    Here's what I think we could change for Jan:
    1) Decrease rating by more at start of the month so very casual people and new players can end up in similar range so new players can find games more easily.
    2) Have a Top 250 and award prizes for those top 250. This brings the competition to more people

    I like the old reset to 0. It forced top players to prove it every month.

    I agree with you about top 20 comment.

    In regards to your first point, I think if you will reduce rating more, maybe we should just make our way back to the total reset. I think you will find a great amount of players calling for a full reset.

    Top 250 is awesome. With growth to population, it is getting tougher for players to place for prizes Iím sure. It is a generous gesture/idea on your part for sure.
    I myself like the idea of reset if only for new players coming in at 0 rating. I saw a match going on with 8 vs 80. Hardly see that and I wondered how long it took them to get a match.

    I like Gondos idea with a total rating reset. Everybody starts the same and those who are talented and have the time rise to the top.

    Plus faster seasons would accomidate many players....like, if I can't play a lot first 2 weeks season then maybe I have more time next season. It doubles, at least, the amount of seasons a year giving more players a chance to place and win some prizes.

    Reset rating to a default at start of each season. I don't think 0 rating would be the best idea since it doesn't leave room to drop unless you let people go into the negative. Set everybody to 100 or 200 at the start of the season and sink or swim from there.

    Yes. I have seen comment about that as well. Then, they receive no answer for sometime because most of us are chatting on Telegram not global chat. I try to come in and say something to them but I worry maybe it is too late and I may have missed them.

    I also like the idea of a default setting. I always felt 200 was a good spot. Usually, after some games in, you can easily be at 200 rating. This makes things tough for starters at 0. Maybe it wouldn’t be any different from 0 though xD.

    I think resetting to 200 would be good. It helps with getting games if you start later in month. At zero it takes a long time to get matched.

    Reseting everyone to 200 should be enough, and also sounds more fair imo. The cumulating points over the seasons makes no sense for me. If you wanna get 1st place you should conquer that inside the season, and not through seasons

    Overall, I think I have heard from most that majority would like a default or full reset to 0.

    I wish people would come from Telegram and chat about it here. Do agree though about peoplemhaving a hard time from 0 even one week in.

    Although, if season were set to 2 weeks, I wonder if it would be a problem.
