My question is, where is the developer/admin response on this 20 day old thread? If you make a thread criticizing moderation you get an admin on your post in 10 seconds, yet here you don't even get a response, lul.
You are mixing up "developer" and "moderator" here. They are not the same job at all.
WHR and the ladder-rating system bolted on top of it to provide an interface more pleasant for human emotions is a complicated mess and, as far as I know, is easy to break with ill-informed meddling (if only because it is difficult to fully test a change before pushing it to the live server).
This leaves us with two facts:
and maybe Licho
are the only (infra)devs who, as far as I know, consider themselves competent to meddle with the rating system
* Those two developers don't have much time at the moment
and until one of those facts changes this probably isn't getting fixed and there isn't much useful for me to say about it.
If somebody makes an ticket at https://github.com/ZeroK-RTS/Zero-K-Infrastructure/issues
maybe it will make it onto Licho's todo list.
Alternatively I suppose the coredevs may just make the decision to pull the plug entirely on the ladder-rating interface, or even WHR entirely, if it is decided to be more trouble than it is worth.
