I played vanilla forged alliance with a friend for years, so I'm not a new player. We just started playing on FAF, but started off just playing each other in 1:1 matches for the first 50 games or so. But unfortunately I didn't realize this has screwed my ranking (we're both about 1300, since we are about equally matched). However I'm really more newbish, and end up not being able to join newb games. At the same time, skilled players expecting a true 1300 player are very disappointed.
I looked for a way to reset my rank, or create a new account, etc -- but it doesn't seem possible. Is there some other way to start fresh?
