For much of 2020, my Replay goal was to get my ranking to under 1000. I struggled and struggled, and it seemed like it was always just out of reach. No matter how many chips I won each day, it seemed like I was just keeping pace with everyone else. I finally broke into the top 1000 players on the site just as the year was ending, and then promptly went on a slide and dropped about 7M chips.
When I hit my peak bankroll I was about 41.6M, and I’m currently at 39.3M. Yet, my Replay ranking is better than ever – I just checked in and it’s 919. When I was at 41.6M, I think my ranking was around 960-980, something like that? Apparently about 100 players ranked higher than me just went on huge slides in the last few days, as I’ve been clawing my way back up from my own slide.
It’s a pretty meaningless number that I don’t have a whole lot of control over, but it’s curious to me how much it’s changing lately.
