Hi everyone

this goes to those responsible for the program
you know how I think about the program. We are not going to repeat the debate or discussion about the P TH code.
but if I would like to suggest one thing ...
currently the most played games are those of classification, it is the fastest to which almost everyone signs up.
This is fine for the server and participants activity, but it has a problem "from my point of view" there are many players who want to play the game now !!!
and what usually happens happens .... players you call them "bingo"
and it is normal. It is free, it does not cost money and people play as they want and they are fully entitled to do so. and this together with the P TH code makes some games take away the desire to play. because the software of the server or of whoever has tendencies to favor the position of the ranking. Ok, I don't want to go into whether or not it is how I think. I just want to make a suggestion.
What if the same classification games were made but by status? So you can only access those games based on your ranking? Let's say like soccer leagues ... 1st 2nd 3rd in such a way that the players of a certain position in the ranking can play in some games and not in others, because they do not reach the required score.
This would solve the bingo players, because at first they would all be in the same league, but as the ranking rises, the participation of happy players will be limited, with those who care about playing differently.
I don't know if with the translator and my mentality the suggestion I make is captured.
I no longer say that you modify the code "I see it impossible" but the same normalized the classification games

Cheers

Obviously it would sort out to some extent which is why I think it's a good idea in general. On the other hand chances are high that it wouldn't work on PokerTh that fluently.

Let's say you make three leagues: (1) average points up to 2.49 (2) average points from 2.50 to 4.99 and (3) everything above. Everyone could play the league of his level and the ones below. These are already very wide ranges and you couldn't make them much tighter yet still you often wouldn't find enough players of the higher leagues to fill a higher league table fast enough to be enjoyable or even to fill it at all. Keep in mind that you don't have a pool of thousands players being logged in at any given time but only two hundreds at peak (to my knowledge). The better the league the less common you could fill a table so often you would end up on a lower league table anyway.

There would be more and longer waiting times and many players probably would be confused because they don't keep up to their scores and can't simply join any game etc. The only real advantage would be keeping the real bad players in the lowest league but it could turn out that often you just need them to fill a table.

well, as I said is a suggestion.
I have not developed a possible model, and I suppose it would have many drawbacks.
You could also think of two categories based on the position in the ranking and opt for the first category of games of 5/6 players, due to the difficulty of completing them.

Don't wanna talk your idea down and it's not up to me anyways but I barely see it happen without changing the whole ranking games system. Besides you kinda already have a league system with leagues that gather more serious players: BBC and WEC with BBC even having a step system. Both 'leagues' just aren't connected to the ranking games that much.

What's been proposed by Malayerba is an old idea of mine, you can search my old posts, and i think he's right giving his reasons why, I proposed time ago that the ranking should be divided in 3 categories (1-300th, 301st-600th,601st to the last) and players could only play games with those of the same category so if they play well or are luckier than other players could easily jump category. With a span of 300 players shouldn't be a problem filling a table ...
