the questions is: why some bots have 10 games in the past and at the same time some bots have only 4 games. They have similar rank, so they should have same "next_game_priority". Isn't it?

And some of us are stuck way down in the rankings because we have only played four total games, three of which are 1-v-1 games against starter-ish bots, with the 4th match being 3-handed. Hard to make much progress in the rankings by beating a single weak bot.

Sigma is not the same as game count. You can sometimes be more unsure of a rank after a game happens.

Example:
You won 2 games in total, but you play a third game and you end up last. At that point you would like to play more games just to be sure you're actually supposed to be on top.

From quickly looking through the "lastest games" list, I obverse a strange behavior. It appears most players selected in the latest games already have a large number of games played (8, 10 or even 16), while most of the contest participants are still at 4 games played. I'm wondering what makes the pairing algorithm prefer these players. Is it because they now have a lower sigma (from having played more games), and thus are seen as a better benchmark for the seed player?

As i suspected. The discrepancy of the game amounts is due to the trueskill matchmaking.
They'll all even eachother out after cutoffs.

Janzert wants at least 10 games for everyone.
