A player with no record has no handicap. It is only after they establish a winning or losing streak that the handicap starts to fill in, to match their skill level against the rest. How is a player going to smurf that, again? If you constantly make new accounts you're doing nothing but wasting your time. If you deliberately lose games just to keep your handicap high, your lousy gaming record will speak for your lousy skill.
Hey, guess what, a handicapping system that only takes how many loses one side has won't work anyway.
Example: Player A is awful, he has lost 10 games, so he has a -10 handicap
Example: Player B is the best player in the game, he has won 50 games lost 2, he has +48
in your system player A would get lets say double resources
Example2: Player C is awful too, he has lost 10 games, so he has a -10 handicap.
Example2: Player D is decent, he has won 1 game and lost 0, that gives him a +1.
In your system Playey C would get double resources.
My examples by proxy prove you're an idiot. Stop breathing my air. Your arrogance knows no bounds, you act like you know more than us, and we're just shooting down a great idea for no reason. When guess what, I know I have and I bet he has as well, I've actually seen games with handicaps, and it sucks. The best players just make smurfs over and over and just grief noobs because they can't play at all without their handicap. So again, stop acting like you know what the **** you're talking about when clearly you don't.
And honestly, if you try and suggest tying it to accounts and limiting it to one Nickname per, I'm just gonna laugh at you for opening that can of worms and let someone else explain why that's retarded.
(Hint: The way you suggested with only one side of the scale mattering means it doesn't work, but if both sides matter you end up with Player D being Player B's smurf account, so again. Idiot, my air, stop breathing it. Stupid mouth breathing idiots acting like they know what they're talking about piss me off.)
You suggest you want a handicapping system, yet you don't even know how to implement one, let alone give decent suggestions for it.
I don't even know why I humor these pointless posts, they'll never happen, maybe I just enjoy making people look stupid? Yeah, I do. Does that make me a bad person? Probably.
So anyway, enjoy your non-existent handicap that won't even work much less be implemented. I'll be playing age of Conan as this game dies while I wait for SCII and Demigod.
