ELO ranking and stability

Sunday 12/09/2010, 05:32

Hello - I use this deck(http://www.urban-rivals.com/presets/?id_preset=1494141&list) to get to 1200 and can usually reach 1300, but then I don't seem to be able to stay above 1300. Any tips? I like playing mono alot better so my bonus is 'safe'. I have 71% of the collection, but my most filled out clans are the Pussycats and Freaks - who both go really well with Jungo.

Other decks I've been using:

http://www.urban-rivals.com/presets/?id_preset=1484500&list(Gets me near 1200 at least)
http://www.urban-rivals.com/presets/?id_preset=1480152&list(This is for survivor but still ELO compatible)

Please give feedback!

I personally think GHEIST makes a very good mono. But they are usually missing one spot (either 2 or 3*) so I tried something different. http://www.urban-rivals.com/presets/?id_preset=1498731

Rasin, answering honestly as this will enable us to give you the best feedback, how many games does it usually take you to reach 1300e?

Let's see...I played quite a few matches on Tuesday, ending up around 1100 then took a break and got to 1200 in less than 20 matches. Took it easy then tried for 1300 on Thursay(13:12 Elo you won by forfeit against Demon_DanteIB, IMPERIAL BLOOD (9-10): 1345 ELO). Tried to get higher on Fri/Say but it went downhill. So I guess to answer your question:

~40 matches - 1100>1300
~25 matches - 1000>1100
Total: ~55 matches

Yeah I lost some, so maybe round up to 60-70 to get where I want to be?(1300)

Well, that's probablly why you struggle when you hit 1300e+.

Same as me.

When you hit 1300 you lose more for a loss than you gain for a win, so you need to be scoring winning streaks to progress. If you can manage to progress to the point where you can achieve 1300e in 30-40 games consistently, you'll be closer to the level of skill acquired to push past your record.

That's what I'm currently aiming for, to get consistently effortless 1300e.
