comment ELO ranking system: what's a good start rank?
I believe that's a bit overkill for my purposes. I just want to design a system that gives a roughly fair initial ranking to new comers to the system. My initial thought was to always give new comers an initial rating equal to the system's global average and keep them at a high K level for the first 30 provisional games. Does that makes sense or do you see any problems with that approach?
