          Can we have a change to make games not forever with the last few people in?
          Time limit?
          Increase their deaths +1 until someone is on 9?

            Would have to be done pretty thoughtfully for it not to muck up the ratings.

            Is there anything that can be done that doesn't affect the score? For example, warping them to specific locations after each death, or (in the case of WB games) notifying of coords on each death.

            We could look at a warp to a special 1v1 arena once it reaches that stage?

              Tbh the ratings system is part of the problem. The more ppl care about winning the longer games drag on for. It's a meme at the moment that everyone's playing like Jessup. So I don't give the slightest fuck about removing the ratings system entirely and then implementing one or both of those ideas.

              Edit:

              Make time part of the formula, like how spiders are rated in kills-per-minute in basing. Kills-per-minute is really low at the end of the game, so this would mean your rating gets worse if you drag out the game.

              The risk with that is that someone who doesn't care about rating just drags out the game.

              The solution to that is to remove the win bonus. So someone can legitimately spec for rec.

              So basically the rating formula is: (KPM - DPM)
