100th victory: 5/11/2016 13:21:53

A few days ago we've reached our 100th vitory in ladder in 129 games. We wanted to boast to win that many games ;) and to ask who won more? Who played more?

We know that there are pairs that play more and longer together than we do (me and Ruil). There are: Rocky and Doga currently out of ladder with 158 games, Robert E Lee and B-COOL (the widowmaker) 300 games (WOW), ΜΑΚΕΔΩΝ and Iceman with 196 games, Furacão.BR and Xande38 with 175 games and probably many other awesome teams.

What do you think about the idea of thread with latest and all-time records? If it's possible of course, cause I don't know if anybody gathers such data.

Congratulations on your 100 win. 100/129 is a 78% victory rate which is really impressive!

About gathering data on the 2v2 ladder, You should contact Knyte.

Ah but its not as cool when you've stalled and picked your opponents.

But still congrats on that many 2v2 ladder games played with one person.

Thanks for congratulations, but are you talking about us with stalling and picking opponents?

Sure. Why we did this? After this game we had 27 wins and no losses. We barely reached 1st place. System that counts points is disastrous and we've shown it. But again - nobody wanted to see it.

We saw it and it was been honoured. But stalling one game destroys everything.

If you become #1 with more unexpired games it's awesome, if not, everyone knows you deserve it cause with 15 games you'd be #1.
Now i think nobody sees your max rating as legit

Honoured but nothing changes. End of story. One week ago or something our victory again low rank team (~1400) has expired and guess what. We've earned 20 points. It's ridiculous. Our non-legit rank does not hurts that much as this.

We still are no 1 team and try to play as fast as possible to keep it this way. And indictment of stalling is a bit exaggerated, because we've played more games than you with your both teammates.

I know that the way ratings work are to a high degree disadvantageous for players with many games. It's sad indeed. I know that good enough from the 1vs1 ladder.

You may deserve first rank, but as buns implyied, it was sad and unnecessary to stall.

I disagree with you both. System's defects should be pointed out at any cost. Last days was organized big questionnaire about future changes in ladders. I haven't seen any changes in ranking system.

I disagree with you here. In pointing out the system's defects, you have adversely impacted another team. You cannot respect the playing field, but you want to be respected/glorified for your win streak?

The fact that you have played for so long with one person is remarkable, but I agree with Buns/MoD, it is not as cool, given your stalling.

I don't want to glorify any of our achievements. I accept playing field but don't respect it as long as it's unfair. Why you suggest that we've impacted another team adversely? The win is still there. It will appear a week later or something. Often you have to stall a little just not to get the game against low-rank opponent. Because you do so, right? If one team has games only against >2000 rank opponents, they have to end the game a few hours later, to check what opponents are available for the new match.

Clearly someone hasn't done this to you. If you were to miss out on #1 due to such stalling, I'm sure you would sing a different tune.

We have never stalled a match to pick opponents, so I don't know what you are on about.

Two wrongs don't make a right, and an eye for an eye, leaves the world blind.

You gamed the system when there were those around you who didn't. The system is not perfect, but no system is. Anyone can justify their actions by blaming the flaws of the system. That is never a valid excuse.

Point out the flaws by all means. Come up with valid alternatives. But don't abuse those flaws to artificially improve your statistics. You are better than that.

Congratulations on winning 100 games together. Well done on breaking the win streak record, and I hope you learn from your mistakes and set a better example to newer teams.
