Afaik this is something that needs to be done by autohosts and Licho's autohost already does this, it's just a matter of getting optional support for autobalance in spads and lobby hosts.
Actually, Springie-ELO retrieving system has been implemented and tested in SPADS about 10 monhts ago. It's just disabled currently because I don't think using ELO indexed on player names would be effective in BA world, where players rename every day... As explained here, I'd rather use account IDs to index ELO. Maybe ELO is indexed on account IDs now, but I didn't get answer last time I asked.
Give client-side support and display ELOs for each player in the lobby.
Already done in SpringDownloader.
Base it on playerIDs.
Yes please. Basing it on names is a bad idea imo. I can't even change a tag without Springie forgetting me, and /stats treating me as newb with 0 games played...
I would very much like the Elo system integrated in all autohost. From my experience it works really well on Springie CA autohosts. On the other hand the rank based balance on Spads BA hosts is very unreliable and stacked games happen much more often.
