Whether you like or hate current ELO, post your ideas for how to make it better here!!
Here's mine: As I mentioned in another thread, DT rewards have grown so much that they completely overshadow ELO rewards for all but a handful of consistently amazing players.
ELO is IMO the hardest mode there is. How about some random incentives for players who aren't constantly in the top 100? Let's call these... "ELO boxes."
Here's how an ELO box would work: After playing a certain pseudo-random amount of games above 1200 rating (for example, 10-15 games) a player would receive an ELO box. These could be opened, with some flashy, special-looking animation on the website, and might reveal...
50%: Small prize: A few hundred Clintz, 30 tickets for the slot machine, small chance of a random common card.
30%: Medium prize: A credit, 50 tickets, somewhat small chance of a thousand clintz, small chance of a random uncommon card.
15%: Large prize: 2-3 credits, 200 tickets, somewhat small chance of two thousand clintz, small chance of a random rare card.
5%: "Jackpot" Prize: 10 credits, 3 credits plus a random uncommon card, 1 credit plus a random rare card, etc.
...and one Lucky "Jackpot" box winner per day would receive a CR valued at 50k clintz or more.
Interestingly enough, this sort of incentive would also give good players a reason to try to beat their old scores, since falling out of Top 100 wouldn't mean you've effectively reduced your chances of winning anything good to 0.
