Restrict table access to a minimum ELO?

Post by RexGoodheart » 14 October 2019, 15:39

Ever give that any consideration? For example, somebody with just one game experience who has achieved 100 is allowed at most tables.... Maybe include an option for a minimum ELO? Sometimes even with "Strong" games we might want to limit the game to 400+ ELO. That way we can be snobs when we're in the mood. :)

This is already a feature. It's under the 'restrict access' button when creating a table.

That's not correct. Presently you can restrict table access by Beginner, Apprentice, Average Player, Strong Player, Expert, Master

That's not the same as restricting players below a specific ELO. For example, the range for "Strong" players is 300 to 499. That's quite a range. The "Average" player is often a 100 with only one game experience.

Not a high priority request, obviously, but I'd like to be able to exclude the 100's and 300's at times.

That's not correct. For 2 beginners, you will get 30 ELO for your 1st win.

Given the rankings are given by ELO rankings, you are filtering by ELO ranking, just preset numbers.

Just select 'Strong and above' for 300+

I can't explain this much better than I already have.... sometimes I'd want 400 and above. Or 150 and above. Without inflicting the indignity of kicking out somebody.

Oh. You want to be able to like... type a specific number to exclude below.

I think that's unnecessarily complex and wouldn't add much value. Elo is not SO precise a tool that these pre-chosen ranges are not granular enough.

Adding this feature would be good. Someone stuck at 100 can wreck some games.

Correct. It's already a feature for Reputation, would make a nice feature for ELO. As asd1234 suggests, sometimes a very poor player is stuck at 100 when his true ELO should be near zero.

You can always add this to the presentation for the table and then just boot people who don't meet the criteria.

True... but it's sort of rude to boot somebody. But, like I said, it's not a high priority item.
