@pryanichek said in I cri everytim:
after the first 5-10 defeats in the ladder without a single chance, beginners simply have no desire to play it further
It would be nice if the ladder algorithm didn't assume "there's a big chance this new player might be 1100 rated" and instead always looked for very weak opponents for the first 3 games.
It's a lot less burdensome to ask an 1100 to play against 3 weak opponents when they first join the ladder than it is to ask a 200 to play against 900, 1000, 1100-rated people.
Like we're worried if the next Blodir comes to FAF and gets on the ladder and the first 5 matches are too easy, he might quit. But we're not worried about discouraging hundreds and hundreds of new people who are starting at the bottom. And we're not worried about wasting the time of 1k-rated players by feeding them noobs for no reason.
Telling new players that their first 5 ladder matches are likely to be terrible so just grit your teeth and suffer through it is a meme at this point.
