead of posting it on the individual post itself so that it wouldn't detract from the point of that thread**
While I do agree that wintrading is reprehensible, I find it ironic that the thread was made by a person who has a very conspicuous win/loss on the EU ladders.
In fact, the top players on EU all have really dodgy win/losses. I don't think they are wintrading or exploiting, tho Trillebartom was one of the players who originally exploited the conquest bug. Instead I think there is a serious problem with top EU players not queing into each other. Dodging is, to some degree, a form of queue manipulation and is overall bad for competition (just as wintrading is bad for competition).
Just contrast EU ladders to US ladders and you can clearly see there is some sort of anti-competitive outlook among the top players:
