Well obviously, but you wouldn't try and argue that the ability to have some high priced choice cards in your deck doesn't make a difference to any kind of player would you?
But the point i was trying to make is that there is no continuity between weeks and because of this the format suffers, you can win a handful of games against any type of player: people who are obviously quality players down to complete novices, and then be unlucky enough to meet another couple quality players who know what to do with a big budget, who, because they are just starting elo
for the week drag your ranking down disproportionately.
If players kept say a proportion of their elo
score above 1000 from the previous week (eg. if it was 40% a player finishing the previous week with 1500 would begin the next on 1200) then there would be far less randomness in quality of opponent and people unfamiliar with the format could attempt to work their way up to consistently better levels of competition.
Think tennis for example, andy Murray
doesnt run the risk of meeting rafa nadal in the first round of every tournament does he? And Kramnik doesn't beat club level chess players every second game.
