I call on Airmax, Bench and all da peeps,

I wish our profiles had a number which averaged the ELOs of the people we went against, but I guess it should use what their ELOs where when we went against them. This makes it easier to see who's noob-sniping and what not.

Whatcha think, peeps?

That's a great idea.

I like it. Now all we need to do is get Ore_Ele on board.

On a very basic level, it's a fallacy to assume that all noobs don't know what they're doing. Some do. Many do not. Noob sniping, though, isn't a bad thing because it's a measure to introduce new debaters into the site. I'd just hope that the people who do it don't scare people off. I think this idea isn't bad, but I'm not sure how it could work. I'd need more details before I could throw my support behind it.

If it were added separate, it could be a great idea. It could not be implemented as a leader board though

Example ( one person joins the site and beats a 5k person)

There average elo per debate would be be 5k on the first debate they win. Meaning people could just join or make new accounts, and then try to beat a high elo person and never touch the account again and it would be solidified in the leader boards.

Also people with lower number of debates would always have the higher elo average. Just glancing over some profiles in the top leader boards, it would be an extremely low average.

Take Danielle for example

She has like 300 debates or more. If you she took on 100 people that are over 3k, and then debates 200 people between 2-3k

She would only average 2.5k elo due to the massive number of debates

There are flaws that need to be tweaked but it is a solid idea.

This.

However, the framework of the idea is still good.

I like this idea a lot.
