How bad is elo decay?

#1bookwormzzzzPosted 11/30/2012 12:39:32 PM
I leave for the Airforce for about 2 and a half months for training and won't be able to play for that time. If I quit now in the 1400's after 2 months will I come back to 1200's or worse or is it not that bad?

Elo decays at a rate of 25 elo per 4 consecutive weeks of inactivity. The reduction in elo is only applied after the end of every 4 week cycle. Elo cannot decay under 1400.

Since you are 1400+ and gone for 2 and 1/2 months. You will lose a maximum of 50 elo. If you are under 1450 you will come back with 1400 elo.

Hope this helps^^

didn't they take out decay when they made it based off top rating?

LOL.

So getting >= 70 on the asfab means one has a high IQ, in your reality?

Well in that case I can understand your respect for anyone who makes it in the Airforce because you clearly wouldn't make it.
