Is this valid now? (matchmaking update?)


Yep


I have just thought about this. It may be a waste without a bit of "slack" for the ghost.

Say a ghost is pretty good for his score, but he is picked by people raising quick or stronger ones, so it is losing a couple of games and gets inactive. That's a pity.

I understand the wish to avoid keeping around ghosts that gets farmed, but then reduce the "losing 150 points from the original score to be deactivated" to, say, 50. This to allow the ghost to lose a little towards stronger players and then rebound towards weaker ones.

Otherwise one risks that new ghosts, that may lose immediately but aren't that bad, get deactivated.

Another way may be - but I am not sure how complicated can the function about ghosts be, as it produces computational load - "if the ghosts is under his original score after X games (say, X = 30), then deactivate". As it gives the ghost a bit of time to stabilize before being punished from being farmed by stronger player.

I still think that the approach of the "best score deployments or deployments higher than the highest personal ghost" plus the 150 points deactivation threshold would be a tad better but the problem of this is that I can only work with examples that one may claim being away from the actual matchmaking.

It should be rather easy to add a condition on the match count. Your other proposition is way more complicated and I'm still not convinced by it.

My other proposition is more complicated? Then I explained it poorly as it should be simpler than the match count for each ghost.

In any case even adding a minimum of matches before deactivation is ok.

Technically more complicated to implement.

Quick request to check if I understood.

Miojo last ghost is actually disabled right? Because it didn't get picked in those days. https://stats.gladiabots.com/player?&na ... ostMatches

His last active deployment was 2296 and the ghost went recently under it.
