Just wondering about the game queue.
From the FAQ
"The game server queues all matches beforehand to make sure each bot plays exactly once against the ten bots ranked directly above and below itself. Depending on the queue length, it can take several hours before your bot starts playing matches, because a new queue is only created when the previous one is empty."
Anyone done the fancy maths to show how many games would be in the queue based on the current 86 people?
Also to Devs is there any way you could show the current queue?
So I can see when I have a match upcoming / see when the queue will end and a new one created. I think this would be a helpful feature.

how does the queue work anyway? If they generate 10 above you and 10 below you, doesn't that harm the chances of your bot doing well as other bots move within the league?
I suppose on average it balances out? Would be interesting to see the queue for sure; maybe even post an estimated time for next queue generation or something. Or an estimated time for your bot's next game?

Because of the ELO rating system everything balances out as it should. As for the next match timer, that would be a nice feature. I'll add it to our list.
