The server calculates a reliability factor for each player according to their actions in the past few weeks.
This value is influenced by many different things, for example if their settings are correct, if they had a timeout in a game, or if they have unannounced vacations, etc.
The value is always between 0 and 10.
New players start at 3.5.
After they set up their basic settings such as the country code, gender, real name, birth year, this value goes up to 5.
If they successfully start few games and also finish them in order, without timeouts, silent vacation, the value raises around 6.
As they finish more games, and as the time goes without any problem with them, the value still raises.
Players with many months of membership and with a lot of games and without any problems can go over 9.
This may help players to find the right opponents, and may give them an approximate view about their future opponents, without personally knowing them.
Protecting serious club members, players with too low reliability (less than 5) can't enter for new tournaments.
