I just ripped off my entire toenail on my pinky toe. Should I put something over my toe or just leave it alone?

Use some hydrogen peroxide to clean the wound. You won't even feel a thing.

Never heard of a permanent rank lock. What causes that to happen?

No such thing in H3.

Will everyone start at 1? Will there be a overall TS#?


Yes. What do you mean by TS#?

Moody: No. His game will glitch and 343 will give it to him because they feel sorry for him.

Their presence is still relevant in the ranking system.


TrueSkill is almost never a zero-sum game, so those players who played a bit of rank but did not reach their max level pull the average down. Someone who played one game of TS and lost counts just as much as someone who played 500 and has a 50. That person who has a 50 is clearly a 50, but the guy who is a 1 probably isn't actually a 1.

You can belittle me all you want if that makes you feel good inside.


That's not belittling you haha. Also 10 posts per page? Is this 2001?

Because that's going straight on my CV if so!


I put "can quickscope on halo" on an application for a job I was massively overqualified for.

Answer my question and then I'll leave.



No one can answer why you like to peek in on your sister in the shower, nor does anyone here care what you do.
People like you are the reason why this board is the laughing stock that it is. The fact that the mods haven't deleted your post is an abomination.



To be more specific, posters like you are the reason why this board is a 'laughing stock'.

Just a little FYI for ya, kiddo.

Too lazy to search myself, so I'll ask here.

So are ALL playlists ranked? If so, what does that mean for guests?

Any playlist guests can enter now, they'll be able to enter after the ranking update.

That's why the actual average is lower than 25. The theoretical average is still 25. Trueskill ranks you against other members of the system, not some outside factor. It is mathematically impossible for the average to be over 25 without removing low ranked players from consideration. Someone has to be last place for there to be a first place.

What. No it's not. It's not a zero sum game.

Well to my knowledge guests can enter any playlist currently....I could be mistaken, though. How would the TS work for guests, then? Do they just count as a level 1 on your team when the system tries to match you up with similar skilled players?
