Yes, he means the rank progress bar from supergiant to neutron star shown on the user page. Indeed, this can appear a bit strange because it depends a lot on the distribution of other players.

Possible solutions: Make ranks depend on constant whr number thresholds independent of other players. Another possibility that would only weaken the effect is to show a bar for ladder progress from 0 to 100% in the whole player base, not only own precentile. In any case, color scale could be made continous additionally.

To me personally, it doesn't really matter too much which of those measures is taken or if it stays as it is and you just have to be aware that it also depends on others.

Furthermore, I think that the current WHR standard deviation cutoff to translate between real WHR and visible WHR should be increased from 20 to 25.

Archangel if your skill stays at the same level, and everyone elses does as well, no matter how many games you win or lose, you will stay at the same rank progress bar place. This means that when you play enough and WHR has you accurately placed, the adjustments to your rank will get smaller and smaller until you don't really gain any rank, unless you learn and improve your play, or you get worse and start losing (which can also happen periodically).

Kill everyone you play against and then u will get higher on the ladder,then kill the top 10 and get purple.Or wait untill everyone drops form the ladder.

Step 1: Get mexes.
Step 2: Get E.
Step 3: Make units.
Step 4: Cook lobsters.

Ez guide to winning at zk. Most are already failing at step 1.

Actually you could even change your gem color if the skill of everybody remains constant by changing your playing frequency such that your max(20, whr deviation) changes.

This is expected. Zk population is dying down again and only the most invested players remain. Those tend to be better than average, so you now need to perform better than before to stay in the same percentile.

For example, looking at the top 20 you'll see mostly old players which are probably going to stay around. If the player base reduces to pre-steam size, you'd need to be on that list to attain your current rank.

it is designed to do like that, but it doesnt actually do like that.

As stated, it is only true for a constant player base. Now you can also use it to serve you - by recruiting many new players. They'll fill up the lower ranks and you'll get all the nice colors!

The real way to gain elo is to not play. As soon as I started following the spec way of life, sigero and godde lobbed themselves. Soon I was #2. Then randy made the mistake of playing and I somehow got #1 by speccing.
