faceit elo is inflated + solution
 | 
Slovakia ObjectiveFANofCSGO 
in 2016-2018 being 2k elo was considered decent and being 3k was considered being great, 3,5k=go pro nowadays being 2k means shit, a lot shit players are lvl10 cuz faceit playerbase is many times bigger than it used to be back in the days, so new players inflate the elo so much cuz they get 1000elo free instantly when they register being 3k elo nowadays is like 2.2k in 2018 and being 3,5k-4k is like being 3k in 2018 SOLUTION: You should lose elo when being inactive for more than a month, like its in valves matchmaking. OR: New registered players should start with less elo (500for example) so people wouldnt really grind much on them

you can even never play cs go and start from lvl 5 for all i care maybe you reach high level at other shooters maybe you train with pros in older cs versions even, lvl 1 is pure trash im glad this level exists for bots

doesn't make sense lvl 1 is a fair start why would anyone start from level 3

it makes a lot of sense, it could even be that you pick for example while registering whats your level, i would choose im semi pro, and i insantly get level 10 account, if i lose 1 game im lvl 9, if i lose again im lvl 7 or something :) makes perfect sense why i have to waste my time with complete clueless people, account buying would stop its great idea to stop time waste too

i don't know man imagine u're level 4 trying to be better and you get a level 3 that's new to the game and he loses the game for you

thats simple then, imagine that lvl 4 loses although i dont understand what rank has to do with getting better but ok , so imagine he loses too many times so what he does next when registering his new account he picks lvl 7 as starter rank or lvl 10 and prooves himself there because hes tired of new rank ruining his games :) solution is just too simple

I'm an LEM in MM, and think of myself as a better than avarage player. Came back to FaceIt after like a 2-3 year brake as a LVL 1, im dropping 30-50 kills a game and still not winning, due to teammates being absolute dogwater.
2021-10-17 14:10
I registered on faceit and started playing on lvl 3 i had like 2 kd and 65% winrate, it was just stupid grind to get like lvl 7-8 where they actually started to shoot back at you.

Decay isn't a bad idea, although you would definitely hear the community cry about it.

it is a bad idea. i am level 10 since ages and i play 2 games a year on faceit and I still carry everytime. i would eventually get to level 1 and 80 bomb. how would that help? high elo loses a great player and low elo gets a smurf to ruin their games. you can't fix ranks in this game, 99% of the player base is trash and because there are so many players these days, trash players will always be the majority even at 3k+ elo. however, how does it impact the experience? if you want to go pro, qualify for fpl or play with a team. pugs never meant anything, even when the player base was small. you should play pugs when you don't have anything else to do, not kill yourself over a videogame like a sad virgin.
2021-10-17 13:04
what would be the point, lets say someone is busy for a month and comes back with his rank decayed by 300 points. Suddenly he is basically smurfing on the other team which is fun for neither team

FACEIT in NA is like severely deflated for me. Every other lobby I've had is something like 1-3 Level 10's with under 100 games played and some random Level 5 with the most kills.

I didn't even realize theres so many level 10s now. the inflation must've been insane during this year because i remember late 2020 there was around 60k.

IMO: Instead of needing 150 elo to progress through a level u should need 200 or something like that.

facts who cares about elo stop dreaming that you gonna go pro after reaching some elo its not gonna happen
2021-10-17 07:12

its inflated because of the games with high elo difference, +1 for winning team -0 for losing team and in the past even +10 / -0
2021-10-17 10:05
"so new players inflate the elo so much cuz they get 1000elo free instantly when they register" I registered on faceit in 2014 and if Im pretty sure I also got that 1000 elo free so idk whats your point? Whole thread is bullshit. Of course people are BETTER in the game now since years passed and they kept playing/grinding/training. That's normal lol. I was a god back in 2013/2014 because I played a lot of CS 1.6 before so I had some CS experience (many people who started with GO didn't). Now I'm not a god anymore because other people nerd 8-10 hours every day and I don't and eventually they surpassed me

+1, smart ruski, I have already said in a previous thread that the elo should be lost if you are inactive. It is obvious that 2K elo today is like being LEM in 2017, there is no prestige to that, it has really become shit on the other hand I think you are abusing concerning the 3000 of elo, it remains hard enough to achieve it, at least in SoloQ. On the other hand, so that people do not cry about their ELO which disappears, they should do as on ESEA by posting on the profile the maximum elo having been obtained like as a trophy.
2021-10-17 13:26
3k elo solo q is still really good though, but agreed, elo is inflated.

Or make ranks beyond ten so they have more meaning
2021-10-17 14:44
As a long time inactive faceit 10: I don't like this at all, cause that means I'll have to play again, but it's still a good idea lol

Crying for no reason. That's how elo is supposed to work with a bigger playerbase. It sorts itself out. If 2k elo is meaningless then that's what it is, get a higher elo or stop crying. And btw elo is not inflated because of inactivity, it is because a lot of bots are boosted there. 2k elo is infested with boosted bots who don't even know basic smokes and have 0 gamesense. Inactivity reset won't solve anything if these boosted players keep playing.

"new players inflate the elo so much cuz they get 1000elo free instantly when they register" Are you new on FACEIT? You could start with 4lvl back in the days and first 4 matches were for +150 elo. You could easily get 8lvl after four matches if you win them
2021-10-17 15:48
Why exactly is it a problem that there is higher elos now? The playerbase is larger, the skill cap is higher, so therefore there is a higher elo range to more precisely match players. I don't see the issue
