While it's not official, I was pretty happy to find that someone on Reddit is posting a monthly ratings leaderboard. Even happier to find out I'm on it

https://www.reddit.com/r/twilightstruggle/comments/4u9sjp/pl...

Of course Ziemowit is right up there. Is EZGame anyone from this forum?

I am on the list (Makis B)! However it is good to know that the top players on the list don't play many games therefore their ratings don't change much. Those that have played hundreds of games including myself are in the 1900-2000 zone. Also if you play against opponents below the 1700 mark like i do and you lose then your rating drops drastically.

Why for this life there's no man smart enough, life's too short for learning every trick and bluff.

Ooh, I'd scrape in at 24. Still, that list is going to be really incomplete.

Makis B, you've absolutely earned your rating. Our game this evening saw me (Ghostbuster) lucky enough to play Red Scare/Purge on you FOUR TIMES and you still won in final scoring. Very well played!

Also there's a player called "angrylittlenian", [edited, sorry] current rating 2005.

Out of interest what do the games stats look like for these top players?

With 6 accounts over 2000, I think using glicko system in this luck-driven game makes player impossible over 2300(if not intentional feeding),and also the leaderboard is not as useful as AREA rating IMO.

It's hard to say how accurate these top ratings are, due to a severe rating bias among the opponents played. In other rated games (like chess), as well as with AREA rating for TS, rating of the top players is based mostly on the games they play against each other, or against opponents of at least very significant strength (so it would be perhaps 1900+ on Steam). On Steam it is very hard to find even a 1900+ opponent, so I have played most of my games against players rated 1700-1900. From 100 or so games I don't believe I've had more than 3 against opponents with rating higher than 2000.

And then there's that. The top 10 list kind of loses it's meaning if half of it is one guy :-) Not that I'm not guilty of the same "crime", having two 2100+ accounts as well.

And why would a ceiling be bad? Isn't the idea of a ratings system to find your "true" strength, at least until somebody improves?
