And I'll be doing top 10 world wide based on win ratio in combination with most duels completed. (the exact math is a secret, unless you know math then you can figure out.

Here is a screenshot of my progress. I think that I can have it done by March 1st (I have a real life too!!!) I can have it done a little faster if I could find volunteers that know php and javascript. (ill do the html and css all on my own ;P)
So we will know the best 10 hybrid shadows/sins in the world? Awesome.

1v1 is flawed in any mmo unless you are dueling a mirror. I would slaughter my marauder with my scoundrel. I would destroy my marauder with a sniper. I would beat the sniper with a scoundrel and I would beat all of the above as a hybrid sin/shadow.

Not saying you are stupidly overpowered or anything, just saying that a 1v1 ranking is pointless.

Now if you want to do the same thing with 3 v 3? That might be more interesting. Limit it to 1 tank (guard) and one healer. Could be fun.
Einstein's relativity work is a magnificent mathematical garb which fascinates, dazzles and makes people blind to the underlying errors.
