Community Poll about ELO on NSL servers

Community Poll

    EDIT: No change in the near future. No ELO at all. Keep it as it is now.

      Congratulations to everyone who participated in our first Open Tournament and to our winners: MoreMoralThanPhoen, we hope you enjoyed it. More information to come about our next tournament in a couple of days.

      Back to the topic now. We do have the ability, if we want it, to enable vanilla ELO on competitive servers (by "vanilla ELO", we mean the exact ELO system you can currently see on public servers without any adjustment for competitive play). As we believe doing so would bring advantages but also inconveniences, your opinion is required. What do you guys think? Four options that we can think of:

      • Enable vanilla ELO for any round played on NSL servers, including gathers, scrims and matches.

      • Enable vanilla ELO for gathers only or/matches only or/scrims only.

      • We should try to design our own NSL ELO system, disconnected to vanilla ELO and adjusted to our liking. Vanilla ELO will remain disabled, meaning it will not affect your ELO on public servers. Such a system would require programmers skills to make it working on all our competitive servers using our own data and values. We would also need some place to collect all this data. Not sure yet if ensl.org can do it.

      • No ELO at all. Keep it as it is now.

No ELO at all. It works fine now. And I think enabling will hurt tournaments and scrims. I mean are there actually NSL players that don't play anymore because they disabled elo on comp servers. It serves no purpose too as gathers and tourneys are all teams u pick not shuffled.

Enable vanilla Elo for all rounds

Not for picking teams or whatever @vman but because the system is good for the game as a whole and right now it is being deprived of almost all data in existence on high-level play

It's super obvious that NSL influence on the hive ELO harms hive system itself and ns2 community as a result.

My argument for Vanilla ELO:
-This might entice new players to join since they can get ELO on our servers too.
-A lot of people play only Comp and no pubs so it's the only way to get ELO.
-More data on games etc.

My argument against Vanilla ELO:
-Would make people less worried about losing ELO and more willing to (re)play a round, overall leading to more efficiency in games.
-Less BM/drama/bickering about who has more ELO.
-Less potential ELO farming (I dunno about this one tbh).


I would vote for no ELO at all.

We have Competitive AmarBot for people to brag about their stats now.

I'd be in favour of an NSL only ELO. Should give people an accurate representation of their skill and might make seeding future seasons easier.

If that can't be done I am for no ELO at all.

NSL Server only Elo would be the best
we should work towards that.

Then you have something to brag about on ensl servers and indeed makes seeding far faster on every "Contest"



if that cannot be done leave it at no elo at all on NSL Servers.

Keep it disabled because I got all my ELO in pub and I don't want the actual good people to take it
